Define a beautiful world – as you see it!
By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC
We are all dreamers creating the next world,
the next beautiful world for ourselves and for our children.
~ Yoko Ono
What is a beautiful world to you? What is the beauty of the dream? One world where we all live in peace, live and let live, respect each other and our right to choose. We all have to share this world and we need to take care of it for ourselves and our children. Here we are in the year 2015 – 25 years after this charity concert (see below) and we still need to be vigilant, conscious and concerned about caring for our world. Our world inside our bodies and our world called the planet. What we choose to eat, where we purchase our foods, how we deal with our trash are all issues that affect our environment, internally and externally. These are choices that we individually and collectively need to consider on a daily basis.
An Evening with Friends of the Environment
A Beautiful World
Meryl Streep raised awareness on pesticides and formed the group “Mothers and Others”. She took the opportunity to speak at a charity concert for the aid protecting the environment. “An Evening with Friends of the Environment” featured celebrity mothers Olivia Newton-John, Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, Cher, Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin and Robin Williams (“the other in mother and others”). The event was filmed before a live audience, the celebrity cast sang What a Wonderful World at the concert’s finale.

“My friends and I are so very, very happy that you came here tonight to be with us on this warm, beautiful evening – in Los Angeles, in 1990. We’ve been sitting here tonight, perched on the edge of a mountain, on the rim of a continent, at the beginning of a new century. In ten years it will be the year 2000. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but… how come ten years ago seems like twenty minutes – and the year 2000 seems like about thousand miles away. I was thinking about where I was ten years ago. Ten years ago I just had my first baby, and just had my first hit movie “Kramer vs. Kramer”. And I remember every Thursday I would put all the garbage and all the food and the cans and the bottles and the papers and everything, in one big plastic bag and I take it down to the street and it would just go away. I don’t know where. I think to New Jersey? That was back in the old days when they had landfills. But after Thursday I don’t know where they took it. I really didn’t think it was my problem, not like I do now.
What is a beautiful world to you?
A beautiful world to me is one where everyone recognizes that we are more alike than we are different and that we are all connected. This includes not just humans, but animals, insects, fish, plants, oceans, etc…
Each day I ask myself “what can I do to participate in the health and development of my environment”?
