Coming home to a place I've never been before. It's Fee-Gee (Fiji) Hiow did I end up in a place like this? Favoritism.

John Denver visited this island today-Sunshine On My Shoulders.
You can't get any further away before you start coming back.Imagine sailing across the blue waters of the South Pacific, passing by idylic islands, teeming with exotic fish and majestic coral reefs--Oh wait I don't have to use my imagination because what you see is what you get. Bula.
                                                                                                                                    OMG I'm a Country Boy

The Law of Diminishing Returns  

You know, addiction isn't the problem - it's the solution-
 When all you care about is here, this is a good place to be



It is the theory that the more your experience something, the less effective it becomes. Think of the drug addict that needs more and more drugs, just to achieve the same high.

Beyond that point, more and more gains in any one particular area adds less and less to happiness.
So in a sense, you can have too much of a good thing. The more you experience of the good thing, your overall happiness will decline.
I am needing a larger and larger DOSES of paradise-Bora Bora, Moorea, now Fiji---to get the same  feeling I had when I simply visited Europe or even Canada. It's  STILL working!




EGOnomics 101
Fiji has over 300 islands- I have seen about 25 so far this trip. I'm concerned that "the wow factor" no longer applies. Yet if I take an imaginary a ride down Southern California's Carmageddon- Interstate 405, breath in some smog  while stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. I still want to escape to  MY reality--being in the South Pacific! I love the  Free Parking for all boats, ships and anything that floats.

Hawaii was the experience that answered all my questions about time-it didn't exist. Everything is NOW on a ship, and the only easy day is YESterday. On The Pacific Ocean, I may not have been Mr Right, but I felt ok being Mr Right Now.

When we would dock off  Kona or  in Kauai,  I was in the MOment. It was only in the "Mainland"  where My Aloha Vibe got distracted with Caffeine and the Malls, and I was on default. just another Haole--- the other. not a true person from here.

In the South, they don't care how you do it Up North-in Hawaii, they just don't care- I met "adults" who never wore pants-just shorts, flip flops. Aloha Friday and Naked
On The Set 
Tuesdays-Oorah!

Aloha Time  Lets Things Happen When They're Ready to Happen, and I was ready to happen.

Moonwalking With The Kahunas ---The Art and Science of Forgetting Everything I  Learned About Clock Time See:  Time Millionaire-Who Wants To Be One?

Aloha Time Is Divine Time, and, more than that,  you  "get paid" for who you are---on the Divine Payroll, -an energetic force that has your best interest at heart that you can tap into it any time you want...and things show up when you want them. It's more than liquid, it's a fluid life.
Next I got this gig on LOST
First thing I did was start teaching

In other words, What you focus on gets BIGGER, and Analysis is Paralysis. There is always a Mental time-travel , one of the greatest gifts of the mind. It makes us human, and it makes us special. It is the
clash between the "experiencing self" and the "remembering self". Just saying the word "Hawaii" is like talking about my youth, a time I remember so well because it was a place of "firsts". Novelty has such an impact on us.

I used to call it nostalgia--- the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return. On further consideration, I'd like to use what psychologists call, the “reminiscence bump”---that great feeling I

Then I bought this SAAB
have as I get older, where I  remember things more vividly that not only happened in my 20's and 30's but also in my 40's and 50's. Could it be because I am constantly adding to my life narrative, and remembering to remember?

Identity is the internalized life story we tell ourselves. Read More:  The Autobiographical Philosophy. In Fact, we favor recollections and stories, whatever their emotional charge, that reinforce who we think we are at any age. It's kinda weird that I am still becoming the person I am going to be.



Here is how it went in The Garden Island: The Monotony of the Mainland collapsed time; the novelty of Kauai unfolded it. Before all of the above took place. I had a:

Full Frontal Luau







Energy flows where attention goes...

These are the 7 Principles of Huna Wisdom. They are timeless, and designed for people to live joyful simple lives.

IKE – The world is what you think it is
Be Aware
KALA – Everything is possible
Be Limitless
MAKIA – Energy flows where attention goes
Be Focused
MANAWA – Now is the moment of power
Be  Here 
ALOHA – To love is to be happy with
Be Happy
MANA – All power comes from within
Be Confident
PONO – Effectiveness is the measure of truth
Be In Tune




I'm in Nawiliwili, Kauai . Love this place. Attention Follows Energy. Everything Is Energy. Peace and Loveism.

Neurons that wire together fire together...That is to say, the more I do something, the more likely I am to do it in the future.

Neurons that fire apart wire apart---Everyday I stay in Hawaii, is a day away from my addictions and a re-organization and a re-creation and reshaping of my brain and my reality.

"Don't just stand there, do nothing"- In other words, Procrastinate Now!! Seven days can make one weak, but Someday is the busiest day of the week in Kauai. Yet with every new experience I am creating a new reality for myself. Step One: Think your way to a better life.

Loveism

I'm thinking in pictures. Right now, you don't need Power Point to explain my job description but I need it to explain when ShiFt Happens.The trick, of course, lies in knowing when to trust that instant response, and when to question it.
I find it so much easier to think in Hawaiian since I only know,
 like four words:Aloha 
(Hello-Goodbye)
Mahalo
(Thank You) E komo mai (Welcome) and Ono (Delicious).


Kauai is known for its spectacular cliffs, canyons and rain forests. It also has  some of the most picture postcard scenery---white powdered  sandy beaches surround the isle and most are off the beaten path  away from the crowds.

Today I settle for the one closest to town.




I wrote a lot  about Hawaii, I hold a special place in my heart  for the land and the people, and the Aloha Vibe.

I showed up In Hawaii and magical things began to happen. 
It all started with the simple decision-to go.  I lived what 
Campbell calls, "The Soul's High Adventure"
I've been riding  (on) a/the wave ever since.
I wrote on 8/27/2007
...

Being T/here in Hawaii has put me in a unique space .. 


... that supports personal exploration, oneness and the mystical experiences of Huna, the Shamans about manifesting and tapping into "mana" "Chi" also known as the life force.

One of the most important aspects of this entire approach is getting in touch with the Higher Self. According to the Huna knowledge, once this connection is made, amazing coincidences will start occurring in your life--and I can affirm, They Did!

The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance.Bless everyone and everything that represents what you want! That's all there is to it. An Ancient secret for modern living. It vitalizes.


It starts with sacrifice, from sacrifice comes bliss.My general formula for my students is"Follow your bliss." Find where it is, and don't be afraid to follow it. Joseph Campbell 



Bill Moyers: Did you ever have the sense of... being helped by hidden hands?
Joseph Campbell: All the time. It is miraculous. I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time - namely, that if you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.

Veritus-You shall know it, but first it will piss you off:.
Harvard Business School is the West Point of capitalism.The  rest is just Karaoke, cheap imitations. 

 Ponzi Diploma Mill

We guys from The 80's  got in early reaped the rewards, spread the buzz that "You need a college degree". As more ppl went, tuition went up, student  loans soared.Pyramid schemes punish  those late to the party. The Bernie Madoff of investing in yourself scandal is a B.A. from a Liberal Arts, Technical, Beauty or Fashion School.
Khao San University in Bangkok-Get a US Degree for $20 Bucks! 
I definitely over-paid for my diploma!You give them money. 
They give you a degree. Just spell your name on this
 piece of paper. They'll print you up a diploma 
No tests.No Books .Nobody is turned down. 







FADE IN: 

At the boat house, Row, row, row, your boat gently down the stream...life is but a dream...One year ago today, July 25,2012, I was in Glacier National Park with natures bulldozers:



Glacier National Park-Of The Mountains




Marjorie Glacier is one of the most photogenic glaciers in
Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. I had the good fortune to be there today
None of these landscapes are ugly because they are natural and wild! 

I learn about geography by traveling by cruise ship; geology, the day after a  huge event-- They  take place  every day somewhere around the planet--- earthquakes, hurricanes, even glaciers move. 

When I attempt  to pick out anything by itself in Alaska , I find it connected to everything else in the Universe, yet I feel my smallness because of its vastness. The wilderness is therapy: Only by going alone in silence, without baggage and buffets,could I  truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other traveling, including on this ship, is Karaoke traveling-a cheap imitation. But it's still worth doing. I can hear the ice sheet-music of the glacier calving and  the music of the bay  written in ice river lines.

..


Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean-John MUir


Are We Clear? Crystal

Sunshine State, Empire State, Aloha State-Wimps compared to New Hampshire's Motto: Live Free or Die.


It was named after England. So it was the 'New' England. Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont,Rhode Island and Connecticut.
The Bigger the Summer Vacation, the harder The Fall

The last time I was on the East Coast,  was April 2010, onboard  the Costa Atlantica, on our way  across the Atlantic. We  hugged the shoreline up to Quebec City and then over to (Old) England. In New England, we stopped  in Norfolk, VA,The birthplace of Naval History; Washington. D.C.; Newport, RI;  Boston MA and Bar Harbor Maine. 
Pahk the Kah In Harvard Yard

This is the first time I have been on land in New Hampshire. Looking forward to seeing some amazing natural beauty.
