“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.”
