As I watch our nation polarize ever more separatist, I ask myself what piece of the puzzle could I best supply to arm the current generations to thrive long after I am gone?

We are continually brainstorming as to how to use Sizzle and the corresponding social network we are building on top of Sizzle called FreQues (short for Frequencies) into instruments of positive change.

It sounds moral and necessary at the declaration of the intent, but as Buckminster Fuller would say, “God is in the details.” How do you go about doing this? What is appropriate? What is mandatory? How can we best influence change for the better?
How can our knowledge help influence both camps?

In trying times like these, our questions merit deep consideration, for if they are executed properly, we would contribute to a global enlightenment. So it strikes us that bottling valuable knowledge and making it absolutely free to anyone is one of the most useful of all of the resources that we could help to produce.

On a personal level, I think each of us are capable of continuing to spread enlightenment through deeds, actions, ethics and behavior. If humanity has any chance at survival, I think it has to start with enlightenment.

When I was young, these were some of the first lyrics that gave me a clue that life is not all fairytales. So I am closing out today with Crosby Stills Nash and Young:

You who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good-bye.
Teach your children well,
Their father’s hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick, the one you’ll know by.
Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you.

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!
