Every morning, Tino sits down to start his day with his early meditation and a couple more during the day. Consistant, focus and relentless, he has been building his cabins over the last few years. They are located one-third of the way up the Mauna Loa mountain, his home among the lava, where he now welcomes you. An introspective kind of guy, able to flow through a mundane conversation, but not interested or invested in gossip, negative or destructive mental gymnastics that do not support or help introspection and self discovery. He is totally attracted and devoted to fall ever more deeply in love with the unnameable and mysterious yet obvious source that brought him to this world. In fact, he is inlove with that. Tino is always willing and ready to sit and listen in a deeply spiritual way- one to one, friend to friend- with anyone who feels the need or the attraction to talk in order to purge, to heal, to introspect, to enquire. He does well in public and can have fun if he feels like . And yet, he is always ready and quick to be alone, at ease and intimate with himself, in fact, he loves to be alone and in solitude. Tino can cry very deeply when his heart is touched. He can laugh and joke about himself and life in general with ease. When taking care of business he means what he says and appears serious, yet internally he knows he is a kid pretending to play the part of an adult which he does well. Do not expect him to be anything but what is at the moment. Yet, he is commonly relaxed and calm in an ongoing internal inquiry. He loves cleanliness, order and symmetry in his home. But with so many projects to take care of, he also has no problem with relaxing those qualities and moving along. Don't try to get to know him because you never will. He's still getting to know himself as the minutes go by, and it is always an ongoing surprise, sometimes pleasant, sometimes not, but always worthwhile. This life is short -- so short -- why not invest it in finding the deepest peace and love residing in our own heart. Finding out who we really are. Tino has already made his choice -- his choice is Yes. With that Yes, life has turned out to be an even bigger and greater confirmation to love. An ever deeper and deeper love and truth. Some people like him, some don't. Some people love him, some people don't. Who cares! He loves them all. In short, he's just the same amazing mistery appearing as another human being, no more or less special or ordinary -- just like you.
Ask him any questions. He is an open book straight and honest without compromise.
Tino does not watch TV, read newspapers, nor does he use the internet for other than business. So what does he do? He is falling in love. How? By an internal enquiry, a silence sitting and a willingness to go in deeper and closer investigating, dissecting, enquiring and turning off the addiction to the mind. And thus, coming back home.
So it is that this spot has turn into a support to those who want Peace and Stillness. A quiet place. But this is only a start. The real spot and place of peace is within you. Find out.
This place is set up for you to come in and follow the signs and direction without the pressence of Tino around. So feel absolutely welcome. If you call to inform arrival time, he will be around to welcome you and show you the grounds, unless he is away from home. But please,
do not expect him to give you the attention of a traditional host since this is a private and solitude inducing environment. Any tyime together would be a bonus that is not part of the plans but a surprise. In this way there is no pressure of any kind. In short; Feel free to be.
However, if you are move to meet, go ahead, he is more than happy to meet you heart to heart and sit with you for a nice cup of tea, or coffee, a little conversation, or perhaps five minutes of deep silence together . It can be like a fire. It will burn you. Could you bare it? He can. For Silence is, who we really are.
ALOHA, PEACE AND TRUTH TO ALL.
