“She used to always rub my face and I never used to understand why. She used to say I had beautiful hands and I used to say, ‘Why, don’t all hands look alike?’ But now I see what she means because now I do it to my kids. I rub their faces like that because they are so sweet. I never understood why she did it to me. Then, you grow up and you realize that it’s an endearing thing to say, ‘I LOVE YOU’.”
Michael Jackson (Memories of Rose Fine)

“We wanted to do a film (GHOSTS) that’s very scary, but it should be a roller coaster ride with peaks and valleys, all kind of emotions. You know, there’s some pathos, I insisted on it. I hope you enjoy it. I hope it’s inspiring to a lot of people, and I hope it scares you. I hope it makes you laugh and I hope it makes you cry. That’s all I want to achieve…just some real entertainment.’
It is necessary to pay due diligence when peeling off the layers of Michael’s gift of touch if we are to truly understand it. So unique in its scope and depth, his survival instinct did not include pulling others under to save himself, for no matter how dark the days, Michael took the higher ground…remaining calm in the face of chaos. A true legend reflects the living life, and the life remembered after death, with the sum total offering inspiration in helping others to live. For those who know and, for those who don’t, our peeling honors the gift. Michael valued touch in an expanded definition which unconditionally accepted that…you take less than you give…always look forward, and never let go. Hearing the millions of voices crying SAVE ME, Michael believed in miracles that touched both the inner and outer lives of humankind with every touch motivated by LOVE. Dismissing the philosophy that you can only play the game…but never win, he stood in a position of power defending unpopular causes with a firm hand and a gentle heart. Michael reached out to teach, illuminate, and inspire…all the while entertaining us with his magical artistry. In truth, there is only one side of the Michael Jackson story and, for those who, in their increasingly cynical minds, believe that a chain reaction to hearsay, gossip and rumor has no end, Michael’s crusade goes on. We have chosen not to be accomplices to media and extortionist bullying. Soul-power is at stake here, for Michael has shown us that our real power lies within.
~We are the Guardians of Michael’s Legacy~
Accusation isn’t proof, repeating a lie doesn’t make it true, the line between investigating and persecuting is a fine one not to be stepped over, Michael’s life revealed to us a media that was wrong 100% of the time. Touching us with the strength of dissent, our search engines have been empowered with a singular mission: TO PAY MICHAEL FORWARD. This instrument has given strength to THE NEW MEDIA, also called CITIZEN JOURNALISM. “The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue.” Edward R. Murrow
Masquerade the heart
Is the height of haunting souls
Just not what you seek of me
Can the heart reveal the proof
Like a mirror tells the truth
See the evil one is you
Michael Jackson~ GHOSTS
Fearless and motivated by LOVE, each day we more deeply understand the love. It is a gentle caress of a beautiful hand, the soft kiss of a gentle man. It is the penetrating look from eyes that seem to go on for miles. It is the hug that never ends. It is the fire that ignites our sense of injustice and propels us into social justice activism. It is the ~sparkle from a little girl’s gaze containing the same knowledge that Nature implants at the heart of every life-form~ Michael’s touch is felt in every song, every dance, every performance, every speech, every interview, EVERYTHING in his creations.
~It is simple trusting like a child, not judgmental and committed to one narrow point of view~
“I believe that people living together in unity is one of the most important messages we can teach our children.”
~What one wishes is to be touched by truth and to be able to interpret that truth so that one may use what one is feeling and experiencing, be it despair or joy, in a way that will add meaning to one’s life and will hopefully touch others as well. This is art in its highest from. Those moments of enlightenment are what I continue to live for~
With one voice, touching with unconditional love,
I have the very strong feeling that Michael knew he wouldn’t live to a ripe old age. He once said as much to me…I was shocked. Asked him…how did he know that? And he said…well…my life has been a series of huge blessings and also many trials and tribulations. It is hard to walk a thin line between….but I try my best. He was monumentally blessed with a huge amount of talent…amounting to genius. And in most fields….composition, singing, dancing, painting, creation of shows…there seemed to be no limit to what he could do. (He could even cook very well). If he had decided to become an ace runner, he could have done that as well. (And he could run VERY fast). His enthusiasm for life was boundless….and it was so joyous to be with him. I always looked forward to the days which he he would spend with me. And I wished they would continue forever. Now, as I look back, I regret not going on his BAD Tour with him….(he had wanted me to come…play one keyboard). I was afraid to cancel my piano concerts…and I knew that tour would last a long time….at least 2 years. So in the end, I did not go…even though I knew it would be the experience of a lifetime. One of my dearest friends could not believe that I made that decision….she asked me: “Are you crazy? You turned Michael down? Didn’t you get it? He wanted you to play…yes…but he also wanted YOU with him.” Guess I didn’t get that one…and he wasn’t very good at being explicit about things. So my life took a different turn… But I think about Michael every day…and wish he were here again. He really was such a wonderful man in every way!
