Recently, I have thrown as much of my own garbage (emotional and stupid life stuff) on my garden as I think is humanly possible without cracking.

That said, though it took some time and still will I decided to finally plant some stuff. I decided to plant a new knowledge tree. Time to start reading something to fill me up instead of the things that empty me out.

I decided to plant a tree of love, a tree to honor my fiance, and our life together. A life that no longer considers itself an individual first.

There are some other plants in there, let's see what the grow to out of the garbage I left to be the fertilizer.

Some actual strawberries too, and some potatoes
Much Love,
Kobos

Fighting what you cannot see, will only lead you to lash out with violence towards everyone. Know your enemy, and you may find yourself a friend.

You can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile- Men without hats

Where we find and what we fill our places inside with is totally up to us and I am glad you get to make those choices. From one heart to another, who has done this very thing, your efforts will never go in vain. Claiming and planting things like this is the start of great things.

When we finally decide to make those choices - often times the answers seem far away or impossible and I want to encourage others doing the same things in their life's, decisions of change arnt easy. They never are AND they are never the same. Kinna like a story some where in a book or from a tale... familiar. The Force is like that for us at times, familiar if we frequent it.

The Force can be familiar from frequency. Really anything can if you think about it... and please do.

Frequency

Check this out KOBOS
I planted a "secret garden." Learned this one from a great Christian Man who was head over heels with his love. He said "ya wanna love her a bit ...more...bro - talk about her when she's not there or she wont find out. Grow her gorgeous in your secret garden." That one got me.
Real Life:
Any LOVE - talk about them when they are not present to people who know them. Build them up with out them knowing. Build them up to their loved ones and their friends and their circles. When your love isn't present say something out loud that only you can hear and say good things about them." I sure do like it when they …. fill in the blank." Literally say it. This secret garden does wonders for some one on the inside. Think about it, its worth a try. I see your PIKS on Facebook Kobos and what beautiful people you are when your love is around, you both glow. I like that. I like love. I love to hear things of a positive note when it comes to love and people - regardless of gender. Love is love. Love can be built over years and time and be lost in a second. Create good things and plant good things. When ya do, you get good things. Good fruit. In days like this, we kina need some good fruit hu? Keep up the good stuff KOBOS and every one else, LOVE your LOVE. Find a way, ask heck, or just try. My seven year old boy came by and gave me a hug - stopped me dead in my path... I needed it. Y'all know your loves and when they need one or two or ten hugs- give 'em away. If ya needed any reason to hug some one you love then blame it on the epidemic. EPIDEMIC HUG cuzzz only you can right now. I CANT. Hey Modern day Jedi - send a hug to some one you can. this time we are in, I know I needed one... plant good things like trees of love and secret gardens, you wont regret it.
Just,
Carlos

My goal for this since 1 Aug 2016 18:33 is that it stays as long as it can and the hope is that this helps Jedi from all walks and denominations and paths. The goal is to continue till the day I glow blue. Till that day , you got me here every Monday with something new strait from the horses mouth.

This ones a good one

I have been watching Episode One and this week Episode 2 of the sagas. I invite you this Saturday to watch with me the third movie of this set with me this Saturday any time, just pick a time and watch it as me and the family watch is as well. Nothing big but join if you like.
Episode Two is Attack of the Clones - In our home, we joke A LOT. Me and my LOVE are both Veteran soldiers and we have a twisted funny bone at times. We called Attack of the Clones "When you finnaly get to use your saber...in public." or " Episode Two - Application of training" or" Star Wars - the time to shit,shut up or show up." Ya get the picture. For me Episode Two is the time of action.

Be sure your choices will be tested. Eventually, each choice we make will be proofed, or tested or even validated or- tried. Its a natural way of life really. Anakin was no exception. I totally connect to him in so many ways. Still do as I get older. Elder hahaha
Watching this Old Show reminded me that there is such a thing as HEALTHY LIMITS. Our choices matter. They can become our limits. Limits are needed. As we begin to think an plan we can set our own boundaries and limits. The value of those limits or choices is totally up to us. BUT ---- don't forget, we live in the real world and they will be tested. For a Modern day Jedi it seems our faith and choices and codes are tested ALL THE STINKING TIME. Might just be me but that's the way I feel some days. That's proof some times of change and growth. Think about that this week friends, If you were Anakin - would you have different limits or even boundaries? How about in the real world - Homicide of innocents in a rage I hope is NEVER a option (taken from the movie) but it can go to show us we all could benefit from some limits.

Jedi Believe
In the Force, and in the inherent worth of all life within it.
In the sanctity of the human person. We oppose the use of torture and cruel or unusual punishment, including the death penalty.
In a society governed by laws grounded in reason and compassion, not in fear or prejudice.
In a society that does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or circumstances of birth such as gender, ethnicity and national origin.
In the ethic of reciprocity, and how moral concepts are not absolute but vary by culture, religion and over time.
In the positive influence of spiritual growth and awareness on society.
In the importance of freedom of conscience and self-determination within religious, political and other structures.
In the separation of religion and government and the freedoms of speech, association and expression.

Be sure your are not alone.

Pastor Carlos

Ps - I don't tear up or cry often, not my thing but this one got me good. My heart hurts for the world and for those being effected by choices I didn't make. Not my video not my platform not my content but defiantly how I feel about the world.

I try every week - Monday to post a good encouraging something. There are times when life gets full. Last Monday was nonexseption.

Today is today!

Racism

This, for me is a 4 letter word. We all know as humans that it hurts and upsets many.
I deal with race ism every time I walk into a building. I don’t look like anybody.
How do we combat this huge beast of a thing?
Some see it as impossible.
It is know that one simple person can not change the course of time and effort - or can it?
Here is my suggestion.
I use the word “shouldn’t” reluctantly-
Buuuut Jedi shouldn’t be racist. Just my opinion.

How to combat a silent killer - silently ...

When you hear racist remarks - in your mind - in your head or in your souls - correct it. Any time. Watch what happens.
Use the word “person” not a discription.

Racism is everywhere. Everywhere we look and every where we listen. It’s in our advertise and in our songs. It in our books and the way we think. Time to take control of our own individual self’s.
Make it a point to correct the “color” or anytime some one uses color to discribe some one- in your mind at that moment when you hear it - correct it.
When I do this in real life it makes changes. It brings to light what’s hidden.
Try it what have you got to loose???
Maybe some one else’s hate -
Pastor Carlos
Feel free to comment or even post -





If ya don’t wanna change that’s ok too buuuuut for those who want actual change - not just complain... here’s a lesson for ya.
That which you think can be how you act.
Your focus determines your reality.
What ya think is what ya do.
Inside is where outside dwells.

Get it ? Good now try it if ya like.

I have been trying to have more fun with things because several people have told me in the last few months I have become pettier and more detached from the light side of things. From optomist to realist to pessimist. So I picked up the old star wars game and I think this quote is relevant to what you were saying above.

Atris: Every choice we make, whether we know it or not, sends echoes through the force. It can awaken feelings, ignite passions, hate, anger, fear - where none existed before. By meeting aggression, by serving as an opponent against which the Mandalorians could test themselves, you fed their hate, their lust for war! And it sent a terrible echo through you. And because of it, you and those Jedi who met them on the battlefield lost their way... and you turned on us.

Just a few thoughts on the above post. Keep it up Carlos!

Much Love,
Kobos

The variations are endless..

Every journey begins with the first step - we ALL know this. From the first story we hear or read or are told - begining is where the story’s usually begin.
Some begin with - THE CHASE
Some backwards
Some in the middle
Some in the future
All begin with walking through a door and making a desision.
Not every door is the same. Not every experience is the same.
THEY DONT HAVE TO BE- they can’t -
This for me as a Pastor of the Order means that each modern day Jedi have a very acute and personal balance of what’s all available. It’s sooooo personal it’s almost - sacred. Specifics are to the individuals.
How you find love
How you find joy
How you find pardon
How you find Hope
How you find Faith
How you find what Light you need

Is totally up to you.

Do you see where the vastness of combinations can vary?

Comes with the territory.
Think about it Jedi
