:: The Beauty of Star Wars : The Force May Be With Zen ::
After the extreme weeklong marathon of following the SW journey from episode one to six in the rightful order,
(Alright, I didn't see One and Four this time as temanbaik did but I think I did good enough.)
I think I may have unravelled my mystery of SW.
I'm never a SW fan, and unlike the fantasy of elves and magic, space and the galatica seemed banal.
So, haven't ever watched Five and Six, the past few days have been a relevation.
Especially the concluding Six.
Captivated I was to the last fight scene where Son meets Father.
And of course, the Emperor.
Emperor says he's defenseless, and if Luke slays him via his hatred he will be converted.
Luke, gaining strength via hatred, relents, and instead decides to choose inaction.
And with inaction, he indirectly compels the Oedipus in Father Vader to take action.
Two things resonate.
One. That Luke, by choosing inaction (there are three choices: action, inaction and indecision) made the right decision.
Thus, in my translation, sometimes in life there is a need to let go and to understand that sometimes one is powerless against certain aspects of life, and all one can do is to trust time and let nature shape the future.
The trick is to know when to act, not to act, and not to decide.
Two. That atonement is no more than the abandonment of that self-generating double monster - the superego (God) and the repress id (Sin).
But this requires the abandonment of the attachment to ego itself.
That is the difficult part.
One must have faith that the father is merciful, and then a reliance on that mercy.
La la la.
