Dreaming of Peace

One of the things that is missing in our society today is the thriving of imagination and dreams.  Many of us have had our dreams crushed or been told they aren’t worth it or we could never pull that off, or we’ve had some stuff happen that have caused us to decide that our dreams aren’t worth it or we aren’t worth it.  As a result of this lack of imagination and dreams I think we’ve gotten stuck in our day to day lives and don’t dream about bigger and better things, all we can see is where we are and end up raging against it but not doing anything to change it.  What happened that we’ve given up on a better tomorrow?

The good news is there is hope: some people are realizing what a downward spiral we’re in and are sharing about hopes and dreams and possibilities again.  Because they know that we don’t need to give up on tomorrow and that tomorrow isn’t lost, because it isn’t.  It’s only lost when we refuse to see and be open to the possibilities.

However, in the case of peace and a better tomorrow only when we all do our part will it become a reality.  I can talk about peace all I want and do my best to be peaceable in my life and relationships, but unless that peace spreads, unless that hope in tomorrow spreads, and other people start spreading peace and hope in their lives, my impact on the world will be very small.  Just like one person cannot start a war unless others are behind them, neither can peace be successfully achieved without the support of a team.

That success starts with a dream of something better.  Will you join me in dreaming of a better tomorrow so we can start making plans for achieving it?

“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 be as one.” John Lennon
