hibiscus cooler . . .

Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. 
How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.

They said, “Don’t go chasing waterfalls” . . .  oh, but we must; we are in Hawaii.  Venturing off, with no particular destination in mind, we stumbled upon the beautiful botanical garden in Waimea.  This was a grand, escape from reality — even Hawaiian reality.  The giant, lily pond contained worlds within worlds.  Gigantic, trees felt like they held ancient secrets and deep, unspoken wisdom tucked in their roots.  Vibrant, orchids exploded from trees.  I find it interesting that there were almost no native, flowers on the islands when the first Polynesians arrived over 1500 years ago.  The bright profusion of flowering plants were mostly imported to the island from Tahiti, along with taro, bananas, and coconuts (and much more).  It seems that even in paradise, life just keeps getting better . . .  expanding, blossoming, and perhaps, surprising even herself.
