A lot of people like to trash John Lennon’s memory by claiming he was a hypocrite, because he espoused certain spiritual values and yet had the nerve to struggle with his very human flaws.
I don’t know any perfect people. Do you?
Anyway, I just heard one of my favorite songs of his, the Beatles-era Across The Universe, and I certainly wish more people saw the world the way he did:
Sounds of laughter, shades of earth
Are ringing through my open views
Inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love
Which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on, across the universe
