Sometimes as we are enshrouded by the world of capitalism and material items, it becomes so easy to forget the wealth that sits deep within.

Everyone on the planet is suffering right now. In a full spectrum of fears and apprehensions, people are navigating their way through a quagmire of difficulties.

And we have within ourselves some of the most potent, most valuable resources to share, if we are only conscious enough to remember to employ them.

Do you remember the last time somebody complimented you on something? I’m certain that you do…and that complement warmed something deep within you.

The value of a kind word that comes from the heart is inestimable in terms of the resonance it may carry with the receiver.

In times of trouble, remembering to bring your deeper values into action could not be any more important. People are starving. Hoping. Praying. Looking for that one kernel to hang onto. And it costs you so little to dig within yourself and find something warm to share with another person.

On the other hand, there are some of us (me) who take it upon themselves to cut their own hair during this crisis, then look in the mirror and wonder what the heck you just did! (it seemed like a good idea before I started?) I’m not sure there’s going to be any praise coming for this haircut for quite some time??? but if the Marines are recruiting, I certainly have the right hairstyle now!

Happy Saturday❤️

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!
