We had a really fun really full weekend. We took the kids to the Santa Claus parade on Saturday and then we took them to "Seussical" performed by the Western Canada Theatre. If you ever have the chance to see this production I highly recommend it.
It is a musical based on the works of Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss wrote 48 books this musical manages to wrap 18 of them up in the same story line. It is wonderful and witty and the kids were glued to their seats the whole 3 hours.
Sr. Seuss used his stories not only as art, but he used his works as political and social commentary. This musical spoke to the good Drs. ideas that "a person is a person no matter how small." (Horton Hear a Who) and managed to put forward the idea that our thoughts create our realities. (Oh the Thinks you can Think) all while keeping kids both children and adults entertained. It was wonderful.
Sunday morning we took the kids skating for a while and then Paul and I were off to an afternoon with Deepak Chopra. Yes you read that right. Deepak came to our little town and spoke to a group of three thousand people a sold out show. He was wonderful.
He opened with some idea's from quantum physics and in the end wrapped it all around to the idea that we are world on the verge of a metamorphosis. He talked about the change of consciousness that is occurring the world today. That we create our world and our reality with our thoughts.
If we all choose to be conscious and present we can change the world. I had this moment during the lecture that I realized that I had been give the same lecture twice in the same weekend. I found it amazing that Dr. Seuss and Dr. Deepak Chopra are delivering the same message in there own ways.
"Oh the thinks you can think...."
