What you are looking for is not out there. It is in you.

What if you have always had the power inside of you, but you didn’t believe it?

From as early as the Greek and Roman myths through the Wizard of Oz and Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, to contemporary literature, for thousands of years, authors have been teaching us that the power is within, and yet, the majority of people do not grasp the concept, and most certainly do not leverage it to their greater benefit when required. 

Why do you suppose that is? 

If there is a devout belief system that some form of supreme being is the repository of your dreams and benefactor of your life experiences, is it possible that you might be less focused on trying to make your own destiny come to fruition? 

If you were to believe that it is solely up to a supreme being to make your desired outcomes come to fruition, would you be more motivated to dig deep within to find the answers or would you be searching externally for an answer to your prayers? 

None of what I am stating is in contradiction to scriptures, which basically state that God only helps those who help themselves. 

Given that even in a devout belief system, there is still a strong expectation that the individual must take an active role in their destiny, when we are channeling the powers of the universe or marshaling our own internal strengths and capabilities, we are collectively leveraging all of the resources that we believe are possible, to accentuate or better our current set of circumstances. 

Each of these are cause for our internal growth, and give way to strengthening the internal resolve that carries us through the toughest moments in life. 

When we are capable of awakening to the greater resource that we have internally, our power grows exponentially, for our understanding of how to tap into that power is awakened…. no different than Dorothy, clicking her heels together, and wishing that she were home. 

Happy Monday!

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!
