HOW STAR WARS HELPED ME UNDERSTAND GOD.


THE FORCE BE WITH YOU

" The Force " in Star Wars was an energy field that connected all living things in the galaxy. The Living Force was an aspect of the force. It was fed from the energy of living things and was distinct from the Cosmic Force.

Qui-Gon Jinn (a teacher) was considered a student of the Living Force and stressed its importance to his Padawan (a student),( Obi-Wan-Kenobi ), telling him the value of being mindful and aware of a close connection with the Living Force.

The Living Force represented the energies of all living things, and those energies were fed into the Cosmic Force that bound the galaxy together. The Living Force communicated to individuals through the midi-chlorians, who resided in all living things in various amounts. The degree of concentration of midi-chlorians decided the level of power and understanding and connection with the Living Force. The Power of the Force could be used by individuals who were sensitive to it, which was determined by the level of power that could be tapped through the midi-chlorians .

According to legend, midi-chlorians originated on a planet in the heart of the galaxy, from which life was also said to have emerged. The midi-chlorians played a role in eternal consciousness; as all living beings generated the Living Force.

Because the Living Force fed , or you can say was connected to the Cosmic Force , the Living Force communicated through the midi-chlorians in all Life Forms, allowing a being who had the knowledge to display many powerful displays and even manifest themselves after death. made possible the phenomenon of Force spirits.

The two main practitioners of the Force's power were the Jedi Order and the Sith Order. They both had their Champions, and represented both a Light, and Dark side of the FORCE.

The Jedi Order was an ancient, monastic peace keeping organization, unified by its belief in and observance of the Force, specifically the light side. Before the rise of the Empire, the Jedi served the Galactic Republic as guardians of peace and justice for more than a thousand years.

"Well, the Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together." ―Obi-Wan-Kenobi—

The Sith, collectively known as the Sith Order, were an order of Force users who utilized the dark side of the Force in an effort to gain power over the galaxy. The Sith were the ancient enemies of the Jedi Order and fought numerous wars with them for thousands of years.

"Well, the Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together."

―Obi-Wan-Kenobi—

Qui-Gon Jinn uses the Force

"All energy from the Living Force, from all things that have ever lived, feeds into the Cosmic Force, binding everything and communicating to us through the midi- chlorians. Because of this, I can speak to you now."

―The spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn, communing with Jedi Master Yoda

"For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us."

―Jedi Master Yoda describing the Force to Luke Skywalker--

Usage of the Force granted a number of useful powers, such as the ability to sense impending attacks; to push and lift physical objects; influence the thoughts of others, known as the "Jedi mind trick"; and even see the future or maintain one’s consciousness after death.

Dark side users strong with the Force could summon lightning from their fingertips. Jedi taught younglings that the Force could be used for many purposes, including protection, persuasion, wisdom, the manipulation of matter and the performance of great physical feats.

Certain individuals that were not Force-sensitive sometimes doubted its very existence. For example, Han Solo once stated, when asked by Luke Skywalker if he believed in the Force, that "I've never seen anything to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything."

Neither the Sith or the Jedd . . .

Now, what do we learn from both the Sith and the Jeddi ?

We see that both thought they were the most important and were fighting for the most righteous cause. Their impressive efforts were most powerful and so courageous ,and yet, both were close to extinction ( the ‘last Jeddi’ as well as every sith were fastly being replaced ) and their war between each other was destroying them both ! In the end the term of “trust the force Luke” became the most significant ! Yes it wasn’t about the Sith or even the Jeddi, it was the POWER OF THE FORCE that was the REAL SECRET to longevity !

WOW, you can see how creative, how complicated and complex our minds can be in this world . . . and how we can create our own worlds to fit any imagined reality we choose.

AMAZINGLY HOWEVER . . . HOW IT SEEMS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT TO SEE TRUE REALITY !

God is our Father and OUR BEGINNING the only POWER AND ENERGY that is forever. GOD GENERATED ALL THAT EXISTS FROM and by JESUS AND BY HIM all continues. Jesus is our LIFE and Living Force that really is all that really matters for us to know and contemplate.

How much time do we give to Him ? The One, Jesus “the creator of all things and the One Who maintains them.”? All of God is fully revealed in Jesus and yet He seems so foreign to us. Our Life is powerful and forever but we seem not to be connected and UNDERSTAND THE ONENESS with our life force, Jesus .

MAYBE THAT IS WHY AND IN FACT WHY WE PERISH ?

GOD IS HATED AND DISPARAGED BY SO MANY ! IT SEEMS THAT HATING THE LIGHT IS MOST POPULAR !

IN our world we are living with the Good and the Bad. It really doesn’t matter if you are a Jedi or a Sith . . . both are out for themselves and at ANY rate both are diminishing in numbers. The living Force is not dependent on either the Jedi or the Sith. The Force will not be diminished or affected by either the Jedi or Sith if they are eliminated !

REALIZE THAT GOD REALLY DOESN'T NEED US. GOD'S DOMINION AND POWER IS NOT DETERMINED BY WHAT WE DO OR DON'T DO ! Whether we are good or bad, God says "no man is good !" IN ANY CASE , GOD REMAINS TRUE - PERFECT AND SATISFIED, AND COMPLETE AND IS ETERNAL.

From THE VERY BEGINNING IT WASN’T US WHO EVER DECIDED FOR US TO BE ALIVE ! Right now , we don’t even decide if we continue. We wouldn’t even know how to keep our heart beating and spontaneously breath, or have our own cells to regenerate!

RIGHT NOW WE THINK WE ARE ACTING LIKE MASTER of the UNIVERSE and CONTROLLER of IT ALL . . . BUT IN THE END. . . SO FAR . . . ALL ENDS UP DEAD ! US ! OUR LIFE , OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. . . ALL .

IS THERE ANY SOLUTION ?

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE WORKED IN CONSORT WITH OUR LIFE FORCE, THE ONE WHO MADE US AND SUSTAINS US ?!

COME TOJESUS AND SEE IT IS GOD. “JESUS IS THE LIFE”, GOD’S LIFE IN US !

VALUE HIM, HE IS OUR SOLUTION,ALL WE HAVE. He is the only One that makes forever !
