≅Yes it’s my birthday and in honor of birth, I’m posting this picture of the Kala’lea Mountain Range, here in Anahola, Kauai. If you look closely at the very left you will see the head of a maiden gently resting upon the earth with her hair flowing down the mountain. She is lying on her back, with palms together in a gesture of prayer, and her beautiful pregnant belly rises gracefully, just beyond her praying hands. At about 3/4 of the way to the right, you will see a bit of a rise, that’s her feet. There is a “birthing heiau” in these mountains, a temple dedicated to birth. Hawaiian legend has it that all souls enter the material plane through this portal and leave at another portal at the west end of the island called Polihale…a beautiful cosmology, indeed!
It is a gorgeous day here and the waters I swam in today looked just like the water in this picture. Before I left for my date with the sea, I was given a whole new spin on “happiness” when I opened up a book called 365 Days of Wisdom and opened up to a page dedicated to the value of happiness. Most worth sharing with you~a gift from me to you~
“Long-lasting happiness emerges from working constantly toward a specific goal.”
We tend to look for happiness in all we do. If we cannot see the results of our efforts, often we are not inspired to complete the task. (Do you recognize this habit in yourself?) This attitude means that although we might experience happiness for a short time, it will never be long lasting. (Boy, does this coincide with what I’ve been pondering lately!!! There are lots of opportunities for short-term happinesses all around me, every day. And yet, they can often total up to be plain old distractions, by the end of the day when I take account of what value I accumulated and actually shared during the time alloted to me!)
Application and Affirmation
Real, long-lasting happiness comes from committing myself to a specific goal. When I am focused on what I want to achieve, the little things that I find difficult or which don’t give me immediate happiness don’t get in my way. I move toward my goal with happiness.
All the Best to You on Your Journey of Accumulating the Kind of Treasure which will be Eternally Rewarding, not just for today!
Aloha Lovely Soul,
Thank you so much for coming to visit me at Enlightened Answers.!
I really love it when souls find benefit in what I'm writing.
These writings are based on daily spiritual study and meditation which when applied in life create a truly valuable way of life for the present and future lives as well.
It has been such a wonder to be tucked away in the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for 27 years. The past 20 have been on the oldest and most serene island of the Hawaiian chain~the northern most island of Kauai.
Most people don't realize that Hawaii is made up of a chain of seven islands, sometimes related to the seven chakras of the human body. As Kauai sits at the top of the chain; it is often called the "crown" of the Hawaiian islands.
Who am I? I am a spiritual elder and practitioner of Raja Yoga Meditation. I am a healer of hearts because I have surrendered to the Almighty who has healed mine. I offer Spiritual Empowerment sessions that assist with building trust, faith, and strength in the Self.
For each of the past eight years, I've had the wonderful fortune to have traveled to northern India to the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University on Mt. Abu, Rajasthan.
This wonderful place is also called Madhuban, which means Forest of Honey. It is a pilgrimage place dedicated to the Remembrance of God; a place to attend classes, a place to meditate by yourself or with many others; and a wonderful place to commune with like-hearted souls. It is an exceptional container reserved for souls who wish to live according to the highest codes of conduct. It is a place designed for souls to have a deep, rich, and loving meeting with the Supreme Soul. My annual journeys here have enriched my life immeasurably, beyond words.
Who am I? I am a peaceful soul who honors the peaceful soul of you. I am a lover of Truth and hope that you are able to glean deep soul answers in these writings which I , who once who was so lost and who is now found, shares with you.
Take the jewels that touch you, make them your own, and share them, for giving and receiving is a good part to play at this time of transformation of souls and of the earth.
If you are interested in going deeper, please do not hesitate to call upon me at 808-639-9436,
Many Blessings from My Heart to Yours,
