I said these words, the ones in my signature, nearly a decade ago, not even fully understanding what they meant. I knew they were true for me, but didn’t implement them in my life until several years later. At the time I was still an apprentice, and didn’t realize that I myself was trying to find the elusive “It” in places other than where I was. That is the lesson I hope to empasize here, that, as it says in The Art of Peace, heaven is right where you stand.
Enlightenment is not a result of action, but a result of realization. There is nothing you can do to become enlightened, you can only realize that you already are.June 3, 2007 at 5:40 am #144274Alchemic_WrathParticipant
That is very interesting. It somewhat reminds me of a quote from myself. It has nothing to do with it really but it is simmilar. “Everyone has quick wit. Its whether or not you can keep up with yours that matters.” I wrote that on the board in my Art class and I had atleast 7 kids come up to me and ask what it meant. I just replied that they couldn’t keep up with their wit. Then three of them got it.June 3, 2007 at 5:58 am #144277JaxKeymaster
that’s cute.June 3, 2007 at 6:02 am #144279Alchemic_WrathParticipant
“cute” *laughs* My other quote that my art teacher liked and left up on the board for a day or two was. “I don’t fail life. I have a strong D-“June 3, 2007 at 6:19 am #144280JaxKeymaster
Haha, nice. We used to put quotes on the board during lunch before our current events type class. It was fun.June 3, 2007 at 6:30 am #144282Alchemic_WrathParticipant
That sounds cool. I exhausted my brain trying to think of something else witty to put up on the board and couldn’t think of one. I got an award in the fifth grade for quick wit. I am not sure if that was a complement of the teacher just couldn’t think of anything to award me for. Every student had to get one award a year at me elementary school. I usually just got one that said advanced in all areas or such.June 3, 2007 at 6:44 am #144286JaxKeymaster
Perhaps you can put your wit to use here also. We encourage everyone to share what they learn or come up with randomly.June 3, 2007 at 6:50 am #144288Alchemic_WrathParticipant
Alright. I love to use wit and sarcasm. I have been that way all my life.June 14, 2007 at 2:01 am #144400Jedi LawheadParticipant
Jediism is in many ways similar to Sanatana Dharma more commonly known as Hinduism.September 15, 2007 at 3:42 am #146247Reverend SemadeniParticipantQuote:Jediism is in many ways similar to Sanatana Dharma more commonly known as Hinduism.
Jediism is in many ways similar to many more than just one religion of the world. Pointing to one single religion and making a statement like that says to me that its a great thing the academy is here because there is a whole lot more to know than what is similar to Hinduism.
