A Lesson From Remy!
I just returned from seeing the delightful Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille. While the animation in any Pixar film is awesome craftmanship, it is always the storytelling coming from this creative powerhouse that is most compelling. But what struck me so strongly about this particular film is its message about Conscious Creation. Here is a little rat, Remy, that yearns to be a great chef–a great chef in the greater human world. Through his intense focus and intention, his belief in himself, his passion for his calling and his trust that it would happen , this little creature finds a way to make his dream come true…regardless of how improbable or absurd it would seem. While the story is obviously just a "tail," it is an inspiration for children and a reminder to adults that there is little out of the realm of possibility if we keep our focus positive and learn how to apply the 25 Guiding Universal Principals on our behalf. Hats off to Remy of Ratatouille! He’s the smallest Conscious Creator on film!
