May the forth be with you.
Today is May 4th
Some call this day ‘Starwars’ day.
It does not need much imagination to see why this is... If, that is you have ever seen any of the ‘Starwars’ films. Of which by now there are many.
If so, you will have heard the phrase “May the force be with you” said many a time to many a character in many situations in every single one of those epic episodes of the everlasting war against ‘good’ and ‘evil’.
What is this force that bestows such power to Yoda and all who have chosen to follow the path of the Jedi.
This may help to show you what this force is...
“Your focus determines your reality."
You have the ability to change your own reality by the force of your mind.
In Episode IV, Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke Skywalker: "The force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together." ". . . a Jedi can feel the force flowing through him. It [partially] controls your actions, but it also obeys your commands."
I recall the old adage here “As a man thinketh, so he is”
The aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he, (Proverbs 23:7)" not only embraces the whole of a man's being but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life.
Action follows thought.
Forget the biblical reference perhaps, but remember the sentiments.
The very word GOD can for some people place an impenetrable shield around the very thing that is so crucial to understanding what, NOT who this force is.
As can the other words or titles we as humans give to this force. Forcing prejudices’ to come between us as a race or culture... Our God being the ‘only one true God’.
I am a Master myself, not a Jedi master I hasten to add. A Reiki master. I am also a Black Belt.
In layman's terms, Reiki is a form of healing.
It has been said that there "is no evidence that clinical reiki's effects are due to anything other than suggestion".
The academics are looking for tangible evidence of the intangible., claiming that such a force is non-existent because it can not be seen or measured... This may be the case. However, it’s effects can be felt and experienced.
I mention Martial arts because all martial arts utilize this life force or chi or ki as it is called in some cultures to achieve some truly astounding feats of strength and endurance once the exponent learns how to harness and use this force.
The force is in itself neither good nor evil it is just a force. It is the intention behind the application of this force which determines the effect. For Good or Bad. For the betterment of health or to cause harm and even death.
I have made a study of this life force for over half a century now and for me, it is a reality. I have experienced its power personally for good and for bad. I see it working in my daily life, I experience it every moment... As do we all! Irrespective of whether we choose to believe it not. It is there.
It interpenetrates and surrounds all life. It is all-encompassing, omnipresent, all-pervasive, and invasive. You can never be apart from it... nor it from you.
It is the God particle, the ‘Higgs boson’ the all elusive force.
If ever there was poetry my friends it is THIS.
May 4th is with you
May the Force be with you.
