You Cannot Be Lonely If You Like The Person You Are Alone With.

The protracted isolation of Covid has been illuminating in so many ways. Obviously, deprivation from things that one loves and appreciates always has a propensity to increase one’s appreciation of them all the more. And increase the longing for them.

That said, unforeseen circumstances always have the opportunity to help one dig deeper within, searching for values, truth, courage and sometimes just something unique to do!

If one is able to view every circumstance as a opportunity, one is then capable of converting circumstance into new potential. Learning, exploring, and introspection.

Sometimes being in circumstances which one is unable to change by oneself, can be the galvanizing factor in a new catharsis. An internal evolution, capable of massive personal change.

We are the first society that has a majority of global knowledge at one’s fingertips. The power of just this one detail is of unimaginable influence on the evolution of our species. So the prospect of learning almost anything is now instantaneous.

And failing any external stimuli whatsoever, one is always able to hit a quiet state of mind and dig deeper into the variables in one’s life with a new prioritization in mind.

Back on the treadmill, we commence on yet another week. My hopes for you are that it is joyous, stimulating and thought-provoking. 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!
