    • What Are You Listening To Right Now? (Last post by Reliah)
    • Lyrics: Spoiler: When you know who you are, The darkness the light, love loves it all, Cause love has no fight, what has passed is a dream, What is not here is not what it seems, So pull yourself together now, So pull yourself together now, When you know who you are and have nothing to hide, Loves at your feet and the hands at your side, When yours ears are your words, The silence can always be heard, When you know who you are, You can't help but let go, You know no ones right, You know you don't know, The paradox becomes less absurd, As your hypnosis unwhirls, So pull yourself together now, So pull yourself together now, What's the matter with, What's the matter with, What's the matter with you, Did it crush, did it shatter? did it break or scatter? Did it tear your little heart in two? What's done is over, Yeah if you want something new, Just pull yourself together now, Just pull yourself together now, Just pull yourself together now, Just pull yourself together now, All I have is all I need, and all I need is here now
    • The Force as described by a physicist? (Last post by Proteus)
    • As long as one is so convinced they are merely what is inside their skin, the thought of death will be either a cold frightening fear of sudden nonexistence or a socially conditioned assumption based on widely misunderstood passed-down mythological stories attempting to treat and/or exploit that fear. Keep digging.
    • I think people are falling for it (Last post by Omhu Cuspor)
    • Quote: ... 9/11 traumatized me to a degree where I spent over a decade an absolute wreck of anxiety and fear of my own government. Even now that I have overcome the obsession of digging through information (and misinformation) trying desperately to learn a whole picture of "the truth", I still have bouts of anxiety. Meditation and focus on the grander scale of life over the millennia and eons before and after human existence have helped me to gain some perspective, and calm those inner obsessions. There's more in your posts in this thread, Cryojenx, with which I agree than I have time to address in a post. To echo this sentiment, though, my experience of life after 9/11 has been much like yours. For the full week after that event, I was immensely sad, recognizing that something very fundamental to the life path of all humanity had changed -- and to this day, I too harbor suspicion of the government in which I once had a fairly high degree of trust. I am experiencing similar feelings now about the quagmire in Syria. There have always been attacks and conflicts, but these events, to my eyes, are the sort of thing that would cause the movie-version Jedi to say "I sense a disturbance in the Force." Quote: ... And if it ever seems like "they" are winning (again falling into us vs. them thinking) it's only a swing of the pendulum; it always swings back around. When people do "evil" things (so to speak), it is because they are ignorant of their own true nature, and there will always be ignorance. Oh so true! And one of the things that to my eyes renders an effective, unified conspiracy among "them" is that those whose objective is more wealth and more power, at their core, are more interested in accumulating it as "me" than as "us". It seems unlikely to me that an alliance of such people beyond a superficial level would be sustained, long term. As you've said, this evil is, at its heart, ignorance of what we are at the depths of our souls. It is my fervent hope that each of us who needs it is granted a greater awareness of the Essence that shines within.
    • Importance in this Temple (Last post by BionicPianoMan)
    • Your want and desire to be apart of the community, let alone to lead, speaks of your mind over matter, your control of any fears, and your passion to share with others. I can continue with this list that all points to the same thing: you follow the Doctrine, the Teachings, the Maxims....the path. You're supposed to be here.
    • Guided Meditation - First Attempt (Last post by Tellahane)
    • pretty good actually, I'll agree it needs slowed down some, in most cases you give maybe 3-5 seconds between instructions, should probably be more like 10-15 once you have really started to let go. Individual results may vary but as you let go of spatial awareness around you your sense of time slows down too, if the guided meditation doesn't also slow down to reflect it, your brain will catch up to the time, and kinda bounce you back some like being at the end of a leash. At least in my experience, its just an opinion.
    • From time to time a poem (Last post by Edan)
    • Robert Frost - The Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. I read a different interpretation of this poem today and it has completely changed my view of it...

    • heres an article (speech by s hawking) which references einstein's theory of relativity and one of the effects it had on scientific understanding
    • Star Wars Patches (Last post by r3dleader)
    • Quote: Totally ordering some of these when you re-open! I just need to find a jacket worthy of all the patches I've been storing up... hrmm. I went with this one, because I knew that I was going to be sewing on it and most likely popping them all back off. I might keep it though, because it's pretty decent and Walmart was $20 cheaper than Amazon on it.
