The universe is not short on wake up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button.

The universe is not short on wake up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button.


Do you pay attention when the universe gives us signals? 

It is convenient to stay in a state of denial for a problem that appears so large,  as to render itself, at face value, as being unsolvable, but that truly is not the case.

There are solutions at hand that will combat some of the biggest problems we are facing, and I have been fortunate enough to meet with, and collaborate with some of the brilliant scientists, who have contemplated these issues, and formulated working solutions that are viable and attainable within our lifetimes. 

Part of the biggest problem is the large volume of ignorance surrounding this topic. The mass ignorance is further propelled by profit motives or greed motives that find their power base through the continuous distribution of false materials, false perspectives, false science.

The problem is not fully supported by science deniers, it is also propelled by many who believe the problem to be true, but are not willing to make personal sacrifices in their life in order to help support what will be necessary to preclude these events from happening. 

Part of the issue lies in the finger-pointing, and the need to assign blame for the problems at hand. If everyone were willing to look at the core facts, through rational and intelligent filters, the harsh perspectives that come from both sides of this issue might fade backwards and thereby empower a winning solution, that is more main stream, to evolve.

Our denial, notwithstanding,  Mother Nature is more than happy to continuously deliver reminders that are impossible to ignore. Witness the record heat that is blanketing the globe at this point in time. With these issues in consideration, there are vast territories of land around the planet that will become flood zones as the water levels rise.  

The insurance companies are fully aware of these horrific calamities on the horizon, just ask any homeowner or business owner within territories that are projected floodplains whether or not they can get insurance on their property any longer.

The fishing industry is fully aware of these calamities, ask them how their industry is changing and you’ll get a very harsh response… and so on.

As individuals, we can either stay in denial, and keep hitting the snooze button or we can be proactive and start moving now.

Happy Friday!

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!
