We, as Jedi do a lot of different things. We always have fun, but some things must be done, that are not particularly fun. We do it anyway. When our feelings, who we refer to as our Dead friends, tell us to get off our Ass...we do EXACTLY that!
As a Jedi, you always have to be willing to say YES to your feelings or Dead Friends. Whichever is the easiest way to swallow the reality for you. Dead people are all around you. They are helping you. They are not hurting you. If you are an asshole, they might fuck with you, because they think it is funny. They are never going to hurt you. They are your friends. They get mad if you ignore them, so they might mess with you to get your attention.
You have to say “YES”! This is not fully Jim Carrey in “Yes Man”. You are not saying yes to everyone around you, you are saying yes, when your Dead Friends say to do something. This is very different then just being a “Yes Man” to everyone around you. Sometimes saying Yes to your Dead Friends, is saying “Go Fuck Yourself” to Mick Akers or Scott Gulbransen.
You know the feeling. It’s often followed by a statement of “I should have listened to my feelings and did that, I knew I should have. Those are your Dead Friends. You know the ones you say no to all their good ideas. An idea is not your own. An idea comes from the Universe. That means every idea, is a fantastic idea from your Dead Friends.
Now hear me out, that does not mean every idea should be executed. It means every idea should be evaluated and considered when it comes from your Dead Friends. Consider them as your closest friend. You are them and they are you. They are with you already and always.
The more you forget to listen to yourself, the less your friends talk to you. Then, you become depressed and uncreative. That’s because your friends had lost contact with you. You ignored them too long. They run and get scared, like a young child does when his or her feelings are hurt. You need to treat your friends as if they are a small child. Would you scream or get angry at a small child for a mistake. It is the same principle with your Dead Friends. Cut them, which is yourself some slack.
I was always so hard on myself. I still am at times, but I have gotten way better. I remind myself that my Dead Friends easily scared off when I am an asshole to myself. You know what I mean...criticism, negativity, guilt, and shame. All of these actions are very hard on your feeling and friends.
Be easy on yourselves. Think of your whole body as an Entity of a complete Universe itself. Your body expects you to make the decisions that are best for the whole group as in your body, soul and mind. Listen to your Dead Friends, they know what is best for you.
