1967 was rock music's greatest, most significant year and the Beatles were the era's greatest band
In rock music, every year has its masterpieces and timeless classics, but no year showcased as much brilliance as 1967. It was music that changed the world.
The Monterey Pop Festival was the first of the great outdoor rock festivals
Monterey attracted 200,000 people to northern California: they came to watch more than 30 popular bands and soloists, from the wild Janis Joplin and the Doors to the gentle Simon and Garfunkel. At one point, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones took the stage to introduce the next act: "I'd like to introduce a very good friend, a fellow countryman of yours. He's the most exciting performer I've ever heard - the Jimi Hendrix Experience."As it happens to be, I married a psycodelic girl born on the first day of August in 1967.The same day The Beatles released Hey Jude. And to this day she shines with the light of a thousand stars and whoever comes close to her falls under her spell.
Therefore, the Eye represents Truth that is permanent and available within everyone. The Crown on top of the eye is a representation of attainment, and therefore the Mastership which is possible by consciously becoming The Silent Watcher and acknowledging its authority within, rather than as an external entity.
The Flame breaking from the Crown is the Enlightenment that occurs when spiritual direction is achieved and Truth can be seen as an event rather than a quality. When one understands, rather than knows intellectually ... the difference between wisdom and knowledge.
"A falling leaf, thought I,
Fluttering back to the branch-
Was a butterfly "
For centuries, the haiku has been an integral part of Japonese cultural and spiritual life - a concise,evocative verse form that crystallises the poet`s intuition of life,nature,and beauty.
In a tradition that stretches into the distant past, Japonese artists re-create haiku in paintings,transforming poetic visions into lasting images of beauty and colour.
The theme of Moritake`s haiku is the harmony of man and nature
A butterfly, a falling leaf- they are the same in the mind of one who has beheld the unity of natur´s manifold handiwork.
