Star Wars as Personal Mythology
If you are a fan of the Star Wars movies than you may find this post very intriguing. Even though I have not followed the Star Wars trend too closely, I do like the higher concept of the movies and how they reflect our emotional and spiritual journey in the universe. I found this article written by Jonathan Young to be a profound glance at how these movies mirror the spiritual journey of our souls incarnated as human beings on Earth and some of the turmoil we face as a humanity. I always love looking into the psychological and spiritual aspects and meanings of anything so this article had me glued!
Jonathan's article was also discussed by Bill Moyers and George Lucas in a recent issue of Time Magazine. Jonathan has a wonderful way of expressing his ideas on The Force, which is honestly what I have felt it was as well. Which is basically the intuition or soul of the person, or the universe or god speaking to them or through them. He goes into great depth about the different archetypes expressed in the characters and the problems that they face in the Star Wars film The Phantom Menace. He goes on to explain that all of the issues they face in the film depict problems we ourselves face as individuals and as a collective. The article is long but it is so worth the read in my opinion. I feel it is always appropriate to be conscious of the higher meanings of things and the significance they could have on our own lives and our world and universe. Art represents life, and the Star Wars movies do a good job of representing the full spectrum of what it means to be a human in this universe.
