Of course, living in paradise does not automatically create the perfect existence .. this is our individual calling .. happiness being within. I'm certain there are happy people living in the least hospitable of places and unhappy folks right here on the Garden Island .. C'est la vie.
I want to be happy and the walks on Pu'u contribute greatly to that goal. A typical pace keeps me on the trail for one hour and forty five minutes each day .. one hour and forty five minutes to contemplate and process the current state of life. These hours of trekking around Pu'u have provided many "aha" moments over the years .. nature's gift of peace in solitude, causing me to constantly be aware I am indeed a fortunate man.
Possibly you've had this same mental rumination ..
Asked for guidance .. got guidance ..
Loudly .. Clearly
"Quit Asking! .. you are equipped with everything you need ..
just turn on your Mindshield Wipers ..
let the light in"
I didn't hear "knucklehead" or "dumbass" at the end ..
Wishing each of you your own Pu'u Road ..
and great Mindshield Wipers
from Kauai to Paris .. and all places between
