JOHN LENNON’S SPIRITUAL BELIEFS
I was preparing for bed and switched on Radio 2 to listen to the 11 p.m. news. Afterwards disk jockey, Brian Matthews, played ‘My Sweet Lord’ by George Harrison but something strange happened to the record. The music played but the vocals disappeared during the first verse of this familiar song. They returned again for the second verse and the song returned to normal.
At breakfast the following morning I listened to the radio news. John Lennon had been shot dead in America. And the time of the assassination was 11 p.m.- the exact time of the missing verse on the record!

Strange coincidences often somehow connect themselves to sudden and tragic events. Many weird twists of events have been associated with tragedies such as the Titanic and Hindenberg disasters for example.
John Lennon was himself interested in psychic things and on many occasions attended seances. It is believed that he had a premonition that he would be shot. He even stated that his fear of murder caused the Beatles to break up. “We were not bored,” he said “and certainly did not run out of songs. I was paranoid about somebody trying to bump us off.” But John Lennon also believed in an afterlife. “I am an optimist about eternity. I believe in life after death. I believe that death is not an end but a beginning.”
