Work continued on the Peace Pole over the past retreat, scheduled to be delivered tomorrrow to the Hanapepe Matsunaga Peace Garden. After the hexagonal pole was roughed in with the chain saw and power planer, next it was finished off with Japanese planes. One of the placques is placed for position.
The top of the pole is pointed so that no birds will sit there.
Next, we routed in recesses for each of the six placques.
Test fit with the Japanese version of “May Peace Prevail On Earth.”
Next we use glue with epoxy to fasten them to the pole.
After oiling and making a simple stand the pole sits in front of Kadavul absorbing the shakti of Kadavul before going out to the community.
Underneath the Japanese there is a stainless steel plaque with Braille and a notice “Sponsored by the Interfaith Roundtable of Kauai” where the plan to create and put these poles into the community was born and nurtured.
There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
