I’ve been listening to Common’s “A Dream” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBa55sDTIiA) and these quotes inspired me.
“My dream is to be free, my dream is to be, my dream is to be, my dream is to be free.”
“I put together pieces of a Dream- I still have one.”
What are your dreams? Real, honest huge wide-scape idealistic dreams. Dreams in general, possible or not. Don’t limit yourself. What are your dreams?

My ultimate dream would be to have a REAL Jedi Temple, just like in Star Wars. I realize how unrealistic that is, but I believe that focusing on that image is what will bring about a more realistic type of meeting place for people like us.April 22, 2007 at 11:22 am #143794Jedi NitroParticipant
Several times I’ve thought about how good it would be if the Jedi were seen as a symbol in today’s society. If we were seen as peacekeepers and defends of peace. Working in conjunction with our local area, where we can be called to deal with diplomatic/physical situations. Almost like Star Wars becoming true in modern times.
However, this is but a dream.April 25, 2007 at 3:32 am #143847Kai-AnParticipant
But they’re important dreams. Good ones. I agree, I’d love to see the day when being a Jedi was something people understood and respected- that our training was more widespread and open, that we could meet in temples all over the world. And maybe one day it could happen. Point is, you don’t just let go of those dreams because they seem impossible.

A dream! That implies only one dream! Well, I have either one very big, complex dream, or several smaller interrelated dreams.
Dream 1 – Work in a profession that allows sufficient time (or even encourages) self-development and Jedi training. I see lack of time as one of the biggest obstacles to our personal development and greater aspirations. I’m well on the way to realising this dream by looking to be a self-employed shiatsu massage therapist.
Dream 2 – Move to the US for a time (maybe a good long time) to facilitate for several different reasons, such as more work opportunities for my husband and I, things we can do and learn there that we cannot in Oz, be closer to friends etc. Hopefully this dream will go well too, as we have submitted greencard applications for 2008 and just have to wait to see how that goes.
Dream 3 – To change the way my family lives to be more environmentally and economically sustainable. Translation: build an energy efficient home, change transportation habits and methods, grow more of own food etc. I’m thinking of undertaking a correspondence course in self-sufficiency to help with that. That also leads on to Dream 4.
Dream 4 – Establishment of a number of Jedi Communities. Now, most of us say that we want to see ‘real Jedi Temples’, but get a bit vague on the details of what this entails. My dream of a (or several) Jedi Communities involved a number of Jedi and their families living within a reasonable close proximity to each other (e.g. within an intentional community or wider community within easy proximity). I would see these communities working together to facilitate each persons personal training, and also working to serve the greater community in specific ways agreed upon by the groups members. For example, there is the possibility that in the future, the world will be destabilised by economic and political problems caused by depleted oil stocks and global warming. In a worse case scenario, it is possible that large numbers of people will be without education, food, clean water, and the ability to procure or make food and necessary items for themselves. As such, I would like to see at least some Jedi communities make a specialisation of preserving factual and cultural information and being capable of teaching people how to support themselves; as well as emergency relief work in such situations. It is of course entirely possible that such will not be necessary, but I feel it is a worthy undertaking either way.

My main dream would definatly be a world without war or random killing.
And now my selfish dream. I would want the people who really try to connect with the force to be able to do things that you would see in the movies. Or even better like in the new game coming out soon. Star Wars: Force Unleashed. The creators always ask what the main point of the game is at their meetings and all of the team replies. “Kicking ass with the force.” Thats my dream. To be able to kick ass with the force…Of course. I wouldn’t be able to hurt anybody so really I would be just defying everything my science classes have to say with the force.
