Imagine

Our Vision for today was sent in by Marie Ginga from New Mexico. Marie says:

Hi Tony,
I heard “Imagine” today by John Lennon and, of course, it speaks to all you have devoted your life to. I offer it for a vision if you think it’s appropriate. I have taken liberty with a few of the words to keep it in present tense.

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 know today you’ll join us
And the world is all as one
Imagine no possessions
I surely know 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 know today you’ll join us
And the world is all as one

Peace,
Marie

We reprint Imagine with gratitude and appreciation for John Lennon – a true visionary of our time.

“Life gets better when you get better.”
An Unknown Author

Your action for today is to practice something that would enhance your life.

 

A Vision for Respecting Others

We see a world where we have all risen up and out of our impulse to feel or think that we are better than anyone else. We envision everyone having completely seen through our old patterns where we used to think that our way is the best way, or that our way is the only way. Thus, we have entirely stopped attempting to impose our will on those around us. Instead, we honor the uniquely created, personal path of each person we meet, and we do not interfere with it.

This single, simple response – that we now see all people as equal but different, and we allow them to live their lives without our meddling or interruption – has changed our world entirely. We now respect the religions, the beliefs, the politics, the values, and the evolutionary choices of all our fellow travelers, knowing that each person’s path has within it the means for taking them to their highest expression of joy and fulfillment.

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”
Writer, William Arthur Ward

Your action for today is to think of a problem or challenge you’re facing. Are you approaching it in a pessimistic, optimistic or realistic frame of mind?

 

A Vision for Sanity

We see a world where mankind and womankind have learned, beyond all doubt and distraction, that we, both individually and as a whole, are best served by creating a peaceful, compassionate, clean environment for ourselves to live and love in. We see the wisdom in refraining from judging, competing, overpowering, harming and killing one another. We feel the serenity that comes from helping our fellow travelers to rise to their highest potential; to live healthful, creative lives; to hold their anger in check; to find their calling in life; and to care for each other as we would want ourself to be cared for.

In the same way, we envision a world where we have purified our waters, cleansed our air, cleaned up our trash, begun to love the Earth and all Her plant and animal creatures, brought forth healthy foods, and blessed every other human being who comes our way. As a result of these changes in our behavior, we have brought sanity back to the peoples of the Earth, always to honor and protect it – and never to leave it again.

“To take time to think is to gain time to live.”
Writer, Nancy Kline

Your action for today is to think of something specific you haven’t thought about in a while. this can be a problem, an opportunity, a desire, etc. and focus on it for 3-5 minutes.

 

A Vision for the World

The Vision for today is a poem that was sent in by Mary Maskell. We love it and intend that you do to! Thanks so much, Mary. She writes:

I SEE THE WORLD AS WHOLE AND PERFECT
JUST AS ALL EXPRESSIONS OF GOD ARE WHOLE AND PERFECT

THE SKY IT IS BLUE
THE FIELDS THEY ARE GREEN
THE WEATHER IS WARM
THE SEAS THEY ARE CLEAN

PEOPLE SMILE
THEY HAVE NO CARE
THEY KNOW THAT GOD
IS EVERYWHERE

THERE IS PEACE ON EARTH
THE SUN DOES SHINE
ON PEOPLE LIKE US
AND ALL OF MANKIND

THE FLOWERS THEY BLOOM
THE GRASS IT DOES GROW
THE CITIES ARE PURE
AND LOVE IT DOES FLOW

THE PEOPLE DO KNOW
THAT WE ARE ALL ONE
POWERED BY THE SOURCE
LOVED BY THE SUN

THE HEAVENS REJOICE
WE FINALLY MADE THE GRADE
WORKING TOGETHER
A NEW EARTH IS MADE

SO BE IT
AND SO IT IS
FOREVER AND EVER
AMEN

MARY MASKELL

 

“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
Actor, Bing Crosby

Your action for today is to see if there is someone whom you’re trying too hard to please. If there is, then look at why?
