May the force be with you?

“Concentrate on the moment, feel don’t think…
May the force be with you.”
– Yoda 

Somehow the family convinced me that it would be a good idea to watch the entire Star Wars collection… I hardly ever watch movies unless they are educational documentaries or gems from my childhood like ET or The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training… 

The thought and idea of sitting down to watch 11 different Star Wars movies were actually so comical I said “sure” just for the humorous sake of it.

I did figure at the very least I could get some quiet time in the dark and bang out a few Daily Hustles during the 2 hour nightly pow wow cinema sessions… 

Tarah, knowing how difficult it would be for me to sit through even one movie (in an attempt to get me to pay attention), suggested I would be able to conjure multiple Daily Hustles ideas out of the legendary compilation…

Enough said, she had me at Daily Hustle.

So, I gave it a shot and intently sat through the first Star Wars ever made, “A New Hope,” which is actually number 4 in the series… I had seen it when I was a kid and kinda like ET, it invoked a lot of the feelings I had when I saw it for the first time when I was 5.

This time though, it also captivated me in an entirely new way… I became consumed with the mysterious and all powerful “FORCE.”  It was difficult to really comprehend as a child but as a wisdom seeking Daily Hustling writer, I now have a few questions to dive into… Let’s explore 🚀 

What is the force? 

The force is an energy field that dictates many if not all happenings in the world. The almighty powerful force is what interconnects the entire universe and its beings… 

Who has access to the force? 

The force is accessible to everybody yet only understood and tapped into by the fiercest and most badass Jedi warriors who possess super natural powers and capabilities that will fuck up just about anybody and anything in their path… 

Where does the force come from? 

The force comes from being one with our universal surroundings. It’s a deeper understanding of the universe and all life forms and energy fields as we know them. The force is a power that is jointly created by a next level cohesion between man and environment… 

Is the force good or bad? 

Although the force is inherently good, its power can be exploited when irrational and over emotional characters take their feelings too personal and then turn to the dark side… 

May the force be with you? 

Ultimately, the force requires a lifetime of relentless daily training and in order to have any chance to feel, see or experience any of its miraculous capabilities, one must live with an extreme respect and ultimate humility while embracing the exact moment in time and letting go of all conscious thought… 

Yup… The force is some heavy shit. Don’t be discouraged if you are having a difficult time understanding… It’s been a 40 year comprehension process that’s still going.
