It’s Gonna Take a Lotta Love!

It's Gonna Take a Lotta LoveWaiting On The World To Change

 Me and all my friends

We’re all misunderstood

They say we stand for nothing and

There’s no way we ever could


Now we see everything that’s going wrong

With the world and those who lead it

We just feel like we don’t have the means

To rise above and beat it


So we keep waiting

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting

Waiting on the world to change


I love John Mayer’s song Waiting on the World to Change and, truth is, we can’t.  We can’t wait, and the Earth can’t wait and the children can’t wait.  Truth is that whatever we think, say and do right now really matters, and it seems to me from my heart of longing for the world to change, that Neil Young’s It’s Gonna Take a Lot of Love to Change the Way the Things Are, is what’s true.  Trusting that Neil Young will forgive me, I have taken the liberty to change a few words.

 It’s gonna take a lotta love

To change the way things are.

It’s gonna take a lotta love

Or we won’t get too far.


So if you look in my direction

And we don’t see eye to eye,

The Earth needs our protection

Land, sea and sky.


It’s gonna take a lotta love

To get us thru the night.

It’s gonna take a lotta love

To make things work out right.


So if you are out there waitin’

I hope you show up soon,

The Earth needs restoration

Of great magnitude

 There is no time to wait.

Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

Albert Einstein

In fact, history shows that we have continuously broadened our scope, first to include women, blacks, other minorities in the United States, the disabled, gays, transgenders and now it is time, the wise ones share to broaden our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and nature.  We now open to love life.  One day I was walking on the beach and there were large beautiful block letters in lava that said LOVE LIFE, and it stopped my world and I felt the truth in it in my body.  That is the solution to every problem.  And, there is great hope in that…

Love is all we need.
