I believe in a force in the universe, something akin to "The Force" in Star Wars

Do you think it is possible that this force is coming from somewhere ?(Aliens, Human Technology, or possibly God?)
Has anyone ever felt like they had done something Wrong ?
If so, Why do you feel like you did something wrong?
Do you think that this feeling could possibly be something that you could lose over time, if ignored long enough ?? (I.E. Learn or Evolve if you will to not acknoledge these thoughts)

[Quote]Apologies, wasn't trying to say blowing off the question ... Hence the reason I went back and corrected it to say POSSIBLY OVERLOOKED ...[/Quote]
It's just that it's so iffy . . .
Way, way , way too many possibilities. Where is the force coming from?
Whew, lots of angles here.
I'd like to think of it as a cosmic Karma, waiting for us to tap in.
[Quote] I kinda see what you mean .... I.E. Such as Meditation ?
Have I ever felt like I've done something wrong? Of course. We've
learned there is a difference between right and wrong. (upbringing)
[Quote]So you are saying what I know as wrong/right is because of the
was that I was raised ?? Or possibly not even the way I was raised but the
things that had happened in my life as I was growing up and the decisions
that I made.
Do you think that it is possibly for someone to change those views that they have based thier life on growing up ?
And if so, Do you think that everyone has that opprotunity or is that possibly based on the results of how you were raised as well ?
Right is good, wrong is bad. Not being perfect, mistakes have been made.
For which we've paid the price, right? The spankings, the corners, the
silence, the restrictions, the banishments, the executions.
We've been told that feeling good about something bad isn't good.
[Quote]Was everyone raised this way ?[/Quote]
Will I lose the feeling of doing something wrong, over time?
( You mean guilt here right? We are talking about guilt?)
I suppose I am talking about guilt ... I don't wanna limit it to just GUILT ... I want to leave it open for FEELINGS that are not guilt because GUILT to me is to close to the word GUILTY.... Which is saying you already did the things you are feeling Guilt over. I am talking along the lines of littler things things such as if you are married possibly looking at another woman and Lusting. Or just for a split second wishing you could have that. For that certain example do you think someone going to Vegas and sleeping with different woman plays a part to that person coming back and looking at many different woman and feeling those same thoughts !?!? Or is this just Human Nature ?

You know when your a child, your aware that your alive, yet your not on the ball, so to speak. Then somewhere around 10-14 you become more aware of what reality actually is, and what you really are... i think there is a relation between growing up and the chemical '___' (cacaoist.blog.com...), the so called spiritual molecule. From birth, the '___' levels will decrease until the pineal gland has stopped making the enzymes etc for '___' (in other words, children are "tripping", in a dreamlike state, until puberty/when the '___' ceases)
Someone posted this on page 1, forgive me for not quoting but im so tired!
"So in anything which adds to the creation and maintenance (including necessary cycles of birth and death) of the universe and in particular our world and our practices, I see God"
That makes humans God, because we create. We are creating all the time, even the movements of our bodies is creation. I believe everything is God, because everything is creating, no energy goes to waste! Our urine mite appear to be waste to us, but it is a meal to decomposing bacteria, for example.
