Any time Ananta.
Okay, First Task
Describe the Three 'Pillars of the Jedi'. Using the wiki and asking other Jedi on the subject is allowed, but the end result should be your own view.
It will be an honor to be your padawan.
I shall soon begin the task.
Looking forward to it.
I see it has begun.....does that make him my grand Padawan!?? LOL Welcome Ananta!
^ Stating the Obvious again...
and now I am off to bed. G'nite jetiise.
Not my fault that you jetiise are too busy off meditating on the meaning of your belly button lint to reply in a timely manner.
hope you used that time to clean your armor because it seems like you never remove it
What's odd is in the RP I have posted on at least two occasions featuring Taab cleaning his armor and changing his bodysuit. Yet all the Jedi seem to be wearing the same robes....
they get cleaned more then you think they do, it just doesn't get mentioned
I mentioned Alec's getting cleaned <.< Kinda disappointed that no one be commenting on the strippingz that be going onz!
it must've been before I joined the RPG that you cleaned your stuff.
I don't comment on other guyz gettin nekkid.

Well no he had them cleaned and repaired just now. My last post had him changing back into them

A first attempt to begin to comprehend the Jedi Path…
The Pillars of the Jedi
For an aspirant on the Jedi path, the Force is nearer and dearer to him than his own breath. Though the Force defies description, as all words that could be used to describe it are also contained within the Force itself, it is both immanent by its nature of the Living Force as well as transcendent in its infinite oneness as the Cosmic Force.
All virtues are aspects or reflections of the Force as is every act of unconditional and selfless love. Harmony, tranquility, kindness, humility, compassion, wisdom, innocence as well as all other positive qualities have their source in the Force. By surrendering to the will of the Force one simultaneously experiences a deeper connection with and understanding of every sentient being as well as a felt connection with even all material matter.
As darkness has no positive existence, so to the dark side is but a veiling or corruption of the Force. Though the dark side draws its power from the same source, it does so only for selfish means, and thus is ultimately doomed to fail in the long term, cutting itself off from the whole. Dark side users have an inverted view of reality. Darkness thus has a relative existence and exists as the other half of the polarity between itself and the relative manifestation of the Living Light Side of the Force, both of which are contained within the Cosmic Force.
Cultivating wisdom involves reading, reflection and contemplation so that what has been studied can be assimilated. This allows the aspirant to be able to draw from his knowledge when called to action so that his understanding does not remain mere theory.
The vast wealth of knowledge available to a Jedi includes everything from all of the celestial bodies and species in the known galaxy, the old and new Jedi Codes and related systems of philosophy and history as well as all that is available in the Jedi Archives, library, vaults and holocrons. The Jedi Archives alone have been said to hold more information than could be assimilated in a multitude of lifetimes.
The foundation of self-discipline is meditation. The more one learns to control and concentrate the mind, the more they become a willing instrument in the hands of the Force. While the desire to control others is not in harmony with the Force, controlling oneself is, and is essential. Paradoxically, to be controlled by the Force is true freedom. To allow the Force to govern our every action and surrender to its small, still and silent voice within us, that gracefully and wisely will guide us if we attune ourselves to its will, is the ultimate goal of the Jedi’s life.
Meditation is the means of cultivating this receptivity. By turning our attention inwards more and more we are able to control and remove the obstacles that may remain within our hearts and minds that prevent our availability to use and be used by the Force as its benign instrument. Only after a significant duration of meditation should an aspirant attempt to wield and learn the ways of a lightsaber.
smiles and is impressed.
Think I mentioned you were changing, Sarge - but if it's real comments you wanted, knock the screen over accidentally!
