I haven't really thought about this concept much until recently. Since learning the concepts of The Law of Attraction and reality creation, it took a more recent viewing of a few of the Star Wars movies to get me thinking.
Was Yoda being portrayed as more than just a movie character? Was he being portrayed as a real teacher behind the secret veil of a fictional character?
If you go through a lot of his quotes in the movie, they really strike a cord pertaining to what is talked about on this site.
Here are some of my more favorite quotes, and a Youtube Clip from Master Yoda.
Even Obi-Wan Kenobi say similar things regarding "The force."
It seems to me that there is a hidden meaning in these quotes that many people may not be aware of. Do you think that these sayings are something George Lucas meant for people to figure out and use in their everyday life, or are they just pure coincidence?
George Lucas says he was inspired by a conversation he heard involving Roman Kroitor, who said, "Many people feel that in the contemplation of nature and in communication with other living things, they become aware of some kind of force, or something, behind this apparent mask which we see in front of us, and they call it God."
The Force- An energy field created by all living things. It surrounds and penetrates us.
"The laws really are in yourself." George Lucas
"Similar phrases have been used by many different people for the last 13,000 years to describe the 'life force'." George Lucas.
May the force be with you! ;-) Love the question. I read something similar to this a long time ago and I completely forgot about it. I think he was onto something, definitely. I love how similar the Force is to the Law of Attraction.

I don't know if he did that intentionally or not. What I find really cool is the fact that when you are aware of the laws you begin to see them everywhere, from a Billboard advertising, a commercial on TV or a movie.
The universe is communicating with us in many different ways each moment (maybe in infinite ways...), we just have to pay attention. :-D

It comes down to which source you are researching to Lucas's inspiration.
He was writing the script for the movie in the 60's when the idea of a life force was very popular, along with peace, love and a lot of recreational drugs. Maha Rishi Mahesh Yogi's teachings of philosophy and transcendental meditation were taking off in America.
Basically you had to be hiding in a hole in the ground in order to not have a concept of a life force during this time in the 60's.
Also one of the most influential films on George Lucas when he was a film student at USC was the Canadian Film maker, Arthur Lipsett's movie titled 21-87, where God is referred to as the force.
But there are other mysteries about George Lucas that seem to suggest that He knew much more about the hidden secrets within our society. Perhaps he had help from hidden sources?
For example in Empire Strikes back, you see the inner guard of Darth Vader shown very briefly as an elite secret group of soldiers who have their own unique uniform that is a brilliant red color and a red facemask to cover their identity. These guards are based on, and identical to the secret inner guard within the walls of the Vatican, and their existence was practically unknown when these movies came out.

Hello Cory, your question implies that you already think it is true and are seeking confirmation ... i haven't seen the film, in fact i never go to the cinema ... from the phrases that you show, well, yes i would agree there are lots of ideas that correspond to the law of attraction, whether intentional or not ... just as there are plentiful examples of it in our everyday lives ... have fun :)

No I believe he was really a recreation of Merlin actually. The classic wise wizard only this time set in a futuristic sense. Most of our movies are based on the same things as many older movies, the plots are the same just modified to each situation. Characters similar to old characters everything old repeating again in one way or another.
