To topple

7. Jedi understand their limitations. We recognize, and take responsibility, for our failures and develop a level of modesty about them. We respect the right for others to disagree and understand that they themselves are not perfect.

This Monday Meditation we talked about :

Reflection and too much being too much.
We have limits. We do. We are human. Understanding these limits can help anyone on a self-reflective path. We can stack too much in our own paths and watch things topple. This holiday season and this week, take some time to think on Jedi Teaching 7.
Can too much reflection harm as well?
Something to think about Jedi as we go through this week together. May the Force be with y'all

14. Jedi are guardians of peace. We believe in helping all those that are in need, in whatever form, to the best of our ability. We recognize that sometimes providing help requires courage in the face of adversity but understand that conflict is resolved through peace, understanding and harmony.


Harmony and Understanding

These are a few things that can bring or share peace.
We have this "glow" about us, every single one of us. The "wanna-help" light seems to always be on for some and thats ok.
Jedi teaching 14 reminds us it aint gunna be easy and it will take some time. There are some who understand things quickly, I do not. Thats ok too. The understanding part of things takes some application and time.

We are keepers of what we got. Share what ya got. There are so many levels of peace and understanding, I will meet you in the seek. Promise.

11. Jedi are mindful of their thoughts. We recognise the beauty in others and we provide help to those who come seeking it. Through our benevolent actions we strengthen not only ourselves but also our communities. Jedi act without prejudice.

I have noticed the push for mindfulness in the world and in my own community. Its on billboards and commercials and even on the radio and music and books.

In our thoughts are where things often live. This week I want to remind Jedi to be mindful of our thoughts. What we put in this week will come out next week and what we often read is how we can think. Seeing the beauty in others is so much more than just tolerance. By this action we can find strength.
If you do not know, Every Monday we meet in the Discord in the Pastors room for a hour to chat on such things. This morning was a good chat. Thank you all to those who show up a often as they do. Please feel free to post here with your ideas or comments or encouragements on such things.
Think about mindfulness and share it this week. May the Force be with y'all this week.

Good morning all you 500 plus Bright beams of hope!
Today and this week I want to remind Jedi everywhere to have a creed and code and to be ready when its checked, you may reach your limits this season.
Having Codes and Creeds is a human thing. We got em in every color and idea you can fathom. Some have rhythms and rythemes and some are as simple as a easy statment.
Ours are here

Qui Gon Jin says our focus determines our reality. This is a very human thing to say not a Jedi thing. I have a Hawaiian study course I take. I keep it in my heart for me. It is a part of me as much as my hair and tatoos. One in paticular is one of seven called MAKIA - Energy flows where attention goes.

The days of making things up have been traded for seeking of the originals.

See this week if your Jedi Creed and Codes are already in your path. Do some reflection and find a few parallels when it comes to creeds and codes and you will find how human Jedi really are. ?

Pastor Carlos
Happy holidays Jedi

I gotta ask this real quick. If we choose to be Jedi before we choose to try and be "good" people will we not miss both targets?

Just food for thought!
Much Love,
Kobos

When used correctly, the Jedi Tenets allow us to better ourselves and overcome any obstacle. They help us improve the world around us and fulfil our purpose in life as a Jedi.

Focus Knowledge and Wisdom are a path any Jedi anywhere can travel or set a path on. These three words and ideas can create.
I have the joy and privilege to host a hour chat session in our Discord space every Monday. If your around join in. We chat about every day doctrine and application. This Monday was a good one.
I want to encourage others to join on Mondays and start the week with ideas and doctrine to think about during the week.
May the Force be with ya'll
