Peace, Rongo (Original)


Peace, Rongo (Original)


The word rongo in this instance is peace, especially after war. The pattern on the first is called huka korio, meaning rapids (the white on top of the water, huka, and currents, korio). This pattern is about forgiving. Forgiveness is not determined by the offending party (them saying sorry), but by the person offended. Forgiveness allows us to live our lives free from the rapids that could drag us down. As we forgive, we move into calmer waters. Forgiveness brings peace. This does not mean we accept poor behaviour towards us – we fight that. Forgiveness frees us from the offenders unwarranted behaviours.
