Emily Lindsay - The Mind's Eye



The Mind's Eye

I love this bird
I'm not sure why
To watch it live
To see it fly
Feather, thistle, hill and scrawl
It warms my mind
To see it all
Drawn from a wildly fertile mind
By tender hands upon a wall
True creation
Hear the call

I watched Pleasantville again today and enjoyed the depiction of a colorless world being transformed to vivid color. A wonderful movie to watch and to listen once more to another wonderful Lennon/McCartney lyric.


Across The Universe
(Lennon and McCartney)

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world.
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
That call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world.
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing
Through my open ears inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
million suns, it calls me on and on
Across the universe
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world.
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Jai guru de va, jai guru de va
Jai guru de va, jai guru de va
Jai guru de va.
I looked for the meaning of "Jai guru de va" and came up with this explaination.

"The line "jai guru deva om" is a mantra of John's designed to help him concentrate while meditating, something he was into at the time. It means roughly "Glory to the spiritual master" and has the focusing sound "omm" at the end. (Translation varies according to particular level of Sanskrit used for divination.)"
