The WISDOM of JED: Notes for a Jedi lifestyle

by PC May

Eons ago, long before the founding of the Jedi Order of Knights, there lived a wise old creature. Nothing is known of the species, race or gender of this creature. All that is known is that he or she ended their life as a hermit in a cave in the Tartegus Mountains of Manius in the solar system of the Orphius star in the galaxy of Sokolata. Before death this creature inscribed a series of graphene sheets with notes on how to live a virtuous life in unity with the force. The sheets were enclosed in a graphene casket engraved with the name JED. A group of speleologists on a caving expedition in the mountains came across the casket alongside a collection of bones. When they opened the casket, the cave began to shake in the grip of a sudden maniusquake. They grabbed the casket but left the bones and escaped just as the cave was engulfed in a rock fall which totally obliterated the entrance. No creature has been able to locate the cave since. It is not known if this collection of wisdom formed the basis for the Jedi Order or if they came to the force independently. The wisdom of Jed refers to ordinary aspects of life rather than relating to warfare for which the Jedi are best known. This translation seeks to make Jed’s words relevant to our time and age on this planet. Includes eight FEEL THE FORCE exercises.



Betterment

by Will Speed

Betterment . . . a term used by shipwrights to describe structural repairs to a vessel, which improve the vessel’s seaworthiness.

For the past sixteen years I have travelled our beautiful planet by plane, train, boat, as well as accidentally hitchhiking from Mexico to Ecuador. I’ve slept in hammocks under palm trees where the oceans kiss the land and the jungles rustle above and where there is nothing but the beauty of Mother Nature.

And it is, believe me, a beautiful planet. Although I have never been to another planet, so I really don’t have anything to compare it to. But I know that when I open my eyes and look around I see so much beauty. Unfortunately, as humans, we do not always respect the beauty of Mother Nature; like an angry husband hitting his wife, we slowly erode what loves us the most.

So join my dog Cha-cha and myself as we travel through the beautiful French Alps and I reflect on my voyages from Asia to Latin America, and let’s see if together we can help make our beautiful world achieve betterment.

On Memory and Reminiscence

by Aristotle

Along with Plato and Socrates, Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) is one of the triumvirate of philosophers responsible for the establishment of Western philosophy as it exists today. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were among the first to refine philosophical thought, and Socrates is credited with devising the Socratic Method as a way to argue and debate points rationally.  The Ancient Greek philosophers further stressed the importance of virtue and stoicism, advocating the improvement of one’s self through constant learning and knowledge.  These teachings and practices formed the foundation for philosophy and psychology as fields of study.

Still, Aristotle was very much his own philosopher. Though he studied at Plato’s famous academy, he was not hesitant to counter or criticize Plato’s philosophical stances on certain issues. Aristotle was the most renowned Ancient Greek philosopher for nearly 2,000 years



Leviathan

by Thomas Hobbes

Thomas Hobbes (5 April 1588 – 4 December 1679), was an English philosopher, best known today for his work on political philosophy. Although Hobbes was a strong believer in the right of sovereigns to rule absolutely, Hobbes developed the political philosophy that laid the foundation for theories like social contract theory that have formed the backbone of Western democracy. Hobbes also wrote about history, mathematics, physics, ethics and philosophy, writing at length about human nature and the strength of self-interest, often referred to as materialism.

Among Hobbes’ work, his most famous and important is Leviathan, titled after the Biblical character. Hobbes’ Leviathan expounds at length upon the structure of society and legitimate government, becoming one of the most influential political philosophies in the West’s history. Leviathan weds social contract theory to an absolute sovereign, calling upon legitimate government to protect the natural rights of its people. Written during the English Civil War, Hobbes argues a strong centralized government is necessary to avoid war and upheaval.
