Why horror?

Why do people watch horror movies for fun? I really cannot understand that. It's one of the mysteries of the world I guess.

Inner peace

There is this brilliant scene in Kung fu panda 2. In the beginning of the movie master Shifu catches a drop of water with his hands and releases it without blinking. Po, the panda is spell bound by the demonstration of inner peace the master is trying to achieve. He doesnt even know if he will be able to find it and through the movie you watch him and wonder if he ever would be able to. That doesn't seem to be his priority or his inclination. Right towards the end when his dear friend lays hurt, he finds what is within him and of all things catches a cannon ball with his hands.

He finds the difficult inner peace and saves himself. I know its a cartoon movie and often my fascination with these is questioned, but I adore that scene. It reminds me time and again that what I need is somewhere within me and I just have to concentrate to find that.

I don't want to catch a cannon ball as yet but I often hope and want to catch the elusive thoughts of mine and pen down something I find worthy and beautiful. Often not the fear of not being able to write or being saddled with the same recycled thoughts scare me and I don't even try. Maybe like Po I need to find that peaceful place within. Maybe I will and maybe then my mad world will change.

Opportunities

They say that the right ones don't come knocking twice. But looking at the million around I wonder which is actually right for me. Or is there even a need to look outside when I already am holding very single thing I can ever want right in my hand? I know not. The choice has left me choice less and I can just simulate possibilities and ponder - does it even make any sense?
