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.

    • Is Consciousness A State Of Matter, Like a Solid, ... (Last post by Gisteron)
    • Quote: Consciousness is not a state of matter, it is a field. Like the electromagnetic field lines up iron filings consciousness aligns the matter of our brains and bodies in ways that allow for conscious experiences. The brain and body are more like antennae to pick up the field rather than computers that generate physical changes that are somehow transformed into conscious experience. You can mess up the picture a TV shows you by interfering with the functioning of the antennae or any other material component of the TV set, but still it is the signal sent from the TV station that carries the information for producing the images and sounds, the frequencies and wavelengths, and the antennae only receives the information and the other parts of the TV translate it into visual and auditory stimulus. The images and sounds on the TV are simulations of reality, recreations, and not the authentic experiences that they represent. So with consciousness and our body and brains, what we see and hear and otherwise sense is not the truest reality but only a simulation of specific aspects of the whole of consciousness in the universe. We know radio and TV stations exist. If there were no receiver anywhere in the universe anymore and we forgot we created those stations in the first place, we could still visit the stations and we could still measure radio wave activity. If there were no brains however, how would we go about showing there is consciousness? Well, obviously if there were no brains, we wouldn't have them and therefore not care a lot about it. But let's say we are looking at a confined space without brains inside. How would you go about finding consciousness outside of brains? Now I can't really say I understand what you are saying. Perhaps that is a shortage on my part though, so I shall assume that it is coherent in actuality and just stick with the question of what could in theory disprove your model. Is it falsifiable?

    • This Week In Science (Last post by Khaos)
    • Creating plasma using a grape and a microwave is one of the great home science experiments. In this video Veritasium shows you how and discusses the science. For the confused, the plasma made here is the fourth state of matter, after solids, liquids and gas. It shouldn’t be confused with blood plasma, which is actually a liquid and something you probably shouldn't be experimenting with at home. That leaves the question, why grapes? As Derek and Steve note, lots of things will work, and you can have plenty of fun finding out which ones do. However, a typical large grape is about a quarter the wavelength of the microwaves your oven produces, which is the perfect size to act as an antenna. The grape needs to be cut so that the joining section heats up to the point where it vaporizes while the rest of the grape is still intact.

    • ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) (Last post by Alethea Thompson)
    • ALS- great cause. Ice Bucket Challenge- I live in a state in the middle of a drought, as such I won't participate. Donation- I already have two medically affiliated organizations I donate to: Marfan Syndrome Research and Make-A-Wish Foundation, as such I'd rather see my money go towards these causes because I have a family dear to me that has Marfan, and I've seen what it is like for her to live a "normal" life without being able to do a lot of the things she wants to do (such as horseback riding or going to amusement parks) due to the elevated risks of heart attack at an early age. From this challenge, ALS has already made more than enough, my small donation isn't much of an impact in the grand scheme to them, but it would be towards the other two. Reading the Article: Much of the information on the organization itself is not a surprise. You need to keep people on the pay schedule, otherwise you'll loose good employees. I think I've argued this before on a discussion here at ToTJO regarding any other charity in general (more specifically Red Cross if I remember right). So it's not shocking in the least. Drugs take a long time to test- that they abandoned something 10 years in, is neither surprising or unexpected. Sometimes you need that time to determine if it works or not. I mean, heck, look at all these different lawsuit commercials popping up about various other drugs on the market. Those were years in the making also- what would have happened if they abandoned them and tried something new? We don't know, because sometimes a business wants to try and get money off of the product they've invested in- sometimes they really do believe in the product, and then later on when the lawsuits show up, well they still may end up with more bank than if they had not tried after it. Now let's talk about those alternatives. I'm very iffy to believe in alternative medicines without the appropriate backing. So I'll reserve judgement on it until I get an opportunity to research that information further.

    • Art as Meditation? (Last post by Jamie Stick)
    • I've been doing this style of symmetrical drawing in which I start out with a simple design and mimic symmetry by drawing the same thing on both sides (or on both top and bottom). I don't think much about what I'm going to draw, I just draw. The point for me has never been about making something, but rather just be totally present in making this drawing. It was until recently that I realized that this may be a form of meditation. Anyone else do something like this? Here's one I did today: [image]
