Nothing like music to get one’s emotions stoked. Michael Jackson was such a talented sensitive soul.
Michael Jackson | Earth Song
Well, from what I remember from Michael Jackson’s posthumous movie, This Is It, Michael thought we needed to stop the devastation immediately or else we’re definitely effed for good. Remember, this song was released back in 1995. That’s over 15 years ago. Has anyone seen how the rain forests, et al have changed since then?
When you think about what we’ve be doing, the question comes up – Do we deserve to keep on going?
The entity to ask this to isn’t so much each other than it is our home, Mother Earth. A sincere apology is probably a good start followed by a commitment to change for the better. Maybe it’s already out of our hands and She’s retaliating slowly but surely. It could be that it’s all a part of some elaborate program. I’m not one to put much stock into 2012 from a prophecy standpoint, unless you consider the self-fulfilling kind where you give up and are resolved to experience a certain outcome.
It’s as if we are at war with the earth. But we are not separate from it, therefore we are really at war with ourselves. We deny our connection to each other, the animals, the plants, the ocean, the earth, the stars.
We are all one, yet most of us live in the false idea of separation, largely in part to the wonderful nature of duality. That’s the secret. Duality exists for us to appreciate the unlimited variety of expression of life. But what we need to remember that above the duality is the oneness that encompasses all.
The ALL is in all of us and we are all part of the ALL. The separation is only perception from each of our limited consciousness.
I’ll post a similar topic in a few days regarding this subject.
some background info on the video [taken from Wikipedia]
The video was filmed in four geographic regions. The first location was the Amazon Rainforest, where a large part was destroyed a week after the video’s completion. Natives of the region appeared in the video and were not actors. The second scene was a war zone in Croatia, with famous Serbian-born Croatian actor Slobodan Dimitrijević and the residents of the area. The third location was Tanzania, which incorporated scenes of illegal poaching and hunting into the video. No animals were harmed in the making of the “Earth Song”, as the footage came from documentary archives. However, a poacher killed an elephant within a mile of the shot. The final location was in Warwick, New York, where a safe forest fire was simulated in a corn field
