GOOD DAY to you all, where ever you may be. May the Force we share and seek and serve be with you. These are peculiar times. There is a part in The Hero's Journey when-its the part when the main character or the attention is on the pit or the belly of things, down in a hole some where or in the dark locked up or something like that. One of the joys of The Hero's journey is ya already know the basics. You know the one.
One of the two best characters - friends- duos of all times is our very own, Han and Chewey. These characters are fictional and belong to their respected Franchises but growing up watching the bond of those two. Watching characters like that and wondering how it happens. As I grew up, I was a street fighter. Hands down. My best friend and most of them fruited from my worst moments. Bar fights yielded arrest and personal drama and a good drinking buddy or two. In the real world, I found that during my most trying times, In the belly of the stuff, in the pit of life, in a cell, in the worst place in your path possible, ya never know what ya find. Solo was my guy growing up. That dude was my ninja. That was me. I identified and wanted to be as cool as him. I'm a fan. As I study and learn, I found out that The Hero's Journey can help me a bit more than just telling me a story. The long ranger, the Solo, The Hanso with honor, that lone hat and sword, gun, That character, that was how I identified almost every time. A lot of us do. Welcome to the Hero's Journey. In the pit ya never know what your gunna find. Han found a beginning right after it tried to kill him. It was his shifty dealings and survival techniques he already had that broke the definition from beast to buddy. That's possible. Some times during the pit of life or during the worst times, we can find what we need. Han didn't get lucky. Neither will you. Some say you can find peace anywhere if you make it. Some say luck favors the prepared. What I'm saying is some times the beast DOESN'T need to be slayed. Some times you never know what you fine, even in a pit. Keep your focus and always remember, The Force is what connect us. Whats connecting us right now.... yea, its for real. If you needed a better reason to have to realize we are collectively subjected to equality in one way or another, welcome to 2020. After all this, there is no doubt we are all connected by more than just a few things. I call it the Force. Many do. Many do not. That's ok too.
