What is Aloha?
Aloha is one of the most beautiful and powerful words in the world:
Aloha is a Hawaiian word typically associated with greeting another person with hello or good-bye. The literal meaning of aloha is “the presence of breath” or “the breath of life.” It comes from “Alo,” meaning presence, front and face, and “ha,” meaning breath. It also has a deeper impact on the Hawaiian culture. For the Hawaiians, it is “The Aloha Spirit” – a unique way of living, the ultimate lifestyle, and the secret to a full and happy life.
It’s the secret to a full and happy life:
Aloha is not only a word, it is a way of living, an attitude and expresses guidelines to help us in our lives – kindness, patience, compassion, respect, togetherness, affection, empathy, peace, & love.
Aloha means we are able to recognize and appreciate the uniqueness and differences each of us bring into this world. Honor and respect your family, friends, and all the people who pass through your life. Aloha does not pass judgement on others for it always trusts, always hopes and always protects.
It is that aloha, caring and spirituality that allows us to build on each others strengths and join together on this magnificent journey we call “Life”.
The ripple effect of aloha:
Its deep meaning starts by teaching ourselves to love our own beings first and afterwards to spread the love to others.
A life of Aloha is one when the heart is so full that it has the power to influence others around you with your spirit. The best part of Aloha is that the more you express your love and compassion for yourself and those around you, the more it comes back to you.
Use the word aloha with a pure heart and good intention.
Be guided by aloha and make good choices.
Live aloha wherever you are!
