Hello Dear Ones,
I am on Oahu now. Different vibes than southern Hawai’i (the Big Island). Oahu (the entire island) has close to a million people on it. The Big Island just has one tenth of that population on a much larger island. So I am feeling this population density, considering I am staying with family in a condo in downtown Honolulu.
There is a reason Chi Kung practitioners aim to leave cities to find the best practice sites. I have heard people say that quiet beaches, remote mountains and woods are best (think remote destinations unsullied by dense populations of humans). I have found that the energy (the Chi / Qi, lifeforce energy, connecting with Mother Earth) feels better on the Windward side of Oahu, or the North Shore – there are less people there. And the protected watershed rainforest is closer to civilization over there.
Today I am intending to go up to the North Shore. There are supposed to be 20 – 30 foot waves. There is a low pressure system sitting off to the north, stirring things up.
It should be interesting! There will probably be large crowds though, as this only happens once or twice a month. I doubt there will be surfers, but we will see (they would be out there in the summer for sure).
May I realize that I am merely a wave, and not forget that I am apart of a great ocean!
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
