Happy New Year

May the road you walk be a smooth one, may your troubles be few — if any, may the days and years that lie ahead be healthy, happy, and many, may you have friends in abundance, may the sun shine bright around you. May the world be a wonderful place to live, and may you always be surrounded by love.

To all my family and friends, near and far, you have my best wishes even if only in silence. You deserve everything that you’ve ever dreamed. I hope you have a joyful Happy New Year!

Give To Life

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

A Priceless Treasure

A gift may look ordinary but when given with love it becomes a priceless treasure.

Understand What You Need

Don't run away from your mistakes. Fix them, learn from them and understand what you need to do to get past them. This is the only formula of success.

Cleanse Your Soul

Love like there is no tomorrow, talk like there's no end, cry until you cleanse your soul and live your life as if it were your last day.

You're Alive for A Reason

Don't automatically assume that nobody cares. Every person matters to someone. You're alive for a reason.

Things Can Pass

Remember that some things can pass with time. There will be a tomorrow. There will be a next week. There will be a next month and perhaps by then, things will have changed for the better.

Your Attitude Towards What Happens

What you believe has more power than what you dream or wish or hope for. You become what you believe. Even though you cannot control everything that happens, you can control your attitude toward what happens. And in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

Have The Courage

May your dreams be larger than mountains and may you have the courage to scale their summits.

Things Get Too Tough

People are much stronger than they know; unfortunately they generally stop when things get too tough. The next time you find yourself in this situation try taking another step and then another, until you break through the challenge.

Everyone Is Going to Like You

Not everyone is going to like you, and that’s fine. If people want to spend time talking about you then that is their problem. You are perfect as you are. You shouldn’t need everyone to like you to have some form of self-esteem.

Embody the Energy of Your Soul

When you passionately and genuinely believe in something, it will change you. You will embody the energy of your passion, and the world will notice the light that you shine. When you believe in yourself, others will believe in you, too.

Be Open to All the Gifts

Be kind to all you meet. You never know who will come into your life and what purpose they will serve you. They could teach you a lesson, get you over an obstacle or inspire you not to give up. Be open to all the gifts that come into your life.  

The Tunnel Is Not An Illusion

The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion . . . the tunnel is.

Take Into Consideration . . .

The next time someone doesn’t live up to your expectations. Take into consideration someone once thought that about you.

In the End, It's Not the Years in Your Life That Count

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.

Being Joyful

Spread joy. Regardless of how you are feeling inside attempt to smile and be friendly to the people around you. Like generosity, being joyful helps us and the people around us feel better physically and emotionally.

Your Relationship With Gravity

The scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it; it cannot measure beauty, purpose, or love.

Who I Really Am

Whatever I want is what I am. In all my interactions and connections I would love to experience feelings of peace, love and happiness more than anything else. And so that is what I am. When I am connected to what I really want, I am able to experience the divinity within. Whenever a negative experience takes me away from the real me, I just need to remind myself of who I really am and what I really want. 

True Beauty Is . . .

True beauty is not outer appearance, it’s located in the heart and soul, reflected in the eyes.

Record Blessings

One way of keeping track of all of your blessings is to write them down a journal. Some like to record their blessings when they raise, first thing in the morning, others as they end their day. Whatever works for you, getting a notebook or even just a collection of papers writing down your blessings will be a more permanent reminder. In time, as you look back on all of your recorded blessings, you will get a sense of the many blessings in your life.

Allow Them The Space To Find Their Own Way

Honoring your partner's path and allow them the space to find their own way sends a clear message of respect. People need to work things out in their own manner and in their own time. If you try to help where help is not requested, you are signaling your lack of belief in your partner. If you back off and assume someone is strong and intelligent, strength and intelligence are what they will likely find.

Kindness is indeed contagious and when we make a commitment to be kind to ourselves and to others we can experience new heights of joy, happiness and enthusiasm for our lives.

If You Don't Like What You Say

If you don’t like what someone else says to you, you can walk away. But if you don’t like what you say to yourself, you can’t walk away. Therefore, if you’re going to be with yourself all the time, you might as well be nice to yourself.

One Question to Ask

There is only one question to ask yourself here: “What would you do if you were not afraid?” Think about it.

Nervous Energy

The universe is unfolding perfectly. I don’t have to disrupt it with nervous energy. I can relax and go with the flow.

Gratitude Is To Touch Heaven

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

Unlock The Door

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend; someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop; someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.

The Greatest Challenge

Dare to be YOU. This will probably be the greatest challenge in your life.

Positive Expectations

The smallest spark can start the largest fire, but the fire won't start until the spark is there. The sparks in your life are enthusiasm, excitement and positive expectations. With these almost anything is possible. Without them not much is likely.

The Way You Perceive The World

Your perception of your environment is influenced by your past experiences, your beliefs and expectations. This is why each person's perception of reality is different. By changing core beliefs, you can change the way you perceive the world around you.

No One Knows What They Accomplish

None of us knows what they accomplish and what they give to humanity. That is hidden from us, and should remain so. Sometimes we are allowed to see just a little of it, so we will not be discouraged. The effects of energy are mysterious in all realms.

Problems Can't Stop You

Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most of all, other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you.

Not Quite Good Enough

Sometimes good is better than perfect. To the extent that waiting on the one perfect moment means missing lots of very good moments, perfectionism is highly overrated. Be the best parent, spouse, friend, businessperson and human being that you can be. Strike a balance and keep moving rather than spending your life in a “not quite good enough” frame of mind.

It Won't Matter In 5 Years

Push through the pain, and conquer the obstacles. Regardless of what you think today, it won’t matter in 5 years from now. So Don’t Be Afraid!

When You Are Lacking

When you are genuine, and when you have something to stand for, you are doing great things. Just because others in the world may not recognize the greatness in doing the small things with great love, doesn’t mean that what you are doing isn't great.

Just do the things that you are capable of doing out of love. Remember, you may not have much now, but when you are willing to give when you are lacking, you will get back what you need exponentially.

Unwilling To Find A Solutions

One who has heart to do something seeks solutions. One who doesn’t have the heart to do something seeks excuses. Excuses are only for those people who are unwilling to find a solution.

Create A Family

Some people are born into wonderful families. Others have to find or create them. Being a member of a family is a priceless membership that we pay nothing for but love.

Making A Big Change

Don't expect change to be easy. No one ever promised that making a big change in your life would be easy or that overcoming obstacles would be a walk in the park. It's not supposed to be. Don't let opposition let you lose your confidence and adapt a negative attitude.

The Greatest Gift

One of the greatest gifts you can give to another person is kindness. If someone is in need, lend them a hand. Don’t feel you need to wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return.

One word frees us from the weight and pain of life and that word is love.

People Stay In Love Because of . . .

We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry, or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck. But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.

A Life Worth Living

You deserve to live a life worth living. Don't ever let anyone take that away from you.

Wayne Dyer- Ambition to Meaning

“Nobody needs to ask the question ‘what is my purpose?’ It will always be found in service. If you can one day put your attention on making life better for someone else. If you can focus on thinking like that that’s how God thinks. It’s an ancient concept but it’s still relevant.”

This passage is from the movie “The Shift,” with Dr. Wayne Dyer.

You Need The Conviction To Be Able To Think For Yourself

Lead a life in which you inspire and can inspire others, your heart has to be alive; it has to be filled with passion and enthusiasm. To achieve that, you need the courage to live true to yourself. Rather than borrowing from or imitating others, you need the conviction to be able to think for yourself and to take action out of your own sense of responsibility.

Know Before You Judge

Trust before you love, know before you judge, commit before you promise, forgive before you forget and appreciate before you regret.

Your Thoughts Are Changing Your Life

Change unhealthy self-talk. You may have been running negative messages in your head for a long time. But research shows that you can learn to shift your thoughts and that, over time, you can literally change your brain. Consider trying some techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, which works in part by looking at how changing your thoughts can change your life.

Nurture Your Spirit

Be open to new experiences. Nurture your spirit with nature, music, art or whatever sounds appealing.

Being Penalized

We don’t like being penalized for something we said or did. But we do it to people all the time. Someone does something that offends us and then, we base our opinion of them because of this for eternity. Life is a process of growing and evolving. Don’t penalize someone forever, see them with a fresh mind when you meet again.

Shine Brighter Than Anyone

You don’t need someone to confirm you’re special. All you need to do is believe it and when you do you’ll shine so brighter than anyone.

Every time you see a sunrise, your eyes witness a miracle and you. For this beautiful gift bestowed unto you be a person of more warmth and love. Go out into the world and spread goodness wherever you go.

Be A Positive Role Model

I created this video back in 2011. When I created this video I had no idea if anyone would see it. The message was simple be a role model and renew humanity. I took a look at this video on Youtube the other day and saw it had 5,786 views. I can't even begin imagine that many people watched it. To all those people that did - thank you very much for taking the time and viewing it. I'm sure you made a difference in someone's life. Peace and Happiness, Kaoru.

A Better Chance Of Repairing the Situation

If you lost your temper, it might feel good for a few minutes, but you’d regret it later on. Remember that underneath it all, you are kind and compassionate. If you react in a way that reflects your true nature, you’ll feel so much better about yourself, and you’ll stand a better chance of repairing the situation.

Where to Look

Don’t look for the place where the rainbow ends, but instead look for where it started.

You Will End Up Disappointed

You’ll end up disappointed if you believe people will do for you as you do for them. Not everyone has the same heart as you.

Building The Emotional Armor

Know that your pain and tears are not needless – they are building the emotional armor of your heart.


"I want you to forget everything you have learned in your whole life. This is the beginning of a new understanding, a new dream.

The dream you are living is your creation. It is your perception of reality that you can change at any time.

You have the power to create hell, and you have the power to create heaven. Why not dream a different dream? Why not use your mind, your imagination, and your emotions to dream heaven?

Just use your imagination and a tremendous thing will happen. Imagine that you have the ability to see the world with different eyes, whenever you choose. Each time you open your eyes, you see the world around you in a different way.

Close your eyes now, and then open them and look outside.

What you will see is love coming out of the trees, love coming out of the sky, love coming out of the light. You will perceive love from everything around you. This is the state of bliss. You perceive love directly from everything, including yourself and other humans. Even when humans are sad or angry, behind these feelings you can see that they are also sending love.

Using your imagination and your new eyes of perception, I want you to see yourself living a new life, a new dream, a life where you don’t need to justify your existence and you are free to be who you really are.

Imagine that you have permission to be happy and to really enjoy your life. Your life is free of conflict with yourself and with others.

Imagine living your life without fear of expressing your dreams. You know what you want, what you don’t want, and when you want it. You are free to change your life the way you really want to. You are not afraid to ask for what you need, to say yes or no to anything or anyone.

Imagine living your life without the fear of being judged by others. You no longer rule your behavior according to what others may think about you. You are no longer responsible for anyone’s opinion. You have no need to control anyone, and no one controls you, either.

Imagine living your life without judging others. You can easily forgive others and let go of any judgments that you have. You don’t have the need to be right, and you don’t need to make anyone else wrong. You respect yourself and everyone else, and they respect you in return.

Imagine living without the fear of loving and not being loved. You are no longer afraid to be rejected, and you don’t have the need to be accepted. You can say ―I love you with no shame or justification. You can walk in the world with your heart completely open, and not be afraid to be hurt.

Imagine living your life without being afraid to take a risk and to explore life. You are not afraid to lose anything. You are not afraid to be alive in the world, and you are not afraid to die.

Imagine that you love yourself just the way you are. You love your body just the way it is, and you love your emotions just the way they are. You know that you are perfect just as you are.”

- Don Miguel Ruiz - from The Four Agreements

Discovery of Yourself

The more you clear your view, the more real beauty you will see. Always new, always fresh and each new emotion is a new discovery of yourself.

A Person Of Integrity

Choosing your thoughts and actions on value rather than personal gain makes you a person of integrity. 


Reach within your soul for the strength to rise after falling. 

There Is Something Nice In Everyone

Everyone may not be nice but there is something nice in everyone – even if we don’t see it. Because people act differently with different people, which is why we shouldn't keep a fixed image for anyone.

The Blessings

Travel makes one grateful. You realize the blessings that fill your life.
