Thoughtful Thursdays 1

Topic: Inner Peace

This idea was in the movie Kung Fu Panda 2. Shi Fu tells Po that the only way he can become a master is to find inner peace. In other words, Po would only accomplish great feats if he had peace within himself. Inner peace is a concept that may or may not exist. Is is real to find peace within yourself? Po achieved peace by learning who he truly was at the present instead of clinging to the pains from the past. To be honest, I think it would be great if inner peace was real. To be able to find balance within yourself sounds like a nice solution to many problems. Even when you are faced with something in the present that is tied to your past, if you have inner peace wouldn't it be true that you wouldn't be stressed out or in pain? Or is inner peace the knowledge that things from the past will pop up time after time during the present? Maybe inner peace is simply accepting the way things are and the way you are. Inner peace sounds like a tricky thing, but maybe if you believe it is possible, you will be able to achieve it.
