Still Inspired by Earth Song...

And I see I am not the only one; this video was passed off to me today through a friend. I love that the original is still to this day inspiring artists to find ways to continue to spread Michael's message.

So I thought I would pass it on to you, along with the original blog written in November that was my own tribute to our Mother. If we are ever to learn to be at one with our planet and care for her as we should we must learn to be at one with and care for our fellow man.

Inspired by EARTH SONG...
She was just a child; young, innocent and pure the day she brought the flower to the man with the gun...
War had been her life, from the time of her birth her village had been occupied by foreign soldiers. They said they had come to help her village, to fight for freedom but she even in her short life had seen too much death to believe this to be true. Her heart told her that freedom was hers by right, hers by birth, hers to have and to hold through the simple act of living and loving the life she lived; she did not understand who it was she should be fighting against.
They came with their guns, their tanks, their military way of thinking; destroy or be destroyed – kill or be killed but it hurt her to bear witness to their pain. She could see it there, in their eyes, even as they strolled through the streets acting tough and brave she could see the sorrow. She could feel the anguish and she understood in her innocence that the anger came from their need to be there. They knew they should not, they knew to kill was not right and that to take any life was a crime against nature but she also knew that they were here because they believed they had to be here to protect the innocent, to protect children like her.
None of it made sense but it was the way it was and what power did a small child have to change the ways of the world...

The Ego Trip Called Poverty...

I was touring around Manila one time, minding my own business when I was approached by an elderly priest who apparently thought he had some wisdoms to share with me that were important enough to stop me in the street outside of one of the busiest shopping malls in the city. Regardless of the strangeness of the encounter (which if you have read my book, you will realize I am getting quite used to) and in spite of the fact I am not partial to men of the cloth I accepted his invitation to stop and chat a bit about God and the meaning of life. What followed was a remarkable conversation (mostly one sided) and some very unique insights into his version of the truth. He asked me a series of questions, many of which left me wondering who between us was less sane; one such question however sticks in my mind as being attached to a lesson I should never have forgotten. He asked me if I was willing to die for God, to which I answered without hesitation that yes, of course, without question. His response was not what I expected...
