Maui is very healing, the sites and the sea are spectacular. The colors are magnified in everything around you. It is the kind of peaceful resolve that you are able to observe your surroundings and the complete wonderment in it, outside of your “self.” The contemplation that occurs within your spirit becomes more available here without distractions, than anywhere else. The easiest way to explain it is having your eyes wide open during meditation.
Maui is a physical place that most people cherish and love but Maui can be anywhere that you find peace within your heart. It has become a consciousness that I carry with me into places that are a little bit more distracting. It is my reset button that I hold dear to my heart. Ask yourself in reflection to this last year, “Where was I the most peaceful?” Then take that memory and make it your reset button. The chaos will diminish and the gratitude will unfold.
Take with you into next year all of the wonderment from 2014 and leave whatever didn’t serve your highest good. Laugh more, live more and then pay it forward. You are loved, start from there.
