This mindset isn't something I will relinquish. Ever. I suppose it's something some babies feel in the arms of their moms and dads, this comfort I felt in Kauai. Now I'm not going to pack my bags and move there, but a lot of people visit, then stay. There's a balm in Kauai. There's something about the way the ocean wraps its arms around the tiny island that's quite comforting.

Kauai is the first time I've ever attached to the conviction, that the basis of all life is loving kindness. Sure, I knew this comfort with my late husband, but this is the first time I've experienced it on my own. It's not some ephemeral feeling made up of island breezes and indulgence. It's deeply spiritual, like my being is secure in the arms of divine love. Now, every morning I set my intention toward this grace and ease. From this loving attachment, all blessings flow. It's like I can be what I've always been, a dependable warrior type, but now I am blessed with love. Pretty cool!
Many blessings to you!
