‘Aia i ka ‘olelo no ke ‘ola … ‘aia i ka ‘olelo no ka make
Words are either life-nurturing or death-dealing.
 
You speak while you exhale, which is immediately followed by taking a breath.  Therefore, if you don’t want to eat, that is, take into yourself negative thoughts/words, don’t utter them!

Ha’awina ‘Ekolu – Lesson Three
 
The Aloha Spirit is unconditional caring.  Compassion.  Hospitality.  It is our thoughts, empowered by a coherent (Aloha) Heart, that are thousands of times more powerful than thoughts energized by an incoherent heart.  It’s not about marching in the streets, writing lots of books, or making lots of money to influence the world.
 
Energize your thoughts with a coherent Heart and your perceptions brighten with Light.

Temper your intellect with compassion, develop your Mind from your Heart and you change your world and everything around you for the better.

Ha’awina ‘Eha – Lesson Four
 
Living Aloha means we always consider the other person and try to put ourselves in their shoes and understand life from their perspective, whether things go our way, or not.  This core idea of interpersonal communication defines the Hawaiian concept of LOKAHI (unity), where Lokahi is vital in the daily formula of harmonious community living … that ideal state called PONO.  We teach the Hawaiian way of maintaining harmony through coherent daily living.  Thus, Ho’oponopono is the ancient ritual essential to healing unbalanced relations with Aloha Spirit — through Acceptance, we achieve Unity as One.
