Real Magic and Michael

In 1992 when the time came to write a dedication for my book Real Magic, I decided to recognize three special people—my dear daughter Saje, my spiritual brother Deepak Chopra, and my friend pop superstar Michael Jackson. I wanted to recognize Michael “whose words, music, and love remind us that it is only through giving that we are saving our own lives.” Michael Jackson had a special relationship with the principles of Real Magic, the idea of “creating miracles in everyday life.”  With his enormous musical talent, he created a body of work that brought joy to millions. My children and I spent five very happy days with him at Neverland in 1991. He wanted to talk to me about “real magic,” but the truth is, he already had the magic—the power he needed to dream and create and give. Michael was dedicated to ending world hunger and helped create the 1985 “We Are the World” celebrity sing-along that brought together some of the biggest names in popular music to raise funds for famine relief in Africa. I didn’t have to explain “real magic” to Michael because he was already a spiritual being, already kind, loving, and ready to use his musical gift to create miracles. Along with millions of people around the world, I say, thank you, Michael, for sharing your amazing talent to lift our spirits. I’ll remember you as a beautiful human being with a heart as big as the sky.

I know in time, all will know what was done to Michael. I only hope the sacrifice and the task he was given, do not outweigh the leap they were intended to inspire. I would like to request something of you Dr. Please join all of us who are actively keeping this man’s legacy, by simply speaking and writing about Michael’s integrity and truth.

Mikel says:

In his life he could have used the encouragement and public support at his lowest not after he is gone. Where were people on the tv shows saying how you trusted him with your kids and he was nothing but kind and respectful to them then when they where calling him a pedophile?

What a special tribute… thank you for sharing!

Behzad, Iran says:

Dr Dyer, In Countries Like Iran, it’s not possible to have master card or others to pay online, If it is possible, please, only for some days put your film “The Shift” on Google Video .

Sally says:

I came across this blog a few hours after watching “The Shift.” Somehow this holds deeper meaning for me today than it might have yesterday. Strangely, all the things I thought I knew mj for (celebrity, talent, fame) have melted away. What remains instead are the legacy of his tenderness and his unquenchable thirst for beauty and love.

Karla says:

There are so many people around us that have that “Real Magic”. We just need to open our hearts and minds to them. They are with us daily. Thank you Dr. Dyer for all that you are and do. I hope to meet you soon and have the opportunity to experience your “Real Magic”! ~ Namaste~

Gail says:

As a kid growing up with Michael’s music, I felt there was something truly magical about him, and not just his awe-inspiring talents. Today, I’m attempting to live my life in such a way as his light shined, and I consider him one of my guardian angels. Thank Dr. Dyer.

Nards says:

What a wonderful tribute. So glad I found this one Dr. Dyer.
