"The Tao Of Kung Fu"

Even though I follow Judeo/Christian beliefs, I can also appreciate the benefits of Zen concepts applied to everyday living. The TV series "Kung Fu" came at a point when I seriously needed to make some sense of certain things in the world, and the precepts approached in the series filled a void in my psyche. As shallow as it might sound, the Kung Fu series to me was one of those milestone markers in your life that changes it forever. It is a mere TV show, but it's not really different than being profoundly moved by a novel, a piece of music, or a work of art. My soul will always belong to God and what the Bible teaches and I won't compromise that, but some of the Zen/Tao teachings help me apply my Christian beliefs to the corporeal world that we live in as humans, until the spirit world will come to take me one day.

I recently found an excellent blog that is reviewing the series here:
