Happy Thanksgiving - Hau'oli La Ho'omaika'i - 2022

Thankful for you - Mahalo iā ʻoe

 

To understand the true meaning of the Hawaiian word for thanks, "Mahalo" it is important to understand the roots of the word and the powerful message imbedded within. 

 

MA- in this case means “within”
HA- refers to the “breath of life” or “Divine breath of life”
ALO- means “in the presence of”
 

The complete translation including the hidden meaning reads. “Thankful to be in the presence of the divine breath of life” It both recognizes the divine breath in ones self and the individual one is thankful for. 

 

At HI Pro Realty we are thankful for our Ohana, friends and clients and wish you a relaxing day of feasting and filial peace, God bless!

Aloha and Happy Thanksgiving, Kimo - in any language, gratitude can spread far and wide when it is in good supply.  And we each have the power to make that happen today and throughout the year.

I did not know that was the actual meaning of Mahalo. I just thought it was "thanks" - it's so much more than that!

I hope your day was wonderful!

Aloha, Kimo and I hope that your Thanksgiving was a wonderful one. I too thought Mahalo merely meant Thank you but it is so much more. Thank you for sharing that.

Aloha, Kimo. I hope you had a wonderful holiday.

I enjoyed learning more about the true meaning of Mahalo. We seem to say it often when visiting HI but I had no idea about the deeper meaning. That seems to be the case of so many Hawaiian words. Thank you.
