Within You, Without You

My tummy hurts. It started when I got home last night (Fellow Seeker, Veteran Seeker and I saw "Rent") and has not let up since. I went to school to pick up a recommendation that I need for an interview on Monday, went to the lounge and laughed at Mr. Dirty Jokes' parodies of "Rent" songs, and then came back home.

In the car, on the local classic rock station, I heard several George Harrison songs. ("Apple Scruffs," which inspired my screen name for those of you who know it, was one of them. Oooooh :) I was wondering why they were playing George songs until I realized that today is November 29. The four year anniversary of George's death. *Sigh*

They played Within You, Without You, which I think is a beautiful, profound song by a beautiful, profound person.

We were talking
about the space between us all
and 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.
