This kakau is named Halaloa and it sits on my left shoulder. Many distinct ideas come forth: one is the enduring breath of the sun. The sun, la, her-alds change, growth, and transformation. Ha, breath, is the fundamental animating principle of life that connects us to our mystical origins. Halaloa also holds the image of hala, of death, of change, of stripping away. Inside the circle there are two main images: a wave and a koru, or fern. It represents ocean and earth—elemental forms. There is an outside, exterior knowing, and then there is an inside, interior one. The koru represents our evolution as humans. The five lines around Halaloa represent healing. I believe it is time to heal. Heal ourselves, heal others, heal this world.

Ke welina mai nei. I wanted to spend a few moments with you before you dip into the muliwai—where sea water meets fresh; where theory meets practice. There is life there. As with the ideas you are about to read. They serve as a threshold into which I am now entered—a new seeing of the world that is wider than ever imagined. It began by listening to our people. I learned of our distinctness. Our Light. Our commonality with the world. Because I am a philosopher by passion, it was named epistemology. It was a word I did not fully understand because there was nothing dimensional about the term. Nothing. But this is no longer the case. It is now fully dimensioned in every single moment of my day.
