Star Wars fans (especially fans of the first 3 movies) have heard and probably even said this phrase many times. But just what IS that force?
For me, the force is a power that is possible, within us, or that we are capable of tapping into. It is in our soul (if you believe) and it is from there that all the good positive thoughts, urges, instincts, desires, intuition, creativity, etc comes from. It is from there that we can help ourselves and others to see things more clearly, find solutions to our problems, make connections. For many it is god (or God). Or prayer. Or being somewhat psychic, if you will.
This is where we need to focus our energy. Whether we are working, or raising our children, trying to solve a problem, or achieve a goal. I think when we share our force, the force only gets stronger. Call it karma or God or whatever, but if you put good vibes out there into your universe, they tend to grow, and tend to come back around to you.
Just try and be that positive force for people around you. Help a stranger, or a friend or family member. What was that saying, "pay it forward" ? (by the way, a great movie). Inspire someone in your circle. Be the light.
Sometimes, as the words are leaving my mouth, its like I hear a "ding-ding-ding" in my head. Like, whatever it was, it just finally made sense to ME. (anyone who teaches has probably experienced this)
So I guess I have rambled on enough for now, so "May the force be with you".
