Star Wars is one of my favorite movie franchises. Not just because it’s an awesome adventure across strange worlds and star systems.
The top reason why I love the Star Wars story is the philosophy behind The Force.
It’s an epic journey that voyages through many worlds and civilizations following one universal truth about the 2 eternal opposites, The light and the dark. The Jedi and The Sith.
But, like real life, in between these 2 sides there are many shades of gray where real magic happens. And I believe that here lies the key to understanding the truth.
Between these 2 sides there are many beautifully colored characters who carry their point of view and unique wisdom extracted from experiences.
Here are the 10 BEST, MIND-BLOWING Life Quotes from Your Favorite Star Wars Characters:
“The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.” – Qui-Gon Jinn
Sometimes the greatest form of intelligence is to keep quiet.
“You will find that many of the truths we cling to, depend greatly on our own point of view.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi
The truth you hold is a language through which the outer world is translated into your inner world and vice versa. Therefore, any truth depends on the mediator between these 2 worlds, the individual who perceives, and what they choose the truth to be.
“Always pass on what you have learned.” – Yoda
You cannot truly learn something until you teach that thing to someone else. Sharing what you know is how humanity grows, and you along with it, A LOT more than if you kept the knowledge for yourself.
“You can’t stop change any more than you can stop the suns from setting.” – Shmi Skywalker
There are 2 constants. The one thing that is constant in The Universe is change. The second constant is that nothing ever changes. In between these 2 constants The Universe exists.
“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” – Yoda
Everything that you can lose is never really yours, and what is REALLY yours it is impossible for you to lose it. Fear is a distortion of who you REALLY are. Anger is usually a mask of fear. And neglecting yourself this way is why you hate. That’s why you suffer. The only way out is through.
“Easy is the path to wisdom for those only not blinded by themselves.” – Broadside
Usually, the greatest mistakes we make are not because of ignorance but because of the stiffness of our ego. We need to learn to unlearn. Wisdom is a fruit that ripens only when the ego gets out of the way.
“Nobody cares who your father was, only the father you’ll be.” – Mandalorian Proverb
It doesn’t really matter what kind of circumstances happened to create you. What matters is what YOU choose to be. What kind of circumstances you choose to create.
“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force.” – Yoda
You are The Universe experiencing and falling in love with itself. The way you are is impermanent, however what you are is permanent, eternal. You are but a wave in a giant ocean.
“Your focus determines your reality.” – Qui-Gon Jinn
What you look for you will see. What you see will be the world you perceive. There are infinite number of worlds around you and it is really up to you what you choose to see.
“There’s no mystical energy field that controls my destiny.” – Han Solo
Even though there are many laws in The Universe and many factors that are outside of our control, STILL, there is a part in all of us which is ultimately free. This is your superpower, your ability to choose the waves and the way you’ll surf them.
