As we continue on to Part 2 with Freddie Mercury in our series of Live Conversations with Dead People, we dig deeper into Freddie’s thoughts on his personal life, music, worldview and love.
What made Freddie different was also a connection to his deceased twin. And, during times when we actually stop and reflect upon our actions or their underlying motives, a great lesson can be learned from him to examine what influences we can embrace or ought to let go. As we should know by now, what we think is our imagination may also be of sources from beyond the grave and elsewhere.
With regards to influences on music and society, Confucius once said: “If one should desire to know if a kingdom is well-governed, if its morals are good or bad, the quality of its music will furnish the answer.” It is again what is behind the facade of celebrity, politics and structure of our everyday world—our most minuscule thoughts—that Freddie would point to what has furnished its very creation.
While self-examination is at the very core of what’s reflected back to us in physical reality, it also doesn’t hurt to have some help as Freddie did when he was alive. It was interesting for me to note, in conversation, a band of artists from the other side—Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, among others—were joining together to push forth the ascendance of mankind and our consciousness.
It is perhaps this love for humanity and our love for each other that is the thread which connects us whenever we are left ungrounded and lost in the clouds. Freddie gave humanity too much credit and got lost several times along the way. He was however supported by a love that kept him solid and carries his legacy even after death by one woman in two words—Mary Austin.
Tune in and listen to how Freddie’s and Mary’s love for each other has been the fuel to expand our creativity—not only in music but our very humanity.
