When one looks at the body of work of John Lennon, you can see his cleverness in his use of words to convey a story or messages and the depth of knowledge in subjects.
This is no more evident in his song Mind Games, for his understanding of consciousness and the Imaginal realm is plain to see in the lyrics of the song.
Mind Games – John Lennon
The beginning of the song begins with:
“We’re playing those mind games together, pushing the barrier, planting seeds”
And John Lennon understood what was the true driving force for creating a better world.
“Love is the flower, you’ve gotta let it, gotta let it grow”
And when one begins to understand the imagination and the imaginal realm, the following two lines from Mind Games makes perfect sense.
“Faith in the future out of the now”
“Projecting our images in space and time”
And when you start adding songs in such as Instant Karma and Watching The Wheels into the mix, John Lennon creates a bigger picture for all to see.
Watching The Wheels
There are many, many artists out there who have done exactly the same things, and once one develops the eyes to see and the ears to hear, it can become as plain as day to see.
Uprising – Muse
When you listen to such songs as Watching The wheels and Mind Games, the cleverness of John Lennon becomes easy to see
