Imagine What We Could Accomplish


Imagine if we all loved and respected each other

I went through my drafts looking for an appropriate one-liner for this morning after the debate. I wanted something scathing. I still feel like ranting.Β  I want to release the toxicity that lingers even though I couldn’t even bear to watch the whole debate.

What I found instead was this positive meme a friend sent me on Facebook over a year ago with a message that wants to be seen and heard.

In my draft, I referred to a related post by Sue Dreamwalker about logic and following the heart. I don’t remember the details, but I trust it is important and relevant.

The logical mind might think, it’s not likely that seven billion humans would all love and respect each other, and long enough to accomplish what we might imagine.

But the heart says, imagine anyway. The higher self says, what if we all really did love and respect each other as living beings? What if we could at least speak to each other with respect?

What a wonderful world to imagine.

And while we’re at it, lets imagine that we also love and respect ourselves.

No more wars. Everyone would have enough food. We would have peace and take care of the planet because there are enough of us who care deeply.

I invite you to take a few moments and imagine and share your best vision. How might it come into being?

  1. I try so hard to imagine it. For my children, my grandchildren and for everyone. If I could not imagine a better world, I would be giving up.

  2. This is positively inspirational and just what I needed to read this morning. πŸ’›

  3. A lovely post JoAnna. I also love Sue Dreamwalkers’ insightful posts and poems.

  4. I do believe that we humans need to hold onto a vision of a better world. If not, we would descend into permanent chaos. Let love and respect begin with me ❀

  5. JoAnna, I posted a similar theme today. Peace will come into being if we individually do our part to love, respect and accept others. There are days, though, that I wish Jesus would show up and remind all Christians of what their role is in this world and what it truly means to follow him.

    • It’s a good wish, Mary. On my own, I’m not at all consistent with loving, respecting, and accepting others. I’m asking Jesus right now to help me feel his love and show that love to others. Thanks for this nudge. ❀

  6. I think you may well be referring to THE debate of name calling on both sides last evening, It also reached its much cut and edited highlights here in the UK…
    Thank you for referring my post JoAnna ” Diving Deeper Into My World” Which I wrote back in 2018.
    Where I said.
    ” But before the new ways of thinking can be embraced, the old that so many cling onto have to crumble and fall away, allowing room for new growth to take its place… The systems we have been following are now outgrowing their usefulness.. And we have to begin to think and see the world from a new perspective. One that stops us from competing with one another into one that allows us to cooperate and share the resources we have, as we embrace the idea we are not separate. This is going to be a huge shift and one that will shake us into that cooperation if we are not listening to Mother Nature right now.”

    I think most will agree we have been ‘Shaken to our core’ though I still know much more shaking is due to surface.. Some it will not be believable… But it all has to come out…

    You know JoAnna… I used to detest the ‘Orange’ man, I couldn’t stand the man, until last year, and I really sat down and thought why was I so detesting of someone I had never met, do not know, only that which we have seen portrayed through the lens of others.. So I started doing my own research ,, I began looking into his executive orders.. I also noted he was the only president who donated his entire salary to various causes every month/year… He was also the only president in recent times NOT to go to war… He is the only president to bring troops home, and who was really looking after veterans And who, has pulled together countries in the Middle East to Sign peace deals which is HUGE…. And if any one else had achieved this, it would have been Mega news… Yet the media continual drag him down…. And that is because he said right at the beginning of his term… He was draining the
    swamp…. And in my researching, Deep Diving…. I see who is in that swamp, what they are doing, and why most of the media is bought and ruled… There are still many flaws within the Orange man I do not particularly like…. Quite a few…. But then I look in my own mirror and I know I too still have many flaws I need to iron out.. I am not perfect and who among us can cast those stones…
    This is why I have often said about Judgement within my posts… Because we all of us are here to accomplish something… Be it those beings who are negative who are creating mayhem so others will have the courage to stand up and make those changes, as they see which way this world is heading.. Or to those whose courage is to stand taking the flack…

    This is the starting point…. Where we make our stand…. Where Change is needed and while we are in the thick of it.. Its ugly and nasty, because all the purging, all of those dark shadows beneath the surface ruled by corruption and lies now has to surface to be cleared and purged out….
    Our love and ‘Imaginings’ of a future world, no wars, peace, and unity, harmony, no lack, no starvation. no homelessness, no cruelty is still along way off… But WE dear JoAnna as you rightly say… WE need to imagine it into being…. because everything we experience in the now, is the result of past thinking…
    So we need our New thinking to manifest such a world…. Its gradual, step by step…. These are the first steps of those crumbling pyramids of power…
    The battle of Consciousness is well under way….. Fear being the main one to keep us in control….

    So dearest friend…. My own imaginings are that all of those corrupt and evil beings need exposing to the light… and when we see for ourselves, the atrocities on innocents, we will then begin to rebuild… But we first have to expose it to the light of day….
    Just as I had to dive deep into my own shadows, before I could move into the love of self….

    A wonderful post dear friend… And please feel free to delete or edit my comment if not felt appropriate dear JoAnna….. Sending HUGE hugs your way…
    MUCH LOVE sent πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

    • Thank you for your enlightening perspective, dear Sue. You have brought up some interesting points from your research on the orange man and you remind me that no one is all good or all bad. What has bothered me most about the man who is currently the president of my country is his bullying meanness. Maybe underneath my disgust is fear. Maybe underneath his meanness is fear, too, or some kind of pain. Makes me wonder what we might have in common, if only for a moment. Still, the orange man scares me more than any other president ever has. It’s so considerate of you to offer editing or deleting of your comment. I am glad that I don’t feel the need to do that. Sending much love, hugs, and gratitude. ❀

      • Many thanks dear JoAnna, for not taking offence at my opinions given… All too often in todays world I am afraid a differing opinion is seen as being against, so dividing further our freedom of thought and speech.. So thank you ❀
        Living in the England, I guess I am far from being qualified as to know first hand Mr Orange mans meanness as I have not experienced it directly.. I guess you must have to hold such a strong opinion… We have our own Tyrants here within our own political systems and that again is but an observation and I truly cannot say what intentions our so called leaders truly hold close to their hearts… Only they and God know that..
        I think perhaps he may scare people more in that he is the only one who has not been controllable.. He comes from a business background and so does and says things differently.. It is a thankless job, one I would not like,… And certainly not given the hatred levelled at him through the media.. Despite all that has been thrown his way including attempts on his life which the msm do not speak of.. He still goes out among thousands of people which must take a tremendous amount of courage.
        I am very grateful dear JoAnna for our friendship and for our truthful exchange of thoughts and respect we have for each other… I believe strongly the 'world' needs a strong President… And if I had to choose between the two he is the one to lead his country and the world to more peaceful solutions than the weakness of one who I see would only be manipulated by those who have been running the show behind the scenes in ALL countries.. especially here in the UK which is also within its own shadow control…
        Bless you JoAnna…. If there is one thing I truly know as being true.. ALL things Happen for a Reason… And when all things shall come to pass.. We will look back and see Why? this happened.. and Why that happened….
        Its A step by step opening of our awareness.. and Mr T is as I have been shown is here to play his major part in tackling that swamp he spoke about when elected… Its like playing a huge chess game… we have been the pawns, setting up the pieces for their strategic moves yet to come..
        So thank you dearest JoAnna…. for being open to listening to a Dreamer… πŸ™‚ … The Game is ticking as we will see these next pieces of fear being played out in a game already won on the higher planes… But I see more fear from these hidden players about to be thrown, to try to knock the Orange piece off the board…
        We are also important pieces… As we hold the love and light frequencies…. So never give up our faith in that we hold important rolls within our hearts and our thoughts…
        What we Can Accomplish…. by our thoughts alone is remarkable… May we each of us Send love over our fears, envisioning beauty, unity, harmony, and peace …. Sending you so, so much love JoAnna…. Stay strong… stay positive… that all is as it should be… as we purge out the old world, to rebuild a new one…
        Love and Blessings… πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

        • Thank you for your honesty, Sue. I can see that the current US president is not 100% bad. My belief that he is mean, dangerous, and a bully, is based on things I have heard him say and seen him do, like mocking a handicapped person, frequent name calling, the demeaning things I’ve heard him say about women, and statements that I believe are divisive and racist among other things. I also do not like that he has weakened or eliminated many protections for Mother Earth. But I know there is good in everyone, and I’m glad you can see it in him. Sending peace, love, and blessings, always. ❀

          • I agree there is goodness in everyone’s hearts. And I too have many faults. None of us are perfect. It’s all how we perceive what we see. You are in a better position if seeing your president than I.
            Let’s hope for all our sakes God’s plan for humanity is in place.
            Much love dear friend. And thanking you for our honest exchange of thoughts. I wish more could do the same in friendship
            and love and not hatred causing division, because we share differing opinions.
            Stay blessed, much love to you and your family JoAnna. πŸ™β€οΈπŸ™πŸ’–

  7. Yes, it’s a difficult time to dredge up a drop of positivity, JoAnna. Thank you for posting this. Hugs on the wing.

  8. Just imagine – it would be amazing.

  9. ❀ for this post and all the comments, JoAnna. I applaud Sue's 'deep dive' and research. Understanding is key. My thoughts align with Derrick. Yes. Let it begin with me… ❀

  10. Thank you for sharing!!.. here on the path we follow the advice of Roy Bennett; β€œDon’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett) and we follow our heart…. πŸ™‚

    Until we meet again..

    May love and laughter light your days,

    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

  11. I think and believe it’s possible. The oneself harder, others easier. So many good people everywhere!

    • Thank you for believing with me! Loving oneself gets easier with practice. Finding balance can still be hard sometimes. Yes, there are many good people everywhere!

  12. JoAnna, as a individuals, we have some control over what we think and do. We may be able to persuade some others to our point of view. Like-minded individuals working together can bring about change. I believe that is all we have. So much is beyond our control and so uncertain, but giving up will accomplish nothing.. Thank you for making your voice heard. ❀ Cheryl
