Dedication

I wish to dedicate The Jedi Jewel series to all seekers of the Jedi philosophy/religion/tradition, who are willing to look where others fear to tread.  May these works deepen your connection to yourself, life and the Force here in this vast Universe as it really is.

Also, my personal thanks to George Lucas for following his dharma, and sharing with the world something worth living and following – Jedi.  Namaste.

May the Force be with you.

Jedi Meditation Calming Technique

 

Close your eyes.

Slowly take in a deep breath and slowly let out a big sigh.  As you do think of yourself letting go of any stress or negative thoughts you are holding onto.  You are seeking the moment, in this moment.  No next moment.  No past moment.  This moment.  Each inhale is breathing in the Force purposefully.  Each exhale is breathing out the negative feelings, while the next inhale will be replacing the vacancy of the negative feelings with the Force, recharging you.

Continue doing the above, slowly inhaling and exhaling.  Continue letting go of the days stresses.  Continue letting go of future stresses.  Let go of all the troubles and trivia that you are holding in your mind at this time.  Forget them.  You do not need them at this time.  This is the time for you and the Force.  Recognize the Force flowing around you.  Recognize the Force flowing through you.  Recognize that there is no time.  Recognize that there is no space.  There is only the Force.  There is only its presence supporting life, penetrating and binding all things with supreme intelligence.  Let go of all else.

Continue slowly inhaling and slowly exhaling.  Feel your body gently relaxing.  Allow yourself to be at peace in the existence of the Force.  Be at peace.  If you need to, say it, “The Force brings me inner peace.”

Continue slowly inhaling and slowly exhaling, imagining the sun within your being.  Feel it sun expanding from within you, warming your being through your extremities and outward.  Feel the sun.  Feel its Force.  Immerse yourself in the Force that lies within the sun within your being.  Bathe in it.

To close, breathe in one last slow, deep breath, exhaling slowly.  Slowly open your eyes.  See the Force in you, in the rest of the Universe.  Recognize that if it exists in all things, it has the solutions to all things as well.  Carry this knowledge with you.

Techniques

A JEDI MASTER IS NOBLE in character, never makes unnecessary movement and never allows the Padawans to indulge in any lost motion either. Through his methods, a Padawan learns control over his body. Through these exercises, he learns to transmit the Force corresponding to his degree of development – the power of his consciousness – into all the various parts and organs of his body. This makes a Jedi’s body conscious and so vitalized that he can feel every part of it as distinctly as he can the inside of his mouth.Little by little, he learns not only to feel all his organs exactly, but also to control them consciously. For example, he can control his heartbeat. To do this, he has to concentrate on a particular point in his body, namely the seat of the Force that compels him to inhale. When he exhales all the air in his lungs and then doesn’t inhale again, something forces him to inhale – forces him until he absolutely must inhale again. What it is that forces him to inhale is harder to discover than what it is not. Certainly it isn’t the nose, which doesn’t actually breathe at all, but is merely an opening through which he can breathe. It isn’t his lungs either, for he can clearly feel them as working instruments in the breathing process.

Finally, a Padawan discovers that a certain force, located in the region of the heart, causes him to inhale and controls his breathing. When he thinks himself into this point, he can speed up or slow down his heart beat at will. It’s wonderful to have so much control over the body.

Up to this point, a Padawan concentrated on his breathing exercises with slow, regular breathing in which he has to inhale the air and then he has to exhale it again. The next step in his concentration exercises requires him to practice them differently. As long as he inhales and exhales, he’s identifying himself with his body. But the truth of the matter is that his body is really doing the inhaling and exhaling, not him. The body lives because the Force breathes the breath into it – just as it breathes life into all life. It prompts its intelligence into his being. The Force magnifies its presence through breathing. Everything is alive because its physical being inhales the breath of the Force. A Padawan learns that he needs unity with the Force within him, to master his relationship with the Force within himself and outside of himself. Thus, his body inhales the Force and that gives the body life. As long as he believes that he is the one that is breathing, he identifies his consciousness with his body instead of with the Force. On the other hand, when he experiences in his consciousness that his body is inhaling itself and then again breathing out, giving himself freedom, he can experience the marvelous transition out of the person – animated body he has been up to the present – into his true self.

From here, a Padawan practices that it is not he inhaling and exhaling, but he is being inhaled and exhaled by the Force within the body. It is the Force compelling his existence, not he. With every breath he will have the feeling, during inhaling, that he his body is filling with life-giving power and his body is inhaling him; and in exhaling, that he is withdrawing himself from the body and remaining separate from it, within himself, until the next breath. When he succeeds in doing this, he will experience something similar to the death of the body, when he will withdraw himself from it as his body exhales him for the last time. He is needing to practice this until it is mastered before progressing any further.

  1. This is brilliant Seti, where did you find this?

  2. Darth Draconis- This is from the Jedi Jewel Series. I have the entire series on pdf. Interested? (Evil grin.) The complete work (348 pg.) is here:

  3. Thank you very, very much.

  4. This is interesting…

    I found “The Jedi Jewel” in a series of .doc files in 2004 which I compiled into a .pdf in 2005. When I tried to share it, no one really seemed to care. It’s kind of interest to see, now in 2009, that as late as 2007 the document was still in circulation.

    Thanks for the chuckle and smile!
