Weekly Photo Challenge: ONE LOVE

11/03/2016

“One Love! What about the one heart? One Heart! What about – ? Let’s get together and feel all right.” Bob Marley

Bob Marley – One Love  – Featuring Paul McCartney and a host of other celebs. (Clip Officiel)

One love refers to the universal love and respect expressed by all people for all people, regardless of race, creed, or color.—The Urban Dictionary

When I saw the theme for this week’s challenge, “One Love,” the first thing that popped into my head was Bob Marley’s song of the same title. You can check out Bob Marley’s Official Youtube Channel for more soul stirring music. We live in a world where there is constant conflict over all sorts of issues so, it’s a great reminder that if we could even try a little to practice  – one love = unity in vision – for our humanity, everything else will grow. I saw this garland of roses as I was walking back with my dearest friend, Diahann, from a visit to see the Jacqueline De Ribes: The Art Of Style exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan. It was the remnants of a Valentine’s Day celebration and I would like to believe that the recipient hung it on the gate as a way of sharing it with everyone passing by. It put a smile on my face and I stopped and took a picture of it…. one love!

UPDATE: Abeg, dis one na me dey Shakara!  Yeah, Yeah! for the Official Fela Kuti YouTube Channel. It’s about time… Anyway, I dug around my photos after I posted my first picture and discovered a few more that you’d like. In the collage above is a shot of a family of deer foraging in our backyard, a photo of our family cat lying across a laptop on a hot day, and a display of tie-dyed fabric and a picture of Bob Marley outside a store in Woodstock, NY. I’d almost forgotten about that Bob Marley shot! It would have been the best one for the post but … sometimes we digress, just like we do in life when we take another direction … Na Shakara! It’s all good. One LOVE!

“One love, one heart, let’s get together and feel alright.” Bob Marley

BOB MARLEY, ONE LOVE (extended version)

One Love/People Get Ready” by Bob Marley via azlyrics.com
One Love! One Heart!
Let’s get together and feel all right.
Hear the children cryin’ (One Love!);
Hear the children cryin’ (One Heart!),
Sayin’: give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;
Sayin’: let’s get together and feel all right. Wo wo-wo wo-wo!

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love!);
There is one question I’d really love to ask (One Heart!):
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner,
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own beliefs?

One Love! What about the one heart? One Heart!
What about – ? Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love!);
So shall it be in the end (One Heart!),
All right!
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;
Let’s get together and feel all right.
One more thing! Cont’d below

 

Enjoy the videos above and let’s all get on with making Mother Earth happy! Have a great weekend ahead. It’s all good. One love!

“One Love / People Get Ready” by Bob Marley via azlyrics.com
Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armagiddyon (One Love!),
So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (One Song!).
Have pity on those whose chances grows t’inner;
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation.

Sayin’: One Love! What about the One Heart? (One Heart!)
What about the – ? Let’s get together and feel all right.
I’m pleadin’ to mankind! (One Love!);
Oh, Lord! (One Heart) Wo-ooh!

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;
Let’s get together and feel all right.
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right;
Let’s get together and feel all right.

How Do You Practice One Love: Look, we don’t live in a perfect world but, we can try and remember to treat others fairly. Do we get mad sometimes and read folks the riot act? Sure. We all have our off days and once the dust settles, we should forgive the infractions and move on. We don’t have to fraternize with everyone but, we can respect everyone’s right to be themselves and make choices that uplift them and others. Please check out Bob Marley’s Official Youtube Channel for more music.

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post:  One Love One Love: The universe is telling me to focus on love. What is it saying to you? Show us what One Love means to you. I can’t wait to see your interpretation.

Positive Motivation Tip:  When we see others in the same light and love we have for our family and friends, we are on the way to global unity.

    Sadly I don’t think the world will ever be at peace because of all the conflict that arises on a daily basis but that doesn’t mean we as people can’t TRY to achieve that ultimate goal. Even if it’s a futile attempt and we know it’s never going to happen, we still need to go forth and love, be kind, and treat each other with respect because that’s what humanity needs; as long as people are still doing that, there’s always hope 🙂

      We sure need to keep up the effort in every way we can … if each one reaches out to another, we can cover a huge landscape of love and consideration, with time out to still vent. 🙂

    My ex-husband is a reggae musician and that is one of my favorite Marley songs. All of his songs are great, though with a deep message about acceptance.

    Actually, the first song that popped into my head was One Love by Blue. sorry, I wasn’t quite familiar with bob Marley’s song. But then again, at least now I know how legendary Bob marley truly was. I believe this one was used by a lot of people to promote unity and equality.
