When I first created the Global Meditation Network back in 2012 it was with the idea of assisting others in creating a regular practice that would help them connect to a field of other like-minded meditators sharing the intention to raise the consciousness of the planet to a higher vibration of love and unity.

Today while in the shower I heard John Lennon’s Imagine on the radio and I have never heard the lyrics more clearly than I did today.Sometimes the lyrics have struck me as trite, or the general idea of the song as almost cliché.

Perhaps because I am tired on a Saturday morning after a long week of work and my defenses are down, I heard the lyrics as if they were coming from my very soul themselves, as if they were verbalizing the passionate core reason for being here right now, and the vision I see when I look at the world. Have you ever really listened to Imagine? This is the world I want to live in:



“Imagine” 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… Aha-ah…

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…



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

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…

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 live as one
