"What the world needs now is love, sweet love-it's the only thing that there's just too little of." ~Jackie DeShannon
The Hawaiian culture has a concept that seems to go beyond love-it's called the 'Aloha Spirit'. I can't do it justice to explain it properly, but this does:
"The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. However, it also refers to a powerful way to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and to achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.
In the Hawaiian language, aloha stands for much more than just "hello" or "goodbye" or "love." Its deeper meaning is "the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo)."
As you share this energy you become attuned to the Universal Power that the Hawaiians call mana. And the loving use of this incredible Power is the secret for attaining true health, happiness, prosperity and success (read the rest of it here).
We can chose to sit here in despair, helplessness, fear, anger, shock, disbelief, hate, etc. over events that have occurred over the past few months OR we can chose to become beacons of light-of positive energy in these troubled times. I think our world could use a lot of that right now. Don't you?
