The Five Essences
  1. The Self
  2. Life
  3. Nature
  4. The Force
  5. Existence


The Self

In embracing all five essences they need to be done on at a time. The first is the self. This requires selfishness. To be selfish is to focus on the inner self. To study one self and break down and rebuild. The self has much to it and much insight and study is needed to do so. The self begins with learning about it. Emotions, Passions, Desires, Past being, present being, future targets. Also to look to strengths and weakness and indeed ones selfishness. To embrace the self one must use it and not just study it. To use selfishness, use strength, work on weakness, use emotion and follow passion.

Every dark devotee begins with the Self. The self holds many keys to unlocking the path you choose to walk. To study the self one must embrace all it's aspects and use it wisely and put it to good use in their own path. The self requires you to see your individuality. To see the ability to write your own destiny and write your own path. Nothing is already written. Everything is chosen. Embrace the power to choose and study your own will to do so. By embracing the self one finds internal darkness and internal light. These to must be embraced. The self is the first step but requires much time and much commitment. To know the self truly requires selfishness.

Embracing the essence of the self also requires certain qualities to develop. Self-control, Self-reliance and self-awareness. These qualities allows one to improve the self making selfishness much more meaningful.

Life

To embrace life is to embrace death. We are all made up of the Force. We are never truly born and truly never dead. Our bodies are the only thing that is born and dead. Our energy was not created and cannot be destroyed only altered. To embrace life I must accept that death is necesary. To embrace life I have to understand the path I chose to walk, not only to understand but to descover my path. To embrace life I must accept the path, see the present and choose the future. Nothing is already written so my path lies in only my hand.

Embracing life also is to embrace time. We all have our limited time in the shell that is my body. I can choose to use that time or surrender to it. A dark devotee embraces the life to the fullest. Doing so requires me to act wisely, use my time wisely and write my own destiny wisely. Embrace that life and death is a cycle and evolve with life. To destroy things of myself to create new ones. To embrace life is to be able to use death in order to progress.

Embracing life is also to embrace not only the things I consider good but to embrace the things I consider bad. Life is as much light as it has darkness. I must embrace the pain and struggle. Embrace the Peace and serenity in order to true embrace the essence of life. Pain and struggle is inevitable and I must use it instead of run from it. Peace and serenity is temporary and I must get the most out of it to feel life to the fullest.

Above is what I am currently studying. The five essences. However I am needing some pointers and maybe a little help from some.

How does one embrace Nature and Existence? Also is what I have written on life make sense?

I would appreciate feedback.

This is what I have so far but would like to expand on some.

Peace and serenity is temporary and I must get the most out of it to feel life to the fullest.

Nature

Embracing nature is not as difficult as the others may be. Embracing nature is to embrace that which is around you. To work with you surroundings so that it may contribute to your progress. Embracing nature allows you to work regardless of the ground you stand on. It is a tool to go beyond ignorance. I do not just learn of one place to walk my path but all places. Embracing nature requires you to use your surroundings. Use what is arround you for advantage and further evolution. By embracing nature your oppertunities increas and more knowledge and experience can be gained. Embracing the essence of nature allows one to break free of more limitations and become more free. Freedom is not given but earned. Embracing nature allows more freedom.

The Force

To embrace the Force fully one must study all it's aspects. The Force exists as a sideless force. It is completely neutral, however the dark side and the light side exist within the person. I must embrace both to fully embrace the Force. The Force must be embraced in each aspect. The Personal Force, The Living Force and The Unifying Force. One must be able to feel the Force. Use the Force and listen to the Force. When one has fully embraced the Force in both light and dark then one is truly one with the Force. One must study the Force, and have sufficiant knowledge of the Force and great experience with it. To be one with the Force is to truly embrace its power.

Existence

To embrace existence is to embrace all that is me. Embrace my own existence. Embrace life, death, and the Force. To become one with cycle. To embrace existence I must accept that existence never ends. To become immortal within my own energy. To see beyond the shell that is my body, and be immortal through my energy. To embrace existance I become free. To embrace existance I must see beyond my shell and become my energy. Embrace my own existence and define my own existence.

    • I have found one of the biggest personal downsides of tredding the darker avenues such as the Left Hand Path, is that without proper will training, the ego takes hold ands creates inner chaos that ultimately manifests in the practitioner's personal life. The will must be broken down, and then built up only to repeat the process. It is not a path for the mentally ill, or weak as it all too often unlocks hidden atravisms within the individuals subconscious mind...

    • That quote could easily have been taken from Alain De Botton's 'Religion for Atheists'. And after glancing over that article I thought it had... lol These kinds of questions are exactly the sort of thing that the new clergy training is going to try and ask, and actively work towards where possible.
    • Gisteron (Last post by Akkarin)
    • One of the perceived downsides of moral relativism, is that there is no real disagreement between two parties. In a relativist debate one person says "This is what I believe" and the other says "This is what I believe". If either side says "No that is wrong" then the other can say "Well that is just what I believe", because in moral relativism there is no 'Truth' there are only 'Truths'. That is the case in this thread (originally), except that both sides have used different methods of knowledge acquisition to arrive at their conclusions. One side has used logic and the scientific method, the other side has used experience. Who is right? Well they both are... because in moral relativism there is no 'Truth' there are only 'Truths'. Ultimately it all comes down to what you think works for you, what type of basis for acquiring knowledge you wish to use. I think of logic and science as being sharply defined, squarely cut and angular. I think of experience as being more fluid and bendy. Humans aren't machines, we are bundles of chemicals and chemical/electrical reactions, and if there is one thing about a big bundle of chemicals, it is that it is fluid and changing. Sometimes being angular is the best thing for them, but sometimes being fluid is the best thing for them.
    • Loosing a Loved one (Last post by tzb)
    • I'm sorry to hear of your loss. In my experience, the death of someone close to you does leave a mark on you at a very deep level. But with time that can go from an open wound, to a scar which is still a little tender, to something you can look at fondly as an important part of who you are, a reminder of the love you were lucky enough to experience. My grandfather was like a dad to me. He died about ten years ago, and for several years his memory remained painful. However over time I found myself remembering the good times; putting his final illnesses out of my mind and remembering the big man who would bounce me on his knee or lean down to give my cheek a stubbly kiss goodnight. I believe that those we love don't leave us in a very real sense, in that they are as alive in our memories as anything else we hold an understanding of: no more gone than the room is when you turn out the light. And in other ways we will join them again in the wider Force when this life ends. The elements which made them are dispersing back into the flow of things as, in time, we will. Let yourself feel whatever you feel. In time, you'll come out the other side. Remember you have our support. "The cure for the pain is the pain." - Rumi

    • Quote: I would love to build my own lightsaber, I just don't even know where to start. I'm sure I could do it I just need to do some research on them. Start with a sketch of what you want, then visit the hardware store (lowe's or home depot have a large selection of parts)look for parts that closely resemble what you want, then go to work...you can also visit some sabersmith sites for ideas and browse the forums here for some of the saber pics already posted...even the internal electronics are fairly simple, just requires a bit of planning beforehand so you don't wire an internal switch externally :lol:

    • People Killing Each Other (Last post by RyuJin)
    • It comes down to beliefs vs ideas...an idea is easily changed with new information, beliefs don't change easily....no one is willing to die for an idea and therefore unwilling to kill for one, people are willing to die for a belief and therefore willing to kill for one.... 3 prophets are at the center of a good deal of the current tribulations, moses,muhammed,and jesus...their ideas twisted into beliefs....
    • Elite: Dangerous (Last post by Adder)
    • No I haven't played it yet, I think I watched a dev conference video a few months ago... not sure if it was prompted from a post here or just random interest. I have a question, does the initial purchase allow unlimited play, or do you have to buy the program and pay a subscription? I've got a Saitek Joystick (X45), but the throttle died, so I use a racing steering wheel (as throttle) and pedals (for yaw) to add the required control inputs. Its rough and ugly, but it gets the job done if I can get the axis' to match.
    • Connor is back (Last post by Connor L.)
    • Yes absolutely! You can start a career at a lot of times. My friend is 65 and he's starting a Bass career now! He's performing too.
    • Helping the Homeless? (Last post by peace)
    • Where I live, California has homeless shelters and homes where they have volunteers who help feed the homeless. I on the other hand, helped upgrade one by changing it to a luxurious, fancy hotel lobby style. This place now has added chandeliers, no dirty smells, the floors and polished and cleaned daily, in house bathrooms with showers and even tables for you to sit in. This place is now hoping with homeless people. It is now visited by 10,000 homeless visitors daily. All thanks to me, the world is a little brighter, happier and nicer.
    • Pop killed the Rock star (Last post by Arcade)
    • I listen to music throughout 99% of my day (if at all possible) :) and buy a fair amount of music, and good rock bands are definitely still out there and abundant (in fact, I have a number of friends in relatively successful local rock bands). In many ways, the music industry has moved from the television and radio model (which is quickly becoming antiquated) to the internet model of music distribution. A large percentage of bands and musicians are now on labels of their own creation because they want to skip the greedy middlemen. Sadly, pop culture has always been about what they want you to listen to (as Senan well knows). I worked at a Top 40 radio station throughout high school and they really did have 40 songs they played each day (with few exceptions). Rock will never die. There will always be people, like yourself, with a love for the classic rock sound. ;) Rock will probably continue to evolve in some ways, and at this point in pop culture that means integrating electronic sounds. I love electronic music, so I initially came at this from a slightly different point of view... where electronic musicians introduced me to rock. I now listen to hybrid bands (rock and electronic) and bands that only use instruments (along with the necessary amplification equipment when they perform). Personally, I think there's room in the world for all of them. :) It sucks that the TV stations you like have changed their focus so dramatically. For better or worse, you may have to change your focus to find what you're looking for online or at live performances.
    • Best star wars movie/scene (Last post by Luthien)
