IMAGINE PEACE TOWER
Unveiling Speech by Yoko Ono

All spirits of goodness of this magical land, of the planet, and of the universe,
thank you, thank you, thank you, for witnessing our humble gathering
for the unveiling of IMAGINE PEACE TOWER.

They say that if all the people in China were to jump up and down at the same time,
the axis of the globe would shift.

Well, we are here together.
Billions of us.

Standing at the dawn of a new age determined to shift the axis of the world to health,
peace and joy by loving and caring for all lives on Earth.

Some of us are here physically, some are joining us in spirit.
Some of us are imprisoned, tortured, maimed and silenced, but they are also here today with us.
Some of us have passed away before being able to enjoy a new age of love and peace.
But we are all here today standing together with hope.

The light is the light of wisdom, healing and empowerment.
Even in the moments of confusion, fear and the darkness of your souls, hold the light
in your hearts, and you will know that you are not alone, that we are all together in
seeing the light of peace.

I thank the people of Iceland, for having given so much love to this tower from its inception.
IMAGINE PEACE TOWER was visualized with love, and realized by love.
It is a gift from John and Yoko and the people of Iceland to the world.

I know that John is with us, too, in this land of Nutopia,
happy that the light tower is finally a reality after 40 years.

Let’s make a wish as the light goes on.

Let’s send light to each other and say I love you!

John, we love you!

BIRTHDAY THOUGHTS 2007

We stand on this beautiful planet enjoying
the sunrise, the sunset, the change of seasons
the oceans, the mountains, the clear sky
and the lovely towns and cities we’ve created together

We cherish the moment of peace and quiet
We cherish the moment of having fun
We cherish every moment of warmth and love
We laugh, we heal, and we embrace

With what we’ve learnt and experienced
With our wisdom and the sense of unity
We protect our world from destruction
For our hearts beat in unison
Even when we fight with one another

We breathe for life
We’ll survive
Remember: we are one

A big hug and kiss to each one of you
I feel privileged to share this time with you
Thank you for being in my life
at times as teachers, as angels, as friends
always as blessings, always with love
Without you, I would not be

Today is the beginning of our joyful lives
Let’s dance together in our hearts
and play the game of life
In love

We breathe for life
We will survive
Remember:
We are Love

Please make sure you join us in spirit
on the day of the unveiling of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER.
All you have to do is visit www.IMAGINEPEACE.com
and send your wishes which will go directly to Reykjavík.
We will all be together on that day.

They say that if people in China all jumped at the same time,
the axis of the globe will be shifted.
Well, we are shifting the axis of the world to peace by our unity.

I love you!

every time I hear about you, but I’m glad to know that for me and the rest of the people remain with you and will continue as long as you too were his idol and mine.
I love you
