Thank you everyone, I've gotta say, it is very refreshing to be back.
Haha the Force has a funny way of guiding you to places you weren't expecting, and it just so happens to have lead me back here. I'm sure I could tell a few stories of what I have been up to when I get the chance.
I look forward to seeing what everyone has been up to and becoming an active member again.

Greetings.
If you truly follow The Way it does not matter if you are active or not.you just miss the odds bit of wisdom . If you sit in contemplation typicaly the answers will come.although ,you may not know why at the time. Ki has this way of presenting information which seems at first to be quite obscure.

Hello, Link!

Glad to see a good number of old members coming back to us recently.

There is certainly a kind of silence in this Forum recently, and in lots of other places too, which I am not surprised about tbh, as everyone around me (in real life too) is telling me how things got complicated and busy in their lives and it takes a lot of time and energy out of them... And it's the same in my case too. So I'm pretty sure there is something in the air, heh.

Life sometimes leads us to different roads and we meet obstacles that prevent us from doing what we really *want* so but most of the times it's not in our control so there's no reason at all to feel bad about it!

The most important thing is that you spent your time away with progressing and cultivating the Jedi Path outside of the "walls" of this Temple, too, and I'm happy to read this! Maybe (if you have the time and energy) you could share your experiences and learning process with us in your Training Journal, I'm pretty sure we all could learn a lot from them!

To be clear, I am not asking the question, "why am I still a Padawan."
This isn't me complaining that I am still a Padawan, I accept this as my position of sorts. See this as an explanation of why I am still a Padawan and have not been very active in some time. You can also see this as a reminder that this is not some kind of roleplay or fan group (which the Facebook page sort of gives off... but that is a discussion for another post.).

I have been a student of the Force since the end of 2008, I began my journey at the age of 14, 11 years have gone by and I am now 26 years old. During that span my presence here has been sporadic. Although I have not been an overly active member of this community, I have never stopped learning and training. The Jedi path is a life long journey and a commitment that is more than an online persona. Real practice and application is what we should strive for. I believe that a Jedi is one who upholds and puts into action; the Code, the Creed, Tenants, and Teachings of the Jedi, as well as continually striving to better one's self to better universe.

In my time away, I have been training and getting a better understanding of living the life of a Jedi. It had been very difficult. I have learned so much about myself and the world. To learn to accept one's emotional state and find peace in that, not letting it control your actions or responses, is in itself extremely difficult. And that is just the first line of the Jedi Code!

I have a few reasons as to why I am making this post. One of which is to say to everyone I am still here and haven't abandoned the Temple or my Master. Another is that I am sorry for my absence. It is important in a community like this one to remain active when you can and to participate in the discussions to learn and share knowledge with other Jedi.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope that you find there is something in this that you can take away and learn from.

May the Force be with you.

It is pretty funny actually that science just starts to discover a lot of stuff the sages and spiritual folks have already known for ages... (But they are primitive, oh damn for God's sake. ) I mean, like I remember reading about things like plants communicating with each other or the gut being the second brain of humans, etc, etc and I'm always like "You don't saaay??"

Not a single labyrinth in my town and not sure as if there is any in my country at all. I'd love to do this meditation as its symbolics resonate with me so much and I like doing ceremonial Jedi stuff so why not... I don't fully understand your way of making a labyrinth so I'd be glad to be helped out in this :D

On the other hand, the tree method seems brilliant to me!
