“Moving a Mountain” & A New Research Project
MORE ON THE WORD “BLESS,” as used by na kahuna, seems to be needed. In a recent H.V. I pointed out the fact that the ancient meaning of “bless” was “to sprinkle with the blood of a sacrificed animal.” The word itself, while derived from the base word, “blood,” has taken on quite different meanings for us. We may paraphrase “bless” by saying, “May you be healed and cleansed and guided.” We may be praying that a Higher Being help the one for whom we desire help. Or, we may propose to do the helping ourselves as best we can. Read more
Instant Healing & More Taro & P.A. Readings
AFTER YEARS OF WAITING, A SPIRIT KAHUNA IS FOUND
It is great news and a most interesting story. One of the newer HRAs, living in Chicago, is a busy doctor, but he has found time to investigate mediumism and has been having seances with a woman medium who seems to have come from Algiers, and who calls herself “Princess,” but who speaks good American English at all times, even when giving messages (in the same voice without change) from great men of the past such as Plato, and moving on down the list to Abraham Lincoln.
A TAPE RECORDING was sent me on loan by Dr. O., when, at my request, he had asked the medium to see if she could get more information from a spirit who had been located at the request of Dr. O. and who had made some remarks about the healing methods of na kahuna. I had asked that some information be given by the spirit in one of the eleven dialects of the basic tongue of the Polynesian. In earlier years I had made the same request where other spirits who claimed to be na kahuna were communicating, and in no case were the spirits able to do more than make excuses. (It goes without saying that the “messages” given by these pretenders threw no fresh light on Huna.) Read more
“The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth” … Huna Style
Dec. 10, 1955
EXTRA EXTRA! WE BREAK INTO THE NEWS!
The new 96-page magazine, edited by none other than our own HRA Irys Vorel, and named COSMIC GUIDE, should be on the larger news stands by the time you receive this Bulletin, and in it will be an article with pen sketches of the house here in Vista and an account of how we prayed it into actuality. The first number will be 25$, but later numbers probably will cost 35c. The subscription rate for seven issues is $2. If you fail to find it on the newsstand, send 50$ for a copy, if you wish one, to Cosmic Guide, 261 Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y.
I hesitate to say, “Subscribe!” owing to the fact that a few magazines which I recommended as they started out bravely, soon folded and the balance of the subscription money went up the spout (wherever such spouts lead). However, this one is backed by experienced magazine publishers and promises to last longer. It will contain much material not to be found in magazines of the ordinary type, and may stress the success had by various persons in using what we may call “metaphysics” in a very broad sense – even stretching the word to cover Huna, which is like to nothing else in that general classification. THE ROUND ROBIN magazine, published by our friend of many years, H.R.A. N. Meade Layne, immediately comes to mind when speaking of magazines which are hard to keep going, but which give evidence of having seven lives (like our own HRA “kitty,” the imaginary “Cigbo,” who is, in reality, our cigar box where HRA donations are kept for the short periods before they are taken out to buy stamps and paper and all the many things needed by our work.)

To Be Good or Not To Be Good
April 15, 1953
THE TESTING OF SIGNATURES, OLD PHOTOS, still older signatures, etc., for the new GROWTH-DEVELOPMENT project still goes on in all spare moments. I am sure I will get everyone processed for preliminary tests before the second set is due on June 1st. When the second set of signatures arrives, I will test them in turn and compare the readings with those of signatures made before the intensive effort period started. If there is no change in the reading, we will say that no progress was made. If there is a change, we will recheck all signatures and try to see the significance of pattern or brain radiation changes. Read more
SSBM and a New Project!
March 1, 1953
THE REPRINT ON SSBM IS FINISHED and copies may now be ordered as before except that the price has been raised from $3 to $3.89. Printing prices having risen, paper having risen, and prices on small printings being higher than on large former ones. The gift book on sleep suggestion is still included in the package free if ordered through Kosmon Press. If ordered from HRA Gordon Collier, 72 Orchard St., Tarrytown, N.Y., the gift book will be one by Worth Smith on the pyramid prophesies.
AUTOGRAPHED COPIES OF SSBM with the sleep suggestion gift book in the package, and with the eight pages of illustrations to be tacked in, may be had by sending the order to me to get filled. Price for this is $4, as all books sent to me to be autographed and forwarded to you take 12 cents for the California sales tax and an extra 12 cents of postage to carry the book from the printer (who stores them and mails them from Tennessee directly to you) has to send them first out to me in response to the order of Kosmon Press. I have to pay the sales tax whether you live out here or not, then autograph the book as you request (to any friend you may name, or just by signing my name on the title page – please remember to say which you want), and put on another 12 cents in postage to get the book on its way to you. (If you want the combination offer with the pyramid prophesies gift book, send the $3.89 to HRA Collier for the book package and instruct him to mail it directly to me. Then write to me to tell me how you want it autographed, enclose 12 cents in stamps, and, if we do not get everything hopelessly mixed up, the Tarrytown package should eventually reach you or your friend to whom you may ask me to send it. The books are not insured against loss in the mails unless requested and enough for insurance is added. Hope you can make head and tail of all these complications.) Read more
Max’s Vacation Reading
Feb. 15, 1953
MY VACATION actually came and, thanks to all of you allowing me to skip a Bulletin issue. I had a grand period of rest, with time to enjoy the Arizona desert places, to meditate some, to pray and hold the TMHG periods, and to catch up with the reading of accumulated articles and books, many of which had been sent in through the kindness of one HRA or another. I also was able to get hold of a copy of the massive Strong’s Concordance of the Bible, and to do some checking in it to further verify the Huna-in-Bible finds and add to them in various ways, as well as to note down many things to be looked into later when time allows.

Voodoo & The “Elementals”
January 15, 1953
More about Voodoo has been written in the year just past by Marcus Bach who won his doctorate in creative writing and dramatic art, and who teaches in the School of Religion at the University of Iowa. Dr. Bach specializes in investigating and reporting the “little-known religious groups of America,” and has now added the Voodoo of Haiti to his list. Part of his research was aided by a grant or fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation, so he has been able to cover his chosen field rather well.
About two years ago Dr. Bach dropped in to call on me and to find out whether or not Huna and the HRA represented a “faith” and a cult organization worth writing up and including in his book, then in the writing THEY HAVE FOUND A FAITH. I explained that we were a research and experimental group and not at all in the class with Jehovah’s Witnesses, Father-Divine’s “kingdoms,” Psychiana, Unity and others of the same stripe. Some time later I was much pleased when HRA Mrs. Walter Grimm sent me a copy of the book. It was very interesting and the clay feet were not stressed greatly when the several founders were discussed. Dr. Bach feels that whenever there is found a faith by which people can live, and which fills their needs, that faith is worthwhile regardless of what it is or who invented or assembled it. Read more
The “Will” ~ “Optimum State” ~ Memory
Oct. 15, 1952
READING OF THE “WILL” PATTERN
KUDA BUX, who uses “eyeless sight” and who fire-walks, as mentioned in the last Bulletin, seems to be traveling most of his time and giving exhibitions of his trained psychic powers. However, HRA Edward S. Schultz, of Buffalo, N.Y., will try to make contact with him and see if we can interest him in the HRA efforts and get his help in such matters as he may see fit to discuss with us. It would be very interesting to run tests on his signature written at the beginning of his training, say around 15, and as of today. The Biometer might show some interesting changes in the will or personality pattern or the reading in degrees of the brain radiation. Read more
Original Sin & Kala Cleansing

A LETTER TO CIGBO
Dear Cigbo (Profit, if any): Well, Kat, what have you to say now? Do you still think the ‘spiriks’ were talking through their hats when they predicted severe quakes for California?” (Signed, Uncle A.)
CIGBO REPLIES: “Dear Uncle A, Since you call my attention to it, I got to admit there seemed some little bit of a comeup-pants here recently. But, I claim the same ‘out’ as the spirits do when THEY predict. They always say when nothing comes off (or maybe I better say comes on) that it is because over there the time elemink is not so good as ours, aka clocks not being so hot. Then they say, ‘But just you wait! It may not have come to pass three or two or even one year ago, like I said, cross my heart, it would, but the time business is to blame.’ Read more
Huna in Christianity
July 15, 1952
THE TREGEAR MAORI-POLYNESIAN COMPARATIVE DICTIONARY HAS BEEN FOUND!!!
Thanks to the guidance given HRA Mrs. Lovisa Y. Ayres and to her energy and kindness. She wrote to a good friend in New Zealand, explaining our great need, and her friend immediately began a search in the city of Auckland – which had been combed repeatedly in the past with no luck – and in a small used book store, she discovered a Tregear. It is battered, but she described it in her air mail letter as all there, and that is the main thing.
An hour from the time her air letter arrived saying the dealer would hold the treasure for us until we could write, my air letter and a draft were on the way. It will take several weeks to get the dictionary as there is very slow service by ship mail, but that can be endured just so long as the book has been found. Read more
