Draw an ensō around all that can be experienced: Tat tvam asi. Some understanding can only be achieved via emotive experience of the whole.
Horizon separates earth and sky, shoreline divides land and sea, light differentiates night and day, the Manai’a individuates. Some understanding can only be achieved via rational reductionism.
The Manai’a has foot, fin and feather to explore land, sea and sky; heart to feel; and mind to deconstruct.
Today we set out for HanaleiBay on Kauai. It is 100 miles as the seagull flies. We have strong east winds and I am hopeful that we will not have to tack too much. We will embark Waimea this afternoon and sail all night for a late morning arrival. I’m hoping for clear skies tonight. The star gazing should be extraordinary.
