Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.
A shortened version of the old Jedi code, circa ancient Republic era.
So many people believe what they want to in this galaxy, and it is amazing. We all have freedom to choose. And yet, sometimes lines are blurred between what is right and what is radical. The Jedi Code was in part the fabric of society for many a year, until the Empire all but wiped it out, along with the Jedi themselves. We have seen that remote world's such as Jedha still support the belief.
I believe in the Force and the Order.
But yet... The Jedi firmly believed that attachment was forbidden. No love, lest it corrupt you and bring you to the Dark Side. And though that way of thinking may have died with the old Jedi in the Purge, it is unknown whether Luke Skywalker supports them or not. So I believe the old Jedi were wrong, at least partially. Love can define you, and enriches your life. If the Force truly surrounds us all, and if the love is true, then I believe love is even necessary.
So what DO I believe? Well, it's my mantra, you see it on many of my posts.
Knowledge is Power. Use it Wisely.
Knowledge. Power. Wisdom.
With all three you will be a great person. Without, you will lose your way.
Without Knowledge you can never truly have Power, through Power comes Wisdom, and with Wisdom you may learn how to use your Knowledge.
Those are my beliefs.
What the heck?
A stack of holobooks just toppled over. There's no chance it was a crossbreeze, not down here. Oh crap. Oh crap. I...I don't think I'm alone down here. I'm gonna get back to the surface now, definitely spooked. Come on, Eights.
Let's get out of this place. •••
