This was posted on the Kingdom of Hawaii blog. This is a beautifully composed letter, and I feel it is significant that he has “tuned in” to the rest of the planet when he requests a daily meditation/prayer for peace at 11 AM each day. He writes:
“Therefore, let us unite in prayer and meditation that our hearts, thoughts and actions are in accord seeking unity and peace throughout these Hawaiian Islands, Guam, Japan, the West Coast of the United States and the world.
“As such, I humbly request that at 11:00 a.m., every morning for just a few minutes until this crisis is over, that everyone throughout Hawai’i and the world stop and pray for peace, calm and unity to Akua the Great Spirit.”
This surely aligns with all of those who are gathering for meditation and prayer for peace during the 8-21-17 solar eclipse, at 11:11 PDT (see this Kp blog post, and this one). This is an important time, in my view, and the King’s request emphasizes that.
“Today, I send you my warm aloha. I am here among you, looking at the situation with North Korea from all angles. I know of your grave concerns as many of you wonder if the threat to Hawai’i will come to pass. Please do not let your fears overcome a calm heart which is what Iencourage you to adopt as this is the best way to protect our beloved Islands…”
