You know, I don't know what to think about that question. I still have to believe that he wouldn't want us saying he's Christ.
See, I'm with ya. I don't lump Jesus Christ and Michael Jackson into one being. Not by any stretch of imagination. However, I think it's fine to want to strive be like Christ.
I don't like to say "he's my personal Jesus". Because to me Jesus is there, Michael Jackson is there.
But one has to admit he didn't entirely shy away from the subtle suggestion of such things in some ways. I think he felt deeply he was on a mission, he knew it. And considering the incredible magnitude of worldwide success, God only knows what all he wondered about himself. You know... who am I? Am I... ??? Man, oh man, I always wished for private conversations about that type of stuff with him! :doh: Because I was treading on creepy-religious territory in some ways since about, oh, the early 90's? Like I said, though, what I've gathered is that he's Michael, and Jesus is Jesus. But exactly who is in a broader sense, like prophet, etc? I just don't know. And deep inside I'm always afraid of making a frickin' fool out of myself while he's over there rolling his eyes, like "noooo!" :smilerolleyes:. Then I think of all the creepy-religious dreams I've had, the glowing light and feeling the energy, the resurrection themed ones, the bringing 'Christmas' to the world dreams, the running a marathon for Michael, the "heroic advent for children.com", the ... oh, on and on. I can't understand yet what it all means.
You know, I never understood the uproar over Michael standing there with extended arms in a white shirt, surrounded by children. That english dude there running onto the stage to disturb a performance of the Earth Song saying MJ is blasphemic...yikes.
Because to me it was an invitation to do the same! To embrace children etc.
I always understand these gestures as a way to encourage us to do the same, not to pretend he's Jesus.
He's also an artist, so of course he would do that in a dramatic fashion.
I loved what he said in the Sawyers interview with LMP when Sawyers accused him of megalomaniac tendencies. He just said "good, I got your attention."
When Michael Bearden said that Michael understood himself as a worker of Ascension for Mankind, it all clicked into place. I thought that for a long time, to hear that confirmed by someone else who is NOT Michael (because that taps into a lot of my experiences with Michael and Ascension has been a big thing) was incredible. Michael has pushed me to go there against my resistance, and now I know why he pushed me.
I always had a bit of "creepy religious" feeling in connection with Michael, you're not alone in that.
My biggest "creepy-religious" dream is the resurrection of Michael Jackson. I have a very vivid imagination what it is like for Michael Jackson to defy death. On the other, many religions that speak about Karma have some form of concept that a fully self-realized and enlightened being can get "off the wheel of life and death".
That an Ascended Master (New Age speak, sorry) is not bound anymore by the circle of life and death and can chose freely to enter or leave the earthly plane.
That would be my creepy-religious fantasy in which I would love to see Michael pop up in various places as a mentor, as a guru, as a teacher, like a yogi- just the way certain beings have done. I hereby write that down because miracles have to be asked for before they can be granted...allright up there, I asked. And as Michael said, "I believe in miracles and a miracle has happened tonight." Since Michael has passed, all things that I wrote down- have happened. All of them. Sometimes as simply as certain flowers. I once posted something about flowers on another board- and every.single.flower. showed up and so much more.
One night I was having these thoughts you know what started to play? "Have a little faith in me." Thank you Michael, I love you.
And again, I think it's perfectly fine to love both Jesus Christ and Michael Jackson. It's an act of LOVE and I'm grateful to feel it.
