Take a second, look around, find a place where what you are or do fills a hole, and go fill it. Stop waiting for the entire solution before you start. And no whining.

How, you ask? You're smart. Work it out."

The only true failure is to not even try

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.

After much reflection, I am a member of the Pure Land Rite, AKA Jediism Special Interest Group. Smile.

    • Who created Zyklon B? Fritz Haber. Know what else he did? He was a German chemist who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1918 for his invention of the Haber-Bosch process, the method used in industry to synthesize ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen gases. This invention is of importance for the large-scale synthesis of fertilizers and explosives. The food production for half the world's current population depends on this method for producing nitrogen fertilizers Interesting how that works out. So, was, science to blame? Or what people did with it? Who invented the swords? Well, who did the stabbing? Most often its individuals with there religions and myths. Articulations of realities where people think its ok to behead you or set you on fire because you dont ascribe to there specific story of an invisible man/force in the sky. You say science may be the end of us all? Well, im not so sure, given people have been killing in the name of there stories long before technology gave them more efficient means to do so. Such is a pointless argument. The man who is responsible for half the words food production also allowed story, and myth to indoctrinate him into being responsible to killing a whole lot of people. The same guy. So, lets not be pointing fingers, because we will run out quick. No one has the moral high ground in that debate.
    • Today I felt lonely... (Last post by Rickie)
    • We all go through emotional cycles, ups & downs. They will pass. We are entitled to our emotions. We just shouldn't get hung up on them one way or another. Keep living/experiencing life, keep moving on, more adventure is ahead.
    • Strenght (Last post by MartaLina)
    • Thank you for your wonderfull responses all of you and i agree with the resilience factor , for it does not really matter how often you fall but how often you get up. I am touched deeply by your sermon Zenchi , we got it good , although it does not always feel that way. And indeed , the ego can get in the way but also is neccesary to survive sometimes. May the Force be with you
    • Heaven, Hell, Re-incarnation? (Last post by Gisteron)
    • Quote: Quote: there is no telling that it is actually going to happen, likely though it may be and reasonable though it is to assume that indeed it will. Assume nothing. Every assumption is a conclusion. Every conclusion is an end, a death, if you will. All things move and evolve, including thought. Yea, don't go full woo-woo on me, sir... A conclusion is a proposition reached from given premises. An assumption is a proposition accepted (tentatively) without premises to inescapably lead to it. They are literally the opposite of each other!
    • How did you know when you were a Jedi? (Last post by Streen)
    • Quote: Quote: As the title says.... How did you know when you'd gone from non Jedi to Jedi? That is kind of a Loaded question :-p lol The quick and easy answer would be the moment I started realizing that the Fictional Movies and Stories had alot of Beliefs that I adhered to. So...15 years old? 16.... After that there was alot of up and down's due to the up and down's of the community. "Oh we adhere closely to fiction!" and "We don't give a rats Arse about the fiction!" and "Well we are REAL Jedi" and "We just do what we can to better improve ourselves" and.....well all the arguments go on and im sure most of you already know them so.... ;) 2014 when I took my Knighting Trials at the Gathering was about when I settled down and realized that I don't really care what the community says. I am Kitsu Tails, Also known as Trisskar. I am a Jedi Mom and im proud of it. :) Yes! To Kitsu Tails, you listen! (I'm not kidding, listen to her) She knows the trials of the Jedi community. She knows, as I do, that one is a Jedi when you KNOW you are.
    • a new toy for fitness (Last post by RyuJin)
    • Quote: people dont realize how demanding it is to throw combinations at a fighting pace - its tough it's been so long that i had forgotten how demanding it could be....luckily my first try with it i went easy....just did the 1 minute session...40 lights 35 hits...
    • Techwear for Jedi (Last post by Jestor)
    • Quote: Yes! I am a big fan of this idea. Betabrand used to carry more of this, but not as much now. It was often very expensive. I have a decent edc set that goes everywhere with me. Multitool, flaslights, knife, cordage, space blanket, poncho, etc. I've been thinking about an augmented set for my car. Bigger tools, first aid, stuff I could throw on in a pinch, perhaps in something like this. It often comes back to money, but I think about this often. I tell you, I search for "cop clothes" (just for window shopping), as I have access to some of their magazines, and that stuff reminds me of the 5.11 brand of clothing...
    • Rants far and wide (Last post by Cayce)
    • I've been interested in becoming a certified Yoga instructor / teacher for some time now, but the cost of Certification is insane. Most places in my area charge $2,500 to $3,000. I so hate how certifications have turned into cash grabs. Ugh.
    • A Message (Last post by 6h057)
    • Agreed. I think that for any real religious order to work, it needs to be a group of philosophers/scholars that can comfortably agree to disagree. I don't like any system that props up anyone's right to pontificate to others as if they are somehow more in tune with the mystical or have God speaking in their ear. However I have a tendency to approach life a little dudeist and inject as much Slack as is appropriate.
    • The Thing All Women Do That You Don’t Know About (Last post by carlos.martinez3)
    • I see. It takes courage to admit this. It takes wisdom to see that it's not ONLY a women problem. It's a people problem. It is sad to see hate in any form. Can we deliver the opposite? Is it possible to build, not only female but male too, instead of breaking things down. Me and my wife remove the man and woman words as often and see the heart or the person. We ALL have some sort of coping mechanism. The day we as humans stop hurting humans will be a great day, till then friends take care of each other. The ones that are closest. My own opinion, sad things make me,sad but they also allow me to hold my own closer and appreciate them better. Thanks Akkarin for this one!
    • Physical temple (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • Quote: Why not donate to the TOTJO instead? Donations are (I would think) a much higher priority being that the site needs money to stay running, rather than a physical temple that much fewer members will have the luxury to visit... Truth. Donations to the community is a far more worthy cause. I try and inform folks that there are many Jedi that could use the help more so than a physical temple. Gatherings themselves need alot of help and if folks cant even make it to a gathering...how do we expect them to make it to a temple? A gathering averages about $4,000 a year. (Community Wide / Not sure what it is for TOTJO's gatherings) $150 per person (Although that pricing has been going up) Aaand I can't find the thread that discussed TOTJO's Expenses but I know it was nearing a $500 mark per year....Jestor or Br. John would know more? I think...I know from my own web experience that it is pricey to keep a place like this up and running. And then of course there are the individual communities and Jedi such as Rosalynns Jedi Community Action group. Or those that Run for Charity. As Jedi. What we do is far more important than where we go. :)
