Identifier

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

In the first part of the following Moody Blues’s song they are describing synaesthesia ‘the sight of a touch’ and the ‘scent of a sound’, but lying in the meadow eyes closed warm and at peace and hearing the grass sing may indeed help us to find the Lost Chord

A description of the experience

Departure – Moody Blues

Be it sight, sound, the smell, the touch.
There's something,
Inside that we need so much,
The sight of a touch, or the scent of a sound,
Or the strength of an Oak with roots deep in the ground.
The wonder of flowers, to be covered, and then to burst up,
Thru tarmac, to the sun again,
Or to fly to the sun without burning a wing,
To lie in the meadow and hear the grass sing,
To have all these things in our memories hoard,
And to use them,
To help us,
To find...
