"BECAUSE" - The Beatles
First off and on a personal note - this song of the Beatles has always "blown my mind" (as they sing in the song itself) !! The artistry just comes from another place, that sacred place which once the artist accesses - endless creativity abounds. When you listen to the lyrics closer, the reason the "blue sky" and the "wind" being "high" are blowing the artists mind... is because LOVE has entered his life. "Love is All - Love is You"... and once this awakening occurs, the world is forever changed - the blue sky, the high wind, and all of life manifesting itself to you, have acquired a forever changed meaning.
A side note: The beginning of the song is attributed to John Lennon listening to Yoko Ono play Bethoven's Moonlight Sonata on her piano, and asking her to play it backwards... that's where the inspiration of the intro to the song came from. (I haven't tried playing the Moonlight Sonata backwards, but hope to one day - you could in the old days with old record players.)
Hafez tells us beautifully here, that "never", once your heart has awakend to LOVE will you die; that you will enter the realm of life eternal once you have been touched by LOVE.
هرگز نمیرد آنکه دلش زنده شد به عشق
ثبت است بر جریده عالم دوام ما
Once touched by LOVE, no heart will ever perish
Chronicled is this truth to love's longevity, in creation's canon.
To Hafez, this awakening to LOVE - is celebrated via the even greater truth that not only does it sesitize you to the beauties of creation and of nature, but in actual fact, is the very elexir of eternal existence and longevity. The Beatles celebrating the awakening - Hafez reminding us of the impact of the awakening on our life's longevity.
Abbey Road: The mug in the photo is a picture of Abbey Road and what I drink my coffee out of usually, while posting my Hafez Blogs - and then it so happens that "Because" is also a track out of the Beatles Album: Abbey Road.
VIDEO: The video of "Because" I'm pasting below - it continues to "blow my mind"! I hope you enjoy it, too:
