Na Pule: Prayer for Invoking Aid from Your Higher Genius

I invoke the Light of God
Within me.
I am a clear and perfect
Light is my Guide.

I know the Laws of Nature are you, Lady.
Keep me mindful that I step upon
Your body with your feet;
That my sorrows are your sorrows;
That I as a healthy priest
Makes all things sound.
I feel your breath in the wind;
Your hand in mine.
Keep me sincere.
Give me your work,
which is to be joyous
and to tend all things,
because all things live, of themselves
and with your spirit.
Your will through mine:
And as I will it,
So shall it be.

Na 'Oli: Ho'oponopono - Ritual for Making It Right

This was the topic for my February 8, 2010, show, "Da Morning Malasada," on my BlogTalkRadio show called Da Coconut Wireless ... check out that show to get the full flavor and effect of my message, below.


Although the philosophy of Living Aloha is simple to follow, the ancients knew that eventually, problems would arise that would need to be resolved. Hence, came ho'oponopono, the way to make things right again, because what is entangled can be made right again through righteous action.

This ancient problem-solving method was used in the family when illness or trouble threatened the harmony and unity of the family unit. Today, the ritual is used by individuals, social workers and businesses. Even local police stations in Hawai'i use this method! Morrnah K. Simeona, the late Hawaiian elder and teacher, taught ho'oponopono across the country and even presented it at the United Nations. The traditional process is begun by a family member who asks the family to gather. An elder presides over the session, which begins with a prayer and ends with a prayer and a feast. It can take hours or days and works best when everyone speaks in a spirit of truth and openness. The ritual is, as follows:

Prayer (pule ho'oimua)
Identifying the problem (kukulu kumuhana)
Stating the transgression (hala)
Discussion (mahiki)
Identifying the negative entanglement (hihia)
Sharing of feelings (mana'o)
Confession (mihi)
Release the problem (kala)
Cutting off the problem (oki)
Summary and reaffirmation of bonds (pani)
Closing prayer (pule ho'opau)

Opening Prayer - PULE HO'OIMUA

Wise Ones of all Nations,
Answer our prayers.
Teach us to go within
And know that the wisdom,
the answers,
are already within each of us.

Affirmations (spoken at Pani stage)

Aloha au ia oe
Noi e kala 'ia, ho'okamakamaka
Kala mai ia'a
Ho'omaika'i, mahalo ...

I love you
Please forgive me
I am sorry
I thank you.

Closing Prayer - PULE HO'OPAU

O, great eyeball of the sun,
Please take all this bundle of wrongdoing.
Take it out to the West with you.
And, as you go down again, to your rest,
Please take all the faults and trespasses that were committed.
Lay all of this in the depth of the sea,
never more to come back.


Next time there is a break in Lokahi, unity, within your 'Ohana ... either at work, or at home ... practice Ho'oponopono to repair the holes in your Nets and remind you all of the ties that bind us together as One 'Ohana --practice Aloha, unconditional love, every day and be safe, be happy, be healthy and live in peace!

E ku i ka mana kakou,

Poem: "About Fear," by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be
Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, Fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
Give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.


This is a powerful affirmation ... may it serve you.

Poem: "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night," by Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave, by crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Theosophy: On Veganism - The Gospel of The Holy Twelve

Quoting from Chapter XVII - A Fourfold Twelve are sent forth (by Jesus), and forbidden to eat what is gotten by taking life.  They who take not up their cross are not worthy of Him.

.   .   .   .   .

(18:7) -- "Annoint and heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils; freely ye have received; freely give.  Provide neither gold nor silver nor brass in your purses, nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his food; and eat that which is set before you, but of that which is gotten by taking life touch not, for it is not lawful to you."

(18:8) -- "And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till ye go thence.  And when ye come into an house solute it.  And if the house be worthy your peace will come upon it, but if it be not worthy your peace will return to you."

(18:9) -- "Be ye wise as serpents and harmless as doves.  Be ye innocent and undefiled.  The Son of man is not come to destroy but to save; neither to take life, but to give life to body and soul."

(18:10) -- And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna."

Na 'Oli: Ritual for the Children Of The Rainbow

Tradition dictates that this offeratory 'Awa Ceremony hula be done to the beat of a Pahu drum ...

'Amama 'ua noa!

He Pule no Pele


O Pele la ko’u akua:
Miha ka lani, miha ka honua.
Awa iku, awa lani;
Kai awaawa, ka awa nui a Hiiaka,
I kua i Mauli-ola;
He awa kapu no na wahine.
E kapu!

Ka’i kapu kou awa, e Pele a Honua-mea;
E kala, e Haumea wahine,
O ka wahine i Kilauea,
Nana i eli a hohonu ka lua
O Mau-wahine, o Kupu-ena,
O na wahine i ka inu-hana awa.
E ola na ’kua malihini!


I kama’a-ma’a la i ka pua-lei;
E loa ka wai apua,
Ka pii’na i Ku-ka-la-ula;
Hoopuka aku i Puu-lena,
Aina a ke Akua i noho ai.

Kanaenae a ke Akua malihini;
O ka’u wale iho la no la, o ka leo,
He leo wale no, e-e!
E ho-i!
Eia ka ai!


A Prayer to Pele


Lo, Pele's the god of my choice:
Let heaven and earth in silence wait
Here is awa, potent, sacred,
Bitter sea, great Hiiaka's root;
'Twas cut at Mauli-ola
Awa to the women forbidden,
Let it tabu be!

Exact be the rite of your awa,
O Pele of the sacred land.

Proclaim it, mother, Haumea,
Of the goddess of Kilauea;
She who dug the pit world-deep,
And Mau-wahine and Kupu-ena,
Who prepare the awa for drink.
A health to the stranger gods?


Bedeck now the board for the feast;
Fill up the last bowl to the brim;
Then pour a draught in the sun-cave
Shall flow to the mellow haze,
That tints the land of the gods.

All hail to the stranger gods!
This my offering, simply a voice,
Only a welcoming voice.
Turn in!
Lo, the feast!

Reflecting On Saturn's Return

Saturn comes back around to show you everything 
Let's you choose what you will, will not see and then 
Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again 
Spits you out like a child, light and innocent

On the surface of the world right now there is
war and violence and things seem dark.
But calmly and quietly at the same time,
something else is happening underground.

An inner revolution is taking place,
and certain individuals are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution.
From the inside out.
From the ground up.
This is a Global operation.

A Spiritual Conspiracy.

There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.
You won't see us on the T.V.
You won't read about us in the newspaper.
You won't hear about us on the radio.
We don't seek any glory.
We don't wear any uniform.
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.
Most of us work anonymously.

We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country and culture of the world.

Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice.
We go undercover.
We remain behind the scenes.
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit,
but simply that the work gets done.
Occasionally we spot each other in the street;
we give a quiet nod and continue on our way.
During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs.
But behind the false storefront, at night is where the real work takes place.

Some call us the Conscious Army.

We are slowly creating a new world
with the power of our minds and hearts.
We follow, with passion and joy.
Our orders come from the Central Spiritual Intelligence.
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs
when no one is looking
Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~
Movies ~ Kind words ~ Smiles ~ Meditation and prayer ~
Dance ~ Social activism ~ Websites Blogs ~
Random acts of kindness ...
We each express ourselves
in our own unique ways
with our own unique gifts and talents.

"Be the change you want to see in the world."
That is the motto that fills our hearts.

We know it is the only way real transformation takes place.
We know that quietly and humbly
we have the power of all the oceans combined.
Our work is slow and meticulous,
like the formation of mountains.
It is not even visible at first glance.
And yet, with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries to come.

Love is the new religion of the 21st century.

You don't have to be a highly educated person
or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it.
It comes from the intelligence of the heart,
embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

Nobody else can do it for you.
We are now recruiting.
Perhaps you will join us --
Or, already have.
All are welcome.
The door is open!

Theosophy: On Being An Initiate Answering The Call

I have found that these past several years with the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn to be a harsh test of my perceptions, character and moral fiber. What does that mean, exactly?  Simply this: do I walk my talk?

For me, I had to make a choice: hold on to my Ego and justify it at all costs, or, take a breath and step back to look at the larger lesson behind the situation and make the right choice applying what Na Kupuna (my Elders) taught me about Unity (Lokahi), Family ('Ohana) and Unconditional Love (Aloha). Let me say that I surprised myself entirely in the position I now find myself in today, but given a replay, I would act in the same manner for the same reasons. My devotion to Divine Mother Isis is what called me to her Temple. I pledged my Spirit in service to Her at my 0=0 initiation, and it was a pledge for life. With every day from that first day, I have lived my perception of the Great Work through continuing my studies and participating in Temple and community projects with a joyful heart ... and the rewards continue to nourish my soul.

By way of explaining the seeds of my spirituality and my reasons for remaining at Isis Temple (apart from my Hawaiian way), I offer this excerpt from The Way Of The Disciple, by Clara M. Codd (1963), at pp. 195-197, to wit:

"There is only one to whom the aspirant must be entirely faithful, whose leading he must follow unconditionally ad wholeheartedly -- if he can but hear it -- and that is the Voice of his interior Divinity, the doorway to That which The Voice Of The Silence calls alaya, the Master-Soul, the universal Soul.

But to be able to hear it, and not to mistake the voice of his own passions, desires and wish-fulfilments for the Divine mandate, that is the point. If once the "voice" speaks and we have "heard," we must be utterly faithful or it will not speak again. But, it may be asked, should not the aspirant obey the Master?  Very rarely does an Adept give a direct order. "Learn," wrote the Master K.H. to Mr. Sinnett, "to be loyal to the idea, rather than to my poor self."  ("The Mahatma
Letters to A.P. Sinnett," transcribed by A.T. Barker [The Theosophical Press, 1923], at 323-4.)

The power to "hear" really means the development of the intuitional spiritual perception which again means the awakening to consciousness of the divine nature in man.

To the man who is wholly in earnest and is willing to give his life to the quest, no compromise is possible. It is all or nothing. This is the meaning of the Sixth Beatitude of the Christian "Noble Eightfold Path." "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." To be pure in heart is to be absolutely wholehearted, dedicated to the great quest with every fibre of one's being, and consciously, or unconsciously, turning in that direction at every moment of time. We "seek" with the intelligence and the pure heart that one day we may rise into the world beyond the intelligence.

The search is within, the way is long, but faithfully adhered to, it will carry a soul through many lives and deaths. That divine consciousness is called by Light on the Path the Song of Life, and the aspirant is told to listen to that Song. We do not listen with our physical ears, but with the delicate, slowly awakening responses in our souls. We are told to look ever deeper and deeper into ourselves, and to look intelligently into the hearts of men, for intelligence is impartial and all things are to be understood. But not until the bonds of the personality, all its likings and dislikings, all its prejudices and frustrations are loosened, and the consciousness has learned to identify itself with the Eternal One within and can thus stand apart from the personality, will understanding, and power to guide it, come.

So the first step is to seek, and to seek with the fresh, natural, uncluttered, unselfish mind. To seek is always to find. No man can take a step towards the divinity within himself, without that Diviner Self taking steps towards him. By selfless love and adoration is he found, never by personal grasping of the desire for personal stature. No man can add one cubit unto his stature. Only the Grace of God can do that, the Grace of God which is the true source of Wisdom, insight, perfect  action. This is the explanation of the words of St. John: "he cannot sin, because he is born of God." (I John 3:9)

The disciple upon the path strives to understand all life, its obscure meanings and its natural path of development. Many religious communities practice self-examination. That is well if the spirit of self-absorption, little-self absorption, is not brought about. Our minds and hearts and bodies are but the developing instruments of our true self, to be held as a subject of grave experience and experiment. But, they are not truly us, though we have for so long completely identified ourselves with them. Now we must loosen these bounds. It is all life that we seek and not our little bit."

* * * * *

For those who genuinely seek to learn that they may serve the Brotherhood of Man, there are already so many questions you want answered through your search for the Truth through Knowledge ... all I'm asking you to consider is this ray of insight -- which focuses on the last pillar of Light, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE -- into the meaning of answering The Call.

'Amama 'ua noa ...
Let it fly!
