Different from many other practices, Ho'oponopono encourages seeking such answers from within. However, we won't hear them if we're lost in our "ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making us happy."
It can be so easy to grind along in our conflicts, disagreements, opinions, judgments, and resentments.
But Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len has often said that our only reason for being here [on earth] is "to clean" -- to make things right between ourselves, others throughout history, all plants and creatures, and the planet itself.
"Our only purpose for existence is to clean to be memory free, no more, no less." ~Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len
For a long time this confused me, because I wondered if serving others as a doctor was somehow not cleaning. Might my minstrations be interfering with Divine purpose, rather than moving along with it? Were we to "just" sit and clean, doing nothing else day in and day out?
After discussing and meditating upon this more, I realized that each of us simply cleans while being fully present in our life situations. Simple enough, but when stuck in my intellectual web I didn't "get" it.
Perhaps there is a sort of feedback loop with the cleaning. If we clean, we can be [at least temporarily] memory-free enough to receive Divine Inspiration, and be guided to "do" what we came here to do. While "doing" that, cleaning opportunities arise . . . more memories to release.
I can do this as a housecleaner, gardener, writer, physician, cook, real estate agent, or millions of other possible roles.
In fact, when we're at zero, we just "do" as we're guided, without question or hesitation. If we're questioning, we're not clear, as Dr. Hew Len has also said.
This last weekend, I attended the Zero Limits 3 seminar as an absentee. My name had been on the cleaning list for about 6 weeks before this -- and much came up for review inside me. I don't know why, but I feel easier about my own purpose after all this -- not so lost in my own petty grievances.
Thank heavens I don't need to be as evolved as the Dalai Lama to serve a purpose in the world, and my cleaning can carry on through simply being what I am. As things do evolve, though, what I am "doing" could change.
This happened for Dr. Hew Len at Hawaii State Hospital. After several years there, his teacher Morrnah Simeona simply told him he was "done". His next assignment seemed to be teaching Ho'oponopono full-time with the Foundation.
From Dr. Hew Len:
"When you are your SELF first, your IDENTITY first, as the I, the Original Source, created you in its exact likeness, everything PERFECT, WHOLE and COMPLETE is automatically added continuously! This is called Identity Plus.
The purpose of existence is to always be your SELF first, last and always. This is accomplished through cleansing. It is through your Identity, free of toxic energies in the way of thoughts, words, deeds and actions, that the I, the Original Source, will give you Plus automatically.
You cannot be denied anything that is perfect, whole, complete and right for you when your are your SELF first.
Being your SELF first you automatically experience perfection in the way of Divine Thoughts, Words, Deeds and Actions. Allowing your toxic thoughts to be first, you automatically experience imperfection in the way of disease, confusion, resentment, depression, judgment and poverty.
What is Plus? DIVINE PEACE, DIVINE CLARITY, and DIVINE WEALTH beyond all intellectual understanding. And, Plus is automatic when you are your SELF first, last and always.
So, to be our SELVES first, last and always is our singular, our only purpose for being."
