Keep flying with positivity!


When you work hard and put yourself out there, people will judge you, hate you, and punish you harder, but you keep going for the smiles and tears on the faces you’ve helped. Keep flying with positivity my friends!

Let Go, You Must.


Desire, you feel.

Losing what you want, you fear.

Love, you may.

Let go, you must.

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.

Consistency 


When we consistently work at our goals, our highest potential is revealed, and often times, we will attain things we’ve dreamt about. – Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/20/2017 –

Help me to find it


Help me to find it.

Maybe it is not out there.

Look inside of me.

Sadness Feels So Good


Sadness feels so good.
Like a drug, it makes me high.
Inject it with love.
