Hello, my name is Gabe and I am 20 years old. I joined the Jedi Order because I feel I need to learn control, patience, and disipline.

About half a year ago I moved from Kentucky to Oregon: just me and my parents and baby brother. About 2 months ago I got my first ever job as a cook at McDonald's. Lately life has been extremely difficult. I make way too many dumb mistakes and I have lack of spatial awareness and when I do mess up, I ocassionally go to my room and punch myself as punishment (mostly when my mom yells at me). Also, because of the kind of job I have, I have become a sugar addict. Another problem I have is that I am an excessive money spender.

So, I feel learning and practicing the ways of the Jedi and the force will help me with these problems.

Welcome, feel free to look around and let us know if you have any questions about the site.

About the situation you brought up. It's always good to find someone to talk to about your problems, it really helps to sort things out and get a different point of view on solutions. So think about counseling, or spending more time with friends who are positive and are willing to share that positive energy with you.

The most important thing is to be your own best friend. A best friend should be someone who's positive and sees the best in you. So you should spend some time looking for ways to be on your side, in life. Compliment yourself and focus on what you do right and not so much on what you do wrong. Good and bad comes to all of us. Jedi focus on the good so the good can grow within us.

I would suggest you begin your walk on this path with simple meditation. Find a quiet place and listen to your breathing. Just focus on that. It helps to think to yourself these words, "The breath goes in, the breath goes out." as you focus on this. Breathe as slow and relaxed as you can. Give it a least a few mins a day to start and go as long as you feel comfortable if you want to go past a few mins. The act of doing it everyday is more important than how long you do it at this stage.

All the best to you on your journey, Jedi.

Thank you master. Also, the only question I have is if there are deadlines for each of the journals?

No deadlines, you work at your own pace. Members from the KM committee that oversees Initiates requirements will provide additional information. Force be with you!

Welcome Gabe :)

Always wonderful to meet someone new!
You should find most of the information you need by following this to our "Start Here" page:

www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... ws/index.php?storytopic=6

As it states; now that you've gotten your initiate rank all you need to do is set up a journal in the journal's section of the forum. It's up top on the main page and you'll see tons of other journals there. Please meditate on and describe/interpret, line-by line:

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.

Best way to go is trying to relate it to your own everyday life and experiences, and don't worry about "getting it right". Just share your thoughts as extensively as you're able and do your best to put some effort into it. It's through this initiate program that prospective mentors can get to know you, so we pair up the student with the right mentor.

Please pace yourself with your entries, and remember that this is not a race. There are no deadlines and it'll help you later if you've put effort into this part of it.

Please let us know if you have any questions, and make yourself at home. Force light your path!

Nira

Hello Gabe and welcome!

Meditation is a wonderful daily ritual to begin practicing. I hope it becomes as beneficial for you as it has been for so many others. Feel more than free to poke around the study downloads area and read up on whatever strikes you, too. And as always, ask away when it comes to questions.

It's great to meet you!
