Surfing in Hilo, Hawaii

“When we say we are Hawaiian in the Hawaiian language we say, ‘he Hawaii au,’ which translates to ‘I am Hawaii.’ We don’t separate the person from the place, which is something that I’m very proud of. Without Hawaii, I don’t exist and without me, neither does Hawaii.” Learn about Hawaiian surfer Cliff Kopono’s journey to protect his cultural heritage, as well as the ocean that surrounds his home near Hilo, Hawaii.

Love Enough

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer: no disease that love will not heal: no door that enough love will not open…It makes no difference how deep set the trouble: how hopeless the outlook: how muddled the tangle: how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world…”

Mother Wisdom Speaks

Some of you I will hollow out

I will make you a cave

I will carve you so deep the stars will shine in your darkness.

You will be a bowl.

You will be a cup in the rock collecting rain…..

I will do this because the world needs the hollowness of you.

I will do this for the space that you will be.

I will do this because you must be large.

A passage,

People will find their way through you.

A bowl.

People will eat from you

And their hunger will not weaken them to death.

A cup to catch the sacred rain…..

Light will flow from your hollowing.

You will be filled with light.

Your bones will shine.

The round open centre of you will be radiant.

I will call you Brilliant One.

I will call you Daughter Who is Wide.

I will call you transformed.
