Death falls on us now.


Time – Fluffy snowflakes,

falling onto my footsteps.

Death falls on us now.

Working @ Coffee Talk!


20180311_133535.jpg

Chaired my board of directors meeting for Jodo Shu Hawaii earlier and now working at Coffee Talk in Kaimuki, Hawaii while my mom attends a meeting for wellness products. I’ve been in the zone for the past week, pulling off nonstop writing and learning sessions of up to 10 hours straight at coffee shops. I snapped out of a low and depressive energy period caused by stress and anxiety – partly because life and death became very real when I had to save my cousin-in-law from choking on food. There’s so much I want to accomplish before I die. I want to play a small role in providing value to others, especially in products and services that can help others find peace. So excited to work!!!

End Ourselves With Everything We’ve Got


We know what’s our means and what’s our end. Build up our closure and end ourselves with everything we’ve got.

Death and Life Threatening Illnesses


Thinking of my loved ones who passed away, and those of you facing life threatening illnesses. If I spent five days in prison in order to have them back for a moment or to take away your suffering from killer diseases . . . I look within myself to find clarity. Love you all.

Nonattachment and Gratitude


An example of nonattachment and gratitude combined. Two very powerful practices. “My love will always be attached to you, but not my selfish desires. I’m forever grateful for what I had with you. I love you.”

It Understands Me


My laptop listens.

I spill my thoughts and feelings.

It understands me.
