Ko ʻeku lotú mo e tāpuakí ke ʻoua naʻa teitei ngalo ko e ngaahi ʻofefine mahuʻinga moʻoni kimoutolu ʻi he puleʻanga ʻo e ʻOtuá.

ʻI he kuohilí, ne u ʻeveʻeva ai ʻi ha ngoue fakaʻofoʻofa mo hoku uaifí mo e ʻofefiné. Ne u ofo ʻi he ngeia mo e fakaʻofoʻofa e fakatupu ʻa e ʻOtuá. Ne u toki fakatokangaʻi atu ha kiʻi matalaʻiʻakau siʻisiʻi ʻi he uhouhonga ʻo e ngaahi matala fakaʻofoʻofá. Ne u ʻiloʻi e hingoa ʻo e matalaʻi ʻakau ko ʻení he naʻe ʻi ai ʻeku ongo makehe ki ai, talu ʻeku kei siʻi. Ko e hingoa e matalaʻi ʻakaú ko e ‘oua-naʻa-ngalo-aú.

ʻOku ʻikai ke u ʻiloʻi pe ko e hā hono ʻuhinga ʻoku fuʻu mahuʻinga pehē ai kiate au e kiʻi matalaʻi ʻakau ko ʻení he ngaahi taʻu lahí ni. ʻOku ʻikai ke ne tohoakiʻi vave e tokangá; he ʻoku faingofua hono taʻefakatokangaʻí ʻi he lotolotonga ʻo e ngaahi matalaʻiʻakau lalahi lanu kehekehé; ka ʻoku fakaʻofoʻofa foki hono lanu mālohí he ʻoku tatau ia mo e lanu pulū ʻa e langí—mahalo ko e ʻuhinga ia ʻe taha ʻo ʻeku saiʻia aí.

Pea ʻoku ʻi ai ha foʻi kole fakaʻofa ʻoku fai ʻe hono hingoá. ʻOku ʻi ai ha talatupuʻa faka-Siamane ʻo pehē hili pē hono fakahingoa kotoa ʻe he ʻOtuá e ʻakaú, naʻe tuku taʻefakahingoa pē ha ʻakau ʻe taha. Naʻe toki lea hake ha kiʻi leʻo ʻo pehē, “ʻE ʻEiki, ʻoua muʻa naʻa ngalo au!” Pea toki tali ange ʻe he ʻOtuá, ko e hingoa ia ʻe ui ʻaki iá.

ʻOku ou fie fakaʻaongaʻi e matalaʻi ʻakau ko ʻení ko ha fakafehoanaki. ʻOku hanga ʻe he lau ʻe nima ʻo e matalaʻi ʻakaú ʻo ueʻi au ke u fakakaukauʻi ha meʻa ʻe nima ʻe lelei ke ʻoua ʻaupito naʻa ngalo ʻiate kitautolu.

ʻUluakí, ʻoua naʻa ngalo ke lahi hoʻo kātakí.

ʻOku ou fie fakahā atu ha meʻa ʻoku ou ʻamanaki pē ʻe tonu hoʻomou vakai ki aí: ʻOku ʻafioʻi lelei pē ʻe he ʻOtuá ʻoku ʻikai ke tau haohaoa.

Te u tānaki atu: ʻOku ʻafioʻi lelei foki ʻe he ʻOtuá ʻoku ʻikai ke haohaoa e kakai ʻokú ke pehē ʻoku haohaoá.

Ka ʻoku tau fakamoleki ha taimi mo e ivi lahi ʻi hono fakafehoanaki kitautolu ki he niʻihi kehé—ʻo tau faʻa fakatatau hotau ngaahi vaivaí ki honau mālohingá. ʻOku tupu heni ʻetau fokotuʻu haʻatau ngaahi taumuʻa ʻoku faingataʻa ke aʻusia. Ko hono olá, ko e ʻikai ke tau fakafiefiaʻi ʻetau ngaahi ngāue leleí he ʻoku ngali tōnounou ia mei he meʻa ʻoku fakahoko ʻe ha taha kehe.

ʻOku ʻi ai ha ngaahi mālohinga mo e vaivaiʻanga ʻo e tokotaha kotoa pē.

ʻOku lelei ke ʻi ai hao ngaahi mālohinga.

Pea ko e konga pē ia ʻo e moʻui fakamatelié ke ʻi ai hao ngaahi vaivaiʻanga.

ʻOku finangalo ʻa e ʻOtuá ke Ne tokoniʻi kitautolu ke liliu hotau ngaahi vaivaí ke hoko ko ha ngaahi mālohinga,1 ka ʻokú Ne ʻafioʻi ko ha taumuʻa ʻeni ke ngāueʻi ʻi ha taimi lōloa. ʻOkú Ne finangalo ke tau haohaoa,2 pea kapau te tau nofo maʻu ʻi he hala ʻo e tuʻunga fakaākongá, te tau aʻusia ia ha ʻaho. ʻOku sai pē he ʻoku teʻeki ke ke aʻu lelei ki ai. Hokohoko atu hoʻo ngāueʻi iá pea tuku hoʻo tauteaʻi pē koé.

Siʻi tuofāfine, ʻoku ʻi ai hamou tokolahi ʻoku ʻikai hano ngataʻanga ʻenau manavaʻofa mo kātakiʻi e ngaahi vaivai ʻo e niʻihi kehé. Manatuʻi muʻa ke ke manavaʻofa pea ʻai ke lahi hoʻo kātakí.

Ka ʻi he taimi ní, houngaʻia ʻi he fanga kiʻi lavameʻa iiki kotoa ʻi ho ʻapí, ʻi ho vā fakafāmilí, ʻi hoʻo akó mo e maʻuʻanga moʻuí, ʻi hoʻo kau ki he Siasí mo hoʻo fakalakalaka fakafoʻituituí. Hangē ko e kiʻi matalaʻi ʻakaú ni, mahalo ʻe ngali iiki e fanga kiʻi lavameʻa ko ʻení kiate koe pe ʻikai fakatokangaʻi ia ʻe he niʻihi kehé, ka ʻoku ʻafioʻi kinautolu ʻe he ʻOtuá pea ʻoku ʻikai ko ha meʻa siʻisiʻi ia kiate Ia. Kapau ʻokú ke pehē ko e lavameʻá pē ʻa e matalaʻi lose haohaoá pe ʻōketi fakaʻofoʻofá, ʻe lava ke mole ai meiate koe ha niʻihi ʻo e ngaahi aʻusia fungani taha ʻo e moʻuí.

Hangē ko ʻení, mahalo pē ʻoku ʻikai ko e fili lelei tahá ʻa hoʻo vili taʻeʻunua ko ia ke “haohaoa ʻaupito” hoʻomou efiafi fakafāmili ʻi ʻapí he uike takitaha—neongo ʻe hoko hono aʻusia iá ko ha fakamamahi— kiate koe pea mo e niʻihi kehé. Ka ke fehuʻi loto pē, “Ko e hā te mau lava ʻo fai fakafāmili ʻe fakafiefia mo fakalaumālie pea mau toe vāofi ange aí?” Ko e efiafi fakafāmili ko ia ʻi ʻapí —neongo ʻene ngali siʻisiʻi hono fakahokó—ka ʻe lahi mo tuʻuloa ange ʻa e ola ia ʻe maʻu mei aí.

ʻOku lōloa e fononga ki he haohaoá, ka te tau lava ʻo aʻusia ha meʻa fakaofo pea fakafiefia ai ʻi he fanga kiʻi kupu siʻisiʻi taha ʻo e fonongá.

Uá, ʻoua naʻa ngalo e faikehekehe ʻo e feilaulau leleí mo e feilaulau fakavalevalé.

Ko e feilaulau leleí, ko e taimi ia ʻokú ke tukuange ai ha meʻa lelei koeʻuhí ko ha meʻa ʻoku mahuʻinga ange.

Ko e feilaulau leleí, ʻa hono tukuange ho taimi mohé ka ke tokoniʻi ha kiʻi tamasiʻi ʻoku misi ki ha meʻa fakailifia. ʻOku tau ʻilo kotoa ʻeni. ʻOku ʻikai ko ha feilaulau lelei haʻate ʻā he poó kotoa ko hono teuteuʻi ke masani ha kofu ʻo ʻete tama fefiné ki he Sāpaté, he ʻoku ʻikai ke fakatupu moʻui lelei ia.

ʻOku kehekehe ʻa e tokotaha mo e tuʻunga kotoa pē, pea ko ha feilaulau lelei ʻi ha meʻa ʻe tahá ʻe ala hoko ia ko ha feilaulau ngalivale ʻi he meʻa ʻe tahá.

Te tau lava fēfē ke tala ʻa e faikehekehe ʻi hotau tūkungá? Te tau ala fehuʻi loto pē, “ʻOku ou tukutaha nai hoku taimí mo hoku iví ki he ngaahi meʻa ʻoku mahuʻinga tahá?” ʻOku lahi ha ngaahi meʻa lelei ke fai, ka he ʻikai ke tau lava ke fai kotoa kinautolu. ʻOku hoifua taha ʻa e Tamai Hēvaní ʻi he taimi te tau feilaulauʻi ai ha meʻa lelei koeʻuhí ko ha meʻa lelei ange ʻoku taumuʻa taʻengata. Taimi ʻe niʻihi, ʻe ʻuhinga ia ki hono lehilehiʻi e fanga kiʻi matalaʻi ʻakau siʻisiʻi kae fakaʻofoʻofa ʻo e ʻoua naʻa ngalo aú kae ʻikai ko ha ngoue matalaʻiʻakau lahi ʻoku ʻikai ke tau angamaheni ki ai.

Tolú, ʻoua naʻa ngalo ke ke fiefia he taimí ni.

ʻI he talanoa manakoa ʻa e fānaú ko e Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, ʻoku fufuuʻi ai ʻe he tokotaha ngaohi lole fakaofo ko Willy Wonka (Uili Uongikaá) ha tikite koula ʻi ha ngaahi pā lole ʻe nima peá ne fanongonongo ko ia pē te ne maʻu ha taha ʻo e ngaahi tikité te ne lava ʻo mamataʻi hono fale ngaohi ʻanga sokoletí pea ʻe ʻoange maʻu pē haʻane sokoleti lolotonga ʻene moʻuí.

Ko e pōpoaki ʻeni ne hiki ʻi he tikite koula takitaha: “Mālō e lelei, ko e tokotaha monūʻia ʻokú ke maʻu e Tikite Koulá ni precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. “I’ve been thinking,” he said, “I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me something more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone.

‘I he talanoa fungani mo ongoongoá ni, ʻoku holi lahi e kakai he māmaní ke maʻu ha tikite koula. ʻOku ongoʻi ʻe ha niʻihi ʻoku fakafalala ʻenau fiefia kakato he kahaʻú ki haʻanau maʻu pe ʻikai ke maʻu e tikite koulá. ʻI heʻenau hohaʻá, ʻoku kamata ke ngalo ai ʻi he kakaí ʻa e fiefia ne nau faʻa maʻu ʻi ha kiʻi pā lolé. ʻOku hoko leva e kiʻi pā lolé ia ko ha fakatupu ʻita moʻoni kapau ʻoku ʻikai faʻo ai e tikite koulá.

ʻOku tatali ha kakai tokolahi he ʻahó ni ki heʻenau tikite koulá—ʻa e tikite ʻoku nau tui ʻokú ne pukepuke ʻa e kī ki he fiefia kuo nau faʻa fakaʻānaua ki aí. Ki ha niʻihi, mahalo ko e tikite koula ko iá ʻa e mali fiefiá; ki ha niʻihi, mahalo ko ha ʻapi masani ʻoku ʻasi he peesi ʻuluaki ʻo ha makasini; pe mahalo, ko e tauʻatāina ia mei he ongoʻi mafasiá pe hohaʻá.

ʻOku ʻikai hano kovi ʻo e ngaahi fakaʻānaua māʻoniʻoní ia—ʻoku tau ʻamanaki lelei mo fekumi ki he ngaahi meʻa ʻoku “māʻoniʻoni, fakaʻofoʻofa pe ongoongo lelei pe feʻunga mo hono vikivikiʻí.” 4 ʻOku hoko mai e palopalemá he taimi ʻoku fakatoloi ai ʻetau fiefiá koʻetau tatali ke toki hoko ha meʻa he kahaʻú—ʻi hano maʻu mai—ʻetau tikite koulá.

Naʻe ʻi ai ha fefine ko ʻene fakaʻamu taupotu tahá pē ke mali mo ha tangata maʻu lakanga fakataulaʻeiki moʻui angatonu ʻi he temipalé pea ke ne hoko ko ha uaifi pe faʻē.

Ko ʻene tikite koulá ia. Ko e meʻa pē ia naʻe fakafalala ki ai ʻene moʻuí. Ko e meʻa pē ia ʻe taha ʻi he moʻuí naʻá ne fakaʻamua taupotu tahá.

Naʻe ʻikai fie feohi e kakaí mo ia pea naʻa nau fakaʻehiʻehi mei ai. Naʻe tō ʻa hono ʻitá ki he fānau akó. Naʻe ʻikai ke ne faʻa fakamaʻumaʻu ʻene ʻitá pea naʻe faʻa ʻiteʻita mo ongoʻi taʻelata.

Ko e meʻa fakamamahi ʻi he talanoa ko ʻení, ko e tupu mei he loto mamahi e fefiné ni heʻene fiu tali ki heʻene tikite koulá, naʻe ʻikai ke ne fakatokangaʻi ai ʻe ia ʻa e ngaahi tāpuaki kuó ne ʻosi maʻú.

ʻI he taimi ʻe niʻihi ʻi heʻetau moʻuí, ʻoku ʻikai ke tau faʻa fakatokangaʻi ha konga mahuʻinga ʻo e ongoongolelei ʻo Sīsū Kalaisí, ʻo hangē ko ha ʻikai fakatokangaʻi ʻe ha taha ha matalaʻi ʻakau fakaʻofoʻofa mo pelepelengesi. ʻI heʻetau feinga mālohi ko ia ke fakahoko kotoa hotau ngaahi fatongiá mo e tufakanga ʻi heʻetau hoko ko e kāingalotu ʻo e Siasí, ʻoku tau faʻa taku ai ko e ongoongoleleí ko ha lisi pē ia ʻo ha ngaahi fatongia kuo pau ke tau tānaki ki heʻetau lisi lōloa ʻo e ngaahi “ngāue ke faí,” hangē ko ha taimi kuo pau ke tau fakahū ki heʻetau taimi-tēpile femoʻuekiná. ʻOku fakatefito ʻetau tokangá ʻi he meʻa ʻoku finangalo e ʻEikí ke tau faí pea mo e founga ke tau fai ʻaki iá, ka ko e taimi ʻe niʻihi ʻoku ngalo ʻiate kitautolu ʻa hono ʻuhingá.
