Jesus Christ Risen within us, Christ Consciousness, is this "Salty Dog"...a Real Hero, the Best Man, Jehovah's Witness...

Simply put this is truly one of the Very Best, Most Important Songs ever written...it is the Genius combination of Singer, Pianist, Gary Brooker (who wrote the Music) and Keith Reid, who did nothing else but write the lyrics for the Procol Harum songs...together, they wrote some of the Most Important songs ever created, including Conquistador, which we will be doing soon!

This song always makes me cry, as this is the perfection of God's One Story, in a 4-minute "Pop Song"...this is the story of Raising the Chrism Oil, raising Jesus Christ Within us, up into Heaven upon Earth...and thus, you simply cannot look at this song literally (as with ALL Procol Harum songs), as Keith Reid wrote ALL of the Lyrics Metaphorically...he is a Jew by his lineage, but a believer in Jesus Christ, as he did his own research to come to learn the Truth about the Son of Man...

Thus, in the song, the Captain, or Captain's Eye, is God within the Mercy Seat, just behind the Third Ventricle of our Brain...and the Sailing Ship is US, of course, as we learn to Crucify our Left Brain Ego, by LIVING the Teachings of Jesus Christ within the Bible (and what until you learn what has been suppressed from us)...and then, Miraculously, on that "Seventh Sea-Sick Day" comes the Eucatastrophe as Professor Tolkien would say, and the Chrism Oil is Raised into Heaven Upon Earth, and we become Christ-like because we did the work...the Best Man...the Witness...the Semen's Log (Testimony) at the Alchemical Marriage...bringing the Mother "Up the Aisle", or Spine (S - Pine Tree), to the Father to become a REAL FAMILY once more...the Holy or Hallowed Trinity...God Bless you All!
