In honour of it being May 4th today, I decided to bring on the wisdom of Yoda. If you’ve never seen any of the Star Wars movies, I’d highly recommend watching at least the first trilogy. And if for nothing else, watch them for the wisdom.
I was never interested in these films until a couple of years ago I was practically forced to watch them. After the first film, I was sold.
So without further ado, here are a couple of reasons, from Yoda himself, why you should watch Star Wars:
Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
Luke: I can’t believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.
You must unlearn what you have learned.
Many of the truths that we cling to depend on our point of view.
Do or do not. There is no try.
You will find only what you bring in.
Named must your fear be before banish it you can.
Are you convinced yet?!
If not, I hope that at least some of Yoda’s wisdom hit home to you. After all, they’re universal truths about life and I hope they will inspire you.
May the 4th (ie. Force…) be with you!
Until next time lovely,
