Nov. 29th 2005 -



4 years, this year, my dear George Harrison left us.







Ringo Starr's song "Never Without You" is quite in order -



"We were young, it was fun

And we couldn't lose

Time were right, overnight

We were headline news

Crazy days and reckless nights

Limosines and bright spotlights

We were brothers through it all



And your song will play on without you

And this world won't forget about you

Every part of you was in your song

Now we will carry on... Never Without you

(Without you Without You) Within you without you

Here comes the song it's about you



Here today, not alone

With my memories

Life is strange how things change

It's reality

You played a beautiful melody

That keeps on haunting me

I can always feel you by my side



And your song will play on without you

And this world won't forget about you

Every part of you was in your song

Now we will carry on... Never Without you

(Never Without You) Within you without you

(Within you without you)

Here comes the song it's about you



I know all things must pass

And only love will last

I'll always love the memory of you and me

Take it away Eric



And your song will play on without you

And this world won't forget about you

Every part of you was in your song

Now we will carry on...Never Without you

(Never Without You)Within you without you

(Within you without you)

I think that love is about you"





-------------------------















Hare Krishna, my Sweet George

May your soul always be with Krishna



i love you

Definitely my favorite Beatle, George was such a wonderful musician. His work has always been a bit overlooked when compared to Paul and John, but George's solo albums were just fantastic.



From everything I've read or seen about him, I think George had such a beautiful soul. He was an imperfect man striving to live life as fully and peacefully and honestly as possible. The world is worse off without him in it.

Great call acknowledging GH. A great man on many levels.

Wrote "Something" which is as good as it gets IMO.

Words From George Harrison

( from http://www.krsnabook.com/george/ )







"Everybody is looking for KRISHNA.



Some don't realize that they are, but they are.



KRISHNA is GOD, the Source of all that exists, the Cause of all that is, was, or ever will be.



As GOD is unlimited HE has many Names.



Allah-Buddha-Jehova-Rama: All are KRISHNA, all are ONE.



God is not abstract; He has both the impersonal and the personal aspects to His personality which is SUPREME, ETERNAL, BLISSFUL, and full of KNOWLEDGE. As a single drop of water has the same qualities as an ocean of water, so has our consciousness the qualities of GOD'S consciousness... but through our identification and attachment with material energy (physical body, sense pleasures, material possessions, ego, etc.) our true TRANSCENDENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS has been polluted, and like a dirty mirror it is unable to reflect a pure image.



With many lives our association with the TEMPORARY has grown. This impermanent body, a bag of bones and flesh, is mistaken for our true self, and we have accepted this temporary condition to be final.



Through all ages, great SAINTS have remained as living proof that this non-temporary, permanent state of GOD CONSCIOUSNESS can be revived in all living Souls. Each soul is potentially divine. Krsna says in Bhagavad Gita: "Steady in the Self, being freed from all material contamination, the yogi achieves the highest perfectional stage of happiness in touch with the Supreme Consciousness." (VI,28)



YOGA (a scientific method for GOD (SELF) realization) is the process by which we purify our consciousness, stop further pollution, and arrive at the state of Perfection, full KNOWLEDGE, full BLISS.



If there's a God, I want to see Him. It's pointless to believe in something without proof, and Krishna Consciousness and meditation are methods where you can actually obtain GOD perception. You can actually see God, and Hear Him, play with Him. It might sound crazy, but He is actually there, actually with you.



There are many yogic Paths--Raja, Jnana, Hatha, Kriya, Karma, Bhakti--which are all acclaimed by the MASTERS of each method.



SWAMI BHAKTIVEDANTA is as his title says, a BHAKTI Yogi following the path of DEVOTION. By serving GOD through each thought, word, and DEED, and by chanting HIS Holy Names, the devotee quickly develops God-consciousness. By chanting



Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare

Hare Rama, Hare Rama

Rama Rama, Hare Hare



one inevitably arrives at KRISHNA Consciousness. (The proof of the pudding is in the eating!)



I request that you take advantage of this book KRSNA, and enter into its understanding. I also request that you make an appointment to meet your God now, through the self liberating process of YOGA (UNION) and GIVE PEACE A CHANCE.

"He left this world as he lived in it, conscious of God,

fearless of death, and at peace, surrounded by family

and friends. He often said, 'Everything else can wait but

the search for God cannot wait, and love one another.' "

"Mystical One"

by George Harrison





"They say I'm not what I used to be

All the same

I'm happier than a willow tree

Shine or rain sitting here by a stream

(Mmm) There's nothing I'd rather feel

In this world

You and your sweet serenity

Rocking me

Melting my heart away



I know something so dear to me

Beyond words

Beautiful feeling in my soul

Sounds I've heard

Like humming birds in a dream

(Mmm) That mystical one I knew

Is returned

Lulling me with those raincloud eyes

Taking me

Melting my heart away



I am yes I am

I know what I feel

You came in my life

Made me more real



I know whatever we may have been

In past times

Has sorted the truth out from the rest

Win or lose

I always knew you'd be there

(Mmm) You answer my deepest prayer

In a song

Shimmering slowhand flowing clear

Moving me

Melting my heart away



I am yes I am

I know what I feel

You came in my life

Made me more real



(Mmm) That mystical one I knew

Is returned

Lulling me with those raincloud eyes

Taking me

Melting my heart away"

"and I stand

upon a mountain

made of weak and useless men"
