Very important to affirm/reaffirm who we are and what we are about in these times. Do or do not, there is no try. Be or be not, there is no neutral.

Is it duel faith? For some Jediism is a religion, while others it is something akin to a role.

To give an example:

Can you be a a Christian Jedi may really look like 2 different questions:

1) Can you be a Christian-Jediism Follower

Vs.

2) Can you be a Democrat (Jedi) and Christian?

It’s not always duel faith. The Jedi Path is treated as a philosophy in the community as equally as it is a religion.

That's the thing. When God is seen as everything then that would include, well everything. I like to use the blind men and the elephant. Each feels only a part and mistakes that part for the whole. Science tells us that all matter is made of the same basic things and that we are made of the same materials that stars are made of and that we are star stuff. God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, all parts of the whole. Call it what you will, the Force, energy, Chi, Ki, Prana...

Whatever gets you through the night. Some focus on the sunrise and the next day that always comes, others focus on night itself until the next day but still they focus on the next night which is coming. Still, our thoughts determine our reality because it reflects our belief systems and how we feel we must react to everything.

Even in these times there are people who think they can't go on, some who are thriving, and others who are engaged somewhere between the two extremes. Water seeks it's own level. That level for us is how we really feel about ourselves, deep down, in our center. All based on how we interpret our experiences, past, present, and perceived futures.

Morning Meditation

On this new day, I arise to the path of the Jedi.
I open my awareness to the Living Force.
Gathering in the energy for this day, I inhale deeply the bright waterfall of light shining down and through me. Blooming within and beyond me.
I am sustained by the Force.

I open my awareness to the Unifying Force.
The Will of the Force guides me today, flowing out from me into the future.
As the memory of yesterday is the foundation of today, so my actions today become the foundation of tomorrow.
The power of my actions today is central to the universe of my tomorrow. I am a child of this universe.
I am unified by the Force.

I breathe, empowered by the Force to arise as a Jedi.

What I mean is.. Four people standing North , South , East and West

One will see a 6 one will see a 9 the other two possible a curtain hook one up one down. So yes everyone sees it in a slightly different way but it is still the same shape no matter where you look at it from .

Greetings
With repsect , It would seem then if you are a Christian Jedi Then Jesus would also be the Son of the Force ???
Perhaps you could be good enought to explain how that could be, because I do not.

I think those of Duel Faith have doubt and are not sure where they are. I know for an absolute fact there is no faith of any discription on a battle field.
Some may wonder why I now favour the Dark side. There are no grey areas no ifs buts maybes could bes it is what it is No nagatives no positives it just is.
This may seem an aggresive but I I se main stream religion as nothing more than bullying and having control over the masses

Ambient Meditation Music: https://star-wars.ambient-mixer.com/jedi-temple

This is a silent (not to be spoken out loud) meditation practice of medium difficulty. Please be sure you have some experience in visualization and breath work before attempting.

Time to practice: 3 to 5 minutes to start

Sit with your spine straight and your shoulders relaxed. Bold text should be thought with firm intentions. Parenthesis should be visualized using the Inner Universe as well as your energetic body overlapping your physical body.



From the dimensions of my body and my mind,
(Visualize a 3-Dimensional Cube floating just in front of your heart and 3-Dimensional Pyramid floating in front of your face)
To the flows of my energy and my soul.
(Visualize white and black threads weaving through these shapes. Note their patterns and density)

Force that creates and sustains me,
(Feel your personal connection to the Force like gravity holding the shapes and connecting them into a larger pattern. Let the image flow.)
I open to the Flows of Light.
(Visualize dark threads that have no more purpose with you fading into light)

As I breathe in, I am sustained.
(Feel the Cube and the Pyramid pulse with your personal connection to the Force, charging the threads of light connected to your cube and pyramid)
As I breathe out, I am unified.
(Feel the light threads pulse out from your shape into all the connected shapes)

(Continue to repeat these pulsed breaths, one inhale and one exhale, on a ring of meditation beads. If you start to feel dizzy, end the practice and try again after a full day of rest. End by meditating on the following verse.)

The Daughter has called me into being,
The Son is prepared to gather my bones as I return.
May the Balance of the Father be sustained.


Take a moment to note the following:
How big were the cube and pyramid? Were the close to you? Did the move or rotate at all? What colors were they?

How many strands of Light were there in each shape? How many strands of Darkness? Were they focused out of one area, or many? How did they change over the course of the meditation?

How did meditating on the Daughter, the Son and the Father affect your shapes and the strands that ran through them?

Only each individual can really determine if they can be both and how they choose to be both. Unfortunately there is not a specific or clear cut answer. But I imagine so.

I believe this is even more important because of the times we are living in. The lines are being drawn. Either stand up for the light or the dark, there is no neutral now a days. If you don't have a positive source to believe in, find one. Don't let the darkness consume you.
