When you like a flower, you just pluck it. But when you love a flower, you water it daily.

The subtleties between loving and liking are often times blended.

Finding the distinction within ourselves gives us fortitude to move forward with complete confidence that we are 100% in tune with our internal desire.

Collecting trinkets is the pastime of a smaller mind, while finding the time to stimulate others can be far more fulfilling. No different than planting flowers seeds and watching them bloom.

There is nothing tangible in the pursuit, only the warmth of knowing you have touched another soul in a unique way. You cannot cash it in at the bank. You cannot store it away for a rainy day. You can only hold the internal solace that perhaps on some level you made a difference.

And on the rare occasions when you witness the difference that you were party to stimulating, you can quietly celebrate that perhaps your time on planet Earth is coming to greater fruition.

Happy Tuesday😊

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!
