A Dream You Dream Alone Is Only A Dream. A Dream You Dream Together Is A Reality.

Have you ever awakened from a dream and felt that it was so real that for a brief moment, you are lost between two realities?

Dreams are a fascinating concept. At times they are a psychological playground for your subconscious. Other times when a daydream illuminates a pearl of wisdom, you discover that a magical moment has just been pulled out of the source of the universe and implanted in your mind for your personal exploitation.

One of my best friends knows that when he hits a technical roadblock on whatever he is programming, he knows that if he sleeps on it, the answer will be there for him in the morning or in the middle of the night and he quickly writes it down and implements the next day and discovers that it is truly the solution he could not find during his waking state in the prior day.

I think that dreams are a gift, they come from a realm that I do not believe any of us truly understand. And when a dream illuminates a potential future endeavor, experience, work of art or otherwise, it becomes as real as real can be in your own mind.

I love this particular quotation from John Lennon because he certainly exemplifies the gift of manifesting dreams from the subconscious and converting those into tangible realities that we all truly share. Take anyone of the great Beatles songs or Lennon songs and as soon as you think of it, you hear it in your mind because John has manifest his vision with his collaborators and made it a dream we share together.

I believe that everybody is a participant in the reception of inspiring dreams. The ones who are talented enough to take that dream and produce something of magnitude worthy of the dream are truly blessed. I have tried many times to manifest dreams that have come into my mind, some have been successful, others will remain a dream that I share with no one, but trying to produce something as good as what it was inside your mind I think is the hardest of the variables. It is almost as if the dream is an absolute that cannot be matched, it can only be approximated. Perhaps that is why Leonardo da Vinci said that a work of art is never completed, it is only abandoned.

I hope you have an outstanding Friday!😊

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
