    • Kim Davis - Your Opinions (Last post by Jestor)
    • Its not really OK to be a person when you are an elected official, or even an appointed one... You are, in the execution of your position, a representative if all the people you represent... I am an elected official, and I serve here... There are times I disagree with the decisions, but my job isn't to form a personal protest, but rather to enforce the "laws of the land" in my elected position, and temple laws/policiies as a council member... I also have to act as as the group sometimes... As I active for the betterment of the group, sometimes, whether I am doing something for the group, or for myself, gets blurry... I try to always represent the group publicy, such as my.language is usually clean... But get to speak to me personally, and I drop f-bombs like GrandMaster Flash dropped the beat!! (Outdated reference? Lol)

    • Custom or Bulk TotJO Patch Requests (Last post by Kamizu)
    • Because I am limited on time I decided to put custom orders in a thread and I'll get to them in order as I can between everything else in life :) I can't promise a timeline but I will go in order. To make a custom or bulk request, please post here with the following information: 1. What color fabric (background) 2. What color thread(s) (or what rank/position you want) 3. What boarder style (Round, oval, rectangle, shield) 4. What design embroidered? (just the logo, or with the stripe) 5. What size? (Small 2" or large 4") 6. How many? 7. Other requirements (such as velcro!) I can even embroider names across the logo on the large ones if you'd like. (will add to cost) OR you can always go with creator's choice ;) If you need something specific, please give me the details. If you give me a general idea I can pull something together for you! Payment options (prices calculated to include fees): Etsy: Small $4.34 Large $6.41 PayPal Invoice: Small $4.38 Large $6.41 PayPal Gift: Small $4.00 Large: $6.00 Cash/Check/Money order: Small $4.00 Large $6.00 And naturally plus shipping. The last two options don't give you any kind of insurance if I don't send the patches to you. The patches CAN travel in the US under a Forever Stamp if you want to send me a per-addressed envelope we can do that route too. There's no tracking with that though. When I get ready to make your order, I will PM you to make sure you're still interested and still want what was said. Once I make it, I will take pictures and send them to you for you to ok them. I will hang on to them for two weeks (longer if you contact me) for payment. After that you'll have to catch them on the 'random patches' listing on Etsy ;) I'll "thank" the post once I'm completed with the order and ready to go on to the next one so you can see where I'm at. Prices may change depending on the fabric or thread you want. Velcro or any other additives will increase the price. I'll let you know the price before I start making your order.
    • TOTJO Official Patches Available Now (Last post by Kamizu)
    • For ease of ordering, I've split up the Rank and Positional patches for both the large and small sections. I'll edit the images in a bit to show only those patches available in those listings.

    • i have a ton of mantak chia books on developing and using chi....most of what's in them was instinctive for me, but still fascinating to read....
    • Accepting Our Sadness/Melancholy (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • My mom actually had the best answer I recall. "Sometimes I just need a night to myself to cry." I had accidently stumbled in on my mother crying while watching Titanic. It's one of her favorite movies and she was always crying watching it. I never understood as a kid... But at some point just before Highschool I went with a friend to watch "Ever After" and I cried....I cried alot. It's not really a good cry movie like Titanic is...but the waterworks were turned on and refused to stop flowing. Afterwards...I felt really good. Relieved. Invigerated and very happy. Later in life I discovered other magical moments that involved crying for the sake of crying. For the sake of being sad. The sake of Grieving. The sake of letting those emotions free. It was the goal....To go into yourself and let it go. Its an important part of life :)
    • PTSD and Nightmares (Last post by Loudzoo)
    • I do not suffer from PTSD, or nightmares and am therefore unqualified to really comment. However, I have a psychologist friend who is has just opened a practice specialising in the treatment of PTSD using several techniques including lucid dreaming, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). Its early days for the use of lucid dreaming techniques for the treatment of PTSD but early research suggests the results are promising. Some techniques for developing skill in lucid dreaming involve the journaling of dreams - so such a technique might fit in well with the journaling your friend is already doing. His details are here: EMDR: Lucid Dreaming and PTSD: I hope that helps in some way.

    • History of Ideas- Religion. This might be interesting for some who see Jediism as a religion and are asked the question- what does it serve? What do all religions serve? Enjoy.
    • From time to time a poem (Last post by Reliah)
    • Sonnet 73 That time of year thou mayst in me behold When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang Upon those boughs which shake against the cold, Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou see’st the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west; Which by and by black night doth take away, Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest. In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire, That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the deathbed whereon it must expire, Consumed with that which it was nourished by. This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong, To love that well which thou must leave ere long. -William Shakespeare
    • Never forget (Last post by Adi Vas)
    • My aunt. She was an amazing person who brought so much love and light into the lives of other people, whether it was in the yoga/meditation classes she taught here in the United States or in her charity work helping build schools in East Africa. I will spend the rest of my life trying to love all living beings as she did, and be the kind of positive force that she was. She was my first spiritual mentor, and a surrogate mother to me all my life, but especially in adulthood. She struggled with many of the things that I struggle with now, like anxiety and depression, and taught me much about how to live with those things. In a few days it will have been a full year since her passing, and I still miss her dearly.
