“Your Compass, Your Guide” by Mary Morrissey

Do you remember in the early Star Wars movies the great wisdom that came through the character, Yoda? One of his wisdom teachings has stayed with me a long time. I want to offer it to you today:

Yoda: …A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight…

Luke: …Is the dark side stronger?

Yoda: No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.

Luke: But how am I to know the good side from the bad?

Yoda: You will know… when you are calm, at peace, passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack…Already know you that which you need.

Luke: I don’t believe it.

Yoda: That is why you fail.

So, as you make decisions today, look for that peace and calm that is the confirmation that you are in tune with the Way of Things. Turn to that peace and calm as your compass and believe that it will guide you.

May the Force Be With You,

Mary Morrissey
