“There’s a voodoo mojo brewing at the go-go”–Bon Jovi
When John Lennon and Yoko Ono launched their “War is Over” campaign, a deejay asked them, “Isn’t that ridiculous? The soldiers, the Vietnamese? How can you tell them the war is over?”
John, as always, had the perfect answer.
“People need to remember that they’ve got the power—not the government or leaders or teachers.”
His belief that we’ve got to imagine it first was early law of attraction. Who knew? John Lennon may have been one of its first practitioners.
ACIM Lesson 75 (The light has come) is a campaign similar to Lennon’s inspiring campaign.
He and Yoko plastered the message “If you want it, war is over” on billboards all over the world —11 cities from Tokyo to Berlin to New York. They also distributed leaflets and ran full-page newspaper ads. When asked how much it cost, he said, “I don’t really know. But surely less than a human life.”
Yoko re-launched the campaign three months ago.
“When we drop small pebbles, it immediately affects the ocean of the whole wide world,” she said. “We’ll keep doing it. Together. We change and the world changes.”
So today, I’m celebrating my personal change. I’m celebrating that the light has come. I’m celebrating the beginning of true vision, a happy vision, a vision that will replace the other world I created by thinking it was real.
As the Course reminds me, in my thoughts and beliefs lies all power.
I will dwell not upon the past today.
I will see the world, bathed in light, as I’ve never seen it before.
And I will remember what John said, “We–all of us–have the power.”

Thank you Pam for that great reminder, when I believe it, I will see it. Imagine it first. You are right, “Imagine” is an early law of attraction song. Wow, I never looked at it that way. Brilliant! 💕
I’ve always loved the song “Imagine”. And in fact as a child there was a little song on Sesame Street that said these words “imagination: a way of seeing. Imagination: a way of being.” !! I loved it then and I can still remember it today 40 odd years later. I think it spoke to the part of me that knew this was truth. The power IS within us. Thankyou for the daily reminders 😊
They were way ahead of their time and probably still are. That song always brings tears to my eyes. Imagine! You bring the greatest examples of the lessons. One pebble at a time. Thank you.
Thank you Pam.
Thank you. Love
I feel the love! Yes, the light is here. Thank you!
Wow just watched the movie with John Lennon and Yoko.! The” So this is Christmas ” song part was hard to watch. It made me want to embrace all thosr people in war toen countries. Thank you Pam for sharing her campaign. I pray that the small love pebbles I drop along my journey help create a more loving peaceful world❤
I LOVE all of your posts, Pam, and today I’m especially grateful for reading this one. Thank you for sharing John & Yoko’s War is Over campaign <3 And, from one small pebble to the many out there… YES, War is Over, if we want it. LOVE prevails, if we want it. Infinite LOVE, Deborah Maria
