“Michael Jackson may be the purest talent I’ve ever seen. He’s incapable of a false moment.”
“Prince, I wish for you to learn about perseverance and confidence and the true meaning of success…which is LOVE.
And, that you can reach any goal that your heart desires. It’s totally up to you. You can be anything you want to be.
And, I love you.”
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 are 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.
“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.”
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 Jackson
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.
~Truth so ecstatic, yet so plausible at once~ academic structure, but so emotional and incredible~
Saint Teresa (Siren)
The gift of seeing Michael happens everyday…just by believing…opportunity for us all to be able to serve others, and share our unique talents. With divine light…MICHAEL’S MESSAGE IS LOVE.
~Michael, we can see your HALO…you’re everything we need and more…we’re surrounded by your embrace~ Taken from HALO by Beyonce
“You are the flash of the lightning bolt
Electrify my soul
Take me to your darkest place
The truth shall make me whole
You are the radiant light of the world
But kingdom come, Thy will be done…
Forever, and ever, Amen.

“Too often we honor swagger and bluster and wielders of force; too often we excuse those who are willing to build their own lives on the shattered dreams of others.” JFK. God comes through a person to us.(Sue) When that person is a dreamer, an inspirer, a believer, a peaceful warrior seeking to improve the lives of others, one who knows suffering and childhood pain, one who possesses a boisterous inner child…someone who truly loves from the heart…our confusion and misdirection dissolve. We are sharing a short moment in life, and we refuse to allow tragedy to be a tool for living. Instead, we gain wisdom from the light.
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
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…
~taken from Ruth B Lyrics “Lost Boy”
“Neverland represents the totality of who I am.” Michael Jackson
“Where have you taken us?”
“This is Neverland. Peter Pan lives here.”
You’re everything we need and more
It’s written all over your face
~Michael, we can see your halo~
Many years ago, I made the remark to Michael….’you know, I can see your halo!’ It was meant halfway as a joke…but also I thought it was true. He was always doing such wonderful deeds for people, children, animals and etc. When I said that, he laughed and just said that he always wanted to be the best person he could be…and do the most he cold do. AND he did just that. I was in awe of him on so many levels…and at the same time, I wanted to emulate him. One thing I always noted was his incredible patience with people…such as the musicians and dancers in his crew…He never raised his voice to ANYONE. I remembered that and seek to do the same thing with my students. Never raise your voice, always be calm..and give praise for everything that is done. (not when it isn’t deserved, of course.) Michael was a role model for me….that is for sure. He was SUCH a good person, that sometimes I felt as though I were in another world when with him. He didn’t sleep so much…I think he felt like he shouldn’t waste the time. But there were a few times when he was in my living room, and I was practicing the piano. And I heard this snoring! I looked at my sofa…and there he was, lying down and completely asleep! I kept practicing….he didn’t wake up…and when he did, I said “well, now I know what I can do to help you sleep….I will just play for you!!!” We both laughed a lot about that one. Even now when I am practicing, I always look at the sofa….in case he might possibly be there! (This is only half in jest!). The funny part of that ‘sleep story’ is that he loved classical music…(not for sleeping, but listening.) Dear Michael….you were so funny sometimes…and I miss and love you so very much!
Not an easy reading to me this time but it made the text even more valuable. Jude came up to the very sensitive theme: Michael’s God likeness.. I would say. For me he always was Godlike, in my eyes he repeated in many ways the path of Jesus, his deeds proved millions of times he’s from God’s family and his talents and abilities also say he was not just a human being like you and me. Nope. I always saw his HALO, from the start, from the very beginning, Now I see with joy and happiness that more an d more people can see his HALO. Lord guided Michael’s ways and learned him what to do and how to do it, how to reach the things he dreamed of. And we should try to do the same: listen attentively and follow. Each of us in our own ways. Jude, knowing my personal perspective on Michael I’m seriously grateful to you for lifting this subject and bringing it to the attention of many.
One year later after my previous post….I can still remember seeing his halo! He was, as I have often said a magical person! And he was also much fun to be with…..we had a wonderful time together! I miss him! Pure and simple!
I listen or watch Michael every day on my computer! It reminds me of his incredible gifts and talent! Who else could have done what he did….or accomplished. He was such a darling person, and I miss him dreadfully!
