Star Wars: Parallels in Daoism

Sometimes Ancient Knowledge appears in popular culture. Let's take a look at a quote from Star Wars the Last Jedi:

"Luke Skywalker: What do you see? Rey: The island. Life. Death and decay, that feeds new life. Warmth. Cold. Peace. Violence. Luke Skywalker: And between it all? Rey: Balance and energy. A force. Luke Skywalker: And inside you? Rey: Inside me, that same force."

It is not a surprise that these themes happened to have been expressed in such a widespread and popular movie series!

Can anyone see the parallels in terms of energy work/Qigong and how it relates to this quote?

It is an interesting modern phenomenon that such a film is so beloved in so many people's hearts yet few are inspired to take up self-cultivation practices. It surely resonates with a deep part of those who are open to listen and be inspired to take action.

According to Daoism, can you see what isn't fully right in this picture? It is related to Rey's training.....
