Everybody’s Got One

On The Beatles album, Magical Mystery Tour, there is the song; “I am the Walrus,” which has, among other things, a voice chanting a particular phrase. Everyone took this particular phrase to be “everyone smoke pot,” but John Lennon insisted that the correct phrase was “everyone’s got one.”

I tend to take the latter explanation as being correct. Here’s why; let’s take a look at some of the lyrics from “Instant Karma.”

“Who in the hell d’you think you are?
A super star?
Well, right you are!

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Ev’ryone come on”

 

So what is it that everyone’s got? Well, a connection, a source, whatever you want to call it. It’s a source of power and wisdom where one’s truth can be found. Dig it; in the Old Testament, you find these people called Judges. Judges were the only ones who could talk to God, so that pretty much eliminates any argument and makes the Judge a god practically speaking. Anyone who had any argument with this was taken out and promptly stoned to death. Hence our societal preoccupation with thinking that ‘authorities’ should be doing our thinking for us and making our decisions. As far as how is that working for us, I don’t need to ask.

If one looks at the history of music and art, one finds this same theme; that one person doing the thinking for many was not the intended way and will not, ultimately work. There is not a human being that is superior by birthright or chosen by god that can solve all our problems for us. Each individual is the only one who can solve his or her problems and that will be done by looking within to their own source or connection to the universe because ‘everyone’s got one.’
