On November 6, it was officially announced that the seventh Star Wars movie would be called “The Force Awakens.”
I yawned and said, “Well, duh!”
The Force (Or what I call the Field of Infinite Potentiality) is alive and kicking and always has been. Like someone tweeted this morning, “Once you buy into what @PamGrout is talking about, #Weird Shit starts to happen.”
The only reason we think it’s new or “weird shit” or just now awakening is because we’ve bought into the other story. The story that says, “This is all we get.” We’ve been pretending that we’re all alone and that we have no power and that there’s not a Force that is chomping at the bit to get involved in our lives, to connect with us, to provide us with guidance.
I get emails every day that start with something like, “You’re never going to believe this.”
Here’s one that came in yesterday. “I lost one of a pair of favorite earrings bought in Santa Monica, CA (I live in London so couldn’t just pop into the shop and buy another): gold hoops with black diamonds. I put out an intention to get the earring back and this morning on my dressing table were the two earrings! Isn’t that crazy and inexplicable!
It’s not crazy and inexplicable once you let go of the old story. The old story convinces us that there is “one reality.” That “this one reality” is solid, never changing. But it only sticks around as long as you continue to invest in it.
In the quantum playground, all things are possible. So instead of investing in “what is,” it’s time to put all our energy into “what might be possible.”
As 22-year-old John Boyega, one of the new stormtroopers in Stars Wars VII, said to critics who questioned the casting, “To whom is may concern….Get used to it.”’
