Positive Attitude

A positive attitude empowers people to live life fulfilled through unconditional love and gratitude for self, others, and life.

See and Accept

If you can see and accept that you create your own stress according to how you are responding, you will then see that there is something you need to unlearn as well as learn. The old response needs to be unlearned, and a new response needs to be learned.

Time Limits

Set no time limits. Learn to live in the present moment and respond to your intuitive guidance. There are times when to act; times when to hold. You will get to know which is which.

Of All the Beliefs

What if we looked at ourselves as the accumulation of all the beliefs we’ve been exposed to and took on as our own. And what if we made a vow to rebuild ourselves with new, more useful beliefs? What belief system would you build? Would it be one that supported your desires and wants? Ones that encouraged and emphasized understanding, openness, happiness, acceptance,
and love? If you could, would your personal happiness be a priority in your life?

Mindfulness is a practice where you bring your attention and awareness to each thought, feeling and activity as it is occurring. This way you can catch negative thoughts before they take over and drag you down with them. You can notice heavier emotions and breathe into them, allowing them to process and release. Our natural state is light and joyful, but if we are not mindful we may cover this up by dwelling on unpleasant thoughts and feelings. Be in the present moment every moment and be aware of the bigger picture, not just the current difficult situation.

Focusing On Negatives

Avoid dwelling on downers. Focusing on negatives isn't just unpleasant, it also can make you less effective in tackling tasks you face. In a study of test-takers, those who fixated on worrisome thoughts performed worse than those who were distracted from their worries.

Everyone has beauty but not everyone sees it.

People Have Will Power

It is not that some people have will power and some do not. It is that some people are ready to change and others are not. Believe in yourself and change for betterment.

Need for Love

The need for love is filled by loving. The need for friendship is filled by first being a friend. The need for peace is filled by being peaceful. What am I saying here? I'm saying that in order to receive you should give. Return is natural and spiritual law of life and success. The more you give, then the more you will receive. But it's the transformation of self in the process of service that is of greatest benefit. We all want to transform into something bigger and better. Releasing what you have on behalf of others is a great way to spark transformation. You unleash your greatest self and you set yourself up for huge returns.

Don't Wait

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.

The Tempting Place

Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing in the tempting place.

Benjamin Franklin
He who cannot change the very fabric of his thought will never be able to change reality.

"kizuna311" a message from Ken Watanabe


We are not creatures of circumstance; we are creators of circumstance.

The Goal that's Afar

You are the person who has to decide. Whether you’ll do it or toss it aside; you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you’ll lead or will linger behind. Whether you’ll try for the goal that’s afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.

Edgar A. Guest

The Greatest Revolution

The greatest revolution in our generation is that of human beings, who by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.

Grow A Soul

Life is just a chance to grow a soul. And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

Beginning of Love

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

A Miracle

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize; a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Power of the Heart and the Soul

I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. We will be taught what we need to learn.

Melody Beattie

Three Stages of Truth

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Live the Life YOU have Imagined

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

A Single Heart

To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.


I want to live long enough see the day the people in this world put aside their differences and work hand in hand to achieve that state of acceptance of themselves and their surroundings, also known as PEACE.

Embrace a Unique Opportunity

He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed.

William James

Allow Others to Be

Today I will recognize my powerlessness over the thoughts, opinions, feelings and actions of others. I will work hard today to allow others to be who they are. I will be who I am. I will listen attentively, noting others’ perspectives calmly and appreciatively.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow - it empties today of strength.

Silently Affirm

Each day, silently affirm that you are the type of person with whom you would want to spend the rest of your life.

Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon absolute truth.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Renew Humanity

Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.

The Earth Does Not Belong to Man

The Earth does not belong to man; man belongs to Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

Chief Seattle

Grow Up in Peace

There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace.

You Can't Please Everyone

Realize that you can’t please everyone. In fact, nobody can. Sometimes you need to just let some people go. Realizing this will relieve you from a lot of unnecessary burden so that you can focus on the people that you can positively interact with.
There is always sunshine on dark gloomy days for all who wish to see it.

Beyond Our Wishes

Destiny grants us our wishes, but in its own way, in order to give us something beyond our wishes.

Power is Confidence

Power doesn't have to show off. Power is confident, self-assuring, self-starting and self-stopping, self-warming and self-justifying. When you have it, you know it.

Personal Reality

Our strengths are our tools, our personal reality. Our weaknesses are only what we are not.

Joe Batten

He Who Ceases to Grow

He who is silent is forgotten; he who does not advance falls back; he who stops is overwhelmed, out distanced, crushed; he who ceases to grow becomes smaller; he who leaves off, gives up; the condition of standing still is the beginning of the end.

Henri Frederic Amiel

A Human Being

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Albert Einstein

Continue to Climb

Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan. I will continue to hold you in my prayers.

Love and Hope

An act of love, a voluntary taking on oneself of some of the pain of the world, increases the courage and love and hope of all.

Dorothy Day

A Healed Memory

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

Lewis B. Smedes

Courage, Faith and Growth

Difficult situations often bring out qualities in us that otherwise might not have risen to the surface, such as courage, faith, and our need for one another. All of our experiences can help us to grow.

The Entire Lifetime

You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire lifetime.

Teach Me Anything

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.

Raise Your Consciousness to One of Acceptance

Suspend judgment. This world is laden with judgment, irresponsibility, and finger pointing. One judges another to feel less guilty about one’s own misgivings. Judgment energy is dense, dark, and heavy. On the other hand, unconditional acceptance is light, free, and accepting. Let go of judging and criticizing yourself and others. Everyone is on a different path, and some appear to be further ahead on their path than others. Neither path is better nor worse than another. Raise your consciousness to one of acceptance.

Precious Things

True wisdom lies in gathering the precious things out of each day as it goes by.

E. S. Bouton

Believe in Anything

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers, elders, or wise men. Believe only after careful observation and analysis, when you find that it agrees with reason, and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all. Then accept it and live up to it.

Key to a Happy Life

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more.

David Steindl-Rast

Make A Mistake

Don't argue for other people's weaknesses. Don't argue for your own. When you make a mistake, admit it, correct it, and learn from it--immediately.

Steven Covey
