Overview

The "Star Wars" series contains, for some, a philosophical basis. "The Tao of Star Wars" uses the motifs from the "Star Wars" series to explain tenets of Taoism. Although some of these concepts are relatively familiar, such as acceptance, patience and simplicity, their nuances as they apply to Taoism are invigorated utilizing the "Star Wars" motifs. Other tenets, such as wu wei, yin-yang,and p'u, may be completely foreign to the western mind and deep philosophical explanations are not practical for application to daily living. Since following the Tao is walking a living path of harmony with the way the world is, sensible definitions are needed. These Taoist concepts have life breathed into them by the "Star War" themes. This will allow the reader to apply these concepts to one's life as the essence of the Tao is to experience life in the presnt moment.
