reasons why i love george harrison - 1/???
the way george viewed life was incredible. to me, it was amazing and quite comforting. the way he saw life and death is definitely one of the reasons why i love him, because he was so incredibly positive about it all even though he knew his days were limited. he said “well i dont even like it here anyway! i wont miss anything except for my family but i really dont mind death”. for basically my whole life i have been terrified of death but ever since i knew about george and saw how he viewed it, how he perceived it, i have been starting to accept it too and like george, i know that ill be more at peace and ill be ready because after all we all die and it is our choice how to see death. george wasnt suicidal at all and he didnt see death as a way of releasing his pain, he loved living but he also knew that death is part of life and he would be ready for it when it was his time to rest. "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.”
