Peace

We were talking - about the space between us all
And the people - who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth - then it's far too late when they pass away
We were talking - about the love we all could share
When we find it - to try our best to hold it there - with our love
With our love we could save the world - if they only knew
Try to realise it's all within yourself - no-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you.
We were talking - about the love that's gone so cold
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don't know, they can't see - are you one of them ?
When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come when you see we're all one
And life flows on within you and without you.
My favorite Beatles song illustrates best what I feel is the path to peace,
because we are truly very small, each and every one of us.
No one is so big that they have dominion over another,
to dictate how to live or who to love, or to take anothers life.
To see beyond ourselves is to find peace of mind and the human community,
because "with our love we can save the world" is not just a slogan.
We're all in this boat together on the planet Earth,
it's no good rocking it or stepping over others to gain the world.
Life flows on within us and without us,
life flows on without you or me.
My petty wants and desires are meaningless unless shared with the community,
because we are a community and none of us would be here today without that.
I don't know if there ever will be a day when we humans are truly at peace,
but it's a goal worth trying for, a lifeway without regret.

Beautiful, Paul. Love has always been the answer. Why do we forget that so often? If we humans could only remember the basics....

if love is the answer, is "How do we overcome greed?" the question?

Nicely done, Paul...

I guess Peace is more of a journey, not a destination...I don't know that we will ever "arrive" either...but it certainly is something to strive for...

The song actually went through my mind last night as I wrote my post. But seeing as how I am an overbearing pain in the ass..I am not quite so peaceful when it comes to achieving Peace.

Kudo's Paul and thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Lovely, and meaningful as well. Maybe if we are at peace within ourselves, it would be easier to spread it around. I think so.

Perfect, Paul. Love IS truly the answer.
