Those were the Movies,
This is Real!
A belief in the
Universal Force, be it Energy, God, Chi, Nature, or Science, is more than just a
fictional concept. The ways of the Jedi are ancient and fundamental. Its wisdom
has always been there for those who sought it.
Jediism is a spiritual path that developed from the
works of George Lucas and his Star Wars saga. Today Jediism or the
Jedi Realist movement is followed by thousands of people world-wide and is
recognized as a religion. Here is where Eastern philosophy intersects with
metaphysics, psychology, and Judeo-Christian teachings. The ancient sage,
Nostradamus, prophesized a “religion of the seas,” or the force. Jediism may
very well be the next great religion. It remains to be seen if it will
retain the name "Jedi" or be called by a different name, but it is indeed,
the religion of the seas.

The Maryland Jedi Order does not emphasize religion in the
traditional sense. We are likeminded individuals who follow a personal path to
enlightenment. This means different things to different people, but as a group,
we recognize a Living Force and commit to making our lives and the world a better
place. We follow the laws of the land, serve others,
and strive to do and be what is right and good. We shall also teach the wisdom
we learn to those curious and agreeable to learning, growing, and serving.
May the light of the Force guide you and be with you,

practiced the ways of the Jedi for years without putting a name to it.
I am a Star Wars and Star Trek fan, but I am not a gamer. To me life is the best
game of all, so that is where I focus my activities. To me being a Jedi Master
means that I am committed to improving myself, the conditions around me, and
passing on wisdom to those agreeable to learning."
Science, String Theory,
and Jedi Mysticism
By Master Zindel
String theory came about in an attempt to find one
theory for everything in the universe. It was one of Einstein’s great ambitions,
which he didn’t get to finish. Those who came after him built upon it. String
Theory is what was developed and it holds that the fundamental building blocks
of matter are microscopic filaments of vibrating energy that are in the shape of
a string, millions of times smaller than electrons, protons, and neutrons.
This theory takes the idea of our 3 dimensional world plus
time (= 4 dimensions) and mathematically and conceptually adds 6 more
dimensions. These extra dimensions are microscopic in size so we cannot perceive
them. After a while of studying string theory, physicists ran into a problem.
They found that there were really 5 string theories and they could not
mathematically account for these theories existing among themselves
Meanwhile, there was another theory making a sensation in
the scientific circles called Super Gravity theory. This theory accounted for a
total of 10 dimensions plus time, and that meant according to this theory there
are 11 dimensions in total.
The string theorists grabbed on to this and did some math.
This was a very exciting time within the community, for the physicists believed
that they might finally be onto a unified theory of everything. This 11th
dimension was seen by the string theorists as a way to unite the 5 different
string theories so that they can all make sense. The result of this was
something called M theory, where M stands for membrane. It now appears that the
universe is not only made up of strings of vibrating energy, but that the
strings are all woven together like a giant quilt or membrane.
So what all of this means to me is that the fundamental makeup
of our universe; space time and every thing that is called matter, is energy.
Big surprise, huh? Since this energy vibrates in different frequencies,
accounting for the diversity of matter around us it seems to me that the implications are kind of profound. What we call
Jedi mysticism is continually being proven by science.
So when someone tells you that Jedi
mysticism is nothing but foolishness, ask them if they realize that there
is more not there than is there to the chair they sit on. For this is true;
there is vastly more space between all the electrons, protons, and neutrons that
make up the chair than there is of the any real material. Then they might ask,
what’s the matter with you? And you would answer, “Exactly!
What’s the matter with me is really all energy.” At this point I am sure that
you have lost them, but probably some day they will get it and much more than
