Today I want to talk about body language. I've been thinking about writing this post since I started writing this blog. And I've been thinking about this concept since forever.
Here's the concept: being able to read body language and use body language is kinda like having a Jedi Power.
Think about it. Body language is a nonverbal form of communication that guides the way that people interact with one another. If you are NT then this is pretty easy to understand, you can read people's faces and body language, you understand without words the way that people feel.
Obi Wan says of The Force"It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." The Force is unseen but still incredibly powerful. Many people aren't aware that they have many midi-clorians are powerful carriers of The Force.
You know the scene in Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope where Luke and Obi Wan Kenobi are going into town and they get stopped by storm troopers looking for droids that are totally in the hover craft. Obi Wan waves his hand at the storm trooper and says
"These aren't the droids you're looking for."The Stormtroopers are stupefied and let the merry band of do gooders pass on the way without further incident.
That's how body language feels for me. It feels like a super power. If you want to take the comparison further, then you can compare learning to use the force to learning to use body language. It takes discipline and work and is hard but totally worthwhile in the end. Like Luke using The Force to destroy the Deathstar, he had to practice honing his skills in order to become a more powerful Jedi.
Body Language is incredibly powerful, unseen by many NNTs. It is this really powerful thing that exists in the universe that not everybody knows how to access it. Some people are really good at using and reading body language and some people aren't.
I'm pretty sure The Force is strong with my mom. She can meet someone and tell you whether or not the person is worthwhile, and she's almost never wrong. When I was younger, I thought she could predict the future, it turns out she was better at reading people.
