“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

— John Lennon

Yoko Ono has created the *Peace Tower* to honor John Lennon.

On her website, you will also find her downloadable billboards.

The free download of Yoko’s Times Square New York City billboard of the famous phrase *Imagine Peace* in 24 languages is available in several sizes–HERE.

Yoko Ono has also been creating Wish Trees.

When I visited a temple in Tokyo with a Japanese friend, he showed me long strips of paper printed with wishes, that visitors tied to trees or bushes— a common practice at temples in Japan.

Yoko Ono has made her Wish Tree project instructions available for download here.
