    • No need for a physical temple (Last post by Edan)
    • Quote: Hello my friends. I have to disagree with you, we need a jedi temple, we need to have a place, not only to meet in person other jedi, but to have a system to teach others, to make other people to not see us as a Joke or nerds that like star wars...if se want to be recognized in the world we need something phisical that people can see that we are not just playing. I appreciate that you want us to not be looked at as not serious, but as long as we are happy with what we are doing I don't see the need to do something just to improve someone else's opinion of us. I would hope that people don't consider a building to be the organisation... the Temple of the Jedi Order is its people, not its property. Our actions should be our message, in my opinion. With regards to meetings, you don't need a building, you just need people to turn up at one place, anywhere (indeed, us UK people are doing that this year). And we already have a system to teach others. Some may disagree with me, but I slightly suspect that you haven't read the entire thread, so if you haven't I would go back and have a look at all the arguments.
    • Daredevil anyone? (Last post by Edan)
    • Quote: Hallway fight. That is all. I went back and watched it a couple of times... Some of the series I really like; I like that it's not been fit into the same kind of mould as Arrow and the Flash, and I really like Fisk and how his story has expanded. It has felt a bit lacking in a few places.. I can't quite explain, but there were a few episodes where I felt like there was some depth missing; not to Matt but the story itself. Is it silly that I prefer the 'zorro' thing Matt has going on to a proper suit?
    • The negatives of "life hacks" (Last post by Mareeka)
    • Quote: Stop Hacking Your Life I came across this today and found it extremely interesting. Specifically, about two thirds of the way down in began discussing two different types of time: chronos and kairos. Both are greek words I believe. The idea that chronos is simply the time on the clock and kairos is feeling time. Really it's hard to explain, the article does it better. Thanks for highlighting chronos and kairos. I researched Kairos . . . It is the event that seemingly happens out of the blue. . .positive or negative . . .the unexpected call from a friend you haven't heard from in a long time or finding out you have cancer. The article for me points to abstract/creative mind & analytical/reasoning mind. In no specific context . . . except that the distribution within one may be change throughout a lifetime.

    • Who are you to say that? (School of Life take) (Last post by rugadd)
    • I often keep my mouth shut because of such responses. I some times feel I can't say anything on a lot of topics because I am not an expert or can not remember all the significant factors. This can lead to lower sense of self worth.
    • Terrible Idea (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • Jedi have been doing Gatherings and Chapters since 2002. Meeting up offline, training together, studying together, and partaking the social friendship's that has brought many of us together like family. Chicago, Colorado, California, Michigan now has two Chapters....These are things we should be supporting and developing further. These are what will lead to more stable and permenate locale for "Temples" Michigan has already served as home and retreat for several Jedi in need by simply opening up our extra room to them. The Jedi Temples are you home and backyard.
    • What do you "feel" is the future of the ... (Last post by Locksley)
    • Quote: Just to toss this out there you do under stand that gospel just means good news right? So really there is no direct fact or truth associated with that word. www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gospel

    • Etsy Artwork (Last post by Arcade)
    • Wow, Streen. You're very talented. Your use of space and color are amazing, and I really like the tiny details that aren't immediately noticeable. Thank you for sharing your work.
    • Looking for Clergy Volunteers (Last post by Akkarin)
    • Quote: I was wondering if a few of you ministers/deacons etc, who aren’t caught up with other responsibilities, would volunteer to do a little piece including a bit about you and the work you do for the clergy that I can post in the Youth Forum. I'll try to do this today or tomorrow :) If you'd like you could get the clergy themselves to post it in their journals and then someone (I'll volunteer) can use mod-powers to move those posts over to the Youth forum. This way the post will have that persons avatar and stuff readily available.
    • Rewrite the Bible? (Last post by Kamizu)
    • Quote: Something like that could only either go very, very right, or very, very wrong. And, knowing people... I know...I was just trying to be optimistic :silly: silly me. ;) Quote: But, if one adapted Jesus' style of teaching, in parable, to the whole of the Bible, it would be a lot easier to digest. But that's what many modern Christian pastors do anyhow, and people still don't quite latch on. I was in an old-school church, they didn't really do this. :cheer:
    • The Reiki Thread :-) (Last post by Arcade)
    • I've spoken about my experiences as a Reiki Master-Practitioner in a few threads, and my basic feeling is that it's beneficial on many levels, whether or not one believes in its general effectiveness. I find that it's always (at the very least) relaxing for those receiving treatments, and everyone I know who has gone through Reiki training has found it useful in ways they didn't anticipate. Training and regular practice definitely helped me become a much more patient and compassionate person, and taught me how to be calm and comfortable around others. I'm an 'if it works, use it' kind of person... and, for me, Reiki has proven a valuable tool. I use it on myself frequently and have given Reiki treatments to friends on occasion. Very few people know I have any connection with Reiki, however. I tend to keep my thoughts on the topic private, as I don't have the time or energy anymore to argue with those who think Reiki has no practical or personal value. In quick response to what you wrote in your initial post, OB1 - there are many Reiki practitioners who don't 'feel' anything. That's not an indication that your attunements didn't work or that you're going about things incorrectly. I don't know what might have changed between your attunements, but as long as you remain open, focused, and connected, you really can't go wrong.
