Today is Sunday, August 19th, 2018 and a third ‘Ole moon has risen around 2:10-ish for most of Hawai‘i nei. Mahina ‘Olekūkolu will set around some time between 1:20 -1:35am for most of the populated islands. These cycles have been happening so long in both humans and the universe that is inconceivable to understand with the intellect alone. But the na‘au understands time and space in ways that perhaps the mind never will. Keep trying to figure it out. You will keep getting closer and closer, while the reality that we are trying to relearn remains out of reach.
The mind loves to learn, but the na‘au...it just knows. The english language and text itself has given birth to much of the modern thought infrastructure in both our minds and our communities. Static boxes, so firmly set in place that our movements in mind, heart and na‘au are confined. Kūpuna lived life with principles that required flexibility to match the movement of life.
Could we redesign Waikīkī around the fundamental need of fresh water and...food? Everything looks so stuck there. Concrete buildings and paved roads donʻt want to move. To do so takes a ridiculous amount of time, money and energy. If we dig deep into the seven generations ethos then we can step back to contemplate if hotels, paved roads and channelized water can work for another 100 - 140 years.
Kūpuna considered such things without thought because the na‘au already has this realization built into it. Seven generations? How about eternity.
All we can do is our best. But the paradigm in which we "get it" requires us to remove those things that are interfering with the process. There are political events that need to take place as well as social and economic shifts. But if we canʻt get the ‘eha, hewa and hihia out the system our foundation will still be unstable. E kala mai. Setting it free one step at a time. Ka‘anani‘au.
