I knew the moment had arrived for killing the past and coming back to life

Have you ever felt an event from your past would overshadow your future forever?

I think we all have. You continue your life, but there is a looming invisible shadow, eclipsing almost all of the new illumination working into your core existence. Little fissures of light break through your self-imposed doom and gloom. You work hard to prevent even those fissures from appearing because your belief is that you will always pay penance for that prior event.

To any sentient being, those fissures appear with ever increasing frequency, further reducing one’s ability to hide in this self-imposed shadow, until eventually it becomes obvious that the shadow was of our own making, and it become incumbent upon us to rectify our perspective and allow the next chapter to unfold.

The time that this personal evolution takes varies predicated upon the weight and girth of the shadow.

The full lyrics to this Pink Floyd song:

Where were you when I was burned and broken?

While the days slipped by from my window watching

And where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless?

‘Cause the things you say and the things you do surround me

While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words

Dying to believe in what you heard

I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time

While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted

Outside, the rain fell dark and slow

While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime

I took a heavenly ride through our silence

I knew the moment had arrived

For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence

I knew the waiting had begun

And headed straight into the shining sun

This is one of my favorite pieces of music. The vibration of the energy of this song has resonated so deeply within me as to make me understand how and why we as vibration and music as vibration are really one and the same.

I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Sunday!

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!
