I thought of you today But that is nothing new I thought about you yesterday And days before that too.

I thought of you today

But that is nothing new

I thought about you yesterday

And days before that too.

I think of you in silence

I often speak your name

All I have are memories

And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is a keepsake

From which I’ll never part

God has you in His arms

I have you in my heart.


In the end, that’s all we are.

And for all intent and purposes, that’s all we have ever been.

How do you make your resonance brilliant?

There are thousands of ways.

It starts, in part, with a clear mind, and a clean heart that is dedicated to pursuing variables that are good for all parties with whom you are in contact. From that vantage, everyone is a potential friend or ally until they prove themselves to be otherwise. Every incidental person is a human being deserving of your respect. Every loved one in your life is a treasure that must be reminded regularly how much you appreciate them in your life.

I read this aphorism and my father came immediately to mind. This could not be more accurate about that feeling of lost loved ones. His loss was tremendous for me, and for many others, because his resonance was pure, his intentions, honest, and his approach, impeccable.

In our finite journey on this 3D world of experiences, I believe our highest objective must be achieving resonance in others. To earn that place in their mind, in which you will live, long past the days you walk on Earth. If you are taking the time to be present, and appreciative of those who matter to you, you are serving as high a purpose as one might possibly serve.

And in the end, isn’t that all that really mattered? People may remember you for accomplishments or accrual of material goods, but the deepest and most heartfelt of memories are those that remember you for how you touched their heart, how you made them feel in your presence, how you treated them, cared about them and nurtured them in your own unique way.

Here’s to those who have come before us, who helped shape us into whom we are becoming and whose resonance will live always in our hearts.

Happy Tuesday!

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!
