No big secret here, I love Star Wars. Who wouldn't?
Just saw Revenge of the Sith. Very very good movie, couple of sceens to be improved upoon but it makes my ponder... what lessons on the nature of the force can we learn.
1. Attachment- what drives Anakin to the Dark Side, is actually LOVE or attachment to an object of his love. This in a quandry that I believe I am at odds with. There are many on the path that feel attachment leads to just this, the Dark Side. I say, how can love lead to the Dark Side?
But love is blind, and being blinded by love one may not understand the repurcussions of their actions.
I believe it comes back to LOVE, without attachment. Now there is a concept, how does one love less being attached.
The feeling of love with an object is as equal to the feeling of love without the object. (Ladies I apologize, I mean not to refer to women as objects, it holds equally true for men and men are silly objects)
I think I have already blogged on Love is a fire
So to love without attachment, hmmm, to love many without attachment
I still prefer to be in love. Meditate on this I will.
2. Don't mess with crazy old dudes that tell ya you can live forever. What if that crazy dude is yourself?
3. Never try to sneak up on Master Yoda, you'll be headed in the wrong direction.
4. The force is very real, humanity as a whole wants to believe in it. Now how do we convince them that it is okay to believe???
I'm a believer in the Force.
May the Force be with you my friends ~
