"If you think it is important to know about yourself only because I or someone else has told you it is important, then I am afraid all communication between us comes to an end. But if we agree that it is vital that we understand ourselves completely, then you and I have quite a different relationship, then we can explore together with a happy, careful and intelligent enquiry.

I do not demand your faith; I am not setting myself up as an authority. I have nothing to teach you - no new philosophy, no new system, no new path to reality; there is no path to reality any more than to truth. All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."~Krishnamurti~

Hello to all. Of the best known religions Buddhism is the one I identify with most but I have never felt completely at one with all aspects of it and it's various schools of thought. After only a few days as a member of TOTJO and having only dipped my toe in the initiates program I already know I have finally found the right path for me. I would like to declare myself a member of the Pure Land Rite and look forward to learning more from this community.

    • Yeah we had to replace all 59 as well.....hated it,some of that crap was hard to remove...had to come up with creative ways of running wire, the only time I ever failed a qc was if I was called in to finish someone else's job, and it was always their work that caused the fail but I'd get back charged for it...the worst being a driveway bore someone started and left...they tore up the whole front yard and I had to resod it :angry: I don't think I had anyone in the airforce or marines...I joined the navy because it had the best benefits, and the seals...I took the nuclear technician exam and only failed by 2 points...the first time I did the seals entrance test I failed the 500meter swim but passed everything else...so I spent time learning how to swim using the frogkick and passed the swim test, but got into trouble, court martialed, spent time in max security, then got the boot...which of course negated all the benefits that drew me in :(
    • Catholic Church (Last post by Revan Falton)
    • I have been a Catholic all of my life, raised Catholic, my parents were originally Baptist and Nazarene converts. During my teen years I lost my faith, going honestly down a very dark path, including spiritually. I was very angry, even when it was not justified. I eventually found God again, through my own path (Before it was mostly religion being forced down my throat). In the end we all have to find our path in life. My personal beliefs though, I do not see why the Jediism and Catholicism can not co-exist. I personally find most of the teachings go hand in hand. Now, to the Catholic violence in the past. We must keep in mind that yes, there was terrible violence done by the Church, in the name of God. However, as Catholics we must closely look and study the teachings of God, as humans are very flawed creatures. That is why the violent acts took place, it was the leadership and the obedience of miss guided humans. In every instance in the bible, Jesus taught peace. Even when he was being taken before Pontius Pilate from the garden, his disciples were ready to fight. He could have easily used to disciples, or even his Angels in heaven to quickly end the threat to his life. However, he was true to his teachings, and again used peace.
    • FAQ Update (Last post by Brenna)
    • Quote: Moderators are Security Officers.... Wescli was Security before he was Council.... As was I... The wording of the FAQ is wrong.... Forum Mods ARE security... This does include Council... As most of Council are Global Moderators... There are only 4 Admin, we are the last line, but, we will ban on the word of a forum mod.... But, we have other things to do, and it is seldom a ban, temporary or permanent, is needed.... Does that help? :) Yes, thanks.
    • Buddha and the Cat (Last post by Khaos)
    • Even humans, without food source, etc, turn on each other, devolve to violence, looting, etc. This has been seen in many instances, hurricane Katrina being one, but there are examples all through out time all over the world. Rousseau said that society is only 3 meal away from revolution.
    • Coincidence and Synchronicity (Last post by Rickie The Grey)
    • Quote: Is it somewhere written that you have to belief in synchronicity to belief in the Force? Nope and I doubt it never will be. I have to say this again...you have to feel if it's right or not. that's all I got and that is what I work with. Everyone else....I don't know, it's up to them.
    • The Three Tenets (Last post by Goken)
    • Quote: A fool that knows that he is a fool, is more wise than a fool who thinks he is wise - Siddhartha Gautama ca. 450 vC. - ca .370 vC "Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?" Couldn't help it. B)
    • Temple of the Jedi Order on Mormon Discussion (Last post by Learn_To_Know)
    • Sir Akkarin I cannot commend you enough for such an excellent job well done on that podcast. (If public praise bothers you stop reading now, haha). You were eloquent, knowledgeable, personable, reasonable, wise and more. I enjoyed listening to every second of it and you did such a fantastic job representing this awesome Temple. As you may or may not remember my story, I grew up Mormon and spent the majority of my life in that religion so this venue you spoke in with a Mormon podcast held particular interest to me. I remember how difficult it was for me in leaving Mormonism and what a weight off my shoulders, what a relief it was to find this Temple and be a part of it. Thanks again for representing our Temple so well. That was good stuff! MTFBWY, LTK
    • Article: What if Marriage were Temporary? (Last post by Aqua)
    • Quote: That "you" was rhetorical and reflection is ment a personal thing for the individual to find answers in themselves for themselves. If going into a "marriage" tempoary or otherwise commitment is something to think about and share with the other half so you're on the same page. No offense taken. Admire... :blush: You're too kind. How a language barrier can extract.. truly wonderful, You're too kind to, seeking answers in myself.. you speak book volumes of wisdom :) I will remember when I get the opportunity of marriage.
    • Dream job? (Last post by crystale)
    • One point is the urgency: I opine that: We all,specially young people (with full energy that need to be canalized) we all need patience. We have more chances of discover things around us if we are in armony and peace. Challenges physically and intellectually are all around us in our society all the time With much attention we can make a study of our place and how we can insert our help to others. Maybe you can't to start in adminstrative works, but you can help to people that need help in one area. An area that you know (Some voluntary or less remunerated work can to add experience) Be nice...and available... When you are in a place in universe ... this place can to conduce to other doors... We can plan some things. But we ignore the future in details... One very important teaching is the teaching of the life More that papers,(papers also have their importance) but more than papers, we have the posibility to be nice persons One great carpenter can to build a nice and expensive chair, but maybe also can to build excelent and nice dog house Challenges physically and intellectually are all around us in our society... and many oportunities, maybe hidden...we can wait the singular chance in middle of the apparently ordinary.. And time is time,(maybe dont need to think that time is a thing that you can to lose...always (whatever you do)take time,so... ¿you maybe prefer in middle your preparation,and study (take some time for fun) :woohoo: Important is to be happy in present and not just wait future (balance) words of Ryujin : ", do what you love " Is wisdom or in other way: do not make things without love B)
    • The Shadow (Last post by RyuJin)
    • I had to figure all that out the long difficult way, a long time ago, and it's what I've been telling others ever since... We do have a lesson in the degree forums that uses shamanic practices to find you shadow self and your inner child...
    • Books for Free (Public Domain) (Last post by Akkarin)
    • Quote: I've posted some of these on my wall previously, but I think they deserve a thread, and as an avid book collector this is quite close to my heart. There are a lot of books out there that are now in the public domain but you might find sites like Amazon still charging for printed or kindle copies of them. Below are some websites where you can find these public domain books: Books Should Be Free Project Gutenberg Global Grey (This one is a bit easier to look through than the first two and has some interesting stuff, especially for religion, philosophy, history and occult subjects) Feedbooks Authorama (Perhaps a nice mod could sticky this?.... maybe, maybe :) ) Each of those links was added to the library: http://www.templeofthejediorder.org/library Thank you.
