The ones who are meant to be a part of your bigger mission are already connected with you through a shared vision for humanity. It won’t require much convincing or explanation. It just is and they already know the purpose surpasses everything finite.

Have you ever met someone and instantly felt the connection?

It is a rare experience, but unquestionably a vital component in the overall structure of our lives.

Have you ever stopped to wonder why both parties are almost instantly feeling kindred to one another?

Would you chalk that up to happenstance, or is it possible that something much larger has transpired?

Various cultures might explain what is taking place through different perspectives, and while none of us can be certain as to what is truly happening, I believe a majority of us would accept that a type of attractive energy is clearly present, operating and generating the feelings that create such a viable bond.

If it is a romantic relationship, we would call it chemistry. A combination of physical, spiritual, intellectual and emotional attraction that both parties would be feeling and from which all of the prerequisite energy would stem.

Other, nonromantic relationships also feel chemistry and that is equally viable in propelling those parties to sharing the types of information and perspectives that will further that bond, and increase the chemical dynamic between them.

We may feel that energy through complementary perspectives on key issues in life, or a shared core interest in a topic that is of vital importance to both parties. 

In other cases, it was a key incident that created such a bond, and as a result of both parties having experienced such an incident and prevailed together at the outset of that event, a strong bond is forged, as might be the case with soldiers who served together or players on the same team in a sporting endeavor.

Digging beneath the surface of such attractive forces reveals the truth about today’s aphorism. Depending upon your perspectives on destiny and fate, you might feel as if there were always a cause and reason for those of you to have found one another and forged such a deep bond. You would explain this, saying it was a relationship that was destine-bound to have been created. And perhaps that is true.

Conversely, if you feel you are completely in control of all variables in your life, you might see this as happenstance bringing opportunity that you and they capitalized upon, given the chance meeting and consequential desire to build such a relationship.

I believe that our ideological perspectives radiate through our actions, behaviors, and expressed perspectives in life. In the course of such energy being expended, we attract similar energy and cumulatively those connections expand exponentially as a direct consequence.

In the end, does it truly matter why and how, so long as it does transpire and that our lives are mutually enriched through the experience?

From that point forward, everything else is solely a benefit from which we all flourish.

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!
