Come to the edge. We might fall. Come to the edge. It’s too high! COME TO THE EDGE! And they came, And he pushed, And they flew. ~Christopher Logue I have kept a personal diary since about 2009. In the early days I emptied the thoughts and worries of my busy,...
I am a practitioner of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage and I live in Ireland. I therefore want to deepen my understanding of the Hawaiian philosophy of life and spirituality. At its heart is Aloha and that seems like the best place to start. This is the Hawaiian word for...

‘In nature, when we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.’
~ John Muir
As a practitioner of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi living in Ireland, I feel very fortunate to attend online Hawaiian Philosophy classes with a native Hawaiian teacher and some fellow Lomi practitioners. In our most recent class, our teacher Ku’ulei discussed the meaning of the words Aloha ʻĀina. It literally means ‘Love of the land.’ It is the term used for Hawaiian Patriotism which is rooted in a deep appreciation of the Oneness and the deep interconnectedness of all living things.
She later sang her song Aloha ʻĀina for us from her new album ‘Prayer Album.’ Have a listen to Ku’ulei here.
Aloha ʻĀina is particularly relevant at the present time, given the current political unrest and distress caused by abuse of power and abuse of the lands of Hawaii. The goals of the Aloha ʻĀina movement today ‘include the harmonization of human health with the health of the land, through the culturally pono (righteous) protection and care of the natural resources that sustain it.’
My parents passed on a deep reference, respect and appreciation of the land. That has flowed down through our ancestors. I love the Earth.I love finding ways to reduce my footprint. Spending time outdoors and walking in nature is one of my favourite things to do. Most days when I go walking, I am looking for something, time for myself, peace of mind, fresh air, grounding and re-connection. The land willingly provides all that.
For today, I just say thank you. To the land, the Earth, our ʻĀina. In this ritual of gratitude, I begin with love and appreciation for my physical body. It is my very own patch of Earth and I am responsible for its care. It carries me about so patiently this lifetime.
I extend these feelings of love and gratitude to the land of my ancestors and to far and distant lands all over the Earth. Will you join me?
With much Aloha,

'The essence of healing is saying yes to what the moment holds.
Its letting go into the unknown while realising its all holy.
Life and death, pain and ease, triumph and tragedy.
The essence of healing is staying awake to this breath and the next,
Each breath establishing a connection to that which cannot be seen.
A mystery flowing in and flowing out.
Small self and vast Self meeting in the heart.’ ~ Danna Faulds
