Living on Hawaii Island has its rare delights, and also its dangerous threats. Fiery fissures open up in roadways and families are forced to flee ahead of Kilauea Volcano’s recent eruption. My heart reaches out to those affected, students and friends and neighborhoods.

Ninety miles from the crater, I was shaken during Friday’s 6.9 quake, the most powerful on the island since 1975. There have been on average 110 earthquakes per day all week long, but that’s not the worst of it. Residents of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens have seen 10 fissures open up, coughing up orange fountains of spark and spatter in their backyards and roadways.

Already warned that an eruption was possible, friends still don’t find it easy to evacuate. They have lost 35 structures and homes, engulfed by the molten flows, but that’s not the only concern. Volcanic eruptions can release potentially dangerous sulfur dioxide and high levels of the gas have been found. Luckily there has been no loss of life, but it’s a full-time effort to stay safe. One of my students spent several days helping move farm animals away from danger, and more than 2000 people are exiting the threatened area.

It is highly unusual to see the vents so far from Kilauea volcano, says a spokesman for the civil defense agency.

—————————————————————————————- “My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus.” – Stephen Hawking


When life throws us a comet, a curve ball, or a volcanic eruption and evacuation, we may find ourselves face-down in the dirt, feeling empty and burnt to the bone, wondering if we can go on.

These are the kinds of feelings we’ve all had at one point or another. Losing a home, a loved one, a beloved job, a sense of security or a specific sense of oneself – these losses come at great cost, and they also bring great lessons.

Our difficult stories and experiences of falling and failing are exactly the ways we grow to become more mature, more awake, and more alive.

If we’re mindful, gratitude comes, and wisdom prevails, as it did for Stephen Hawking, someone who found himself face-down on the ground when he discovered at the age of 21 he had with Lou Gehrig’s disease (also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS), which robbed Hawking of most of his motor function over the years.

He died on March 14, but for the last decade of his life, Hawking could communicate only by twitching a single cheek muscle, which was picked up by a special sensor. Still, he brought cosmology to ordinary people in best-selling books, including “A Brief History of Time” and “The Universe in a Nutshell.” He accomplished all of this while living in unbelievable difficulty.

He brought us knowledge of black holes, the mysterious light-gobbling behemoths that would be even more mysterious if famed cosmologist hadn’t plumbed their inky depths.

Hawking actually proved some rigorous mathematical theorems about Einstein’s equations for gravity and showed that unique “singularities” exist, one of them being the region inside of a black hole. He showed that, adding quantum mechanics to the game, you could show that, in fact, black holes were not really black; they emit radiation which comes from “virtual particles.” These quantum wave functions, or quiffs (QWFs) are constantly popping into and out of existence in the bizarre quantum realm.

Thus, from the darkest spot comes radiance, or light, no matter how dark the black hole or how inky the dark night of the Soul. Physicists call it “popping a quiff.”

That might account from some of Hawking’s courage and high spirits in the face of his disability, which inspired millions. “It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years.”

Many have been there before us, and they have stories to tell that can lift us back up. We can lean on the shoulders of others who traveled through the darkness and found the light.

“If you are disabled, it is probably not your fault, but it is no good blaming the world or expecting it to take pity on you. One has to have a positive attitude and must make the best of the situation that one finds oneself in; if one is physically disabled, one cannot afford to be psychologically disabled as well.”
– Stephen Hawking
