It would be interesting to see who else would be interested in understanding how spirit energy effects us and works in our lives.

To be more specific, darkside training which is different from Sith training which is a type of DS training, is usually not focused on, because mastery of Jedism would be working towards mastery of the light side which could be translated as mastery of positive force energy, mastery of always being able to see and strive for a positive attitude in ones self, ones life, and others.

Movies and TV often see dark side as simply evil, something to be avoided and destroyed when possible. But in reality I see mastery of the dark side as mastery of ones passions and desires. You embrace the dark side in order to understand the aspects you hate about yourself and instead of fighting yourself or hiding from yourself, you use them in the highest ways possible.

We all have demons that we can either try to ignore or understand how they influence us and every aspect of our life. They are teachers also. We can't be free of them until the lesson has been learned.

Good question and it has been touched upon a few times in these forums.

Animism comes up most often when discussing dreams and there meaning as this tends to be the easiest way for spiritual energy, guides, and the Force in general, to make known their presence and advise us.

It's usually covered as advance training because most students have their hands full mastering the basic doctrine and integrating regular practices like meditation into their lives. Along with mastering the darker aspects of the self which can cause a lot of grief, pain, and even illness, in our lives until we have come to understand, accept, and forgive that part of ourselves.

Welcome Veran. Please tell us about the temple in California. Links would be good also as we're always interested in the history of our students.

You'll be given Initiates level access so feel free to look around and ask questions.

Here are the links to the study materials.

Please follow the information on what you should do next.


http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... s/article.php?storyid=129

Once your membership has been updated to initiate, please create a training journal by posting in the Jedi Training Journals area of our forums. In your training journal your first post should be to re-introduce yourself, tell us what brought you to our temple, what you hope to learn here, and why you want to become a Jedi. Your training will be used as your main thread for posting. Even when promoted please continue to use the same journal as it makes it easier to review your posting history. You are encourage to post in the other forums you will have access to as you feel the need to contribute to other posts.

To complete the Initiate's requirements for Apprenticeship, you will need to complete the following:

Meditating on and describe, in a line-by line analysis format, The Jedi code, The Jedi creed, The 3 Primary Tenants of Jediism, The 16 Teachings of the Jedi, and The 13 Vows of the Jedi.

In this analysis, please include your current understanding of the line being analyzed and, if you wish to go the extra mile, how you can/are work(ing) to implement this understanding in your day-to-day life. Please be as elaborate and as thorough as possible, relating any experiences that you have had with them. Please pace yourself with these works, and remember that this is not a race. This is about the journey, and not the destination. This is how you will come to know us, and how we will come to know you. You are not under any deadline to complete this aspect of your journal.

The Jedi Code:
http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... s/article.php?storyid=562

The Jedi Creed:
http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... s/article.php?storyid=563

The 3 Primary Tenets of Jediism:
http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... s/article.php?storyid=561

The 16 Teachings of the Jedi:
http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... s/article.php?storyid=560

The 13 Vows of the Jedi:
http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... s/article.php?storyid=559

Once again welcome and may your journey continue to be a great one!

Perhaps a better question would be, what have those who have gotten or are receiving Sith training getting out of it? Has it changed the quality of life for them? Helped solved problems? Created problems? Or what?


One thing I was thinking is that active members should receive some sort of acknowledgement for such dedication.

Hey Mike, you are correct that Jedi are based on Samurai path of the warrior. It's also based on Joseph Campbell's 'The Hero's Journey.' Part of that journey would be represented by going into the cave.

The cave represents the dark side of ourselves, and the need to make peace with our darker natures. Until that's done, it will dominate our lives on a subconscious level as we try to suppress it rather then deal with and master it. Manifesting all kinds of problems and stress in our day to day activities.

We can't really move on with our lives as a part of us stays stuck at some traumatic point in time which is usually suppressed. So the hero is tempted and tested until balance is restored.

Sith training would be an acknowledge of our darker sides and learning to understand how passion when used correctly can take us to a higher level of understanding and empowerment.

That's part of my take on it anyways.

Thanks for the link. Let me know if people are interested in a Sith forum and I can created one. We've had discussions about this over the years off and on and those talks could be referenced there.
