ETHOS…Utopia Lost ~ Utopia Found

~ethos:  beliefs, customs or practices of a group, the fundamental character or spirit of a culture, the moral element which determines actions, dominant assumptions of a group…an immersion of soul into the universal current of life

For me, divinity takes form, that resonates in me, with Michael.”

Between the notes, beside the rhythm, within the dance, beyond the moves…we share Michael in every way we can, without seeking anything else.  What will come, will come.  The point is to do the work.  “That desire to do something is God inside, talking through us.”  Michelle Shea’s words shed light on our moving beyond the choreography of Michael’s last moments on earth…into the dance of his life.  It is the thought patterns we choose, and the persistence we give to affirming them.  When confronted with media ignorance and agenda-ridden myth, biopics filled with misinformation and lies,  we step back and say…We have been blessed with the truth and we are transformed.  With an emotional shift, there is no going back.  Throughout time, there have been those who have helped define divinity; Jesus, The Dali Lama, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela.  Michael, too, was a chosen one.  His balm heals, soothes and helps to mitigate our pains.  We are empowered to make decisions that change everything.  We do the next right thing.  We feel a pathos to understanding.

~I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining~

~I believe in love when I cannot feel it~

~I believe in God, even when he is silent!

*words written on a wall during the Holocaust

We are reminded…THAT’S JUST THE WAY IT ENDED.  IT  WASN’T A MEASURE OF THE EXPERIENCE.  As the calendar page turns to June, we feel waves of profound sadness, and often find it hard to accept these words.  History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes.  June after June, we suffer through tabloid media and extortionists inviting our anger.  We have learned to use anger, acting upon it to point us in a direction worthy of Michael.  We are rewarded by our risk taking…empowered to continue to educate the world.  Learning from Michael strength and persistence, we refuse to allow our freedom to be sabotaged.  Writing is one way to share the truth.  Through the lens of Michael, our fight is with a pipeline of ideas, telling his story.

Respecting our biologically programmed need for play, we deal with difficulties.  Play provides a sense of expansiveness and promotes mastery of our work…an essential part of the creative process.  It is PEOPLE POWER, winning and losing…never a spectator sport.  In a time where the ugly stew of racism comes from those in power, where money is its only goal,  Michael’s words enlighten our souls, more precious than jewels.  We have been told:  When in sorrow, the light is closest to us~Hazrat Inayat Khan  We know that what has been said is not enough.

Michael Jackson is aesthetically and spiritually significant.  We return to his artistry day after day ~ as I have done for eight years since that seminal moment that pushed me into the light~ with a feeling of wonder and excitement.  We move from fear to love. 

Shmhm~to hear or listen

This ETHOS, this universal current of life, is UTOPIA FOUND.  Because we feel deeply, we use what we have learned to express ourselves.  Beginning with the moment that made a difference in the trajectories of our lives, we live:  There is a legend that says…Once in your lifetime something happens and changes your whole life forever.  After this turning point, your life will never be the same.  Often, we may feel  the weight of subtractive art; thinking about what is this vast universe called Michael Jackson, isolating the essence of what the theme is for today.

“Do not wait for someone else to come and speak for you.  It’s you who can change the world.”

Malala Yousfzai

There is a moral DNA that Michael brings out in us all as we march toward ourselves.  Our connectedness to God expresses itself with Michael as our Guide.  We are held and comforted, even learning to metabolize pain as energy.  As Albert Einstein said:  In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.  With our connection lies our voice.


You can change the world (I can’t do it by myself)

You can touch the sky (Gonna take somebody’s help)

You’re the chosen one (I’m gonna need some kind of sign)

~I promise to use this platform, as we all should.  I will use my voice to speak for the voiceless and to fight for the rights that every one of us deserves.  Every woman that walks this earth, every mother, every sister, every daughter, and every lover, every member of my fellow LGBTQ community, every immigrant, every child, every animal and every plant.  The glamour is awesome, the fashion, everything is cool but, there’s so much more, there are so many important things we need to be using our voices  for…and, everybody in this room has the power~

“I honestly used to have no motivation whatsoever to be in the public eye; it scared me.  I’ve seen what it can do to people and plenty get hurt.  But after a long time of thinking, I started to really see the kind of impact I already have on people, how I was born with a platform, and I didn’t want to waste it.  There are so many people who work their entire lives to create a platform and mine was just handed to me.  Why not use it for something important.  So many people right now are so focused on what kind of shoes  a person has, the designer purse they carry, what car they drive or whether they wear the same outfit more than once.  I want to use my platform for something other than that.  I want to actually make a difference.  So everything that I’m doing, the acting, the modeling…it’s all just to grow my platform so I can use my voice for things that matter.”

Voices in this worldwide choir come from all walks of life, cultures, countries, religions, ages.  Voices are heard from Michael’s family and Fan family in crescendoes of melody and harmony.  We no longer accept a Utopia Lost.  “This is a place you choose to be with me when you thought you could be in another world.”  Michael told us Neverland represented the totality of who he was…this Utopia we have been gifted represents our totality.  We slow our pace, taking time to live and learn from each moment of the universal current of our lives.  And then, we share this ETHOS with the world, for we truly know Michael’s life and legacy matter.

“Thinking is the process of asking and answering questions of yourself.  If you want something better in life, a better answer to life…ask better questions.”

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson’s story is meant to be unfinished so that we can keep reaching.  It may be an answer to the question:  Is it better to journey than to arrive?  If service is the rent we pay for living, Michael’s persistent payments command us to find our humanity against all resistance, with due diligence, as we live in what many would say is a culture of fear.  Led by someone greater than us, with the capacity to bring love and compassion into our lives, changing mindsets into what is possible, we come together to move barriers into meeting points.  Hope is learned.  It is a call for a wake up.  Joseph Vogel described Michael’s artistry as substantive lyrics becoming so much more in the delivery.  It is a rallying cry to action.  People care about Michael’s music and dance, seeing Michael inside of it, responding from deep within his body.  Social justice problems laid out in verse, solutions found in the choruses…questions asked and then answered by a community of voices, powerful as one.  Jeremiad:  a lamentation, mournful complaint. 

Here to express his inner being with an infinite power of light, Michael was never his own obstacle, never owned by the environment he found himself in, but rather owning the phenomenal world around him…creative in every moment of it.  A modern day prophet, a spokesperson predicting what is to come.  In our world today, those who seem surprised by the idea of fake news and alternative facts, accepted the code or set of principles that contained different provisions for Michael throughout his lifetime.  And, although appalled by current events, remain willing to continue the double standard where Michael Jackson is concerned.  A study of Michael’s life reveals the turning point in the decline of ethics and values that once held journalists to a higher standard.  The adage ~Nothing loses my interest faster than someone lying  to me~ has caught up with a media that now seeks to regain its credibility.  They seek the connection which is an energy between people.  Respect is earned, not given.  After decades of losing all respect…a comeback to a principled press is unlikely.  ~The arc of the moral universe is long and bends toward justice~ 

~Nothing in life has any meaning except the meaning I give it~

Michael Jackson

We who PAY MICHAEL FORWARD have learned that the quicker fake news is refuted, the quicker it dies.  Michael  has taught us that we are all the right person, at the right time, for the right issue…the time is always NOW, allowing no roadblocks built out of media myth to get in the way, never looking for a safe option.

“He is the strongest person I know, and he tried to do everything with as much love and kindness as possible.  All my inspiration, I would say 99%of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world.  He is my roots.”

Paris Jackson

Nobody knew his secret ambition

Nobody knew his claim to fame

He broke the old rules steeped in tradition

He tore the holy veil away

Questioning those in powerful positions

Running to those who called his name

But nobody knew his secret ambition

Was to give his life away

~Even if no one recognizes you…I do, because you are my life and my soul~  Rumi

Vital voices come together each day with the mantra:  I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change.  I am changing the things I cannot accept.  (Women’s Movement 2017)  No longer will we accept the media mantra:  We are about conclusions in search of evidence.  We stand with Malala Yousafzai when she says:  Do not wait for someone else to come and speak for you.  It’s you who can change the world.

~Those who live passionately teach us how to love~

~Those who love passionately teach us how to live~

Sarah Ban Breathnach

Michael has shown us over and over again that we were not born for ourselves.  Connection affects the way our brain develops and performs.  We are part of something bigger.  Michael’s storytelling gave definition to how we all live.  Resisting captivity, we seek a better world.  As within, so without.  A superficial look at Michael Jackson might provide the Epithet KING OF POP.  And, although that is true, it is only the beginning.  Looking deeper, the definition expands to take in a universe of meanings.  A title is earned…a name is given. 

“And the end of all of our exploring will be to return to the place where we began, and know it for the first time.”

T.S. Eliot

We revisit Michael’s artistry to renew our strength, to empower our hopefulness, to refocus on what is vital.  With each visit, we find added layers that ignite a richer experience.  Our connection to Michael and to one another is grounded in love and compassion.  From Michael’s Scared of the Moon, we understand that sharing stories and experiences improves our physical and mental health. (Professor James Pennebaker University of Texas)  In turning human struggles into great art, Michael defined Carl Jung’s words when he said:  I am not what has happened to me.  I am what I choose to become.  Owning our stories allows us to write the endings.  Disconnection doesn’t protect the human spirit.  Not only was Michael capable of being wounded, his vulnerability has been a birthplace of love and belonging, joy and courage.  We have learned to join hands, pulling together for the greater good.  Unlike those who spew unclaimed rumor…we believe…If you are not comfortable owning it, don’t say it.  From the greatest dreamer we have ever known…we have learned how to dream.  For if it ends now, it is just a frozen dream.  (E.J.Walker)  We will never allow that to happen.

Michael  has  told us…I can’t do this by myself…gonna take somebody’s help.  Rising collectively, in the company of Kindred Hearts, with a sense of great privilege and humility, honored beyond words, we continue an unfinished story.  Our hope is that our best work has not yet been realized.



~Keep on reaching~

~Do it for me~




~Gratitude is the heart’s memory~

A French Proverb

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while DARING GREATLY, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”


In our thirst for justice, an energy evolves that moves from lack to principled abundance.  Adversity has called us into action with a kind of journalism of indignation.  And, although the term fake news has recently been coined, we fans are more than familiar with its original prototype.  The crucifixion of Michael Jackson is a blueprint in the hands of a fractured media, lies told in fast succession.  Michael lived out decades speaking truth to power.  Our creative call puts that history in motion, our lodestar leading the way.  We find ourselves in a journey of call and response as we move from a collective fear to collective ecstasy.  With a constellation of choices in front of us, chaos clears as the strands of confusion unravel.  Rumi’s meaning made clear:  “In the core of my heart, my love for you knows no limits.”  Michael spent his life giving people what they needed, knowing full well every individual would thrive.  Empowered, we do both heart work and head work.  Applying large and small brushstrokes, this art will never be completed unless and until an entire world basks in the glow of the truth…recalling the words Michael spoke:  “Not only am I presumed innocent, I am innocent!  And I know the truth will be my salvation.”

Michael Jackson understood the power of connection, never taking the path of least resistance.  “Courage has a ripple effect.  Every time we choose courage, we make everyone around us a little better and the world a little braver.”  (Brene Brown)

~When you perform, you are out of yourself,  larger and more potent, more beautiful.  You are, for minutes, heroic.  This is power.  This is glory on earth…and, it is yours nightly~

Agnes DeMille

Michael moved far beyond nightly potency and power, reaching beyond  the moment and into the forever.  He has left us the perpetual flame of a leading man.  The universe is not short of wake-up calls.  With each, we find a language of love and a clarity of meaning as we forge our own blueprints.  With each awakening, we are carried home to who we really are, as each experience continues to shape our lives.  “As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”  Nelson Mandela

With the transformative power of storytelling, we feel hope through struggle.  Sometimes uncomfortable, often unpredictable, we know we will never thrive keeping our heads down and our mouths shut.  There is a powerful language in this collective energy as inner beauties are revealed.  We are here.  We have arrived.  We thrive on creativity and learning.  We educate…pledging and repledging our futures together.  We have learned from Michael peace through strength.

Michael’s artistry and legacy hold a contemporary relevance.  He has shown us what it looks like to turn toward rather than away from one another.  We have learned to channel collective energy and send it back out into the world using the voice of an ethical pop artist.

~Some people come into our lives quickly and go.  Some people move our souls to dance.  They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.  Some people make the shy more beautiful to gaze upon.  They stay in our lives for awhile, and leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same~


Imprinted on our lives is the idea that we are not born for ourselves.  Michael moments resonate in our memory and fuel our steps forward with a good that blesses us as we find out how high we can fly.

“Michael Jackson added one more important component:  the spiritual message.  Such absolute belief in the power of art to change the consciousness.  This complete devotion to the execution of his art works miracles with thousands of people.”


~Be humble, believe in yourself and have the love of the world in your heart~

Michael Jackson

“Michael Jackson understood that to be a real humanitarian was not only in signing checks and performing in charity concerts.  For him, it was a full-time job that needed a closer, more intimate and personal  scale.  The scale of the generosity of Michael has not been seen before in celebrity circles.  He was a deeply committed humanitarian who fought to combat youth violence, child abuse, juvenile diabetes, poverty, with all of his heart and soul.”


~Turn him into stars and form a constellation in his image.  His face will make the heavens so beautiful that the world will fall in love with the night and forget about the garish sun~


We will never leave the one who touches our soul more than our bodies.  We feel the warmth of his perpetual flame in our hearts knowing that “a star can never die.  It just turns into a smile and melts back into the cosmic music, the dance of life.”  We have seen his face covered with sweat and the blood of seeking perfection, raising the bar, never settling, and we know it was all for us.  We love because he first loved us. 

~The infinity of God’s creation embraces me.  We are one~

Michael Jackson

“Love awakens the soul to act.”


We act in the warmth of a perpetual flame.

I will be standing in the light

THE KING OF STYLE…Dressing Michael Jackson

It takes a long time to reach God’s intention, his divine order supplying our light.  This special province where all prevails in seeking Michael, reveals a dream catcher in motion.  It is a refuge which embraces our journey from innocence to experience,  stopping not at experience, but instead gently eases us back to our childlike innocence.  Michael teaches the meaning of fugue:  one, two, three themes, several voices or parts coming together in complex form, marked with climax.  In this sanctuary we live the mantra:  Tomorrow starts today.

“As I desire to do only that which is good and constructive, life-giving and life-expressing, the Divine Abundance forever manifests in my endeavors.  Therefore, I know that I shall prosper in everything I do.  I know that I exist in limitless possibility, and that the infinite Good is right where I am and active in my experience.”

Ernest Holmes

In our efforts to PAY MICHAEL FORWARD as a means of educating the world, we hold to Sanaya Roman’s thought:  “Your words create what you speak about.  Learn to speak positively.”  Michael gets us in motion to heal ourselves, and then move into a world that seeks that healing.  With our attention comes our creative energy.  “Positive attention brings positive results.”  Lao Tzu  “It is the child that sees the primordial secret in Nature, and it is the child of ourselves we return to.  The child within us is simple and daring enough to live the secret.”

“One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal.  We must pursue peaceful end through peaceful means.”

Michael Jackson


Without connection, the world is dangerously wrong.  In Michael, our eyes awaken to really see.  His power to affect people spiritually cannot be denied nor replicated.  The universe doesn’t spin on suffering but rests on JOY.  I’m telling you to open your minds…Gotta put your heart on the line.  Michael Jackson incarnated wisdom, passion and love.  “The purest, most giving love I’ve ever known.”  Elizabeth Taylor  Bringing us together for a purpose, Michael championed causes on behalf of those who suffered, on behalf of children, on behalf of the planet.  He holds us fast.  He invested in us…this medley of people morphed into one.

“I look at things and try to imagine what is possible and then, hope to surpass those boundaries.”

I don’t think there’s anything I had to teach them (Michael’s children) because my uncle taught them everything they need to know.  All the important things…their core ethics and values are so strong.  And, there’s moments where I just hear my uncle’s voice come out of them because of their love for people and their innocence.  I just try to make sure they know their father was one of the greatest, greatest fathers.  That’s why it’s tough for me because he never got to finish his job as a parent.”

T.J. Jackson

“To all those who judged a man without knowing anything about him, you now have a second chance to finally understand who Michael Jackson was.  His son is showing you what Michael Jackson’s heart was like.”

Laura Messina


“Basically, when we were growing up, my dad  was always talking about and showing us what he was doing to help the kids and help the world.  He taught me what it is to be a man.  He showed me what it is to be a father.  Giving back is something my dad did and he instilled in me and my siblings to keep doing it.  I think it’s just the way I was raised…honestly.”

“A Christmas Memory with Dad:  I don’t know if he bought all the toys, but there were a lot of toys.  He brought them in 2 sleighs.  And when he walked in all the kids…the whole room lit up.  And everybody was happy.  There was music, he was taking pictures and telling jokes to the kids.  We were there a long time.”

“Our generation focusses on trivial things, like who’s wearing what, who does what, who goes on vacation and where.  There are real problems in the world that can be helped, not by powerful people, but by ordinary people who arrive to devote their time.  I’ve got a great sense of loyalty and dedication to my family.  They inspire me and I hope that I inspire them.”

“Let’s be grateful to God that he sent us such an angel to live amongst us for awhile and let us not be indifferent to the wrongs we see around us.  If Michael ever wanted us to do one thing that would make him happy as he looks down over us today, it would be not to turn away from the victims of oppression and aggression.  And, if in doubt about ever knowing what or how to act, just think:  WHAT WOULD MICHAEL DO?”

Dr. Patrick Treacy

“Dear Friends, Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Prime Minister…These children are as dear to me as are all the children of the world.  Today, I’ve had a opportunity to see the face of transformation and civilization.  A moment like this means healing the world.  We must heal the world and ourselves.  We have to weave our life like a web, because we are part of this web.  Out of negligence, we have contaminated and polluted our planet.  In exchange, we have hurt ourselves.  In the life song of the ages is the dance of our blood.  The environment is an extension of our body and it gives the pulse of love and is the orchestra of the universe’s symphony.  It is music’s territory and enables us to rediscover our souls.  Let’s rejoice together in love today with unity and conciliation.  Let’s heal everybody and thus heal ourselves.  Let us make a covenant with life and let us celebrate with joy a new world…healed.  Thank you, especially to all the children of the world.  I love you all.”

Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means you stand alone.  Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.  Never regret doing the right thing no matter what the cost may be.  Don’t shrink away from standing and speaking or doing  for fear of the repercussions or personal price.  It takes a strong person to turn the other cheek, to not look the other way, to not just simply walk away.”

To truly see takes time.  To listen and follow intuition gives birth to becoming a creative channel for a higher power.  Wonder is the spiritual touchstone.  For each of us has found our hearts’ center.  We have become dreamers in concert with one another, really hearing an insistent voice within.  Our strength is in unity, our words empower.  We begin to resemble the people Michael envisaged.  The story continues to be told everyday, with a love that grows and grows.  Michael’s dreams were never small, his creations grew out of love, and sometimes forged out of struggle and conflict, always a triumph of imagination over technique.  Once a dream was realized, he moved on to another dream, taking what was in the past and using it for the future.

Michael Jackson found hope in the impossible, dreams incubated by his faith.  His art claimed our world, rebellious and triumphant.  Without Michael supplying light, we may not have seen dangers many wished to ignore.  With our voltage turned up, we go into action…a collective energy far greater than one standing alone.

Driven by love and emotion done instinctively, Michael speaks to us.  The complexity and layers are there for those who want it…the experience there to enjoy.  Given to time, with epiphanies along the way, each individual perception makes it all special in its reality.

~He was poetry in a world that was just learning the alphabet~


“There is no greater bliss then dancing and performing.  It is like a celebration and when you are caught up in that place, where certain performers go, when you become one with the music, one with the audience, if you are on that level, it is like being in a trance, it just takes you over.  You start to play off each other and start to know where you are going before you get there.  They have to know where you are taking it and  It’s like playing Ping-Pong.  It is like when the birds migrate, they know where they’re going.  Or like fish…they are telepathic.  They are on the same line.  That’s what happens when you perform.  You are at one with the musicians and the dance and the music and you are in this trance…and man, you got ’em.  They are in the palm of your hand.  It’s unbelievable.  You feel you are transformed.  It is divine.  It is pure.  It’s a revelation without making it sound spiritual or religious, but it is divine energy.  Some people call it spirit, like when the spirit comes  into the room.  Some people look down on it.  Religions sometimes look down on it because they try to say it’s demonic, it’s the cult, it’s the devil.  It isn’t.  It is God-like.  It is pure God-like energy.  You feel God’s light.”

~Touch my head for your touch removes the darkness of the body~


Michael Jackson was a genius artist whose creations are a continuous thread of revelation, offering vistas that excite.  His music gives more with each listen to hungry cultures of all races of people.  He teaches us that creation is accomplished by the play instinct, a creative power that makes us indifferent to fighting and the accumulation  of objects and money.  His limitless creativity brings with it spiritual gifts.  He shows us that being ourselves opens channels of thought.  He brings to life Ingrid Bengis’ philosophy:  Words are a form of action capable of influencing change.  We are learning from moment to moment in an ebb and flow of recovery.  Love needs expression and so we write, paint, sing, dance…and, seek ways to do what we can tosave-michael-one-hundred-one-hundred-four make our world better.

“There is no doubt my son accomplished great things in his life, yet he always strived for more.  He was ambitious.  HE WAS A DREAMER.”

And so, we turn away from cynicism, those who strive to create fear using bigotry, racism, prejudice and hate as a method of separation.  We turn away from those who paint global warming as fiction.  Instead we say:  It is possible for transparency and magic to live together in harmony.  “Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity.  It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and the deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment.”  Arthur Jersild speaks to the Michael Jackson Artistic and Humanitarian Legacy.  Project save-michael-one-hundred-eighty-threeHappiness describes it with these few words:  May humanity be our race.  May love be our religion.  We have chosen to dream with the world’s most imaginative dreamer.  We are in the vicinity of the sacred, our strings touched by love with a depth that holds onto our souls.  Michael inspires us…an evoker of wonder.  Within his dreams lies our opportunities.  Our passion focusses our will.

“Art is divine.  To create is to experience God.  The higher our refinement of this art through devotion and absorption, the greater the connection with God becomes. Michael knew that if he could inspire us to create, we would find God, even if we didn’t know what it was we had found.  To touch God is enough…even once.  But touch it once, and light shoots forth from the stillness.  This one touch lights our souls on fire and the journey has then begun.  Like a Pied Piper, Michael called us to follow him as he led us to God, first through experiencing his art and next by encouraging us to discover our own.  This is why he was willing to die for it…THE DIVINE SACRIFICE.”save-michael-one-hundred-eighty-five

We find ourselves today in a world that often seems to spin somewhere between evil and crazy, and maybe beyond.  It’s because often, proof isn’t good enough…changing the old adage…all is fair in love and, if you can get away with it.  Why?  Daily, we see an epic failure of the media when a lie is not called a lie…and, liars simply stretch the truth.  Why?

Maya Angelou said:  When someone shows you who they are, believe them.

“When we were in Philadelphia, we went to visit a house intended for disabled children.  There was a boy who had no legs or arms.  Michael curiously asked the director whatsave-michael-one-hundred-three would this boy most desire?  She said:  You will find it very interesting.  He would like to have a motorcycle…but, he has no arms or legs.  Michael was silent and then smiled.  Upon leaving, he got in touch with his lawyer, ordered a special motorcycle adapted for the boy, and also provided that prosthetic arms and legs be fixed to the boy.  He also paid for a professional to train the boy to ride the motorcycle.”

“Regardless of any and all allegations proposed against Michael Jackson, it cannot be disputed that he worked hard to improve the world he saw so many problems with.  Unlike many of us, wishing things were better wasn’t enough.  Michael saw the world not just for what it was, but for what it could be, and because of this, he spent his entire life using his gifts and skills to change the world.  Michael  is a testament to the amount of difference a man can make when he truly dedicates himself.”

Michael spent little time allowing despair to get in the way of his dreams.  He had the ability to distinguish between bad luck and new beginnings…first the gesture, then the grace.  He saw the gifts behind problems and fears and learned from them, being the savvy innocent he was.  His days were filled with a powerful desire to affect change. Those of us who have studied his words, lyrics, speeches, stories and choices, feel a closeness to him…closer in the destinies we have chosen than we are with many friends we know personally.  Divination is the means by which you engage in dialogue with the divine.  In an ancient form of prayer, Michael offers us divine guidance.  And although we often feel the hard knocks of adversity, we hold on to save-michael-one-hundred-fourteenMichael’s soft touches.  Being joyful is within our grasp.  We listen for the holy whispers of all things possible, appealing to our better angels.  In falling in love with Michael Jackson, we have a better understanding of our soul intensity.

We’re taking over

We have the truth

This is our mission why-seven

To see it through

We have learned that love needs expression for the story to be told every day, and the love to grow.  At the recent opening of the African-American Museum in Washington, D.C. we learned:  MEMORIALS FORGIVE BUT NEVER FORGET.  Everything Michael did had a purpose.  Why are we here?  What is our purpose?  Where is our strength?  When things get chaotic and life seems to be spinning out of control, we turn to our True North, seeking to escape, finding answers to our questions.  Michael answers save-michael-eighty-nineevery WHY.  And, even when HE ASKED WHY…he followed that question with a path. 

“When a Black voice is raised in protest to oppression, those who are comfortable with our oppression are the first to criticize us for daring to speak out against it.

Harry Belafonte

In studying Michael Jackson, we discover who we are.  And, we realize that his history must not be allowed to vanish under the force of myth and lies.

“Michael Jackson didn’t just grab the gold ring.  He hooked it to a new bar and set it even higher.  And nobody has yet snatched it with quite the same flair or results.”

Rolling Stonesave-michael-eighty-seven

“The point about Michael Jackson is not that he is odd, but that the man is a genius.  As a dancer, he ranks well up there with Fred Astaire and Rudolf Nureyev.  As a singer, he has been dazzlingly brilliant since he first cleared his throat on stage when he was eight.  To put it at its clearest, Michael Jackson is an extremely important figure in the history of popular culture.”

Tom Utley  British Journalistsave-michael-one-hundred

WHY?  “If there were none who were discontented with what is, the world would never reach for anything better.” (Taken from Florence Nightingale)  We stand fast in educating the world.  We stand fast in making sure that myth and lies never erase Michael Jackson’s legacy.  With Michael Jackson there is never too much of a good thing.  WHY?  Because we are here to celebrate passion and inspiration and a fulfilled vision of what the world can become.

Between the dreaming and the coming true, we realize the love that has found us, catching us when we stumble, showing us something good on a dark day.  Every moment offers a second chance.  With Michael we have a healing balm, a sacred partnership.  The more truth we tell, the more possibilities for truth to happen, for we know that changing beliefs leads to changed behavior, ultimately changing the choices we make.  The past and future meet in how we remember, what we remember, and why we remember, forming a personal map of our individuality.  Although each of us has a different character story, we truly understand the concept that good things are meant tosave michael forty eight be shared.  Eileen Mayhew reminds us that tears water our soul, and we have cried an ocean of them with a loss that has shaped our futures.  This is a story worth telling, a story that strikes most nearly to the heart.  (Caitlin Matthews)

And so, we take from Michael’s words:  I thank my fans around the world.  I love you.  I couldn’t be ME without YOU.  With the energy of a pulsing love that does not stop, we are guided toward who we are and what we can become.  One wonderful revelation leads to another.

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.  The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices, and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”

The ties between us, ties of hope and love that bind men, women, and children across the planet, all are revealed when we turn our thoughts to Michael Jackson.  “I’ve never seen anybody LIVE  like Michael.  No one will ever come close.”  We can take Rob Lowe’s words beyond surface definitions of LIVE performance, and instead come to this truth:  The REAL THING reveals the exultation of the possible.  Time and time again, revisiting reminds us of why we are here, and inspires OUR forward visions.  We embrace the notion…if there is a book we really want to read and it hasn’t been written yet, then WE must write it ourselves.  It is in our DNA to do so.  Although the notion  that we cannot change someone who doesn’t see an issue in their actions often swims around in our consciousness, we are so far from done.  For, Michael Jackson’s power is real whether you believe it or not.  Knowledge is the beginning of understanding, of that we are sure.all time five

~When you find something you love, you can never get enough of it~

Although true, we cannot stop there.  We feel an obligation to share the love.  A 20 second hug releases the bonding hormone neutron transmitter oxytocin, nature’s anti-depressant and anti-anxiety.  Oxytocin is a powerful hormone.  A hug acts as a neutron transmitter to the brain.  Scientists suggest that you need to experience at least 8 hugs a day in order to feel happier and content with life.  Michael gave the science of this fact velocity.  His gentle, passionate perseverance was unflinching in the belief that showing love changes the world.  His long hugs are legend.  The authenticity of intimacy is palpable.  Simply watching gives spiritual impact. Hungering for this beauty and goodness finds a home in our soul.  We then set about doing Michael’s heartwork, his soul and ours are the same…profoundly connected.GLOW NINE 

As for me, I know of nothing else but miracles.”

Walt Whitman

Our passion is embodied in our prayers for something more.  Michael’s dreams for a better world are translated through our actions.  If, as Diane Ackerman says, that choice is a signature of our species, we choose our birthright, looking for the gifts within the struggle and benefitting from them.

The biggest enemy of Michael Jackson’s legacy is the myth.  Opening our eyes to aGLOW SEVEN new day, we pray that joy cometh in the morning.  And alas, many mornings fall short of that prayer.  Erasing the unrecognizable version of reality is increased during the months of June and August.  Many claim to crawl into Michael’s mind and then define what they think they have seen there, presuming to know…but, instead spotlighting myths.  To those with a media spin, facts won’t help…no attention given to the masses of Fans gathered in Los Angeles, Forest Lawn, Neverland and Gary, Indiana…no coverage for TRIBUTES, MEMORIALS…LANTERNS OF LOVE…vigils of devotion.  While authors join talking heads to increase the sales of disrespectful fiction and trash tabloids return to 2005 to obliterate facts…we gather to write the truth…the “book” we want to read.  Spending our time in search of causes that continue Michael’stom messereau two messages, we give energy to changing the lives of children for the better, seek answers that protect the ecology.

~The most pure people are always torn down.  It will continue to be proven that my beloved Dad has always been and forever will be INNOCENT~

Paris Jackson

Once again, we awaken searching for joy, and finding despair instead…yet another attempt to destroy, begun by a sleazy tabloid and gleefully used as a take-down-piece by mainstream media.  Instead of truth, words are put where answers should be.  It is time once again to turn to the REAL THING, exalting in the POSSIBLE.

“He was a man of power, of positive power that brought people together in the time he lived.  He brought people from all walks of life, all nationalities, friends, and foes alike.  He was healing in the spirit because he healed a lot of people with his music and with his spirit.  Being in his presence, when he visited hospitals, the children would be miraculously healed.  Michael should be remembered for being one of the most positive and unselfish beings that ever lived.  He just happened to be a singer and a dancer.”alove nine

“Rose Fine…a Jewish woman who was my beloved childhood tutor and who traveled with me and my brothers when we were in the Jackson Five…she called me her son.  I learned unconditional love from her.  I have seen it.  I have experienced I.  It doesn’t matter with blood or race or creed or color.  Love is Love.  It breaks all boundaries.  I see it in children’s eyes.  When I see children, I see helpless little puppies.  They are so sweet.  How could anybody hurt them?  Children are truly the highest form of perfection to me.  They are God’s greatest miracles.”

“If you’re a rocker, you can mournfully emote over a guitar, and rappers have made an ethic out of being too stone-cold to move on stage.  But, if you’re a man singing pop music today, there’s a long, moonwalk shaped shadow you have to live up to.”

The L.A. Times

“Charity in the modern age began with Michael Jackson.  Whereas every billionaire would squander away token money in order to evade taxes and earn immortality, Michael Jackson would give away the entire proceeds of his shows to the cause of black children in America, and for the dispossessed in Africa…without mention in the press.  If charity meant following the trumpets on celebrity T.V. shows, if charity meant giving, without expecting perhaps in its grandest term, it has ended as well, with Michael Jackson.”WE ARE ONE

The music industry grants of America, with their racist press collaborators, took away the life of the greatest entertainer the world has witnessed in recorded history.  Unlike anyone in human history, way more than any president of modern times, or emperor of the ancient age…It was Michael Jackson who was recognized by people all across the globe.  Michael Jackson was the black man who steadfastly refused to walk the ropes, to plead with the press to sell his musical soul, to corporate copyrighters.  Everything he did, he did with a sense of dedication that shook the foundation of common knowledge, violating the principles of the status quo.  Michael Jackson was an internationalist.  Greater than any country on this earth, greater than the UN’s duplicitous endeavors, and certainly greater than the neoliberal rhetoric by free market champions, are the contributions of Michael Jackson in making the world a better place.  Children, to him, were the past, present and future.  They were the center of the universe.  Believe Michael over mainstream press.  Trust him over a racist judicial system.”  Saswat Pattanayak  New York based Media Research Scholar

“All this stuff about Michael being a weirdo…it’s a pile of goddamn shit.  I’ve recorded a whole lot of these pop musicians, and this guy’s the straightest of the goddamn lot!”  Bruce SwedienPURITY SIX

Our confidence and love come from the profound kindness of Michael Jackson.  Seeing the lows in the media, shocked by its depths…we go high.  Across millions of miles, our heartbeats are tossed in unison rhythm…ONE VOICE, ONE LOVE.  It is in our DNA.  Celebrating the past, joining together in the present…creating a future in Michael’s name.  IT IS ALL FOR LOVE!

“He honestly believed it was his job to heal and make a difference.  From the depth of his being, his mission was transformation and transcendence.  He wanted us to go to that higher level of consciousness with him.  With a heart as enormous as his talent, Michael took to BEING the instrument of change that this world so desperately needs.”

In the Arms of the Beloved sets forth these truths:  “THE GIFT was that the world, if they wanted to, could now see with crystal clarity what had been given to us.  THE GIFT was that the world, if they wanted to, could finally stop addressing who Michael Jackson ISN’T, and begin to flow with who HE IS.  IT WAS ALWAYS THERE…hiding in plain sight.”  Revisiting what is in plain sight reminds us of why we are here and inspires forward vision.  Our continued searching leads to greater wisdom for “Embedded within Michael’s works were the Keys and Codes of activation He needed us to have.  The multiple layers He loved to create allowed for any open heart functioning at any given level of understanding to be impregnated with these codes.  The alchemy this union created was the Maestro’salove three greatest gift.”  (In the Arms of the Beloved)  With Michael Jackson’s artistry, everything has a purpose.  Those who interpret his lessons as singular in intent miss the deeper layers of instruction.  Revelations take time and study.  The sacred is found according to each individual need, with wisdom’s golden gifts grown in the fertile soil of the soul.  “No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”  Helen Keller’s words speak to the capacity of the inner reservoir.  The REAL THING has been revealed:  priming the pump of inspiration is defined with a single word…MICHAEL.

An Avatar leads an entire world.  (In the Arms of the Beloved)  Present in our thoughts and actions today, Michael Jackson leads us to be who we really are, do what needs to be done, and have the world we want.  The ties of love and hope are strengthened as education thaws the frozen hell of  those who find Michael Jackson a steep learning curve.  “Every moment a voice out-of-this-world calls on our soul to wake up and rise.”  Rumi  Both Presidents Reagan and Bush recognized the power of Michael’s ambassadorship around the world.  But, many have yet to discover the affect he had on global relations…his influence, both past and present.  His universal messages speak tohumanity all humankind, about all humankind, for all humankind, dispelling the plague of jealousy and hatred.  Within our grasp, within our sight, we set Michael’s dreams alight.

As we revisit the wealth of research available to us, one thing becomes clear…unlike the plethora of flip flop dished out to us by a diseased media…the scope of Michael’s work remained unchanged, his message cherished…recanting unnecessary.

“It was up to the citizens of the world, especially our children, to confirm who is deserving of this honor.  This makes The Magical Life Award truly unique in that it is an award from the hearts of children and those adults who still have the heart of a child.  When given the opportunity to vote for the person that inspired them the most to stay in touch with the magic of their inner child, thousands of children from around the world voted for Michael Jackson.”


Michael Jackson never chose the comfort of a failed role.  With a pulsating energy that infuses all life, chosen by God as a receptacle of grace, he believed in the curative powers of love.  The electricity of his talent provided a prism through which we view ourselves.  When Natalie Barney said, “Sensuality, wanting a religion, invented love,” her words aptly described Michael Jackson.  Echoing our origins, with a marvelous power that embraced the forming of bonds creating attachment one to another, he defined for us everyday epiphanies.  Passion became a person.  Evidence of things unseen proved substance for our hopes…with dreams never deferred nor denied.  “A ship is always safe at shore, but that is not what it’s built for,”  Einstein’s words apply to Michael’s show that never ends, with a bravery speaking out and taking the heat.  An artist’s job is to captivate us for however long our attention is held.  But, that is not the complete measure of the Michael Jackson experience.  Jung tells us that creative minds play with what they love.  Schreiner asks into how little space can a human soul be crushed?  With overwhelming force, Michael Jackson showed us the things we can do.  With frailties, flaws and foibles, we stand against the all right threefault line that seeks to guarantee our failure, drawn into Michael’s radiant light, we are loved into full being.  Each day we resist captivity with awakened powers.  “Faith is the centerpiece of a connected life.  It allows us to live by the grace of invisible strands.  It is a belief in a wisdom superior to our own.  Faith becomes a teacher in the absence of fact.”  Terry Tempest Williams explains our spirit of revolt.  Surviving means being born over and over again.  Through Michael we reach for something better.  Claiming the events of his life, peeling away the layers of complicated artistry, we join him in servicealight four at a loftier level.

“Michael had a unique place in the world.  He not only did good, but taught others how to do the same.  Michael wanted to help people see the problems that are destroying our world.  That’s what he was about and what his upcoming shows were about.  He was trying to teach through lyrics, video, and performance.  He wanted to use every part of himself to show us what we are capable of becoming.  His goal was to demonstrate to people that if we all just try to make our world a better place, it will be.   Michael did charity work all of his life…since we first started performing as the ability fourJackson 5.  He quickly learned talent alone means nothing.  It’s what you do with it that really matters.  What are you doing to make things better for other people?  In grasping this, Michael found his purpose…entertain and educate at the same time.  Michael grew to understand why the world is in the state it is.  He would ask WHY, but not get trapped in trying to find reasons for each and every problem.  His aim was finding SOLUTIONS.  His message was about SOLUTIONS.  Michael’s day-to-day thought process was:  How do I make the world a better place.  He dedicated his existence to responding to this question and to giving voice to those who can’t speak for themselves.  If someone is hungry, give them food…but also help them become self-sufficient.  Michael taught us when you do good you start with an individual, then move onto a family, a neighborhood, a village, a nation.”

Innovation is enormously liberating.  Michael’s capacity for a challenge was limitless.  Scheduled only by destiny, his beating pulse echoed around the globe.  As one who when seeing a burning building, runs into the fire to rescue others, Michael’s artistic catalog defines the 80/20 rule…we of the 80 stand up for the 20.  His work excites us, moves us to tears, makes the blood rush to our heads…our souls sigh.  Like no other artist before or since, his mark on the world of entertainment introduced new language to the conversation.  We are captivated, instructed, inspired, only seven

“Nowhere will his contribution be more obvious and his influence more strongly felt than in the world of dance.  No choreographer of the last 30 years has been unaware of Jackson’s achievement.  He rewrote the vocabulary of dance for everyone, from kids competing in talent shows to royal ballets of Europe.  If the dance establishment did not often acknowledge his influence, it was because there was no need.  His shapes, his moves were everywhere.  Nijinsky and Nureyev also died young.  They, too, were transcendent dancing boys, but chose to interpret the choreography supplied to them.  By contrast, Michael Jackson’s art was astonishingly innovative.  No one could dance like him until he showed them how…and then, they were never as good as he was.  His concept of the dance was utterly 20th century, extravagantly multi-dimensional.  Nijinsky may have been the greatest Spectre de la Rose, Nureyev, the greatest Corsair, but these 2 candles pale in the light of Jackson’s blazing star.  The surprise is not that we have lost him, but that we ever had him at all.”

Germaine Greer  Writer and Art Criticaccept fourteen

In a world that is often a part of the dumbing down, cut and paste cycles of the day, Michael Jackson appeals to our intelligence.  Our consciences grow under his tutorials of love.  Never accepting a “duck and cover” mentality, he told truth to power.  Undeterred by greed and bullying agenda, understanding that the world is a dangerous and unpredictable place…knowing that he must lead, he warned us against feeding the hand that bites us…those who create the crisis of the hour.  His values, what he devoutly believed in, didn’t shift with threatening winds.  His professional ethics, his intensely driven work, his pioneering spirit in all levels of artistry, and his fierce belief in what we can achieve together, provide continuous threads of revelation…pivotal to all.for michael

“I think he was an angel sent to us, and I think we might have to reflect on how well we took care of him.  People say that the people around him were bad and they didn’t do right by him…but, I think it’s a collective too, because I can’t remember the last time or any other artist who attracted so much energy and projected that much power…that was that creative and affected so many people…was such a diplomat for America and such a champion of the American culture and African-American people worldwide.  People wanted to move to America because of Michael Jackson.  Industry changed, the music industry changed due to Michael Jackson.  That is a gift to us…and, I’m concerned that maybe the Good Lord may not send another one, because we didn’t take good care of Michael.”

Wesley Snipesadore eighteen

“Everything is made of the past, even the future.”  Natalie Barney’s words ring in our ears.  Destiny was revealed in one that was born to win, one who made the invisible visible.  We are prompted to ponder the possibilities in our own glorious moments.  Michael taught us that there are moral imperatives:  abolish discrimination in our hearts and minds, the truth is our salvation, without faith we are lost, LOVE is the answer.

Holding us together with both hands, Michael Jackson is our window, opening to the fresh air of possibilities we never imagined.  Living life out loud, his light could not be denied in this difficult world, for he embraced injury and turned it into stellar art.  When lost in Michael’s eyes, our vision is made more acute, our empathy for the vulnerable defined.

We write to tell the truth, possessing the miracle of  knowing.  Michael’s stories surround us for we have made the conscious choice to understand the greater truth that stands behind his art.  At the center are these tenets:  God chose Michael to give all he had  to show the world how to love ~God chose Michael to lead us to do the same.  With his perspective, guidance and velocity, we hear what we need to hear and say what we need to say.  An energy never overdrawn, Michael sings and dances across the planet for a higher purpose, rekindling inner lights which produce miraculous results.  His music, performance, image and life choices are on another level of self-expression which reaches inward for answers.  There is no ego in it, for ego hates being channeled, wanting to take credit, ill-defining rather than thirteen

Everything is important until it isn’t.  When Michael’s truths are known to an entire world, every foe vanquished and, Michael no longer being punished for things he didn’t do…our thoughts of yesterday fuel our hopes for tomorrow.

“If the real story were actually released into the culture…the fans would have some hope.  If the whole sorry mess were exposed for what it was and the world was truly informed about the truth of this story of Michael, and an acknowledgment was made of the damage, the fans could begin normal grieving.  And eventually they would heal.”

Michael saw beauty in all…the old, the young, the ill.  He found a positive in the worst suffering.  He saw no barriers for love.  His artistry held a mirror up to all manner of human struggle and triumph.  The torch of creative spirit that lived within Michael has been passed to us…the music of life.

“Michael was good at bracketing.  He’d slip into serious adult mode in a flash when business was being discussed.  He was a wise man-child.  When finished discussing business issues, he could easily and quickly slip back into play mode.  On the positive side, his childlike persona gave him fluid access to the creative part of his mind.  He could play with musical ideas easily and maintain a sense of curiosity and wonder, making his own rules.  I think he found a way of being that was satisfying and immensely productive.”

“I love experienced people.  I love people who are phenomenally talented.  I love people who’ve worked so hard and been so courageous, and are leaders in their fields.  For me to meet somebody like that, and to learn from them, and share words with them…to me, that’s magic.”

We have learned that adversity allows stories to resonate.  We have seen that there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. (MLK)  Each day, we accept the challenge to stop the ignorance in our defense of Michael Jackson’s life and legacy, each of us turning on lights in darkened rooms.  Blessed with a burden that is equal in beauty and blessing, we witness for a man who saw the world the way it could be, taking on authority, with  complete understanding that nothing strengthens authority so much as silence. (Leonardo DaVinci)   With his heroic heart, he sought, he found, never to yield.

Our journey is both visceral and academic.  We accumulate knowledge.  With understanding comes a perceptive awareness leading us toward enlightenment.  It is complicated in the extreme, yet simple in design:  We witness.  We love.  We share. Life can neither be ennobled or enriched by hatred or revenge. (RFK)  This is not about revenge toward those whose bad ideas sink under their own weight…whose false nightmare scenarios die with the shame of betrayal.  We accept that many remain steadfast in their determination to discredit all that Michael achieved.  Michael’s artistry, his life choices, his business acumen, his musical and creative genius are unequivocal.  There is no one like him.  There never will be.  Michael’s art, like an invisible tissue, wraps itself around us.  We live it with him.  It stays within us.

~I love you.  Nothing and nobody, not even time, will change that~

Life is paradoxical.  Feeling the loss of someone we love more than ourselves juxtaposed with a sense of power that comes from knowledge, we are steadfast.  There are days when it is more difficult to repel the negativity found in the words:  Life is a betrayal.  Clearly, we see betrayal when Michael’s wishes are ignored, his visionary business acumen thwarted, his life story twisted and turned for profit, even to include his beloved pets, his profound desire to reach out to those suffering from violence turned into a comedy, with a white man in the leading role.  Some may say we live with alight threefalse hope…that respect and the dignity of his character, lived each day on a world stage, will never be presented honestly to the world.  Is it possible to have a hero without a villain?  Truly, Michael was blessed with more than his share of adversaries.  They live and breathe yet today, many cloaked in the word:  Friend.  And then, we are gifted the Off The Wall Documentary…and, we feel the glow.asap four

Michael told us that it is how the story ends that is important.  In Wayne Dyers’ words:  Be strong by bending, keeping radical humility as we see everything as miraculous.  Our miracle lies in witnessing with amplified memories.  Our Maestro leads the way.  Bonded together, engraved in our hearts, we face what scares us…we dance and sing, we paint and write…transparent in claiming the glory for Michael.  For, in doing that…the glow illuminates the world.


“He liked to see people do well and he liked to use his reputation and resources to help people with disabilities, children from the inner city who grew up in poverty and violence.  He liked to see people happy.  He could have taken his wealth and prestige and not deal with the kids, not give to worthy causes.  He could have been purely selfish if he wanted, but it was not what he chose to do.  He really wanted to make a difference.  He wanted to bring people of all races, all religions, and all nationalities together.  You can see it in his music.  You can see it in the way he lived.”savior thirteen

Tom Mesereau

“We wrote a lot of screenplays.  My dad taught me how to write scripts, helped me to unlock my thinking, with the right side of my brain.  We watched the sound afterwards and he would show how the sound could actually make or break a movie.  My work ethics I learned from my dad.  My dad was always optimistic.”

“It is the light that attracts us, like moths to a streetlight.  We want that light and yet we don’t realize that what we are seeking is God.  Michael had that light within him because he allowed God to work through him.  He was a vehicle of light in that way.”

“In 2002, a woman named Marjorie, who was receiving chemotherapy treatment at the time, was waiting in Pasadena for the American Bandstand 50th Anniversary taping.  A gathering of fans was very fortunate to be very close to Michael for some moments.  He accepted the artwork Marjorie had made for him and then, to her surprise, he reached out and pulled her into a tight hug and whispered, ‘You should have stayed home.  You look very sick.’  This is but one example of the caring gestures so many received.  How many celebrities would notice and care and hold her in their arms without receiving word about her condition?  But then, Michael had seen enough sick and dying children in his life to know what someone in the midst of chemo looks like.  And, he cared.”

“That’s a Glowing Soul when you can just listen and feel the words shine into minds and hearts.  It’s what I find about Michael’s music and lyrics…they glow because they come straight from the heart.  We can feel it when it happens.  Glow cannot be made…it creates itself because it comes from the right place deep within a true loving and kind soul.”


“When Michael was on stage, he was total energy…so much energy…well, did you know, he glowed.”  Orianthi  “So, it is true what Orianthi said about him glowing.  He glowed.  He could light up a room, a stage, an arena.  You could be standing in a room alone and with no sound, he would enter, and the feeling in the room changed.  You could just feel him.  You could have your back turned to him and you knew he was there, with no words.  He lit up the room.  I pictured Michael and his beautiful face and I know my eyes were wide open as I blurted out…OH, MY GOD!  HOW CAN A PERSON DO THAT!  Only God could have done that to Michael.”

Believing that past is prologue, we have come to a place where each lustrous soliloquy Michael uttered has opened a portal, leading us to something that is bigger than ourselves.  “There is only one way to avoid criticism:  Do nothing.  Say nothing. Be nothing.” (Aristotle)  Michael chose to be SOMETHINGWe have been tasked to do the same.  Every time he was hit, he stood back up again.  So they hit him harder.  Michael defines the Standing Man. (Bridge of Spies)  And in standing, the waves of thought in his head gain power as they move to our shores.  “Conformity is like a blanket that leaves your feet cold.” (Dead Poets’ Society)  Instead, Michael lived deliberately, strikingGLOW SIX out to find new ways to reinvent our world toward one end:  Heal the suffering.  There is great difficulty in maintaining strong beliefs in the face of conformity.  Swimming upstream, Michael stirred status quo waters.  Rarely passing open windows, always creating new paths, Michael saw no accidents, only opportunities and potential.  Michael never fled the battle field, making love a weapon against any evil.  The heat from the glow of his actions has created a Love Movement unparalleled, compelling us to realize our strengths as we become the people he envisioned us to be.GLOW EIGHT

“The power of the play goes on and you may contribute a verse.  What will your verse be?”

~Don’t grieve…anything you lose comes round in another form~


The strength of Michael’s glow is our saving grace.  When first the warmth of his light wraps itself around us, we are unable to live another day without him.  We need his heat, feeling alive with beauty, passion and love.  With this light of knowledge, we search for the verse we will add to this glorious Michael Jackson Symphony of Hearts.  Our union arises from a common purpose, singular interests, and devoted service.

~Nothing is impossible~GLOW TEN

~Dreams really do come true~

“Love, Work!  Work, Love!”


Resplendent, emitting visual light, filled with emotion, aglow with purpose, Michael invites us to seize each day, every opportunity, as we feel his imposing appearance just up ahead.  Armed with total commitment, we sing and dance with glee, research and gather knowledge to educate the world, offer respect and tribute for one who has earned it unconditionally.  We turn to Michael’s artistry when facing life’s hardships.  We paint, draw, play, write, share loving and life-saving memories, bestow beauty at Michael’s resting place.  Asking the question:  WHAT MORE CAN I GIVE…we turn our energies and gifts to continuing Michael’s work in rescuing children from poverty and hunger.  We bring to reality Michael’s dreams of homes for children, education for their minds and, showing them our unconditional love.  We search the GLOW SEVENworld for causes that Michael believed in…and then, with devotion, try to make each one  a reality.  With hearts beating as one, we defend Michael’s life and legacy, seeking justice.  This is the nature of our work.  We can because we know the truth.  With determination, we will keep asking the same questions until we get the answers we are looking for…and then, we will say Thank You! (Thank you, Beloved Gene and Judy)

The global impact of Michael Jackson is unparalleled with a LOVE MOVEMENT like no GLOW SIXTEENother.  His Glow is felt by hundreds of millions of people spanning the planet…every age, color, race and culture.  His history is prelude to a better world for today.  He has enlightened us, empowered our days, filling our minds with dreams.  In times of crisis, character is defined.  We understand what the definition is…we are the storytellers.

“Prince, I wish for you to learn about perseverance and confidence and the true meaning of success…which is LOVE.

How does one throw dance into the lives of multitudes?  How does one bring curve to the straight lines that cripple so many?  How does one become a tangible part of the lives of people from different cultures, all ages and religions and colors?  How does one inspire seeds to unfold into flowers?  There is around Michael Jackson a light which radiates delicious opportunity, bringing personal human stories to the big stage with textures that translate into pure soul.  His musical and visual landscapes have left so many eager vessels, ready to receive and share what he has bequeathed to the world.  The good in his actions lasts.  We are magnetically drawn, as the messages of God areart only two revealed.  Michael did not dream on a budget.  Although many, trapped in their imaginations with no way out, held onto the “candle-snuffing word just” (Finding Neverland), Michael spread his wings and taught us how to fly.  It was never just an empty promise or illusion.  ~What you believe you become~ No matter the volume of those who “enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought” (JFK), we have become addicted to the light, understanding that the deeper the feeling, the greater the only seven

“Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their peers, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society.  Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.  Yet, it is the one essential vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.”

Robert Kennedy

Michael Jackson’s spiritual health often was shown in his capacity for enthusiasm.  As he spoke to Prince, he helped his young son realize the value of confidence and perseverance.  Along with his three children, we all feel Michael watching over our dreams, his glowing light leading from the back, as all good leaders do. Our fight to defend Michael Jackson is not over because we live in a world which often reflects Eckhart Tolle’s words:  “There’s a huge amount of suffering that is generated not by the actual challenges of life, but by the fictitious problems the mind generates.”

~I will always be Peter Pan in my heart~Michael Jacksonart only four

Michael’s irrepressible youth powered a light, enveloping him, and electrifying ours.  Genuine and of pure intent, we see the gateway standing wide open.  As we look through, the paths ahead provide the realities of suffering and pain, the magnificence of imagination and wonderment, the tapestry of our unique gifts, opportunities to reach our potential…and the blueprint for all:  LOVE.

There was a time when I was alone

Nowhere to go and no place to call home

My only friend was the man in the moon

And even sometimes he would go away too

Then one night, as I closed my eyes

I saw a shadow flying high

He came to me with the sweetest smile

Told me he wanted to talk awhile

He said, “Peter Pan-that’s what they call me.

I promise that you’ll never be lonely.”

And ever since that day…

I am a lost boy from Neverland

Usually hanging out with Peter Pan

And when we’re bored we play in the woods

Always on the run from Captain Hook

“Away from all reality.”art only twelve

Neverland is a home to lost boys like me

And lost boys like me are free.

He sprinkled me in pixie dust and told me to believe

Believe in him and believe in me.

Together we will fly away in a cloud of green

To your beautiful destiny

As we soared above the town that never loved me

I realized I finally had a family.

Soon enough we reached Neverland

Peacefully, my feet hit the sand

And ever since that day…

Today’s world can feel out of control with the loudness of closed-minded people whose mouths are always open, thinking that value comes by turning up the volume.  They have yet to learn that when you judge another you do not define them, you define yourself.  If we allow the twisting of reality to overtake us, we are faced with a kind of adore nineteenbondage, subjecting us to external forces that, if allowed, enslave.  Our activities are hampered to the point of confinement, creativity stolen.  And so we ask, are there treasures in these struggles?  How can we break free?  Who will come to our rescue?  Do we abandon all hope and surrender? 

Yet again we have been tasked with choosing counter strategies, as a disrespectful andadore seventeen untrue story enters breaking news cut and paste headlines.  With a false story portraying Michael’s movements after 9/11, and the casting of a white actor, we find ourselves once again asking…what sort of a world is this?  Will we find our greatness in the courage to overcome yet another obstacle in our efforts to preserve and protect his life and legacy.  Wayne Dyer said that what comes out of you when you are squeezed is what is inside of you.

“The more I’ve studied Michael Jackson and his work, the more convinced I am that he was a man of tremendous courage and deep psychological insight, fiercely committed to social change, wryly funny even during the most difficult times, and an artist to the very core of his being.  He was everything in terms of art, and the transformative power of art.  We have no unmediated access to the world, we can only access the world through our senses and perceptions, and art has the ability to challenge and change those adore eighteenperceptions.  That is a tremendous power and Michael Jackson understood that better than any other artist of his time.  He developed an artistic response that challenges our most fundamental beliefs about race and identity, and has changed us and our culture in ways we have not yet begun to measure.  He developed an artistic response that shakes the foundations of perception itself, and challenges some of our basic assumptions about how we see, interpret, and make sense of the world. That is the work of a powerful artist. adore fourteen

“To me, Michael Jackson embodies passion, energy, mystery, compassion, complexity, brilliance, creativity, wonder, tragedy and love.  His art wasn’t meant to only entertain (though that was part of it).  He aimed broader and deeper than most artists.  His artistic legacy to me has to do with how he tried to use his art to re-imagine the world…and, how he fused and stretched and reinvented so many forms to that end.”

Taking exception to Dodinsky’s words ~Sometimes distancing yourself from an argument is the best form of rebuttal~ we find ourselves in a constant state of reachingas if four for the wider canvas.  Also at odds with F. Scott Fitzgerald, we do not see Michael in  ~Show me a hero and I’ll show you a tragedy.  Instead, a thorough study of the life and legacy of the man produces fascinating insights calling upon us to be prepared for greatness of mind.  It is a hero’s triumph over tragedy, for you see, Michael Jackson is an unparalleled influence in our world.  Once introduced to the artistry, it becomes a part of you like nothing else can.  His capacity to produce emotion and intimacy of heart  upon others achieves even greater effect when led by circumstances in his personal life.  He chose to make a path rather than following a trail, which meant reaching into uncharted territories, challenging the status quo, raising the level of debate in the world…and understanding full well the meaning of Socrates:  When theas is three debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.  Michael was willing to offer himself up for the greater good, winning the debate…knowing the price.  That level of commitment has influenced masses of people of all ages and cultures and colors and religions, inspiring voices around the world to take on the messages Michael lived.  Michael Jackson’s relevancy reaches beyond now and forevermore.

The range of Michael’s genius includes musical composition and songwriting,  vocal landscape, rhythm mastery, poetry, prose, original dance and choreography, performance and visionary and creative storytelling, humanitarian outreach and Utopian blueprint.  His fertile mind did not grasp defeat, but rather saw opportunity and potential in people who could achieve this better world.  He guides us with his God-given gifts, chosen for a single purpose…to show the world how to is two

“Michael wanted to revolutionize the way tours were being done.  He was always thinking like a great producer, too.  He was telling us we needed to design a way to maximize the audience that could see him with less travel time for him and the company.  So, he proposed setting up the show for 2 or 3 months in a single location, make that portal, as opposed to being on a plane, jumping from city to city twice a week.  Just as he did on the History Tour, when we went to Northern Africa.  The idea was to get up in a region that was struggling and could really benefit economically from having us there.  Everything Michael did came from a place of love and commitment to do good.  That’s the way he was with us working on the show.  You felt like you were as lovebeing nurtured, constantly stimulated and encouraged to come up with the best ideas in a collective situation.  And that’s where his art was coming from.  His concept was not just to make a great song you could dance to.  His way was to reel you in and get your attention so then you’d get the deep message.  That was the science to it.  That’s why his music transcended generations, appealed to children and older people…everyone.”

“Michael Jackson did something that no one else in history has managed…he connected with people of every level imaginable…all over the world.  He seemed to speak to people at their very core and achieved the impossible.  He reached people on a deep emotional level.  And that is what any great artist or showman dreams of doing.  That is why Michael Jackson was so special  to me.”

“As I think  back to all the musicians I’ve done music videos for, I cannot think of anybody that has had that electrifying a presence when they kick in.”

Nick Brandt, Fine Art Photographer and Film Director

“You give of your talents, of your ability.  The talent that was given you by the Heavens.  That’s why we’re here, to bring a sense of escapism in a time of need.  If you’re a painter, you paint.  If you’re a sculptor, you sculpt.  If you’re a writer, you write.  If you’re a songwriter, you write songs.  If you’re a dancer, you dance.  You give people some love and some bliss and some escapism and show them that you truly care from the heart.  And, that you are there for them.  YOU ARE asap fiveTHERE FOR THEM.  And, that’s what I did.  It’s an important thing.”

Michael Jackson October 2001

“Let’s take this love and give it  to all  the people everywhere, in every corner of the earth.  And, that’s what we can give.  And, that will make the difference.  That will make the change.  It’s very important.”IN LOVE ELEVEN
