World Unity Spirit Dance
***A "Peace Through Unity Spirit" Blessing***
Just as window sills reflect
the sun's light through the windows from the heart of the sun, we
reflect one another's spirit-light through the windows of our own
Likewise PAEPAE, "sill of the
temple entry," has always been at the heart of spiritual
significance for the Hawaiian temple, as the
window for the light of the Holy Spirit.
The sacred dancer
transcends all boundaries of race, culture, and
religion to connect in unity of spirit with the UHANE,
"soul", of humanity. In this painting, two dancers from opposite
sides of the world commune from the heart through the light of the rainbow in a shared vision of MALUHIA
, "peace", in reverence for all beings.
The belly dance and hula dance are ancient sacred art forms
centered in the hips and belly, the place of KUMUKAHI,
"origin", of Life. These naturally rejuvinating movements
traditionally stem from an attitude of spiritual passion, devotion,
offering and celebration.
The bellydancer wears Zills,
the pairs of finger-cymbals comparable to the ILI-ILI,
the hula dancer's hand-held pairs of stones.
These musical accompaniments from West and East invoke the Divine energy which
inspires hearts throughout the world further into the spirit of unity
literally "red rainbow segment," is infused with KAONA, "multiple
layers of meaning:" ONOHI means "eye, or center;" `ULA translates as
"sacred, regal, royal, blood, and spirit;" ULA is "flame."
KAHI MEA IAIA KA `ONOHI O KA PAHU HULA is the name of the central HULA
("red-flame heartbeat drum") rhythm-keeper. The great goddess of
HULA, LAKA, is honored with the red LEHUA's offerings; the hula
dancer in this painting wears the precious LEHUA blossom HAKU, or head
garland, as well as the royal red TAPA PA`U, "skirt," and anklets of
MAILE vine, also holy to LAKA.
In parallel, the bellydancer ritually adorns her own hair, hands and
feet with the red henna, in meditation with this sacred blood of the
Earth. With KU`IKAHI's "feeling of unity" awareness that the blood of
all beings is sacred, we people of every color,
as "children of the rainbow," naturally
treat one other, and our Mother Earth, with dignity and
May the Light of this blessing
emanate peace in your life always.
