    • Temple Of The Jedi Order: Church Of Jediism - Ital... (Last post by Malmu89)
    • Traduzione e adattamento della pagina: www.templeofthejediorder.org/40-informat...er-church-of-jediism Questa non è una comunità di fans/giocatori di ruolo di Star Wars, ma una Chiesa con una vera e propria Religione, chiamata Jedismo. Gli Jedi iscritti in questo sito non sono gli stessi di quelli ritratti nei film di Star Wars; Gli Jedi ritratti nei film di Star Wars sono personaggi di fantasia che esistono solo all'interno dell'universo letterario e cinematografico. Gli Jedi di cui si discute in questo sito, invece, sono persone reali, di questo mondo, che vivono o hanno vissuto la loro vita secondo i Principi del Jedismo, la vera Religione Jedi. I seguaci Jedi, i Ministri e i Leader, abbracciano il Jedismo e credono veramente e profondamente nei suoi insegnamenti. Il Jedismo non si focalizza sul mito e sulla finzione cinematografica di Star Wars, ma sulle questioni della vita reale e filosofiche che sono alla base del mito di Star Wars (la vera fonte del mito). Se vuoi diventare uno Jedi, se sei in cerca di una formazione o se sei solo interessato a conoscere e discutere sulla Forza, siamo qui per te. Noi crediamo nella Pace, nella Giustizia, nell'Amore, nell'Apprendimento/Formazione e nella Benevolenza: E' improbabile che questo sia in conflitto con altre religioni, credenze e tradizioni. Uno Jedi del Tempio dell'Ordine Jedi (TOTJO) segue la nostra Dottrina, anche se tutti sono invitati a registrarsi e partecipare come ospiti. Se desideri diventare un Membro ti preghiamo di Registrarti e di seguire la Procedura/Istruzioni. Se desideri continuare (o iniziare) la tua comprensione del Sentiero Jedi allora puoi iniziare il Programma di Iniziazione. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I CREDI JEDI - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Gli Jedi credono: - Nella Forza e nel valore intrinseco di tutta la vita al suo interno; - Nella Sacralità di una persona Umana. Ci opponiamo all'uso della tortura e alle punizioni inusuali e crudeli, inclusa la pena di morte; - In una Società governata e fondata da Leggi ispirate dalla Ragione e dalla Compassione, e non dalla Paura e dai Pregiudizi!; - In una Società che NON DISCRIMININA sulla base dell'Orientamento Sessuale, o dalle circostanze della nascita come il sesso, l'etnia o l'origina nazionale; - Nell'Etica della Reciprocità, e di come i concetti morali non sono assoluti, ma variano in base alla cultura, alla religione e col passare del tempo; - Nell'influenza positiva che ha la crescita spirituale e la sua consapevolezza nella società; - Nell'importanza della libertà di coscienza e di autodeterminazione all'interno della religione, della politica e delle altre strutture; - Nella SEPARAZIONE tra Religione e Governo e nella libertà di parola, di espressione e di associazione. CHE LA FORZA SIA CON TE! - Tempio Jedi -
    • Cultural Appropriation (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • was it highly unnecessary because it was irrelevant to the topic or because you were personally offended by it? if it was irrelevant but you had enjoyed hearing him say it, would you make it a point to note that it was highly unnecesary? if it was relevant to the topic is it apporpriate to view it in terms of being you being personally offended? and since it was his video stating his opinion does it matter if someone else thinks it was unnecessary? would you forbid him from saying what he wants to say in his own video blog because you feel his views are offensive or unecessary?
    • The World (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • if you develop an excellent character you will give an excellent gift if you develop a poor character you will give a poor gift it is as simple and as difficult as that the only thing i would add is that there is the obvious exception with things like discoveries or inventions or certai types of achievements but for most people, the influence we have on the world will be a direct consequence of our character running around "saving the world" without developing character is the most egotistical thing a person can do its based on the assumption that they are qualified to even recognise the real problems of the world much less to actually do something about them such people invariable demand conformity to their solutions of a type that serve to exacerbate the problem or at best trade it for another whereas character results in the humility needed to rethink ones assumptions on a regular basis and to change ones ideas and behavior when it is apparent that such change is appropriate character is the trait which gives us the perspective to realize that such change can be appropriate; without it we would almost never question that we are right even when our behavior doesnt get the results we want it also leads one to treating other people with respect - much more than does the crusade to "save" the world - which, without character, really means to change it to meet ones personal expectations and standards, which is not only arrogant and impossible, but often destructive
    • Making of a Jedi Warrior (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • a common translation of JUSTU is technique a common translation of DO is way ju is basically translated as gentle and aiki is translated as harmony so ju jutsu would be the techniques of gentleness and ju do would be the Way of gentleness aiki jutsu are the techniues of harmony and aiki do the Way of harmony the important distinction here is not about which style to train in one may walk a JUTSU path with WAY mentality or study a DO system with a TECHNIQUE perspective the importance is in understanding the distinction between the ideas and the function that each serves in the development of the warrior archetype to be good with a rifle or with a scalpel is a soldiers skill or a surgeons skill these are the JUTSU of a soldier or a surgeon and represent types of personal excellence to be fully commited to the development of ones skills and to being of the greatest service to ones field and through ones field, society or the rest of the world these represent the Do or the Way and are matters of personal character character in and of itself represents a type of skill and will invariable lead to the development of further skills skill by itself only perpetuates itself so the foundations of a solid warrior are first and foremost issues of character each individual has a unique blend of natural talent/potential and developed skill/competence in any given area the bridge between the two is character character is a result of commitment to excellence and respect for essential human dignity in the long run, the most effective people - in or out of the military - are the ones with the greatest commitment and the finest character it is an honor to follow a person of exceptional character, whatever the occupational field and it is shameful to follow a person of low character under any circumstances so the Way of the warrior is to cultivate personal character and dignity and the Jutsu of the warrior is to cultivate personal excellence and competence it is the love of dignity which translates these into the actual WARRIOR ethos because neither skill nor character per se result in courage but when character is infused with dignity it will not back down or give in to that which assaults dignity this is the type of courage that changes the world Dr King is an example of a totally non violent interpretation of the warrior archetype what made him remarkable is that he had that blend of character and competence and love of dignity he was not at war with anyone or anything- to think he was at war with racism or "the system" is to misunderstand his was a warriors mission of empowerment the kind of empowerment that only comes from the love of dignity
    • No inner monologue (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Do you have a process for practicing it? I think I reversed engineered myself.... ...having learnt all I could about flying during schooling years, after leaving school I watched Macross Plus (and this was about the time I was getting into spirituality more) where one of the main characters had to fly the aircraft using his brain, the jet would read his mind. As opposed to Clint Eastwood's 'Firefox' where he actually had to think instructions in an inner monologue for the jet to read his thoughts, this one actually hooked into his somatotopic mapping so he could feel the airflow over the fuselage like a breeze, moving his hands actuated the jets main wing control surfaces etc. He'd 'fly' the jet with his mind, not tell it what to do - point being it would be faster perhaps making it more instinctive while also shifting the cognitive load from 'vehicle operation' to purely situational awareness and tactical decision making. Sounds fun and all that, but the point being to reverse engineer the existing understanding, so perhaps Frued was onto something saying it was a primitive pre-ego feeling. So I like to map out space as a landscape of energy, basically elevation data, as a static environment and then overlay an understanding of movement in physics terms to anything and everything else. This then relates back to the Dao De Jing for me for seeing things as they are, which allows a limited application of past and future to associate some type of nature for decision making purposes. It's quite interesting to completely dispel all preconceptions about things in this way, but has to be done slowly I think so the ability to control it remains available to shape which things become decontextualized and which don't. Another way is to imagine everything as being one color, where things merge into each other and cease to have useful labels. So all in all I do wonder if it somehow relates to the Vajrayana concepts about 'Clear Light' and it being some nature of primordial wisdom. So it's a mix of those two approaches for me, and then using the 'Force' can be applied also to those things. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%96sel_(yoga)

    • TotJO (Last post by Adder)
    • Yea, there are Jedi here who work with dark and light, and shadows and grey concepts, but like with a lot of the fiction - its not forced here onto people to become attached to something from the fiction (except maybe the 'Force' but that is open to interpretation?). I tend to view TOTJO as being less prescriptive in its approach for Jedi, where some other groups tend to focus on specific elements of the fiction to define their approach (sometimes for functional reasons and sometimes just for identity issues), we let the individual use what they want to work with, so long as it does not conflict with the spirit of the doctrine. The IP, Degree and Clerical Programs here do provide specific guidance, but its not based in the fiction so much, rather its to assist Jedi in how to best experience their Jedi path without actively prescribing to them what that path should be. This to me is the most inclusive method, as it not only allows people from other groups to enjoy the Temple, but it does still allow for like minded Jedi to form working groups or projects along cultural or functional approaches anyway. Thus the Temple grows based on the members interests and activity, rather then their adherence to its particular interpretation of the fiction (because we don't prescribe it). That's my personal view on it, hope I didn't confuse the issue for you :huh:
    • speed of light (Last post by Adder)
    • Still pondering the OP, I guess the relativity aspect is a way to move things from A-B at ultra high speeds, as in if you fly really fast here on Earth, your speed is (for this most practically) relative to the air mass - how hard your pushing the air out of the way (to move). The speed of sound's sonic boom is all about how the air handles that type of impact. Previously the design and construction of aircraft had failed before the air's uniformity had. In space obviously there is no air, so I wonder what other types of fields you might impact which associate some concept of relative motion..... gravity, radiation, dust!? So how do we design a 'spacefoil', something which creates not lift to defeat gravity like an aerofoil, but vacuum to defeat relative motion.... I think it might need to be a variation of a Star Trek transporter which operates a disassembly field to the front, turning all matter into energy, which then zap's it out the rear into a reassembly field. Overcoming the relativity by turning everything to energy and moving it through 'vehicle' at the speed of light!! I think what I'm saying is they did not need to blow up the Earth in the Hitchhikers Guide, they just needed to pass through it :woohoo:
    • Wearable Body weights (Last post by Rob78)
    • You could try a total gym xl, you use your own body weight for resistance, very good for toning and strengthening muscles, can also be used to increase agility.
    • Rants far and wide (Last post by Proteus)
    • Don't let me feel too wanted... or trusted... or needed now... we wouldn't want that. That would actually match what you say I am to you... and that would actually make sense... we can't have that now, can we? No. Of course not.
    • What it's like to teach evolution at the Universit... (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • this is just over five minutes and helps to explain whats going on this is not representative of the entire religious experience either of americans in general nor necessarily of southerners specifically but it IS a reality of the religious climate within a portion of the american society
    • The Art of Self-Discipline (Last post by Matsukaze)
    • Self discipline to me is the ever- flowing stream of philosophy and spirituality. When the stream comes across an object or obstruction, it passes around it, not through it. Stress is trying to go through it. Discipline is going around it and maintaining the stream. Hope that gives perspective!
