Because This Is Your Life

Here’s something you’ve heard about and known of for some time now.

It’s called…”A New Hope”

Do you know what it is?

You may be saying either “no” or “I’m not sure.”

But I’m certain that you do know.

In fact, this is something that is with you 24/7 throughout your entire life. And yes I’m still referring to “A New Hope.”

It was first made public back in 1977 and instantly became known worldwide. . However it’s been a part of civilization since the beginning of time.

Not only that but if you have children they most certainly know what “A New Hope” is…

Only under a different name.

Star Wars.

Most people—unless they watch and pay attention to the first opening seconds of the very first original Star Wars movie—are not aware that the name of the movie is called, “A New Hope”. And that it’s actually Episode 4.

Now of course this isn’t all about Star Wars but rather what “A New Hope” really is and how it is with you throughout your entire life.

And most importantly…

Why this matters to you and how it has everything to do with what you achieve in your life.

As silly as this may sound, the Star Wars movies, beginning with “A New Hope” are without a doubt some of the most spiritual movies you’ll ever see…

And along with that contain some of the most profound life lessons that you can use in your own life.

When you watch any of these movies, you’ll hear numerous mentions about “bringing balance to the force”, about “bringing order to the galaxy”, about “it is your destiny.”

And even though the backdrop of these movies contain silly looking science fiction creatures—along with numerous silly moments—there is a tremendous amount of wisdom that you can use to transform any area of your life.

However the main theme that often goes unnoticed—or perhaps not as much now because i told you—is balance.

Or as I like to frequently say… living in a two sided world.

Your ability to learn, know, and be aware that you live in a world that is, always has been, and always will be two sided versus one sided is vitally important.

And it can’t be said enough times.

Most people are trying to live a fantasy driven life while thinking they’ll be more happiness than sadness, more peace than war, more positive than negative, and so on.

By trying to live this unrealistic life is what most often leads to the very events and situations people are actually looking to avoid.

Don’t take my word for it.

Take the time and look back through your life all the way up until right now. What will you see? That you had happiness and sadness, peace and war, positive and negative…equally.

Also look at the situations where you tried to be way more of one side than the other. What you’ll see is that at some point the opposite came into your life.

For example, look at all the relationships you’ve been in. We’ve all had relationships where when we first met the person we got infatuated with them and only saw positives and very little if any negatives.

What happened?

If you tried to continue seeing all the positives in this person or tried to have a “positive relationship” at some point the negatives came in…and in some case a lot more than you would have liked.

This is a simple example and one that can and has applied to any area of your life.

Here’s something else…

When you really look close enough you’ll see that both sides actually occur at the same time in the same moment. And not only that but each has both served and dis-served you throughout your life in the different areas of your life.

Why is this important?

Because it will allow you to become more poised and present.

In fact, this is another very subtle aspect that’s involved in some of the characters in the Star Wars movies…most notably Master Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi. You’ll see that these two in particular are always poised, present, and very calm no matter what is going on around them.

Therefore your ability to be more poised and present will allow you to come from a balanced mind. This means you’ll be coming completely from your loving heart.

And the result…

You’ll make clear decisions, not emotional decisions.

You’ll be more in tune with your purpose and mission, not living according to someone elses.

You’ll increase your probability of meeting the right people at the right place at the right time…rather than relying on so called “luck” or coincidence.

And of course you’ll be your true authentic two sided self living a fulfilled life, not an unrealistic, unattainable, fantasy life…also known as a “happy life.”

Think about it…

You were put on this planet to stand tall, not to shrink and wither away.

You are here to be, do, and have a healthy and fulfilling life doing what you love most.

You are here to realize your inner brilliance and magnificence while sharing it with the world—in a way that can help others do the same.

And remember…

“This is your destiny.”
