Hi John. Hello, Love. (Indicates he wants to talk about the nature of love, and with Valentine’s day coming up, it’s a timely subject.)
(Indicates my facebook post this morning about forgiveness.) (Indicates himself as a youn man.) Did you know, as a young lad, I had a reputation for being slightly moody?
I read you had a reputation for a bit more than that!
(Shows me the concept of “growing up”.) Moving through childhood to adulthood is (often / inevitably) a process of separation from love. By the time you (shows me a flower blooming, puberty) you’re nearly mad with your need for love. (Indicates “first loves” and the intensity / need of those relationships.)
As an infant, we are born with the knowledge of love. We swim in love like a fish in water. We are born without a concept of neglect, anger, loneliness.
Some people begin learning these lessons almost immediately. (Shows an orphaned infant, shows me as an infant experiencing severe pain and my mother’s helplessness to stop it. Shows most of my consciousness outside this infant’s body, in a detached, intellectual way observing the body’s pain and thinking, “Huh. What is this?”)
The separation (happens) so that we can spend the rest of our (incarnated lives returning to love, over and over again!
(wiggles eyebrows in a saucy manner, and re-emphasized “over and over again”!)
(Shows me the facebook mention of mercury in retrograde.) All of existence is orbiting, moving through darkness to light, moving through ascension and descention. This is why there is never “the end of the world” – there is only the descention, the brief moment when descention reverses, becomes ascension again. Ascension is looking at everything you created on the way down, and giving it love!
You give it love, acceptance, forgiveness. It’s all very Dali Lama, Gandhi, All-You-Need-Is-Love. (eyebrow wiggle, wink!)
I can’t believe you just cited yourself there, alongside the Dali Lama and Gandhi. You’re such a sauce pot!
Next thing I’ll be comparing myself to Jesus!
Jesus died for you, John Lennon!
You know, I had a sit down with Jesus about this whole “dying for me” thing. I said, “Brother, people are saying you died for *me*. I never asked you to die for me, brother. Why’d you do it???”
Do you know what he said?
“My mistake, will you forgive me for dying for you?”
Wow, that’s not what I expected.
See, because a lot of people don’t appreciate the guilt of the idea that Jesus died for their sins, especially when he died thousands of years before I did any of the nasty shit I did! Oh did I ever sin! Whooooo!
I was surprised that Jesus stumped me! So I had a (cigarette), thought about it and said, “Alright, I forgive you.” And do you know what I did next? I cried like a fucking baby!
Weeping still happens when you have no tear ducts. At least I can cry beautifully, if I wanted to. That Jesus thing, that was an UGLY cry, I was Grotesque! I know that’s difficult to imagine! (toothy grin.)
The thing with love, the weeping, it was this realization that we are all one. Can you believe that? I wrote how many songs with just a base understanding of the concept, and I’m still wrapping myself around it?
Trying to wrap yourself around love takes all the time in existence, you’re attempting to hold your own consciousness while glimpsing your wholeness with all that is. It’s wild! I’m not even sure Jesus can do it!
“All That Is” really is just about orbiting, moving through “dislove” or love deficit so that you can recognize love on a deeper level (shows a yoga stretch progressing – as you flex your muscles and gently move through discomfort and pain your capacity to hold the stretch increases, your strength increases.” Life is Love Yoga, ha ha ha!
So John, would this make you a Christian now?
Ah, love! Wouldn’t you like to know! (sits for a few moments, thinking.)
Ah. (Shows me a dislike of narrowing options.) I would identify as a Christian if Jesus were the only wise man in my orbit. Were I a Christian, I would primarily relate to Jesus. But then, I wouldn’t be able to annoy George by interrupting his mediations with previous incarnations of the Dali Lama, would I? I can’t leave that poor chap alone with those people, he might disappear into Nirvana!
Hey, do you think you guys might come back and be another rock band?
(laughs) Well in case you haven’t noticed, we have a couple of Beatles still alive! I wouldn’t want to knock anyone off early. That’d just piss ‘em off.
I’m not sure why I asked that, either. I guess I’m finally having a fan girl moment.
FINALLY! (fluffs his hair femininely) I was beginning to think I’d lost my touch!
Love you, John. (Blows me a kiss.)
