Hawaiian Word of the Week – ALOHA

“Definition: love, affection, compassion, mercy, sympathy,  kindness, sentiment, grace, charity, greetings, salutation, regards, sweetheart, lover, beloved, kind, charitable, pity.
Hawaiian Dictionary – M.K. Pukui & S.H. Elbert

There are many definitions of the word aloha, but, in our modern society of today, what does the word Aloha really mean?  Hawai‘i is branded with the term, “The Aloha Spirit”, so that malihini will come and visit our beautiful islands. But the question remains, what is Aloha?

My Hawaiian cultures’ myths and legends cite many examples of parables and lessons to live the life of aloha. I believe that aloha is not just a word, but it is a practice, a life style that one strives to live every day. To strive to be charitable, tolerant, patient, loving, compassionate, charitable and graceful is a very tall order. But if we strive to practice and live this lifestyle, we will then understand the true meaning of ALOHA.

So for the next week, strive to practice ALOHA. The world will be a better place if we all live a life of ALOHA.
