Today is Thursday, August 16th 2018 and the kū moons are pau after tonight. Mahina Kūpau rises at 11:30am today and sets at 11:21pm tonight. Every island to the east of O‘ahu sees rising and settings a few minutes earlier. Kaua‘i, Nihau and beyond see rising and settings a few minutes later.
School is starting back for many. We are about to get a massive dose of western understandings given to us. Still the land is being excessively developed, the streams not reaching the ocean, houselessness due to the effects of the modern system and on and on... And herein lies the challenge. Everything readily available to prepare us for careers and jobs is not necessarily timed with the current needs right before our eyes. And the global needs are escalating. We can collect data for another 10 years to help us decide what initiatives to take, but the need for many is right now, today. For some, right here on O‘ahu the need is critical...today.
In a truly traditionally functioning, old-school community, what else would they do today but have their hands in the soil rebuilding an island whose lands are drying up and people uncared for. The kūpuna would be looking at us driving to and from work, sitting in ac classrooms and buildings with complete disbelief. We are sitting and preparing, to someday do something of value while the land we are standing on is in critical need of care now.
And yet everything is in perfect order. However, the excessive amounts of time disconnected from the land are not without consequence. So even the consequences will be part of this perfect order. "The old way is forever" means accepting and working with the cycles of time that are much, much bigger than us.
Each day would be grounded on the principle of- what does the land and kūpuna before us want today? Ka‘anani‘au
