the Force is all aspects. Life could not be denied its emotions, death had its place, and rejecting or focusing on a few aspects while ignoring others was simply denying reality and oneself. Becoming a complete being and guardian of the Force required embracing it all and investigating the mysteries of the galaxy,

These words reference different things, but I feel that they define how I relate to the Force perfectly. The Force is the term I use reference to all things that relate to something greater than ourselves. Since I hold true that that force is all things, and all things are the force, I believe that all of these different words are simply describing an aspect of the force that the author can perceive.

I feel that we all need to start focusing on the Elephant and not of look at the part we are touching.

Prana
prana (प्राण, prāṇa; the Sanskrit word for "life force" or "vital principle"[1]) is all cosmic energy, permeating the Universe on all levels.
Brahman
the Ultimate Reality in the universe. It is the pervasive, genderless, infinite, eternal truth and bliss which does not change, yet is the cause of all changes.
Brahman as a metaphysical concept is the single binding unity behind the diversity in all that exists in the universe.
Atman
Ātman (/ˈɑːtmən/) is a Sanskrit word that means inner self or soul. the true self of an individual beyond identification with phenomena, the essence of an individual. In order to attain liberation, a human being must acquire self-knowledge (atma jnana), which is to realize that one's true self (Ātman) is identical with the transcendent self Brahman.

All of these read like definitions of The Force. The Force is the new kid on the block. Many cultures, throughout history have studied it and define it.

Like Joseph Campbell, I have sought out the central thread that runs through all religions. I found that I need to be part of all religion or none, until I found Jediism. I like that this a "fictional" belief that can be free of traditions, history, and disrespect.

We are the Force.

Out of curiosity, was this in response to another thread, or was it a purposeful copy/paste? I'm missing the context.

I agree though, looking for the elephant should be our goal.

Yes, Sir.

The force is my term for Source, the great divine it, or "god".
For me, the force is "everything". Everything that exists is the force: cosmic, living, and unifying force.

I feel it anytime I pause long enough to acknowledge it.

I feel it when I write poetry that just appears on the page.

When I pause to feel into my actions and choices. like chess, I can project into the future what might be the possible outcomes of my choices and I can decide what route I want to take.

I can feel it when I feel into the connection with and between the beings in the room.

I can feel it when things flow and "ckick" into place.
I feel it when a conversation flows.
I feel it when I meditate, workout and train. I especially feel the unified force when I spar.

I know that the force is real because we exist.
Birth is the most amazing example of the force. Call it what you will, to deny the presence of something granter than our own perception of life, is to deny the mystery of life, is to deny life.

We are the Force.
