Show Notes

For those who are fortunate enough to live in Hawai'i, it is customary to utilize the term Aloha. It is used in greetings, farewells, and expressions of love. However, Aloha encompasses even more than that; it represents a way of life.

In addition to its common meanings, the word Aloha encapsulates all the necessary knowledge for righteous interaction with the natural world. These insights describe an attitude or way of life often referred to as "The Aloha Spirit" or "The Way of Aloha."

The spirit of Aloha was an important lesson imparted to the children of the past because it concerned the world of which they were a part. One early teaching goes as follows:

Aloha is about being connected to all, and all being connected to me. When there is pain, it is my pain. When there is joy, it is also mine. I hold deep respect for all that exists, as it is part of the Creator and part of me. I will not intentionally harm anyone or anything. When sustenance is required, I will only take what is necessary and explain why it is being taken. The earth, the sky, the sea are entrusted to my care, to be cherished and safeguarded. This is Hawaiian - this is Aloha!
