    • There is no Death (Last post by Streen)
    • I couldn't agree more, Adder. It seems we have a little something in common, because I've had a near-death experience myself, and as you said, scenarios play out in the most complex and perplexing ways. Not particularly pleasant, I can say with certainty. Unlike most reports that have that "light at the end of a tunnel" effect, mine was more like a nightmare that I couldn't wake up from. This, I've concluded, was just my mind manifesting what I feared about the afterlife, and didn't actually "die" at all. Still, that whole experience has more or less cured me of any fear of death. It's really not something I can express in words.
    • Visions (Last post by scott777ab)
    • Quote: Anyway, as of late, I keep having these dreams related to the up and coming civil war in the US. It's not like you might think; not like Red Dawn or any movie stuff. It's more like Germany under Hitler. Neighbours snitching on one another... checkpoints... papers... etc. Unlikely
    • No Emotion, eh? (Last post by Wescli Wardest)
    • I think that is a good exercise for anyone to help them get a handle on what it is they are experiencing, when they experience it and why. I would like to break this line down and examine then piece by piece. Then, perhaps I may gain a better understanding of them or what might have been the intended meaning. Emotion, yet peace. Emotion is a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. Quote: Emotion 1 a obsolete : disturbance b : excitement 2 a : the affective aspect of consciousness : feeling b : a state of feeling c : a conscious mental reaction (as anger or fear) subjectively experienced as strong feeling usually directed toward a specific object and typically accompanied by physiological and behavioral changes in the body Yet * up until the present or a specified or implied time; by now or then. * still; even (used to emphasize increase or repetition). Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by the lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all. Quote: Peace 1 : a state of tranquility or quiet: as a : freedom from civil disturbance b : a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom <a breach of the peace> 2 : freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions 3 : harmony in personal relations 4 a : a state or period of mutual concord between governments b : a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity 5 —used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell A state or period of mutual concord between governments… could that be governing dynamics? The antonyms of emotion are: Stoicism, Insensibility, Rationality, Reason, Indifferences. So could we assume that “freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions” and “harmony in personal relations” could be the governance between say… emotion and reason? This would lead me to believe that what that line of the code is referring to is being in harmony/balance with reason and emotion; neglecting neither. Experiencing both and existing in both but letting neither control you the person or your thoughts or actions. We have emotion for many good reasons. We have developed rational thought for many good reasons. We are able to choose what to act on; what to think and how to feel… and to be complete I would think we need them all. And to be closer to understanding the all I would think that we need to be at peace with the tools we are given. Are experience as complete individuals depends on this I think.
    • Why a Jedi Knight ? (Last post by MikeBudo)
    • Greetings Each Bows I can't take to much credit for this as Some of it is based on the thoughts of a Martial Arts Instructor but some of what he said I thought applicable here in TOJO. Also the guide and philosophy I live by is not made up by me it s a combination of other works. To be honest I wasn't to sure what the reaction to the post would be. I am pleased and humbled by the responses so far. It would seem that the right balance has thus far been achieved. We are are individuals with our own views and if just one word makes a slight difference to just one person it would have still been worth wile doing. That was in fact something that Master Br John said to me quite some time ago :) Have a happy day :)

    • Quote: I think the topic may be straying a bit from the actual content of their site though. :P Perhaps, but I think healthy discussion is always good.
    • The Nazis (Last post by Whyte Horse)
    • Quote: 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. ;) ) Well, there was a quote that said most classified information can be deduced by connecting the dots. I used to be one of those people that dismissed as a conspiracy theory anything that didn't have solid proof. It turns out that the majority of them were true. The Snowden leaks gave us proof of things that were thought to be science fiction. So I'm just going to connect the dots and deduce the classified info.
    • 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.
