"An Interpretation of Hale Makua's Grand Ancestral Plan"
presented by Lehua Lopez
with music by Vibodha
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
- Maya Angelou
Hale Makua, who passed away in 2004, is often described as a humble man who was seen as "...the keeper of an extraordinary and possibly unequaled body of knowledge. He was also a warrior, a mystic, a sage and an accomplished healer." Lehua Lopez had an extraordinary vision of him in April, 2012, and his words continue to influence her life and work. Over the last four years, she has studied Makua's two-page description of his vision of a 'Grand Ancestral Plan.' Lehua will discuss her spiritual and social interpretation of Makua's 'Grand Ancestral Plan, along with the influence of Hale Makua on her work.
Excerpt from Hale Makua's "The Ancestral Grand Plan" 2003 (all rights reserved)
"...if such a PLAN exists, it presupposes those who are responsible for the originating of the PLAN and for its successful carrying forward. From the standpoint of average humanity, which thinks in terms of earthly happiness, the PLAN should be something joyful and something which would make material life easier. To the spiritual HIERARCHY, the PLAN of the ancestors involves those arrangements of circumstances which will raise and expand the consciousness of mankind and enable them, therefore, to discover the spiritual values for themselves and to make the needed changes of their own free will, and thus produce the demanded betterment of the family, culture, and environment, with the unfolding spiritual recognition."
Lehua Lopez, a native Hawaiian cultural anthropologist, has been researching Hawaiian culture for more than 40 years. She has been teaching topics in Hawaiian culture at the New Thought Center for the past year. Born and raised in Hawai`i Nei, she is a gifted presenter and delights her audiences with mesmerizing stories and complex insights."
