Inner peace, inner peace

What character repeats in 2 movies “inner peace, inner peace.. inner peace”?
If you answer Dracula, you’re wrong.
It is Master Shifu in Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2. Of course! (ah ah)

I like to watch movies for kids: they are funny, they have cute little characters and they always have at least one morale. In Kung Fu Panda, the message was that belief in one’s self is essential. It is not a revelation, but it’s always nice to be reminded of this fact especially when one feels low or depressed.

As in Kung Fu Panda 2, the philosophical messages are: “inner peace” and the power of the present. Two themes that are also timelessly valid. In a nutshell, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done with your past, what is foretold in your future, what matters is what you will do with right now. We have to let go of the past. Another good lesson, worth remembering and applying.

See, it’s not that stupid to watch animated movies for kids!!
Oh and the panda is named “Po”. It is  “hope” read backwards.
