My ‘Happy New Year’ Prayer


This is similar to the list that I posted for 2010. I pray the same for everyone this year and every year!

#in2011 I pray that people show LOVE at every opportunity and realize that the more LOVE you show, the more LOVE you will feel inside.

#in2011 I pray that people focus on trying to uplift one another rather than tear them down.

#in2011 I pray that people stop trying to be ‘better than the next person’ and focus on being a better version of themselves.

#in2011 I pray that people stop focusing on the ‘darkness’ of their past and open themselves up to the ‘light’ of their FUTURE

#in2011 I pray that people get out of unhealthy relationships and habits and surround themselves with LOVE

#in2011 I pray that before people pre-judge others and spread rumors and gossip, they put themselves in the others persons shoes and proceed with acceptance, kindness and LOVE

#in2011 I pray that people focus more of what they have and should be thankful for and not on what others have that they ‘think’ they should have

#in2011 I pray that people think of others more.  Stop the “me” and embrace the “we”. Help others in need if and when they can

#in2011 I pray that people think of their glass as half full – not half empty

#in2011 I pray that everyone SPREADS LOVE!

#in2011 I wish you all Peace, Love, Health & Happiness. May this be the year that your hopes and dreams become your reality. ♥

Best Idea for Humanity – Pixels for Peace


I have been following Matthew Fry on twitter for quite some time. His tweets are always positive, uplifting and filled with love.  Matt has entered a very important contest – one with a very special purpose. Please watch the video and after you’re done, please, please, please VOTE for Matt…and spread the word for others to do so, as well. If you can vote for your favorite ‘this or that’, forward ‘funny emails’, etc. you can certainly help someone who is trying to make the world a better place, right? 🙂

Thank you for your anticipated participation in helping Matt further his dream for humanity.

What is Your Take on Peace?


Today – September 21st – is the International Day of Peace.

For background info on how it got started, please watch the video ‘International Day of Peace’ on the ‘positive news & events’ page of this blog.

You don’t have to start a movement – but, one person at a time can make a difference. The little things do count.

WHAT will you do to spread the message of peace today?

Here is Lenny Kravitz’ ‘take on peace’. What is yours?

The Earth Song


written by: Michael Jackson

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain…
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine…
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth its weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

What have we done to the world?
Look what we’ve done.
What about all the peace,
That you pledge your only son?
What about flowering fields?
Is there a time?
What about all the dreams,
That you said was yours and mine?

Did you ever stop to notice,
All the children dead from war?
Did you ever stop to notice,
This crying Earth its weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don’t know where we are
Although I know we’ve drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Hey

what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can’t even breathe
(What about us)
What about everything
(What about us)
I given you
(What about us)
What about nature’s worth
(ooo, ooo)
It’s our planet’s womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
We’ve turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
We’re ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can’t we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can’t you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about baby boy
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What was us)
What about death again
(ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn

Aaaaaaaaah Ooooooooh

Imagine


written by: John Lennon

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 that 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 that 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
