“feel Believe” – Michael’s note about songwriting

Category: MJ Quotes,PhotosSeven @ 6:09 pm

Michael Jackson wrote this note in the late 1970’s about writing and composing songs . . . :

feel Believe
let the song write itself
let it tell you what to write
what instruments to use
what melody should be used
let feeling be your guide
feel feel as though as though
a prophet writing through
the thoughts of God
His penmanship
God’s thoughts
feel feel feel
feel feel feel Believe
the force!  -MJ

"feel Believe" - written by Michael Jackson

    I love you Michael…today and for all times. Your “going” has been a true “coming” in many ways…it has been a “wake-up” call for so many of us including me. You know Michael, NOW I can feel the coming together of all it…the woman in the mirror is FINALLY changing…it took 35 yrs but it is happening…I can F.E.E.L. it.

    Michael, even as I loved you…I could never understand how could you love children so much…I knew you could SEE something that the rest of us could not. Being a mother of 2 little kids I wondered how you had such relation with your children that you never had to raise even your voice…I read your book “Honoring the child spirit” where you talk to Schumely about children BUT it did not help, I still could not get it…not completely.

    The mystery was finally solved when I read “Kinship with all Life”…it was the EUREKA moment. I understood that you held all children in such high regard, love and esteem as fellow spiritual beings and not as dumb things that must be TAUGHT and TRAINED in order to become acceptable. And that approach allowed you to have that CONNECTION and that SEEING. And it can be done with every other living thing…and it will become the voice of the Universal Mind.

    Thanks for teaching me Michael and teaching me well. 🙂

    Love you more!

    Seven.. I visit your site every day ( and others as well )but I don’t always find the time to comment as often as I should.

    I think this note is just one of many examples of how Michael lived his life through his soul, rather than his ego.

    What a shame that so many didn’t understand that,and caused him so much pain because of it. I believe that this approach to life helped him to manage the bad stuff without becoming bitter, and he always expressed his gratitude for so much that was good in his life.

    I remember him every day and try to live by his example.

    Thank you for Michaels beautiful words.
    ‘I do everything through feel and force’ was his lifetime mantra.
    I admire him for taking the risk to always trust again, no matter what , for better or worse.
    Sometimes I wish things were different . But that was who he was and he stayed true to his self.
    He only saw the good in people , because thats who he was.
    That is a great lesson to learn.

    Michael was the epitome of beauty and grace even with his words. The media always presented him as an enigma, but he was an open book always sharing himself with the world. He consistently and continually revealed who he was to the world. It’s amazing and inexcusable that they (the media and others) never listened before now. I am thankful to experience these precious bits of him.

    Michael always had the most beautiful things to say, and he said it in all of his wonderful songs. He truly lived for God and for love, and that’s how we all should live.
