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.

    • South Korean Ferry "Sewol" Sinks (Last post by Jamie Stick)
    • Quote: The ferry, carrying mainly school students, was travelling from the port of Incheon, in the north-west, to the southern resort island of Jeju. Four people are now said to have died and dozens of others have been hurt. South Korean officials had earlier said that 368 people had been plucked to safety, but later said there had been a counting error. They have now revised down the number rescued to 174. Taken from the BBC Asia article. This just hurts my heart. Another report that I read, but don't have the link to, suggests that this may have been a captain's incompetency. The regular ferry captain was on leave of some sort and the captain of this ferry was a temp.
    • Visions (Last post by Alethea Thompson)
    • Okay, I can see where you're going with that, Whyte Horse. I think it's more a matter of how do you deal with the information you are getting from these visions. For some, they will recluse and ignore the outside chaos, because it simply is not where they need to be. For others it is joining the fight against such things they see as detrimental to society. I would be curious to know, what does one do when they have visions which help interpret what they are witnessing and the cycle it is flowing in...
    • The Nazis (Last post by Locksley)
    • I can respect a healthy mistrust of the government - of any government. Governments should be held accountable to their people in all respects and at all times, and a people should never become complacent in their regard for the government they have elected to power. I can also agree that a massive portion of this, and other, countries have allowed just that. However, that said, let us look at things as neutrally as possible. It is my concerned opinion that in order to stand any chance of ascertaining the truth in matters such as this (where all the pieces involved are incredibly complicated and difficult to fathom without several degrees in geo-politics and governmental law), the interested observer should do his or her best to remove his or her own beliefs, fears, etc., as far as possible from the situation under observation. I point to this quote in the article posted above: "Snowden, addressing the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, said he did not believe the NSA was engaged in 'nightmare scenarios,' such as the active compilation of a list of homosexuals 'to round them up and send them into camps.' But he did say that the infrastructure allowing this to happen had been built. " Why is the infrastructure in place? That is a valid question, and locating valid proof of this infrastructure should be the next step in this line of inquiry, but I believe that jumping to any conclusion regarding something like this is in itself a dangerous road to follow. That road leads us into ambiguity, uncertainty, fear, paranoia, and a sharp disregard for the importance of fact. Indeed it seems to me to be in the opposite direction that a Jedi, or any concerned critical thinker, should be applying their energies. Follow the story if it concerns you, but follow it dispassionately; with resolve, but not with haste or dogmatic fervor. (Not that anyone was or is - I'm just preachin' here. ;) )
    • Jediism... Religion, Chioce or Philosophy.... (Last post by Salvazor)
    • I think that Jediism can be any or all of those things, I definitely see it as a philosophy or a social and ethical system to live your life by. It can function as a religion in that it can perform similar functions such as marriages and offering a world view. Although their is no deity in Jediism just the force, Buddhism and Taoism on a philosophical do not have a monotheistic god to worship, I would defiantly say that Jediism is a religion, for me a way of life.
    • The Order of the Good Death (Last post by Edan)
    • Find here: www.orderofthegooddeath.com/ Their mission is: Quote: The Order of the Good Death is a group of funeral industry professionals, academics, and artists exploring ways to prepare a death phobic culture for their inevitable mortality. It was founded in January 2011 by Caitlin Doughty, a mortician and writer in Los Angeles, CA. The Order is about making death a part of your life. That means committing to staring down your death fears- whether it be your own death, the death of those you love, the pain of dying, the afterlife (or lack thereof), grief, corpses, bodily decomposition, or all of the above. Accepting that death itself is natural, but the death anxiety and terror of modern culture are not. I think it's a great idea, although I've only heard of it through Twitter, and their blog is an interesting read so I thought I'd share.
    • iPhone Calmness Apps (Last post by Edan)
    • I use Insight Timer. (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co...ghtsix.zentimerlite2) Plays gongs at the beginning and end of a period of time so you can time your meditation. It has other things but that's all I use it for.
    • Kids react to gay marriage (Last post by Edan)
    • I could've sworn the news guy on the radio this morning said one in ten teenagers in the UK have bought a cassette tape. I don't even know where'd you get them now; cds yes, vinyl yes, but cassettes? (see here: www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-22533522) It's weird how things go around.
