Aloha is more than a friendly way to say hello and goodby, aloha is a way of life centered in the breath and the divine presence that connects us all. Alo meaning “presence”, “front”, “face”, or “share”. Ha is the “breath of life” or “essence of life” so essentially
Aloha is like saying “this breath brings us face to face with the essence of life that we all share” or “the breath we share makes us one”…
Aloha is sort of like saying Namaste which essentially means “the divine teacher in me recognizes and honors the divine teacher in you”.
In many traditions the element of air, or breath, is associated with the essence of wisdom and clear perception.
Weather one is sitting in zen meditation, practicing yoga or pumping iron in the gym, a slow steady controlled breath is key. Taking time to breath deep clears the mind and puts one squarely in the present moment where all magic resides, and when one is centered in the breath it is impossible to be in a distorted vibration of fear or anger.
As defined by the University of Hawaii, to live Aloha “is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the self.”
The definition of the word Aloha in the Hawaiian language means affection, peace, compassion and mercy, (all words associated with the frequency of the color blue).
These vibrations are exactly what one begins to experience within the crystalline water matrix of the self and the world around, as one remembers to breath deep into the belly to calm the stormy sea of the solar plexus, allowing the breath of life to rise and expand like a radiant sun from the heart center and bathe the mind in the clarity of peace and harmony.
To be centered in the breath is to be centered in the oneness of the ALL. For where does the breath end and the sky begin?
Aloha my friend.
