Mind Games Lyrics
Pushing the barriers planting seeds
Playing the mind guerrilla
Chanting the Mantra peace on earth
We all been playing those mind games forever
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil
Doing the mind...

"Mind games" is a euphemism for our entrapment in the five sense world that we perceive as reality "projecting our images in space and time" through love and peace we can realise our unlimited potential "love is the answer" He wanted for us to understand we are all one infinite consciousness.
This man knew the truth that's why they killed him R.I.P to a true inspiration.

We play these games throughout life of acting a certain way or doing things that seemingly please others. We have faith in the future, out of "Now", Meaning we never allow ourselves to truly live life in the here and now.
I think John was speaking to the "Now" meaning try just once to think about right now. Smell the roses, look at the trees and appreciate what we have at present.
Absolute elsewhere, dreaming of being not in the present as if the present holds no answers, so we project ourselves into a different time or space with the hope of something better.

Consciousness pretending there is a solid world is the mind game.
Faith in the future out of the now perpetuates the game.
Cultivating constant love vibration in heart reveals truth of above.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

"Mind games" are a good thing, not a bad thing. Mind games are the seemingly small but history-changing efforts of a small group of spiritually enlightened "mind guerillas" to "push [the] boundaries" of human social constructs, to "plant the seeds" of peace, and to "lift the veil" of the divine. This song is a rallying cry for all those silent bodhisattvas, sufis, and gnostics who through their small actions and intentions guide humanity toward the ultimate answer, which is...love.
