The branches of the BA-HA-LA Tree of Life are shaped in the waved formed of the baybayin symbol of HA. The baybayin symbol of HA is a curved, horizontal line and can look like the waves of a river or wind.

 

HA is the first syllable in “hangin” which means wind. The baybayin HA symbol also spells many words that have breath in the meaning—“hininga” to breath in Tagalog, “hawa” and “hanga” breathless wonder/admiration (tagalog), “ginhawa” breathe in Visayan, “harakhak” – laugh loud and breathlessly in Visayan…

In many traditions, from Christian to indigenous, Western to Eastern, wind and breath many times symbolize spirit or life force .

In Hawaii, “ha” has to do with breath and spirit. The word “Aloha” has sacred meaning. David Bray interprets this as “Come forward, be in unity and harmony with your real self, God, and mankind. Be honest, truthful, patient, kind to all life forms, and humble.” He also stated that to the Hawaiian of old, Aloha meant “God in us.”

On a spiritual level, aloha is an invocation of the Divine and mahalo is a Divine blessing. Both are acknowledgments of the Divinity that dwells within and without. Mahalo—[Ma = In] + [hâ = breath] + [alo = presence, front, face]— “(May you be) in (Divine) Breath.” Think of them as single-word blessings or prayers.

The deeper meaning of the word Hawai’i is interpreted by Pete:

“loosely interpreted, ha means breath – the sacred breath that creates life, wai means water – water that sustains life and is a symbol of abundance and ‘i can refer to a supreme force or be a word used to reinforce previous concepts. So the clue to joyous being is to tap into the abundant life force through the breath of life.”
