Channelling John

"They let me come back long enuff for this special message."

Our regularly-scheduled material has been pre-empted to bring you this special issue on CHANNELLING
CHANNEL 9 CHANNEL 9 'Everyone knew that as time went by we'd get a little bit older and a little bit slower....' ''ey, loook! oI'm a ruddy 'toon! ...again! oh, uh... Hi, All! oI'm John Lennon.
They let me come back long enuff for this special message. Said I couldn't even say 'Hi' to Yoko and me kids. Made me clean up me act, too. So LISSEN!
Its this 'channelling' stuff. I'm supposed to tell you you've got it all wrong. (Nothing new in that, eh?) Well, not all wrong, just...
Look, if a teaching helps you, it's true. Imagine there's no real or not real as you usually think of it. Just what's happening in your mind.
For you, that's real... (mumble) h'wha? Whattaya mean we've used up half our space already? Not a lot of room in this ruddy book, is're?
Okay, so take any teaching, this Eur-an-shee-uh Book for example. you can't be sure it's true. Not really. Not until you get where I've been...
But lemme tell ya, it's so great! The truth is...
Hey! They edited ME? Look earth-cats. We're doin' what we can to loosen up the administration here.
But you've got to give that worldwide peace a lot better chance, they're telling me. Get on with it!
Okay, well, the thing on channelling is, ask yourself, what isn't channelled?
Everything you see and do and think has messages in it from all these blinkin' spirits and folks you' not even been told about yet!
And it's stuff that's in front of you every day. Star Trek's 'Prime Directive.' CNN's world perspective and penetration, poetry, arts, and of course...
...MUSIC! You think we weren't all of us channelling together as Sgt. Pepper's?!? Hahaha we [CENSORED!]
Awrite, awrite. Make PEACE! Let's get you guys back in the circuits. They'll let me tell you this much, we got this right: All you need is love!
Okay, so long luvs. Gotta go. Harry just got here, and we're going to go jam with a few of our old mates from earth. See ya when you get here!

The words
[to "Across the Universe"]
stand, luckily, by themselves.
They were purely inspirational and were given to me as
I don't own it, you know;
it came through like that.
I don't know where it came from, what meter it's in,
and I've sat down and looked at it and said,
"Can I write another one with this meter?"
It's so interesting:
"Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup,
they slither while they pass,
they slip across the universe."
Such an extraordinary meter and I can never repeat it!
It's not a matter of craftsmanship;
it wrote itself.
It drove me out of bed.
I didn't want to write it,
I was just slightly irritable and I went downstairs
and I couldn't get to sleep until I put it on paper,
and then I went to sleep.
It's like being possessed;
like a psychic or a medium.
The thing has to go down.
It won't let you sleep,
so you have to get up,
make it into something,
and then you're allowed to sleep …
So letting it go is what the whole game is.
You put your finger on it,
it slips away,
—John Lennon,
