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.

    • 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)

    • Article: What if Marriage were Temporary? (Last post by ren)
    • Quote: I think that there is a real reason why marriage in almost all the traditional societies was enforced social obligation; it wasn't until around the middle ages in Europe that the idea of making a personal choice about who your spouse would be came onto the scene. In europe it's around the end of the middle ages that regular people started getting married. Before that, most people (peasants) would be what in the Uk we call "common law married", which is essentially people considering themselves a family without ever formalizing anything in front of anyone. Only monarchs and other people of power would ever get married, and that was always for political or economical reasons, sometimes (often) resulting in some degree of inbreeding, something that remains common in parts of the world today.

    • 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: http://www.templeofthejediorder.org/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.

    • The Code(s) (Last post by Gisteron)
    • What always troubled me about the revised "yet"-code, was, that, and you guys know me by now - I love me some precision - it always sounded like somebody is having trouble making up their mind. Yes, I hear them saying, it is about balance, middle path, zen, yadda-yadda-yadda... So what does that accomplish? We already know there are two sides to most issues, thanks for the info. Of course, short of the Force line, everything else in the orthodox code would resemble classical stoic teachings though, and the "yet"-framing is at best just failing to represent that and arguably speaks of the opposite instead. That's why the new pattern of displaying the codes as parallel and giving different views on "the same teaching" sounds discretely iffy to me, though I suppose that'd be a discussion all on its own, and with some brain spine breaking mental gymnastics there sure will be some apologetic to talk the elephant back out of the room when it didn't have to be brought in the first place... To be frank, and this is my opinion only, I think the "orthodox" code is by far the more useful one. Where the "yet" version only tells you that there just are some opposites here and there, it barely makes a judgement or prescription. It tells you nothing about what to strive for nor gives you insight into anything you hadn't already internalized by the time you read it. On the other hand, the "orthodox" code is way more judgemental and strict. That may not always be a good thing (the Temple has had its share of newcomers who needed that explained and smoothed out for them), and I also understand everyone who ever gets confused by the parallelistic format when the lines are so different (and please, someone, push me to finally write my complete essay/treatise of the orthodox code), but at least it makes a statement, which is, again, more than can be said of the "yet" version. Sorry if I was being harsh again :unsure:
