Description 'Everywhere I look, I see beauty. Listen if you would hear the music of the land. Imitate nature in your art. Give one blessing for every two you receive. Never refuse a gift of the land. Heed well the voice of your heart. Give to the land more than you take. The song of the sea is neverending. On any great journey, be guided by the stars, na hoku. Learn of the world around you, and in the learning, ... find yourself. Honour the memory of your ancestors, your Kupuna. Every life is precious; every spirit unique and irreplaceable. A Journey of the spirit is never truly finished -- its paths continually unfold before us. A life well spent is like the banyan tree -- anchored to the land by many roots. The rain is a blessing of renewal upon the earth. Arise, oh Sun, and warm the land with your passage! Though I have no wings, my spirit flies upon the wind! Strength is the warrior within. The land is rich in abundance for those who know where to look. In the song of the ocean, I find healing. Let me be like the dolphin -- joyous in the knowledge of my freedom! The sun's light brings new life -- the moon's glow, renewal. In each of us dwells the fountainhead of greatness. The creative source is also the source of life. Each of us must aspire to the heights of our own abilities. Our spirits are reborn in the land. What benefits the Earth, Ke Au Nei, benefits all life. Find the good in every aspect of life. The wind bides for a spell in this place, then it seeks other lands to explore. Stone remains when all else passes away.

"What keeps me alive is found between the images, between the words, between thought, the emptiness of feeling, and in the emptiness of the body... there arises the fullness and significance of life... " ~ Basarab Nicolescu
