I've been lurking and reading for about a week now, and over the past few days I've felt a pressing need to say hello and reach out.

I'm very new to this. I didn't even know that there was a fully developed philosophy of Jediism until last week. I'm still not sure how far I'll take it, but the one thing I do know is that I need more.

So here goes:
A little more than a year ago, I gave up. I was so tired of battling my darker side that I wondered if just accepting that I had one to begin with would lead me to some form of peace. I let it fill me and take over, and it was awful. I felt like I'd lost my soul and didn't know how to climb back out.

About six months ago I joined a gym in hopes of taming at least some of what I was feeling. It's helped tremendously, but it is incomplete. Hiking and spending time in the mountains has also helped me feel some peace. What brought me here was a simple article about Jedis and their strong connection of body and spirit, and the belief in the importance of both physical and mental exercise. I loved the sound of that and wondered if I could try it on my own. Then I happened upon this temple and page after page of doctrine, code, and creed. I had no idea all this existed and could not stop reading and thinking about it. I watched Master Ace Venom's video and his story stayed with me and kept me thinking.

I started with the code and tried reciting it when I felt the tug of darkness and of being overwhelmed. It's a start for me, and it feels like a good one.

So here I am at the proverbial doorstep. I fear I may have overshared a bit in my greeting, but it sure was nice on my end to write it out and reflect.

Thank you for reading, and for everything I've already found. If I may, I'd really like to hear more about others' thoughts and impressions with the force (The Force?), and what got others to believe.

Thank you for your time,
Amy

Welcome to the Temple Hiker. Actually your sharing is good because you've already fulfilled the next part which is to tell us something about yourself and why you want to become a Jedi.

Congratulations, you have been accepted to study here. Your rank has been adjusted to Initiate. 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.

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.
