This is by way of a letter, since it is more appropriate as a vehicle for paying tribute to the passing of a soul whose life was marred in many ways by healing issues that gained prominence in the eyes of the world, but whose spirit remained pure, loving, and joyful, despite the difficulties of the outer self.
Most embodied souls live with that complexity of manifestation - a part that remains pure and bright, and other parts that are colored by incomplete development, limitation, or distortion of their true essence.
And so because of his influence on global consciousness through songs of love and peace such as "Heal the World" and "We are the World" which affected an entire generation, we can acknowledge the difficulties that he himself brought into being through his own words and actions, while at the same time expressing gratitude for one who came into incarnation in order, among other things, to help heal the world.
While many are looking back at the life of this pop icon, focus of admiration and contempt, and musical genius, we who loved his spirit can look forward to what and where he is now and where he is going. Having remained inwardly connected to the other dimensions of life and spirit, Michael Jackson's transition is likely to be easier than most. Perceiving himself inwardly to be Spirit, he can let go of the embodied state more quickly and rejoice in his greater freedom, released from the burdens of self and the questions of identity that were so much a part of his life.
We, who appreciate his beautiful and pure being, can rejoice in his new freedom with him, for once out of the body he can become the largeness of who he is and was, and move, all the while dancing, into greater freedom and joy. Blessings and Amen.
