Farewell to Michael Jackson

July 8th, 2009

lilliesI’d like to bid farewell to Michael Jackson even though I didn’t personally know him.  Like almost everyone else, however, I’ve been affected by the passing of a superstar:  Michael Joseph Jackson.  May he rest in peace. 


Take away the unfortunate life choices, the human form that we so liked to criticize, the gossip, the speculation (yada, yada, yada – enough already), and we have the passing of another spiritual being who took the human journey and graced the planet earth with us for fifty years.  Now his spirit is free to continue the journey, and it finally gets to be a private one between Michael and his source.


I’m not going to do a rundown for you here about all of Michael Jackson’s legendary musical talentand accomplishments, his superstar highlights, his personal choices.  You can read other types of articles for those details if you’re so inclined.  It won’t be hard to find them.  Just turn on your computer, your TV or any media source. 


Part of my intention in this short article is a little selfish.  I’d like release an intention out into the universe to this effect:  When I’ve moved on from this particular spiritual jaunt, I hope that those I’ve touched will remember my goodness and be kind enough and forgiving enough to forget  the bad.  Having intentioned that, it’s only fair then that I extend that same courtesy to everyone else (and everyone means everyone…no picking and choosing, right?).


So here’s my mini-tribute for what it’s worth.  From one spiritual being to another, from one struggling human to another, from me to the universe, I bid Michael Joseph Jackson  farewell from this journey called life.  May he find peace, joy and fulfillment in the next.  It was nice sharing the planet with “The Man In The Mirror” for a brief time in history.


Life is good!  Namaste.  –Lori

  1. Lori, this is a beautiful tribute. We are all spirits on this human journey. We all struggle from time to time. In my youth MJ was a big part of my life…his music spoke to me. Thankfully, his music will live on! I do hope that he is finally in a more peaceful place…moon walkin’ in the universe 🙂

  2. Thanks Caroline. I like the image of moon walkin’ in the universe. Puts a smile on my face.

  3. Nice tribute and nice thoughts. You have a very posative outlook on life!

  4. Thanks for visiting and commenting. The positive outlook is something I actually put daily effort into cultivating. I wasn’t always this way, and it doesn’t come naturally…yet.
