Star Wars Wisdom

When you start looking you see that pop culture is full of wisdom. Some times its subtle, sometimes it just whacks you in the forehead and says "Listen".

Yoda: Careful you must be when sensing the future, Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.

Anakin Skywalker: I won't let these visions come true, Master Yoda.

Yoda: Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them, do not. Miss them, do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is.

Anakin Skywalker: What must I do, Master Yoda?

Yoda: Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.

Its time to ask yourself. Why must wisdom be found in some dusty old book, or yogi in a far off cave. The truth is the truth no matter where you find it. Remove your preconceptions and you have given yourself the key to the lock.
