ooooooooo your the Sunflower ....
Take some time to relax and take some time to get in touch with what we each call the Force. It is said The Force is what binds us. Trying to pen that very thing, even we as beginners know is not a easy feat. As seasoned Modern day Jeddist Its no easy task. It gets larger and larger every time I learn more explanations of what The Force can be and is. Its huge the more I seek and learn and find real explanations in use.
Take your pencil and draw a sunflower. Go ahead. I chose a sunflower because its easily identifiable and pretty much any one can at any age can do this. For those that didn't bring one - take the time to go get one and join in on the very real thing you can do. Draw a sunflower. Make it stick - crayon- paint-charcoal- how ever you choose. Draw one out and complete it. (post it)
Reality of this exercise- No two pictures will ever be the same. I hope you really drew one because now, you have something to look at and remember that the Force is like an idea or can be. It can be a lot of different things for everyone. Discretions are just that, our way of explaining what's present. What is present? What's real? What does your sunflower look like? Does the description match what's been made?
Im going to post a link to this one on the Forum. look for it and lets see those pictures of sunflowers. Lets see - real differences and real similarities. As time goes on , I hope it can continue to challenge people to join in and create something worth passing. The Force comes in many forms, in the form its held in at times. That means you.
That means you and what ya bring as well- the whole shabangabang. You AND your description, along with the hopes and dreams and fears and laughs and tears.
My hope is that we have a tangible idea of what The Force can be - in real life- what it looks like- to us, from something simple. Something any one can do. See ya in the Forums.
May the Force continue to be with y'all - Pastor Carlos
So, post your picks of your own sunflower here. Post your ideas about said topic as well. Ill post mine. Feel free to post a pencil sketch for the sake of the excersise and then bring your A game if your a Artsy type. Feel free to personalize your second one as well. This is a interactive message and I hope it continues.
here --- we ---- goooo
Force be with yall
It was the first flower given to me by my husband when we were dating. I’ve grown them in every place we’ve lived. The mathematical ideal in the arrangement of the seeds.
I also love that they always face to the sun, but on grey or cloudy days, they face to each other.
Your world view works for you. My world view works for me. We will not change each other's mind today. But we can still show each other the bridge that meets in the middle.

Its roots grow deep into the soil we share with our bare dirty feet, and worms, and other insects and bacteria and minerals. You take handfuls of soil and smell it, then put your face to the sunflower and smell its part of existence in the Force. The stem, like our spines, support its life. Its arms reach out to capture rain and sun. It lifts its head in morning wakefulness to greet the Force's energy radiating off the morning sun; then bows down in the evening to sleep under the vast spread of stars - each it's own seed, its own system, its own world. All part of the Force, sharing space and time together. For me 'that' is the Force.
Got a sketch to add to that post? And that’s kinna how I see things too- the Force for me dwells in the things I see and look for. It always meets me there. It goes with the saying “ seek and you will find.” Sometimes it’s in the rain for me too... in the sound. But that’s me- I still dance and play in the rain. . . Often.
