The Jedi Way

I’m not saying that I agree with the mantra and buzz words that seem to occupy a Jedi Night.

I’m not a fan of the over sized cloak either (trust Natalie to seize the moment in style ) but this much of the philosophy I do like. Things rings like a real code to live by. To be by.

What you can do to lead a Life Like a Jedi:

  • Teach patience to others and to yourself.
  • Get along with all people and all living things.
  • Don’t judge someone because of how they look.
  • Find a good thing every day! (It’s easy to get frustrated every day, try and find something positive each day to remember)
  • Start the day with a good attitude.
  • If you see a wrong, right it if you can. If you can’t find someone who can.
  • Don’t lie to others.
  • Don’t steal from others.
  • Don’t dislike things that you don’t understand. Make sure you fully understand someone or something before you pass judgement.
  • Open your heart not to just those who are close to you, but to all humanity. Be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.

Seek Justice, Have Courage, Be Merciful, Show Generosity, Be Faithful, Be Noble, Keep Hope Alive

  • Justice: Seek always the path of Right, unencumbered by bias or personal interest. Recognize that the sword of justice can be a terrible thing, so it must be tempered by humanity and mercy. If the right you see rings true, agrees with others, and you seek it out without bending to the temptation of expediency, then you will earn renown beyond measure.
  • Courage
    More than bravado or bluster, a Jedi Knight must have the courage of the heart necessary to undertake tasks which are difficult, tedious or unglamorous, and to graciously accept the sacrifices involved.
  • Mercy
    Words and attitudes can be painful weapons in the modern world, which is why a Jedi exercises mercy in his or her dealings with others, creating a sense of peace and community, rather than engendering hostility and antagonism.
  • Generosity
    Sharing what’s valuable in life means not just giving away material goods, but also time, attention, wisdom and energy — the things that create a strong, rich and diverse community.
  • Faith
    “Faith” means trust and integrity, and a Jedi is always faithful to his or her promises, no matter how big or small they may be.
  • Nobility
    Although this word is sometimes confused with “entitlement” or “snobbishness,” it conveys the importance of upholding one’s convictions at all times, especially when no one else is watching.
  • Hope
    More than just a safety net in times of tragedy, hope is present every day in a modern Jedi’s positive outlook and cheerful demeanor, and inspires people all around.
