The needed example I portray is to not compete with anyone else. I simply try to be a better me than I was yesterday.
May the Living Force guide us all well

you do not lack character, master. I agree that being a Jedi can be very lonely as there are so few of us - but the brighter each of us shines in his / her community, the more of a difference we can make, even though we don't have a lot of opportunities for personal exchange and guidance. To some extent, Jediism is an individualist's religion in that we attribute great value to the personal path and to personal development, we welcome personal ideas and values. This and other younger religions are an evolutionary step - most of the widespread religions we know today came into existence out of necessity for a the community to survive. Individualism wasn't possible and was a danger to the survival of the group as a whole. Today, in modern society, that's not really true anymore - very much to the contrary: creative individuals drive innovation and lift us to a higher level. As such, it was high time that this development is also reflected in religion. And that is the case in Jediism, to a very large extent. We're a community of individual minds, rather than a faceless blob.

Do not look for happiness outside yourself. The awakened seek happiness inside.

I agree brother. Master Carlos, you are not even close to being short on character. I look up to you for so many things. You have helped far more than I think you realize. Your character helps give me the strength I need to keep a positive attitude and keep moving forward...no matter how slow I may move at times.
May the Force be with you always Master

Carlos, as minister you made your offer of aid and guidance towards others your mission, that is a sign of a strong character. Secondly you do not lack spirit and that I find one of the most wonderful things about you. :blush: Being an individualist or pioneer seeking or learning about its own character creates opportunities where others who are fixed cannot. Make it part of your arsenal, it will not hurt you. ;)

Carlos.Martinez3 wrote: Character . It seems the more I learn the more I realize for my self it's this I am missing. The myths give examples of many possible examples . Our parents give us examples. Our peers give us examples. There are so many different examples when it comes to character that my brain can literally be lost at the search of somthing worth. The question is always asked me " so who has the right to chose those things your looking for" the answer is simple ... Me , you. Jedi character is even tougher to find friends because we are few and far between. Keep the study and the seek in your life fellow Jedi , you WILL find the character you want and... You can build that up.

So what can one person do.... Be the difference ! The NEEDED difference ... See that? Be well my Temple! May the Living Force be with y'all!


Master , you are about the last person who lacks character here ;) you are shining light and example and even in your silence your wisdom is hidden , i am proud to be your apprentice and i always will be , especially the last few months i have felt your character and it has shaped me aswell , you dont go for anything less , fight for nothing less , and you have some strong allies along the way , and so have we. And that lonely feeling we all have , feeling a bit lost , the odd one out , wanting to hide in a corner sometimes to heal , and that is ok , as long as we realise , we are no longer alone , we are loved , wanted and NEEDED , we build our own character not only on our successes , but very often on our failures , because what they really are are successes in the making. Be well , be blessed , and keep building Master ....

It has been some time since I have returned, I have been putting some of the teachings of the IP program to the level of practical application and the post this morning further pushes that point to me. We are all given calls, whispers from the universe (insert your belief). We may choose to answer these calls as Jedi particularly in the temple here we are so drawn to respond. Character we all display as one is that we are willing to answer, even though in many cases it may cost the individual much. I have seen this in all and am proud to be part of the we, the universe is one thing, not many. Spreading this knowledge, is the greatest service a being can do within the whole of the singular universe. Carlos, thank you, though I have been inactive, I have been watching while trying to answer the universes call to me; so, that I may understand what it is to be one with all and all with one. (No, I am not high......lol : ) ) In love and peace, Tim

Fighting what you cannot see, will only lead you to lash out with violence towards everyone. Know your enemy, and you may find yourself a friend.
