The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
— Jellaludin Rumi
Stanley Kopa Kaluahine, Kahuna, spiritual teacher and beloved friend has moved from the Earth into Spirit. A warm aloha and deepest gratitude to you, dear one. May a profound reverence alight on you…
When we see disturbing news on TV, feelings of distress, anger and fear arise in us. And much as we want to do something positive, in reality what we are doing is contributing those emotions to the field, to our world.
Instead, we can use Ho’oponopono cleaning tools to clear those feelings from our subconscious, and allow God to fill the spaces with Peace.
“In the beginning was the word.” These words are vibrations that are cleaning tools: Aloha. Thank You. I Love You.
We may not have control over the first thing that comes to our mind when we witness such an event. But we can choose our second thought, and our third…
Think or say Aloha or Thank You or I Love You to clear the negative emotions and judgments that arise, as soon as you become aware. When we do this, we contribute Peace to the field, to the world.
Please join with us and many thousands of others who practice Ho’oponopono. Our deepest gratitude to Dr. ‘Ihaleakala Hew Len for this teaching.
Aloha. Thank you. I Love You. Judith and Jim
I was just interviewed on Conscious Talk Radio regarding my book Opening the Aloha Mind: Healing Self, Healing the World with Ho‘oponopono. You can listen at www.conscioustalk.net/guest_detail.php?guest=1696.
My article “What is Ho‘oponopono?” was published in Sedona, Journal of Emergence–November issue. Good summary of the process described in Opening the Aloha Mind.
What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it all the rest are not only useless but disastrous. Proof: the great travelers and colonizers of the Renaissance were, for the most part, men who perhaps were capable of the things they did precisely because they were alienated from themselves. In subjugating primitive worlds they only imposed on them, with the force of cannons, their own confusion and alienation.
