IMAGINE

 

"Imagine" is a song written and performed by English rock musician John Lennon. It is the opening track on his album Imagine, released in 1971. "Imagine" was released as a single in the United States where it reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also Lennon's only post-Beatle Australian Number one single, spending five weeks at the summit. When asked about the song in one of his last interviews, Lennon declared "Imagine" to be as good as anything he had written with the Beatles.[1] The song is one of three Lennon solo songs, along with "Instant Karma!" and "Give Peace a Chance", in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. Rolling Stone ranked "Imagine" the 3rd greatest song of all time in their editorial The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[2]

When I hear this song, it ALWAYS put things into perspective for me. As I strive to ALWAYS be FOR something, I realize that it takes less energy than being against the GREATER good. The compassionate nature within me forces me to seek out opportunities and to take part in charitable efforts benefiting both my community and the world at large. Since I sympathize with humanity’s struggles, my first instinct is to IMAGINE the world as it is meant to be…Because within each of us there is the potential to become a force of positive change, provided we are willing to follow the paths where our compassionate feelings will lead us. The inspiration for all of our charitable acts is empathy, which enables us to better understand the plight of those less fortunate than ourselves. When we accept that we are capable of making a difference even though our energy and resources are limited, we are empowered to go forth into the world acting as willing and enthusiastic emissaries of peace, health, and happiness. I know that my compassion will guide me toward opportunities to do good today when I heed its call. I will take with me the knowledge that in every moment I have a chance to bring light into the world; and when I bless others with the gift of my positive energy, instead of letting circumstances affect me negatively, I bring a little peace to the world every day…IMAGINE THAT!
