Simple Happiness


Welcome back to Waikiki!

"Politics is the only business where doing nothing other than making the other guy look bad is an acceptable outcome." - Gov. Mark Warner

"Our happiness comes from simple things like love and friendship , a clear conscience, peaceful mind, a gentle and kindly spirit; a sense of duty and an awareness of beauty. Happiness does not depend on the position we hold, the size of our bank account or whether we live in one room or a mansion.. As someone said, 'Happiness is an inside job.'"

- Rev. Paul Osumi

Feeling grateful to or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.

Christiane Northrup, M.D.

The spiral is the path to wisdom, the place of power in the moment. The Hawaiians called it Manawa Nui, the Great Now. Only the outskirts and outer reaches of the spiral manifest as maze. We must choose to enter, persist, and enter further. Once committed, once inside the journey, we begin to perceive the spiral. . . and to Ride it.

Let go, relax, marinate in stillness . . . out of this, arising will come. Access the ancient intelligence of your body and let your mind idle a while. It NEEDS it.
