Хоопонопоно/ Hoʻoponopono - ancient practice of reconciliation and forgiveness

Есть у гавайцев такая штука с причудливым названием: хоопонопоно. Хо-о-поно-поно.
Там целая философия о том, что мир внутри нас и мир снаружи связаны и можно влиять на внешний мир, перенастраивая и гармонизируя тот, что внутри. Не буду подробнее, этого достаточно.

Основная практика хоонопонопоно до наивности проста. Нужно, думая о человеке, с которым связана проблема, конфликт, который сильно расстроил, разочаровал, произносить вслух, можно тихонечко, или напевать определенную последовательность фраз, она легкая:
Мне жаль... Я так люблю тебя... Прости... Благодарю тебя...

Не надо при этом стараться что-то особенное чувствовать, придумывать причины, чтобы простить или вспоминать поводы, за что благодарить, можно вообще о другом думать, посуду мыть или еще что-то делать, главное — просто повторять. Какое-то время, как пойдет.
Гавайцы уверяют, что действует сказочно.

Хотите попробовать? Подумайте о ком-то из знакомых или близких, с кем разругались, рассорились, разорвали отношения. И начинайте промеж делом:
Мне жаль... Я так люблю тебя... Прости... Благодарю тебя...

“If we can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts, emotions, words, deeds and actions and that our present lives and choices are colored or shaded by this memory bank of the past, then we begin to see how a process of correcting or setting aright can change our lives, our families and our society.”

Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono) is an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. Similar forgiveness practices were performed on islands throughout the South Pacific, including Samoa, Tahiti and New Zealand.

In many Polynesian cultures, it is believed that a person's errors (called hara or hala) caused illness.
Among the islands of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, people believe that illness usually is caused by sexual misconduct or anger. "If you are angry for two or three days, sickness will come," said one local man. (см. также) The therapy that counters this sickness is confession. The patient, or a family member, may confess. If no one confesses an error, the patient may die. The Vanuatu people believe that secrecy is what gives power to the illness. When the error is confessed, it no longer has power over the person.

"Hoʻoponopono" is defined in the Hawaiian Dictionary as "mental cleansing: family conferences in which relationships were set right through prayer, discussion, confession, repentance, and mutual restitution and forgiveness." Literally, hoʻo is a particle used to make an actualizing verb from the following noun, as would "to" before a noun in English. Here, it creates a verb from the noun pono, which is defined as
...goodness, uprightness, morality, moral qualities, correct or proper procedure, excellence, well-being, prosperity, welfare, benefit, true condition or nature, duty; moral, fitting, proper, righteous, right, upright, just, virtuous, fair, beneficial, successful, in perfect order, accurate, correct, eased, relieved; should, ought, must, necessary.
Ponopono is defined as "to put to rights; to put in order or shape, correct, revise, adjust, amend, regulate, arrange, rectify, tidy up, make orderly or neat".

Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona (1913 – 1992) was recognized as a kahuna lapaʻau (healer) in Hawaiʻi and taught her updated version of hoʻoponopono throughout the United States, Asia and Europe.

In 1976 Morrnah Simeona adapted the traditional hoʻoponopono of family mutual forgiveness to the social realities of the modern day. For this she extended it both to a general problem solving process outside the family and to a psycho-spiritual self-help rather than group process.

After Simeona's passing in 1992, her former student and administrator Ihaleakala Hew Len, co-authored a book with Joe Vitale called Zero Limits referring to Simeona's hoʻoponopono teachings. Len makes no claim to be a kahuna.

In contrast to Simeona's teachings, the book brings the new idea that the main objective of hoʻoponopono is getting to "the state of Zero, where we would have zero limits. No memories. No identity." To reach this state, which Len called 'Self-I-Dentity', one has to repeat constantly, according to Joe Vitale's interpretation, the mantra, "I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you."
...To change our reality, we would have to change ourselves. Total Responsibility, according to Hew Len, advocates that everything exists as a projection from inside the human being. As such, it is similar to the philosophy of solipsism, but differs in that it does not deny the reality of the consciousness of others. Instead, it views all consciousness as part of the whole, so using parts of the idea of holism: any error that a person clears in their own consciousness should be cleared for everyone.
