Love is all you need, A Lifetime in Reflection
So it has finally hit me…I am getting old. So how old? So what do you think? With this revelation It has caused me to think a bit about life and remember a lifetime. I have experienced so much in my years. I have traveled to a whole lot of countries and I have meet some great people. I almost died a few times and I like most of us have regrets. One of the good things about my life is the women I married. I married up. We have been married over 40 years now and I hope we have another 40. She has taught me so much about love, acceptance and forgiveness. I am a fortunate man.
I watched the day a man stepped on the moon, I have laughed my self silly watching John Candy and I took the magical mystery tour with the Beatles. So many of my heros died., Elvis, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, John Lennon to name a few.
We now live in a generation where technology is opening so many new doors to us. The computer has made the world very small. We are becoming a one world nation in so many ways. However with this advancement we have not been able to advance the human soul. People are still killing people. Disease is still rampant, children are dying right now by the thousands for something as simple as not having water.
What is it going to take for humans to advance in the most important area of all. How do we get to a place where we stop doing ourselves in . We eat to much, we are self serving and far to often we just don’t give a damn about the poverty and hunger that is all around us.
The Beatles lyrics said it in song written by John Lennon, “All we are saying is give peace a chance.” The other song title said, “Love, Love is all you need.” So why, why have we seen so many advancements in so many areas but we are lacking in the most important of all….how do we simply get along in the most basic of areas ….relationships…
So what do you think?
