One of the more inspirational classic rock songs is Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man," a testament to the kind of personal growth and change that Ilchi Lee espouses.
A departure from their normal subject matter, the lyrics to Lynyrd Skyrnyrd recall a conversation between a young boy and his mother. The mother is giving him advice on how to live his life as he gets older.
The lyrics can occasionally sound more like proverbs than the lyrics to a classic rock tune: "Oh take your time/don't live too fast/troubles will come/and they will pass." Another section emphasizes a disassociating oneself from greed: "Forget your lust/for the rich man's gold/all you need/is in your soul."
Of course, the most well known part of the song comes from the chorus: "And be a simple kind of man/be something you love and understand/Baby be a simple kind of man/Oh won't you do this for me son if you can?"
The song has quite a bit in common with Ilchi Lee's own philosophy of spiritual and personal growth. For example, the line "be something you love and understand" is something that all people can live by, and ignoring greed and concentrating on your own spirituality is sound advice as well.
