What is staying power? Do we invent who we are by surrounding ourselves with people, color, sounds and work that offer nourishment as Sark suggests? Does our need for connectedness help us sidestep the dangers of this world? I am shaped and fashioned by what I love which has danced and sung its way deep inside my heart. Grieving loss, I have learned where my creativity lies and, that creativity numbs the ache, allowing tears to cleanse my soul…lighting a fuse within.
There are days when I am overtaken and I must accept that I will never truly get over the emptiness. But, the magic that dwells inside the journey gives energy, feeding my desire to continue. I am forever.
“In all creation, in all eternity, in all realms of your infinite being, the most wonderful thing is THAT fact! You are God. You are the ‘I AM THAT I AM.’ You are consciousness. You are the creator. This is the mystery, this is the great secret known by seers, prophets, and mystics throughout the ages. This is the truth you can never know intellectually. The important thing is that it is within you, it is your world.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer
DANCING THE DREAM
The spark that lived in Michael Jackson…that light that illuminated the world…still shines. Every action, every piece of art, every word, every minute of his life burst with color, sound and energy. Its passion was driven by pure love. That love has been passed on to masses of people through his music, his performances, his interviews, his speeches, his lyrics, his writings, his humanitarian efforts for the planet. The connections made are timeless…THEY ARE FOREVER. We love him because HE LOVED US FIRST. He gave us AWARENESS, AWAKENING AND HOPE. He used his unparalleled talents and gifts, his fame and fortune to heal the wounds of the world. Now that he is no longer with us, WE HAVE CHOSEN TO CONTINUE. Our passion rides the winds of faith. “Life is too precious and too short not to reach out and touch the people we can.” Michael’s words are indelibly printed on our collective hearts. He spoke the language of love because he knew what it meant. He gave us magical, joyful and fantastical escapism. He dropped to his knees with emotion and vulnerability before our very eyes. We sang and cried, we hugged and…we were FOREVER CHANGED. He taught us and we now know.
“My breath was taken away. Every movement that he made was perfect. He was so enjoying it and really happy. I thought to myself that he looked fantastic. Every movement was so precise and led perfectly to the next movement. It was exhilarating to watch Michael perform with complete joy. Michael knew how he wanted to present himself to the world. It was as if the magic he possessed was being channeled from the cosmos. Watching Michael dance was like watching the entire history of dance.”
“WHEN I LOOK INTO THE EYES OF MY SON, PRINCE AND MY DAUGHTER, PARIS, I SEE MIRACLES, AND I SEE BEAUTY. HAVING CHILDREN ALLOWS ME TO ENTER THIS MAGICAL AND HOLY WORLD EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY. I SEE GOD THROUGH MY CHILDREN. I SPEAK TO GOD THROUGH MY CHILDREN. I AM HUMBLED FOR THE BLESSINGS HE HAS GIVEN ME.”
I have never been more fascinated, never more committed. Traveling in Michael’s light inspires passionate creativity for those who have looked into his eyes and enter a magical and loving place…CHANGED AND CHALLENGED TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. “HE WHO FINDS HIM STAYS FOREVER WITH HIM.”
Thank you, Michael. I love you.
