Life is Too Short by Kaoru

Looking At the Bright Side Of Things . . .

Looking on the bright side of things is a strategy that has been used for centuries. Is the glass half empty of half full? Becoming an optimist is a personal decision and one that has profound ramifications on how we see the world. If we think positively about ourselves, about others, and about the world around us, the world often meets our expectations.

I Wish You Sunshine . . .

I wish you sunshine on your path and storms to season your journey. I wish you peace in the world in which you live. More I cannot wish you except perhaps love to make all the rest worthwhile.

Be Helpful

Be helpful. When you see a person without a smile, give them yours

Welcome New Opportunities

Be vulnerable. Allow yourself to feel, to be open and authentic. Tear down any emotional brick walls you have built around yourself and feel every exquisite emotion, both good and bad. This is real life. This is how you welcome new opportunities.

24 Golden Hours

Every morning you are handed 24 golden hours. They are one of the few things in this world that you get free of charge. If you had all the money in the world, you couldn’t buy an extra hour. What will you do with this priceless treasure? Remember, you must use it, as it is given only once. Once wasted you cannot get it back.

Steven Sharp Nelson - Moonlight - Electric Cello (Inspired by Beethoven)

Loving the Unlovable

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

Words and Actions

There's great beauty in simplicity. It's not plainness, however it is plain in the sense that words and actions are enacted with great royalty, full awareness and with so much significance. Simplicity takes us away from artificialities, it simply accepts and in that acceptance shows us grace and humility in every circumstance.
When your heart is open and clean, you will be humble.

Humility needs a good home to dwell in. When the mind is filled with negative feelings or biased ideas towards anyone, you cannot use your humility. So fill your mind with positive thoughts towards everyone. If you have negative thoughts towards anyone, make an attempt to remove them. Tell yourself that you don't like one particular aspect in that person and not the person himself. In this way you will help the other person also to bring about change.

- Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.


You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

- Mohandas K. Gandhi

In One Moment . . . By Kaoru

Free Hugs in Sondrio, Italy

Prime Purpose

"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them."

Dalai Lama

Defining Moments

Our lives is a series of defining moments, strung together by passing time. Surrender fully to this moment, because it is not the moment itself that defines us, but how we choose to live in it.

Live the Life YOU Want!

Live the life you want, not the one that others expect you to. People –– specifically your family and friends –– generally expect great things from you when they believe in your potential. And they should. But make sure to expect the same from yourself. Don’t simply be great because others want you to. Be great because YOU want to! Because you can’t see yourself living any other life than your own.

I Give Thanks . . .

Today, I give thanks from the depth of my grateful heart for all the blessings that has been bestowed upon me. I give thanks for the food which will grace my table, the roof which covers my head and the clothing I have to dress in. I give thanks for the privilege of living in a country which respects freedom and a person’s right to worship and speak as they choose. I give thanks for my family, friends and to everyone I meet on my path, who has touched my life with and helped me become a better person. But what I’m most grateful for is the gift to love one another as brothers and sisters, as equals without prejudice. This is what I’m most grateful for on this Thanksgiving Day! Peace and Happiness, to all My Brothers and Sister across the globe. Love and Light, Kaoru.

Help With Gratitude

No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.

Alfred North Whitehead

Why I Care . . . By Kaoru

Living A Good Life is the Best Way Possible to Convince People

Enough words and enough arguing. Just live by example and soon you’ll have people on your side when they see your results and how passionate you are. No need to "convince" them. Just show them that you are there, tell them how you got there, and they will start to realize that maybe you aren’t that crazy after all.

Life is Made Up of . . .

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions-the little soon forgotten charities of a kiss or
smile, a kind look, and a heartfelt compliment, and the countless infinitesimals of pleasurable and
genial feeling.

The Universe Owes You Nothing

The universe owes you nothing, you owe it to yourself to be the master of where your life ends up.

The Journey By Kaoru

Fear Can Be A Guiding Friend

Fear can be a guiding friend if you learn how to swallow it, and listen to it only when it serves its true purpose of warning you when you are in danger.

Power in Understand

Lie on a remote beach under the night sky, look at the curvature of the earth and gaze with wonder at the stars. Spend time appreciating and understanding just how small you really are. This will help you to know that you are not the center of the Universe, yet still a very important, miraculous part of it. There is power in understanding how small you really are.

What Will Your Attitude Be?

Attitude is essentially a blend of perceptions, thoughts and feelings about anyone or anything. It is influenced by memories, past experiences and beliefs. Although we may not notice, our attitude sits at the heart of all that we say and do. It's our attitude that reflects back to us in our relationships and it's our attitude that can rub off onto others. So, it makes obvious sense to hold a positive attitude at all times in all situations. Today, what will your attitude be?

Find People You Love

Find people you love . . . and I would say loving all the people around us regardless of whether we know them in person or not.

Being Open and Learning to Love

Being open and learning to love ourselves and each other with kindness, compassion and gratitude, as well as adopting healthy new habits that support our ability to be authentically happy on a core level, enables us to feel a sense of inner peace and well being. It also enables us to regain something that many of us have seemingly lost — our sense of "connection". Ultimately, that making the world a better place for all of us.

Please share this link to anyone who may be interested in my ebook. Many thanks for all your time and energy in supporting my work. Peace and Happiness, Kaoru.

We Are Only Human

Forgive yourself, your friends and your enemies. We are all only too human. All of us slip sometimes and make mistakes. Holding grudges and past hurts only serves to prevent us from enjoying life to the fullest.

The Path

Praise the path that brought you to this place in life.


People are more important than things. Relationships are more important than any material goods you may acquire on the road to success. Without the love and support of family and friends in life, material goods are not of much use. Setting your values and priorities can help you establish what's important.

Change Hurts

Change hurts. It makes people insecure, confused, and angry. People want things to be the same
as they've always been, because that makes life easier. But, if you're a leader, you can't let your
people hang on to the past.


If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 20 million people around the world.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

Define Your Choices

Define Your Choices. What do you need to do in order to clearly understand all the options you have? Think outside of the box for options that may not be obvious. "If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise."

What Next Action Step Can You Take

There is only one way to learn, and that is through action. Trying to learn without doing is like trying to lose weight by watching someone else exercise. It’s just not going to work. We are all fundamentally hands-on learners. Question: What would you like to learn? What next action step can you take?

Emotional Drains

Many people cave in to emotional drains, offering the popular excuse that "they just can't help it. It's time now that we learn both how and why to "help it" — or at least become open to the
fact that *we can.*

Push Through by Kaoru

Peace and Happiness

Peace and happiness are available in every moment. Peace is every step. We shall walk hand in
hand. There are no political solutions to spiritual problems. Remember: If the Creator put it there,
it is in the right place. The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.

Positive Role Models

Children need positive role models rather than critics.

Special by Kaoru

Wasted Time

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.

Sunday, November 6, 2011


Do not make assumptions unless you know the whole story. If in doubt, ask the person directly.

Things That Really Satisfy

Many of the things we desire are expensive. But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free - love, laughter and good relationships.

Saturday, November 5, 2011


Miracles rest not so much upon healing power coming suddenly near us from afar, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that for the moment our eyes can see and our ears can hear what has been there around us always.

Change the Image

Each one of us speaks, moves, thinks and feels in a different way, each according to the image of himself that he has built up over the years. In order to change our mode of action, we must change the image of ourselves that we carry within us.

Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.

- Helen Keller

You're A Winner

You're a winner. The tests of life are not meant to break you, but to make you.

Keep the Spirit

Failures may be so hurtful and disappointing, knowing you did your best in everything. But it
doesn't mean life must end there. Stand up and live. Keep the Spirit and confidence. Be strong and
Keep your faith by making the best out of it. For everything happens for a reason, a reason to
teach you and correct you and a reason to bring the strength in you.

Do Not Hate . . .

Whatever you give to life, it gives you back. Do not hate anybody. The hatred which comes out from you will somebody comeback to you. Love others. And Love will comeback to you.


Lonely People

People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.

Touch My Heart

Touch my heart with tenderness
And fill my cup with love,
Share my dreams as I share yours
And we'll reach the stars above.
Take my hand as I grow old,
And lead me when I'm blind,
I'll show you that I really care
True love is hard to find.
Touch my life and I'll touch yours
A little more each day,
And we can both find happiness
Somewhere along the way!
