John Winston Lennon (1940-1980) was an English singer, songwriter and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as the founder, co-lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist of the Beatles. After the Beatles disbanded in 1970, Lennon continued a career as a collaborator with his second wife, Yoko Ono.

Good morning Jeanne. I am very happy to be able to sit with you today. It has been a very long time, indeed. I have enjoyed your singing and truly have felt that through the years you have understood my passion for peace and love. However, I do recognize that I wasn’t always the good boy! And from time to time there are those who have wished to tarnish my name and condemn my behaviors. That way those individuals would not have to listen to my message.
Well, it doesn’t really matter at this point. I have been gone from your world for many years. For a long time I stayed around, communicating with Yoko when she wasn’t sobbing and hugely mad at me and the circumstances. As the years passed, however, I found it quite unnecessary to stay as much as I did, choosing rather to work on other projects where I am now before returning to the world environment for any reason.
In the last few earth years I have been in contact more and more. There is this revitalized need to touch base with the movement of the 60s and 70s and try to reestablish the energy that was so prominent at that time. I have also developed this wonderful relationship with my first-born son, Julian. I am so fortunate that he really listens and has been in the process of forgiving my many transgressions concerning him and his mother.
I am eternally grateful for the reprieve and the opportunity to connect to him in a way that I was unable to, before. This is all possible because he made it so. He heard me “knocking” on the consciousness of his soul and he opened the door and the healing began. The relationship is finally at a place when we can say "I love you" to one another and it is deeply felt and experienced. I was such a prick in the first years of my fame.
Because I was there for Sean’s birth the connection had already been established. It was and still is very strong. We communicate, and it is such a dream to have that privilege.
I came in today for several reasons. First, it is TIME for the season of LOVING. It is TIME for the season of PEACE. It is time for us to drop the swords, daggers and guns, and walk towards one another with open arms. It is time to have the courage to put aside the bullshit and create the circle of love within humanity that once was.
In my many travels and experiences over here, I have been privy to some very interesting things. It didn’t happen right away. I had things to unlearn myself. I had my own prejudices and programming that still inhibited my ability to process this vast universe before me. Once I was ready it all opened up. And what I saw was beyond anything I could have imagined.
I was shown that we HAVE created that circle of love within humanity. I was shown that it is still taking place. I experienced, firsthand the marvel of universal peace and prosperity, where each person was equally valued and treated with honor and respect. I was privy to the understanding of where this was, how it happened and how it could be maintained. Even from this world, where everything is so virtually unexplainable, I was stunned with the seeming perfection of it all: the consciousness of love and peace, joy and happiness, prosperity and unity. I was actually in the middle of my song Imagine, as I was witness to this world.
It was very difficult for me to wrap my head around the vision and experiences of what I was shown. In my own clumsy way I was trying to formulate some kind of understanding as to how, what , where, when etc. Fortunately, I have been blessed with some very wise teachers, and they were quick to remind me that my song Imagine came from this expression of reality. Here I thought I was just a smart guy writing a simple song.
That’s the thing. We never know where the inspiration comes from. And it really doesn’t matter. All that matters is that we pay attention and become actively involved with the inspiration.
Yes, I know, you want to know where I was when I had this epiphany, this profound experience. Well, the best way to describe it to you folks in the small experience of the human world is to encourage you to watch a few Star Trek episodes…the first ones. It isn’t for the great cinematic look -- lol. It is for the content, when from time to time Kirk and his group had to explain to a newer form of life that their earth world had transcended the need for greed, hunger, religion. That the earth world had welcomed in a new stage of peace and prosperity, doing away with those things that would prevent the equality of all. I remember how bizarre that was as a concept for those who watched the telly and saw that the earth world could be as One.
But the thing is, folks, it does exist and has existed. This concept is not unattainable. To believe brings the opening to changing the shape of old belief systems which have been so harmful and so full of oppression. The earth world is facing this crossroads again. And it is getting a bit scarier because each time this opportunity appears the resistance to a new world order is carefully swept under the rug in order to preserve the status quo for only a handful of people.
What can be done? Plenty.
This “world” I spoke of is in the future. In a non-linear fashion, this progression from darkness to light becomes the driving force in the world. What I saw, experienced was “in the future” -- our future. However, that does not mean that we must wait for it to become reality. Rather, it means that if we start now, really getting our hands dirty and changing mindsets towards the positive, this “future world” I walked in will become truth to you here. For some who are older it will probably be for your grandkids. What you do now will guarantee the world that I walked in for just a brief time. If you begin now, if you IMAGINE and work with the possibility of those words in the song, you can bring that very hopeful world order to each and everyone.
You may say I’m a dreamer, but I am not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as ONE.
This has always been my message and it will continue to be my message. I am grateful, so grateful that that song flowed through me. And as little understanding as I had about the impact of the song at the time, if there was any legacy to leave behind, besides my sons, it would be this song.
Yours through Infinity and Beyond,
