- Who am I?
- What is a problem?
- Where is the problem?
- How can the problem be solved?
- What is the purpose of existence?
As Dr. Hew Len is fond of asking, "Have you noticed that when there is a problem, you are always there?" Ho'oponopono posits that we are 100% responsible for all that appears in our lives. The only way to deal with this is to acknowledge it, and ask Divinity for help.
Morrnah once said:
"The main purpose of Ho'oponopono is to discover the Divinity within oneself. The Ho'oponopono is a profound gift which allows one to develop a working relationship with the Divinity within, and learn to ask that in each moment, our errors in thought, word, deed, or action be cleansed. The process is essentially about freedom, complete freedom from the past."
Ho'oponopono is not a system which involves finding yet another guru to follow or worship, or endless "levels" of instruction to complete. It is, however, a process which requires practice, patience, and resolve as we learn to incorporate new attitudes towards ourselves and others.
When our basic response to anything or anyone is "I love you" rather than the abundance of other possibilities, it does change our outlook!
To me this attitude is mirrored also in the words of the Dalai Lama: "There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness."
New "live" Ho'oponopono seminars are being offered all over the country and world -- you can find your closest option by clicking here. Alternatively, Mabel Katz offers her related "Zero Frequency" teleseminars and also Ho'oponopono question and answer sessions.
Ho'oponopono is an inner practice, but connecting with others who are also developing in this way sure helps me keep up with it. I wish I had known Morrnah, but when she was living I probably would not have been prepared to listen. So I am grateful to know Dr. Hew Len, Mabel Katz, Kamaile, and so many others practicing Ho'oponopono. All in its own good time, no doubt.
Peace begins with me,
