From the Desk of Linda Tellington-Jones

A week after Valentine’s Day, Roland and I attended services at the Aloha Center for Spiritual Living, a Science of Mind Church. Aunty Mahealani Henry led the service, saying that we do not have to wait until 2012 for the cosmic shift that has been predicted for decades. We are already experiencing the shift of consciousness. And the biggest lessons we have to focus on are forgiveness and compassion.”

One of the Hawaiian concepts of Pono Pono that Aunty teaches is striving for excellence in living and eliminating drama in our lives. Until now she has taught that whenever we are faced with a traumatic event we could acknowledge it for 3 minutes, really address the drama for 3 minutes, and then let it go. Now she teaches that we should give any drama 3 seconds! And then go back to a state of excellence or deep appreciation, gratitude and thanksgiving. That gives me lots of food for thought and a striving to keep my heart open and practice that state of gratitude that brings happiness.

    What a beautiful tribute to Aunty Mahealani. I’m a writer of a feature article about her for Ke Ola Magazine (www.keola.com) May I have your permission to use the photo above (with credit of course) and quote you in my profile of her?
