Yep, read that right, you did.
Waiting on Wednesday / Can’t Wait Wednesday
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, and my version is a mix of what I’m waiting to read, whether it’s a new release that is not out yet, or an older book on my TBR shelf, which I really want to read but haven’t got around to it yet.
Here’s my ‘Can’t wait to read’, book for this week:
It’s not strictly a new book, but I am very excited to share this with you, because I really can’t wait to read this! My first thoughts are to laugh and remember the days I actually wrote down my religion was Jediism, and that I was a Jedi Knight, on the 2001 annual census. Oh, those happy, hazy days!
Admittedly, I did it for a laugh as I would say I’m more agnostic than atheist, but when it turned out so many other people did the same thing the Church of Jediism became a ‘religion’ of sorts. ‘Church’ being a gathering of like-minded souls.
Warning: I am also a huge Star Wars fan nerd and have met some of your favourite robots!
I will be reading and writing up my review over the next few days for my Non-Fiction November feature. But I’ve had a sneak peak, and you’ll be surprised, it’s not at all as ‘wacky’ as you may at first think. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised about their philosophies and ethics. And as mad as it sounds, yes, this is taken form the principle of those much-loved, Star Wars films! I shall say no more, until my review…
Become the Force: 9 Lessons on How to Live as a Jediist Master
by Daniel M. Jones,
For anyone who has watched and fallen in love with the Star Wars films and wanted to become a Jediist (just as Daniel M Jones did as a young boy). This is the first and only Jediist Bible.
Daniel M Jones founded the Church of Jediism in 2007 following the Jedi Census phenomenon of 2001; it now has over 500,000 members around the world. This is the book his fans have been waiting for. In it, Daniel outlines the Jedi perspective and provides practical tools for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of how to use the Force in everyday life. A metaphor for the universal life energy that connects us all, the Force can be both light and dark, good and bad. Now, more than ever, it is our responsibility to overcome the Dark Side. This book does not aim to convert, but to inspire its readers to live a life of meaning and purpose according to the universal spiritual teachings of “the way of the Jedi”.
It will include:
• Daniel’s own fascinating spiritual journey and how overcoming personal struggles has awakened him to his purpose.
• A complete toolkit that will allow anyone to genuinely embrace “the way of the Jedi” and use Jedi teachings to empower mind, body, heart and spirit.
• A comprehensive explanation of Jediism as a spiritual movement (a universal desire for self-awareness, spiritual awakening, peace, love and harmony) rather than a religion.
Become the Force shows that the Jedi-minded among us might usher in a new spirituality and shift in global consciousness towards peace and harmony that is more powerful than any we can possibly imagine.
