What Religion is John Mayer?

Does John Mayer have a religion? What religion is he?  Jewish? Christian? Atheist?  By simply listening to his music it’s apparent that he is a religion but you can clearly see that John Mayer is definitely searching for God, whether he openly would say that or not.

I’ve been an avid fan of John since Room for Squares.  Even “Inside Wants Out” is a great album.  His unreleased stuff “Sucker”, “Breakaway”, “Why Did You Mess With Forever”,  “Taking On Water”….yes, I’m pretty much a fangirl.  But over the years, I’ve noticed something a little intriguing about his music.

If you really take apart his lyrics album to album, you will find a few themes that keep surfacing over and over again:

Heart Wrenching Break Ups
(Victoria, Split Screen Sadness, Slow Dancing in a Burning Room, Heartbreak Warfare, Badge and Gun)

Wanting to go back and do things over, be a kid, or stop time
(1983, If I Ever Get Around to Living, stop this train)

Wanting to be with someone you’re not with whether an ex or someone else’s lover
(Dear Marie, Something Like Olivia Still Feel Like Your Man, You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me,  Dreaming with a Broken Heart)

Song enticing a woman but admitting he wont commit –
(Half of My Heart, Tracing, I Don’t Trust Myself With Loving You)

Saying things he shouldn’t have said
(My Stupid Mouth, Come Back to Bed)

What central theme is underlying in almost all of these things?

Lust, remorse, longing, repeat.  It would seem like John Mayer is pretty wise. He has  enough awareness to realize the futility of the material life and his introspective thinking won’t allow him to truly believe we are in a “what you see is what you get” type of existence.  Just listen to his lyrics…John is definitely open to the idea of something more…

Is there a God
Why is he waiting
Don’t you think of it odd
That he knows my address
“New Deep” – Heavier Things

And he usually is pretty fair at taking a look at himself and seeing the dark recesses of the human heart…including the nonsensical destruction of fantasizing of giving in to temptation when you’re in a perfectly happy relationship:

Oh, I never know what makes this man
Take all the love that his heart can stand
And dream of ways to throw it all away
“Gravity” – Continuum

And he’s open to admit it seems like these problems are unshakably a result of our own blood filled hearts.  This songs seems to be his most honest look at the human heart and it’s mechanisms of self destruction.

I can feel the love I want
I can feel the love I need
but it’s never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
“In the Blood” – The Search for Everything

But he also seems to be searching for that something extra in all the wrong places….women, alcohol, fame and ironically his own success in the music world seem like the big obstacles in his hunt for truth.  John does seem to be closing in on really asking the right questions in the title of his album “The Search for Everything”, though.  Even though the songs within the album seem to tread through his familiar love and loss type ground, he seems to be drawing closer to conclusions to a truth that will set him free from the cycle.  I can only hope John finds that truth that his soul seems to be driving him to go after.

Friends….check
Money….check
A well slept….check
Opposite sex…check
Guitar….check
Microphone….check
Messages waiting on me when I come home….
Somethings missing….

Well, what’s missing, John?  What else would it be other than God?  What is missing from the life of an internationally touring, multi-talented, grammy winning, attractive, wealthy, successful man with a loving family, relationships with the beautiful women, adoring fans and a collection of watches and guitars that would make anyone jealous?  All his victories are material.  You can’t fill a spiritual void with something material, no matter how much material you have at your expense.  The only thing missing is God. And some part of him knows it.  But it’s hard to truly seek God when you’re rich and famous because it sometimes it means parting ways with those things in order to do it…

“It’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven”

I hope that John really truly finds what he’s looking for.  So what religion does this make him?  I wouldn’t say John Mayer has any religion but he by his words and thoughts he appears to be agnostic: open to the idea of God, not fully set on what that might mean but willing to explore and listen.

Su definición explica con qué facilidad algunas personas o lugares pueden ver la promoción de un producto que simplemente no está a la altura de lo que se dice.Me parece que ha abordado un tema que se ha hecho y definitivamente se sigue haciendo a través de Internet para hacer que un producto suene tan bien cuando ni siquiera vale la pena el tiempo que se tarda en leerlo.¡Comprador sea consciente!

They also know what types of cars are susceptible to higher risk as well as higher risk they may have the higher a premium price.

  51. In accordance with my observation, after a foreclosures home is available at a sale, it is common for any borrower to be able to still have some sort ofthat remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage. There are many loan merchants who make an effort to have all costs and liens paid off by the following buyer. However, depending on particular programs, legislation, and state regulations there may be a number of loans that are not easily handled through the transfer of financial loans. Therefore, the duty still rests on the debtor that has acquired his or her property in foreclosure. Thanks for sharing your opinions on this blog site.

These sensors involving some cams change in in the area of contrast, while others make use of a beam involving infra-red (IR) light, specifically in low lumination.
