I love LOVE Kungfu Panda – the movie.
A clumsy big panda … with a little bit of belief work, and mentor support, becomes a Dragon Warrior and saves the world. He’s not like your typical Prince … tall, gorgeous, handsome, sword swishing man, trying to save the princess on his white horse. The best part about him … the big guy has a huge heart, forgiving, loving, goofy, funny, being there for his friends … so cute! Unsure about his abilities, but has the will power to learn, and change. How can anyone not love him?
Kungfu Panda 2 is pretty good for a sequel, you laugh the whole way through. I loved the bit about ‘Inner Peace’! hahaha considering I have spent years trying to achieve a balance of inner peace … and this dude put his head to it and got it lol. YES YES I know it’s a movie … but honestly these 2 movies are “wise”. They are not your typical animated fun movies … it actually embodies Zen teachings in such a subtle way.
A lot of it has to do with changing your belief systems, and having the courage and will power to see yourself the way you actually are and accepting new changes, loving yourself for who you are (even when you feel threatened by the ‘amazing’ talent around you), loving and accepting everyone around you just as they are. This is why we end up falling in love with Kungfu Panda … when he himself loves and accepts himself, how can we not?!
My hero! sigh! 😀
