Imagine a World of Peace
For those of you who haven't met or heard Joni in performance you will find this album to say all the things she stands for in her own life. Each song is like a picture worth a thousand words, as you find they paint pictures in your mind of love, joy and laughter. It is a family oriented album of songs to inspire you to think harmonious and loving thoughts which lift your spirits up to say, "Peace is Possible." The songs speak to each individual, young and old, and offer ways to rethink how we operate in our own daily lives. The songs remind us to think good thoughts, speak kind words and do things in our own personal lives that create peace and harmony. As we cultivate a vocabulary of healthy words that support ourselves and the people in our own lives, we naturally give voice to a world of peace. We must begin peace by living it in our own daily lives with the people we touch every day. When we are peaceful within ourselves we can be of help to others. It's like in parenting we have found that kids do as we do, not what they are always told to do. They follow our actions, so let us give them a set of values to respect. The way to start is to listen to these songs as you will want to be creating a space of harmony and balance in your own home. The first track sets the pattern for peace. Let us all imagine how the world can live in harmony. If we have forgotten, it's time to listen to the whole group of thirteen songs which will remind you to THINK PEACE, LIVE PEACE and BE PEACEFUL in your every day life. When families listen to these songs, they realize how they can create peace within their family, and peace in their workplace and the children in their school lives, even into the community and so on, until it is out there into the world. As Joni has said so many times, once you feel the peace in your own heart it spreads out there into the world one person at a time. Next time you are by some water, throw in a pebble and see how the impact sends out concentric circles getting bigger and bigger all the time. This is how we radiate peace in our world, one step at a time, one person at a time. And the way to start is by imagining how you can create peace in your heart and in the circle of friends you hang around with. Our world is at a perilous time where we can go one way or the other; they call it War or Peace. If we are to believe that our world has the hope for a glorious future, then we must change the image in our minds and use our powerful imaginations. We must imagine, dream, express and think our way back to the image we want our world to take. If we spend all of our time thinking war, violence, anger and fear, we will create that as our reality. Joni is a former school teacher who turned into a singing philosopher once she found her creative muse. Through her songs, she teaches people to have self-esteem and regain their sense of values in this world that has become corrupted and dark. Following a series of life changes, hallmarked by the loss of her oldest son in an accident, Joni dropped out of conventional teaching and designed her own course for going through change called BEING ME. She taught this course nationwide to young people and adults, but mostly to teenagers who had gone astray after following their peers rather than their good common sense and inner guidance. After many life changes herself, Joni finds that her love is to create and teach others to find their own talents in whatever way they are inclined to express themselves. There is a wonderful happening inside our own selves when we find a way to express our talents. Let us each find ways we can communicate effectively with the most important people in our lives. Peace will reign on earth when we all learn to live peacefully in our every day lives.
