I am a crazy devoted Star Wars fan.
Here are my three tips -based on the hundreds of times I have watched these amazing films:
1. Pause in the whirlwind of activities. Take a deep breath. Maybe close your eyes and connect with yourself within. Quigon Jinn paused for brief moments of mediation even as he fought Darth Maul. We can take a pause in between holiday errands and parties, right?
2. Take time to fuel up with healthy food. Luke was in a hurry to meet his teacher (Yoda) when he landed on Dagoba. But without knowing that he had met his teacher, he followed Yoda to his small home to do what– eat some healthy food! Food is fuel, so take time to sit down and have healthy meals (a warm healthy soup is an exceptionally good idea). And by the way, my opinion is that Luke should have shown more appreciation for Yoda’s soup.
3. Feel a connection to something greater. Volunteer, get involved in your community. Understand that we are all connected through something we can call the Universe, God, Goddess, All that Is, or just… The Force.
Watch this video of when Quigon Jinn explains the Midichlorians to Annican. They are behind the force that binds us together:
And here, Obi Wan explains the Force to Luke:
