Imagine: The “Dharma” of John Lennon

As we all know, John Lennon would have been 70 today had he not been taken away early. In celebration of his birthday, and in recognition to him as a musician and peace activist, I am posting the lyrics and video to “Imagine”.

I had intended to break down the lyrics, and relate them to certain “Dharmic” qualities, but after re-reading them (for the millionth time in this life) I realized I didn’t need to break them down at all. John wrote the song perfectly, and the words speak for themselves.

The thing I will say is, with each lyrical paragraph, note there is always a middle way. “Imagine” we could all truly live in John’s world, I believe would all be at least a little bit better off!
