~Gratitude is the heart’s memory~
“WITH EVERY BREATH HE TOOK MICHAEL INHALED THE WORLD’S SUFFERING AND EXHALED PURE LOVE.”
Rev. June Gatlin
“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.”
HOW WE REMEMBER…
WHAT WE REMEMBER…
WHY WE REMEMBER…
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’s 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.
~Go forth and set the world on fire~
St. Ignatius of Loyola
Loving is the only starting place there is for making our lives our own. We have found love and we can’t get enough of it. But, it goes deeper…we can’t give enough. Michael’s vision has shown us how to spend our lives for something that will outlast us. Asking us to “jump off a cliff,” we have learned that we can fly.
~That man had the force of the sun, the spotlight on him…and we were his planets spinning around his center of gravity~
Whoever sees You and doesn’t
light up with joy,
Whose jaw doesn’t drop with awe
at the sheer beauty of You,
Whose very being fails to increase in a thousand different ways,
Must be made of the cement
of a prison wall.
“He was a man of power, of positive power that brought people together. He brought people of all walks of life, all nationalities, friends and foes alike. He was healing in 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.”
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 to 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.
~The harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph
What we obtain too cheap we esteem too lightly
Tis dearness only that gives everything its value~
“THIS SENSE OF ‘WORLD IN ME’ IS HOW I ALWAYS WANT TO FEEL.
Oh, friend, I hear a dance. Will you be my partner?”
THE DREAM CONTINUES
DANCING THE DREAM…MICHAEL JACKSON
The difference between truth and myth is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. (Mark Twainism) With room for everyone, we partner with the power, turning all into blessed outreach without boundaries. “He forced rock and roll and the mainstream press to acknowledge that the biggest pop star in the world could be young and black and in doing so, he broke down more barriers than anybody.” Rolling Stone We join Michael in his fierce belief in what we can achieve together. Captivating, seismic, enduring, we follow…inhaling the suffering of children and the ecology, and exhaling our actions valued in pure love.
