Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hid the madness.

Some call it divine inspiration. Others call it connecting to source. And yet others would describe it as marching to the beat of a different drummer.

When we are forced (as a result of society) to behave as one cog in a much bigger wheel, there are many people who do not want to become a character in the Under City in a Fritz Lang’s Metropolis world. (See below.)

We feel an overwhelming desire to strike out of the mold and make our own way through the wilderness, creating any pathway that takes us in a direction that may only make sense to ourselves.

This internal desire is so overwhelming, it becomes the overall driving force in a person’s life.

I believe that George Bernard Shaw said it best:

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Society is none too happy with people that do not conform. They create problems. They sow the seeds of discontent. They stand apart and are often times subject to ridicule.

It is not always the wise choice in life to engage in pathways that are disparate, but life is so short and it is so precious that every day you spend on a path that does not make sense in your life, is one less day that you have to be on the path that does make sense.

Don’t hide the innermadness, embrace it.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, here is a scene from the Under City in Metropolis:

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!
