You could sing it to Coming Round The Mountain if you wanted. All I’ve done on this is shorten it. The actual meaning of the words is not important, although there are various forms of addressing the spiritual Lord – God, if you like. They are more a sort of magical vibration to bring about a spiritual awareness. ‘God has many names, and, while I’ve always believed in the existence of a God, I never knew what to call him. This is just another way of finding spiritual communion.’ Asked if he would join the sect, George looked a bit dubious. ‘No, I’m not putting these people forward as being the only right ones in the world. I’m just bringing them to the attention of the public. If they like them, well and good; if not, it’s not for me to say they’re wrong. ‘Anyway,’ he added, wryly, ‘they are not allowed to touch stimulants, and though I don’t take spirits or wine, I drink coffee and smoke.’ George also believes that if everyone attempted to become more spiritually conscious there would be more chance of having a peaceful world, but he says that it’s up to the individual to find his own way of achieving this awareness. “ – The Beatles Book, October 1969 // #music #OTD #1960s #1970s #thateventuality
