Make Your Kuleana Pono

Make Your Kuleana Pono

Recently I was listening to music and the song “What A Wonderful World” by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole was played.  It caught my attention as I was introduced to the Hawaiian culture when I was blessed to live on the Big Island for two years.  I felt like I was connected to a culture from a past life and it touched my heart and soul.  IZ talks during the song and says  “Make your kuleana pono.” A very powerful and meaningful statement.  In general kuleana translates to responsibility, accountability and spirituality.  Pono translates to right living of your life with balance, harmony and integrity.  I believe IZ was implying to get your life in order, make it good and act with righteous responsibility to do what’s right.  

I think it’s important for all of us to go within and when we choose to live with integrity and responsibility that energy will go out into the world.  Do you think you can make your kuleana pono?

AFFIRMATION: I take a deep breath and breathe in the energy of making my kuleana pono. I embrace the energy of putting this action out into the world.
