Watching the Wheels – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday December 8, 2010

Thought of the Day:

“He was a man, take him for all in all, I shall not look upon his like again.” ~ William Shakespeare

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years tonight since John Lennon was gunned down on a NYC street. Here was a man of peace. Here was a man who questioned the status quo. Here was a man lived according to the dictates of his heart in a way that should inspire everyone.

He was a musician and a great one, but to many in a generation he was far more than that. He was the voice and the conscience of a dialogue that continues today. Will we live in a world of peace or a world of fear and violence? Will we live in transparent societies that work for the benefit of the people or will we live in societies ruled by an elite eager to hides its secrets from the people.

“Watching the Wheels” was the third single released from his and wife Yoko Ono’s album Double Fantasy. The song was released about three months after his death and the video featured home video Lennon and his family. Here is a great song by a man who inspired many including me.

Stay inspired!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
