ABOUT ENSON INOUE AND DESTINY FOREVER LLCAn accomplished fighter, businessman, and humanitarian, Enson Inoue founded DESTINY FOREVER LLC in 2011 with one clear vision in mind – to help those that are less fortunate.After some close encounters of his own, Enson quickly learned the healing and intimate nature that crystals give to the wearer. In Japanese tradition, if these bracelets break while worn – it is actually a good thing – as the healing and protective nature of the crystals are said to absorb the negative events or energy that would have otherwise harmed the person.He made them for close friends and family and was constantly asked where he “purchased” them from. This was something that resonated within him for a while – how could this opportunity be grasped to assist others. In light of these questions and the fact he could use funds to help people he decided to set up the business, uniting people under a common goal – compassion.DESTINY FOREVER LLC is operated on core values such as Honesty, Integrity, Family, helping others and Trust and this is an integral part of the way business is conducted.Enson’s efforts are currently focused on delivering essential supplies to the people in the North of Japan. He uses both personal funds and those raised through DESTINY FOREVER LLC to purchase such things as water, rice, toiletries, and other things that will help improve the quality of life for those affected by the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. To date, he has completed over 23 missions, and vows to continue them until the people of the North can continue living a “normal” life.Enson also works towards helping foster better relationships between groups of people involved in the welfare of animals, this includes his drives down to Taiji to meet with parties that have an interest in the activities around the treatment of dolphins there.To help him live the values and Yamatodamashii way, Enson regularly walks the Shikoku pilgrimage in the south of Japan. For him it is a way of gaining inner peace and perspective on the life we live, bringing patience, humbleness and gratitude among other things. Many people from around the world complete this pilgrimage and Enson is one pilgrim that returns to do it in order to exercise his mind, body and soul.
