Everything man has accomplished, he has first imagined.
I imagine a day when the global family of man learn they can live together in peace. I have always dreamed and imagined this.
Growing up during the Kennedy years, in the Vietnam era, during Peace Marches and Free Mandela Marches,---growing up with heroes like Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, I have always believed that we can create our own reality through the power of our minds. I have seen the dreams of my heros become realities. Kennedy dreamed we could put man on the moon, an impossible dream, but he did it. Martin Luther King had an impossible dream. We live today in the realizations of that dream. Nelson Mandela imagined his nation united and at peace, when it was ripped apart in apartheid civil war. It was an impossible dream. With the simple secrets of forgiveness, understanding, and compassion, he unified an apartheid nation. These men taught me that it is possible to imagine an impossible dream, and see it happen.
I was 38 years old when John Lennon sang "Imagine".
The songs of our life are like time machines, whisking us back to the sights and sounds and delights of moments long past. Imagine is a song that is threaded through so many moments of years years in my life.
The first time that I heard it, I was instantly captivated by the inspiring words--- and by the feelings of deep love I heard within the sounds. These words became an integral part of who I am today, This song has became my life's theme song.
John Lennon wrote the songs for this album, to use as the soundtrack for "Imagine", his 1988 documentary film. His "Imagine" was one of the most beautiful art films that I have ever experienced. It is, of course, the best documentary film on John Lennon ever made. The timeless songs composed for its soundtrack are woven hypnotically though it.
It has been said that John Lennon used 528Hz frequency in his music. I find this very interesting. A guy named Dr. Horowitz published research on the 528Hz frequency, According to his theory, as he puts it, this frequency is the "center of the musical-mathematical matrix of creation". He describes it as the pure tone equalling love and healing.
And here it is! The film!
This historic film documentary by John Lennon will be released this February 11, 2014. My order is in!
All my life I have been accused of being a dreamer, as if it were a flaw in my character. Then I learned that I am not the only one!
