Simple and uplifting thoughts from me to you

*The following was taken from my facebook page...
Simple and uplifting thoughts from me to you on this book of faces where anger, hatred, political/religious opinionated soapbox rants do rage on:
If someone discourages, belittles and hurts you in life, leave them behind while you move forward.
If you don't like, support and/or approve of someone's posts and views on your friend's list, unfollow/delete/block them (even if it's me).
If you don't know the entire story/details behind your "views and/or beliefs", be careful of putting a label on yourself (you may be asked to defend/explain yourself and not be able to). I put a label on myself for too many years. It feels way better to be free and simply human (if I don't KNOW, I'm perfectly happy with confessing that which I do not KNOW).
If you don't like a radio station, turn it.
If you don't like a specific grocery store, don't shop there.
If you don't approve of someone's lifestyle choices... Easy... Don't hang out with them- but please, also don't lash out at them (don't be an asshole sums a lot of this up).
If you have hate and anger in your heart already, you will naturally lace it with whatever political, religious and/or corporate brainwashing you've been led by others in your lifetime to believe... And I am truly sorry for that because before any of that there was... Humanity.
Focus on what we all have in common (and there is SO much!).
I leave you with these thoughts AND the lyrics to two songs that could have and still could change the world... "Imagine and Let It Be".
Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today... Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too 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 Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world... 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 live as one***
**When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be And in my hour of darkness She is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. Whisper words of wisdom, let it be. And when the broken hearted people Living in the world agree, There will be an answer, let it be. For though they may be parted there is Still a chance that they will see There will be an answer, let it be.Let it be, let it be. Yeah There will be an answer, let it be. And when the night is cloudy,There is still a light that shines on me, Shine on until tomorrow, let it be. I wake up to the sound of music Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be. There will be an answer, let it be. Let it be, let it be, Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
