Some Kind of Druid Dude

The lyrics of John Lennon’s ‘Mindgames’ are just wonderful. Lennon knew that Peace and Love, the cornerstones of counter-cultural idealism, were deeply connected with Druidism, and so he sang about this in his ‘Mind-Games’:

We’re playing those mind games together,
Pushing the barrier, planting seeds.
Playing the mind guerrilla,
Chanting the Mantra, ‘Peace on Earth’.
We all been playing those mind games forever
Some kinda druid dude lifting the veil.
Doing the mind guerrilla,
Some call it magic – the search for the grail.
Love is the answer, and you know that for sure.
Love is a flower- you got to let it, you got to let it grow.

  1. A wonderful reminder that peace can be an easy choice once we get our minds together, both on an individual level and a collective one – in our immediate surroundings and worldwide.
