    Love Letter to the People of Hawaii

    May 18, 2018

    Dear People of Hawaii,

    I know it must be frightening to live in Hawaii right now. I think of you constantly looking at the sky, checking the Internet for environmental updates, talking anxiously to friends and loved ones, telling tales and comforting your children.

    I hope you realize how many of us, many miles away from you, are thinking of you as you do .

    So many forces coming up to the surface from the bottom of things, life shaking at its core, exploding with the fierce intentionality of nature. I know many of you realize Hawaii is taking a hit for all of us.

    Why Hawaii? I think because Hawaii can take it.

    Unknown perhaps by the media and unnoticed perhaps by many, I have no doubt how many Hawaiians are treating this occasion with reverence, weaving around it an invisible, sacred container. Honoring the Mother, respecting her as she screams, feeling the deep and archetypal messages that erupt from the soul of humanity as they erupt from the center of the earth.

    Beyond the level of material science, so many ancient powers are being summoned now: through dance, through song, through prayers, through ceremony, through individual and group meditations. I see the Islands of Hawaii surrounded by extraordinary powers both unleashed and summoned by the volcanic eruptions. And every soul either native to Hawaii, or called to Hawaii, is feeling the multi-dimensional forces at work as the earth transforms itself and humanity is carried up in its thrall.

    Hawaii, they say, is the heart chakra of the earth. Hers is the heartbeat not only of earth’s Mother but of all her children. She is speaking, and those with ears to hear are listening.

    Dear Hawaiian brothers and sisters, those of you holding the space for Kona to do what Kona needs to do through prayers and ritual and love, please know how many of us know that you are doing it for all of us. And we thank you.

    We stand in attention and we bear witness, as you endure and navigate this stupendous hour. We know how much more is going on than is visible on our TV screens.

    We salute you.
    We pray for you.
    We love you.
    We are with you.
    Carry us in your hearts with us,
    as we are carrying you in ours.

    May God walk with you.
    May He bless you and protect you
    And the earth on which you live.
    Amen

    xo
    Marianne

    That saying “familiarity breeds contempt” may be true. We tend to take loved ones for granted over time, no matter how well-intended. Yet it is equally true that familiarity breeds acceptance. Thus it is easier to stick a new idea in someone’s mind if you can attach it to something familiar – an existing memory. […]

    Why Waiters Cried While Serving Our Breakfast

    After the priest moved to a new parish he approached his superior to ask, “Would you mind if I smoked while praying?” and was, not surprisingly, turned down. If, instead he had said, “Would you mind if I pray while I am smoking?” he might have gotten a more positive response. Here’s the unexpected way […]

    When I saw my dear friend, Daniel, walking down the hall toward me that morning I smiled and held up the book I’d gotten for him. When Daniel saw me he looked stricken. Then he quickly wheeled around and shot into the men’s room. Deeply hurt, I avoided him for several weeks until his sister called to tell me that their mother had finally gotten a court order requiring their father to leave the home because he had been hitting her brother. She said her brother was embarrassed about not being able to defend himself and that was why he…

    Dusk settled coolly over the vineyards in Napa Valley, California, one fall evening. Through the window, we gazed wistfully at a thin stream of bittersweet chocolate sauce a waiter was ladling high over a raspberry-colored cake at the table of a hand-holding couple, inside the big stone restaurant operated by the Culinary Institute of America. I knew it was bittersweet chocolate because the rich smell was drifting through the French doors out onto the patio, where we were drinking a fine Cakebread cabernet next to two giggling toddlers, just as happily chewing red licorice twists from the local 7-11 store.…
