Panda Peace August 2, 2011

In Kung Fu Panda, Po, the lovable panda voiced by Jack Black, discovers the secret ingredient to life: there is no secret, it’s up to you. In Kung Fu Panda 2, Po learns of inner peace and discovers its power. Inner peace comes from letting go of the past, accepting where you are now. That’s all you have is now.

I love how a kids’ movie incorporates this message. (No such thing as a kids’ movie, by the way, they are really made for us adults.)

Sitting in the movie theatre with my two cutie pies I feel like I have it, this inner peace. I am aware of the warmth of their skin touching mine.  Newly inspired and entertained we are smiling. Nothing else matters in this moment as the credits roll.

The trick is to take that inner peace, that power of the present moment and carry it to the next. I guess there is no trick, it’s just about being in that next moment.

Ahhhh, the journey, it’s never over is it?
