“Love is the spirit that motivates the artist’s journey.”
“My heart’s scriptures taste foreign in the mouths of cowards and on the tongues of those who never breathed in the morning and breathed out the world.”
D. Antoinette Foy
“WHEN I AM SAD, I START REFLECTING ON THE GOOD TIMES TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER. I DO IT IN BED AT NIGHT SOMETIMES WHEN I GET DOWN ON MYSELF. I PUT THE MOST WONDERFUL THOUGHTS IN MY HEAD, SOME WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND I FEEL A CHEMICAL REACTION TAKING OVER MY BODY, WHERE I AM ACTUALLY THERE. I LOVE THAT.”
The idea of Artist’s Dates came to me while studying with Julia Cameron. That was a decade ago. Feeling the power of Plato’s words, “A life which is not examined is not worth living,” and still reeling from empowerment received during a particularly intense Artist’s Date, the time has come to make clear my desires for IMMERSION and become saturated in what I was actually hearing. How IMMERSION is revealed will determine what it is.
“To whatever degree you listen and follow your intuition, you become a creative channel for the higher power of the universe.”
Channeling Michael, I find myself working through uncertainty toward a sense of truth in the Light. I am certain that Michael’s life and legacy are necessary for world healing. Of that, I have absolutely no doubt. I am honored, and grateful beyond measure, for generous kindred spirits who have spent time with IMMERSION already. Intensively studying Michael Jackson is undoubtedly magically joyful. IT IS JUST PLAIN FUN. But, when I take time to really examine purpose, a reality has materialized…MICHAEL JACKSON IS A VEHICLE FOR SELF-DISCOVERY. When I have said that Michael Jackson is for everyone…I mean EVERYONE…we all need his messages to become complete. MICHAELJACKSON COMPLETES US.
Transformation is the inevitable outcome. Living in that transformation compels us to carve out pathways for change. The magnificence of this comes from the tapestry of colors and textures we each bring…each pathway going its own unique direction…all converging in the end. ALL ROADS LEAD TO BACK TO MICHAEL. “The sage is one who has first discovered what is common in our hearts.” Mencius
IMMERSION is an opportunity to share what I have learned over the past five and a half years: both in truthful information, and in life-transformation. Paradoxically, we discover that reality has limits and imagination is boundless. We are educated and we are set free. Both come when we choose to know Michael Jackson. Our inner spirits give way to outer expression, magically and powerfully “dancing”.
Truly, for me, this is an exercise in learning by doing. You have patiently allowed me to test my wings with MICHAELJACKSONCHOSENVOICES. Inspired everyday by Michael, each of us has an inner need to take the next step, all the while asking the question, “WHAT MORE CAN I GIVE?” Michael taught us that…NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE IN…KEEP YOUR HEAD UP and do the next right thing.
That next right thing for me is IMMERSION. Using the skills I practiced in career for 34 years, it seems appropriate to continue to teach. But, it really is more than that. The teaching part addresses the dissemination of truth. I take that responsibility very seriously. But, it then goes beyond the knowing and into the feeling. Suddenly, my role needs to be as mentor…using how I feel, how I have changed and grown…moving from pure education into self-discovery. THAT IS TRULY EXCITING TO ME. What I know for sure is: You cannot get to know Michael Jackson and not fall in love. You cannot know Michael Jackson and not be changed for the better. You cannot know Michael Jackson and not become an activist for a better world. IT SIMPLY ISN’T POSSIBLE. Everything we feel inside, and everything on the outside, join into one creative energy.
Moving from being satisfied with the status quo to courageous expansion…that is who we are in the Michael Jackson Communities. If I believe that statement, and I profoundly do…then, it is time for me to work to make IMMERSION a cohesive, structured learning experience, both privately in our home, and online. With wholehearted enthusiasm, I have invited two friends to join me in creating an IMMERSION EXPERIENCE…one privately at home…and one who lives half-way around the world. With great enthusiasm, and just a little trepidation, I begin. I will gratefully use your beautiful energies as fuel.
KEEPING YOUR HEAD UP TO THE SKY
KEEPING YOUR MIND UP STAY ALIVE
GIVE ME YOUR WINGS SO WE CAN FLY
EVERYBODY SAY THAT TIME IS BORROWED
AND HANGING DOWN YOUR HEAD JUST AIN’T NO GOOD
AND IF YOU DARE TO RISE ABOVE TOMORROW
JUST GIVE YOURSELF A CHANCE
FIGHT THE CIRCUMSTANCE
RISE AND DO IT AGAIN.
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
Thank you, Michael. You are my inspiration and my hope, my creative passion and my joy. I love you.
