I went out into the mountains by myself but I was far from being alone. When I look out at the living forest, I no longer see a field of green plants intermingled together being in harmony. I now feel and hear every diseased family member, lost friend, animals, all their souls resonating through nature, guiding my spirit with little hints from the birds, the wind, the rustle of leaves. All communicating with my inner being. Telling me to keep fighting for what is truly right. To never give up. 👁🌱🌿🌲🌳🍃🌍

You can go left, you can go right, or you can go back the way you came. 
Thoughts are like ants, they’re always in the places you don’t want them to be. 
Life’s a walk through the forest, with many paths to take. Be careful though cause if you take the wrong path you may end up lost in this beautiful place.🤪
Thanks for all the bday wishes, I know the coolest people on this planet! ☝️👉👈👇🤙

I rarely sit down and draw anymore.. But I drew this about 4 years ago. van Gogh inspired. Paper and pen ink. The black figure under the tree is the idea of a soul in a human body.

Trees of Enlightenment

I wanna be like the wind, heard and felt by everyone but seen by no one. Wishing I could scream my thoughts into the clouds, to have them rain down aloud all around. So the world could be woken up, from this endless hibernation of the soul. The inadvertent negativity that drowns out the effortless kindness in today. The pure blissful ignorance that runs deep within the tissues of all our brains. Needs to be massaged and released at ones own will, or forever be trapped within these shrills. Knowledge of the indifferent life should be the new goal, new fad, new trend until then I’ll sit back and watch the end.

Watch the sun cross the horizon as the earth rotates beneath your feet, notice the light bouncing all around, reflecting off of each fractal, feel the warmth it brings from so far away, vibrating everything in its way. Listen to the wind scratching the trees untouchable itch, as the leaves clap their hands in amusement. Bring into awareness the rain dripping down your spine, as the droplets pile up and spill over. Smell the air shared with every living being on this planet. Now let your intuition take over the minds urge to see with our eyes, let the setting be a surprise. Become blind to all things visible, open your senses to all vibrations, big or small, as everything morphs into one harmony, hear the symphony of sound, melt into the waves of feeling. Become one with all. .

Would you follow me down the rabbit hole? 🕳🐇 🙃

Take a breath and hold it in deep. Don’t let it out not even a peep. Now invision yourself spiraling amongst the stars, weaving between the galaxies. Around planets and suns, between asteroids and moons, over sand dunes and beside ice mountains. Through a vast amount of darkness but with more light than your eyes can capture. Leaving you to explore the microscopic, the cellular tropics, becoming the microorganism of earths optics. Leaving your body behind and letting your soul be free to explore the infinity. Exhale.

Be witness to the soul encapsulated inside  of your human body. Perceive the sun casting the body’s shadow upon the Earth’s surface. Notice the cold rain falling upon its hot skin. The breeze tickling your internal senses within. Realize that everything you see with your eyes eventually dies. Understand that your inner voice derives from a place very external, like a radar catching a signal. That body, this mind, the heart all play a part in receiving your consciousness, that voice, that feeling, forever revealing the secrets of living. 🌏🌎🌞

No interest in what has happened, or what was where, who said this or saw that, why it didn’t or won’t, when it wasn’t, all of those visions are just a speck of retrospect, leaving us stuck in the past tense. The past is an artificial being that hibernates within your subconscious, when it awakens it starts feeding off of your psyche, soon your mind only thinks thoughts in a backward fashion. Haves no interest in the supposed tomorrow, the expectation of the future, whats going to be, an what is to come. Only interested in what is right now, the show me how, the teach me this, the subtleness of the present tense, this hour, this minute, this second, the today, because today is always today and right now will always be right now. .

Feeling like a mime stuck in the wrong time, no words to relay, no thoughts to display, nothing to say that can be heard in a day. Like speaking an alien language with no translator, unable to decipher. Minds volume on maximum but when I speak I’m on mute. Screaming at a brick wall, what did you say I can’t recall. Lost in translation the delicate understanding of relation. Waterfall sounds over whispers, at a concert with no listeners, a book with no letters, a letter with no ink, like a messenger bird with no feathers and a thought with no think. 😶🤐🤭

Alone we feel. Surrounded by humans we are. No difference between me and we. As if we’re leading the blind and the deaf, say go right but they go left. Eyes covered with lenses, ears clogged with earphones, nose sniffing ‘medicine’, hair stripped of color and lathered in gel, hands covered in cloth, feet wrapped in rubber, body hidden from site, minds trapped in societies fictional maze, when will they discover the light?

The words our mind views on a day to day, they only seem to lead astray. Always neatly ordered in little rows, for us to pick upon like crows. Never leading you far from the path, finding how to learn things like math. Listing the ingredients of your indulgence, insulting all of our intelligence. The natural balance in artificial flavor, the value packed, double stacked, chemically enhanced, deep romance. That our legitimate, genuine plastic molded brain, would only love to entertain. Follow the one thing showing you it’s alive, the beating stampeding heart. It speaks much quieter than the screaming brain. #moss

Let me show you something, take a sat over here on this cliffside of green. Take in the scene with every sense, look out over the hues of blues. As they mix and bend from end to end, from sea to sky can you feel the high? Breath in the ocean air that blows between your hair. Listen to the breeze whispering through the trees. . Feel the earth beneath your soul, contemplate this meditation let go of the ego and be free into infinity.

The slow trail of steam that creeps into my brain from the melting pool of sorrow. Stealing all my hope for today from the hope for tomorrow. Leaving me caught in this rotation of destruction and creation. Inside myself brews the pot of tea that allows me to see clearly. I let it steep for years as I digest its presence, unwrapping all of the presents. As the healing takes me over, the feeling makes me older. As my thoughts tell me lots, my instincts tie in knots. Drowning my ability to think with the idea to feel, allowing my brain to rest and body to heal.

View of Kolekole pass from deep up Mauka in Wahiawa. This island looks more like a living creature everyday I walk upon her.
