You may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one.
I hope some day you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.
I have a vision of the world: where we all live in peace and harmony; where we treat all, including the Earth, with loving kindness; where each being has value and respect; where resources – money, oil, food, land – are shared and not hoarded; where collaboration and cooperation are the tools of interbeing.
I believe that: each act we perform that does not honor our oneness leads us away from that vision; each step away provides an opportunity to rationalize further divisiveness. We can justify cutting someone off on the highway, cheating a merchant, beating wives when football teams lose, performing atrocities in Iraqi prisons, killing others to show that killing people is wrong. We are not perfect, we all move away from the vision…often…regularly…and hopefully return again and again towards it.
What if we played Scrabble to get the highest board total instead of outscoring each other? What if each of us used our wit and intelligence to make the very best word that would also provide the best opportunity for others to make their best word?
