“They just lived the way they wanted the world to live”
- View/Hide lyrics
In the years that lie ahead in time when we have gone our way what will future generations say of us today?
"They built their castle big and they made their buildings tall" or could our children say of us what mattered most of all:
"They knew how to serve and share and life was so free and fair
Families together, man and wife who never wanted to part.
They just lived the way they wanted the world to live
Not demanding to get what they could but only to give
And the millions flocked to their door, wanting to know, wanting to learn, wanting to buy
but it was free."
In the dream I looked ahead in time to a far off distant scene A land where all the pain and war and hunger once had been
I heard some children calling out, their eyes so bright and free: "Though we were poor, what your fathers gave restored our dignity".
Now in time we face the years ahead, What will the prospects be?
People struggling on in life, Or people who are free?
Is there but one nation that history will record gave the world a way to live that all men could afford?
And it's still free.
[Words and music by David Mills]
These are the stories of people, many ordinary, some famous, acting on convictions born of deep reflection. The beliefs and values they lived have had a profound effect on our world.
They dared to cross the threshold into new ways of thinking and living. Discovering, each one personally, that place within where we can find what is already there - God, the Divine Presence - leading to healing.
Their honest inwards journey led to a radical way of living. The inner Source was their guide to a vision of a hate-free, fear-free, greed-free world.
We invite you to explore this extraordinary record of what thousands of people found, did, and are doing, to make this world a little better than it would be without their impact.
