Don’t let anyone bring you down today. Some people can’t handle your level. That’s OK. Just keep being you. There are people who can and will.

Have you found yourself surrounded by people who just don’t understand you? 

Do you find sometimes that you are struggling to get some of the most rudimentary ideas communicated in a way that others can potentially digest them? 

Humanity has become so fractionalized and specialized, that there are no longer readily defined categories that will easily encompass any one of us. We discover, as we mature, that there is a broad group of people with whom we must find a way to coexist. 

Some may see the world through our filters, and others may not, but ultimately our future must rely on the fact that we are capable of accepting the differences in others and allowing those differences to be allowable within our own spheres of influence. 

As the world tries to become more binary in its levels of acceptance and tolerance, we are all the more pressured to understand that there are still more commonalities between ourselves than disparities, and to watch for those levels of mutual understanding to mature in order to facilitate our own comfort in coexisting with others. 

You might be in a position where a large percentage do not necessarily understand, or relate to you. If that is the case, you are wise to become a little more circumspect during this period of time and enable yourself the room to explore other groups of people until such time as you find more with whom you feel simpatico. 

In this choice, you will negate the potential problems that you are having, and instead awaken to a brighter future that is more accepting of who you are and what you believe in. 

Don’t lose faith in your finding your place in the world. It will arise through your concerted efforts to connect with it. 

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!
