Good Book To Get Started...
on March 26, 2012
I have few matters with this book which kind of its contradict itself. On page 155 on the book, Katz asked and answered "Can I Pray Directly To God?" / "The intellect can not communicate directly with God."
Maybe not the intellect itself but on subconscious level we still can so that's why Morrnah has her own Hooponopono PRAYER. She PRAYED too to let God's divine love in to clean and erase memories. So yes we CAN actually pray directly yo God but there are also ways to pray with keeping ego's wants outside which explained by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and Dr. Joseph Murphy.
Another couple of questions on pages 156 and 157 is "What about setting goals, affirmations and visualizations"
Mabel Katz said NO to those because of her training she got from Ihaleakala. Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len perhaps not doing affirmations and setting goals or practicing visualizations but because the divine inspiration he got for HIMSELF. While doing Hooponopono he received the inspiration of doing nothing but cleaning, because that's his life goal.
But everyone of us is different. When I do the cleaning I usually get different inspirations... Like setting a goal, doing a certain project, taking a certain action, doing visualizations and affirmations / praying. Because Divine Love inspires me in a certain way... Because everyone walking on a different path.
I'm personally doing Hooponopono to clean and erase erroneous memories / repeating subconscious programs and ALSO letting go the attachments between I am and my goals and expectations. Letting Go & Letting God creates miracles and its working for me that way.
So every person who is into Hooponopono interpreting it on their own way. As you all well should do...
Previous Review with the title: it works...
This is the best single book ever written about the most powerful thing I've ever seen in my whole life, called Ho'ponopono. I'm writing this sincerely as a Turkish person who lives in Turkey - and surrounded by negativity, lack, bigotry, dogma, ignorance and despair. And I'm not working on Self Development industry, I'm a passionate 3D artist, designer & photographer.
First of all I'd like to inform you that this is not about winning your famous "$1.000.000". After The Secret that "$1.000.000" thing become a common goal to everyone who doesn't even have a definite chief aim in life. Like Think & Grow Rich Philosophy, Self Identity through Ho'ponopono is not about the money; it has never been. It is the growth, learn, expand, reach to the happiness, health and wealth and peace of mind. Money is simply a by-product of growing and raising our awareness.
All I can say is The Easiest Way is truly the best book about the method. It's clear, easy to read and understand especially someone like me who English is not the native language. I'd like to tell you how powerful it is right now; because a couple minutes ago I was in a tasteless major argument with couple of family members. I realized that I wasn't cleaning, opened the book and found the sentence on the page 111 and started to repeat it mentally and in English! Not even in my native language! And in just MINUTES my family members cooled down and made peace. It is that powerful!
I can not write enough here to how important that ancient Hawaiian teaching is! Should be taught on the schools, should be part everyone's life. It has the power to transmute today's world into HEAVEN.
Believe me, I have MANY self help / self development books. From less known to superstar life coaches - famous giant NLP dudes to positive-love-butterfly ladies. But I put their books away for a while and keeping this little book on my desk and reading it frequently.
