“I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO HELP OUT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. JUST TO HELP ONE PERSON MEANS A LOT. IT’S A BIG STEP FORWARD.” Michael Jackson
There is a magic in winter that cannot be found in other seasons. No matter how bruised the planet may seem, winter dresses its wounds with a blanket of healing beauty. Sparkling domes are created atop open sores, and for a time, opulence visits everyone. Nature’s appeal weaves its way into our manmade world. There is no denying it. Crevices are filled, hard edges softened. For a time, everything seems equal. Those who have been gifted with Michael Jackson see the parallel here. His presence has filled divides for more than half a century. Musically, Michael is the balm that reaches into human cells, inspiring cleansing movement and sound. Into our troubled manmade world, Michael weaves his healing magic, creating an equality of spirit which blurs hard-edged boundaries. Michael’s performances enlighten our minds and generate that opulent feeling. We are all kings and queens with Michael.
I have inside of me a driving force. It fuels my days, gives birth to my dreams at night. With it, I am empowered. I have called it PAYING MICHAEL JACKSON FORWARD, a phrase I learned from another. My mission is to enlighten as many people as I can…to offer the opportunity that I have had. And, that is, to share Michael. Each time I come to the page to write an article, I have been blessed with a thought I feel is worth sharing, for I profoundly feel that the world’s healing depends on Michael’s message. Unlike any other studies I have done in my life, Michael offers his healing in so many ways…music, lyrics, dance, performance, short story, speeches, poetry, prose, articles…artistry that encompasses all. His inspiration empowers unlike any I have known. People across the globe are inspired to do more, give more, make changes to help the world’s healing.
An angel that visited my blog and wrote a lovely comment showed interest in Michael Jackson quotes. She suggested it would be helpful to have a book of his words that could be accessed easily. I thought that was a wonderful idea, something I would love to work on. Today, I am simply going to randomly share Michael’s message. To be sure, there are masses of inspiring quotes. In my experience, when Michael spoke, it was worthy of recording. But, just for today, let’s slip through some of the sparkling beauty…feel free to bundle up in your warmest clothes for we are going out into MAGICAL MICHAEL WINTER
MICHAEL’S WORDS…Reminding us of who we are and what we should be!
LOVE IS MY MESSAGE
I take this gift only to give it again.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjNg-SWnkrg
Thank you to all the FANS. You’ve given me so much, it’s allowed me to pass it on to those who need and deserve our help.
There’s a certain sense that animals and children have that gives me a certain creative juice, a certain force that later on in adulthood is kind of lost because of the conditioning that happens in the world. A great poet said once: “When I see children, I see that God has not yet given up on man.” (Tagore) The innocence of children represents to me the source of infinite creativity. That is the potential of every human being. Children are loving, they don’t gossip, they don’t complain, they’re just open-hearted. They’re ready for you. They don’t judge. They don’t see things by way of color. They’re very child-like. That’s the problem with adults, they lose that child-like quality. And that’s the inspiration that’s so needed and is so important for creating and writing songs and for a sculptor, a poet or a novelist. It’s that same kind of innocence, that same level of consciousness, that you create from. Of course. And when I’m on stage, I can’t perform if I don’t have that kind of ping pong with the crowd. You know the kind of cause and effect action, reaction. Because I play off them. They’re really feeding me and I’m just acting from their energy.
When all of life is seen as divine…everyone grows wings.
Be as humble as a child, as a baby, be kind and giving and loving, never become puffed up with pride.
Your mind is powerful enough to help you attain whatever you want.
Everyday create your History…every path you take you’re leaving your legacy.
Let’s harmonize all around the world.
Never letting fate control your soul…the heart reveals the proof like a mirror tells the truth.
The best dreams are when your eyes are wide open.
I believe in wishes and a person’s ability to make them come true. It’s something your conscious and subconscious can make a reality.
LIVE, BE, MOVE, REJOICE…YOU ARE ALIVE!
Prejudice is ignorance.
Great music and great melodies are immortal.
What you believe, you become.
Keep on reaching, do it for me.
Let us dream of tomorrow where children are nurtured and protected and nourished. Let us dream of peace and harmony and laughter. Let us dream of joy and ecstasy. Let us dream of dancing the cosmic dance. Let us renew again those dreams of promise we once made before, where we can hold our heads high and stretch our arms toward perfection. Let us dream of a tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.
If you are locked into a pattern of thinking and responding, your creativity gets blocked. You miss the freshness and magic of the moment. Learn to be innocent again and that freshness never fades.
There are people out there who don’t actively hold you back as much as they quietly work on your insecurities so that you hold yourself back.
In the end, truth always triumphs.
Wonderment and magic are things I’ve just never grown out of.
Children have no power to end wars directly or mend age-old differences. All they can do is be themselves, to shine with gratitude and joy when love is turned their way. Yet, isn’t that ultimately the greatest power.
It’s all meant to be play. Keep to your course, but dance while you do it.
A child’s mind needs the nourishment of mystery, magic, wonder and excitement. I want my work to help people rediscover the child that is hiding in them.
Neverland represents the totality of who I am.
I have only made a tiny start into Michael’s glistening snowflakes of love which blanket us with so much hope. I will continue on another day. Cuddle in their beauty and feel Michael’s love wrap around you. His inspiration will fuel us as we move in the world toward change. I love you all.
Wow! I truly adore the way you compare Michael to the magic of winter. Snow, like glitter does transform the mundane into the MAGICAL. LOVE this! Your words are empowered with your refreshing gift of prose and poetry. I could see a book from you of Michael in metaphors… so many brilliant dreams unfolding for YOU, dear Jude. As you pay him forward he also moves you forward – many, many sparkly tasks and dreams coming TRUE ahead for you. Real Magic is happening for you NOW. Thank you for sharing it with us. xoxoxox
You are truly a gift and a voice for all of us who love and understand Michael and passionate about his music, genius, and humanity. Thank you always.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! Thanks for being Jude!
That abundance of Michael’s quotes which I am willing to read and re-read again and again, to go back to them in both good and bad times of my life. They really deserve to be gathered and released as a book of wisdom. Jude, dear, I really appreciate your job to spill the diamonds of his mind in front of us once again. His invaluable teachings and advice follow my whole life through..
Such wonderful thoughts! What you write brings hin back. Thank you so much! Trurh always triumphs and runs marathons (in Michael’s words). !!
Keep to your course, but dance while you do it! That is marvelous…and something to remember, especially at this time. How I wish Michael were here….he always knew what to do an say…that would help me get through certain issues. Remembering how he used to do things, gives me hope. Everyone can benefit from his words….
I want you back, dear Michael…You were the very best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
