The Secret Life of Bees

This weekend brought a lovely film that demonstrated the power of both love and Conscious Creation. The rapidly growing-up Dakota Fanning plays a 14-year-old living in a lonely household with an abusive and uncaring father after an early family tragedy. Her one desire is to have someone to love her as her mother would have done had she been alive. By the end of this charming film, she had more "mothers" than she can count, all loving her profoundly. It is through the power of her passionate desire for love that she indeed creates it. This film, The Secret Life of Bees, with Queen Latifa as the beekeeper to whom Fanning flees, is well worth the time. 

Returning to active duty

Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been AWOL for a few weeks. I’ve been off
doing book tours of Colorado, Santa Barbara and Southern
California, appearing on TV and guesting on radio shows–in other
words, out spreading the word about Conscious Creation. I’m pleased to
be back!I just read about an upcoming movie that I’m looking forward to
knowing more about. It’s called "Happy-Go-Lucky" which premiered at the
Berliln Film Festival. It’s said to be about "the power of positive
thinking." It sounds right up our alley! "Happy-Go-Lucky" is by
British filmaker Mike Leigh (Vera Drake), who says the film is about a
character who is "special in a sense that she has this positive
energy." Leigh remarked that he wanted to counter a trend toward
pessimism and show that "there are in the world people being–despite
everything that’s happening–positive and getting on with it. It is
important that we confront ourselves with the realities of  life
and the negatives…but it’s equally important that we take life and
celebrate it where and how we can," he said at a news conference.  I
find it wonderful that such concepts of spirituality and positive
thinking are beginning to show up all over the media–whether films, TV
or radio! Let’s support those filmmakers and TV producers!

Rush to see this spiritual film!

If you haven’t seen "August Rush", the film with Keri Russell, Jonathan
Rhys Myers, Robin Williams and the adorable Freddie Hightower, it is a
must! This is a highly spiritual film about an orphaned youngster who
hears music everywhere and believes that the music will lead him to his
birth parents. He holds that vision throughout his travels as the
11-year-old becomes a musical prodigy, despite others who scoff at his
firm belief. It is a charming film, one of many mainstream movies that
are beginning to embrace such spiritual messages.  A great holiday
feel-good movie.

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!
