Transcendental Thought for the Day

This song has been going through my head for days now. It is an amazing piece of work both musically and lyrically. This song is forty years old...just like me and yet it's relevance is timeless. I revisited the words and have been thinking about their meaning and life.
Within You and 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

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

- George Harrison
