I love discovering spirit in all shapes and forms and sharing about it through stories from real life.

Time and taking what’s yours

The other day I was talking with one of my friends about space issues. Outer space vs. inner space. I shared about how my struggle with finding a sacred space all to myself in our tiny condo led me to the sacred space within my own heart and spirit. It completely shifted how I show…

Through persistence comes strength – 継続は力なり

During my first year in Japan, back in 1992, a dear friend taught me a Japanese saying. He wrote it on a piece of paper and tacked it to his wall. The saying was short and easy, and I’ve never forgotten it. I remember his handwriting, the paper, and even the color of the wall.…

Sleep Disturbances and the Day After

Living with someone who has Alzheimer’s means, I sometimes don’t get a full night of sleep. My father-in-law, or Otosan as I call him, is usually a good sleeper. Most of our problems at night center around who is in the bathroom and who is waiting to get in. Unfortunately, a few nights ago, Otosan had…

I get out nearly every day and walk along the river near my home in Hachioji. I can count on seeing egrets, crows, caterpillars, butterflies, beetles, spiders and if I am lucky, a few feral cats. I got to pay tribute to one of those cats in   Goodness Abounds: 365 True Stories of Loving Kindness, a…

Lessons from Beetle via Cockroach

Not every animal, insect or plant has a message for me. And, I get that sometimes I might be trying to read meaning out of a chance meeting and it might not mean anything special at all. Even so, I’m quite certain I recently received some interesting messages or lessons from Beetle via Cockroach. I…

I infuse by business with loving thoughts. | A message brought to you with love, light and blessings from Marci Kobayashi at marcikobayashi.com

I infuse my business with loving thoughts

I didn’t always infuse my business with loving thoughts. I don’t like to admit it, but over the years, most of my thoughts about my business were judgmental and overly critical. I would never treat another person, animal or plant this way. I don’t even treat my home or any of the objects in it…

We’ve all experienced sudden insights that radically shift our way of being. Those shiny ah-ha moments when it all makes sense. They become touchstone moments we treasure for years. Though I love those shiny moments, my insights or new ways of thinking and being often take days to percolate to the surface and stay. A…
