Let Go, You Must.


Desire, you feel.

Losing what you want, you fear.

Love, you may.

Let go, you must.

If You Leave Me Now


Go
You won’t go
If you leave me now
I can heal somehow
Back
To the time
When I knew myself
When I knew myself

Give me a reason why you choose to always hurt my soul
I gave you everything, oh baby, please I have to know
Just answer me the question, are you gonna stay or go?
Stay or go?

Oh, no, please don’t go
If you leave me now
If you leave me now
But you stay
If you leave me now
If you leave me now
But you stay

Back to the time
But I know you won’t
But I know you won’t

Give me a reason why you choose to always hurt my soul
I gave you everything, oh baby, please I have to know
Just answer me the question, are you gonna stay or go?
Stay or go?

Oh, no
Please don’t go
If you leave me now
If you leave me now
But you stay
If you leave me now
If you leave me now
But you stay

If you leave me now
Oh, just stay
If you leave me now
If you leave me now

Won’t you stay?
Please don’t go
If you leave me now
If you leave me now

“The Power of Now” video by Aileen of Lavendaire


Here’s a great video “The Power of Now” about living in the present by Aileen of Lavendaire, a young entrepreneur promoting self-development practices on Youtube, her blog, and social media. I love the value she is providing for everyone.

Mindfulness at Starbucks Pearl City with my MacBook Pro


Mindfulness is being present in the moment and making the most of it. The past is the past, the future will be the future, but we can do a lot with now. I  immersed myself with the positive vibes radiating in the Starbucks coffee shop in Pearl City and savored the taste of my Salted Caramel Mocha Frapuccino as I engaged in my work on my MacBook Pro, my favorite toy for 4.5 hours in preparation for next week with all my business partners flying into Honolulu, Hawaii so we can meet with government departments and companies.

Peace Day – September 21, 2017


May peace be with you on this official day of peace recognized by the United Nations, the State of Hawaii and other jurisdictions, and may it always be with you in every moment of your life!

When 7.5 billion of us attain inner peace, the world will be at peace. These pictures are from the 2017 Peace Day Hawaii event on Saturday September 16, 2017 at SGI USA, Honolulu, Hawaii. Hawaii was the first State in the United States to pass a law recognizing September 21st as Peace Day in 2017. I chaired Peace Day Hawaii in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
