Hey guys!

I am currently writing a tongue-and-cheek article about John Lennon as a possibly reincarnate, and how he would be relevant to modern day society. Sounds silly, I know, but I am really looking forward to the outcome.

However, I need some help. I really need quotes by Mr. Lennon (or anyone related) about such topics. This means reincarnation, death, life after death, spirituality... anything like this!

I know there are a few around, especially during their trip to India period, but am struggling to find any online. I remember a few being in The Beatles Anthology, but like an idiot, I left this in my home country when I moved to London [Image Can Not Be Found]

Can anybody help? And if it's not too much trouble, references would be nice too!

Thanks guys!

I love the third one. I think that's great.

Of course, he also wrote "We all shine on..." and he did happen to say "Everyone loves you when your six foot in the ground." 

I'm looking here online and someone has a post on some board called "Help, I think my cat is the reincarnate of John Lennon," but unfortunately it won't load properly.

"Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try, no hell below us, above us only sky"

"God is a concept by which we measure our pain"

"You tell me you found Jesus. Christ!
 Well that's great and he's the only one
 You say you just found Buddha?
 and he's sittin' on his arse in the sun?
 You say you found Mohammed?
 Kneeling on a bloody carpet facin' the East?
 You say you found Krishna
 With a bald head dancin' in the street?" from his demo called Serve Yourself

Not sure if those help, but I don't know if he really believed in life after death.

In You Never Give Me Your Money, Dogget writes that someone claimed to be channelling Lennon's spirit. He'd allegedly written a new song that went "when your final day comes, you're gonna be dead". Doggett observes the damage being dead had done to Lennon's skills as a wordsmith.

Gotta say, this topic is the first topic I ever read on this forum and what caught my attention in the first place. I shared this article on another forum but looks like nobody cared there, maybe here people will? hard to say. Anyways, apparently John believed to be the reincarnation of Yoko's great-grandfather.

This is a link to the original article:

The family’s money had been made several generations earlier by her
great-grandfather Zenjiro Yasuda: this would intrigue Lennon when they
returned to Japan in the 1970s. During one of their visits, he picked up
a Japanese news magazine that contained a feature on prominent Japanese
figures who had shaped the country into a modern industrial and
economic powerhouse.

“It was about all these people who
influenced and affected Japan in history,” Yoko remembers. Lennon knew
nothing of Yasuda, but as Yoko told him more, he paused to reflect.

had refused the offer of a baronetcy from the then emperor; generations
separated the two men, but only a few years before his visit to Japan,
Lennon had handed back his MBE in protest against the British role in
the Biafran war and support of America in Vietnam. Yoko says that he
looked at a portrait of Yasuda and said: “That guy is me in my past

“He just said that Out Of The Blue,” Yoko recalls. “And I
said, ‘Don’t wish for that. Because he was assassinated.’ ” She found
out years later that her great-grandfather shared a birthday with her
late husband.

Elsewhere in the city there are reminders of
her previous incarnation as a young Japanese aristocrat. Yoko, small and
neat in her Bulgari sunglasses and jauntily angled hat, perches on the
balcony of the Hibiya Hall, the people’s concert auditorium built more
than 80 years ago by Yasuda — a self-made billionaire whose largesse to
the citizens of Tokyo is commemorated in a large bronze relief high on
the wall.

Her great-grandfather Yasuda, the creator of her
family’s wealth, was the son of a samurai. In 1858, when he was 20, he
moved to Tokyo to become a servant. An entrepreneur by nature, at the
age of 28, he opened a money-changing house and went on to found the
Yasuda Bank. It began as a bank for ordinary people with a branch in
every village, and grew into a hugely lucrative and influential business

Yasuda was killed in 1921 by a sword-wielding socialist named Heigo Asahi.

Asahi killed himself and left a letter to the world, saying that he’s
assassinated this capitalist. But some people believe that he had asked
my great-grandfather for money and he was refused. And others believe
that he was just a very enthusiastic socialist.”

year — the 30th anniversary of his death — Lennon would have turned 70.
Yoko has guarded her husband’s legacy and meets her lawyer every Tuesday
to discuss the latest developments concerning his estate. Not for the
money, though. She doesn’t need it.

“This is a very interesting thing,” she says.

great-grandfather Zenjiro created a huge financial power. And the
reason was, in those days bankers were the people who were seriously
changing the world.” But her father, who was a frustrated concert
pianist, had a different view. “He said, ‘No, they’re not the ones —
it’s going to be music that’s going to change the world.’ And he was
