you begin with a quote from the book: the way of the peaceful warrior,
then a welcome and state your name/handle.
after this, you mention that what we get out of the study group is up to us,
and how much each of us puts into it.
you mention that you will be participating as well, but leave it to each of us
to really get into the book, which you hope will help us along our jedi path,
you hope that this book and reading it/getting into it will be
a journey for us all to learn something we haven’t learned before.
you ask us, if we haven’t already done so: to create a journal for this study group and to post
an inital posting or two telling everyone a little about ourselves and our jedi path:
where we’ve been in it, where we plan to go along our jedi path
and then to go on and answer question 1 in our journal for this study group.
I hope to enjoy a good book, learn what it means to be a peaceful warrior,
(which seems a bit strange in a way to be peaceful yet be a warrior)
and how I can apply this to my jedi path.
speaking a bit of that path, lately I seem to have a voice of reason and peace etc
among some of my online jedi friends, when they’ve been
somewhat arguementative with one another, not really
communicating quite as efrectively with one another
as they could if they would just take some time to think about
what they’re saying and listen to each other, without posting
things that would or could possibly be hurtful to one another, etc.
I’ve jumped in and yelled a bit at them telling them to stop fighting, posted a bit
about various songs with lyrics and videos LINKs, poems etc
to get them to think more peacefully and about getting along
with each other despite what seem to be differences of opinions etc.
(^ specifically reply 21 on june 27 2007, reply 24, reply 25, and reply 29 all on page 2 of thread.)
^ but I guess most of this last part really belongs in my journal,
so should I post this there too: starting with “speaking a bit of that path” ?
