While I had a wonderful time swimming with the dolphins on the Big Island I also was aware that the island is sending a warning ( increased VOG)to it’s human inhabitants to act in ways that support a healthy environment. Two years ago another vent opened up in Volcano National Park.. spewing more sulpher dioxide and other toxic chemicals that are referred to as VOG. It causes resperitory illness in humans, harms vegetation, and I think has contributed to the drought.
My suggestion is for people on the island to stop growing GMO crops, stop using herbicides and pesticides, stop drilling geothermal wells, and stop all military activity. Then maybe Pele will respond by reducing the VOG emissions. edit my essay
I am back in Colorado after having spent 9 days in Hawaii. I had two trip participants and we had two wonderful days swimming with the wild Hawaiian spinner dolphins. order essay There were over 111 in the bay and we were with them for a couple hours each time, interacting with them and observing them interact with each other. We all felt a deep sense of peace, joy, and love.
Personal rejuvination is one of the most beneficial experiences of spending a week in Hawaii. It comes from relaxing in a tropical setting, swimming with the wild spinner dolphins, being with a group of loving people, breathing in the fragrant air, and absorbing the natural island manna. order essay
Personal rejuvination releases more energy to move forward in life. People who have come on my previous trips became clearer about their life, priorities, and purpose.
I have had a busy year and am looking forward to being in Hawaii and holding the space for our human ‘pod’ to enjoy all that the island paradise of Hawaii has to offer.
The dolphins live in a sensuous world and that is perhaps one reason that they appear to be so happy and fullfilled. As many humans know, water is a nurturing and supportive element to be in. We experience it through touch as soft, silky, smooth & full. When we swim the movement of water over our skin soothes and relaxes our nervous system and stimulates our endocrine system to release pleasurable endorphins. We become happy and playful with each other and laugh like children when in the water. order essay
So no wonder dolphins do not intentionally cause harm to one another our their surrounding environment. They are too busy enjoying the watery environment that they are swimming in !!!!
To be continued…..
Most of my life I have been sensitive to the harm that humans cause one another and our environment through wars and destructive business practices. I have always lived in a way that respected the lives of my fellow man and all the species on our beautiful planet as we are really one interconnected family. Because most humans are so self absorbed and narcissistic we do not take into consideration how the earth’s environment and species suffer when we do act harmfully. And often when one environmentally caring human tries to tell another human that they are causing harm they won’t listen, don’t care, and keep living in harmful ways. So, I kept asking myself how are we humans going to change our lifestyle to supporting the health of our planet, each other and all species when we have so many ego barriers to hearing a message from another human. order essay
And then in 1989 the dolphins swam into my consciousness and began telling me that they had a message to communicate to humans and that maybe humans would, through empathy and personal dolphin experiences, hear the messages from the dolphins since they were not listening to each other. And that is what happened- people began to hear the dolphin messages of love, peace and joy. Why? Because they felt unconditionally loved, appreciated, and a sense of belonging to a human/ dolphin family pod. People woke up to the fact that dolphins are an equally evolved species- highly intelligent, empathic, caring, sensitive, loving, emotional, communicative, happy, aware and deserving to be treated with loving kindness. They began to live their lives with compassion and consideration for themselves, each other and all species.
So let’s pay it forward and get the world leaders and corporate executives that are causing harm to each other, dolphins, other species and our environment to take a long swim with the dolphins and each other. Then they just might hear the messages from the dolphins and learn a new dolphin trick- that of living and sharing with others a life filled with loving kindness towards all beings.
