The monastery got a call from the folks that ship containers between the islands. "You have some live plants here."
We took the 11-mile journey to the dock, to find 13 boxes of plants. They were a gift from a Big Island grower who wanted to share this amazing flower with the monastery. 180 plants in all, red, yellow, pink. This plant is called Guzmania. Thanks you, David! They will bring a new color to the temple gardens.
The idea of Monistic Theism is seen in the three perfections of God Siva. Theism is the face of evolving, monism is always the Truth. We have pure consciousness and the source of pure consciousness, Absolute Reality. The soul body is maturing. The nucleus of your soul and Parameshvara are identical, you just have to realize it. Imkaif, Parasiva, one of the three perfections--you can't describe it.
