I’m so happy for actor and entrepreneur Keanu Reeves for getting his hand and footprints memorialized in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre!


I’m so happy for #actor and #entrepreneur Keanu Reeves for getting his hand and footprints memorialized in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Tuesday May 14, 2019. When I was a teen, I told my mom and dad that he was going to be a huge star. With his mixed ethnicity of Hawaiian, Chinese, and Caucasian, he has represented us minorities in the U.S. well. Keanu’s #compassion and #humbleness has made him a #superstar among stars!!! 💫

Peace is my purpose.


Peace is my purpose.

I became a lawyer and politician with this goal in mind through the laws and programs I created or supported.

I enjoy business because #commerce can connect people when a great value is provided.

I love writing fiction because you can touch the souls of people by evoking their emotions through the struggles your characters go through. If you can make a reader have compassion and empathy for a character they would have disliked or even hated but for the story, then you’ve played a small role in bridging the division created by human judgment. Such stories can be adapted into audio and visual form such as audio books and movies to reach a greater audience.

Nonfiction writing can play a role in our self-development in not just our career but our personal development to attain inner peace. If all of us are at peace, the world will be at peace.

So what do you think about attaining world peace? If we break it down into bite size pieces and work on ourselves and help others every single day, it’s possible right!

May peace be with you! Sending you positive energy!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

My little blue Daruma for my learning goals!


Attached to my REI @rei Bookpacker Plus #backpack is a little blue Daruma I bought in Japan some years ago. A Daruma is a Japanese handmade doll. When you make a #goal , you color one eye. When you achieve your goal, you color in the other eye. Notice how the doll is round. If it gets knocked down, it’ll get back up. That’s how we should be with our #goals – #tenacious and #determined . I read that a blue Daruma is for our #learning goals. For me, learning is extremely important because we can create value for others by mixing our #ideas with the #knowledge we attain. If we can learn 1% or more everyday, we can surprise ourselves on how far we can go! I enjoy products like Daruma dolls to #motivate me to keep working towards my #vision !

Have fun in your learning process!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

We can only be brave if we’re willing to be vulnerable. 👊


We can only be brave if we’re willing to be vulnerable. 👊

If we want a dream, we have to put ourselves out there to judgment, rejection, and hate. 👊

If we want love, we have to open ourselves to judgment, rejection, and heartbreak. 💔

Play it safe or go for it?

I say, “Go for it!” 😊

Blast away to our stars where we can be who we want to be.


Fly away with me.

Break these walls of society.

Blast away to our stars

where we can be who we want to be.

We’ll create for those who believe.

The haters can’t judge what they can’t see.

One thousand true fans are all we need.

We’ll plant our love, seed by seed.

With patience and time, we will succeed.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Poem, 4/7/2019 –

I dedicate this poem to all you working on your dreams. Like many of you, I’m going through the process. Despite the tears, anxiety, and stress, keep working at it day by day! By doing so, we will improve ourselves by 1% or more everyday. No matter what, we will gain knowledge, skills, and relationships! Getting our dream is the bonus.

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

“I’m Racing Against Time” – Racing Against Time Part IX


You elevated me with this high.

Break open another special moment.

I hold my heart. It’s thumping. I’m still alive.

How many thumps do I have left before I die?

Back at my computer, I download my mind.

I have to keep going. I’m racing against time.

I have more to do, more to share.

My joy, my pain, how much I care.

Detach the anger, detach the hate.

If we all have love, we can determine our world’s fate.
