I think that as we travel our journeys we should also keep in mind that not only are we the hero of our own story but we are also the anti hero, the mentor, the every man, the trixter, and even the villain of others stories. We fill all these roles in our lives in different capacities if we are living our lives to the fullest. I ask you, are you filling these roles in others lives? If not, then why not?:)

This guns for hire, even if we're just dancing in the dark.

Even better - sometimes we are these themes in other paths as well. So many times that word Hero is so stuck to one definition we can sometimes forget in real life there are no capes.

The hardest thing in a modern day Jeddist life is finding their own balance of things. The romance of A Jedi Knight for me is to have that cloak or that hood and be able to be me and to be exactly what’s needed regardless of the situation. In real life ( for me) it’s that ability to stand on my own choices and “perform admirably.” My own choice- but we can - as humans - create our own character and our own balance. How do our “HEROS” act when that moment comes when they act - the way we want to- and why? What are their choices? For me - it’s the fighter that has trained and finds the solution to NOT fight any more or the sage who builds by every day wisdom and action - revealing a every day balance. We all have our own “hero’s” so I ask you Temple - what do yours do ? Is it possible to do just that ? Is it possible to learn from a myth - a story - a comic book- a bible - a way - a idea - etc etc etc....
Looking forward to what ya post.

Tuesday s post of a Monday thing

Character - a big word that can transcend many labels. Something to think about - seriously - think about that.
But how ??? Glad u asked
Ever seen...
Christian character
Mormon character
Buddhist character
Wiccan character
Heathen character
Logical character
Imaginary character
Comic book character
Dark character
Light character
Selfish character
Selfless character
Ever see animals display character
Nature display character
The list goes on...
You can find it any where ...
(labeled character) - if ya remove the label and just call it character - you can find character anywhere. Some good, some you might not like, but it’s all there; like a huge buffet table and you have two good hands for two good plates.

Take what ya want - take what ya need: some of us over grab, some of us under plate and yet - some of us try new things. Some of us are scared to..we never really have a stopping point. We do that, on our own...So - I hope this a a gentle reminder - what ya gunna get ? What ya gunna try ? U full? You good ? Or are you like me and just wanna see what all is available ? Got a specific taste you’re looking for ? Come sit at my table and let’s share ! Force be with y’all!

I think about the word character and see the word "actor" in there. Part of us and our character is our actions. Be the actor you want to be and realize you have control of that. I think that's where we were when we were trying to judge people by the content there of.

Just some thoughts for the table.

Much Love, Respect and Peace,
Kobos

Joseph Campbell said one time : Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.
Some heavy stuff for a Monday. What ya bringing to life? What does your song ... sound like? My little brother sent me a link yesterday of some major rock songs being played in major chords as opposed to minor chords. Changed the whole - being of the things. Some times our songs can change my a mere change of a chord or a idea or even a focus shift. Hmmm our choices can make a tragedy into something joyful and triumphant. Just something to think about. Force continue to be with you as we all seek share and serve it!

That has been one of my favorite quotes for a long time.

You are worth value. I saw a video of a preacher tossing a 20 dollar bill around asking some one if they wanted it after all the silliness and then he reminded the crowd - after all that - it hasn’t lost it value. What a simple little reminder of something so heavy. Life takes us on ups and downs and even does a number on us some times that can leave us feeling like... well crap. On the sad days and the bad days the happy and the glad days ... your value is still the same. In you is still that potential as a human being to be able to accomplish and overcome and shine and be the example you choose to be... regardless of what’s up with the what’s up. There’s a old saying ... regardless of the sky , the sun shines behind it. I’m not saying everything sunshine and rainbows but it’s up to you - your focus. Remember - no matter the sky - no matter what’s going on - your still A Jeddist - your still a human being - your still the one your story is about - remember that ! You are the Hero- in your story - you are what brings the story to life. Fill it !
