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.”

I Find Comfort In The Dark.


I find comfort in the dark

where nothing exists.

The only noise I hear

are from my aching thoughts.

So I inhale my warm feelings

and exhale them to you.

Away they soar

to wherever you are.

It is what it is. What will be, will be.


On my last night visiting my sister Mia and her family in the Bay Area, California, I was playing make-believe with my niece Elyse, as we did a number of times while I was there. We gained supernatural powers and met with mystical and magical beings and creatures in various realms. A poison dragon exhaled some poison. I covered my mouth and told my niece that I was poisoned. “No, it’s trying to help you,” Elyse exclaimed. She grabbed a thick book belonging to my sister and read, “It is what it is. And what will be, will be.” I needed to hear those words, and its impact was huge because it came from my 5-year-old niece.

Bad dream, but on the right path now


I just woke up from a bad dream where I was with one of the two former business partners who stole money from my other business partner and I. I woke up with my heart racing. I began thinking of my other bad experiences in my career, where certain judges and politicians punished me harder because of the high positions I held in government at a young age, to make an example of me before others and sometimes the public. Power and money play a role in making people do mean things against others. My good friend Brandon Mitsuda texted me this beautiful picture of Capri, Italy. I want to vacation there when things settle down. I feel much better. I know I’m on a better path now. I’m seeking peace within me. May peace be with all of you as well.

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.

Let them all go.


Events and people move in and out of our lives – just let them all go. Love the good ones, but don’t let your desires drag you down. Dislike the bad ones, but don’t let the pain drag you down. The only thing that remains consistent is you, unless you let them all drag you down.
