What my One Vision looks like
Queen is a band that has that rare something that if for some reason you don’t like Queen, it says a whole lot more about you than it ever will about them. One of the most iconic bands in history that has left us a discography full of treasures for the soul as well as some kick ass Rock ‘N’ Roll.
Queens song ONE VISION is one of those soul reaching tunes that has inspired me for decades. Here’s why.
God works in mysterious ways, mysterious ways
One man, one goal,
One heart, one soul,
Just one solution.
One flash of light, yeah,
One god, one vision.
One flesh, one bone,
One true religion.
One voice, one hope,
One real decision.
Wowowowo, gimme one vision, yeah.
No wrong, no right.
I’m gonna tell you there’s no black and no white.
No blood, no stain.
All we need is one worldwide vision.
We are all connected.
From the view of this Shaman everything in existence is a face and facet of God and Goddess who are the unity of masculine and feminine essence.
I like to think of it as “one human” instead of “man.” We have limited ourselves through speech to the masculine only for far too long.
What we say and how we say it shapes our view of life the Universe and most things. Somethings we all agree on while everything else we debate endlessly.
As a Shaman I have but one religion, love.
There are no holy scriptures that could ever encompass what love is and what it means to live love and make yourself love personified. Here’s why.
If everything is a face and facet of what God is and God is love, than we are the living breathing example of love in our life.
That’s the only religion we need. Anything else is an attempt at subjugation and controlling a mass of people.
We get lost in the ideas of right and wrong, good and evil, light and dark and forget that it is unification of self not segregation that brings peace with a side of bliss that can spread through the world and change everything.
Right and wrong are just that, ideas.
We debate about the degrees of evil as if somehow it matters.
What if all we truly have is decisions and consequences?
I had a dream when I was young,
A dream of sweet illusion,
A glimpse of hope and unity,
And visions of one sweet union.
But a cold wind blows,
And a dark rain falls,
And in my heart it shows.
Look what they’ve done to my dream, yeah.
So give me your hands,
Give me your hearts.
There’s only one direction.
One world, one nation,
Yeah, one vision.
No hate, no fight,
All through the night,
It’s a celebration, wowowowo, yeah.
As children we hear stories and begin to daydream of what a world as one looks like.
As we grow the machine that is society strips that dream of what could be away from us in favor of just surviving and making a life in what is.
It’s only when we become truly interested in the sum instead of the some that we will even begin to move towards that one vision of a world at peace for the most part. There are always going to be fucktards trying to ruin it for everyone, that’s just human nature. There will always be those who feel they have the right to just take because they can.
I have always said to forget about the hate and heal the hurt.
You might be surprised the feeling that rises up from within when you focus your life on helping where you actually can. Think of the party if we all were dancing to the same tune in our hearts.
That music from within is love.
When you let love throw down the tracks and follow, it always leads right where you need to be.
It leads you right to where you personally can be of the greatest service to the sum and not just the self interest of your own life.
You may or may not be engaged in grand deeds, however the lives you touch will be forever changed.
That’s worth putting in the work to become whole and united within. It’s only in this unified projection of self that any has any hope of changing the reflection that is the rest of the world.
I have one vision of a world whose only religion is love.
It’s a dream big enough for all of us, however it’s a dream that leaves the choice to every other dreamer to make before it can happen.
Whisper if you feel me.
