The song’s origins dated back to The Beatles’ 1968 trip to Rishikesh, India, where they studied Transcendental Meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The group first performed it during the Let It Be sessions in January 1969, where Paul McCartney assisted with some of the composition.
(“Did you know that George wanted to redo his guitar solos on ‘Gimme Some Truth’ and ‘How Do You Sleep?’ That’s the best he’s ever f***ing played in his life! He’d never get that feeling again. He’d go on for ever if you let him.” ~~John Lennon on George Harrison, June 1971)

Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give - pleasure, possessions, power - but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.
