Life...


Today was a most Beautiful, Enlightening and Powerful Day. Like so many of us, especially here in Hawai'i, I was, and still am, deeply impacted by horrific events recently occurring here in our islands. There is a deep sense of loss, not only of precious fragile Human Life, but also the loss of a Kind and Beautiful Way of Life, that seems irretrievably broken and squandered. Maybe fearfully never to return. 

However, today the Ancestors came through. Through Beautiful and Gifted Friends. Some who lived over a Century ago. Some several Centuries. One many Centuries ago. There are no words to describe the Deep Love they continue to possess, despite suffering tragedies and hardships themselves in their own lives. Some suffering the deepest of horrors and sorrows, literally plunging over the precipice and leaving behind everything, and the only thing, you ever Loved in this Life. The Ultimate Sacrifices.

Yet, their Love continues and endures. The Connections. The Compassion. The Hope. Centuries later for the Living today. Humanity can and will recover. As long as the irrepressible Human Spirit Survives, for it can and does Survive, even Death. These dark days are not set in stone. The Beautiful and Innocent days we lament for in sorrowful reflections, can and will return. If each of us Truly Believes. That Love and Light Endure. Eternally. Let us Resurrect the Beautiful Gentle Loving and Kind World we not only Want. But Truly Need. And the One that the Children Deserve.

And for the Ancestors. Who sacrificed so much to try and Gift us a Beautiful World. Because of Their Love for Us. All of Us. Let us Finish Their Unfinished Dreams. As They Lovingly Deliver Ours Unto Us...

Hammer...


My boys really wanted to go see Thor: Ragnarok. So we went. It was a really great movie and we all really enjoyed our night. After it finished, we were walking back to our car. I asked them if they remembered Thor's War Song when he attacked and battled the Evil Ones. I had to hum and sing a little and then they recognized the song. I asked them if they knew what song that was. They said no. I explained to them that it was the Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin from the 1970s. They were both very surprised. 

I told them that I recently reconnected with a childhood friend from Elementary School days and we have been hanging out more and more lately. He introduced me to Led Zeppelin in his living room on old school LP vinyl records around the 5th grade. Immigrant Song was a favorite of mine from the Led Zeppelin III album. We even played rock guitar together while we were in high school, then college and beyond.

When we arrived home, I let my boys see the Immigrant Song live by Led Zeppelin on YouTube. They recalled the scenes in the movie as they listened to the song. I explained to them that Daddy has been rocking Thor's War Song for well over thirty years. They have a lot of catching up to do. This is the real Hammer Time...

Super...

As She Moves the Tides...
Allowing my Love for Her...
To Reveal and Spill Forth...
And To Be Known...
On Earth...

Intentions...


There is so much going on in the World right now. Much of it seems negative, dangerous, out of control and even Life threatening at times. It is time like this that I remember that we have little control over changing the behaviors, views and actions of others. We can only control our response and reactions. We have 100% control over that. 

I am reminded of the importance of setting intentions in Life. Intentions in the Universe. What do we want? Pain? Suffering? Death? Or Happiness, Joy and Life. The Mindfulness we carry each day has a large role in how we react to the World, and to others around us. 

The Energy and Vibrations we put out, especially Love, Humility, Gratitude, Kindness, Compassion and Caring, can not only positively impact the Quality of our Lives, but of everyone we encounter on this Shared Journey. It can also positively impact the World. Negativity, Fear, Anger, Resentment and these types of Emotions and Feelings, open not only ourselves up to increased negative intrusion and sickness, but those around us as well. Fear is contagious and feeds upon itself. Love is contagious as well. But Love feeds us and nourishes our Soul.

We are All Collectively in charge of not only our Lives, but our Future, and our World. If enough of us understand the Power of Love. Humility. Gratitude. Compassion. Forgiveness, and exercise it each day in large and small ways, we Shall Overcome All Threats to this World and Life as we know it...
