What are your supernatural experiences? Here’s one of ours. Happy Halloween! πŸ‘»


What are your supernatural experiences? Here's one of ours.

Do you believe in ghosts? I do. Here’s one of my experiences while I was a student government leader at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

What are your supernatural experiences? Here’s one of ours. πŸ‘»

While I was serving as Vice President (“VP”) of the student body at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (Associated Students of the University of Hawaii or ASUH), my friend, a fellow ASUH Senator and I would often study at our student government office where ghostly things would occur at night. πŸ’€

One evening, I was studying for the LSAT in my ASUH VP office. On the left corner of my desk, I had a glass centerpiece from an ASUH banquet. On the centerpiece were two small fake flowers, one green and one white. Strangely, the two flowers had somehow moved next to my right hand. I placed the flowers back behind the tightly tied bow on my centerpiece. I went back to my studying. Some moments later, I noticed the flowers by my right hand again. They were perfectly paired together like the last time and at the same part of my desk. 😱

I told my friend who was working in the main office. We decided to wrap a lot of tape around my centerpiece, securing the two small flowers against the glass. Someone would have to peel layers of tape to free the flowers. We laughed and closed the door of my office. Being that I was a little freaked out, I chose to study in the main office with my friend. After some time had passed, my friend and I decided to check on my centerpiece. We opened the door of my office and turned on its lights. The white flower was missing from my centerpiece. We looked all over my office but couldn’t find it. Just as I was about to sit on my chair, staring at me was the white flower, lying perfectly in the middle of my seat. Happy Halloween! Aloha, Jon 😳

All we really want is to love and be loved. Don’t abandon the child in you. β 


All we really want is to love and be loved. Don't abandon the child in you.

This picture speaks for itself. So powerful.

All we really want is to love and be loved. Don’t abandon the child in you. ⁠
⁠
Pictured is the amazing artwork called “Love” by Ukrainian artist Alexander Milov for the Burning Man showing two adults upset and hurt by one another but the child in each of them wants to forgive and be with each other. Just looking at this picture gets me teary-eyed. If we can see the innocent child in ourselves and others, the world will be a much better place. Sending love to you. ❀️⁠

Are you facing financial challenges? Here are 5 ways to save some money that you can apply in your life.


Are you facing financial challenges?Β Is it because of a business venture(s) you’re working on or did you lose your job? First of all, don’t beat yourself up. Everything we do has a risk. Nothing is 100% safe. Life is about giving things a shot. You succeed, fail, adjust, succeed, fail, adjust . . . We take chances on opportunities, learn, and evolve. That’s how we grow.

When it comes to managing your money during your challenging times, before you purchase something, ask yourself, “Is this something I want or something I need?” Only address your necessities. Put aside your wants for now. Here are 5 ways to save some money that you can apply in your life:

(1) Walk and travel by mass transit instead of owning a vehicle.

(2)Β Cancel services you don’t need.

(3) Use coupons and customer rewards and look for sales when buying necessities.

(4) Maximize the goods you own and express your gratitude for them.

(5) Reuse plastic bags and ziplock bags for your trash.

I’m actually practicing these 5 pointers right now to save money after I undertook financial risks with my recent start-up businesses that I have on my own and with my business partners.Β By downgrading my lifestyle and maximizing small deals and recycling, I lower my stress because I know I’m doing my best with what I can control to undertake my latest journey on my unchartered and often scary adventure. I have other practices that I can share with you later.

Always be grateful for every good thing you have in your life.Β Don’t let the darkness cover them up. Sending you positive energy!

I seek loneliness to protect me.


I seek loneliness to protect me.⁠ This is a poem about wanting inner peace from judgment and attacks. When your work puts you out in the public, you will get judged, attacked, and punished harsher than if you are quiet and anonymous.

I seek loneliness to protect me.⁠
⁠
Hiding my dreams from my enemies.⁠
⁠
If I have nothing, then why would anyone attack me for nothing?⁠
⁠
Little by little, I make my imagination real.⁠
⁠
In time, you can touch it. ⁠
⁠
Then, you can tell me how it makes you feel.⁠

This is a poem about wanting inner peace from judgment and attacks. When your work puts you out in the public, you will get judged, attacked, and punished harsher than if you are quiet and anonymous.  I dedicate this poem to all of you going through your challenges. Keep going my friends! 😊❀️⁠
