Hello there I am having some uncertainties and questioning my faith. I come from a Christian background and am used to being able to look towards the Bible in times of struggle. However where do I turn now? I no longer feel the gravitational pull to the Bible but I am looking for another text of sorts to look towards in my time of uncertainty.

Do we, the Temple of the Jedi Order, have a text, film, reading, or anything like that to look towards in our times of struggle?

When you read the Bible looking for solace, did you just flip to a random page and hope it was relevant or did you have certain passages that you relied upon?
There's many myths here, just like the Bible has many books in it.

The force, ... we turn to the force! Let it speak to you! It has much more to say than some dusty ancient book!! And its dynamic!

A true teacher would never tell you what to do. But he would give you the knowledge with which you could decide what would be best for you to do

No. Jediism is like the scene in Empire Strikes Back, where Luke Skywalker enters the cave in Dagobah. There is no book to comfort you, and no weapon will do.

Embrace the struggle. Once you do, you will find wisdom everywhere, even in the words of fools (such as this one writing to you)

Thank you so much! It certainly is a large volume I have to choose from. Any suggestions on readings you would consider to be most important or dogma in a way to Jediism?

I suppose I would just flip to random pages or often reread the stories of my childhood that brought me such comfort. Any myths you would recommend?

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? :laugh:

Why try talking to a dusty book when you can talk to a real living and interactive friend? Did you ever talk to God? Why is the force different?

A true teacher would never tell you what to do. But he would give you the knowledge with which you could decide what would be best for you to do
