These are the 4 forces of your universe: if you don’t master them, you will be mastered by others.

When it comes to the physical universe, there are 4 forces in play. I wrote about them in my article When it comes to physics, there are 4 forces; when it comes to humanity, there is a 5th force. That force is stronger than the 4 others combined. Master it, and you will master your life.

To recall them very quickly we have the following forces:

In the previous article, I talk about a fifth force. If you want to know more about that force, I recommend you to read it.

Those forces deal with the universe as we know it. We are talking about the Milky Way, the observable universe, and beyond. We are not also forgetting the atomic world and beyond: the quantum realm.

Do you believe in the existence of one single universe, or are you more into the Multiverse?

Even if you find it difficult to imagine the existence of the Multiverse, I am sure that you are aware of the existence of at least another universe.

The universe I am talking about is the one within us. Our internal universe exists within the frame of the classic external universe.

We can agree that we all have our unique universe as human beings. Because we experience life in a specific way, we could assume that we are all walking universes.

Hence in this article, we will refer to the billions of people on Earth and the external universe as the Humanverse, the Multiverse of humans on Earth.

Now that we have set the environment, let us depict the forces in action.

As humans, we have a lot of forces driving us from birth to death.

Each decision we take results from the victory of one, or a combination of all those forces acting within our internal universe.

Let’s assume that we could identify all those forces and rank them. The following 4 forces are the cardinal forces of the Humanverse.

Like the cardinal directions (North, South, East, West), we have to know them to locate ourselves within the Humanverse, our Humanverse.

Here are the four cardinal forces of the Humanverse:

These forces compose the compass of our life. We must carry them with us wherever we go, day or night, from birth to death.

Often we will find ourselves in the darkest and deepest ocean of our Humanverse. Other Times, we are flying high in the sky of our life.

No matter when, no matter where we are, we need to bring those cardinal forces with us.

COURAGE — Act always with courage.

“Courage is the most important of all virtues because, without courage, you cannot practice any other virtue consistently.”

Maya Angelou

The force from the North brings it warms to our Humanverse. It is the light without which there is no life.

It is the light that guides us from our darkest moments. It is the light source of energy propelling us to the stars.

Acting with courage always, even when nobody’s watching, is the pinnacle of the Humanverse.

Because there is always someone watching: you!

TEMPERANCE — Act always with temperance.

Temperance is moderation in the things that are good and total abstinence from things that are foul.

Frances E. Willard

Too much of anything can make us sick, be it our pride, our ego, food, not showing up, or even too much water.

It is all about the quota rule in life. The rule is quite simple. Each of us has a quota on everything in life.

What happens when we reach our quota?

Only one of 2 things happens: worst-case scenario, we die; the other scenario is that we cannot have an atom of that for the rest of our life.

JUSTICE — Act always in light of justice.

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

We all have a part to play in the symphony of the universe. Silence is consent.

If we cannot change it, we can try to influence it. If we cannot influence it, we can denounce it.

If we cannot denounce it, we can support those who are acting on it.

Sometimes we are put in a position of power to be put to the test. One day Karma will come back collecting its due.

She does not take credit cards. Every act of injustice will be paid up-front, before our eyes. If we are not creditworthy, the debt will be paid by our lineage until the sun and Earth become one.

WISDOM — Act with wisdom.

“Knowledge without wisdom is like water in the sand.”

Guinean Proverb

Often we pride ourselves on knowing it all. Yet only the wise person knows that they know nothing.

Wisdom is the cement that holds all other forces together. It is the dark energy of our Humanverse.

Knowledge is at the pinnacle of our existence on Earth today. Yet what we know today is the lowest of whatever we will know tomorrow.

We have to strive to be surrounded by wisdom in all shapes and forms.

It is not about how much we know.

It is more about how much we put to good use for the sake of our Humanverse and in harmony with the universe.

These are the cardinal forces of the Humanverse. We might be lost, buried in the darkest places in our souls.

As long as we remember that we have those forces within us, we can always find a way out. We can find not just one way out.

We can find the right way out.

What are the cardinal forces of your life?

How dark is your Humanverse?

Are you a Jedi master of those forces?
