Imagine there’s no hating. . .
Imagination brings greater thinking, which brings new inspiration, which then bring revelation to new ideas and new paths to follow. Here are a few of the things I imagine:
I imagine a world where we do not overlook those in need, those living on the edges of our society; we pass them in the streets every day, ignoring their pleas for help. I imagine that these people no long need our help; I imagine a world where everyone is treated as being important. The Bible calls these people the outcasts . . .
I imagine a world of Love, the Love given by God, not an abstract Love, but a Love that means that when we meet someone we do not know, we greet them as long-lost friends, returning home to the comfort of compassion. Some may call this a paradise, I call this what Jesus instructed . . .
I imagine a world where words heal, not harm. Words have the power to change the world. If we change the way we refer to one another, perhaps respect will return to our society. Transforming our society from the nasty rhetoric we use today to a gentler way of speaking, we may in fact realize something precious that we have lost. I believe that the way we speak directs our lives. We need to speak in words of Love, not hate . . .
We need to imagine a world of truth, the truth Jesus spoke of throughout his life. Perhaps if we accept the true words of truth, not those professed by our leaders who agree that there are alternate truths. We cannot create truth . . .
So, in the words of Lennon, let’s imagine what could be possible. . .
