Thank You Friends

A  L  O  H  A !
You are a livingness, a verb. 
What is arising in you, 
at this moment, is 
the great realization.
               Christopher Zzenn Loren

Gratitude is one of 
the most medicinal 
emotions we can feel. 
It elevates our moods 
and fills us with joy."
         Sara Avant Stover

There is, they say, a
crowded highway to Hell,
but speak of the 
stairway to Heaven.

What lovely steps!
Pause as long on a step
as you wish.

Go back down a step or two
for another look at
a stage of your learning.

Enjoy the ascent.
High vibrations like gratitude,
High places like peaks,
are conducive to your rise,
Ignore the highway traffic.
Come up. Come up
in love.
Thank YOU Friends!

It is a soup dish that consists of soft wheat egg noodles served in hot dashi garnished with green onions." Wikipedia

Happened In Thomas Square

A  L  O  H  A !

"In February 1843 British Lord George Paulet on HMS Carysfort seized and occupied the Kingdom of Hawaii.

On July 26 Admiral Richard Darton Thomas sailed into Honolulu harbor on his flagship HMS Dublin. He became Local Representative of the British Commission by out-ranking Paulet. His intention was to end the occupation." 

"On July 31, he held the Hawaiian flag in his hands as he officially transferred the islands back to King Kamehameha III who said the words Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ʻĀina i ka Pono in a speech during a ceremony to mark his restoration. Roughly translated from the Hawaiian language it means "The sovereignty of the land is perpetuated in righteousness" and has become the state motto of Hawaii, incorporated into the Seal of Hawaii." 

"The British flag set was pulled down and the Hawaiian flag was raised, followed by a series of 21 gun salutes from the Fort, the British ships Carysfort, Dublin, Hazzard, the American ship Constellation, and lastly by guns at the park."

"Kamehameha III later named the place where the ceremony was held in Downtown Honolulu "Thomas Square" in Admiral Thomas's honor and dedicated it as a public park."

Relax. You ARE This

A  L  O  H  A !
In the sweetness of friendship 
let there be laughter, and 
sharing of pleasures. For 
in the dew of little things 
the heart finds its morning 
and is refreshed. 
Khalil Gibran

You hold a special 
energy in the universe.
Relax and just BE 
that energy holder.

 Any true task for you 
will manifest as
joy and excitement. 
You will not be able to
NOT do it!

I love you.
Love yourself
trust the recognition
you are feeling
to my words!"


That's the way!

A cloudy day is no match 
for a sunny disposition.     
William Arthur Ward

Staring up at the sky 
on a bright, sunny day 
makes me dream and 
gives me ideas.
                Marc Jacobs

I write - though perhaps it 
sounds pretentious to say so - 
to make a clearing in the wilderness, 
to find out what I care about 
and what exactly to make of it. 
                        Pico Iyer

It is beautiful to talk 
about beautiful things and 
even more beautiful to 
silently gaze at them.

The crash and boom of the Sea
slamming the land
causes the ground to
tingle your feet
with a deep & ancient
heralds of spray
cast glitters and
ions about.

Is the sky cloudy? Can’t you see 
the shining stars? Take a look 
at the eyes of a happy child, 
you will see all the 
bright stars over there!

Oh soul,
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?

Who cares about the clouds 
when we're together? 
Just sing a song and bring 
the sunny weather.

Closer Look

A  L  O  H  A !
Sometimes the most beautiful things 
are in front of our eyes, and we don’t 
even notice because we’re either 
too busy or too afraid to 
take a closer look. 
                      Katja Michael

Since you cannot do good to all, 
you are to pay special attention 
to those who, by the accidents 
of time, or place, or circumstances, 
are brought into closer 
connection with you. 
            Saint Augustine

Look at the sky. 
We are not alone. 
The whole universe is 
friendly to us and conspires 
only to give the best to 
those who dream and work.
