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!
