Imagine by John Lennon



Imagine there's no heaven

it's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky


Imagine all the people

living for today...


Imagine there's no countries

it isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

and no religion too


Imagine all the people

Living life in peace...


You may say I'm a dreamer

but I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

and the world will be as one...


Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man


Imagine all the people

sharing all the world...


You may say I'm a dreamer

but I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

and the world will live as one.


Just a note

Some of you might have found my website via a related search -- like you put Spiritual Humanism in google and found me.

I just wanted to make sure that I give credit where credit is due.

I am not the original Spiritual Humansist- R.A. Zorger, the president of the church is the brain behind the movement.

The simple fact is we Humanists have existed in many forms for all of history- and in it's many incarnations the reality has been:

Humans believing in Humanity and trusting in themselves and each other.

There are many other Spiritual Humanists and SH officiants- I encourage each of you to explore the vast world that we inhabit.


Sending the very best hopes that the Karma you develop is good Karma.
