The Hula is, as is all dance,
rooted in rituals which originally began as spiritual, religious
and/or social ceremonial activities. In modern times, perhaps
mostly in Western circles, dancing has had a recreational avenue
in the last 1000 years with folk dancing, and even formal but
social community gatherings where people would entertain, meet
others and share in social and romantic circumstances. We, in
the Western world, have degenerated in our thinking based on
our ego to believe that our civilization has continued to move
upward rather than downward so we conclude that anything from
the past is primitive and simple.
But this is not necessarily so. As one begins a spiritual path
they may soon find that what was once perceived as primitive
or simple was actually very esoteric and on a much Higher level
as it pertains to "civilization." Technology is not
the standard by which we should measure the accomplishments of
our world. For technology comes and goes and has more to do with
man's laziness than his spiritual and gnostic abilities.
Most of our tools which come from our "technology"
reflect what we call making life easier but also based on an
incredible lack of spiritual understanding. If we could move
from one place to another without the need of current transportation
think of the changes we would have in our lifestyle. Imagine
life without fossil based fuel or cars, boats, airplanes, etc.
This permeates much of what we call our "civilization."
It also is much of what creates what we think is a need for war
and violence upon other nations as we maintain our current lifestyle.
Frankly, this is all absurd. But back to the esoteric side of
Man and his rituals and ceremonies.
Kahuna Magic, as it is often called, and
the Hula are both a part of the ritual of Hawaiian Esoteric Life.
Much of it was seen as primitive and in many ways it too became
primitive over the ages but it was based originally on the esoteric
knowledge of a world wide community of understanding which was
on a much Higher Plane than the one in which we exist today.
It is not simply a matter of knowing about something but rather
having it be alive within one's Beingness and operating within
them as a System of Thought.
What you will enter into here on this mystical
journey of the Hula and the magic of the Kahuna is only a realm
of magic if you believe in the supernatural as a Universe beyond
your own existence. Real magic is actually nothing more than
the realization of Truth. You see, the supernatural realm is
one which is ALWAYS in operation. The changes which occur are
those in consciousness whereby we block out the flow of Reality
and we alter our world in such a way as to create discord, chaos,
disease, violence, pain, suffering, poverty, division, isolation,
fear and so on. These are changes from the Real world of Spirit
which is ongoing Harmony, Order, Health, Peace, Pleasure, Wholeness,
Abundance, Oneness, Unity, Security, Confidence on through infinity.
We think of magic as the power to change things but I would say
haven't we changed things enough. Now we must realize that all
is Consciousness and what we must change is Consciousness alone.
In changing our perception we alter our world.... this is MAGIC.
