    At first George was reluctant to record his song because he was not sure if people would accepr the spiritual/religious connations of the song.

    God is almighty, the answer to all. He's so sweet he forgives us no matter how many times we mess up. He is a forgiving father who knows that we all return to him no matter how far we fall. He's everything, and i can't wait to see him.

    I see goerge harrison as praying and talking with god, knowing there is so much to accomplish spiritually before the final merge with god - no matter what name he is called by. Spirituality is a gradual growth. By any name, god is god. He answers by all names and he was never land will never be limited by form or name, and george harriso recognized him as one in all. He was definitely very advanced spiritually and loved god. It is also my understanding that he loved bhagavahan sri sathya sai baba and he was a major inspiration in his life. Recently, a video of darshans of sri sathya sai baba was released with this song in the background. That showed his love and respect for him.

    Too bad. It could have been a beautiful christian song. That's why u have to be careful what you sing, u could be singing to some false god, pagan religion and not even kno it. Scary.

    He expressed what all humans want deep down - a search for and to know god and ultimately unite with him
