Everything is silly from a certain point of view.  

The point-of-view of a silly girl, for instance. a-hard-days-night-george-10 

Um, back on topic, anyone? I can't think of much to say that hasn't already been said here, except for 'Yes, I think John was haunted by his inner emptiness all his life.'

At the risk of straying too much off topic, let me suggest that you take an experiential approach to your faith, instead of an intellectual or dogmatic one. I am much more receptive to the energies at mass if I am able to turn off my mind and be open to them.   

Well, my host-family is Japanese and they are Shintoists. They took me to a shrine and the place did feel somehow mystical. Now I totally did get off topic :'D

It certainly can seem silly if you are not used to it. But there is definitely a reason behind every detail.  

I know the reasons behind it I just find all the ceremony and pomposity very difficult to take seriousy.

Yes, that is true. And I've read also that childhood trauma leads to addictions in adulthood--alcohol, sex, drugs, etc. It's clear that John's search was sparked by his childhood trauma, and that, as Paul said in a recent interview, John's whole life was in some way a cry for help. I think his sexual identity was also somewhat conflicted, with the recent revelation from Yoko that he had a secret attraction for men that he never fulfilled. I'm sure this came in some degree from having an absent father, and I wonder to what degree being raised by a gay uncle was an influence (his uncle George and aunt Mimi never had sex). It's clear that with Paul, Brian, Stuart, the Maharishi, Magic Alex, Arthur Janov, and others, John was always looking for a strong male presence in his life. I think he found this in Yoko, who is very male.  

Actually, there's a reason why John Lennon liked to cling to another people, that's because he was born with weak element condition. Just look at John Lennon 's Chinese astrological chart.

John Lennon
Birth hour: 18.30 (yin wood rooster)
Birth date: 9 (yin wood rooster)
Birth month: October (yang fire dog)
Birth year: 1940 (yang metal dragon)
Zodiac sign: Dragon

As you can see from the chart above, John Lennon was born with weak yin wood element and strong yang metal element. His element chart is also lacking of fire element and water element. So, John Lennon ’s element could be described as life-threatening, weak, and imbalanced. That’s why he needed other people to support him so John could sustain himself.

Next, let’s take a look at Paul McCartney ’s Chinese astrological chart.

Paul McCartney
Birth hour: 14.00 PM (yin fire goat)
Birth date: 18 (yang water tiger)
Birth month: June (yang fire horse)
Birth year: 1942 (yang water horse)
Zodiac sign: Horse

As you can see from the chart above, Paul McCartney was born with strong yang water element and strong yin fire element.

Already at the first place we can see why they initially liked each other. John Lennon ’s element was too cold, he lacked fire element, lacked water element, his yin wood element was weak, and his yang metal element was too strong. John Lennon needed a person with warming element to help him sustained himself. Paul McCartney ’s chart is too hot, he has too excessive fire element which made his yang water element very hot, to the boiling point. Paul McCartney felt good in the presence of someone with cooling element in order to chill down himself.

John Lennon ’s strong yang metal element was useful for Paul McCartney to reduce his excessive fire element, Paul McCartney in turn could make use of his strong yin fire element to melt down John Lennon ’s excessive metal element. Paul McCartney also could make use of his strong yang water element to nurture John Lennon ’s weak yin wood element. This was perfect element combination.

10 years lucky cycle

And then, there was also zodiac match between John Lennon and Paul McCartney , especially throughout the Beatles earlier years.
John Lennon ’s dog was harmonizing with Paul McCartney ’s double horse and tiger. Just look at John Lennon ’s Chinese astrological chart and Paul McCartney ’s Chinese astrological chart writen previously to understand this explanation.
Then, Paul McCartney was going through monkey luck cycle from the age of 17 to the age of 26 which made him attracted to John Lennon ’s dragon year (John Lennon was born in the year of 1940, 1940 was dragon year). As for the clearer explanation, look at Paul McCartney ’s luck cycles below.

Paul McCartney ’s luck cycles:
Age of 7 to 16: sheep luck cycle
Age of 17 to 26: monkey luck cycle
Age of 27 to 36: rooster luck cycle
Age of 37 to 46: dog luck cycle
Age of 47 to 56: pig luck cycle
Age of 57 to 66: ox luck cycle

On the other hand, John Lennon was going through rat luck cycle which went so well with Paul McCartney ’s monkey luck cycle. As for the clearer explanation, look at John Lennon ’s luck cycles below.

John Lennon ’s luck cycle:
Age of 10 to 19: pig luck cycle
Age of 20 to 29: rat luck cycle
Age of 30 to 39: ox luck circle

In general the three, dragon, rat, and monkey are very fond of each other. Because of John Lennon ’s dragon year (1940) and rat luck cycle (from the age of 20 to 29) could harmonize very well with Paul McCartney ’s monkey luck cycle (from the age of 17 to 26), they had harmonious relationship with one another which was happened between John and Paul during those early Beatles years. John’s rat luck cycle and Paul’s monkey luck cycle supported one another which made John and Paul’s relationship was particularly solid during early Beatles years. As the result of the harmonious Lennon-McCartney relationship, The Beatles finally reached its tremendous success.

Then, what went wrong with their relationship? Why their relationship declined? Considering they had such good element combination with one another. Here’s the explanation:

Then she comes, a wood to climb on

John Lennon was a person with weak yin wood element, so he would naturally attracted to people with strong wood element.

Paul McCartney ’s yin fire element was useful for John Lennon to keep his yin wood warm and his yang metal element controlled. Paul McCartney ’s yang water element was also useful for John Lennon to nurture his weak yin wood element. But at one point, John Lennon wanted to grow further his wood element, to do so he needed to cling himself to another person with strong wood element.

As the result, he was attracted to Yoko Ono. John Lennon was attracted to Yoko Ono because Yoko Ono has strong yin wood element. Yoko has strong yin wood element because she was born in the month of tiger (18 February). Then, she also has yang fire element and yin water element. John felt that Yoko Ono could help him to sustain himself and further growing his own element.

John Lennon used Yoko Ono’s strong yin wood element to grow further his weak yin wood element. On the same time, John’s strong yang metal element was useful for Yoko Ono to trim her excessive yin wood element.

Because of his relationship with Yoko Ono, his relationship with Paul McCartney finally deteriorated which lead to the split between them. John Lennon split with Paul McCartney because he felt that Paul’s element wasn’t sustainable for him anymore.

In the year of 1969, there were a couple of elemental clashes between Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney , and John Lennon . As the result of a couple of element clashes between the three of them, John Lennon and Yoko Ono became hostile to Paul McCartney which finally lead to the Lennon-McCartney feud. At that stage the differences between John and Paul were increasing by the day, their luck cycle didn’t support them anymore. While Yoko just finished the whole thing off by taking John away. Paul McCartney became hostile to Yoko Ono because of this thing. As the result, Lennon-McCartney partnership broke up and The Beatles was finally broke up as well.

For almost a decade Lennon and McCartney had a very good element match and their combined personalities were producing an amazing chemistry.

John Lennon ’s strong yang metal element gave him one kind of sharpness, which is easily detectable on his song lyrics. His fragile yin wood element gave him gentleness but on the same time his dragon zodiac sign made him powerful. He had the ability to lead the others straight to the battlefield.

Paul McCartney ’s strong yang water element gave him the special ability to understand music and adapting any kinds of music according to the required style. His double horse signs on his astrological chart (see Paul McCartney ’s Chinese astrological chart writen previously, he has double horse signs on his astrological chart) made him friendly, sociable, and likable especially on the stage. Then, he also has the strong characteristic of a pioneer who would always seek for new and groundbreaking things.

Tiffany, hi, welcome to the forum.

You've posted three very similar messages on this forum, along a link to an article which I've removed. I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt, in case you're a genuine Beatles fan rather than a spammer, and I'm leaving your messages up in case someone else finds them of interest.

If you link one more time to that site, or post very similar messages in multiple threads, I'll have to suspend or remove your posting rights (I see you've left that link on other sites too, including Quora and Exemplore). Please don't do it. I'll post this reply on your other threads too.

You're welcome here as long as you write original content. If it looks like you're just here to plug other sites and articles please don't do it.

John was trying to help others and in my opinion set out to find these truths so that he could bring the good news message back to ALL. He believed in people and their potential to change for the better, but not to be better in the future, to be better NOW.

He said '' From a cosmic perspective each person should be treated as a fellow human being, sharing material wealth and the Earths resources in the interests of social harmony in the here and now, how we best use the time we have''.

He believed everybody was equal saying ''they are all infinite, they all have infinite possibilities''

By doing these things with Peace and Love at its core we become better people, not just to ourselves but to others too.If we care for each other, watch out for each other, show genuine friendship for each other, hate and all the other things that are divisive in this world fade away and become a myth or portent to warn us to keep the Peace and Love foremost in our lives, lest we return to those bad divisive ways.   

I'm not convinced John actually said some of the things mentioned here did he? I don't like it when John is made up to be some kind of messianic Ghandi figure and I don't think that's what he was about.

The poster is actually quoting Gary Tillery's synopsis of what John believed, as far as I can tell:

"In the better world Lennon proposed, people would forgo violence and act out of love and mutual respect. They would recognize that such traditional classifiers as religion, nationality and skin color are meaningless from a cosmic perspective and that any person should be treated simply as a fellow human being. Further, they would be content to share material wealth and the earth’s resources in the interest of having a milieu of social harmony within which to explore the potential of their own lives."
