In Hawaiian Ho’o means “cause” and pono pono means “perfection”. Ho’oponopono means to return to perfection. To make right.
According to Dr. Hew Len, we come into this world in perfect unity and once we are born separation or duality perception begins. It is this duality and the memories from the beginning of time until the present that cause “problems”.
Ho’opononpono, specifically, Self Identity Through Ho’oponopono is a way to make right, or return to perfection, that which our erroneous beliefs have tarnished.
You can not know the cause of problems, only that the problem is there only because of the data in you. There is nothing outside you causing your suffering.
You can not know this intellectually. You must trust and practice. Your life is a prayer. Every moment of every day you are lifting up prayers to Source. If you want your life experience to be different than it is, you must pray intentionally.
