Greetings return to you my lords, in the love and in the light of the ancestors, The Source of Life.
Greetings from the Spiritual Warriors, keepers of the flame, we greet you twice.
Greetings from the Chiefs and Elders of The Mound of The Whale, keepers of the receptacles of knowledge, the fruits of beauty, we greet you thrice.
We sing praises and blessings to the ancestors of Turtle Island who have passed this way a thousand generations ago and have become the earth itself. All that remain are the names that point the way to legends.
It was a way of life that had heart and communion of spirit. Songs that tell of heroic moments that have moved their people to find values true to their inner vision.
Their dance is one that is the beat of the earth itself. Their names are of nature. Their closeness to the land is deliberate.
Their wealth is determined by the integrity of their heart and the freedom of their soul.
They are not poor, they are the bounty of this land, they are the earth itself.
We sing praises and blessings to the ancestral house of Turtle Island, for the vision it seek is not for the eyes, it is for the inner spirit to receive this vision and speak of it to the ancestral house, their heart.
The ancestors ride past on memories that only the clouds can recall.
Know your place within this mystery and a true way to walk by opening your heart to the sighing of the wind that the grandfather’s voice that speak the truth that does not die; open to the earth and ready to fulfill a destiny.
We sing praises and blessings to Mother Earth who spins the web of creation, the eternal principle of truth; who weave the tapestry of life; awareness is her substance, the seeds of life.
We are the prayer spoken individually as consciousness. We create our beliefs and redefine their edges moment by moment and call this cascade of momentum, our life.
To attempt to define the unfathomable mystery that gives birth to the miracle of our being creates a stagnant atmosphere of conflicting philosophies that we have named religion.
So the dilemma arises that has bewildered all faiths, how to evolve in creative expression, seeking to grow past fear and into a heart sharing of meaningful activity while enclosed in a circle of spiritual speculation that speaks of inner truths yet bogs the soul in thought and ritual.
Life itself is the prayer, the prayer is not eternal or for show.
Spirit is the inner essence, the eternal principle that speaks of our life as its truths, but worship of it misses the point.
We are our God, The Creator living in the creation getting to know the Creator better, praying to ourself is useless, but living in light of our truth and applying it into a moment by moment joy of sharing expressive mastery is the enlightenment of our soul.
Self realization is mastery, not philosophy- it is joy, not effort- it is truth, not blind participation.
Our prayer is our joy, and each of us sings of the same truth.
the cordage, is symbolic of the lives we have completed and the result of the choices we have made throughout our many incarnations.
The occasional knots in the cordage are brought about at this tme, by the “Law of Attraction,” when life choices were taken away either by or from the weaver.
Where the braiding is taking place is the current
in our life. The strands are of different lengths, substances and textures, and some tend to be more central to the cordage than others, but at each and every choice, the strands are braided in and out, depending on the ramifications of the choices made.
Each choice is made by the weaver, and each choice brings new form to bear on the cordage. All the strands are valid and some are likelier than others- until the choice is made. The tangling of the cordage strands is caused by choice.
Now: Our own nature, of course, is of the water; in that we as spiritual warriors, are easily impressed and moved.
This is the very fiber of the cordage and the nature of our physical journey and vigil in this three dimensional experience: To not only be move, but to instruct ourselves to the preferred manner of our movement in mind, body, and spirit; for we are the best teachers we will ever find.
Therefore, as each person enters the energy web of Papa hanau moku, Mother Earth, each experiences two major influxes, that of of the conception, which has to do with the physical manifestation of the incarnation, and that of the moment we call birth, when the divine breath, the Ha, is drawn into the body.
Thus those who know the stars and their configurations and influences, such as a navigator of the ancestral canoe, are able to see a rather broadly drawn map of the places through which a spiritual warrior, a bearer of light, has travelled, is travelling, or may be expected to travel, be it upon the physical, the mental, or the spiritual level, through the watery world of spirit, Hawai’i; our direct link, braided with the cordage of love. Aloha.
It is said that we are one link, one connection, in a millenium long cordage of spiritual warriors, activating the wisdom of persuasion and the mastery of the highest evolutionary development, the Chief, related to and the continuation of cognizant nature.
We change what we can and accept what we cannot change for those who can, the descendants of the next seven generations.
We ask that you remain seated until the awa service is completed. When your name is called, we ask that you, the recipient, clap your hands once for the awa servers recognition of the recipient. You may speak over your cup of awa. Upon the return of the awa cup to the server, a command of “Pa’i ka lima” will be given; everyone will applaud in unison “three times.”
Makaukau? Inu awa?
We the spiritual warriors with the bearers of light, leave you in the love and in the light of the ancestors, The Source of Life; rejoicing in the power and the peace braided with the cordage of love. Aloha.

Greetings return to you, Dr. colorado, in the love and in the light of the ancestors, The Source of Life.
The echo of the ancestors have resounded into these set of words:
The new world will be built upon the ruins of the old. The new structure will rise. Men of goodwill everywhere, under the guidance of WISN, will organize themselves into battalions of life, and their first major task must be the development of right human relations, through the education of the masses. This means the paralleling development of an enlightened public opinion, which is speaking esoterically right response to the sound which conveys the will of the CREATOR to the ears of the attentive. Then humanity will indeed move outward from the desert, leave the seas behind, and know that CREATOR is FIRE.
Kekaula, the SEER, is about that part of us that is ADEPT, knowing the world and how to work with forces in it. As such, ke kaula is a TRANSFORMER, able to bring about change, sometime surprisingly. Kekaula knows how to use his/her own ends and can be seen as a MANINPULATOR. In all, kekaula performs feats that few others can, and almost anyone would regard him/her as INGENIOUS.
Kekaula is composed primarily of the energy of PATIENCE and IMPULSE, and it dwells in the ancestral house of the FIRST CAUSE. Therefore, expressing “I AM” through the energies of IMAGINING and EXPERIENCING; and expression of the sea of dreams.
In this place, one experiences the beginning and ending of things- the spark, the idea. It is the NORTH, the unknowable, the MYSTERY. It is where all things come from, the unlimited potential of THE DREAMER. We swirl in all that can be, before and after it is real.
The expressions of the crossroads are Kekaula and keihoiho kukui (candle)
The keys to realization are in the hoailona of Ke komo kula (ring) and kaapu (the cup). The gateway to heaven is the lele (tower), where REFLECTION provides access and FOCUSING ATTENTION makes a way out.
Now: Kalua (hole, pit) is about being receptive. The approach is one of Openness to all that is around you, receptive life, ALLOWING PERCEPTION OF OTHER REALITIES beyond the everyday and normal.
These approaches in combination lead to seeing the simultaneity of life, the intermingling of cause and effect, the wholeness of the moment and the universe at large. Kalua symbolizes the gateways of “I FEEL” and “I PROJECT”. It is also the gate to and from the SEA OF MAGIC.
Here the mystery comes forth, just beneath the fabric of LIFE, a buoyant undercoat woven by the “FEELER”. Through the energy of INTERNALIZING, that which is latent congeals. We are not powerless and simply placed on earth; we feel the wonder within.
The crossroad of expressions are “MAHEALANI MOON” an “KEANIANI” (glass).
The keys to realization are in the MO’O and KEKAULA HAO (Chain). We are as strong as the weakest link.
The gate of the “HOLE” provide access through PERCEPTION OF OTHER REALITIES and exit through OPENNESS.
Now: No Ka Pua Loke La Kealoha- the ROSE, the flower of aloha, dwells in the ancestral house of the MATRIX and in the realization of “I WANT”. It represent the dilemma between what I want, how I want it and the way things just are. The challenge of the warriors is to realize the beauty of what is, and to be in step with the process of becoming.
Ka Pua Loke, the flower rose, is the question about perfection, about my inner sense of how things are supposed to be. When I a idealizing, I am in a fantasy world of letter- perfection- according to me-. I can be a little more realistic.
Now, I am only PERFECTING. You could be better. Allow me to show you what is wrong. The trouble is inside me, I am not perfect. So, everything that is not perfect in me, I end up seeing as imperfection in the world, and in you.
I can choose to see all this another way. I can see the whole thing as UN-FOLDING, never quite perfect but always getting better. I can even see you in this new light. After all, you are dealing with your sense of perfection too.
Better yet, I can let go of the idea of my being perfect and relax into EXPRESSING who I am and how I like things to be. Just being can be its own perfection, even if it is beyond me. This way you get to be right too; within the sea of time and innocence.
In this sea, of time, we exist and experience. Duration leads to sequence, and we separate then from now, this from that, and you from me. Everybody wants to do something; we stir.
Here shines IMPULSE, “THE DOER.” He fills this place with the desire to experience. The crossroad of expressions are the PA KUKUI (WANDERER) and KE IPOAHI (THE LOVER). The keys to REALIZATIONS are in the APU (CUP) and KA PUA LOKE. The way in and out is through the GATE of the MIKILIMA (GLOVE) where PROJECTING IDENTITIES gains access and ACCEPTING ASSISTANCE creates an exit.
In this place, INNOCENCE, we still hear the voice of “THE SPEAKER”, that which sent us forth and which beckons us onward. Under the star of REACHING, we GROW and pursue living.
The crossroad of EXPRESSIONS are KE KEIKI (THE CHILD) and KE KUMU LA’AU (THE TREE). The keys of realization are through KA PUA LOKE (THE ROSE) and PAUKA (POWDER). Access and exit are through the gate of WAIPA’a (ICE), where clarity gets one in and CHANGEABILITY lets one out. Here we recall our inner guidance. The sea of Innocence is shared between the ancestral houses of “THE MATRIX” and “THE MOTION.”
Now: KOLOA, the DUCK, describes the part of ourselves that is CONVENTIONAL, going along with the way things are. To do so is to go with the grain, not against it, and so KOLOA symbolizes a kind of NATURALNESS, being in step.
It shows a SENSE OF HUMOR, that life does not have to be all seriousness. this same part of us can show SELF DOUBTS, a nagging about one’s own originality. It can also be SELF-EFFACING, doing things more for the sake of the team than for itself.
KOLOA is composed principally of the energy of LAUGH and INWARDNESS, and it dwells in the ancestral house of IMAIKALANI, the blind ali’i of Ka’u, THE SPIRIT INCARNATE. Therefore, KOLOA is expressing “I PROJECT” through the mana of EXTERNALIZING and INTERNALIZING; and expression of the sea of laughing hats.
In this sea are all lifes actors, each with permission to act out his or her role. “THE PLAYER”eggs us on. He encourages us to enjoy being on stage with his energy of EXTERNALIZING. We can be anything we choose, at least for a moment.
The crossroad of expressions are the LUA’APANA (JESTER) and KOLOA (DUCK). The keys of realization are through KE KAULA HAO (THE CHAIN) and the KIHEI (ROBE). Entry and exit are through the gateway of the IHE (SPEAR), where SELF EXPRESSION makes a way out. THE SEA OF LAUGHING HATS are shared with the ancestral houses, THE SPIRIT INCARNATE and THE ANCESTRAL GRAND PLAN.
The echo of the ancestors is complete, therefore, I leave you, Dr. Colorado, in the love and in the light of the ancestors, The Source of Life; rejoicing in the power and the peace braided with the cords of patience, revealing the power of the universe, your aloha.
Sincerely in service,
HONO ELE MAKUA
