Force Followers United
I've recently taken over as admin of the Jedi discussion and knowledge base community known as Force Followers United, and I'd love to see other 21st century Jedi join us:


We have a lot of discussion forums going on, and we have a very unique culture in which all perspectives of the Force are learned about and discussed. After all, we do not live in the movies! :)

Please feel free to stop on by and share your personal experiences and thoughts with us. We'd love to have fresh voices on the forum!

you know in the end it really doesnt matter what we think
all that matters is the will of the force and honor
do what u beleive u must
for in the end that is the only truth
things that i believe r right may not be right
when we look for others opnion on things what we are really looking for is self estem
the okay for something
so stop and ask yourself next time
and do not hesiatate
trust your feelings
and walk with the force

Has anyone else had experience with amplifying charge off of geometric structures like cathedrals? You can plug into the structure and amplify your charge greatly. I walked out of one building crying, grinning, talking gibberish and absolutely glowing. I Couldn't stay in longer than a few minutes. The best analogy i can think of is a transformer, stepping up the voltage, but that really doesn't do it justice.

What are some of the experiences you guys have had in meditation? What works best for you at building (and holding on to) a charge? What does it feel like when you let the force flow thru you? Thanks

First of all I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Michael. I have been reading this journal for quite some time. It is a great place to share thoughts on the ways of the jedi and sith alike.

Just recently i have began attempting the art of meditating. It has done great things for me as it relaxes me and without it, i would go insane. I'm starting to believe something has happened to my father. I am so used to me and him throwing the baseball in the yard, and going to the football game. Lately he has been acting very strange, with bribing me to change my belief systems, drinking all night, etc. I wish my whole family would begin to meditate, but if I bring it up, they just laugh. I can't get mad at them, I need to control my anger. It is such a little thing that I need to stop getting angry at these tiny things, and start realizing there is far worse things in my life. I want to get out of this crime-ridden area. But I fear change. It has come to the point that I won't leave the house without someone. I need to stop acting crazy, and show myself how to be civilized.

People should write in this journal besides me
so that way we can share our jedi knowledge

as a jedi ones will must be absolute
if ur will bends to the will of someone elses then it was not ur will in the first place
u must be willing to comprimise but not give in entirly

sometimes i might question the will of the force but i know where ever it leads it is for the best
my current thoughts are dwelling on my father
he is dying
while i do believe in the thought of unattachment
i dont want to go and see him becaus i want my memories of my father to be throwing ball in the yard
i dont wnat it to be of him hooked up to tubes and wires
i will go and see him because once he is gone i am the last of my bloodline
there is no other attachments in my life
so many times i think that i am on the path as anakin skywalker
but remember that only the siths deal in absoluts

I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. So Hi, I'm Dave. This community is a lot of fun to read, and I appreciate that there are other folks out there that draw inspiration from Jedi wisdom and the force. Everyday something comes up that gives me the option of getting crazy angry, but more often than not I hear Yoda's voice in my ear. I told one friend that the phrase "be mindful of your feelings" gave me a way to change how I react to frustrating circumstances. He laughed his head off. I do see the inherent humor in taking advice from a Puppet. But who is better off, the puppet that inspires others to be better people, or the human being who lives a life of fear and unconsciousness?

Thanks for creating a respectful place to talk about the living force

no matter what we do there is always stupisity in the world
there is really nothing that we can do about it
i am a waiter and sometimes i get frustrated when a person says something is my fault and i know dam well it isnt
as in when some one says i want my steak well done it gets cooked well done and then they are like no i want it medium
as to being ambitious but knowing the path to the dark side
there are so many ways to give you a bullshit answer to try and answer that problem
like dont be ambitious good things come to those that are patient
are the force only helps those who help themselves
but i really think that this is a question that only the asker can truly answer
question youre motives
are you being ambitious out of greed
dont feel like people are wrong
sometimes people are ignorant to your beliefs but they are never wrong
in the case of the steak
i believe i know what they said they believe that they said something else
i know thats not the best example but look at it like this
the quickest way to the dark side is anger at what people believe
as jedi we are suppose to be understanding
as long as what people believe does not create harm to others than there is no reason to feel anything about it
5:42 pm
sometimes emotions can get in the way of things that you are suppose to do
thats why the celibacy rule was in affect
as anakin put it i think that the jedi are encouraged to love
attachment is forbidded because it leads to the dark side
attachment leads to jealousy jealousy leads to hate
hate leads to the dark side

but this is also a duel edged sword
for while attachment is forbidden
we have to attach ourselves to something
to ideals that we believe in
things that we cherish
i fear total disattachment would also lead to the darkside
1:09 am
Any thoughts on celibacy?
I am curious why the theme of celibacy pops up in monastic orders as well as Jedi Knights. Why is this seen as necessary? Is it to avoid the distractions and attachments of a family or is it a problem with the sex itself? Does sex detract from your ability to use the force?

A Treacherous Road
Sometimes I feel as though I get angry or fearful whenever I see things not go my way.

I feel that I should be actively trying to change things for the better, though often the inability to do results in more fear that things will not change, and anger at those I feel are impeding what I feel to be necessary for progress and improvement.

How can I live in a way that I can continually push for change the way I want the world to be, while simultaneously maintaining myself calm.

How can I prevent the fear and anger from turning into a hate of those I feel are wrong?

It is a question of someone who is ambitious but knows the path down the road of power is treacherous.

i learned a very importasnt lesson today
pride as in oneself while very necassary
isnt that all important as i thought that it was
i thought that no matter what i had to be right if i knew that i was right
but now i realize that it dosnt matter
like the saying it dosnt matter id you believe in the force because i believe enough for the both of us

if the force surrounds us then why can we not hear it all the time
because sometimes it are wants and desires that make us deaf
sometimes it is our arragonce that clouds our vision
sometimes there are things that we dont really want to do but we have to do
it may upset some people and it may feel like it hurts other people but if you believe yourself to be right then do it
if you are at peace with your desicion then you are right
if you have stopped at searced your feelings and you know it to be true and just then it cannot be wrong
from a certain point of view

due to recent events i have been looking at many "sith" journals
why go down that path
realize that there is no reason for it
power over others is no way to immortality
when u die and become one with the force no one will remember you
you cant take the money
you cant take the power
so what good is it?
stop and thank about that

such a dedicated jedi i am im at my barbers and he has a computer


if the the force flows like a river then there is a way to paddle against it
we call this going against the will of the force
how do you know when you are doing this
when you are not at piece with your self
only when the your spirit is at peace can you truly listen to the force
meditate for at least 30 minutes a day
complete relaxation
it will make you feel more restful

there is no emotion there is only peace
what does this mean to us in the real world
this is the statement that there can be no other emotion but peace with yourself
if you are not at peace with your self then you can not really open yourself up to feel the will of the force like one should
turmoil of conflict leads to worry
through worry we decide what we will and will not do
be mindful of your feelings
know that in the end all happens for a reason and that the force will not let you down if you try to understand it
when regarding the force do not ask why for we may never truly understand why but ask how
ask how will me losing my job better me in life
ask how will the mass killing of people in an earthquake better life in a whole
the force does exist we just dont always want to believe in it
people of other faith dont have to believe because i believe enough for us all

a jedi should only act when he is at peace with a decision
not when he is in turmoil
meditate on what must be done
and then when the thought has occured to you that you are right to do the action should you do it
we know that some people use the ideals of yin and yang and buddism to describe the belief of the force
i believe that it means alot more than that
what is the force to u?

ok to the first and most groundbreaking question
whos right the sith are the jedi
my answer is that i have chosen to start the path of the jedi because while in history the sith have had awsome power it comes at a great price
i had always wanted the "power" of the sith in real life but after reading the novel of ep 3 i realize that that would be a huge downfall
the jedi way is the way to peace
the dark side only brings suffering and pain
the first step to becoming a jedi is to let go of the want and needs of life
im not saying that you should give up go live in the woods and meditate for the rest of your lives im just saying that you should give up the want of greed and the want of power
let things come to you
they will if you believe in the will of the force
the old christian saying "god lets everything happen for a reason" i believe applies here
as a wise jedi master once said
be mindful of the force for we dont really understand it
we say things like the will of the force because we are ignorant to understand it
the dark side to me is the want to do harm or things for the glory of one person
the dark side to me is the want to do whatever it takes for personal gain
what is the dark side to you?
