Happy Star Wars Day! Why? Because the most famous quote from the entire Star Wars Series is Han Solo (Harrison Ford) saying to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), “May the Force be with you!” Throughout the Jedi training, there are powerful demonstrations of The Force, and how it can be directed. If just anyone could do it, there wouldn’t be Jedi training, would there?
And some time after the original 1977 movie, someone cutely said, on a 4th of May, “May the Fourth be with you!” And so was born Star Wars Day. Star Wars fans and nerds everywhere text each other the greeting, early each May 4th.
The Force, in the system of Star Wars, is a quasi-intelligent force that is directed for Good by cognoscenti of the ways of The Force. Yoda, the Jedi Master in the first movie, was around 900 years old (don’t correct me– no spoiler alerts!) , so he had been dealing consciously with The Force for a very long time. Yoda took on training Luke Skywalker, who had about 900 years of knowledge and skill to catch up with. The Star Wars movies tell tales of the timeless conflict between Good and Evil. Somehow, Luke Skywalker’s father, Darth Vader, had started as a Jedi Knight and went over to the Dark Side. Please DO NOT POST ANY SPOILER ALERTS in the comment section! There may be 12 or 13 people on the Planet still planning to watch the series.
What keeps coming to me, whenever I think of the Star Wars stories, is that The Force IS WITH US. In my experience of life, the Divine is a Force both subtle and dramatic, always dynamic when we turn our attention to it. Scripture says repeatedly “I will never leave you nor forsake you (Heb 5:3 for example).” So God is always with us. When we draw on the strength of God, of the Holy Spirit, there is no limit to what we can do. I have had many “impossible” exploits, with faith in the Divine. If we live in joyful expectancy of Divine Love and what the Divine is bringing, we can train ourselves to wield our faith to craft a powerful life. We can become stronger and stronger, wiser and wiser, better and better able to wreak Good in the Universe. And then we will be even more Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm.
