I am delighted to announce the release of my new book, Opening the Aloha Mind: Healing Self, Healing the World with Ho‘oponopono. The book’s spiritual release occurred last Saturday when it was blessed at the Hauola City of Refuge, Kaua‘i by Kahuna Stanley Kopa Kaluahine and Annaleah Atkinson. Please visit the book’s home page (same title). It is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
I have been working with three principles identified by Hawaiian elder Hale Kealohalani Makua, given in The Bowl of Light by Hank Wesselman. These are clearly not just airy aphorisms but precepts that represent states of being to be cultivated with attention over time, much like The Four Agreements taught by Don Miguel Ruiz. The three kapus (sacred directives) of the spiritual warrior:
Love all that you see—with humility
Live all that you feel—with reverence
Know all that you possess—with discipline
