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.
