In past ages, several arts, sciences and other unclassified but compact units of knowledge were developed by slow steps to various levels of perfection.
The science of Mathematics was sufficiently exact to allow almost full perfection. The several arts which were developed have not been greatly advanced even in modern times, although such things as Law, Medicine, Physics and Sociology have advanced to new levels.
Of the unclassified but compact units of knowledge, only one was pushed almost to the top level. This was the unit which we are coming to call "Huna" or, to give the word its translation, "The Secret".
Huna is difficult to classify because it includes at least three poorly developed sciences, two of them still in their infancy, Psychology and Psychic Science. These are the sciences of man considered as a conscious being who lives in a physical body during the period of earthly life, but survives and lives in a different "body" after death. A branch of Psychology which also needs to be included in any survey, is that now studied as a condition of consciousness in which the vague thing called "mind" functions improperly. This is still labeled Abnormal Psychology. It deals with such things as dual personality changes.
... The esoteric or initiatory material of Huna was kept within the hereditary priesthood of the kahunas, never being written down. But in order to allow a lasting and foolproof account of Huna to be preserved for all the ages, a special language was invented, providing a means of giving an inner and outer meaning to any statement of the teachings. Such statements as were made in this "sacred language" formed a code which could not be broken unless one already was familiar with at least part of the Huna lore and with the word-symbols used to name elements of the system.
It is evident that the kahunas and their people made up a race apart from the Egyptians and others with whom they either lived or were closely associated. It is also rather clear that, sometime between the Mosaic and Christian periods, they left and began a long migration to find new homes in what we now call "Polynesia". In their new homes, speaking only the "sacred language", they flourished for a number of centuries, preserving intact their language and the secret knowledge which it had been constructed to conceal and yet reveal.
In their new Pacific Island homes, the kahunas used no writing, depending on memory alone to keep Huna pure and intact. But the initiate kahunas who remained behind, and who may have been of a different race, allowed the writing down of teachings from Huna. The writing was never done in any dialect of the "sacred language", but original statements were translated invariably into some other tongue. This hid from the eyes of the curious the words which had originally been made to carry double meanings, and made it all but impossible for anyone not familiar with the language of the "Secret" to break the code.

INTRODUCTION
This information concerning those parts of psychology which we have come to callhypnosis, mesmerism and suggestion, is being presented as an addition to the scantliterature on the ancient psycho-religious system of the Polynesians called "Huna" or the"Secret".It is taken for granted that the reader will already have gone through the first three booksdealing with the rediscovery of Huna (The Secret Science Behind Miracles, The SecretScience At Work, and Growing Into Light). But for those who come to this book withoutknowledge of what has been uncovered up to the present time, an appendix is suppliedgiving a brief outline of the ten simple elements which make possible the more practicalapplication of certain psychological principles hitherto unknown, at least in modern days.Although a perusal of the appendix will enable one to understand the ideas embodied inHuna, and which are frequently mentioned in this treatise, it will be well for the seriousstudent who wishes to have all of the proofs of the verity of Huna beliefs to read thebooks mentioned above. In them will be found background materials which will bringone up to date on what is perhaps the most important specialized collection of anthropological findings in this century.A word of thanks is given here for assistance in testing the theories and methods herepresented for

 validity and practicality. Foremost amongst those to be thanked are the Huna ResearchAssociates, and, especially, some of the more able researchers in that widely scatteredorganization. The secondary thanks goes to the many men who have explored the field of human consciousness in the past and who have helped bring to us such psychologicalknowledge as we now possess.Max Freedom LongVista, California, U.
