And The Day Came When The Risk To Remain Tight In A Bud Was More Painful Than The Risk It Took To Bloom.

And then one day, you bloom. You have to. A flower bud that does not bloom, can only die. There really is no middle ground.

And when all of your internal forces are expressing themselves in ways that delineate your pathway to blooming, you must listen to them… for if you do not, the consequences are the most undesirable.

The expansion from a bud to a bloom appears at the outset to solely be a work of beauty.

But if you explore the same phenomenon at the cellular level, the cells are working overtime, self-replicating at a rate that would be incomprehensible, were it not on the atomic level.

The quantum production necessary to take the small amount of information in a bud and expand that into a gorgeous flower is so vast as to be far beyond our comprehension.

In size ratio, it is parallel with looking at an automobile and expecting it to turn into a private jet within 48 hours. Where does all of the extra material come from? It is all being manufactured in the blossoming bud.

This is happening simultaneous to the blossom maintaining exquisite visual composure through the entire process. No construction signs, no mess. And all that remains is a stunning flower.

When we discover personal growth that is capable of propelling us beyond our current limitation, exponential growth is equally possible and attainable. It just requires belief in oneself and a determination of a higher magnitude. Here’s hoping your Wednesday is full of joyous temptations to grow!??

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!
