Touch The Miracle

A L O H A From Honolulu!

African tulip tree (Spathodea campanulata)
an evergreen tree native to West Africa.
Our choice is stark.
Therefore, choose life!
My blood pressure too
skyrockets when
I see the news,
but I'm also finding
a deep resignation
in a radically simple faith
that practices kindness and
refuses to be disempowered
by fear.

Art, Rest & retreat are important tools. Nurture your light.

A father used to buy goods from
poor people at a high price,
even though he didn't need them.
Sometimes he paid way
more for them. His children
were amazed. One day they asked
"why are you doing this dad?"
Their father replied:
"It's charity wrapped in dignity."
Saima Muneer

We are all equal in the fact
that we are all different.
We are all the same
in the fact that we will
never be the same.
We are united by the
reality that all colours and
all cultures are distinct &
individual. We are harmonious
in the reality that we are all
held to this earth by
the same gravity. C. JoyBell C.

Find a day for yourself
better yet, late at night.
Go to the forest or to the
field, or lock yourself in a room.
You will meet solitude there.
There you will be able to listen
attentively to the noise of the
wind first, to birds singing, to see
wonderful nature and to notice
yourself in it, and to come back
to harmonic connection with the
world and its Creator.
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov

Many people are alive
but don’t touch
the miracle of
being alive. Thích Nhất Hạnh

Crescendo Of Happenstance

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Love one another
like one of you just
got out of prison
after 20 years.

The difference between
ethics and religion is like the
difference between water and tea...
We can live without tea,
but not without water.
Likewise we are born
without religion, but not without
the fundamental need
for compassion.
     Dalai lama

The belief that there is
some future moment
more worth our presence
than the one we're in right now
is why we miss our lives.
  Cory Muscara

Become the person
your younger self would
want to look up to.
 Goitsemang Mvula

Your thoughts
are investments.
What are you
investing in?

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

In Our Power

A L O H A From Honolulu!

We are all together in the canoe. To move forward, we must work together.

Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most. Buddha

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. Henry Ford            

Kindness is in our power, 
even when fondness is not.
               Samuel Johnson

With Gratitude And Faith And Sleep

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Nourish the nighttime healing fairies
with gratitude and faith and sleep.
Terri Guillemets

The cause of suffering is that
the unbounded Self is
overshadowed by the world.

A friend is someone who
gives you total freedom
to be yourself.
 Jim Morrison

Always act like
you're wearing an
invisible crown.

Among Stars

A L O H A From Waikiki

Those no longer among us
are among the stars.

Write your bane in sand,
your blessing in a stone.
 Amit Kalantri

Canna 'Yellow King Humbert' Burbank

Sorrow in the face of aging
would be a poor response
to such good fortune.
 Margaret Renkl

I wandered everywhere,
through cities and countries wide.
And everywhere I went,
the world was on my side.
Roman Payne

If only the best birds sang,
the forest would be silent. Henry Van Dyke

Just A Drop

A L O H A From Honolulu!

We know only too well that
what we are doing is nothing
more than a drop in the ocean.
But if the drop were not there,
the ocean would be
missing something.
One drop of wine is enough to
redeem a whole glass of water.
Mother Teresa

Nothing causes more
consternation in a group
of hypocrites than
one honest person.

In the beginner's mind
there are many possibilities,
but in the expert's there are few. Shunryu Suzuki

Discouragement is like a
scorpion in your shoe;
it takes courage to toss it out
so you can move on.
Richelle E. Goodrich

People deal too much with
the negative, with what is wrong.
Why not try and see positive
things, to just touch those
things and make them bloom?
Thich Nhat Hanh
