John Lennon: An Imperative.

In all of it they clutched together, helping one another as a force of unity rather than individualistic idols scattered for individualism and fame for one.

Rimmed round glasses and hair that is significantly voluminous (his aunt Mimi used to say he resembled Jesus) with almost similar looks to that of Steve Jobs and a hint of Harry Potter. Yes, the guy who shook the world with his timeless beauty in lyrics and guitar fluency along with his band.

His voice soothes one’s heart along with Paul McCartney‘s Lyrics with whom John wrote lyrics in the dormitory even before “The Beatles” came in to existence.

It was “The Beatles” team involvement that inspired Steve Jobs greatly. And even during a speech to his co-workers he sparked them the beauty of team work through the unity held within “The Beatles”.

“My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.” ― Steve Jobs

Their integrity in music from their prolonged time they played at a club in Germany to their inclination to not see the people of Manila in Indonesia.

Rolling Stones glorified. Numerous many titles of their songs topped the charts. One of John Lennon‘s most mesmerizing piece of art in music was his collaboration with Paul McCartney, who after their trip to the Maharishi in India envisioned a dream of Mother Mary, which later lead them to write the song:

When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes
to me, speaking words of wisdom “Let it be”
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
speaking words of wisdom “Let it be”

Let it be, Let it be, let it be, let it be,
whisper words of wisdom
Let it be..

The soothing nature of such words and the musical calmness they brought about speaks of their integrity and the serenity they have touched deep within. Making many hearts subtle with their music, and lifting hearts of so many.
