Founder of Burton Lighting shares his deep motivation driving Burton Lighting into new innovative territory. His story of personal loss and growth is truly inspirational.
“Up until recently, my travels through the universe have been relatively calm and smooth. As a child, I was a total mamas boy and only child. I had a wonderful life growing up in the small town of Los Gatos, California. I played football, and drums and sang in the school choir. My parents loved me, and taught me to respect my elders and stay on a positive path.
But, of course it took a sudden, irreversible change in time, like death, to pop the soft, warm bubble I lived in, and set me on the path I am on now.
May 10th, 2011, I received the phone call that my mom had been killed in a car crash while traveling in Spain. I found myself lying on the cold damp floor of reality, hurting and lost. But what happened to me next was astounding, and the insight I soon gained changed the way I perceive life, love and the energy around me.
After that day, I started to notice and become extremely sensitive to the energy exchange between and among humans. Our willingness to horde it or give it away freely, the struggle and angst achieving it, and how far we will go to steal it from each other. I was fascinated and intrigued why no one ever told me about this. I had to know more. While searching for more answers I stumbled upon something even more grand… the meaning of life.
I believe that life defines the physical universe as one of pure energy, an energy that responds to how we think. Einstein shows that what we perceive as hard matter, is mostly empty space with a pattern of energy running through it. Quantum physics shows that when they break apart elementary particles and observe how they operate, the act of observation itself alters the results as if the pieces are influenced by the expectations/intentions of the observer.
The basic stuff of the universe is a kind of pure energy that is malleable to human intention, as though our intention causes our energy to flow out into the universe and affect other energy systems. My intention creates all the things that happen to me. It may be that the universe runs mechanistically as a basic operation, but then also subtly responds to the mental energy I project into it. What has become clear to me is that I can affect all things just by what I do with the energy that belongs to me, the part I can control.
The meaning of my life started to reveal itself. Human conflict is a shortage of and manipulation of energy, an unconscious competition that underlies all human conflict in the world. Rather than live a life stealing energy from others, I accepted that I had to learn how to create energy myself. When I have acquired enough energy, I am ready to consciously engage evolution, to start it flowing, to produce the coincidences that will lead me forward. Once I learn how to stop stealing, then I can learn to make enough to give to others. Creating and exchanging energy to others is my reason to exist. This energy comes in many forms, but always a vibration; whether it be love, compassion, happiness, or actual physical energy. I learned that searching outward for love or happiness was my mistake, and would leave me always searching. I can only be fulfilled from within, and once I am full I can radiate it out of my body and on to others.
From there, I found myself with an amazing opportunity to start a business. The company and the product, The Burton Bulb, are manifestations of what I understand from the universe. A physical witness to creating my own energy, and then giving it to you.
Please accept the gift of energy, and may it enlighten you to give to others. I feel destined, as if guided by some unexplained force, one that fills my life with a feeling of mystery and excitement; and I feel more alive. Something else is going on beneath my everyday life. I try to manifest this all the time. My experience is the evidence.”
