Between the dreaming and the coming true, we realize the love that has found us, catching us when we stumble, showing us something good on a dark day.  Every moment offers a second chance.  With Michael we have a healing balm, a sacred partnership.  The more truth we tell, the more possibilities for truth to happen, for we know that changing beliefs leads to changed behavior, ultimately changing the choices we make.  The past and future meet in how we remember, what we remember, and why we remember, forming a personal map of our individuality.  Although each of us has a different character story, we truly understand the concept that good things are meant tosave michael forty eight be shared.  Eileen Mayhew reminds us that tears water our soul, and we have cried an ocean of them with a loss that has shaped our futures.  This is a story worth telling, a story that strikes most nearly to the heart.  (Caitlin Matthews)

And so, we take from Michael’s words:  I thank my fans around the world.  I love you.  I couldn’t be ME without YOU.  With the energy of a pulsing love that does not stop, we are guided toward who we are and what we can become.  One wonderful revelation leads to another.

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.  The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices, and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”

Michael’s artistry, his character in the face of great opposition, his unyielding choices build a picture of his day to day life, and sear into our souls the epic life we will never forget.  Two thoughts emerge:  You can tell a lot about a person by who they admire.  Is this who we want to be?  Although life often feels like wandering through treacle…wesave michael fifty four know without a doubt:  Michael Jackson’s life and artistry are a clear blueprint for the world we desire.  “A new world will be won not by those who stand at a distance with their arms folded, but by those who are in the arena.”  Nelson Mandela  Michael spent his life speaking for cause.  His messages touched on humanities’ struggles, delivering UNITY, SENSITIVITY, EMPATHY, WISDOM, TRUTH, LIGHT, LOVE, AND TRANSFORMATION (In the Arms of the Beloved).  This is not a spectator sport.  We join Michael in the arena.

“He was a man who gave his whole soul into the world.  When can you write about a man who offered total and unconditional love and contribution to the happiness of millions of people around the world.  Through his music, not  to mention the many who he visited, sick children in hospitals in many countries around the world.  Who gave generously and sincerely…gifts, tickets to his show, and lifted spirits to help them improve.  I am the mother of one of those children.  My son and I had the opportunity to meet Michael in the children’s hospital in Sydney on November 18, 1987.  I won’t forget that day as long as I live.  When Michael arrived at the hospital with an abundance of toy animals that he generously offered all the children in the room…he went from room to room and personally visited every child…softly saying words of comfort.  I’ll never forget the joy of those children, and the medical staff and parentssave michael forty nine visiting the children that day.  Michael, I know you’re with angels.  God bless your soul.  You will live in our hearts forever.  Thank you for the music.”

“All this stuff about Michael being a weirdo…it’s a pile of goddamn shit.  I’ve recorded a whole lot of these pop musicians, and this guy’s the straightest of the goddamn lot!”  Bruce SwedienPURITY SIX

Our confidence and love come from the profound kindness of Michael Jackson.  Seeing the lows in the media, shocked by its depths…we go high.  Across millions of miles, our heartbeats are tossed in unison rhythm…ONE VOICE, ONE LOVE.  It is in our DNA.  Celebrating the past, joining together in the present…creating a future in Michael’s name.  IT IS ALL FOR LOVE!

“WITH EVERY BREATH HE TOOK MICHAEL INHALED THE WORLD’S SUFFERING AND EXHALED PURE LOVE.”

Rev. June Gatlin

“He honestly believed it was his job to heal and make a difference.  From the depth of his being, his mission was transformation and transcendence.  He wanted us to go to that higher level of consciousness with him.  With a heart as enormous as his talent, Michael took to BEING the instrument of change that this world so desperately needs.”

HOW WE REMEMBER…

WHAT WE REMEMBER…

WHY WE REMEMBER…

In the Arms of the Beloved sets forth these truths:  “THE GIFT was that the world, if they wanted to, could now see with crystal clarity what had been given to us.  THE GIFT was that the world, if they wanted to, could finally stop addressing who Michael Jackson ISN’T, and begin to flow with who HE IS.  IT WAS ALWAYS THERE…hiding in plain sight.”  Revisiting what is in plain sight reminds us of why we are here and inspires forward vision.  Our continued searching leads to greater wisdom for “Embedded within Michael’s works were the Keys and Codes of activation He needed us to have.  The multiple layers He loved to create allowed for any open heart functioning at any given level of understanding to be impregnated with these codes.  The alchemy this union created was the Maestro’salove three greatest gift.”  (In the Arms of the Beloved)  With Michael Jackson’s artistry, everything has a purpose.  Those who interpret his lessons as singular in intent miss the deeper layers of instruction.  Revelations take time and study.  The sacred is found according to each individual need, with wisdom’s golden gifts grown in the fertile soil of the soul.  “No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”  Helen Keller’s words speak to the capacity of the inner reservoir.  The REAL THING has been revealed:  priming the pump of inspiration is defined with a single word…MICHAEL.

“He was a man of power, of positive power that brought people together.  He brought  people of all walks of life, all nationalities, friends and foes alike.  He was healing in spirit because he healed a lot of people with his music and with his spirit.  Being in his presence, when he visited hospitals, the children would be miraculously healed.”

Jonathan Moffetmercy two

An Avatar leads an entire world.  (In the Arms of the Beloved)  Present in our thoughts and actions today, Michael Jackson leads us to be who we really are, do what needs to be done, and have the world we want.  The ties of love and hope are strengthened as education thaws the frozen hell of  those who find Michael Jackson a steep learning curve.  “Every moment a voice out-of-this-world calls on our soul to wake up and rise.”  Rumi  Both Presidents Reagan and Bush recognized the power of Michael’s ambassadorship around the world.  But, many have yet to discover the affect he had on global relations…his influence, both past and present.  His universal messages speak tohumanity all humankind, about all humankind, for all humankind, dispelling the plague of jealousy and hatred.  Within our grasp, within our sight, we set Michael’s dreams alight.

As we revisit the wealth of research available to us, one thing becomes clear…unlike the plethora of flip flop dished out to us by a diseased media…the scope of Michael’s work remained unchanged, his message cherished…recanting unnecessary.

WINNER:  MICHAEL JACKSONbliss seven

Michael Jackson never chose the comfort of a failed role.  With a pulsating energy that infuses all life, chosen by God as a receptacle of grace, he believed in the curative powers of love.  The electricity of his talent provided a prism through which we view ourselves.  When Natalie Barney said, “Sensuality, wanting a religion, invented love,” her words aptly described Michael Jackson.  Echoing our origins, with a marvelous power that embraced the forming of bonds creating attachment one to another, he defined for us everyday epiphanies.  Passion became a person.  Evidence of things unseen proved substance for our hopes…with dreams never deferred nor denied.  “A ship is always safe at shore, but that is not what it’s built for,”  Einstein’s words apply to Michael’s show that never ends, with a bravery speaking out and taking the heat.  An artist’s job is to captivate us for however long our attention is held.  But, that is not the complete measure of the Michael Jackson experience.  Jung tells us that creative minds play with what they love.  Schreiner asks into how little space can a human soul be crushed?  With overwhelming force, Michael Jackson showed us the things we can do.  With frailties, flaws and foibles, we stand against the all right threefault line that seeks to guarantee our failure, drawn into Michael’s radiant light, we are loved into full being.  Each day we resist captivity with awakened powers.  “Faith is the centerpiece of a connected life.  It allows us to live by the grace of invisible strands.  It is a belief in a wisdom superior to our own.  Faith becomes a teacher in the absence of fact.”  Terry Tempest Williams explains our spirit of revolt.  Surviving means being born over and over again.  Through Michael we reach for something better.  Claiming the events of his life, peeling away the layers of complicated artistry, we join him in servicealight four at a loftier level.

“Michael had a unique place in the world.  He not only did good, but taught others how to do the same.  Michael wanted to help people see the problems that are destroying our world.  That’s what he was about and what his upcoming shows were about.  He was trying to teach through lyrics, video, and performance.  He wanted to use every part of himself to show us what we are capable of becoming.  His goal was to demonstrate to people that if we all just try to make our world a better place, it will be.   Michael did charity work all of his life…since we first started performing as the ability fourJackson 5.  He quickly learned talent alone means nothing.  It’s what you do with it that really matters.  What are you doing to make things better for other people?  In grasping this, Michael found his purpose…entertain and educate at the same time.  Michael grew to understand why the world is in the state it is.  He would ask WHY, but not get trapped in trying to find reasons for each and every problem.  His aim was finding SOLUTIONS.  His message was about SOLUTIONS.  Michael’s day-to-day thought process was:  How do I make the world a better place.  He dedicated his existence to responding to this question and to giving voice to those who can’t speak for themselves.  If someone is hungry, give them food…but also help them become self-sufficient.  Michael taught us when you do good you start with an individual, then move onto a family, a neighborhood, a village, a nation.”

Jermaine JacksonAWE FORTY TWO

Innovation is enormously liberating.  Michael’s capacity for a challenge was limitless.  Scheduled only by destiny, his beating pulse echoed around the globe.  As one who when seeing a burning building, runs into the fire to rescue others, Michael’s artistic catalog defines the 80/20 rule…we of the 80 stand up for the 20.  His work excites us, moves us to tears, makes the blood rush to our heads…our souls sigh.  Like no other artist before or since, his mark on the world of entertainment introduced new language to the conversation.  We are captivated, instructed, inspired, empowered.art only seven

“Nowhere will his contribution be more obvious and his influence more strongly felt than in the world of dance.  No choreographer of the last 30 years has been unaware of Jackson’s achievement.  He rewrote the vocabulary of dance for everyone, from kids competing in talent shows to royal ballets of Europe.  If the dance establishment did not often acknowledge his influence, it was because there was no need.  His shapes, his moves were everywhere.  Nijinsky and Nureyev also died young.  They, too, were transcendent dancing boys, but chose to interpret the choreography supplied to them.  By contrast, Michael Jackson’s art was astonishingly innovative.  No one could dance like him until he showed them how…and then, they were never as good as he was.  His concept of the dance was utterly 20th century, extravagantly multi-dimensional.  Nijinsky may have been the greatest Spectre de la Rose, Nureyev, the greatest Corsair, but these 2 candles pale in the light of Jackson’s blazing star.  The surprise is not that we have lost him, but that we ever had him at all.”

Germaine Greer  Writer and Art Criticaccept fourteen

In a world that is often a part of the dumbing down, cut and paste cycles of the day, Michael Jackson appeals to our intelligence.  Our consciences grow under his tutorials of love.  Never accepting a “duck and cover” mentality, he told truth to power.  Undeterred by greed and bullying agenda, understanding that the world is a dangerous and unpredictable place…knowing that he must lead, he warned us against feeding the hand that bites us…those who create the crisis of the hour.  His values, what he devoutly believed in, didn’t shift with threatening winds.  His professional ethics, his intensely driven work, his pioneering spirit in all levels of artistry, and his fierce belief in what we can achieve together, provide continuous threads of revelation…pivotal to all.for michael

“I think he was an angel sent to us, and I think we might have to reflect on how well we took care of him.  People say that the people around him were bad and they didn’t do right by him…but, I think it’s a collective too, because I can’t remember the last time or any other artist who attracted so much energy and projected that much power…that was that creative and affected so many people…was such a diplomat for America and such a champion of the American culture and African-American people worldwide.  People wanted to move to America because of Michael Jackson.  Industry changed, the music industry changed due to Michael Jackson.  That is a gift to us…and, I’m concerned that maybe the Good Lord may not send another one, because we didn’t take good care of Michael.”

Wesley Snipesadore eighteen

“Everything is made of the past, even the future.”  Natalie Barney’s words ring in our ears.  Destiny was revealed in one that was born to win, one who made the invisible visible.  We are prompted to ponder the possibilities in our own glorious moments.  Michael taught us that there are moral imperatives:  abolish discrimination in our hearts and minds, the truth is our salvation, without faith we are lost, LOVE is the answer.

Holding us together with both hands, Michael Jackson is our window, opening to the fresh air of possibilities we never imagined.  Living life out loud, his light could not be denied in this difficult world, for he embraced injury and turned it into stellar art.  When lost in Michael’s eyes, our vision is made more acute, our empathy for the vulnerable defined.

~MICHAEL JACKSON  a benevolent influence who encourages growth, rather than controlling it~apple four

We write to tell the truth, possessing the miracle of  knowing.  Michael’s stories surround us for we have made the conscious choice to understand the greater truth that stands behind his art.  At the center are these tenets:  God chose Michael to give all he had  to show the world how to love ~God chose Michael to lead us to do the same.  With his perspective, guidance and velocity, we hear what we need to hear and say what we need to say.  An energy never overdrawn, Michael sings and dances across the planet for a higher purpose, rekindling inner lights which produce miraculous results.  His music, performance, image and life choices are on another level of self-expression which reaches inward for answers.  There is no ego in it, for ego hates being channeled, wanting to take credit, ill-defining rather than defining.apple thirteen

Everything is important until it isn’t.  When Michael’s truths are known to an entire world, every foe vanquished and, Michael no longer being punished for things he didn’t do…our thoughts of yesterday fuel our hopes for tomorrow.

“If the real story were actually released into the culture…the fans would have some hope.  If the whole sorry mess were exposed for what it was and the world was truly informed about the truth of this story of Michael, and an acknowledgment was made of the damage, the fans could begin normal grieving.  And eventually they would heal.”

We have learned that adversity allows stories to resonate.  We have seen that there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. (MLK)  Each day, we accept the challenge to stop the ignorance in our defense of Michael Jackson’s life and legacy, each of us turning on lights in darkened rooms.  Blessed with a burden that is equal in beauty and blessing, we witness for a man who saw the world the way it could be, taking on authority, with  complete understanding that nothing strengthens authority so much as silence. (Leonardo DaVinci)   With his heroic heart, he sought, he found, never to yield.

Our journey is both visceral and academic.  We accumulate knowledge.  With understanding comes a perceptive awareness leading us toward enlightenment.  It is complicated in the extreme, yet simple in design:  We witness.  We love.  We share. Life can neither be ennobled or enriched by hatred or revenge. (RFK)  This is not about revenge toward those whose bad ideas sink under their own weight…whose false nightmare scenarios die with the shame of betrayal.  We accept that many remain steadfast in their determination to discredit all that Michael achieved.  Michael’s artistry, his life choices, his business acumen, his musical and creative genius are unequivocal.  There is no one like him.  There never will be.  Michael’s art, like an invisible tissue, wraps itself around us.  We live it with him.  It stays within us.

Life is paradoxical.  Feeling the loss of someone we love more than ourselves juxtaposed with a sense of power that comes from knowledge, we are steadfast.  There are days when it is more difficult to repel the negativity found in the words:  Life is a betrayal.  Clearly, we see betrayal when Michael’s wishes are ignored, his visionary business acumen thwarted, his life story twisted and turned for profit, even to include his beloved pets, his profound desire to reach out to those suffering from violence turned into a comedy, with a white man in the leading role.  Some may say we live with alight threefalse hope…that respect and the dignity of his character, lived each day on a world stage, will never be presented honestly to the world.  Is it possible to have a hero without a villain?  Truly, Michael was blessed with more than his share of adversaries.  They live and breathe yet today, many cloaked in the word:  Friend.  And then, we are gifted the Off The Wall Documentary…and, we feel the glow.asap four

Michael told us that it is how the story ends that is important.  In Wayne Dyers’ words:  Be strong by bending, keeping radical humility as we see everything as miraculous.  Our miracle lies in witnessing with amplified memories.  Our Maestro leads the way.  Bonded together, engraved in our hearts, we face what scares us…we dance and sing, we paint and write…transparent in claiming the glory for Michael.  For, in doing that…the glow illuminates the world.

“In 2002, a woman named Marjorie, who was receiving chemotherapy treatment at the time, was waiting in Pasadena for the American Bandstand 50th Anniversary taping.  A gathering of fans was very fortunate to be very close to Michael for some moments.  He accepted the artwork Marjorie had made for him and then, to her surprise, he reached out and pulled her into a tight hug and whispered, ‘You should have stayed home.  You look very sick.’  This is but one example of the caring gestures so many received.  How many celebrities would notice and care and hold her in their arms without receiving word about her condition?  But then, Michael had seen enough sick and dying children in his life to know what someone in the midst of chemo looks like.  And, he cared.”

GLOW…an incandescent portal

~Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive~

Hafizglow fourteen

“That’s a Glowing Soul when you can just listen and feel the words shine into minds and hearts.  It’s what I find about Michael’s music and lyrics…they glow because they come straight from the heart.  We can feel it when it happens.  Glow cannot be made…it creates itself because it comes from the right place deep within a true loving and kind soul.”

Inge  Author of EMBRACEABLE MEGLOW TWELVE

“When Michael was on stage, he was total energy…so much energy…well, did you know, he glowed.”  Orianthi  “So, it is true what Orianthi said about him glowing.  He glowed.  He could light up a room, a stage, an arena.  You could be standing in a room alone and with no sound, he would enter, and the feeling in the room changed.  You could just feel him.  You could have your back turned to him and you knew he was there, with no words.  He lit up the room.  I pictured Michael and his beautiful face and I know my eyes were wide open as I blurted out…OH, MY GOD!  HOW CAN A PERSON DO THAT!  Only God could have done that to Michael.”

Michael Bushart of

Believing that past is prologue, we have come to a place where each lustrous soliloquy Michael uttered has opened a portal, leading us to something that is bigger than ourselves.  “There is only one way to avoid criticism:  Do nothing.  Say nothing. Be nothing.” (Aristotle)  Michael chose to be SOMETHINGWe have been tasked to do the same.  Every time he was hit, he stood back up again.  So they hit him harder.  Michael defines the Standing Man. (Bridge of Spies)  And in standing, the waves of thought in his head gain power as they move to our shores.  “Conformity is like a blanket that leaves your feet cold.” (Dead Poets’ Society)  Instead, Michael lived deliberately, strikingGLOW SIX out to find new ways to reinvent our world toward one end:  Heal the suffering.  There is great difficulty in maintaining strong beliefs in the face of conformity.  Swimming upstream, Michael stirred status quo waters.  Rarely passing open windows, always creating new paths, Michael saw no accidents, only opportunities and potential.  Michael never fled the battle field, making love a weapon against any evil.  The heat from the glow of his actions has created a Love Movement unparalleled, compelling us to realize our strengths as we become the people he envisioned us to be.GLOW EIGHT

The strength of Michael’s glow is our saving grace.  When first the warmth of his light wraps itself around us, we are unable to live another day without him.  We need his heat, feeling alive with beauty, passion and love.  With this light of knowledge, we search for the verse we will add to this glorious Michael Jackson Symphony of Hearts.  Our union arises from a common purpose, singular interests, and devoted service.

~Nothing is impossible~GLOW TEN

~Dreams really do come true~

“Love, Work!  Work, Love!”

Resplendent, emitting visual light, filled with emotion, aglow with purpose, Michael invites us to seize each day, every opportunity, as we feel his imposing appearance just up ahead.  Armed with total commitment, we sing and dance with glee, research and gather knowledge to educate the world, offer respect and tribute for one who has earned it unconditionally.  We turn to Michael’s artistry when facing life’s hardships.  We paint, draw, play, write, share loving and life-saving memories, bestow beauty at Michael’s resting place.  Asking the question:  WHAT MORE CAN I GIVE…we turn our energies and gifts to continuing Michael’s work in rescuing children from poverty and hunger.  We bring to reality Michael’s dreams of homes for children, education for their minds and, showing them our unconditional love.  We search the GLOW SEVENworld for causes that Michael believed in…and then, with devotion, try to make each one  a reality.  With hearts beating as one, we defend Michael’s life and legacy, seeking justice.  This is the nature of our work.  We can because we know the truth.  With determination, we will keep asking the same questions until we get the answers we are looking for…and then, we will say Thank You! (Thank you, Beloved Gene and Judy)

The global impact of Michael Jackson is unparalleled with a LOVE MOVEMENT like no GLOW SIXTEENother.  His Glow is felt by hundreds of millions of people spanning the planet…every age, color, race and culture.  His history is prelude to a better world for today.  He has enlightened us, empowered our days, filling our minds with dreams.  In times of crisis, character is defined.  We understand what the definition is…we are the storytellers.

“Prince, I wish for you to learn about perseverance and confidence and the true meaning of success…which is LOVE.

For Prince

How does one throw dance into the lives of multitudes?  How does one bring curve to the straight lines that cripple so many?  How does one become a tangible part of the lives of people from different cultures, all ages and religions and colors?  How does one inspire seeds to unfold into flowers?  There is around Michael Jackson a light which radiates delicious opportunity, bringing personal human stories to the big stage with textures that translate into pure soul.  His musical and visual landscapes have left so many eager vessels, ready to receive and share what he has bequeathed to the world.  The good in his actions lasts.  We are magnetically drawn, as the messages of God areart only two revealed.  Michael did not dream on a budget.  Although many, trapped in their imaginations with no way out, held onto the “candle-snuffing word just” (Finding Neverland), Michael spread his wings and taught us how to fly.  It was never just an empty promise or illusion.  ~What you believe you become~ No matter the volume of those who “enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought” (JFK), we have become addicted to the light, understanding that the deeper the feeling, the greater the pain.art only seven

“Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their peers, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society.  Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.  Yet, it is the one essential vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.”

Robert Kennedy

Michael Jackson’s spiritual health often was shown in his capacity for enthusiasm.  As he spoke to Prince, he helped his young son realize the value of confidence and perseverance.  Along with his three children, we all feel Michael watching over our dreams, his glowing light leading from the back, as all good leaders do. Our fight to defend Michael Jackson is not over because we live in a world which often reflects Eckhart Tolle’s words:  “There’s a huge amount of suffering that is generated not by the actual challenges of life, but by the fictitious problems the mind generates.”

~I will always be Peter Pan in my heart~Michael Jacksonart only four

Michael’s irrepressible youth powered a light, enveloping him, and electrifying ours.  Genuine and of pure intent, we see the gateway standing wide open.  As we look through, the paths ahead provide the realities of suffering and pain, the magnificence of imagination and wonderment, the tapestry of our unique gifts, opportunities to reach our potential…and the blueprint for all:  LOVE.

There was a time when I was alone

Nowhere to go and no place to call home

My only friend was the man in the moon

And even sometimes he would go away too

Then one night, as I closed my eyes

I saw a shadow flying high

He came to me with the sweetest smile

Told me he wanted to talk awhile

He said, “Peter Pan-that’s what they call me.

I promise that you’ll never be lonely.”

And ever since that day…

I am a lost boy from Neverland

Usually hanging out with Peter Pan

And when we’re bored we play in the woods

Always on the run from Captain Hook

“Run, run, lost boy,” they say to me

“Away from all reality.”art only twelve

Neverland is a home to lost boys like me

And lost boys like me are free.

He sprinkled me in pixie dust and told me to believe

Believe in him and believe in me.

Together we will fly away in a cloud of green

To your beautiful destiny

As we soared above the town that never loved me

I realized I finally had a family.

Soon enough we reached Neverland

Peacefully, my feet hit the sand

And ever since that day…

Today’s world can feel out of control with the loudness of closed-minded people whose mouths are always open, thinking that value comes by turning up the volume.  They have yet to learn that when you judge another you do not define them, you define yourself.  If we allow the twisting of reality to overtake us, we are faced with a kind of adore nineteenbondage, subjecting us to external forces that, if allowed, enslave.  Our activities are hampered to the point of confinement, creativity stolen.  And so we ask, are there treasures in these struggles?  How can we break free?  Who will come to our rescue?  Do we abandon all hope and surrender? 

Yet again we have been tasked with choosing counter strategies, as a disrespectful andadore seventeen untrue story enters breaking news cut and paste headlines.  With a false story portraying Michael’s movements after 9/11, and the casting of a white actor, we find ourselves once again asking…what sort of a world is this?  Will we find our greatness in the courage to overcome yet another obstacle in our efforts to preserve and protect his life and legacy.  Wayne Dyer said that what comes out of you when you are squeezed is what is inside of you.

“The more I’ve studied Michael Jackson and his work, the more convinced I am that he was a man of tremendous courage and deep psychological insight, fiercely committed to social change, wryly funny even during the most difficult times, and an artist to the very core of his being.  He was everything in terms of art, and the transformative power of art.  We have no unmediated access to the world, we can only access the world through our senses and perceptions, and art has the ability to challenge and change those adore eighteenperceptions.  That is a tremendous power and Michael Jackson understood that better than any other artist of his time.  He developed an artistic response that challenges our most fundamental beliefs about race and identity, and has changed us and our culture in ways we have not yet begun to measure.  He developed an artistic response that shakes the foundations of perception itself, and challenges some of our basic assumptions about how we see, interpret, and make sense of the world. That is the work of a powerful artist. adore fourteen

“To me, Michael Jackson embodies passion, energy, mystery, compassion, complexity, brilliance, creativity, wonder, tragedy and love.  His art wasn’t meant to only entertain (though that was part of it).  He aimed broader and deeper than most artists.  His artistic legacy to me has to do with how he tried to use his art to re-imagine the world…and, how he fused and stretched and reinvented so many forms to that end.”

The range of Michael’s genius includes musical composition and songwriting,  vocal landscape, rhythm mastery, poetry, prose, original dance and choreography, performance and visionary and creative storytelling, humanitarian outreach and Utopian blueprint.  His fertile mind did not grasp defeat, but rather saw opportunity and potential in people who could achieve this better world.  He guides us with his God-given gifts, chosen for a single purpose…to show the world how to love.as is two 

When we listen to his music, we find the loved stored there.  When we watch his performances, we find the love stored there.  When we read his words, we find the love stored there.  When we watch his storytelling through dance and short film, we find the love stored there.  When we see him sit on the floors of orphanages and hospitals all over the world, we find the love stored there.  When we watch him with children, we find the love stored there.  When we see him knocked down and watch him get back up again, the love is stored there.  When we visit Neverland and see a Utopian world created for all, we find the love stored there.as is

“Michael wanted to revolutionize the way tours were being done.  He was always thinking like a great producer, too.  He was telling us we needed to design a way to maximize the audience that could see him with less travel time for him and the company.  So, he proposed setting up the show for 2 or 3 months in a single location, make that portal, as opposed to being on a plane, jumping from city to city twice a week.  Just as he did on the History Tour, when we went to Northern Africa.  The idea was to get up in a region that was struggling and could really benefit economically from having us there.  Everything Michael did came from a place of love and commitment to do good.  That’s the way he was with us working on the show.  You felt like you were as lovebeing nurtured, constantly stimulated and encouraged to come up with the best ideas in a collective situation.  And that’s where his art was coming from.  His concept was not just to make a great song you could dance to.  His way was to reel you in and get your attention so then you’d get the deep message.  That was the science to it.  That’s why his music transcended generations, appealed to children and older people…everyone.”

Travis Payne  Michael Jackson’s This Is It Tour Plans

“When I was a little boy, he was my hero.  When I was a young man, he was my sanity,  taking me away from the pain of life and filling my heart with joy and wonder.  When I was 13, I saw  him live in concert and from the second he arrived on stage, I knew what I was going to do for the rest of my life.  It was September 1987, and I have to this day never seen anything more extraordinary.  To this day, I have never seen a reaction from anoited fouran audience like the one he received.  I’ve never seen magic and glitter through the air and witnessed that electricity start up hearts the way he did that night.  And now, I’m certain the world never again will.  Thank you, Michael Jackson, on behalf of the dreamers of the world.  The world is a duller place without you.  I’m privileged to have lived in the same lifetime to witness even a moment of your glory.”

It all started in Michael’s heart, this human fusion between cultures, defining an understanding that we are all the same.  Like spores in the wind, music creates our landing pad.  Instead of colliding themes, we embrace a world of mutual respect.   Travel allows no room for bigotry, prejudice unable to survive in an enlightened world.  With genius comes a nonconformist foundation, creating a reality infinitely better because normal becomes obsolete.  Replacing what had heretofore been normal, Michael showed us a Utopia where the goodness of mankind rises out of unconditional love. Challenging the status quo, he believed the wrong shall fail, the right prevail.  “Michael had a gravitating force to help us realize ourselves in a beautiful way, his way.”  (The Love Connection)  For those who listen, the earth has music to share.  For those who listen, Michael’s music takes us home…to who we are, to who we should be, to our hearts.

Michael Jackson…lines written on the underside of a handcrafted table at Neverland.

Believing that dreams do come true…believing that miracles do happen…believing that music sets us free…seeing art in everything…being inspired by nature, by play, by children…Michael’s artistry must be loved to be known.  MICHAEL JACKSON IS ART INCARNATE.  With that comes the understanding that everything he touched flowed from a heart that knew no limitations, and, came from a higher source.ANOITED EIGHT

“I simply believe.  I believe in the Bible and I get down on my knees every night and thank God and ask Him to lead the way.”  Michael Jackson

“Michael was precious, kind, humble.  He carried a light that shined so bright.  His music was a gift to the world and that is why he was brought here.  I was blessed to have known Michael.”  Joanelle Romero mother of Sage Galesi…Black or Whiteanoited five

 Michael Jackson’s schooling has no end.  Potent, multisensory…he is an artist who can bring down the stars.  In every detail lives his spirit seen through the eyes of a child…not childish, for Michael tackles every part of the human condition…but, human suffering and pain addressed with the innocence of pure and unconditional love.  He deals in universal truths…innovating paths, never following trails of the status quo.  As a historian, he has left behind a massive archive.

~Rock & Roll changed the world~

~Rhythm & Blues changed our hearts~

~Michael Jackson changed everything~

Without limitation or condition, we are here to make sure that the world knows more and more about the genius that is Michael Jackson.  Believing in dreams and miracles, we use our diverse talents and creative energies not only to bury lies and myth, but to share an artful life, whose legacy offers the blueprint for the world’s healing.   Michael alight fourwas chosen to bring light to the world.  We have been chosen to reflect that light to all who have been blinded.  This commitment propels itself forward each day with new truths which we record for all who choose to learn.

Throughout my life I have only tried to help thousands upon thousands of children to live happy lives.  It brings tears to my eyes when I see any child who suffers.  Don’t treat me like a criminal, because I am INNOCENT.”  Michael Jackson

“I love them so much.  They’re my children, too.  I remember we were in Australia and we were in this children-with-cancer ward…I started giving out toys…I’ll never forget this, one boy who was like eleven, when I went to his bed he said, ‘It’s amazing how just seeing you, I feel so much better.  I really do!’  I said, ‘Well, that’s so sweet!’  That’s what he said, and I have never forgotten it.  It’s amazing, and that’s what we are supposed to do.”  Michael Jackson

Michael Jacksonabout twelve

Of late, we have been subjected to a world pointing out violence and devastation, the paint still wet on a portrait of human suffering.  Many voices urge us toward separatism with a distrust of those whose path winds differently from ours.  Seeing into the heart of darkness is both horrifying and seductive, for it creates in it a fear which overtakes us with hopelessness and distrust…putting us in a constant state of great distress.  How contagious hatred can be.  Has hell taken the place of paradise?

~Our problems are manmade

~They can be solved by manactual two

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

When coming face to face with tales of madness, our answers must be drawn from the light.  This light shapes our way of seeing, focusing not on ourselves, but on others.  It shines on those outcast by circumstance, molding us into peaceful warriors…without limitations or condition…whose spirits never die.

“In the stillness  of the quiet, if we listen, we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair.”

Howard Thurmanabout three

“Today, we stand together all around the world, joined in a common purpose, to remake the planet into a haven of joy and understanding and goodness.  No one should have to suffer, especially our children.  This time we must succeed.  This is for the children of the world.”

“What we need to learn from children isn’t childish.  Being with them connects us to the deeper wisdom of life which is ever present and only asks to be lived.  They know the solutions that lie waiting to be recognized in our own hearts.”

Michael Jacksonabout fourteen

In Rumi’s words: ~Not only the thirsty seek the water, the water as well seeks the thirsty~  Few have the gifts Michael Jackson possessed, and few have been chosen to cause a love moment of gargantuan size, encompassing the entire planet…to SAVE the planet.   Wisdom and solutions are to be found in the profound simplicity of a child’s heart.

“For without laughter, without joy, without smiles, without happiness, without magic…there’d be no children.

Their souls are the universe.  See it sparkle through their eyes and know we’re all constellations connected in the same, great big world of love.actual four

Love that exudes through the pores of children all over the world, ready to hug, kiss, talk to, laugh and comfort anyone and everyone!  To them, everyone deserves that!  There are no limitations and conditions to their heart.

Oh, we can learn so much from children!”

Ashley Sullivan

Khalil Gibran tells us that ~The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom, but rather, leads to the threshold of your mind~  Michael Jackson has led us as the most powerful teacher of our time, for he touches every age, every race, every culture, every religion.  Through his artistry and his mantra of What do you need and how can I help…all is revealed:about seven

~Now be silent.  Let the One who creates the words speak~ 

~He made the door

~He made the lock

~He also made the key

Rumi

I believe that Nelson Mandela was correct when he said…History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children.

In the light of morning, in the middle of the night, when swimming in doubt or drowning in pain, in the joy of a giggle, when faith is clouded, when a need for escape overtakes us, when dancing is the only thing that will help, when singing at the top of our voices empowers…we find our sanctuary in MICHAEL JACKSON.  He shows us the changes that need to be made…turning random acts of kindness into INTENTIONAL ACTS OF KINDNESS.

Our hearts and minds have been touched profoundly this month.  Two treasures revealed…Greg Gorman’s photograph of Michael the Dancer, deep in creative thought…and, the exquisite parable written by Brenda Jenkyns with the magnificent Siren and her beautiful paintings.  These treasures offer hours of study and layers of learning, true to Michael Jackson Excellence…giving blood and soul to the work.

“The Maestro devoted his life to giving all of himself to the world.  Eventually, the seventh childtime came when he chose to close his eyes for the last time and melt into the melody again, in the form of pure love.  At that instant, an exquisite glow radiated out across the land, kindling Sparks of Creation within the hearts of people everywhere. The people looked at each other in a new way, and saw  that there were no differences between them.  The Knowledge of Oneness shone away thoughts of separation.  They chose to devote their lives to becoming their true selves, inspired by the Maestro.  They did this by expressing their creativity, and by loving one another as he had loved them.  Many who hadn’t known the Maestro in life felt their hearts open, and began to remember the Oneness that had been so long forgotten.  The land was filled with artists, dancers, writers, bakers, teachers, healers and endless other expressions of the soul.  The Dance of Life that the Maestro had  demonstrated became their Truth.  They were wrapped in His Beloved arms once again. “

Brenda Jenkyns and Siren

The 7th Child is dedicated FOR MICHAEL, OUR MAESTRO.  It is a masterpiece of word and picture…a parable offering greater wisdom with each visit.

Greg Gorman’s photograph offers layers of discussion and has garnered many ABOUT TWENTYviewpoints.  For me, it has been a pictorial definition of Siren’s words:  Heaven hath no beauty greater than this.  It has haunted my dreams, setting me aright with a key to rekindling my creativity.  After a month of quiet at the page, both The 7th Child and the Gorman photograph have inspired me to new words.  Finding REFUGE in Michael’s artistry and in the artistry of those inspired by him, such sanctuary has given new blood pulsing through my veins…expressions of my soul…finding my true self.about ten

“They have painted him to us in a terrible way.  They have destroyed him.  They have presented this man as if he were a monster, telling us lie after lie.  Do you know why?  Because of envy.  Because Michael Jackson was a man who dedicated his life to good, for charity, and to spread love through his music.  You have to get to know things.  We must listen to those who lived with him.  You have to read what he wrote.  You have to see the facts…foundations which he founded, the money he gave to charity to build structures to care for people in need…his presence in the first person.”alove five

~Many countries pay tribute to and remember their warriors fallen in battle.  Michael Jackson was a warrior of a different kind, who faced conflict and adversity in his own life and fought his battles with LOVE.   He knew that not only personal conflicts, but also those between nations, could be healed if we all tried to understand and love each other more.  Sadly, the world still isn’t listening.   But let us always remember, and give thanks, that Michael tried so hard to make it happen~  MJLalove three

“WHAT MICHAEL JACKSON DID WAS HE ALLOWED US, THROUGH HIS VOICE AND HIS INSTRUMENT, TO SEE A GLIMPSE OF THE HEAVEN THAT HE HIMSELF WAS DENIED.  THAT SACRIFICE WAS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE OF REDEMPTION THAT HE GAVE TO US.”  Michael Eric Dysonalove seven

Redemption is the ultimate deliverance from sins and consequences by means of a sacrifice.

It takes both time and spirit to reach understanding fully.  As Rumi said, we feel quietly drawn by the deeper pull of what we truly love.  Reaching the point where our understanding reveals a human being who was designed for giving… with a growing cast of characters, Michael’s timeline underscores our own lives.  The fight is just getting started as we, in mass, come to the rescue.  It is THE MICHAEL JACKSON MOVEMENT…a legacy of protection.

~It starts in this room, and goes all over the world~

Our ritual of love is reborn over and over again as Michael’s artistry binds us together.  We are witnessing a changing landscape.  Education is replacing “prejudice is ignorance” with what some call citizen journalism.  Its universal appeal has infused us with purpose and design, defining who we are by how we live.  Telling the truth, but being painted a liar, is no longer acceptable.  Using words, creating with paint, singingalove thirteen and dancing, we tell our stories, we share our research, we come together from all over the world, finally and completely erasing myth, with our refusal to believe it is never-ending.  Michael Jackson has revealed the secrets of life to us…passionate and persevering, we speak for him.  The historical collection grows, link by link, stronger everyday.  Steering through both shallow and deep waters, our mission is to PAY MICHAEL FORWARD for future generations, seeking justice, and attempting to continue Michael’s charitable works throughout the world.  Years of experience have shown that delivering the truth is in our hands.alove two

~The reality of Michael Jackson’s humanity…the implications and inferences of his art are so monumentally and magnificently global that nothing American television could do to besmirch his character could ever, if you will, deny the legitimate genius that he represents…and, America has responded, as indeed has the globe~alove fourteen

Michael Eric Dyson

“He was the consummate performer, the ultimate showman, the creator of the biggest-selling album of all time…who 3 decades ago crashed through racial barriers on the music charts, ushered in the music video age, and remade the pop music landscape.” New York Times November 2012

He taught me so many things.  He taught me about loving animals, vegetarianism, animal rights, environmental issues, caring about your fans, how to treat your fans-in fact, that the moment you meet your fans may just be a fleeting moment for you, and sometimes you’re in the middle of things you’ve got to take time for, but to them…they’re going to remember this moment for the rest of their lives…how important it is for that exchange and how to treat them.  He was the big brother I never had, honestly.  Thealove fact that when I did get arrested for drug possession in 1990, even though his image was squeaky clean and by all rights he could have stepped aside and moved me back, he didn’t.  He called me and I got that message on my answering machine which said, ‘Hi, Corey.  It’s Michael.  Is everything OK?  Call me if you need me.’  He was my friend.  He was supportive…and, thank God for that.  That really showed me the value alove eighteenof what type of person he was.”  Corey Feldman

“When Michael was in London in 2005, Paris saw a whole row of balloons in the lobby of a hotel.  She wanted one and hotel staff ran around trying to find scissors to cut her one.  Michael stopped them and said to Paris, ‘I’m sorry, Paris, you cannot have one.  They are not here for us.  They’re for charity.  I love you, but, just because you are my daughter does not mean you can have whatever you like.’  She cried and the hotel staff went to get a balloon.  Michael said, ‘She is my kid.  I’ve told her no, and she needs to understand.”  Karen Faye Make-up Artistalove fifteen

“You know, there was one moment.  I was playing a piano and he was standing next to me.  All of a sudden, he stretched his hands, looking upward.  It seemed to me that it was very important to him.  That’s why I left the room and switched the lights off.  After half an hour, I came back to the room.  He was whispering, ‘Thank you for my talent.  Thank you for everything I’ve got.  Thank you for all the people who love me.  Tell me what I should do and I’ll do it.’  It seemed to me that it was the moment of his communication with God.”  Seth Riggs  Vocal Coachalove eleven

Cynthia Eller

~Let us not forget…sometimes we all wonder why our life’s journey is not like we expected or wanted.  The most important lesson is, it is not what we get out of it, but what we give back.  Michael spent decades giving back and teaching the world how to love one another.  He did not boast or make public most of his charity giving because he gave from his heart.  Michael left us with an important message…HEAL THE WORLD~ LOVE THE CHILDREN~ LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  Some years have passed and we have shed many tears.  It is time to keep working on Michael’s Humanitarian Legacy~  keep healing the world, keep loving the children and loving each other.  PAY IT FORWARD WITH LOVE.  WE MISS YOU, MICHAEL~  MDFalove eight

Each day we are suspended in Michael’s endless optimism as an ambassador of good will around this world, with an influence that lives on.  The events of his life, so real, and so interwoven with ours, continue to inspire and bring hope to multitudes of people.  Refusing to accept nothing less than perfection, Michael has taught us to reach deep down inside for the potential that lives there, to truly understand the range of possibilities open to us…splendidly bright.  He is the source.  We are the messengers.

The ultimate teacher, the truth of his legacy powers the movement we share.  What we have learned completes us and we are taking over…we have the truth…this is our mission…to see it through!  THE MICHAEL JACKSON MOVEMENT!

We are looking around in the lost and found of our hearts…and, each time our eyes and ears discover a precious piece of Michael’s artistry we rush to share it.  Everywhere we go, everything we see, everywhere we look Michael is there.  Lovingly, we tend his memory.

“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”

Aldous Huxley

WE KEEP OUR LOVE AS  STRONG AS STEEL.  THAT IS HOW WE WIN!

Falling in love over and over again is truly a bonding experience.  Although frequently asking how is that justice, often having the feelings of being in a loaded, lopsided game, we adhere to facts while stoking rage as fuel.  Taking energy from Michael, we are never broken and always feel the calling noble.  Michael’s passionate dance of life defined ~Let music set you free, only then will you belong to me~ (A.L.Weber), teachingaio nine us how to think and how to dream.  With dedication and perseverance, he offered himself…vulnerable, intimate, poetry in motion.  His rays of light were transmitted, susceptible to being wounded or hurt.  Clear, crystalline, translucent, Michael’s courage to give everything defined his power as a gentle warrior…always victorious, heightening the poignancy of his expression. His life defined by it, triumphant no matter the ripples, made stronger by the weak moments.  His ability to speak to the human heart revealed an enlightened creativity which blessed us with the revelation of an understanding of our potential, and gave oxygen to our souls.  With the understanding true to who we really are, we begin within, moving toward opening our natural channels.

~Creativity blesses me~aio eight

~Creativity blesses others~

There is always mystery at the heart of Michael’s creativity, its layers seductive, calling us to more discovery as we peel them away…playing with the exultation of the possible. (Martin Buber)  Rising time and time again, Michael lifts us with a gentle strength that is defined by the most powerful force on the planet:  UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.  Ellen Johnson Sirleaf suggests that if dreams don’t scare you, then they are not big enough…Michael’s philosophy was IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO DO IT BIG, DON’T BOTHER.  Dreaming small was never an option…never settling for near enough.  Through this boundless world of imagination, Michael fills each unique vessel, pulling usmercy two deep into what we truly are.  Not afraid to reveal the pain and struggle of life, whether his own or that of others,  Michael used his voice, his compositions, his dance, his performance, his lyrics, his prose and poetry, never fearing intimacy.

~Expressing your feelings is not the same as falling apart in front of someone else-it’s being accepting and true to your heart, whatever it may say.  When you have the courage to be intimate, you know who you are, and you’re willing to let others see that.  It’s scary aiobecause you feel so vulnerable, so open to rejection.  But, without self-acceptance, the other kind of courage, the kind that heroes show in movies, seems hollow.  In spite of the risks, the courage to be honest and intimate opens the way to self-discovery.  It offers what we all want, the promise of love.~

DANCING THE DREAM  Michael Jacksonomg twelve

“Michael Jackson regularly used vulnerability to open hearts, bridge divides and create trust.  The level of transparency helped us trust him even more and trust is power.  But, Michael always used his pain to highlight the desperation in other peoples’ lives, to connect us with each other, and inspire us to take action.  On stage his expressions, tenderness, open-heartedness and childlike enthusiasm helped us to see, that under certain conditions it can be safe to express those raw and naked places in front of other people.  Those public displays of vulnerability were extremely important…they normalized vulnerability, particularly for men.  They made it okay for us to be vulnerable, too.”

Keely  RAW NAKED TRUTH

“His music had an extra layer of inexplicable magic that didn’t just make you want to dance but, actually made you believe you could fly.”

Michael has allowed us a glimpse into a Utopian world through a collective lens…the innocence of children, and the bravery of a gentle warrior.  He has assembled his Army of Love with the mandate:  MY FANS ARE ACTIVISTS.  THEY WILL DEFEND ME.  A aio fivetimeless voice of freedom, tender love and creative sensibilities, Michael leads the way.

~My Fans are the reason I continue to do what I do.  I see them as my family, my friends, my children~

Michael Jackson’s response to 9/11all right fourteen

As the world tends to break everyone, we hold onto the hope that many of us are stronger in the broken places…and, that those broken places put us in the right place.  It is God’s work, choosing for us the right place, even if we don’t know it at the time.  We don’t always receive what we are sure we want.  Instead, we are given what we need.  Often asking ourselves:  Why is that a relevant question…our interests aligned, we simply do not stop asking.  Meeting Michael Jackson…no matter what form the contact…causes a chemical reaction that is transformative and purposeful.  Our journey defines this:  KNOWING the truth and GETTING justice are not the same thing.  Our need to put things right echoes from all corners of the planet, often reminding us that we may be knocked down, but we all right fiveare not destroyed…nor will we be.  Encountering an often repeated statement in the media, “There is nothing good about this guy.”  Wolf Blitzer The Situation Room CNN July 6, 2009, not only do we use our anger, but  pity those who see depravity in normal behavior, thankful we are not inside their minds.  We are determined to change the sound bites and end the seemingly never-ending myths, hoping for a classic blowback that will show the world media agendas, justifying their cynicism as a higher calling.  How are we meant to survive it all?  The answer is clear:  We look to Michael Jackson’s life, artistry and legacy as a guide.

“If DANCING THE DREAM, MOONWALK, his life and lyrics weren’t enough to tell allright twelveall we need to know, then no book is going to change a hardened heart.”

“It’s so inspiring how Michael’s fans, friends and supporters remain inspired to care after so many years.  That is a truly great legacy that should be aspired to.”

Sarah Conley  International Elephant Foundation

This journey we find ourselves passionately devoted to is as unique as the man himself.  Students of history, we realize we can find no other human being as abused, inALL RIGHT SEVENTEEN this or any other century.  In the age of instant communication, a lie can spread around the world with the touch of a button…never to be erased.  Without accountability, there is no fear of reprimand.  Opinions become fact, agendas masked, releasing conscience from cut and paste mentality.  Those claiming to be friends, after being shown loving hospitality,  often delight in sharing…causing us to ask:  After spending time with a friend, how many of us returned home talking about their nose, alleged surgeries they might have had, the alleged parentage of their children?

“I’m a great fan of art.  I love Michelangelo.  If  I had a chance to talk to him, or read IN LOVE ELEVENabout him, I would want to know what inspired him to become who he is, the anatomy of his craftsmanship, not about who he went out with last night. That’s what’s important to me.”

Michael Jackson Oprah interview 1992

(What was Oprah’s next question:  “How much plastic surgery have you had?”)

“We are all familiar with the role of the media in the constant replay of innuendos and false claims’ nauseating proportions, while not paying attention to peace, justice, humanitarianism he was so greatly involved in.”

~Jesus said to love children and be like children, be youthful and be innocent and pure and honorable.  He was talking to his Apostles…they were fighting over who was the greatest of them all…and, Jesus said, “Whoever humbles himself like a child is the greatest among you.”  He surrounded himself with children.  That’s how I was raised to believe…to be like that…to imitate that.~

“It pains me to watch the human suffering taking place in the Gulf Region of my country.  My heart and prayers go out to every individual who has had to endure the pain and suffering caused by this tragedy.  I will be reaching out to others within the music industry to join me in helping to bring relief and hope to these resilient people who have lost everything, from the bottom of my heart, to help the victims of hurricaneALL RIGHT SIXTEEN Katrina.”  ~within 24 hours of the tragedy~ October 7, 2005

“Whilst Michael’s messages of love and tolerance supersede him, we must also remember his message of truth and resilience in standing up and fighting for what you believe in, no matter who the target and however bleak the outcome may be.  A voice for the voiceless, an answer to the lies…Long may Tabloid Junkie reign, and long may it serve as an example of a man not afraid to speak out.”

~A man who was completely innocent offered himself up for sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world.  It was a perfect act~

Mahatma GandhiPURITY SEVEN

~To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived-This is to have succeeded~

Ralph Waldo Emerson

~A truly rich person is the one who is in contact with the energy of love every second of his existence~

Paulo CoelhoPURITY THREE

~To be creative means to be in love with life.  You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little poetry to it, a little more dance to it~

Osho

~Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity~

The Prophetawesome four

I agree with Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov when he declared that the human soul needs immensity…for only in immensity can the soul be happy and feel free to breathe.  With acceptance of free will comes great responsibility, and yes, often great loss.  When we are faced with losing something we love, free will gives purpose to loss, leading us to  different choices.  Our lifeline receives its strength from one who has lived before, danced the planet, showing us that what is now proved was once only imagined.  As our paths circle back to right wrongs that have been done, we continue our instruction.  Michael Jackson believed in the power of imagination:  “An artist’s imagination is his greatest tool.  It can create a mood or feeling that people want to have, as well as transport you to a different place altogether.” MJ  Michael believed that the imagination was capable of producing miracles.  It has no limitations…everything that exists was once imagined.  Holding onto our Angelic Being, we stay aligned with our true selves.PURITY ELEVEN

Enter those who wonder: How badly do you have to break it to make it work.  Part of us wants to keep our imagination free of thoughts we do not wish to materialize.  However, we stand firm on this:  When a good man is hurt, all who would be called good must suffer with him…Euripides 

This week has brought with it yet another attempt by the media to keep myth alive in the form of a new book.  Once again, we are called upon to stand for the truth…believing that when words are both true and kind, they can change the world  (Buddha)  The truth is, there is no one else to do it.  We have been chosen by Michael to continue his wow eightLegacy.

“The human spirit  is in trouble, but he has whispered his love into many of us and we are the ones who will carry it forward.  We are responsible because we KNOW.  He is the living demonstration of everything beautiful, just, and integral…ALWAYS.”

Siren

We are taking over, we do have the truth…our mission is to see it through.  ANOTHERbeau PART OF MICHAEL…our lifeline is securely tethered, our truths firmly grounded in Michael’s own words, our imaginations free to breathe.  In loving life, Michael left behind creative and imaginative assistance for this critical time in human history, steering us in ways that keep us aligned with our moral compass, believing in magic and miracles with the power to heal…the shimmering of his soulful voice, the comet-like swirl of his dance provide the hope we need to extricate ourselves from a cynical and judgmental crawl, to take flight in dreams of unconditional love.  Those dreams are rooted in Michael Jackson Truths.  To that end…PAYING MICHAEL FORWARD  MEANS TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT.  Words matter!

THE ATV MUSIC PUBLISHING CATALOGUEPURITY NINE

“Eventually, I would buy the ATV music publishing catalogue, which included many of the great Lennon-McCartney songs.  But, most people don’t know that it was Paul who introduced me to the idea of getting involved in music publishing.  I was staying with Paul and Linda at their house in the country when Paul told me about his own involvement in music publishing.  He handed me a little book with MPL printed on the cover.  He smiled as I opened it, because he knew I was going to find the contents exciting.  It contained a list of all the songs Paul owns and he’d been buying the rights to songs for a long time.  I had never given the idea of buying songs any thought before.  When the ATV music publishing catalogue, which contains many Lennon-McCartney songs, went on sale, I decided to put in a bid.  I consider myself a musician who is incidentally a businessman, and Paul and I had both learned the hard way about business and the importance of publishing and royalties and the dignity of songwriting.  Songwriting should be  treated as the lifeblood of popular music.  The creative process doesn’t involve  time clocks or quota systems, it involves inspiration and the willingness to follow through.”

Michael Jackson  MOONWALK 1988beau two

“The merging of ATV with Sony establishes our commitment to create one of the largest music publishing ventures in the world.  We have been working on this for over a year and now with the two of us together, the sky is our only limit.”

Michael Jackson December 1995

“I want to clarify a silly rumor.  The Beatles catalog is not for sale and will never be for sale.”

Michael Jackson 2001PURITY FOUR

Michael Jackson was a businessman.  He invested in songwriters, often giving songs to Black artists who had not received anything from record companies for the songs they wrote.  Using investments is common practice for all and was a practice for Michael.  However, Michael’s LIFELINE was his unparalleled talent, his tireless work ethic, his devotion to his artistry, his unequaled imagination, and his commitment to his Fans…and yes, HIS GENIUS!

~The moonwalk is a dance I would love to take credit for, but I can’t because I have toPURITY SIX be completely honest here…these Black children in the ghettos are….they have this phenomenal rhythm of anybody on the earth.  I’m not joking.  I get a lot of ideas from watching these Black children.  They have perfect rhythm.  Just riding through Harlem in the 70’s and early 80’s, I would see these kids dancing on the street…sliding awesome threebackwards, kind of like an illusion dance, I call it.  I took a mental picture of it.  I went  into my room upstairs in Encino and I would just start doing the dance and create and perfect it.  But, it definitely started with the Black culture.  No doubt.  That’s where it comes from.”

Michael Jackson speaking with Reverend Jesse Jackson March 2005PURITY FIVE

Michael Jackson was truth personified.  He gained his fame and fortune through hard work and unparalleled talent.  He did not reach the level of King of Pop at the expense of others.

“He was a consummate performer who understood exactly how to put on a show and bring a crowd of thousands to their feet.  Technically speaking, Michael is a lighting designer’s dream.  There were no holds barred with him and even if some of his ideas seemed to come from left field, we found ways to do them.  He was the kind of artist that you could reach as far as you wanted for effects, but nothing would upstage him and it would only serve to support what he was doing.  He knew artistically what he wanted.  He was always focused on the actual presentation of the show.  He was involved technically, musically, and with every other aspect of the performance.  He wasawesome seven real.  He was thoroughly involved, but not necessarily at the beginning of something.  He waited until something was established and he would edit, comment, ask for additions…asking for them very quickly.  But, there was always a specific part of the show that was dedicated to his wanting to heal the world in whatever way that he or his music could accomplish.  I found the reaction worldwide was always the same wherever he went.  In many locations, the concert-goers may not speak a word of English, but they knew all the words to all the songs.  You would always hear them singing in unison.  It was phenomenal.  In the television concert footage from the Dangerous Tour in Bucharest, Romania, the absolute immensity of his audience was obvious.  I’ve done tours with such artists as Madonna, where we’ve had 100,000-200,000 people in stadiums.  But, this was the largest crowd I had ever seen.  I don’t know how they personally viewed him, but Michael was definitely a kind of Pied-Piper or Messiah inPURITY TEN some of their eyes.  He espoused love for everyone and I guess they really picked up on that.

In 1988, the year prior to the wall coming down in Germany, we played the Reichtag, the old Parliament.  Concerts were performed on the front grounds and you could hit the Berlin Wall with a  rock from the back door of the venue.  We raised extra lights and sound gear so something could be heard and seen on the other side.  We were told that the size of the audience listening on the street on the other side of the wall was 10 times the size of what we saw in front of us…which was a complete sell-out.  That was one of the most memorable moments that I have ever been a part of, and to be a  part of it with a Michael Jackson tour makes it even more so.awesome six

On our tour, Michael was definitely an INTERNATIONAL AMBASSADOR OF PEACE.  You cannot underestimate what Michael’s popularity was and still is overseas.  No matter where we went, and we went some places in Eastern Europe that, not too many years before, there were actually tanks in the street.  There  were people becoming quite emotional all over the world.  I am proud to have worked for a guy that you could tell everyday he was a consummate professional.  Michael Jackson worked harder than anyone else on the tour.  People see the over-simplification of his life in the media, but I know that he was a really good boss, and I know he was an incredible performer…just from my personal  experience…and, I saw a couple hundred of his shows…I CAN PROVE IT.WOW SEVEN

I believe in Warsaw there were like 400,000 people in one place.  You really don’t get a grasp of the enormity of it.  Michael was more than a singer/songwriter…he was a performer…THE IDEAL PERFORMER.  If you have never sat in a stadium of 400,000 screaming fans all waiting to see what he does next, you can’t grasp the magnitude or depth of his life and the millions of people he inspired to be great.”

A GENIUS AT WORK

~I gain strength from God.  I believe in Jehovah, God very much.  And, I gain strength from the fact that I know that I am innocent.  None of the stories are true.  They are totally fabricated.  It’s very sad and it’s very, very painful. I pray a lot and that’s how I deal with it.  I’m a strong person.  I’m a warrior and I know what is inside me.  I’m a fighter, but it’s very painful and at the end of the day, I’m still human, you know?  I’m still a human being so it does hurt very, very, very much~  Michael Jacksonawesome nine

“It was you who put your heart on the line.  It was you who stepped forward to defend someone you love.  It was you on a worldwide basis who supported me as my army, my soldiers of love.  You were always there.  You were always loyal.  I love you forever.”

Michael Jackson 45th Birthday Celebration

We breathe free in the immensity of our chosen path, using imagination to create mental images and concepts that are not actually present in the senses, but instead, limitless in scope and design…encircling the world with our collective dream:  This bond of love, against all odds, here to protect Michael Jackson’s legacy, will be paid forward… forever.
