“When I count what’s wrong with my life, I get totally depressed. When I count the good things, I feel like smiling and I do. Then I think, “well, it’s not all that bad.” Life is just a bowl of cherries. But when I see myself smiling in the mirror, I like myself more. Well, life is a roller-coaster. That’s what I now think. Recently, I got a message that I was a king, and I should stop the battle, and appreciate my victory. Well, I should listen to this one. And you, too, my friend. We are all kings. The battle is the battle of goodness winning WORLD PEACE. At all times, find something that makes you laugh. Laughter is the best workout! Chimpanzees are wise to it. Are you?”
100 Acorns: Yoko Ono: The Tate Gallery Lecture (2004) – excerpt
The Tate Gallery Lecture presents the definition of enlightenment.
Yoko is famous for her conceptual art. It is a tool she used as a child to spiritually transcend the nuclear attack on Japan. One of her most famous conceptual art ideas is the Peace Tower. At the time she imagined the Peace Tower, the technical knowledge did not exist to make it happen. Forty years and several conflicts later, it has become a reality.
