John Lennon's song entitled Imagine, from the title itself seems like inviting us to imagine what John Lennon think about the world. The song reflects John Lennon's consideration about how the world would be like if there are no rules, no differences and all people don't really think about their own possession.
John Lennon thought that if the world could be like what I just mentioned above, there will be no hatred and there would be only peace.

A certain group will try to dominate the other, influence the other group with their belief. And the other will protect their belief, more than that they would try to influence back the one who had tried to influence them. Conflict will be unavoidable.
Implied in the song that John Lennon wanted us to set aside our possession. As he thought possession will causes jealous feeling among the people. And jealous feeling would be like a trigger for chaos.
In the first paragraph I think that John Lennon want us to try thinking his way, like if there is no heaven and hell. Heaven and hell for me seems like the thing that devide people in two groups, good people and the bad one. Because good people of course would have good attitude only to reach the heaven which they want. So I think they do a good things also only to reach the heaven, may be they don't really want to do the good things, they just afraid if they are not accepted in heaven. Moreover the hell would only makes us fright to do bad...
