Space Oddity David Bowie Dies at 69 (1946 -2016)

Reading the news today: David Bowie is no longer alive, came with seeing another article - a mistake was made in the news announcing David Cameron's death...this was quickly corrected.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3393806/Moment-Heart-FM-newsreader-accidentally-announces-David-Cameron-died-instead-David-Bowie.html

\In the Daily Mail  alone are  12 articles today about David Bowie, his love, his life and his passing. A man who has had a following from fans as well as other people in the entertainment industry- has been an inspiration to people from all walks of life, his peers and

Cancer, the most cruel killer yet as with learning of this private man with a private family life - this continued even in his illness. His family have asked to respect their privacy in grieving for their loss.

David Bowie was just 69 years old - departing this world after a full life, success finding soul- love a new lease of life came with a baby and prioritising after a heart attack.

His message was not of conformity ...if anything he was opening peoples minds with his message. Songs that come to mind from long ago 'Ground control to Major Tom' in the lyrics from Space Oddity and 'We can be Heros just  for one day.- this memorable version I am sharing, Live Aid in 1985



 - while preserving his private life, private David continued in his art, his work being more than music and song writing to deliver his final message only a couple of days ago. With seeing the name Lazarus, have to admit, I thought of the biblical figure Lazarus who was raised up again by Jesus...

Space Oddity - suggesting a journey to Space and communication accordingly...Major Tom - (an abbreviation of Thomas..doubting Thomas's might be somewhat  understood in this timeline)

The lyrics Lazarus open with 'Look up here, I'm in heaven'

After six heart attacks, David will have had the warnings that life is not forever and perhaps, this gave him all the more reason, to make life meaningful  and memorable for loved ones who remain.

In a career that spans several decades, this is not without giving something and popularity is not without reason = ever aware of the precious gift of life, the London born boy will have seen life for the youngsters' his message prepares people with new and renewed awareness beyond this world.

The Telegraph write his last album was a carefully planned parting gift to his fans.



'In a statement on his Facebook page, he said: "He always did what he wanted to do. And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way.
"His death was no different from his life - a work of Art.
"He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift.
"I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it.
"He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us.'

..... 'In the Melody Maker interview, he claimed to be apolitical, stating: "The more I travel and the less sure I am about exactly which political philosophies are commendable. The more government systems I see, the less enticed I am to give my allegiance to any set of people, so it would be disastrous for me to adopt a definitive point of view, or to adopt a party of people and say 'these are my people'" 

On 10 January 2016, two days after releasing the album Blackstar on his 69th birthday, Bowie died from cancer at his New York home. He had been diagnosed with the malignancy eighteen months earlier, but had not made public the news of his illness. Belgian theatre director Ivo van Hove, who worked with the singer on his Off-Broadway musical Lazarus, explained that Bowie was unable to attend rehearsals due to progression of the disease. He noted that "Bowie was still writing on his deathbed, I saw a man fighting. He fought like a lion and kept working like a lion through it all."[235] Bowie's producer Tony Visconti wrote:
He always did what he wanted to do. And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way. His death was no different from his life – a work of Art. He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it. He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us. For now, it is appropriate to cry'

A man if intrigue and intelligence, someone who knows what happens in our world and what is going on behind the scenes too, might also reflect his political statement..quoted above.

Knowing nothing of this man other than his earlier songs..and learning of his later work, everything has a reason - there would be many secrets that would remain hidden because they were meant to be.

Frankly, I mean, sometimes the interpretations I've seen on some of the songs that I've written are a lot more interesting than the input that I put in.



By a few quotes I found by David Bowie. we discover more






http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/david_bowie/index.html

There is a biblical quote: that comes to mind:

Fearing God Alone
26"Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27"What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. 28"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.… Matthew 10:26-28

Notice the video of the book with the black star - held in the light meaning that David is exposing this openly...This is no longer hidden any more....still people are sleeping...

Children of Light
12for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. 14For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you."… Ephesians 5:12-14

Amazingly,while there are people revealing truths, they are not comprehending even with the wars that there are people involved in dark and diabolical acts and secret inner circles for power too.

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Luke 8:17



We cannot judge  someone we do not know...With any of the 'artists' we do not know their truth unless they reveal their truth. Iit is likely that the truth about David's heart is known by his loved ones.

Another era has passed, David had a purpose...Do you know?

Peace be with you
Pauline Maria
