Synopsis: The Hawaiian Way to Put Things Back into Balance! A uniquely Hawaiian concept, ho'o (to do or make) plus pono (righteous, balanced, forgiven, alligned, proper) was once how every Hawaiian strived to live. It reflects our true spiritual essence, living in harmony with the community and 'ohana (family), and guided and protected by our kupuna (elders) and 'aumakua (ancestors; guardian angels). Lee's newest book shares stories sure to give you chills, as you learn about the wisdom and mana (power) of pre-contact Hawai'i.

From the Back Cover: If it is good, if it is in balance, if it is right, if it helps, if it is righteous, if it corrects, if it is responsible, if it is caring, if it is humble, if it is peaceful, if it honors, it is pono. Kauikeaouli Kamehameha III gave the Hawaiian Kingdom a motto in 1843. We still have it, but now it stands on our state seal. In 1843 what pono meant needed no explanation. It was all that was good. "Ua mau ke ea o ka `aina i ka pono" it says in Hawaiian, which is translated as, "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness" or all that is pono. It is my belief that "righteousness" is used as an all-encompassing word to cover the many things pono means. If you are righteous, you are good, helpful, caring, humble and in balance. From the first kanaka maoli to reach Hawai`i's shores, until the time the country was taken over by the defacto government, being pono was what every citizen was striving to be. The fact that it now has to be explained shows that it has largely been forgotten. The kanaka maoli (indigenous people) didn't speak of right or wrong, but whether or not it was pono. When they fell away from being pono--if they were tempted to do wrong or to bring sadness or sorrow to another, or if they were greedy, acted foolishly, or were lazy and didn't do their share of the work--the elders would remind them that they were becoming pono`ole (not being pono). This was usually all that was needed for a person to get back on track. If, however, problems continued, there would be a call for ho`oponopono, a situation where the entire family came together and discussed the problem. In a ho`oponopono meeting, everyone did their best to understand why the person willfully did what he or she was doing. They listened to any argument and were led by the elders in order to see and understand all points of view. Then they tried to find a solution. - from Chapter 6

Life is a tapestry; threads of many kinds and colors are interwoven back and forth in wonderful designs. We weave as we live, and what comes out is what we are. Each act in our life is a thread that we have woven into our tapestry. The decisions we make define the threads in our tapestry. Are we keeping ourselves pono? When we find we are not, do we correct it? Do we set boundaries on how much we will allow attachments and distractions to come into our lives? Is our `ohana there, and in their proper place? If we can learn to do this, we can weave a beautiful tapestry. The Spirit of Aloha is the sum total of all things pono in Hawai`i nei. It must not be allowed to die. The children of this land must be nurtured, loved, taught to be pono, and helped to grow in mana. They must be treated with aloha and dignity, and taught in the ways of old. It doesn't matter where their parents were born. If they are here, then they are ours. They are Hawaiian. Perhaps not in blood quantum, but by birth they are children of this land. The Aloha Spirit can be hard to find these days. It is up to each of us to help bring it back into focus... - from Chapter 10
