Memory Lane #2

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one


This song came out a half a century ago and Lennon´s dream is still in our hearts. I was struck by the very title of the song “Imagine” as only now are we beginning to grasp the fact that we create with our imaginations. There is great power in imagining how we want the world to be. Imagine seven billion people holding the thought of a world as Lennon sung about. Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive of, can be achieved.” We must first imagine what we want and then the Universe rushes forward to make it happen. These are not New Age “nice-nice” words, friends. This is how it works and if you have not started using this ancient wisdom to create the realities you wish, you are losing out on a life changing experience. Be at peace, dear ones, and join together to Imagine the world where love prevails….then take action to make it happen. hugs, pat

    Thanks for your hope and inspiration that one day, we can dream peace into reality. Blessed be.


  2. Yes, I am just now appreciating the depth of John Lennon’s legacy to us, the People of Earth ~
    I remember that December 8, 1980 when John was assassinated – I was in Cologne, Germany, walking along near the Cathedral where there is a large plaza and many people gather there. Some people started putting flowers and lighting candles at an improvised table with John’s picture on it. They told me what had happened.
    With Love,
    Imagining All the People!

      I never knew why he was killed. What is
      “The People of Earth”?


      • I don’t know of any investigation beyond that the assassin was probably mentally disturbed. Lennon had been in the news for his and Yoko Ono’s peace campaign – he was definitely becoming a very strong spokes person against the brain-washing of the modern culture.
        I wrote “the People of Earth” to say that John was someone who spoke to all on Earth beyond any cultural, religious or national identities.


  3. A beautiful post about a beautiful song with a wonderful message. Thanks Pat x
