The Power of the Gift…

I just read a post by Sally Cheesman that stopped me in my tracks.  Sally quotes Qunicy Jones in an interview about  Michael Jackson.

Quincy goes on to say:

You have to be spiritually grounded and you are really a terminal for a higher power,

And if you don’t understand that, you know, it can be very complicated.

And…..I’ve seen a lot of people misinterpret what success is all about.

light of our hearts

One online descriptive defines a terminal in the following way: “a contact on an electrical device (such as a battery) at which electric current enters or leaves.”  If a terminal is not grounded, the results can be disasterous and even fatal, because the electricity which is passing through the unit is so incredibly powerful.

Had you ever thought about how powerful the breath of life in you is? Every human being is an expression of the Divine power of God.  Every gift and talent is an expression of His creative genius and inspiration.

It occurs to me that being grounded spiritually has it’s base in humility; an understanding that whatever gifts and advantages we bring to this planet are a gift that simply flows through us…not a possession which we own. Humilty also serves to protect us from being blown away by hype, which will topple you over as quickly as it lifts you up with hot air.

Understanding this, as Quincy says makes all the difference in the world.

  1. Thank you for your comment. Everyone is entitled to their opinion—including Quincy Jones whose comment starts this post. I think his insights are worthy of serious reflection…and he IS an individual who knew Michael Jackson personally.

  2. Michael Jackson is the best entertainer ever. For the life of me I don’t know why people can’t see that this man was thirsty 4 lov, he had no child hood and no one 2 realy love him 4 him. all his life he amid 2 please everyone. So if you don’t no anything about this man don’t judge this man…
