Random thoughts from today.

Today I found myself thinking about an incident that happened when I was much younger and I want to write about it to give an example of how we can use the Force on a physical and mental level in real life situations.

By Therrien Xavier.

The light aspect of the Force can be summed up as such, the use of the Force to do "Good" in the universe. Now the Force for Jedi can be many things. Some view the Force as pure energy or "Chi" or "Ki" it is the energy system of the body also called The Human bio-field. As others such as myself view it not only as a source of energy but a source of "Will" or "Intent" It is the intent of the Jedi in the world that makes them inherently good or bad.

Let's take a look at "Lightside" in action from my own life.

when I was around 12-13 years old I had a regular barber that my dad would take me to so I could get my hair cut. Well, one day we were at Wal*Mart and we were just finishing up checking out when I looked over and saw a wallet laying on the ground. I went over picked it up and looked at the license inside and wouldn't you know it! The wallet belonged to my barber whose shop was just right up the street. Now this wallet had about $500 in it and I could have easily just thrown the wallet and kept the money yet, the Force called out to me to do the right thing and I showed my dad what I had found. After checking out we ran up to his shop and returned his wallet with all of his money. He was so grateful that we did not rob him and he was especially thankful that I had found it and decided to do the right thing.

Because the man was so happy to have gotten his wallet and money back he let me get free haircuts for a full year, even though my father would still offer cash. He would always insist on a free haircut and always reminded us of our deed.

This is how the Force can send ripples throughout our lives one kind act can impact and transform how someone does things this is why we must be careful in how we conduct ourselves and use the Force within our own and others lives.

The KM has decided that you're green-lighted for apprenticeship. Please let us know what color you want the little light-saber under your rank to be, the possible colors are:

Blue
Green
Yellow
Purple

Also which specialization you're the most interested in.
You can pick consular, sentinel or guardian.

More info can be found here:
http://www.templeofthejediforce.org/m ... martfaq/faq.php?faqid=137

Let us know here and someone will help change this up for you. Your rank will be changed once you've entered into a mentor-apprentice agreement with one of the knights or masters on this page.

Congratulations, and good work!
Nira

Thank you Nira, I am actually wanting to go with Jedi Consular and I would like to have a Green saber as I am an Earth Elemental. Everything for me has to be a particular way, lol. Anyway, I must thank you for working with me and look forward to any conversation that unfolds in the future.

-MTFBWY, Therrien Xavier.

Looks like we're clear to proceed!

The first assignment is an ongoing one to help you build Jedi habits.

Form an exercise plan for the mind, body, and spirit to be used at least twice a week for a minimum of one hour per session. Post weekly updates on whether the regimen requirement was met, what was done, feelings experienced before, during , and after, and what if any thoughts/images came to mind during meditation. This is an ongoing assignment, and should be kept up throughout the entirety of apprenticeship.

Also:

Please describe what methods you are using to meditate, in a step by step format, as though you are describing it to someone who has never meditated before.
