Personal Spiritual Growth

HunaWisdom™ is often confused with a religion, but it is not a religion - at least in the conventional sense of the word . That is because there is no dogma or a set of beliefs that must be accepted on faith. Instead it is an axiom-based system of wisdom that is totally grounded in Reality. In HunaWisdom™, non-historical stories are clearly identified as teaching metaphors, not to be confused with actual events.

Axioms are statements that require no belief because they can intuitively known to be real. For those who could use a little refresher on what an axiom is, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it this way: “an established rule or principle or a self-evident truth”.

  • An example would be: “No one can give what he does not have.”
  • In geometry another example would be: “For two points on the same plane, the shortest distance between them is a straight line.”
  • When it comes to social values, America’s Founders founded the Declaration of Independence on this axiom: “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” Notice the phrase “We hold these truths to be self-evident . . .” This is proof that America’s Founders understood the supreme importance of building this country on axioms because axioms serve as the strongest foundation possible for any philosophy - especially one where the goal is to regulate human behavior..
Dogma is fundamentally different. Dogma requires beliefs. Beliefs can be starting points for a hypothesis, but neither they nor the hypothesis that flows from them can be known to be real unless they are tested and found to work reliably. For example I can believe that the earth is flat. I can be sure that is true right up to the point where evidence demonstrates that the earth is a round planet. Then I have two choices. I can either give up my belief that the earth is flat or I can ignore any contradictory evidence, marginalize it, or attempt to explain it away. Despite those efforts, because the earth is a sphere no matter how much I want to believe it isn’t so, it remains the “is-ness” of the matter.

The Goal Is Enlightenment

The goal of life is Enlightenment. That being true it is interesting to observe that few people realize this and even fewer know what Enlightenment is, why it is so valuable, or how to achieve it.
