For the present, we still live in the age of tragedy, the age of moralities and religions.” - Friedrich Nietzsche.
1. My somewhat less solid advice is to aim to establish a foundation of love which includes gratitude and forgiveness and to be sweet. Then, if this comes first for you through your intent and feeling, express yourself freely and hope for the best!
2. During the first week of January 2010, I received the Dangerous Remixes Collection CD in the post from Japan having found an affordable copy on Ebay. My old one gets stuck on the best track, ‘Who Is It: Moby’s Raw Mercy Dub’ which is phenomenal and certainly my favourite version of a Michael Jackson song (although it is far from my favourite MJ song. ‘Invincible’ is certainly right up there while ‘Heartbreaker’ is the one I most enjoy dancing to). I walked to the Post Office depot in the snow only to discover that it had to be collected at my local Post Office which is a 20-minute walk away (since the closer one closed down…of course). On the way, I encountered my neighbour from the house at the back. This was the first time in eleven years that I had seen him out and about anywhere (I pass his wife and daughter in the street regularly and we usually smile or greet each other…well, I say ‘usually’: she stopped for a couple of years after passing me on Halloween night dressed as Uncle Fester, with white face paint all over my bald scalp and two large black eyes!). He was surprised that I recognised him in his beanie (he didn’t stand a chance of recognising me in my furry trapper but I was crossing the road to his side anyway)
3. I would add that Michael was sweet and spiritual enough to get out of his own way. He was, as a result of this gift of tuning into a higher dimension of consciousness, free to feel and channel the music that brought joy to so many and which he could further ground so magically through dance. He was also compassionate enough to intend this very consequence. Matthew Ward said that Michael had demonstrated unconditional love throughout his life including towards his persecutors with whom he had ‘soul contracts.’ He explained that these experiences had, however, had a more stressful effect on his physical health than had been anticipated. I mention this because it does make me wonder if I myself have karmic soul contracts with my antagonists here. To me, if feels more like I have agreed to these experiences at a soul level both for my own growth and to aid collective society in some way but that I may not have a karmic bond with these specific people. Just certain issues to resolve and blockages to shift/emotions to release.
