Trusting in the Force vs. Acting of the Force

There is a difference in trusting in the Force and acting of the Force.  Sorry, guys...it gets more complicated.  Trusting in the Force, that is the first step.  One will never be able to touch the Force unless they have trust in it.  That act of trust is the only way to ever find peace in and/or with the Force itself.

Acting of the Force's Will is much more difficult.  To give yourself totally over to the Force, and allow it to control everything about you is more than trust, it is true faith.  This is that which brings about danger sensing and receptive telepathic combat skills.  The Force takes control of you to keep you on your path, either by making you do something, ore merely keeping you alive.  There are also higher levels of abandonment, and I will give a personal example of one:

I have grown capable of blocking any attacks that come my way, expected or not.  This skill also flows out into whatever weapon I hold in my hand.  However, when at work, I set our automatic tennis ball launcher to fire at me...and while I could stop anything coming at me by hand, I failed horribly to connect consistently with my shinai.  The senses changed because there was not a sentience with intent on harming me, or any true life-or-death danger coming at me by some tennis balls.  I can only rarely let go of myself enough to block more than one in a row.  I did, however, get up to five in a row...once, but that was closer to the end of the session.  I got a lot of twos and threes, though.  Out of the two hundred or more tennis balls that were shot at me, I blocked maybe thirty.

This shows that the Force does not obey a Jedi. but rather helps them accomplish their task, it aids them in furthering their path.  It is not a tool to be used, it is a very powerful skill, and power brings with it duty.  It also does to show one of my weaknesses, showing that we all have the ability to grow, no matter how long one may be on their path.  Also, let this example show you that work pays off in time.  Do not push, because that is a shoving match no one can win.

There is no emotion; there is peace.
There is no doubt; there is resolve.
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no passion; there is serenity.
There is no chaos; there is harmony.
There is no hatred; there is compassion.
There is no death; there is the Force.
