The concept of the Force referenced in the Star Wars saga is not based on myth but fact. In 1600 Galileo used his telescope to detect that the Cosmos, the Sun and its planets are one enormous electromagnetic field of Force, subject to the laws of gravity and each part acts in a reciprocal manner on the others. The shifting of these planets ultimately causes powerful changes in the field of Force. The Planets are a dynamic part of the electromagnetic field in which we, as humans exist as part of the Universe. Their constantly altering angular position to the Earth and to each other correlates with distinct changes in human and cosmic affairs. For example the Moon affects the Tides and us too because we are approximately 70%f water. The word “lunatic” is derived from the fact that those who study Criminology have discovered that at the last phase of the Full Moon there is an increase in crime, uncontrollable urges occur in humans during this time. Therefore the reality is that as humans we respond to the movement of the planets, the affects of the Force as a result of their movement. This doesn’t mean that the Planets rule our destinies. We respond to the movement of the Planets and the shifts in the electromagnetic field in which we co-exist. Drastic shifts would be considered a “disturbance in the Force”. Hence Astrology is able to document and follow movements of the Planets and how they affect each person, their lives and possible outcomes based on possible choices.
Throughout the Star Wars saga Obi Wan Kenobi repeatedly tells Luke to “use the force Luke, use the force!” likewise Darth Vader tells Luke to give in to the power of the force and allow his anger to wage. These scenarios demonstrate that the Force in and of itself can be used for Good or Evil, which is exactly true. Individuals who are proficient in the ancient practice of martial arts, in particular Wing Chun, learn how to harness and control the Force - watch the movie IP Man to get a really good understanding of this in practice. People who are “Sensitives”, meditate, practice Reiki and other such healing modalities are close to the Force and interact with it on a deep level. In order to be proficient at using this energy a person must learn how to be centered with inner peace and focus. Bottom line each person has free will in whether or not they are able interact with the Force in a positive way or let it control them, like a leaf blowing in the wind. It is powerful and each person who chooses to tap into and use this Universal energy must understand they have a hand in their destiny, you are a pawn only as long as you want to be, you have free will and how you choose to exercise that free will determines the outcome of one’s existence. For every act there is a reaction. For every deed there is a consequence. Simple Cause and Affect. This is how Karma is created.
Use the Force for Good.
