Friday 28 August 2015

Lisa Suzanne Abbott FI
Sending love from South Carolina. Hope love, peace, kindness, and joy find you happy. How are you doing?

Thank you for sending me beautiful thoughts. You have made my weekend a bit more special, I think. yoko

Rae Ono
You have certainly seen and participated in many perfomances. What were some of your favorite concerts you have attended?

My movements come from my inner self, not from attending concerts.

Serge Burgos
Dear Mother Yoko, As I am turning 30 on Monday, what advice would you give to me on comprehending the incomprehensible?

Everything in our lives are totally comprehensible. Open your eyes to it.

Carmen Allgood
Hi Yoko! Please tell us about the light that surrounds us. Where does it come from, and what does it mean? Love to you.

Just be thankful that we are sometimes surrounded by lights. Enjoy. Don’t question.

Mari Mcnamee
Hi Yoko! Your Sky Pieces have forever changed my view of the sky. I read the connection between you and the sky started through childhood experiences. My question is, what was your initial repnonse, thought or feeling, when you first heard Jimi Hendrix sing the line “Scuse me while I kss the sky?” Now when I hear that line I imagine you.

I was in total awe of the beauty of the sky. I have been since then. Never stopped.

Albert Murrian
Why are people so afraid to say “I love you”?

Say it in your mind. They’ll get it anyway.

Yogi Higgins
Should people pay attention to political power?

All you need is to pay attention to your power, and make sure that it is used for goodness.

David Liljemark
What’s your favorite memory from the early Fluxus days?

That we were there.

Catherine Wood
What’s your bag now?

No bag.

Jeremy Ayala
I think it’s great that you do these. I’ve often wondered, what is your greatest achievement? What are you most proud of? Do you consider any of your works to be your “masterpiece”?

I just enjoy them – equally.


Mike Thomas ‏@mikethomas1959
What was your favorite song as a child?

Many songs. Some of them were those I created…

Patrick Hayne ‏@Smokey_Moose
What is your favorite colour?

All colours depending on the time of the day and the weather.

Felicia Marano ‏@cutelyobsessive
Hi Yoko! Is white really the absence of all color?

In my mind, white is a beautiful color.

Nicole ‏@nicolemk12
Yoko, how do you stay positive?

Because life is wherever positive.

DC M. ‏@BROADSIDED55
Back in ‘our day’ did you ever imagine bigotry would still exist now? I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that it does.

Everything exists. If you give a name to it as bigotry, that’s up to you.

Sommer Yesenofski ‏@yesenofski
What do you think about the use of oil industry wastewater on CA crops and agriculture?

http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-drought-oil-water-20150503-story.html
We will be taught to make our lives healthy and livable in a different way. Meanwhile, let’s do our best with what we have.

Sapna Patel ‏@sapsandthecity
What are your beauty secrets to looking so youthful. ! love you!

Thank you for your comment. Yes. I think I look pretty good. And you probably do too. We have to love ourselves as we are – as we are what we have created. To love the result of your creation. That is not vanity. That is called joy.

Cocoon Floatation ‏@cocoonfloat Ka
Did you use the floatation tank that you had in your home and if you did, what did it bring you? Thank you.

Whenever we read about a new method to expend our experiences, we just jumped on it.
But the best was just not doing anything special. It was nicer to float in the ocean.

Robert von Heeren ‏@robertvonheeren
What does the internet mean to you?

An immense amount of information you can get if you want it. And the immense communication you can create. As a New Age comes, it is a pretty good one.

Dirk ‏@pugjoke
Yoko, any advice for an amateur astronaut, hoping to turn professional?

You become professional because you receive people who wish to get your help – not because you feel you are ready to be one. If they start to come to you, be as good as you can be for them…

    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.
