Values of Aloha
The following Aloha Values helps us to understand Aloha with greater depth, so we can practice Aloha more where it matters most, in our homes.
Akahai is translated as kindness and should be expressed with tenderness. Aloha starts with tenderness, forgiveness, and acceptance for yourself and others. Whether you are experiencing good times or challenges, approach your interactions with akahai for yourself and others and see how it builds aloha around you.
Lōkahi, often translated as unity and expressed with a feeling of harmony, helps us understand that all of us are part of a life force that is unbroken, even when some of us feel separated from the group. With lōkahi, we support and accept each other in acknowledgement of this unbrokenness and work together in love.
ʻOluʻolu, often translated as agreeable and expressed with feelings of pleasantness, is intended to remind us not to be argumentative or pessimistic. 'Olu'olu reminds us that even if we differ, we can express differences in encouraging and kind ways.
Haʻahaʻa translated as humility and expressed with a feeling of modesty, asks us to empty ourselves of judgment for others. Ha'aha'a means to be open to learning, growing and receiving new information. Rooted in willingness to accept new things, haʻahaʻa helps us to remember that we can grow and so can others around us.
Ahonui, translated as patience, should be applied with perseverance. Ahonui with perseverance means we are waiting for the right time to speak, act, or think. Children and families thrive when ahonui is present for it allows everyone a chance to grow, learn and fail in a loving and caring environment.
