When the death star in the original Star Wars destroys an entire planet, Obi Wan says that he felt a huge disturbance in the force.
The force in Star Wars is described as “an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.”
There are times I believe in such a force created by God. I do believe that in some mysterious way we are part of everything, and that everything is a part of us.
Our senses, no matter how keen, are limited. Our vision, hearing, sense of touch, smell, and taste can take us only so far. The Arapahoe call this the “Seen World” but believe there is also an “unseen world.” It is in this “unseen world” we experience life’s mysteries. If we pay attention to the unseen world as well as the seen world we experience a new and wonderful reality. It is in this new world that we realize that we are part of everything, and everything is a part of us.
