Amrito Bhatteral Shares an Interesting Reminiscence
I have been touched by the music of Michael Jackson significantly in my life. I would like to share something about the relationship between Osho and Michael Jackson.
Many of you who have looked deeply into Osho’s life will know that the world media really scrutinised him while in the body. Rumours, lies and propoganda about him were spreading like wild-fire at one point through the world press. Similarly, Michael Jackson’s life was also full of this.
But perhaps many of you may not be aware of a interesting link between Osho and Michael while Osho was in the body.
The strange/rare story goes like this (once published in the Osho Times):
During the peak of Michael Jackson’s career when he was performing to sold-out audiences across the globe, he released some statements about his strange/unique experiences. One of Michael’s experiences was that while he was ecstatically dancing on stage with complete full-energy, he would see the vision of a man dancing with him. The man was indian looking, had a long white beard and was wearing a long robe.
Hasya, Osho’s secretary at the time was the wife of the Director who produced the Godfather series. When she read the statement, she sent Osho the message right away. Osho than told Hasya to send Michael Jackson a letter (with his photo), confirming that it was him.
Osho said that he loved creative people, and Michael Jackson was one of the most creative human beings to ever walk on the Earth. He said, there has never been a person that has reached such heights of popularity and entertainment as Michael Jackson. Furthermore, the energy he created was indeed spiritual and immense, and Osho’s energy was present with Micheal during his performances.
No one knows what Michael’s reaction was, but he did admit earlier that he was very scared with the visions he saw while dancing.
Here is a quote from Michael Jackson on his dancing:
“The awareness is expressed through creation.
This world we live in is a dance of the creator.
The dancers appear and disappear
at a glance
but the dance is still living.
On many occasions when I’m dancing,
I am touched by something sacred.
In these moments I feel my spirit is raised and
become one with all there is.
I become the winner and the subjugated,
I become the master and slave,
I become the singer and song,
I become the expert and the known.
Still dancing and then this is
the eternal dance of creation.
The creator and creation merge
in one of joy.
Still dancing …and dancing …and dancing,
… until there is only the dance. ”
