It's a rainy Wednesday morning here in Honolulu. I'm still fresh from dreams, and fresh into this one called "Wednesday morning in Honolulu in the time of corrupt warring governments". Hurray for Harry Belefonte. He told the truth. "The President is a liar." And to see it told in the muck of innuendo brings a shine, let's some light in.
I've begun to think that this life is a dream. Not dream in the Disney-sense of "everything's going to turn out alright-you'll find a Prince or Princess and live happily ever after". That "dream" has ruined many lives. No, not that. Rather a complex, ironic, paradoxical, mythic, dynamic and rich dreaming. This earthly dreaming is the teaching and learning field. When you start to look real close it's moving energy. The other side is just right here. Where we've been and where we're going is right here. Everything matters. Every thought is creative.
