Effectiveness is the Measure of Truth

Hey we’ve finally come to the end of our mini-adventure to Hawaii! Time to bring it all together with the last principle of Huna of Hawaiian Shamanism which is called Pono, or:

Effectiveness is the measure of truth.

When I read this principle, so much came to my consciousness:

What works for you may not work for me.

Just because it doesn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it won’t work for someone else.

If something doesn’t work, try something different.

To keep searching until something does work and never lose hope.

What really matters in the end is that it worked for you and to not care if nobody else finds benefit or value.

And as an add-on:

It’s not really necessary or important to understand why it worked, but only that it did. Although it’s fun to see if you can figure out why…!

Ever since I began my own journey, starting with physical training and performance to biohacking to resolving my own blocks and barriers and healing, I have realized that:

The world is a BIG place.

No one person can know everything. 

Ignore the people who make you feel like crap when what they suggest didn’t work.

The answer is always out there (and in one instance it took me nearly 10 years!).

Never discount anything!

Be open to everything!

Never give up hope!

Never give up PERIOD.

Enjoy the journey of discovery and the result!

How many of you are working on some issue in your life? What did you try so far – did you just try one thing and stop? Did you lose hope after an expert you consulted told you to try something and didn’t get anywhere? Did an expert, or even someone in your life, tell you couldn’t ever resolve the issue? Or have you been on a path of trying everything and are running out of ideas and resources?

Have you given up? Are you sitting in a pool of negativity, judgement, fear, disappointment? Think you’ve tried everything there is to try?

If so, go back and read the list of my own learnings. What comes up for you when you do?

Review the other principles of Huna again:

The world is what YOU think it is.

There are NO limits. Anything is possible.

Energy flows where attention goes.

NOW is the moment of power.

To LOVE is to be happy with.

All power comes from WITHIN.

Where is the energy for the search for something that works for you now?
