Hawaiian words have deep meaning which this description well shares.  We hope you enjoy learning more about it and seeing how it applies in your life and brightens your day.  Please share this post with your family and friends so that they may enjoy it as well.

"Aloha Spirit" within each person. It brings each person to the self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others. In the contemplation and presence of the life force, "Aloha", the following unuhi laulā loa may be used:

           "Akahai", meaning kindness to be expressed with tenderness;
           "Lōkahi", meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;
           "ʻOluʻolu" meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;
           "Haʻahaʻa", meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty;
           "Ahonui", meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance.

These traits of character express the charm, warmth and sincerity of Hawaii's people. It was the working philosophy of native Hawaiians and was presented as a gift to the people of Hawaiʻi. ''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" is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective existence. ''Aloha'' means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen and to know the unknowable.
