If you mean the audios for Joe Campbell and such...

They are in the front page of the site, as well as in the library...

Does that help?

"If you think it is important to know about yourself only because I or someone else has told you it is important, then I am afraid all communication between us comes to an end. But if we agree that it is vital that we understand ourselves completely, then you and I have quite a different relationship, then we can explore together with a happy, careful and intelligent enquiry.

I do not demand your faith; I am not setting myself up as an authority. I have nothing to teach you - no new philosophy, no new system, no new path to reality; there is no path to reality any more than to truth. All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."~Krishnamurti~

You can find everything you need under the "Studies" tab at the top right of the website, next to the "Home" tab and the "My Totjo" tab. There, the initiate's program is outlined in great detail, and you can begin at any time, as well as take as much time as you need to complete these assignments.

Good luck!

    • Buddha and the Cat (Last post by Adder)
    • Saw an unusual show the other day about unusual animal relationships, and included a few which were predator and prey becoming best friends!! I think all this stuff about 'animal nature' is merely referencing unguided instinct. I cannot speak to the capacity of non-human animals to have complex enough thoughts to override those instincts, but the show seemed to highlight that at least other peaceful instincts like the benefits of trusted companionship or love could override the more common ones of exerting power for hunger and security. Though I'd have to watch the show again, perhaps there was some influence of humans - because pet's are a good example of a non-human animals becoming 'tame' when given role models which provide those things (food, security, company etc). So I do not think instinct alone is representative of our nature, at least not in humans, rather instinct seems to be one aspect which can work with the conscious thinking mind, but also against it sometimes.
    • FAQ Update (Last post by Brenna)
    • hmm. I'm probably being pedantic, but bear with me. It says that the security officers are like moderators, not that the forum moderators are security officers. I was under the impression that there was a moderator team that kept an eye on the forum, but specific security officers that over saw more serious issues than just questionable behavior in forum. I think having the two different names might be confusing? or are there in fact two different capacities? Maybe it just needs a bit of clarification.
    • The Three Tenets (Last post by Aqua)
    • Quote: Quote: I belief [sic] that foolishness is the greatest form of wisdom you can ever find. Quote: foolish adjective Lacking good sense or judgement; unwise: :silly: Now, I give you this question, be prepared because this will be the long version. Lacking good sense of judgement.. What is good, how do you translate good, more important how do you translate a sense? How do you know jour judgement is thoughtful? What makes it unwise to be a fool Wisdom could be transferred as the appropriate action under all conditions of live, knowing there are many ways to explain, explain wisdom for example. Now what is an appropriate action? Lets say that the appropriate action of this post is If I put all the questions in one question: What is a thoughtful judgement that makes an unwise to considered a fool under all appropriate conditions of lives action? I could say: how to separate a wise man from a fool without knowledge? How to understand the knowledge without wisdom? I could say: A fool that knows that he is a fool, is more wise than a fool who thinks he is wise - Siddhartha Gautama ca. 450 vC. - ca .370 vC Does this mean a fool can not be a wise individual? And if I ask how do we learn without making an foolish mistake, could you answer that? A fool is not expected to ''know better'' or to ''know'' anything, because of this, the fool has often been given great freedom in many ways. Freedom of thinking is the first stap of self awareness if you ask me.. self awareness is one way to discover wisdom in yourself. Believe whatever you wish to believe, this is just one path, one question :side: Lacking good sense of judgement.. unwise.. I wonder who wrote that part of the book ^^ ~Bart
    • Article: What if Marriage were Temporary? (Last post by Aqua)
    • Quote: That "you" was rhetorical and reflection is ment a personal thing for the individual to find answers in themselves for themselves. If going into a "marriage" tempoary or otherwise commitment is something to think about and share with the other half so you're on the same page. No offense taken. Admire... :blush: You're too kind. How a language barrier can extract.. truly wonderful, You're too kind to, seeking answers in myself.. you speak book volumes of wisdom :) I will remember when I get the opportunity of marriage.
    • Dream job? (Last post by crystale)
    • One point is the urgency: I opine that: We all,specially young people (with full energy that need to be canalized) we all need patience. We have more chances of discover things around us if we are in armony and peace. Challenges physically and intellectually are all around us in our society all the time With much attention we can make a study of our place and how we can insert our help to others. Maybe you can't to start in adminstrative works, but you can help to people that need help in one area. An area that you know (Some voluntary or less remunerated work can to add experience) Be nice...and available... When you are in a place in universe ... this place can to conduce to other doors... We can plan some things. But we ignore the future in details... One very important teaching is the teaching of the life More that papers,(papers also have their importance) but more than papers, we have the posibility to be nice persons One great carpenter can to build a nice and expensive chair, but maybe also can to build excelent and nice dog house Challenges physically and intellectually are all around us in our society... and many oportunities, maybe hidden...we can wait the singular chance in middle of the apparently ordinary.. And time is time,(maybe dont need to think that time is a thing that you can to lose...always (whatever you do)take time,so... ¿you maybe prefer in middle your preparation,and study (take some time for fun) :woohoo: Important is to be happy in present and not just wait future (balance) words of Ryujin : ", do what you love " Is wisdom or in other way: do not make things without love B)

    • Books for Free (Public Domain) (Last post by Akkarin)
    • Quote: I've posted some of these on my wall previously, but I think they deserve a thread, and as an avid book collector this is quite close to my heart. There are a lot of books out there that are now in the public domain but you might find sites like Amazon still charging for printed or kindle copies of them. Below are some websites where you can find these public domain books: Books Should Be Free Project Gutenberg Global Grey (This one is a bit easier to look through than the first two and has some interesting stuff, especially for religion, philosophy, history and occult subjects) Feedbooks Authorama (Perhaps a nice mod could sticky this?.... maybe, maybe :) ) Each of those links was added to the library: Thank you.
    • This Week In Science (Last post by Khaos)
    • Renewables Now Produce 22 Percent Of The Worlds Energy. Last year, renewable power capacity expanded at its fastest pace yet, reaching nearly 22 percent of the global mix. Up from 21 percent in 2012 and 18 percent in 2007, that puts renewable electricity generation—from wind, solar, and hydro—on par with that of natural gas. But with uncertainty over policy support, the expansion of renewable energy will slow over the next five years, according to a new report from the International Energy Agency. Renewable energy could make up over a quarter of global electricity generation by 2020, according to the agency, but annual growth is expected to slow and stabilize after 2014—putting renewables at risk of falling short of global climate change goals. “Renewables are a necessary part of energy security. However, just when they are becoming a cost-competitive option in an increasing number of cases, policy and regulatory uncertainty is rising in some key markets. This stems from concerns about the costs of deploying renewables,” IEA’s Maria van der Hoeven says in a news release. “Governments must distinguish more clearly between the past, present and future, as costs are falling over time.” The report also provided a renewable power investment outlook. Through 2020, investment in new renewable power could average over $230 billion a year—though that’s lower than the $250 billion invested around the world in 2013. The decline is because unit costs are expected to fall, but also due to expectations that global capacity growth will slow. However, with the focus on electricity and transportation sectors, the contribution of renewables to heating and cooling remains underdeveloped. Although renewable energy sources are expected to grow by almost 25 percent in 2020, their share in energy use for heat rises to only 9 percent—up from 8 percent in 2013.
