We fill all these roles in our lives in different capacities if we are living our lives to the fullest. I ask you, are you filling these roles in others lives? If not, then why not?
Even better - sometimes we are these themes in other paths as well. So many times that word Hero is so stuck to one definition we can sometimes forget in real life there are no capes.
The hardest thing in a modern day Jeddist life is finding their own balance of things. The romance of A Jedi Knight for me is to have that cloak or that hood and be able to be me and to be exactly what’s needed regardless of the situation. In real life ( for me) it’s that ability to stand on my own choices and “perform admirably.” My own choice- but we can - as humans - create our own character and our own balance. How do our “HEROS” act when that moment comes when they act - the way we want to- and why? What are their choices? For me - it’s the fighter that has trained and finds the solution to NOT fight any more or the sage who builds by every day wisdom and action - revealing a every day balance. We all have our own “hero’s” so I ask you Temple - what do yours do ? Is it possible to do just that ? Is it possible to learn from a myth - a story - a comic book- a bible - a way - a idea - etc etc etc....
Looking forward to what ya post.
Tuesday s post of a Monday thing
Character - a big word that can transcend many labels. Something to think about - seriously - think about that.
But how ??? Glad u asked
Comic book character
Ever see animals display character
Nature display character
The list goes on...
You can find it any where ...
(labeled character) - if ya remove the label and just call it character - you can find character anywhere. Some good, some you might not like, but it’s all there; like a huge buffet table and you have two good hands for two good plates.
Take what ya want - take what ya need: some of us over grab, some of us under plate and yet - some of us try new things. Some of us are scared to..we never really have a stopping point. We do that, on our own...So - I hope this a a gentle reminder - what ya gunna get ? What ya gunna try ? U full? You good ? Or are you like me and just wanna see what all is available ? Got a specific taste you’re looking for ? Come sit at my table and let’s share ! Force be with y’all!
Just some thoughts for the table.
Much Love, Respect and Peace,

Some heavy stuff for a Monday. What ya bringing to life? What does your song ... sound like? My little brother sent me a link yesterday of some major rock songs being played in major chords as opposed to minor chords. Changed the whole - being of the things. Some times our songs can change my a mere change of a chord or a idea or even a focus shift. Hmmm our choices can make a tragedy into something joyful and triumphant. Just something to think about. Force continue to be with you as we all seek share and serve it!

That has been one of my favorite quotes for a long time.
