Neil Young is a Canadian poet/musician who has contributed music that embodies the everyday struggle of man and provides a depth of consciousness that hasn’t been duplicated.  Under-appreciated as a guitarist, Young’s possession of the six-string can be heard in songs such as “Hurricane” and “Down By The River”.  The 1971 BBC Live concert where Neil performed a timeless set of songs; this is personally one of the best acoustic sessions I’ve heard. 

He has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, once as an individual and as a band member of Buffalo Springfield, along with Richard Furay, and Stephen Stills who also collaborated with Neil in the super-group, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Neil Young is Project Astrals’ first TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK who’s still in this physical world.

The Doors name derives from Aldous Huxley’s book “The Doors of Perception” a psychedelic experience induced by drug-use.  Jim Morrison as known for his controversial antics on stage and he entered a stage of mysticism towards the later years of his life. 

DoorsofPerception

Poetic and yet violent in his inner emotions of a self-claimed “Revolution” Morrison took the persona “Lizard King” and mentioned instances of Native American Shamanism in his poetry.  In an interview on a car wreck of dead Native Americans he witnessed while on a road trip with his parents, Morrison said –

The reaction I get now thinking about it, looking back—is that the souls of the ghosts of those dead Indians… maybe one or two of ’em… were just running around freaking out, and just leaped into my soul. And they’re still in there.”

Jim Morrison died at the age of 27 while in Paris, and the theories regarding his death have lived on.  Jim Morrison is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

T.S. Eliot

TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK

T.S. Eliot

ts-eliot.00_00_00_00.Still001

Born Thomas Stearns Eliot
26 September 1888
St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.
Died 4 January 1965 (aged 76)
Kensington, London, England

Born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1888, T.S. Eliot was a poet, essayist and literary genius who helped stabilize British and American poetry in 1915 with his Magnum opus “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”.  T.S. Eliot’s symbolic approach to “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” leaves the door of the subconscious open to its readers and the analysis up for debate.  Originally titled “Prufrock Among the Women” the poem explores concepts of erotic sexual tension and denial; the intellectual status of Alfred Prufrock is questioned by Alfred Prufrock himself. 

T.S. Eliot lived in England most of his life and applied for British citizenship in 1927.  He produced very few poems; the majority of his poetry is spread-out and captures the various periods of his life.  He approached Christian mysticism and symbology in his later works such as “Four Quartets“.  T.S. Eliot combines attributes of Hindu God Krishna into Western mysticism in “The Dry Salvages,” a free-flowing launch into an aquatic journey of meditation; time ceases to maintain a sense of substance as the reality of one’s self is truly processed. 

For this work within the mystic realm, T.S. is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

Sai Baba of Shirdi, an Indian mystic, and Saint in Hinduism/Islam mastered many miracles during his lifetime.  Sai Baba had the power of Dhouti Yoga and invented his own form that included the removal of his intestines and body parts for “internal cleansing”.  He would hang his intestines to dry on a nearby tree while he removed the rest of his body in a similar fashion.  Sai Baba was also a guru of Khanda Yoga and was seen completing the act by devotees and common men.

It’s not exactly known if Sai Baba was Muslim or Hindu, but both religions praise his miracles and believe him to be a holy avatar.  For many years, Sai Baba lived in solitary and spoke in puzzling tounges, he would roam the nearby forests to meditate and forge for food; his strange ways attracted followers who helped forge the Sai Baba’s movement and beliefs.  He performed acts of multilocation (being two places at once), transvection (levitation), spiritual healing, and telepathy (mind reading).  Sai Baba devoted himself to Godly scriptures, the path of God (Bhakti Yoga), the path of Knowledge (Jnana Yoga) and Path of Action (Karma Yoga). 

For his work within the mystic realm, Sai Baba is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.
