What Your Favorite ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Character Says About You

#1, it had to be #1. (Like the person I reblogged.) Maybe a little #3. No, No, NO! It has to be Luke. It has ALWAYS been Luke. When I was a naïve kid, I admired Luke the naïve kid. When I was a journeyman professional, I admired Luke as the same.

And, now that I am a reclusive old man who might teach someone if they are willing to try, it is STILL Luke! But, he is not an option in this list. Looks like it is back to #1, Han Solo, with a tiny dash of #3. But, I am more scavenger than smuggler, just not garage sales; used book stores, instead.

Then again, maybe BB-8 is the best pick….

You don’t tolerate nonsense or drama in your life. You are resilient toward other’s opinions of you, and you pride yourself on being fiercely determined.

Miscommunication Madness

kerrylouiseyoga

This is an issue that is really bothering me this week. It’s always made me shake my head or roll my eyes when someone is going a little bonkers about how someone said something ‘out of order’ over text to a vague social media update that is perfectly timed with something someone did to upset someone else.

Yes, I understand that it’s seemingly easier to hide behind your phone or your computer and say what you really think is on your mind, but perhaps the reason you’re feeling so brave is because you’re not faced with facial expressions, tone of voice, gesture or body language. And in turn, the person on the receiving end of your blast of anger is in the same boat, and without these clarifying cues, we then “fill in the blanks” with our worries and assumptions.

Snake: Oct 23 – Nov 22
Most shamans are born under this Native American animal symbol. The Snake is a natural in all matters of spirit. Easily attuned to the ethereal realm the Snake makes an excellent spiritual leader. Also respected for his/her healing capacities, the Snake also excels in medical professions.

Left to his/her own devices, the Snake can be despondent, violent, and prone to abnormal mood swings. Learn more about the Snake totem here.

What Can I Fix?

Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai hid from the Romans in a cave for thirteen years. There he was visited by heavenly beings, by Elijah the prophet and even by Moses. It was there that he composed the holy Zohar.

When he left the cave and came to a town, he did not say, “Let me enlighten you with the inner light of Torah, the light that has been hidden since the six days of creation.”

He said, “What is there in your town that I can fix?”

Whatever knowledge a human being is given in this world, whatever wisdom, enlightenment or inspiration, it is all only and exclusively for one purpose: To assist him to fix up this world.

Likkutei Sichot, volume 32, page 152, based on Talmud, Shabbat 33b.
