I think he pops in quietly once in a while, but he's not an active presence


His focus shifted to family, which is by no means a bad thing.

I hear that. So did he go and have a bunch of kids or something?

Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.

Having found your journal, I’m sorry to tell you that you will forsure have to do the ip again brother man. Lots has changed in the past ten years. Not only has every lesson changed, but what’s expected from each lesson. Pretty much every lesson now has atleast a 500 word requirement and several are 750 words. Our training has got way more in-depth than it was it was back then. I’d also take a peek at our rules and policies as I’m sure most of them have changed in a very dramatic way.

Reguardless we are happy to have you back and hope you will decide to stay.

It means that their training falls under either jestor, or one that has trained under jestor, in this case river trained under edan, whom trained under jestor... it's a training lineage...

Haven't seen you around in some time....

And the house your referring too is how apprentices and knights trace their lineage. In my case I’m house of Orion. Meaning alexandre Orion trained my Masters masters master…..in rivers case, her lineage can be traced back to jestor

That is a link to the totjo legacy chart

Zero, I have taken notice that dear Jestor is listed with white letters in the Constellations tab indicating he has given up, but in his own house his name appears black as if he is around and doing his Jestor thingy here at the Temple.. :whistle: Could it be possible that one of the two names might need a paint brush, or am I missing some feature of this really awesome sheet? (Buy the way, it does look very awesome and sorted out!) :)

Jestor has popped in once or twice in the past cpl years…..but that’s about it for his involvement with totjo.

Hello Whyte Horse,

It's been a while. I hope you have been well, your current situation considered.
A lot has changed since you were last here. The IP has less to do with the Star Wars mythos and more to do with personal development. In fact, just about anything Star Wars has been stricken from just about all the training. They might as well call it Temple of the Personal development and book report order. LOL :lol:

All joking aside, many of those that were here are not any more. I try to log in at least once a week; but, sadly most of the old crew has moved on. The new people are have new ideas and are trying new things so a lot has changed.

You were a member before and the forums were set up differently, hence why you could post. You'll probably have to resubmit/submit application (if they even still do that) and become a member again.

I talk with Jestor more on the phone than I do here. He's good. ;)

The house thing was something brought up a long time ago but we shot it down in council to avoid cliques from forming. The new guys like cliques I guess so it got instituted. :P No, in all seriousness, I believe it is because they are less focused on the living moment and more into the history of, or where we come from.

It seems a lot of the conversations happen on Discord now. I believe you have to get invited or permission to join. Roz would be a good one to PM about that.

If you have any more questions I'll be happy to help in any way I can :)

There's a link to the Discord in the "chat" tab. Anyone can follow that and chat in a lobby and a few rooms like the pastors room and some ceremonial spaces. Once you enter the lobby, someone will verify that you have an account here on the site under the same username and you'll be given access to all of the rooms appropriate to your rank (there's something like 70 available for new accounts). Its a pretty simple process, no invite required.

I miss Jestor, he was one of the very first, if not the first person, I ever spoke with at TotJO. I do feel very grateful that he is feeling well and may the Force shine with you for keeping in touch with him, Wescli!

The information you wrote about the Temple also really helps to make better sense of what is happening as I have not yet figured everything out. :blink: If I may be so free to ask, is there a major planning of what lays ahead, and/or maybe things I should be aware of that has already changed? I did notice moderation policy, some bits of the House system, rank requirements/changes, IP changes and heard that the Apprentice path is currently under change too.. I experience some difficulty figuring out where all that information about what has changed can be found.
