I have long been aware of a connection between Michael Jackson and myself, he was raised Jehovah’s Witness as I was. When he got disfellowshipped I wasn’t allowed to listen to his music anymore. I got disfellowshipped by an elder from his congregation whose bragging rights were that he was from the congregation where Michael got disfellowshipped from. When I got a job after being on the street off and on for 5 years, it was at the Woodland Hills Whole Foods. I drove past his congregation on my way to work. I once met his brother Tito shopping there. He was rude.
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the archangel Michael incarnated as Jesus. He was named after Michael the archangel, I was named after Jesus Christ. When he died I was miserable, I cried, not because I worshipped him like his fans but because of a heart felt connection and deep understanding. I made a painting to commemorate his Mahasamahdi because, like myself, he was a Maha Jagad Guru.
Mahasamādhi (the great and final samādhi) is the act of consciously and intentionally leaving one’s body . A realized yogi (male) or yogini (female) who has attained the state of nirvikalpa samadhi, will, at an appropriate time, consciously exit from their body. This is known as mahasamadhi. This is not the same as the physical death that occurs for an unenlightened person. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahasam%C4%81dhi
I bought the Michael album after his death, which kind of sucked, there were only a few good songs on there. But recently I took a closer look at the album art, and I noticed some interesting things I hadn’t seen before. First of all it seems to be a kind of visual homage to the Beatle’s Sargent Pepper album in which the show all of the influences on the Beatle’s music. But I also noticed a kind of flow, from up and right to down and left.
On the right hand, which is Sol-ar, it says Sol-ve as in Sol-ution or Sol-vent and on the left hand it says Coagule, as in to Coagulate or Congeal. What you see is a movement and a transition from Michael from his black heritage to some manner of Shamanic death with the zombies and occult symbolism (MJ got disfellowshipped for “occult themes” in the Thriller video). Also you see a straw man of himself (Oh I wish I had a brain) crucified like Jesus with letters underneath him (INRI). Notice a rat sitting on a swing chewing bubble gum. Perhaps representing his missing childhood being stolen by someone and replacing him. A dark skinned Roman statue with Fascist, Nazi-esque, Eagle symbolism paves the way for his career. He is shown with peacock feathers behind him symbolizing pride. You see an alien space ship, ponder that Steven Spielberg never turned on Michael and both of them seem to have an intense interest in aliens, Michael did a cameo in MIB asking if he could be agent M. Notice how his right side is mostly red and black colors but that is also the side with the white cherub. Notice the bilateral symmetry in the album cover.
No notice the right side or his left side. Notice the presence of the Egyptian symbolism in his clothing that represents Osiris, the god of Life, with Isis and Nephthys embracing them in their wings. Notice a golden idol standing proudly and staunchly in defiance of his earlier self and childhood. Notice that he is praising this image of himself. Notice the cameras. Notice he is leaning left? Notice a black Peter Pan? refusing to give up on the childhood he was robbed of? Notice the Rabbit Riding a Motorcycle a Caricature of him-self, from the same video Steven Spielberg appears in? As Michael “Exits stage Left”. Notice the gavel in the tree that looks like the tree is flipping the bird? True story, my dad once gave a sermon in which he used Michael Jackson’s glove as a metaphor for showy display of one’s means of life.
From the direction in theatrical scripts: “Exit stage left“, thus marking the disappearance of a character from the stage in the normal manner.
- (idiomatic) An orderly and uneventful departure, timed so as not to detract or distract. [quotations ▼]
Notice the burning of the memories? Notice the exodus of the children? Notice the money that was created? Notice the winged male figure embracing the female figure above Africa? As though MJ is giving consolation to Janet in the Afterlife? Now if you weren’t raised Jehovah’s Witness you won’t notice how similar the art on the bottom right is to their propaganda.
Now we are going to discuss some other oddities. What appears to be our mutual obsession with King Tut. Now I had this epiphany before this album came out. This blog is named after this Image because of a shamanic experience I was having be sure to click the link and check the time stamp.
One final oddity, you will notice some similar images in his painting and mine which I only noticed a few days ago. And I know it’s from that video in which he turns into a space ship….and I know the flash is from a camera but it also means something else. It represents a star.
But it’s not just that, the predominantly red side for him is also predominantly red for me, and the predominantly green side for both of us is on the left, also the recurring depiction of the peacock as representing pride. Their is also the element of bilateral symmetry in both images.
The First 4 words of the Hebrew bible are quite significant.
“BERESHIT BARA ET ELOHIM”
This isn’t as straight forward as the English translation would make it :
“In the beginning God Created”
If you are familiar with Jewish Exegesis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardes_(Jewish_exegesis)) It doesn’t predispose itself to immediate understanding because it is supposed to be meditated on for Kabbalistic secrets.
It can be interpreted as Be Reshit, or with wisdom, Elohim. Or it can be interpreted Bara Shit, Created 6. Which is a reference to the 6 Sephira, Gevurah, Chesed, Tiphareth, Hod, Netzach, and Yesod, corresponding to the 6 days of the week, the reason that the supernal triad isn’t mentioned is because they are before creation, prior to physicality or objectivity.
So it interprets too, With Wisdom, Elohim. Or Created Six, Elohim. Not so cut and dry is it? The act of Creation was the act of the coming into being of the physical world, from the immaterial world, or in other words, the Big bang.
The word “Elohim” exists in the Hebrew as well as Muslim vocabulary.
“As-salamu alaykum (Arabic السلام عليكم)”
the typical Muslim Greeting means, “Peace to the Elohim”.
L’chaim with a similar phonology means “to life.”
Interesting and Ironic that Muslim women, Chassidic women, and Nuns cover their hair so that they will not attract the attention of the fallen angels and attract their lust. This is particularly ironic considering how much more prevalent and acceptable rape is in the Muslim culture than the other cultures, but if you had read my other pieces you would not be surprised. (https://thoughtuncommon.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/rabbi-baal-shivah-the-origins-of-islam-the-non-abrahamic-religion/)
Now according to Jewish interpretation, and Muslims claim to use the same bible as Judeo-christians while they twist the scriptures, YHWH ELOHIM represents “a complete name,” representing respectively the divine qualities of compassion and justice. Being that YHWH represents the feminine agencies of Binah and Malkuth as mother and daughter, and manifestations of one another and Tiphareth and Yesod as Elohim, their bride groom in the form of a Righteous Man or a Tzaddick.
So if, as some people claim, Allah is Elohim them even that claim is partial and not all of the God of the Judeo-christian bible, but we will see even that claim is less than accurate.
Now the Name “El” can refer to the Elves, AngEls, Elders, and what have you as the facets/faces angles/angels of God’s personality. But there is another explanation…
In the Canaanite religion, or Levantine religion as a whole, El or Il was a god also known as the Father of humanity and all creatures, and the husband of the goddess Asherah as recorded in the clay tablets of Ugarit(modern Ra′s Shamrā—Arabic: رأس شمرا, Syria).
The bull was symbolic to El and his son Baʻal Hadad, and they both wore bull horns on their headdress.He may have been a desert god at some point, as the myths say that he had two wives and built a sanctuary with them and his new children in the desert. El had fathered many gods, but most important were Hadad, Yam, andMot. ” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_(deity)
If you are familiar with my writings you know that Mohammed rebranded the ancient Persian/Babylonian child sacrifice cults of ancient Babylon bent on global domination. The Jews who separated themselves from them because they fundamentally disagreed with them were constantly being dragged back to Babylon and “re-educated”. The Babylonians, as the Muslims, have a strategy for taking over the entire world and submitting them to their Sharia law. They breed irresponsibly, (https://thoughtuncommon.wordpress.com/2014/09/14/muslims-ishmael-and-judas-iscariot-by-rabbi-baal-shiva/)
They use rich lawyers to vexatiously litigate and change your laws so that you compete on a slanted playing field and then they bring in Sharia law and establish caliphates. They train their children to only listen to their priest class, and they only have 3 books. They teach their children the time will come when they have to kill all of the jews and anybody that doesn’t submit to their ideology.
“Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani.”
Did Jesus worship Allah? I don’t know that all of Jesus meanings have been uncovered, what we do know is that Jesus despised the Babylonian Jews that practiced the Abrahamic Law Code instead of the Mosaic Law Code, so it would be very unlikely. I personally think he was asking why the angels had abandoned him, why the Elohim had abandoned him as indeed most of his disciples had abandoned him and still others abandoned him in their hearts, it must have been very trying even though he had foreseen it.
Some in the crowd who heard Jesus cry out “Eli Eli . . .” from the cross thought he was calling on Elijah. Sadly, even those Jews who thought Jesus was crying out for Elijah, had NO compassion for him, but used what they thought they heard to taunt him.
“Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, ‘This Man is calling for Elijah!’ Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink. The rest said, ‘LET HIM ALONE; LET US SEE IF ELIJAH WILL COME TO SAVE HIM.'” (Matthew 27:47-49)
“Some of those who stood by, when they heard that, said, ‘Look, He is calling for Elijah!’ Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink, saying, ‘LET HIM ALONE; LET US SEE IF ELIJAH WILL COME TO TAKE HIM DOWN.'” (Mark 15:35-36) http://www.biblestudy.org/question/meaning-of-eli-eli-lama-sabachthani-spoken-by-jesus.html
I started painting this after Michael Jackson’s untimely demise. It was devastating for me. I didn’t get to go to his funeral either, I wish I had gone because they changed their minds and let people in and I would have gotten to go in.
You see, I was raised Jehovah’s Witness. MJ and I have a connection. When he was disfellowshipped I was no longer allowed to listen to his music. My family was very strict. Peter Appleton an elder from his congregation harassed me when I was dating my first girl friend who was coming to meetings but who hadn’t been baptized. He threatened to disfellowship me if I didn’t stop seeing her. It was ironic because he had 7 ex-wives and 20 children none of whom had ever been baptized and yet he was in good standing. I sold all of my shit and disappeared to Washington state with my fiance. Things didn’t work out and I ended up on the street. I felt literally no connection with my family so I never even thought to call them. Everybody thought I was dead and I am glad. I am dead to them.
Long story short I ended up moving to Woodland Hills and I got hired at Whole Foods. On the way to work I would drive past MJ’s congregation, it was a weird coincidence. I also ran into one of his brothers, Tito, he was unpleasant.
I know that Michael was attracted to boys that age because he wanted to save himself at that age. He was sympathetic to them being a child star as he was with an overbearing father. He was trying to rescue himself by rescuing them. I know what it is like to be a misunderstood ecstatic mystic. He wasn’t trying to throw his baby over the balcony he was enthusiastic, he wanted to share his happiness with the people that loved him. He would never hurt that baby, he loved it more than his own life. He just wasn’t thinking about how he looked he was thinking about how he felt.
I feel bad for people like Michael and Tom Cruise. I think about what a man has to do to try to ensure he has access to his kids in this day and age when you are rich and powerful and male and everybody wants a piece of you. You want to be an influence in their lives. This culture hates masculinity, intelligence, and talent. We are surrounded by morons that feel thwarted by their lack of…. everything, but especially talent. It is as though they think awesomeness is a finite resource and people like us and Charlie Sheen are using too much of it.
Michael Jackson was a Maha Jagad Guru a world teacher. He touched every person in the world. He changed global culture. He was a creative Genius. He was in his way a shaktipat guru.
Light of the world is done as a visual homage to Shiva Nataraja. MJ is dancing in the sun. See Michael and I are named after the same namesake Joxua was Jesus name when he was incarnate, but Witnesses believe that before he incarnated he was the archangel Michael, so the synchronicities never really cease. I was always hoping that maybe Janet Jackson would buy this from me. I feel that she and his children are the one’s that received his guru grace. He passed on his spiritual lineage to them. Even now I am tearing up as I write this. It is cathartic. I get so much shit for my feelings about Michael, but that doesn’t stop me. I don’t care, haters gonna hate.
