10. The Aloha Spirit

“Aloha” is more than a word of greeting or farewell or a salutation. “Aloha” means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return. “Aloha” means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen and to know the unknowable. “Aloha” is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective existence.

Akahai, [ah kah hai’], meaning kindness, to be expressed with tenderness;

Lōkahi, [LOH’ kah hee], meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;

`Olu`olu, [oh’ loo oh’ loo], meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;

Ha`aha`a, [hah’ ah hah’ ah], meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty;

Ahonui, [ah hoh nui’], meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance.

The warmth, kindness and sincerity you will experience in Hawaii is one of the reasons people return to Hawaii year after year. The thing I love most about the Spirit of Aloha is our ability to pass it on even when we are not in Hawaii!
