"Truth, like milk, arrives in the dark but even so, wise dogs don't bark, only mongrels make it hard for the milkman to come in the yard"
-Christopher Morley (1890-1957), [Dogs Don't Bark at the Milkman]
The Force is a binding, metaphysical and ubiquitous power in the universe, it's force kin to gravity and the evidence of its existence can be seen in nature. This concept has been around long before George Lucas mentioned it in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The Force is an energy field created by all living things, it surrounds and penetrates all living beings and binds the universe together. Within the human body, there are what are called midi-chlorians, microscopic organisms that reside in living cells and communicate with the Force. A being's potential to use the Force is correlated with the number of these organisms residing in its blood. The Egyptians knew about this force and they called it Neter Amon. The Egyptians viewed the God Neter Amon as THE HIDDEN ONE and he was said to abide in all things. They believed that he was the soul of all phenomena and in more traditional forms of Witchcraft Neter is the Dark Force which permeates and motivates all of nature and for us GOD is another name for NATURE.
The Force can enhance natural physical and mental abilities of those who know how to harness its power. Those of us who are truly in touch with this have what we call SUPERNORMAL ABILITIES. The power of those of us who have supernormal abilities is not all that mysterious once you understand that everyone has the potential to use his or her hidden powers and abilities. For example, someone who practices the martial arts knows how to channel his or her lifeforce or Ch'i. This person may seem to have superhuman strength but in reality, they have supernormal strength because they have the ability to channel the life energy within them and use it to their advantage. The true magician knows how to use this energy to enhance his five senses (hearing, sight, taste, touch, and smell). We have to ability to hear what others don't, to see what others do not see, we taste what others fail to eat, we touch what some may perceive as untouchable, and smell the scent of others like our friends in the animal kingdom.
Those of us who follow THE LEFT-HAND PATH follow the Dark Side of the Force which has to do with rational self-interest NOT EVIL because we know that the concepts of right and wrong, good and evil are subjective concepts there not objective ones. We follow THE LAWS OF NATURE. Those who follow the light side of this force follow the RIGHT-HAND PATH and get their inspiration from outside of themselves, they tend to be spiritual folk and seek approval from a godhead for their actions.
Those of us who resonate to the DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE is usually associated with the earth, darkness, the moon, the feminine YANG, and the abyss. We are angels going in the other direction. We live outside of the restrictions of social propriety we represent the dissenter and were natural-born iconoclasts. It is said that we practice magick without a license because it is not connected to a church it is connected to nature and its laws. The Force for us is just another name for the balancing factor in nature and in its feminine form, she is represented in Egypt as Maat. Our kind has always existed we are by nature self-made individualists. We do not seek the warm campfire of those who live among the human herd and conform with the laws of breathing men. We venture out to the dark forest and seek the wisdom that nature has to offer.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.
-George Bernard Shaw
