All that is gold does not glitter. Not all those who wander are lost.

One of the greatest advantages of time, is perspective. As time passes, preconceived notions as to what is valuable, what is worth spending one’s time on, which battles are worth fighting, which causes require a champion and which personal choices are most appropriate to create proper equilibrium in one’s life, all take different ratios of value as one ages.

I think we are more able to see clearly through the filter of time. Some of the urgency that was more heavily weighted at the moment of decision has been lifted, so that in retrospect, one is able to more clearly decide as to whether one’s choices continue to be viable or erroneous.

Perspective facilitates new filters through which choices may be made as one matures through the maze of life.

And as one matures, one’s prioritization changes predicated upon various circumstances that earlier decisions have ultimately given birth to in their wake.

All that is gold does not glitter. Much of the superficial qualities of wealth do not begin to equal the deeper wealth of contentment, satisfaction, spirituality and self realization.

And as one finds oneself wandering through life, the journey proves to be a great experience from which true wealth is recognized in whatever form it manifests. To an outsider looking in, it might look like a journey with no form, but from the inside looking out, that journey could be jampacked with lessons, experiences, emotions and newfound knowledge.

The journey should ultimately build a base of strength that supports one’s life decisions with ever greater ease and simplicity. The journey should be a path to enlightenment as to who one truly is and who one truly wishes to become.

Wishing you a safe journey on your path to building your own internal revelations✨✨✨

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!
