the Spirit is in all sorts of places….

22 Apr

I was doing a facebook/internet wander and came across the name Ravi Shankar – we all know him but just not by name. Then I remembered the Indian-influenced Beatles songs I used to listen to when I was young (actually, my parents made me listen to them) and did another look-up on you tube to jog my memory.
The words are really what hit me:
Within You Without You

We were talking-about the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it’s far too late-when they pass away.
We were talking about the love we all could share when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our love
With our love we could save the world if they only knew.
Try to realize it’s all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you’re really only very small,
And life flows ON within you and without you_____
We were talking-about the love that’s gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul….
They don’t know they can’t see-are you one of them?
When you’ve seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there….
And the time will come when you see
we’re all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

I regret that God is not mentioned in this song. It’s close, but not quite. I would change the words to
‘When you’ve gone beyond yourself- you may find
that GOD, your real peace of mind
is waiting there……’

    I love George Harrison’s spirituality and his appreciation of Ravi Shankar inspired me!

    Is it…

    1) that you find God and then find peace of mind

    or is it

    2) that you find peace of mind and then realize that God was there the whole time

    I think the latter. What do you think?

      I think the latter. I don’t think God is a ‘forced’ concept. The more I try to imagine Him and what He wants from me the more out of spirit I feel. He just comes to me, sometimes at the most unexpected moments. And when He’s there, I know it.
