Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s OK. You’re here to live life, not to make everyone understand.

Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s OK. You’re here to live life, not to make everyone understand.

Does anyone truly have a sole purpose in life? 

Or is that a romantic notion, conjured for the purposes of creating fiction with depth and meaning? 

Do you think you have found your true calling in life? If so, how do you know? There are so many pieces to the overall puzzle of life, I believe it is very difficult to 100% ascertain exactly what our roles and responsibilities are, on a comprehensive scale. 

We are a continual work in progress, perpetually moving towards the variables that speak loudest to us, and towards those where our greatest potentials may be applied. 

Trying to get another person to fully understand all of the choices that you make, the paths you are willing to walk, and the destinations you are most desirous of arriving at, is a convoluted task at best. People are quick to transpose their morals, their goals, their risk assessment onto the choices that you make, and can quickly frown upon or discourage some of the best plans that you may conjure. 

I believe it is imperative for us to see those people as allies, in which we may bestow confidence and seek guidance. But it is equally important to retain our own autonomy over those decisions, such that we are continuously pursuing the prize that interests us the most. 

The opportunity to live in this three-dimensional world, experiencing so many incredibly magical feelings, emotions, and sensations is never to be dismissed as old hand. Instead, recognizing the power and majesty of this experience, should galvanize each and everyone of us to dig deeper within our own personal resources, in order that we might truly live up to those experiences that call out to us the loudest. 

It is only in these pursuits that we have our greatest opportunity to emerge as the whole human being we are working daily to become. 

Never make excuses for the choices or the path that you are taking, for others will probably not understand, nor acknowledge your excuses anyway. 

Happy Wednesday!

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!
