a healing journey 

Mahaloness is a way of being, it is not a dogma, nor is it a religion, it is derived from the word mahalo, it is an extension mahalo, it is to be in state of thankfulness and in a state of Aloha, taught to me by an elder who felt compelled to pass along some of his wisdom, his name was Kamillo, shared insights into his people, played his ukulele until dawn, and the shared stories of Hawaii, ancient to present. The birth of Mahaloness started when hälts, the author and artist behind Mahaloness, was in a period of conflict between being an artist and trying to make a living with his art. This created conflict between making art to survive versus making art to heal. The line was drawn in the sand and a tug of war ensued, back and forth, trying to find balance, which seemed ever so close, yet so far away. Following years of this back and forth hälts reached a crossroad, choose to be a struggling artist, with a cynical attitude, choose a path to spirit reclamation and a chance to fill the shoes of healer. He made the right choice. Thank you and Mahaloness to those who have witnessed some the journey, hälts remains humble in is here to serve.

Moments in creative space with hälts, there is a little bit of everything here, including a hälts hybrid (top) and some fotos from a recent mushroom healing forest forage camping sojourn with a beautiful friend, and an elders path hälts spent a large part of the summer working on, so many lessons, so much wisdom, and as a friend pointed out, a lifelong endeavour.

a flower child in dark times 

I was talking to a friend today about some artist woes, the attempt to sustain art in a world that demands you to play by its rules, he simply said to me,

‘Dude I hear you. You are an artist making his way in a world that batters you. This is a storm now bro. Its gonna take time. You are confronted with a meaningless reality. Society tries to pound meaning into it for us. But resist bro! Make your own meaning. Im here as buddy.’

To this hälts replies Mahaloness, and a deep soulful thank you, carry on!

The following is a collection of hälts hybrid art, minimotion and soundscapes all made by hälts or at least composed by hälts because let’s face it we all influence each other, inspire each other and push each other, this is what makes life great rather than headlines news telling us it isn’t.

hälts variety show 

Along the artist path 

many signs one will pass

Many rivers one will cross

Many dreams will be seeked 

Many friends will come and go

Many lessons will be learned 

unlearned 

full circle

with intermittent moments of brilliance

On point 

these moments get me by

These moments make this life 

wonderful.

What can I say that hasn’t already been said before, life is short, may it be joyful.

from paint brushes to stones

I came across a patch of flowers and forgot who I was.

touch earth

To make a path

one has to be the path

touch the earth

be earth

touch the dirt

be dirt

touch the stone 

be stone.
