...The spirit of Aloha is here to stay!

We took the liberty to select from her treasure box some of our favorite Pearls of Wisdom:

"If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or gives us a kind word of encouragement, extraordinary things begin to happen. Be the giver of inspiration and love and watch your world change."

"If you love someone, hurry up and show it. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand, and melting like a snowflake." 

"The sum total of a lot of little things, isn't little."

"Everyday do something good, or kind, or extravagantly joyful for someone else. This will add joy to your heart!"

"It's true that we don't know what we've got until it's gone, but it's also true that we don't know what we're missing until it arrives."

 "Life is like a grindstone. Whether if grinds us down, or polishes us up, depends on us."

"We are all connected to each other..."

"Love is always the answer....what was the question?"

"The power of love is beyond comprehension. It reaches beyond time and space; it reaches beyond this Earthly existence. Love is the greatest power there is."

 "Be the builder of love, of hopes and dreams. Choose to build bridges instead of walls. May your Rainbow Bridge take you to places of inspiration and peace, and may you walk your path with joy!"

"A part of kindness consists of loving people more than they deserve."

"There's no problem that friends cannot confront, combat, plot against, ignore, make fun of, drown in chocolate sauce or run over with the car. Tell your friends today how much you love them."

"Love in the heart wasn't meant there to stay, love, isn't love, till you give it away."

"Be a good giver and receiver of love. When you receive love from others, you allow them to experience the joy of giving."

"The ones we love don't go away, the walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed, still very dear."

"Your Ohana will always be there for you. Blood is thicker than water."

"The best proof of love is Trust."

"Love reaches beyond time and space, and is felt by the ones we love..."

"The Kanaka Maoli knew that there were atoms of intelligence in all things, so we could communicate with nature. We need to respect all things and ask permission, whether it was from a flower or a person. In this interconnectedness, we could not hurt another without hurting our self. Like a patchwork quilt, we are one giant quilt but retain our individual uniqueness like each beautiful square."

"Some things cannot be seen, only felt in your soul."

"Believe that you are of infinite worth, and greatly loved!"

"We make a living by what we get, a life by what we give."

"We are the reflection of the Divine..."

"Everything you do reverberates across the Universe, touching everyone and everything."

"Leave footprints of Love on the hearts of others where it will never be forgotten."

"If you can't live your life to be a good example, you may just have to serve as being a warning."

"... this reminds me of my son Michael. One evening he took an extremely long time setting the table so that each and every fork was perfectly aligned within an 1/8 of an inch from the tables edge. I thanked him for a great job, but also said, 'you know forks being aligned perfectly is good, but it doesn't really make a difference with all the time you spent.. You could also use your energy to do something that really makes a difference in the lives of others. Spend time talking to your kupuna, take some time to do something nice for someone. Now that will make a difference that keeps on giving.' The gift is in seeing imperfect people and things, perfectly."

"Be the builder of love, of hopes and dreams. Choose to build bridges instead of walls. May your Rainbow Bridge take you to places of inspiration and peace, and may you walk your path with joy!"

"Live authentically and your life will become a wonderful romance and adventure. Now is the time. Jump in, and make a Splash! Change the World."

"Love is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You can't spread it around without getting some of it on yourself."

"Spread the joy, laugh a jelly belly laugh, and live ALOHA!"

"Age is just a number, and mine is unlisted...."

"The age that I love best is my Unihipili age, (Inner child). It is about looking at the World in wonder, laughing, blowing bubbles, enjoying the grass between my toes, cupcakes with lots of frosting, puppies, and nap time. May your Unihipili be well nurtured and loved."

"When you get to the edge of all the light that you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, you need to believe in one of two things. That you will find a firm place on which to stand, or that you will be taught to fly."

"How does one become a butterfly?" she asked. "When you want to fly so badly, you will be willing to give up being a caterpillar." 

"Be who you are, everyone else is already taken."

"To be authentic is to be comfortable in your own skin. Laugh, sing, dance, be grateful for all that you have been blessed with. Share your gifts with a joyful heart!"

"We all smile in the same language."

"Break down barriers with a smile, straight from the heart!" 

"The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have." ~ Happiness is a state of mind, it is an appreciation of life's gifts, both great and small."

"Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but doesn't get you anywhere." Tonight when I go to bed, I will turn all of my worries over to God, He's going to be up all night anyway!"

"Courage does not always roar. It may be the small little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow."

"Never give up, Ho'omau...I know you can do it, I have faith in you!"

"Be comfortable in uncertainty, it is pure potential. It may not be the unknown that you are afraid of, rather it may be leaving the known. You won't find anything new by looking in the same old places. Ho'omaka! Begin anew!"

"E ala E!
The beauty of a new day!
We have done this chant so many times on the beach
to welcome the rising sun.
The sun has been where the ancestors are,
the gates are opened wide!
E ala E!"

"Life will sometimes hand you a magical moment, savor it! The morning after the tsunami scare, I stood on my lanai and let the cool rain fall through my fingers. It felt so good to be alive, and I was so grateful that everyone in Hawaii was safe. I'll always remember that moment when I realized how blessed we are."

"Life is too short
To waste even a minute,
We need to embrace life
Each second we're in it."

"What is your favorite word and what does it mean? My favorite word is, 'Cattywampus' - it means kapakahi or 'out of place' and 'all mixed up.' It makes me smile because it reminds me of a kitty cat."

"Joy comes from being grateful for all things, big and small. For tiny, wiggly baby's toes, a perfect tomato, and the smell of clothes fresh from the line. To be joyful is a trait from the Divine, who has filled our World with beauty for us to discover. Surprise! Isn't life grand?!!"

"By giving to others,
With love and with feeling,
Then will our lives be filled
With true meaning."

"A Hawaiian name is your spiritual name. Within this name is the mana to do your life's work and the key to what this work is. The Kanaka Maoli hid the deeper meaning within the name so that it's sacredness would be preserved. A Hawaiian name can be given by someone bearing the same name, through a dream, or through prayer and inspiration. It cannot be taken, only given."

"God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called. If you think that you're not able to do a task you've been called to do, think again... you have more help that you can ever imagine!"

"Feel the breeze... it is the caress of the ancestors. E Komo Mai! Come and sit under the tree with us, it's heavenly!"

"We learn best from nature, surrounded by beauty it is much easier to absorb our truths."

"... Go with the 'Aina,
Pohaku and Wai,
The Mana you'll feel
Descend from on high."
"Hanging out at the watering hole of Spirit. Just getting a refill and refuel."

"I just take one day at a time, they have been beautiful days! I feel contented, well loved and sending back an ocean of gratitude to Ke Akua."

"There is peace from within,
In my heart, in my soul,
And I go with the tide
Knowing God's in control."

"Humility is that elusive quality, that when you think you have it; you don't."

"Kindness is contagious.....so is anger."

"Don't dismiss a good idea simply because you don't like the source."

"I walk through a field of stars, such beauty I have never seen, not even in my most vivid dreams. To be so light, unhindered by gravity or Earthly existence, expanded so wide to fill the entire universe with love. It goes on an on unimaginable beauty."

"When you have an attitude of gratitude, the universe steps in to make sure that you have even more things to be grateful for! Mahalo Ke Akua!"

"I'll weave for you a lei of stars...a lei of unimaginable beauty!"

"Pomaika'i also means "Blessed, or a blessing. May your spirit soar like Pomaika'i. May your path be clear before you and your heart as light as a feather."

"I think that I shall never see, a poem as lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed, upon the Earth's sweet flowing breast.
A tree who looks to God all day, and lifts it's leafy arms to pray,
upon whose bosom snow has lain, and intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree."
Mahalo Ke Akua!

"Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you are going when your lights are dim. Go to bed early for a change, watch a movie that makes you laugh, take a long walk in nature."

"We rarely receive more than what we feel worthy of receiving. Know that you are worthy to receive. You are perfect just the way you are. Say, 'I am enough' and know it. Allow the universe to unfold in it's own time and give up the path of struggle, give up your ego. Trust, and go with the flow of divine energy. Miracles await you!"

"You are of infinite worth, teach others how to treat you."

"Live so that you are worthy of their respect."

Overwhelming joy and gratitude dear Karen...

Mahalo Ke Akua for the wisdom of "All That Is" and Mahalo nui loa to you for sharing that wisdom, your teachings, friendship, love and Aloha with all of us.
