Bring love wherever you go. Shine light wherever it’s dark. Leave blessings wherever you’ve been. Be kind wherever you are.

Bring love wherever you go. Shine light wherever it’s dark. Leave blessings wherever you’ve been. Be kind wherever you are.


The choice to be a luminous being is always yours. 

Regardless of circumstance. Regardless of consequence.

In your determination to be such a person, you are inevitably going to encounter the opposite. When that happens, you will find yourself at a crossroad. You must either continue on your chosen path, or you will stray in favor of stimuli that causes you to discard your optimum mindset and leave some of your luminosity in your wake.

If you find that you have been distracted off of your course, you may quickly revert to the perspective you chose to embrace and work your way further down the road. It is not a perfect journey, but with practice, your direction will become more consistent; your perspective, more focused and your determination to maintain your course of action, more resolute.

You have the power within you to deliver on your internal promise to be exactly whom you believe yourself to be, independent of other variables that presume to encompass your sense of self.

When you walk through life with luminous intentions, you are a ray of light. To some you are just being yourself, and to others, you might be just the ray of sunshine that they were praying for.

You may never know which you are being, but at a minimum, you could potentially brighten someone’s day who truly needs you to do so.

And in the end, isn’t that the core meaning of wealth?

Happy Thursday!

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!
