Suffice it to say, this book is well written and a power house of subtle and not so subtle teachings for any spiritual seeker. It hits you like a ton of bricks. Abraham was no wilting flower even as a four years old. He tread where few would dare to go. He lived life on the edge. In my view the only place anything is 'real' and significant. The kicker is that he forced his students to do likewise.
I wonder how many people in contemporary culture could survive this type of teaching, and my guess is few!
This is s book not for the weak of heart! Abraham was a great man and lived his life to its fullest.
Mahalo nui loa, Tamara Ho'okahi for putting yourself "on the line", so to speak, in carrying forward the work of this brilliant, uncontainable being you called teacher, partner and husband (and who knows what else). All of us who knew him, or wanted to, are richer for these stories and reminders that we each contain our own brilliance and magnificence and when we acknowledge and express the "yes" the universe conspires to support us.
I feel that it is important to honor the work of Abraham as he has touched so many lives. Many people try to imitate his work who didn't really know him and perhaps this book will bring more understanding of what he was about and what he shared with the world. Tamara was the one who was closest to his work and she is the one who needed to tell his story. Kahu Abraham Kawai'i changed lives and he is missed.
Mahalo Tamara for sharing these beautiful stories and I love GETTING TO YES!
You have been a tremendous support on my journey as well and I wish you much luck and love in your future!
It is time for us to honor those that are willing to share with ALL the essence of Aloha healing! I am sharing this with my lomi students as well!
Gratitude and Aloha
