About time! :D
In seriousness, though... I've felt that the best reflection of the Force is that of the traditional Chinese Taoist philosophy--the dualism of the Yin and Yang, as commonly viewed by the Dao (the swirly black/white circle thingy. Koreans have an angular version.) If you consider the rationale behind both sides of the Dao, there's huge similarities on both sides. The Jedi better represent the Yin aspect, with all the stillness and avoidance of emotional extremes. The flip side, the Dark Side, is all about being controlled by emotion and action that embodies the Yang.
Of course, the worst aspects do show up--that's why there's a dot of the other side in each half, to remind us to balance ourselves in harmony with the Tao/Force. Hence, the appearance of the true Sith and the Jedi Knights, as both are supposed to act in accordance to harmony on their respective sides.
I suspect this is why the small Jedi "religion" in England is still fairly active--it's really geeky Buddism. :D
