I also have decided that responding to you in a thought provoking manner does no one any good, so when I do respond it is understood that it will not provoke thought within you.

Translation, given your cop out over the quotes I recently put in front of you and your request here. Request denied
You don't want a response, don't post.
With all due respect Vandor, this is the Holocron forum. I think it's pretty widely accepted that if anyone specifically requests that no one posts in their Holocron - that request should be honored.
Moreover, as a moderator I probably have an obligation to remove posts from one's Holocron if they ask it.
Not sure if there's a formal policy in that regards, but it seems common sense.

I'm going on vacation for a week in a few hours. Sun, sand, surf, views, read, walk, eat and sleep. "I" like doing what "I" want when "I" want to. "I" have a new underwater camera to try out.

I'm thinking all this aspects thing is a personality preference thing. The pressing need to assert one's view on and criticize others is nothing more than self validation. Defending one's beliefs publically because you're not sure of yourself. This is probable meta so I will say this about me. I find defining me as a particular aspect limits me. I'm not: light, dark, or shadow. I am all of that plus and I'm OK with it. If I need to be one thing or another I'll be that if it serves me and when it doesn't it doesn't. That is my problem with some discussions here. I can't see some points of view. After a bit of time I don't want to. The are limiting, immature, stubborn, ego serving points of view (personality assertion) not worthy of my time and energy. I expect more of me. I allow myself to be free and as expansive as I am capable of now and able to grow to be. Some may not understand this and that is OK for them but not for me.

The word you're looking for is "irrelevant". Third time.

Remember when Serius Black told Harry Potter: "We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are."?

He was lying - to make the clueless feel good.

Nothing says "continue to be my pawn" like telling someone to have hope - like Palpatine "watching Anakin's career, intently".

The funny part? You're so dogmatically deluded that you will continue clinging to your idol even after being shown the workings of your ensnarement.

I've been thinking about this for a while, seems to apply to me just fine:
We welcome those who choose to follow one of the three Aspects as well as those who prefer an alternative road, regardless of religious, cultural or ethnic background.

David said...

I've taken that to heart, it explains a lot of things around here.

It may be the best thing David has ever said to me.

Some don't like that. Thank you David.

I am the person responsible for my destiny and I prefer it that way. No one cares about me better than me. If I make a mistake, I accept responsibility, fix it and learn from it. I hate hearing people make excesses and allowing themselves to be victims of circumstances. They're avoiding responsibility to themselves and trying. Believing If they don't try they don't lose, never realizing that's the very definition of a loser. I can tolerate and even be proud of someone that tries, fails and try again but have little patience for those that don't.

I was talking to a friend yesterday and he commented he's never seen anyone have so much shit happen in their life handle it so well. I said thank you, I'm a lucky guy.

I'm still thinking this Jedi Community thing in just Taoism with a Star Wars wrapper. The Shadow Aspect seems to share a lot of Taoist traits. So now I have to question myself, what value would the Shadow Aspect add to my Taoist inclination?

If you are inclined to Taoism, no aspect will add anything other than what you want to see it as.

To write is a sacred act. It deserves more respect.

That is a very pretty thought, but writing is really no different than any other basic human distraction. Don't get me wrong I love writing, but it's no more special than, say, retreading tires. What makes a thing beautiful is not the act itself but the passion involved in its execution.

David working in his woodshop, Khaos' motion classes, Vandor working on his swords, it's all easily as beautiful as poetry could ever be.

Given enough time the water settles and it becomes clear enough to see through. Quiet reflection has been good for me. The more I meditate the clearer the view I have of the world around me.

It is useless to let self doubt enter into you mind. Confidence is vital to success. If you believe you can then you can. Distractors obviously don't share your belief so it is best to ignore them and let them go their own way.

The mountain doesn't care about your relative position to the wet paper bag.

But one thing is for certain. Without the distractions of wet paper bags, we'd have nothing left to speak of than mountains - conquered or not.

Or... put you on the foes list so as to never be tempted to speak to you again.

You get one guess as to which has happened.
