This is Your Time to Shine & Take it To Infinity!
I love to over indulge in Michael Jackson. MJ’s music colors my soul; it makes every morsel of my being completely and deeply alive. Seriously, my energy level goes off the charts! No cup of Joe can compete. When I watch his music videos I can’t stop (MJ is the one that sang “Don’t Stop to You Get Enough.”) Well I surely haven’t had enough. Michael Jackson radiates a FEELING that no other has ever done. He is all about FEELING and feeling GOOD. Maybe this is why I relate to him so much. If you watch his performances the audience is overjoyed with emotions, they are feeling it. From dancing to tears to dropping on the ground not only in America but also, also around the globe. MJ is global and the King of Pop!
My blog will not serve Michael Jackson to the fullest. My words will simply be in relation to him the phenomenon. In the last week I went to see “This Is It” not once but three times and I think I might have a fourth and more in me. And, hell YES I can’t wait to own this movie and truly hope it goes on to DVD.
Oprah Winfrey said it so perfectly, “Michael Jackson teaches us how to be an artist in our own life”, and she is so correct. I had no clue why his tour was called “This Is It” and the magnitude of the meaning until I watched the movie. The message of “This Is It” is about saving our precious planet. I can only imagine what a huge impact his fifty sold out concert tour could have done to influence people, and inspire them to take action to save our planet at a global level. What a huge loss.
When I watched the movie it brought tears and resurfaced so many memories, brought me back to age thirteen. I owned MJ pants (you know the kind with the zippers), totally freaking out when his music came on the radio at that age, my first love. I thought about watching him perform Billie Jean on TV at the Music Awards in the 80’s, and I will never forget the first media coverage in my teens when he appeared in Europe and people where sobbing, crying, and falling to the ground because they saw him.
Here is how “This Is It” has impacted me:
Now, more than ever I want to be better a person today than I was yesterday.
It is totally COOL to be effortless, completely loving, passionate, and precise.
Michael said in the movie “Take it to Infinity” life gets big and happens when you completely participate in the creation of your life.
That when we judge without knowing we cut ourselves off from greatness and inspiration.
I found out what it really means save the planet. Human beings make a difference when they unite.
When you do what you love there is no stopping you! Magic happens. Your tribe will be present along side. This is so clear in the movie. One of my favorites parts of the movie is when MJ was side by side with the female guitarist and he said to her “This is your time to shine,” than he said a few minutes later “this is your time to shine and we will all be right here with you” BEAUTIFUL.
That full participation in the creation of your own life is so juicy good!
The time is now, and there is no better time in the world.
Have FUN doing what you LOVE.
Don’t stay in negative emotion stay in the L to the O to the V to the E!!!
Value. Choices and options are always available. I suggest asking yourself what choice will add the greatest value in your life. Than make that choice you won’t go wrong. In the scene with the bulldozer MJ nailed it! He knew exactly which choice would add the greatest value. I had goose bumps all over me.
Holding hands in a circle with your tribe, setting the intentions, acknowledging there is love and knowing has a huge positive impact to the human soul.
Respect is highly contagious. Always respect yourself.
FEELING. I love to FEEL GOOD and always opt for it. MJ defines feeling. I love the scene when he said to Kenny O “I don’t have to see the backdrop, I will just feel when it is gone. “ When you feel it you own it!
My heart melted in sound of Michael Jackson's laughter when the keyboard director said “I’m going to put a little more booty in it!” Michael’s giggle was precious. So this is how I will live each day putting a little more booty in it, connecting more to what inspires me and brings me fully alive, and being the artist of my amazing life.
Long Live the King! The Love Will Never End….
