What Was Whitney’s Life Purpose

A critical message of Whitney’s life: Be wary of choices that will spoil the great gift we are to this world.

We all come to this earth to do something, to say something, to be something. Whitney gave us beautiful music, but more importantly she gave us a serious life lesson. The lesson involves but is not about drugs and bad company. The lesson is about conscious choice.

Why did Whitney choose to marry Bobby Brown and get into drugs, choices that will forever cloud her legacy. We can’t assume that everything was great for her in the beginning, just because she was beautiful, had an amazing singing voice, and belonged to a prestigious family. Perhaps, from the first time we discovered her, she like an outwardly calm teenager, was searching for a high, searching for crazy fun to release her pain or her wild side.

I believe something was in her that drew her in the direction of hell, and I don’t think she was conscious of it. We rarely are. The best way to raise our consciousness is to look up, as per the title of last album, ‘I Look to You‘.

Whitney said that she was just like Bobby. Maybe the thing to do was not to convince her, the world, or ourselves that she was different. Maybe the thing to do was to accept her, without degrading her or Bobby, and to show her complete love regardless of her choices. From that space of love, perhaps we could have helped her become conscious to her issues and her needs, much earlier. And if she in fact truly craved the desire to be high, she could accept help with finding a new normal, a new way of being that would give a new high on life, while accentuating her talented and joyful legacy.

  1. Thank you so much for reminding us to show more of mercy and less of jugement, It is nice to see and hear also about where we are at in our lives and accepting it as our new normal. Whitney New normal was that she enjoys drugs, maybe it puts her into that special place that she was comfortable in,but because we didn’t understand it we were not accepting.

    Thank you Dawn,
    I love your New Normal,

    Paula, Eriya

    1. Thank you for your comment radicalyou. Whitney’s NORMAL was that she was in a disturbed place that led her to substance abuse and other negative sources. She needed a NEW NORMAL, a positive way to meet her need, while bringing good forces into her life. We could have facilitated that new normal, if we completely accepted her, without seeing her as a disgrace.
