Yoko, in light of “Imagine” being played for the International day of Peace, do you think John would be pleased than his song has become so widely regarded as the National Peace Anthem? Do you think he would be proud?

He is. And also, he is glad for the human race for understanding it.

Maureen Ballentine Murphy
When is the next time something significant will be happening at the Peace Tower in Iceland? I’ve always wanted to visit…maybe a special anniversary?

It is happening this October 9th 2014. Come and see. yoko

Mark Scott
Well, the Iraq war part 3 has just been declared!..War is over if u want it. Well, governments obviously don’t want it…?

We just have to hold our un-negative view of the world, and stay still about it in our minds.

Jeff Boswell
How did you plan/outline the vocal on “Why”? Did you have to do multiple takes to get it right?

Just one take. Did not go over any notes, any syllables. That’s me raw.

Flor de Mambar
Hello, Yoko! Did you know that actor Mark Hamill (who played Luke Skywalker in Star Wars) is a great fan of John? It is maybe an irrelevant question but I wonder if you and John watched and liked “Star Wars” when it was originally released in 1977? Thanks for reading, anyway! You’re kind.

We both loved it.

Brittany Bowman
Yoko, As a 20 year old who strives hard to do the right thing and make the world a better place, it can sometimes be hard knowing how to do so and often wonder how someone like me, so small in this world, can make a difference. Do you have any advice for someone my age who might feel lost or what I can do to stay on the right track? Thanks x

You can keep yourself on the right track. Nobody else can. You are not small, you are not young. The very fact that you are asking that question means you are wise and ready to do the right thing and will. yoko

Bernd Phoenix
My 33 year old son Daniel was taken from me last month in an accident in Germany. He was such a positive and happy man – I am still devastated by this and there is no end in sight! How can one really deal with such a loss?? Peace

He has done what he can do on Earth, and now he wants to help you, us and the planet by being in a free zone. He is looking over all of us, especially you. Tell him. please, that we are thankful to him. yoko

Amythest Bell
Hello Yoko, I really admire your art and strength. I’m going to be studying abroad in England for a year starting in August, 2015. I still live with my parents and two brothers. Do you have any advice for someone starting to live independently from their family?

You will be surprised that you are not so independent from them. And that’s fine. Just physically you are sleeping in a bedroom a bit further from them than you were used to. They are looking over you day and night. And will come to you in your dream, even if you never notice it.

Lisa Masiero
Hi yoko….as the seasons change, do find yourself changing a little too? I know that fall makes me energetic, winter keeps me in a cozy feeling, spring brings new hope and anticipation, summer gets me into relaxing mode.

Fall is when my mind becomes sharper. Winter is when it becomes easier to be further introspective. Spring is when I become totally aware of my love for everything in life. Summer is when I notice my daring energy, and use it. All seasons, as you say, are beautiful, but different for each one of us.

Hello Yoko, how are you? Sending peace & love always.

Thank you Liliana, Pesace to you, too.

Albert Murrian ‏@AlbertBMurrian
I support the @HeforShe movement. What do you think is the biggest misconception that men have about feminists?

That feminists are just very small group of women. We are not. We are all women.

Liliana ‏@LennonPeaceGirl
How can I prove to my family and friends that we can achieve peace? Especially if they disagree

They will keep disagreeing you until they start to get interested in what you are doing. Be patient and silent. Don’t preach or be a feminist to prove something to them. What you are will eventually get to their souls.

ETERNAL LIPS ‏@EternalLips
Do you consider yourself a conduit of music? Where is the music coming from? Love is Real, Eternal Lips

I am always grateful that music comes to me.

Malena Psicodelia ‏@Malena_Roz
Do you have any favourite kind of Japanese poetry?

Haiku is a good one. But all words are beautiful. Formats less.

Some Guy ‏@MornLess
Was there ever a time you felt self conscious about expressing yourself creatively?

No. it is like breathing. If I stop it consciously, I will get a headache.

Patsy Strong ‏@patsystrong
Where did John go to get away from it all when he needed rest and solitude? What was his favorite place?

Inside him.

gary laugel ‏@cosmogeny
How much of happiness is a choice?

Happiness is what you feel and create or what you create and feel..

Kristine / 33 ‏@beatlesforpeace
What did you want to do with your life when you were younger? At 15? At 20?

I wanted to be a writer and a composer.

Barbara Parker ‏@bparkerhouse
How can we all contribute to getting to Peace in our lifetime?

We are getting there! If you are peaceful, you will see how peaceful the world is already.
If you are not peaceful, you will not see peace.

    Joseph Martin john is a light that will never go out for all you need is love will continue to feed this light
    he was a poet, songwriter, composer, a father, a champion for peace but most of all he was just a man. unlike paul m. he could feel and write a…bout pain and longing and reach the depths of dispair and somehow it was beautiful Help i need somebody, so i sing a song of love for julia, mother you had me but i never had you, women you understand the little child inside a man, i was dreaming in the past and my heart was beating fast, if you want money for people with minds that hate all i can tell you brother you’ll have to wait, war is over if you want it, no need for greed or hungar a brotherhood of man,but most of all IN MY LIFE I LOVE YOU MORE
    happy birthday john you are loved and i and millions more will miss you

  5. Felipe says:

    Yoko, your message is beautiful and we still believe in Peace.

    Here in South America we fight everyday for our beliefs, our ideals, our peace motives and for the beauty of life.

    Sometimes is very hard to swim against the currents, against over consumption, against the media, against the powerful and their money.

    But when i saw you and your willpower to keep screaming for peace and love for everyone, i feel alive now and i’ll keep yelling and working to build a better world for us all.

    Thank you Yoko. Mata ne!

    Felipe Nadeau.

    • Yoko Ono says:

      Hi Jen! It’s nice that you participated in the scream piece and screamed. Your scream joined all the other screams of that piece performed in MOMA, and is sending out a strong vibration and making a strong statement to the world. love, yoko

    HI Yoko,

    I am doing a write up on Cut Piece. I was wondering what is a message or representation you were trying to say with this piece?

    Thanks,

    Kallie

  12. Sonia says:

    Thank you for the answers that you shared to me especially about questions related when you were expecting a baby with John.. One of my favorites is you are craving meat and cabbage and about morning sickness.. hope if you don’t mind I could post some questions that was bugging in my head. it is all about Sean when he was not yet born (I mean inside your womb)… again thank you…
