Caring for everything that can be seen, heard, smelled, tasted, touched, sensed, and imagined as if it were the most important thing in the universe had been lived as a spiritual practice in Hawaiʻi from antiquity up to as late as the 1980s. Today, it’s called the ‘ALOHA spirit,’ but to the Hawaiians of old, living ALOHA was a part of the culture. To feed a stranger passing by – that is pure aloha. We need to start letting ourselves live ALOHA once again – or more accurately: be lived by ALOHA. THIS is what makes positive change in the world.
ALOHA is the spirit of all existence. It is the life force energy of the universe. It is the True Nature of Reality. It is the underlying consciousness of All That Is. ALOHA can be discovered through Tibetan Buddhist meditation to connect with and live It. Living ALOHA leads one to experience a life of generosity, loving-kindness, compassion, and virtue; thereby bringing balance, peace, and harmony to oneself, the planet and all sentient beings.
