I’d like to share what I’ve discovered about the word “Aloha,” which is a Hawaiian word used when you greet a person “hello,” or when you bid a person farewell. Aloha also means “with love and affection.” It’s also an attitude or way of living life. You’ve probably heard the terms “The Spirit of Aloha” or “The Way of Aloha” — it means a way of interacting with the natural world and all those who live in that world. Living “in the spirit” or “the way” of Aloha is living by a certain code of ethics which includes, but is not limited to: love, kindness, tolerance, compassion, respect, and honor of all humanity and living things. Living “the way” also includes the thoughtful and deliberate preservation of the earth and its precious resources, the joyful sharing of oneself with others, the act of being committed to the caring and the sustainability of one’s community and to the planet, as well as the “conscious manifestation” to live life joyfully in the present. The list of meanings goes on, but clearly, Aloha means so much more than “hello” or “goodbye.”
In this portal, you’ll find suggestions and life recipes (Body, Mind, Spirit articles, PODCASTS, videos, interviews) on how you can put more ALOHA in your life! Please share them with your family and friends!
