Washingtonian amused by fellow traveler’s complaints
First of all, I love receiving The Garden Island news via email.
The island of Kauai is our favorite vacation spot and over the past 25 years we have enjoyed the aloha spirit we receive from the island residents on each and every visit. We will be spending our 30th wedding anniversary on Kauai in October.
As a resident of Washington for more than 50 years, I was more than amused by the Washington resident who recently complained about her injury at Waimea Canyon after she climbed over a guardrail. Perhaps this same person should stay near home and try a trail walk on either Mount Rainier or Mount Baker so she could complain about dirt, snow, rain or trees — perhaps the mountains should be plowed and cleared for her convenience.

Supreme Court wrong
Regarding the same-sex marriage issue, five out of the nine Supreme Court judges are wrong. They knowingly misinterpreted the 14th Amendment of the Constitution to further advance their liberal agenda. This was not only wrong, it is a disgrace.
I have seen many celebrating this ruling as a victory. Read your history; when the morals of a nation declines, the country declines also.
So what you are really celebrating is our nation’s demise. It already started; our politicians — even the president — bankrupted our nation.
Our children who are not even born yet are in debt. Our basic freedoms are slowly being taken away in the name of political correctness. As an associate pastor and a believer in the Holy Scriptures, I believe there is only one hope for our nation.
There’s a Bbible verse that says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
As you can see, this is not a time for celebration, it’s a time for prayer and repentance.
TM could help Hawaii become lighthouse
“A pod of about a dozen dolphins showed up during the women’s final of the 2014 Rincon Classic in Ventura County, an occurrence organizers called ‘magic.”
“Two dolphins swim in tandem during the women’s final on Sunday afternoon. The animals were in full glory, an event organizer marveled.”
A surge of energy went through the thousands of spectators as the dolphins rode three different waves for a total of about 45 seconds, reported the Daily News.
What can animals and humans have in common? How about friendship?
“In 1974 it was discovered in 11 cities in the USA that when the number of people participating in the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technology reached 1 percent of the city population the trend of rising crime rate was reversed, indicating increasing order and harmony in the life of the whole city. Research scientists named this the Maharishi Effect.
The Maharishi Effect is like a lighthouse which spreads harmonizing light.
The unique effectiveness of the Maharishi Effect in preventing social violence, terrorism, and war has been confirmed by more than 50 demonstrations and 23 scientific studies.
A dolphin diving deep into the ocean can create ripples spreading on the surface. TM theoretically engages the deeper, wave function of the universe.
The source of the Maharishi Effect is brains becoming more orderly from diving deep into the ocean of bliss consciousness within. The brain’s electroencephalographic waves dance in tandem, synchronously, and create a ripple like effect, reducing the regional crime rate.
This is also like all canoers paddling in tandem to propel a Hawaiian canoe in one direction.
Why not teach TM to school students to create an ideal unified Hawaiian society to become a lighthouse for the world?
