Aloha! Yoroshiku onegai moushi agemasu. Pleasure is all mine to get to know you! Try reading this when you have plenty of time. If you do not like to read or write... best you give up on getting to know me. Laughing are you? Good.
When was the last time you came to the Big Island and dived into the graceful island ways? It is almost impossible for me to be more than a year away from Hawaii. I love the rainy side of the Big Island, the Windward side of Oahu and the people that maintain a set of the traditional values. We should go together a few times so that you get the feel of what I write here if you have not touched the center part of Hawaii.
If you haven't ever... Oh my... You should come swim with the sea turtles and study the Hawaiian ways. From someone firm, loving and non-commercial as Kumu Hula 'Iwalani Kalima, the Founder of Hula Hālau O Kou Lima Nani E. She was born and raised in Keaukaha Homestead in Hilo, Hawai'i. She humbles me and she makes me feel small in front of nature and yet be a part of it. Her hula roots stem back from her great-grandmother Kapeka, who was a chanter for Queen Lili’uokalani, and her grandfather Joseph Nohea Kalima Sr., who composed the famous mele “Hilo Hula”. ‘Iwalani began dancing at the age of eight, under the direction of Uncle George Lanakilakeikiahiali’i Na’ope. We can learn the names of the native plants and the stories that go with them. The last time I talked to her, she was finding ways to plant and grow hula related plants and flowers in a small island in Japan. What a Kumu! Having hula students in massive numbers as some is one thing, but to bring the plants to another island far away to bring the values and harmony... that is another level of a life as a Kumu. I met Iwalani Kalima (her photo is found above) through an odd event on Thanksgiving of 2000. I was admiring her uncle, Norman Kalima's, piano and voice at the Naniloa Volcanoes Resort Hotel. I was just passing by as a visitor to University of Hawaii Hilo Marine Biology Department. I wonder if some of you would recall, there used to be a white grand piano at the bar. I sat next to the piano listening to his exquisite piano which is clearly classic trained but with a Hawaiian under layer. It blew my mind listening to his piano and voice. It has the same emotional impact as listening to the ocean. Well, I did not realize who I was speaking to back then... I am slowly but surely getting to know this family. If we ever go to Hawaii together, we can stay at Aaron's Cottage, two blocks away from the Halau. Aaron's cottage is across the street from a Hawaiian charter school where kids start their day with a Hawaiian chant where there campus is waterfront property. Aaron's cottage is a song away from the sea turtles' eating ground. You really must come :)
So we have met. Google is a hippy flowing place. I adore the goat at Googleplex that some how compliment their Bloom Boxes. Speaking of Google... Larry and Gijira Brilliant gave me new breath in life. By chance, I ended up fundraising at Youssoupha Sidibe's Berkeley concert with Mr & Mrs Wavy Gravy for SEVA Foundation... Wavy Gravy's poetry was my genuine lecture Level 100 of 21st Century Philanthropy. I had no idea again, who I was getting to know back then... The concept of Google gives simple mechanics to the general mass to formulate new ways and new energy to give life in a desert with sufferings. It is the self developing tools to awareness and redefining of light. It is pure pleasure to come across you and so many that work on awareness here in Google. My participation in Google networking is the best thing that ever happened to me. I know you are smiling at this paragraph.
I particularly enjoy individuals and organizations with 21st century potentials that overlap conscious business. My Google profile "about" page is offered to all of my blessed encounters so that everyone has some idea of me. Please feel free to ask any questions at any depth after reading this page.
Some of you have breath taking track record of healthy and clean usage of funding. I take great joy in working together with individuals, organizations, NPO, and NGO that focus in umbrella causes that along with them would simultaneously solve smaller issues in efficiency. It is a more effective way of building wellness in our rather complex modern life.
My Longing for Global Minimum Wage --- We know that the global investors would never allow such a thing but it makes me happy to believe that one day regardless of where we live, our intelligence and effort will be compensated at a more reasonable scale and balance:) Human marginalization including women, children, migrant, immigrant, minority, and the acts of profiting from human trafficking, child trafficking, organ trafficking, modern day slavery are all unacceptable for me. I genuinely believe that anyone who profits from such activities in any extent deserve a life time imprisonment. There is no such thing as "second chance" to such abusive people. I worship the set of words, "Equal Existence Value"
As you might have guessed by now, you are safe to say that my mind works like a global environmental economist, a humanist, eco-feminist, anthropologist, with state-of-the-art media background, product developer's mentality rather than an investment consultant, a grant writer or an activist. I have enjoyed and graduated from purely maximizing profit and allowing banks to prosper without proper intelligence. I am also done with being dependent on repetitive grants with unreasonable guidelines that are often subject to sudden budget cuts that did not allow you a chance to work with local economy and profit sectors. I am also bored with competing, trapping, setting up, manipulating oppositions for the sake of power maintenance. I have no appreciation to win-lose competitions. There is only one source of energy and it is painful to split it up into small chunks... I am constantly seeking ways to modify perceptions so that I can see the common flow of things that appear different and unable to agree at first glance to eventually mutually benefit some cosmos amount, to try to understand, to give myself long term assessment tools rather than to rush a conclusion. I feel in life, I have too often thrown away big chunks of silver when I was hunting for gold. It is a sad social epidemic that we either choose leaders that represent money or law.
Why Live Such a Complicated Life? - My life has forced me to become a strategic negotiator for private sectors, religious organizations, foundations, and federations. Abusive power players always have two sides and one is always soft and it is up to those that organize philanthrocapitalism or conscious business to find that soft belly without alerting the power holder.. If we know how to approach or educate intellectual and emotional power players, to offer an attractive platform to mark a mile stone that gives life and colors enriching the history of human kinship, any level of philanthropy can be practiced. I never planned to become a negotiator nor did I select academic emphasis with such intention. I had no choice but to mold my life this way in order to give my coworkers, clients and family access to a wider spectrum of resources. Life has been painfully challenging but it has turned out to be meaningful and joyful.
What is Conscious Business? --- We all tried sacrificing integrity to get to financial resources but when we do that, our real voices tend to fade away into the background. Did you experience that? If you are staying at locally owned B&B or estates rather than to stay at huge chain hotels, you know very well the reasons behind that. My conclusion is be exceptionally careful in selecting residence, banks, business partners, capitalists and mentors. I was shocked to see so many to ignore anthropological/ environmental ethics and push away with profit seeking. The key words are "sustainable living". I stopped blaming on the racing driver (elected leader) sitting in the broken car (non-functioning nation). Each and every one of us are the parts to the car and we all have a role to play.
In some microscopic scale, I am learning on a daily from those that carefully incorporate philanthrocapitalism led by conscious leadership, adopting a higher purpose that transcends profit maximization without sacrificing integrity, and focus on delivering meaningfulness to all of its affiliations by aligning interests of organizations, market, and most importantly the community. It is my dearest hope to work with professionals that emphasize to environmental & health impact, social and anthropological understanding rather than to live the dinosaur life of maximizing profit.
I am not the only one that feels 2011 is a critical year, a pivot year for humanity. I look forward to exploring possibilities and making strikingly attractive progress with breath taking performance professionals and individuals. Yes, that is you. Out of some 4,000 contacts I have a year, you are hand selected to be in here. Some of you might have practiced serendipity to find me. By all means, let's explore the possibilities.
Je suis un pirate femme moderne déguiser en costumes d'affaires.
Mi piace mangiare gamma organico gratuita, non i pesci d'allevamento e verdure per lo più organici.
Jeg vil ikke eje et køretøj, medmindre den har en brint motor.
I am a Japanese nationality, born in Yukigaya, Ohta-ku, Tokyo, educated in UK, USA and Japan with a Buddhist, Shinto, Roman Catholic, Tibetan Buddhist, Konko and Soka Gakkai influence. I was born and raised by an educated family that financially failed and I do not affiliate well with that identity at this time being. I do not use my birth sir name today. My biological parents and I are rebuilding a polite relationship. After the Tsunami Earthquake 2011, I could not help but worry about their safety and health decline due to the fact that they live close to the epicenter. So they are just reentering my life right now. I hope to hold polite and meaningful friendship with them while we are still alive together on this planet. Although they have failed as parents in my eyes, they are still a friend and I look forward to learning and finding a healthy way to relate to each other with respectful boundaries. It seems relationships do not end... they just change, even if there is death involved.
My work is my life and my life is my work. I see any life form as value of equal existence and no life form any inferior to another. A child in my arm and a suffering child at a conflict zone, a human trafficked child sitting in an animal cage are equally important to me. That sense of oneness is extremely rare these days and it makes me sad and at times angry. To see one life as important as yours. It is minimum requirement as my friend, coworker, co-investor and close one to know what kind of life that is and to be able to live in that platform of integrity on a daily. I am very selective and careful as to who I allow into my life.
I'd Rather go Beach Cleaning than Party
I am sober 24 hours a day, 365 days of a year. Sitting in night clubs, conference, exhibitions, receptions and delivering speeches in front of an audience of talkers is boring for me. I am looking for DOers. Gather, plan and do! Do, do, and do! If you are carrying around a brief case, wearing leather shoes, hiding behind a computer desk in an air conditioned room more than a 100 days of a year, you may have some amazing statistics and theories, hypothesis and conclusions but likely we will not get along. I am expecting you to be a hands-on person, willing to come down to ground zero of your field and to know the real smells of life. If you are an activist of toxin free life and never been to radioactive or chemically degraded land, I ask that you do your footwork first before you consider talking to me on the same platform of life.
