When people describe you, do they recognize you for your internal or your external beauty?

When people describe you, do they recognize you for your internal or your external beauty?

We are many times, caught up in the maelstrom of working to achieve, succeed, acquire, and dominate. In the course of this behavior, it is quite easy to lose sight of life‘s greatest treasures.

When you meet someone who exemplifies the qualities that are intrinsically so exquisitely beautiful, you are quickly reminded that you are encountering some of life‘s greatest treasures.

If you are aware and awake, you will see these qualities in others who are displaying them, and consciously or subconsciously, you will find yourself gravitating to them for exactly these reasons.

There is such a strong magnetism to being around someone who has their values intact and their deeper priorities established. When we experience this in another person, there is a magnetic warmth that is inescapable, and which drives us ever closer, in ways that we might not expect.

Developing an internal beauty is a life journey. It is never truly fully accomplished, but entirely a work in progress.

In the course of our determination to create these qualities within ourselves, we study how others have made us feel, and we adjust aspects of ourselves, such that we might be capable of making others feel as warmly about us, as we felt about those who taught us the skills in the first place.

At first blush, this might seem incidental and potentially inconsequential. The reality is that these qualities are the qualities that ultimately endear us to others, and in the course of being endeared to another human being, we are ultimately adding to our immortality, in the sense of how we will be remembered long after we have left our physical corpuscle in this three-dimensional world.

I believe it is a necessary prerequisite to invest a percentage of every single week in the development of these qualities, and to ultimately prioritize your time spent so that as you age, and as your life changes, your heart continues to blossom in every possible way, and shares your inner beauty with all who are capable of seeing it.

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!
