Having been inspired by this song since the early nineties, I wanted to share it. However, after not being able to find it anywhere on YouTube, I decided to join, create my channel, and learn how to make a lyrics video.
While I am indeed a YouTube neophyte, I’m pleased with the result of this, my very first lyrics video! Of course if an Ad pops up you’ll need to click the ‘x’ to close it so you can read the lyrics.
It is my sincere wish that you will enjoy this inspiring song for world peace, written and performed by singer, songwriter, and activist Holly Near. We will have peace!
You may also enjoy my post from last year with another incredible song for world peace. I discovered Ella’s Song through Holly Near’s cover of it on her 1990 album Singer In The Storm. In this post you can enjoy a YouTube recording being performed by the exceptionally talented group, Sweet Honey In The Rock: http://professionsforpeace.com/2013/02/09/we-who-believe-in-freedom/
True imagination is not fanciful daydreaming; it is fire from heaven.
~ Ernest Holmes
“You simply cannot give to the world all that you have to give if you do not remain true to your own ‘selfish’ desires. You have a unique set of precious values that can only be fulfilled by pursuing what drives you the most: your passions and dreams. Could Thomas Edison have tended to the downtrodden as Mother Teresa did? Could Albert Einstein have preached salvation as Martin Luther King Jr. did? Could Abraham Lincoln have built cars like Henry Ford? Always, the masses benefit from the individuals who insist on marching to the beat of their own drummer.” ~ Mike Dooley
“The greatest thing a human being ever does in this world is to see something… To see clearly is poetry, prophecy and religion, all in one.” ~ John Ruskin
Today really look around at your world: your family, your home, your pets, your co-workers, and the strangers on the street. Smile at everyone you meet because you can see them. Never forget that the gift of vision was so important that when God created the world, the first command was for Light in order to see, and after the Great Creator was finished with each day’s task, He glanced back on his handiwork and “saw that is was good.” We need to see how good it is, too. ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
Faith sees the invisible, believes the impossible, and receives the impossible.
~ Corrie ten Boom
“We can transform our lives by changing the way we think about possibilities. We are prone to picture our future as an extension of our past. But we have no guarantee at all that our future will be anything like our past. The nature of a conscious shift is the release of an old belief system, replacing it with a new and grander one.” ~ Alan Cohen
Today’s Affirmation: I open my mind to the new and the better. I bring my vision to life with faith and action. I live in a universe far grander than I can imagine. Thank you God for this day!
