Heartbreak Hotel: Scattering Stars like Dust – It was with great shock that I received the news of the tragic deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett on Thursday, June 25, 2009. While their deaths are heartbreaking, the lessons for the living remain; live life fully, embrace yourself/loved ones, share your gifts and remember your blessings with a spirit of gratitude.

I grew up with Michael Jackson’s music from the early days when he was a member of the Jackson 5. I remember watching him prance around on stage; focused, supremely talented and mirthful. How could someone so young have such charismatic star power? He had a unique voice, dance moves and a strong musical message. Who could ever forget A.B.C…?

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Rumi

My memories of the early days of the Jackson Five are tied to their performances and music; they were consummate entertainers, their music had catchy, bubblegum, teenybopper tunes that kept everyone dancing. As time went by, “The Jacksons'” matured, their music evolved and when Michael finally ventured off on his own, it was explosive… Heartbreak Hotel was always my top favorite even though I loved many songs in his recordings. Michael had an impressive musical body of work; it was personal, passionate, political, and always inspired.

“Still, the Final Grace was left: For all of existence and Hafiz to blend and to find that I am every pillow offering comfort to each mind and Foot.” ~ Hafiz

I remember the first time I saw Charlie’s Angels on TV with Farrah and her partners dashing around, solving cases and capturing criminals. It was a step in a different direction for women as characters with authority and while they had their share of detractors, the overall message was a positive one. Farrah moved on after the first season to a career that included high moments; especially in her roles in “Extremities” and “The Burning Bed.”

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

This is a shocking and massive dual loss for fans of both celebrities. These were people who seemingly had everything yet had their share of pain and suffering; Farrah handled her battle with cancer with grace and a clarity that included documenting part of the complicated journey to seek/receive treatment. Michael handled his life long childhood scars by sublimating the pain through touring around the world, passionately sharing his musical genius, turning to his spiritual faith and giving much to charity. Michael’s “Thriller” captures that genius and intertwines the dark with light…

“We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust” ~ Rumi

When the lives of deceased loved ones are celebrated, we often hear the reminder that we come into the world naked and alone and leave the same way. I believe we come into the world with angels who escort us back to God; so we are never truly alone on the physical or spiritual plane.

Rest In Peace Michael and Farrah; we are all stars scattered across the earth to bring joy and gifts for a set time. Some bring more and others less yet all gifts have merit and touch lives: I send peace, sympathy and love to the families and loved ones of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. Our Life is a journey rift with mysteries, challenges and blessings. Our love carries us forward and then scatters to touch other souls; that’s the way love is/goes…

    Michael Jackson was a victim of abuse who never got the help he needed. The saddest part of this whole thing is that some people are actually happy he’s dead. MJ endured being accused of pedophilia; now something of a mystery of the universe. Some even celebrate his death and cast aspersions which is self-righteous, arbitrary stupidity. Rip MJ and Farrah (who has been unfortunately eclipsed).
