Coexist VII - Imagine


Imagine no Memorial Day.
Imagine all children growing up in loving nurturing
homes, children never growing up to become Hitlers
or Husseins or Bin Ladens. Imagine God wiping
every tear from every eye - that will be Heaven,
and we must wait for heaven.

In the last days -they will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Isaiah 2:4

Imagine there's no countries. It's easy if you try. 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 live as one. John Lennon
John wasn't the only one. If you go to Strawberry Fields in Central Park now you will see other dreamers - every day of every week - just sitting there - imagining.

Beautiful, Diane. Imagine no war. Think of all we could do with the resources and human potential we saved.

Thank you for this.

Yes, I could imagine, but then there would be no passion, nothing to feel strongly about, and everyone would be exactly the same. Do we really want to walk around thinking about nothing but love all day and not doing anything.
War is not good but a life without passion and nothing that you would be willing to die for might not be so good either.
Just my opinion.

I can't help wondering if perhaps you interpreted John Lennon's words about religion in a different way then I did? Were you thinking of the many killings that resulted from misguided religious enthusiasm? That's not how I interpreted John Lennon's words! I thought his words "...and no religion too," meant that the world would be better off without religion at all!
I kinda agree with 'Happyone." In the Heaven I look forward to, everyone remains a unique individual, forever influenced by the countries from which they originated. In other words, while we all become one in Jesus Christ, we remain distinct personalities. Does that strike a bell with anyone? I would very much appreciate feedback on this subject as I have never heard anyone express the concept of oneness with Jesus Christ in this way! Edna
