“Imagine… Today” (Day 6)

I expect to have the next chapter of “Nemesis” up tomorrow (yay!). In the meantime I’m posting this “oldie but goodie,” because, even though it was written nearly 20 years ago, I still believe in it today.  Maybe even more so today, with everything that is happening… 🙂

“Imagine… Today”

Lisa R. Palmer

(6-21-96)

Global Day of Prayer

Imagine a world without any sorrow…

     Full of Hope…

     and Promise…

     and Light.

Imagine a heart without any Emptiness…

     Feeling Love…

     and Compassion…

     and Joy.

Imagine a Spirit without any conflict…

     One who knows…

     and believes…

     and grows in us.

Imagine a Society without any war…

     Ruled by Tolerance…

     and Wisdom…

     and Peace through Trust.

Imagine a world where all this can be…

     That is whole and in balance.

          Where differences unite in a common purpose

          and live in harmony with All-That-Is

and Ever-Was.

Imagine a day when all this is possible…

     And all live together as One.

          When the Spirit of All

          joins the hearts of many

and the healing of each has begun.

Imagine a way to bring it about…

     and ask what you can do.

          Look to the future

          to All-That-Can-Be

and with sincere gratitude pray:

Not for the future…

     but for Today.
