"All energy from the Living Force, from all things that have ever lived, feeds into the Cosmic Force, binding everything and communicating to us through the midi-chlorians. Because of this, I can speak to you now."
―The spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn, communing with Yoda[src]

The cosmic aspect of the Force had a will, binding all things with the energy of all life.

Together with the Living Force—the energy of all life—the Cosmic Force formed the energy field that bound all things[1] through and transcending space and timethe Force.[2] Through the Cosmic Force,[3] midi-chlorians formed a symbiotic relationship with living beings and communicated to them the will of the Cosmic Force.[2] Because of this will, nothing occurred in the galaxy by accident.[4] By clearing the mind of any thoughts and acting on instinct, sentient Force-wielders could listen to the Force's will[2] and become an instrument of it,[5] fulfilling their predestined path. The Jedi were agents of the Force's will.[2] Let'ij believed the will of the Force desired the flourishing of life, harmony, and community, and was only heard by those who operated as a larger organism; a community.[6] However, all lifeforms attuned to the presence of the Force through the midi-chlorians could hear it.[3]

In death, one chose to enter the cosmic Force;[3] Leia Skywalker Organa Solo did not pass into the Force until her son Ben Solo died as a redeemed Jedi,[7] where the two entered the cosmic Force together and found peace at last.[3] As explained by the former Jedi Ahsoka Tano, since the Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus became a part of the cosmic Force after life, his will could manifest within a loth-wolf, which went by the name of "Dume" and briefly communicated with Jarrus' Padawan learner, Ezra Bridger.[8] After the Galactic Civil War, the cosmic Force became dormant and was seemingly quieted to those who could sense its presence. Turbulence within the cosmic Force coincided with the awakening of latent Force abilities in individuals such as Finn and Rey.[9]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
