 "Total communication equals peace." Yoko Ono, 1971. #peace #shine #tower #light @yokoonoofficial @johnlennonofficial  “Once we change our heads, we will see that world peace will reign on us without us even lifting our fingers.” Yoko Ono, 2014. From UNCOVER by Yoko Ono on imaginepeace.com #light #peace #tower #yokoono #johnlennon @yokoonoofficial @johnlennonofficial  IMAGINE PEACE TOWER, 3am 8/8/14. Last night, Yoko Ono Lennon requested IMAGINE PEACE TOWER be lit in remembrance of the children who have lost their lives in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, hoping that the ceasefire will continue indefinitely, and no more innocent children will be harmed. IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an artwork by Yoko Ono dedicated to John Lennon. It consists of 15 searchlights with prisms that act as mirrors, reflecting the column of light vertically into the sky from a 10-metre wide wishing well. It often reaches cloudbase and indeed can be seen penetrating the cloud cover. On a clear night it appears to reach an altitude of at least 4km. The power for the lights is provided by Iceland's unique geo-thermal energy grid. It uses approximately 75 kW of power.

 "I think everybody's an artist and everybody's a poet." John Lennon, 1969. #peace #tower #shine @yokoonoofficial @johnlennonofficial  The thing is, we have this poster that says WAR IS OVER! (If You Want It). The war is here now and there's two ways of looking at it. Some people say, "Why did you spend your money on posters or peace campaigns? Why didn't you give it to the Biafran children, or something like that?" And we say, "We're trying to prevent cancer, not cure it." John Lennon, 1970 #WARISOVER #peace #Instagood #JohnLennon #YokoOno  This world is separated into two industries: one being the war industry and the other being the peace industry. People who are in the war industry are totally unified by their ideas. They want to make war, kill, and make money. There is no argument there. They just get on with their objectives. Therefore, in that sense, they are a tremendously powerful force. But the people in the peace industry are like me: they are idealists and perfectionists. So they cannot agree with each other. They're always arguing in the pursuit of the "perfect idea." They are asking themselves and each other "What is the best way to get peace? Of course, it's MY way. What's wrong with YOUR way is that..." But instead of doing that, if we can only try to accept each other, forgive the differences and appreciate each other...because the fact is that all of us are in the peace industry. We should bless each other for that, and through that togetherness, somehow, we may be able to make the peace industry just as viable as the war industry, or more. Only then will we be able to stop the wars and bring peace to the world. The fact that the war industry is flourishing is because it's more profitable. It's more economically and financially profitable for some people to make war. It's as simple as that. Instead of arguing, we should embrace each other and come together.

 “Look into people’s eyes. They are your eyes. They are beautiful. They are smiling.” Yoko Ono, August 6th 2013. From 'On Hiroshima Day' at: http://imaginepeace.com/archives/19723 #smile #shine #tower #light @yokoonoofficial @johnlennonofficial  Hold on world World hold on It's gonna be alright You're gonna see the light And when you're one Really one Well you get things done Like they've never been done So hold on Search for 'Hold On' by John Lennon on @Spotify, @Rdio, @Deezer & @BeatsMusic. #lyrics #johnlennon #instamusic #light #tower #iceland #instagood #beautiful #music #instalove  The contemporary society is competitive, logical (inasmuch as the society makes an attempt or pretense of basing its thinking on logic) and power-oriented in its structure. Hypocrisy, violence and chaos result from this structure. We can now change the society with the feminine touch, or rather with feminine intelligence and awareness, into a basically organic, non-competitive one based on love rather than reasoning. The result will be balance, peace and contentment.

Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear. #JohnLennon & #YokoOno, 1971

Now I think that the concept of world peace is a normal one, and likewise, art too. In the old days when we were artists, we felt pretty special, but now I think most people are participating in some kind of artistic activity and that's very good. That's how our society's changing in a way. Even with guitars. When the bands were playing in the 60's, there were very few people who played guitars, and now most children in schools know how to play guitars, so it's a very different society now. #YokoOno, 2001
 “Have fun – smile with your whole body – and dance!” Yoko Ono, NEW YEAR’S AFFIRMATION 2008 imaginepeace.com/home/faq #smile #shine #tower #light @johnlennonofficial @yokoonoofficial  "All we are saying is give peace a chance" @JohnLennon #HappyBirthdayJohnLennon  Imagine all the people living life in peace. I think that that's a very strong thing to do. It might be a very controversial thing to do. Because it's a very powerful thing to do. But I think it's all right to say that. I don't think that goes against the policy of this country or anything like that. I think, in the end, all people in this country really want peace. But how to get there, some people are thinking in a different way of course. But imagining, that's something that we can all do, even when we have different opinions about how to get there. Imagining peace, imagining peace. That's okay. That we can all do without feeling the conflict. Yoko Ono, 2001 @yokoonoofficial #imagine #peace #johnlennon #light #iceland #imaginepeacetower #fridarsulan #love #amazing #look #instalike #igers #picoftheday #photooftheday #instadaily #instafollow #like #instagood #bestoftheday #instacool #clouds #northernlights #follow #stars #night #cool #awesome #photo  I believe that as soon as people want peace in the world they can have it. The only trouble is they are not aware they can get it. #JohnLennon, 1969
