Hello everyone, I have been bouncing around various Jedi sites looking for a good match. I like the simplicity of this site. I do want to study Jediism and apply it's principles to my life more - as i do apply a LOT of spirituality to my life already - taosim, buddhism, new age, etc. I don't follow any relgion and don't believe Jediism should be a relgion - I don't think any religion is necessary. I do believe in a creator, a way of living in alignment with the creator (flow, chi, force, etc) and that it is a worthy path - along with other disciplines.
that's all for now....:)

Welcome. I think you'll find that many believe as you do, and I hope what you find here complements your study of the Path.

Hey, be welcome!

You speak about spirituality and religion as two total different things? Just a question out of curiosity.

yes - i do. There is a difference.
Religions are (usually) spiritual but not all spirituality is a religion.
One is man-made; one is acknowledgement of the source (force)

Welcome. My perspective is that religion has a set of agreed upon beliefs, structure, and dogma to it. Spirituality is your connection to something larger than yourself. Even atheists can be incredibly spiritual. And religions can have zero spirituality in them. The two are not interchangeable but they often inhibit the same sphere.

I am not sure if this is the place, but I plan to conduct an independent study here. I have the introductory course downloaded and am reading it and working on a self-study program. I have read a lot of the FAQS here but some won't be clear until I actually do them (imagine that! ) - so i think the process is that I will create a self-study journal here online and record my progress.

First of all welcome to the IJRS! I hope You will find what You are searching for here at the IJRS, at least in parts.

I just saw that You already created a new thread for your Introduction Course Assignments. So we will meet there again as I'm one of the instructors for this course.
