CALMING LIGHT, STORMING DARKNESS…an immersion into pure emotion

“Truly, it is in the darkness that one finds the light.  So, when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest to us.”

Meister Eckhartforevermore

I am your joy

Your best of joy

I am the moonlight

You are the spring

Our love’s a sacred thing

You know I always will  love you

I am forever

I am the one who came

When you fell down

I was the only one around (the only one)

When things would hurt you

I am foreverultimate artist

Wasn’t it I who said that you were free

When living seemed so hard to be

When things would hurt you

I am forever

We are forever

I am your friend

Through thick and thin

We need each other

We’ll never part

Our love is from the heartamazingly wonderful nine

 We never say I don’t need you

We are forever

I am the one who said that you were free

When living seemed so hard to be

the only one

And nothing would cheer you

I am forever

Wasn’t it I who carried you around

When all the walls came tumbling  down

And things would hurt you

I am forever

We are forever.

A personality is like a rope.  When you cut it, it has many strands.  When separated, each strand reveals microscopic layers…a kind of DNA, recording every choice we have made through thick and thin.  How we use our lives determines who we are, informing our character, shrinking and expanding in proportion to our courage.  When traveling through the dark times we can discover light, which is unexpected in its nearness.  Allowing unhappiness to overtake us, doubt rules. Michael Jackson’s life embraced this wisdom in Buddha’s statement:  “The trouble is  you think you have time.”  With a profoundly joyful spirit, he lived every second of his 50 years with whole-hearted enthusiasm, allowing for precious little sleeping time, and even less time caught up in doubt…soaking life up like a sponge…never being caught lies threeup in greed, living gratefully with sincere humility.  With a sense of urgency, he channeled the most beautiful music, reflecting God in every aspect of his artistry.  It was as if he innately knew his time dancing across the planet was short.  Chosen, spiritually blessed, never waiting to be asked, he traveled the world saying:  “What do you need and how can I help?”  amazingly wonderful three His calmness surprised many for, when on stage, he turned his calming, shy demeanor into a whirling tornado…deepening the mysteries of life while transforming all who watched and listened…for no one had ever experienced such pure emotion.  When he sang, “Tell me about it!” people across the entire planet were inspired to change.  Believing that life was too short to not reach out and touch people, Michael turned the darkness in his life into spectacular light, illuminating the world.  Never believing in “sure bets,” or formulas, his answer to every problem was empowering people, tuning into energies, giving birth to a new reality… LOVE…pure and unconditional.  As bullying and cruelty, lies and greed poured down upon him with a blackness of evil, Michael breathed out more light.  His strength came from God and the masses of Fans who understood Michael’s loyalty to them and gave that loyalty back in full of a kind three While the world of politics and media turned 9/11 into war, Michael immediately used the destruction and violence for fuel to create and reach out to the victims.  Believing that hate never dispels hate, only love can dispel hate, once again, Michael bravely stood up against lingering warlike feelings, and spoke out against violence…something he had done his entire career.  This time, he wrote a spectacular anti-war song, “WE’VE HAD ENOUGH.”  His storytelling describes both a scene where a child is asking why the police shot his daddy when he had no gun and, another child in a foreign land asking why his mama was killed by soldiers when all she did was try to raise her kids.  “WHAT DID THESE SOLDIERS COME HERE FOR…IF THEY’RE FOR PEACE, WHY IS THERE WAR?”  Over and over again Michael says, “DID GOD SAY THAT THEY COULD DECIDE, WHO WOULD LIVE AND WHO WOULD DIE?”

Only God could decideamazingly wonderful six

Who would live and  who would die

There’s nothing that can’t be done


They’ve gotta hear it from me

They’ve gotta hear it from you

They’ve gotta hear it from us

We can’t take it


Michael’s ability to reach us through joy and pain is unequalled.  Whether it be in pure love fourteenrecorded performance, short film performance, live performance, dance…we were taken on a spiritual journey, coming  away with messages that ring out with great clarity still  today.

When Jackson performed, he could feel  these turbulent emotions surging through one of a kind twohim.  With his dancing and singing, he tried to transfuse the suffering…give it expression, meaning and strength.  It was liberating.”
