I like to think people live longer in places that are high in force energy. If unable to move to such a place then add things to your house or apartment that generate great amounts of force energy.

We can learn a lot about improving quality of life — and maybe even increase longevity — by studying the habits of people who live the longest.Top 5 Places Where People Live the Longest

Where in the world are the longest-lived people? Though we in the U.S. tend to think we own good health and longevity, the truth might surprise you — the small, remote island of Okinawa, Japan, is where you’ll find the world’s largest population of healthy older adults. In fact, of the five locales scientists are studying for their longevity secrets, three are islands, one is a peninsula and one is simply a spiritual oasis.

Live Long and Better
Researcher Dan Buettner, who studies these populations for the National Geographic Society, calls these long-lived pockets Blue Zones. The top five Blue Zones may be relatively isolated and scattered around the globe, but here’s what they have in common, according to the New York Times:

A cultural environment that reinforces healthy lifestyle habits like diet and exercise
Healthy social relationships and psychological well-being
People who have a cooperative spirit
People who tend to gardens
Public health that is easily accessible
Seniors are valued as members of their family and the community.

Good article. The only thing I can add to this is to find a good support system. We all have moments when help is needed and a good support system will do just that. Provide us with encouragement when it is most needed. You really don't have to walk this path alone.

I feel like there might be a specific story behind this lesson...

That was absolutely encouraging and inspiring, Master Duro. I am grateful I could read that. I remember you and also Master Scythe telling me how hard times you had... Hope all is better with you now.

Poystarous, you don't know how familiar this is to me, not especially in the Jedi Path but in everything generally. Feeling inadequate is one of the worst things ever. Anxiety does not make it easy, either. As I tried to find a solution, I started to realize how getting all things cool and light helps better than trying to hold everything in hand firmly. Just go with the flow. Do not worry about your abilities. We have different skills and different gifts, embrace them, and progress in which you think you can and need to change.

May the Force be with you all.

Hello, I think we haven't met yet. :D Nice to meet you

And so on... lot of bs we can do while being drunk. I am the *very* flirty type of drunk, for example, so I avoid drinking more than enough for a long time. However, alcohol doesn't transform us into another creature, just brings stuff out of us that are already in there, so we can actually learn a lot when cases like that happen. :P

Nira...
Thanks love.
Yes, unfortunately this gets exponentially harder!!!
That is in no form a euphemism that is the cold hard truth of it. Because the fact of the matter is the further on this journey we go the further we are pushed and the harder we are tested. Faith is funny like that and then there is the fact that the force is not without a morbid sense of humor! It's one of those things that you're just going to have to grow accustomed to if you are going to survive your Jedi career.

Nas, we have had discussions in private about this subject at decent length. Although I was and to some degree still am going through the ringer. I would like to think that we covered some this subject matter quite well. We should know that life will continue to test us, when you've crossed that line into Mastery the trials seem almost continuous.


It is a narrow and perilous road we venture as Jedi. Mainly because we have chosen such a solitary path. Even with the assistance of our Mentors and Contemporaries to help guide us through out this journey its still a lonely road we walk...

I'd like to say that having fallen off the path myself I can relate to those that have done so before I did but as my Mother used to say 'Every mind is a world of its own' even still.
Those of us that have made this commitment to the force and to the world, We hold a responsibility to ourselves and to world at large to see this path through.

We are in a very real way public servants.
It is part of the Jedi mandate to serve others as we would serve ourselves, is it not?
We are human and in this humanity we tend to get lost sometimes due to the depth of emotions and personal suffering/sacrifice involved in what we do.

I know it can be a pain in the tush (quite literally sometimes) but that is part of what being a Jedi is, Perseverance..

All this emotional pain and turmoil I have lived recently has served as a means to temper my feelings and responses to things and situations. I know I still have a very long way to go but I am determined to continue this path. I have learned so much from these teachings coupled with the pain I have lived since reaching the rank I hold. I have been humbled many times over and I am grateful for that.

I know what its like to have an apprentice quit for selfish reasons and for real life reasons..

Then I had personal reasons to back out. I never gave up though!
I couldn't even conceive of it...
I have gained so much from this place and the ways of the force that I could not leave what I have learned behind.
I trust in the force, it has never led me anywhere I didn't need to be...

May the force be with you, always
*bows*

We all have that little voice on our shoulder telling us those things. You've got to be able to listen more to the voice on the other shoulder telling us how great we are and to believe in ourselves more, as our focus determines our reality.

Our reality is the one we create with our thoughts and beliefs.

My personal experience to this is that i reached knighthood and doubted myself, i feared being a failure and i was to scared and embarrassed to reach out for help.

I look at each of us, how intellectual and excellent writers you all are and i felt uncomfortable that i was not to the same standard.
Still now i doubt myself, i fear i have forgot everything i learnt and i feel very guilty for all the work and help, each one of the masters,knights and apprentices have gave me.

True story! you either make an donkey of yourself or you look like a child that needs constant approval. Neither is a good look for an adult let alone a Jedi.

It's nice to see you lurking in the halls again Todd!
Welcome back!!!
