As you wish. But,how, Ben are we to "memorialise" Michael Jackson, if we are not allowed to speak about his achievements?
Let's try the Dhamma aproach then.
Let us think of Michael Jackson, who sang songs that exposed greed as the source of suffering in songs like the earthsong.
How dolphins are drowning in nets which catch more fish than others. Greed causes sentient beings harm, and he pointed at that, appealeed to us to make a change and start with th man in the mirror. That was compassion and wisdom.
He reminded us of how elephant mothers and cubs are shotdown to steal their tusks. Greed. Theft. Cruelty, killing, precepts broken, and he showed that it causes suffering ad that we need to stop.
How rainforest trees fall everyday because our greed.
How ethnic minorities die in wars, because of aversion and hate.
How racial discrimination should be overcome because it causes suffering.
"It doesn't matter if you're black or white."
We had a person here whose lyrics contained what the Buddha taught, so, as Christopher::: said, here or elsewhere, we can make a choice, and either focus on the good, on the virtue ,on the inspiration, compassion and wisdom he had, or we can choose harmful negativity and point at his alledged failings.
I always chose to focus on the light he offered, which was obvious, in contrast to the alledged crimes he got aquitted of.
Hope that was a politically correct memorialisation, as I have no idea what should be other than to avoid mudslinging which is what I will always object to. I'd rather focus on the good he gave..
Which I always have, so I guess Ben's red letters were not adressed to me.
Is not so important anyways, if my words are understood by others or not.
