    • My vision for a United Jedi Order (Last post by RyuJin)
    • When I directly entered the url for some of those I received "website not found"...and doing a google/yahoo search turned up almost nothing....and on the ones I did find the most recent activity was more than 6months old... Was I being routed to archived pages? Because the jao site I found had its most recent update over a year ago...
    • Real Jedi vs Fictional Jedi (Last post by Adder)
    • The fictional Jedi for me is just a (future) modern application of spirituality in its most refined and successful form... portrayed in some future world as an example of how it might have turned out. So for me, they represent a dedication to a synthesis of mind and body but importantly that the resultant nature (Force) is highest in the form of compassion. Something I agree with from my work with Buddhism. So IMO a real Jedi by contrast, ideally would have that dedication to self refinement as a compassionate path to higher wisdom, which enables them to better respond to external circumstance. The fiction beyond that main theme to me is mostly metaphor for struggles in that end, eg the lightsaber's to me represent body based proprioceptive training to exercise the body and mind in spatial and kinesethetics intelligences. The flying around in space ships in the same way but more mind based, at different scales of distance, and being the limits of technology available. While the lightsaber effectively could be the most simplest, such as a piece of stick off the ground. Things like robes are interesting, as I can relate to the pull to ascetic training but IMO all the fighting, romance, politics etc are just the drama which is used as a vehicle to entertain people to experience the concept that spirituality can develop wisdom which can empower action to advantageous effect. So perhaps the difference between the fictional Jedi and real Jedi is that its not the result or appearance (as dramatically portrayed in fiction), its the intention and effort (which is the shared nature between both).

    • How do you meditate? (Last post by Doomeniek)
    • Quote: it's a Buddhist meditation where you allow the mind to wander and just watch where it goes with a kind of detachment. Observing the thoughts without interacting with them. I can't tell you much more than that because I haven't tried it myself :) maybe someone else can chime in though :D Did that once, got into some weird places
    • about meditation (Last post by Rickie The Grey)
    • Quote: Walking is for me a good way to meditate, when me and my wife take the dog for a long walk in the forest, we actually dont say a word, we can let go of thoughts. Time we forget :P it feels so refreshing afterwords I have done that while walking very slow on a treadmill, eyes closed, holding the side rail, breathing in and out in sinc with my steps. I focus and visualizeon on the repetitive motions of my body & it's sensations as it moves through the steps. Very grounding.
    • Grey Jedi...Anyone else? (Last post by ckott)
    • I thought it was India and they did it because you mostly eat with your hand and wipe your ass with your left hand....so basically they cut off the left and u can imagine from there im sure
    • Jediism and inspiration (Last post by Goken)
    • While I find the whole of Jediism inspirational I guess that the parts that really got me hooked would be: the code, the Creed (which I repeat in my head whenever I face adversity), and Jedi themselves. I wasn't really sold on becoming a member here until I started reading the forums.
    • Which lightsaber colour should i use (Last post by Goken)
    • My favorite color is green so I wanted to go with that for mine, but there was a sale going on that made buying Obi-Wan's cheaper (yes, I bought a ForceFX replica. It's my second because it goes on my display wall in my living room. I also have replica weapons from other movies so a movie replica lightsaber seemed to fit that best.) So my jedi one is blue. (when I say 'jedi one' it's because I also have the replica of Darth Maul's because the double ended was super cool to me. lol)
    • I, Mormon jedi (Last post by Reliah)
    • I guess I'm still Mormon. I haven't been excommunicated or have withdrawn my records or anything like that... but I can't truthfully claim to be a Mormon.. because in my heart and mind I'm not at all... Does that even help...? Probably not... :dry:
    • Think about it quote... (Last post by Rickie The Grey)
    • "The universe doesn't owe you anything but an education......and it gives you lessons every day." I read this today and loved it. Enjoy
