There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.
When you’re in love, when somebody says something like, ‘How can you be with that woman?’ you say, ‘What do you mean? I am with this goddess of love, the fulfillment of my whole life. Why are you saying this? Why do you want to throw a rock at her or punish me for being in love with her?’
There’s room at the top they are telling you still, but first you must learn how to smile as you kill, if you want to be like the folks on the hill.
There are places I remember, all my life though some have changed, some forever not for better, some have gone and some remain.
Imagine all the people living life in peace. 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.
You say you want a revolution, well, you know, we all want to change the world… But when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out.
You have to be a bastard to make it, and that’s a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth.
