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.

    • Wow a lot to cover. We must master the art of peace in addition to the art of war. We achieve victory by the art of war, victory is won through strategy, strategy is derived from the art of peace. However if somebody evil threatens you or any other good innocent people with unethical force it is your duty to defend!" — Master Roshi If you think that you can be a Jedi that avoids conflict than you really are a fictional Jedi. This is the real world and just because your country might not be at war its very likely that they are the ones driving war. White Horse thank you for pointing out the prices of those guns. Its so obvious! IF YOU CAN FIND MONEY TO KILL PEOPLE YOU CAN FIND MONEY TO HELP PEOPLE As for what a Jedi should do? DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT! That much has always been clear and any Jedi that tells you otherwise doesn't understand the Force.

    • The accommodation that needs to be setup for a practising Jedi behind bars might include: 1. Access to the initiate program 2. Access to a jedi journal 3. Access to sermons This is all very easy to do with a computer and internet but I don't believe inmates are allowed either of these. I wonder if one could do all this offline, the way correspondence courses work. Make it into a self-contained book and drop it off at the prisons.

    • How To Change The World: Repetition, Ritual and Be... (Last post by Alexandre Orion)
    • Yes, Alan, I admit that the goal is not to actively go looking for the spiritual experience of the "soul" on the religious buffet. What I am cautioning against here is simply piling 'portions' of religion on a plate just to 'have some', or in the desire to feel - or appear - virtuous. 'Badly prepared meat can become poison ; well prepared poison can be medicinal.' (I don't remember who told us that) It seems to me that things may spoil quickly on the buffet -- I don't know as one can search for the soul, or even if it exists. Hell, I'm not even convinced that minds or hearts exist. Bodies might be there -- after all we do get hungry (and horny ... :laugh: ) But it feels rather that the practice of religion is like that of meditation : if it is done for something, some hoped for result other than its own sake, it is blowing into a violin. :unsure: And yes also, what you are saying about the recombination of religion and philosophy. They could never have been truly separate, except for in the social paradigm. Even dualists refer to soul as consciousness ... We'll just need to be very careful to avoid as best we can our philosophy, religion, praxis and science - now under such seemingly cautious cultivation from becoming compétitive and condescending ... As it were, we are well enough conditioned into these practices (competing and judging) that the repetition of our lessons on an even hourly basis wouldn't be too frequent. ;)
    • The Imperishable Gem (Last post by EEJim)
    • Men are born soft and supple; dead they are stiff and hard. Plants are born tender and pliant; dead, they are brittle and dry. Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible is a disciple of death. Whoever is soft and yielding is a disciple of life. The hard and stiff will be broken. The soft and supple will prevail. ~ Lao Tzu
    • Language learners (Last post by Edan)
    • Quote: The large sweeping motions in movies and wushu competitions are not the same as gong fu in practical application. I"ve found from personal experience that it becomes compacted in live combat. A high level of control, even a "natural state" of hand and arm gestures close to the body, is an insane advantage. Like the sign for "snake" or "wall", its easy to see how having a dictionaries worth of word movements to apply is like having every tool in the toolbox. Blocking especially. My father in law and fiance practice tai chi and wing chun so I know know you mean about movies, although I don't practice myself. I've never thought about the other practical applications of martial arts beyond the obvious; I learnt something new this week!
