Posts Tagged ‘Michael Jackson’

Slide1

We spend our whole lives trying to seek love, to define and express love and hopefully to become love in the present moment. But turbulent times can turn us away from love and bring up our fears.  Fears change our actions and we have great difficulty forgiving those who harm us.  When we release our fears and anger and move our thoughts to connecting to the feelings of our heart, we begin to have the awareness that love is dwelling…always…in our heart.  Then forgiveness makes sense and all our senses respond in a new way to love.

All we have to do is tap into this loving energy, embrace and allow love to become the way of our being in our daily life.  This transformation into love consciousness is what each of us is here to do.  Michael Jackson understood about staying ‘in love’…with ourselves, with others, with nature and all the universe!  John Denver felt that love is an everlasting memory that shelters, embraces and at times is turbulent but love is in all the elements…it is everywhere and always there for us.

Love By Michael Jackson

“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub-you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.

Some people spend their lives looking for love outside themselves. They think they have to grasp it in order to have it. But love slips away like that wet bar of soap.

Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful and new.  It’s the juice and energy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything.

As long as love is in my heart, it’s everywhere.”  from Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson

 

John Denver – Perhaps Love…

John Denver also sought for the meaning love. One of my favourite songs about the meaning of love was sung by John Denver is “Perhaps Love”  This video show John performing in London where he explains the transformation that took place for him as his thoughts transformed from sadness to love and these words and music came to him while he was driving his car in California.

I hope you will take time to listen to his story and song~

 John Denver – Perhaps Love Lyrics
 
Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

 

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

Songwriters: J DENVER
Peacefully with love,
Jane

imagesAs I watched the memorial tribute to Michael Jackson today, I realized, once again, that true peacemakers often have the most difficult journeys.  Jesus’ life was full of drama but he remained calm admist the turmoil.  I’m not sure how tranquil Michael was, but he was not deterred by the outer world to assist those in need.  He not only gave millions to many causes and organizations around the world, but provided us with music that will live on to remind us of  his vision of ” One World”.   Here’s “We are the World” that was produced long before Live Aid.  He saw the power of music to bring people together and use it to transend our thoughts and open our hearts.  I remember him saying in an interview, “Why can’t people love one another?”  Those who knew him spoke of his gentle soul who always said to them “I love you, more.”

This is a wonderful tribute to Michael from prisoners in a prison in the Phillippines http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK25cfzdTTg

I will miss you Michael… a beautiful peacemaker, a star of love and a mystery that reminded us to look in the mirror, to look within, to become the innocence within.

 You inspire me to be me…I will not forget you, nor will the world.

We Are ONE,

Jane
