Dark Side Edit
The Dark Side is the yang of the Force. It is fear, loss, sadness in its more debilitating forms. It is also quick and seductive as anger, hatred, and Greed. As someone polarize's themselves with the Force the Dark Side will fight for them. Your darker side will knock you senseless, and you will revel in anger and hatred. Simply come to accept that the universe will unfold as it should, and see the futility of such negative agents. Feel the Dark Side slowly slip away as you laugh at the situation. You do this with the knowledge that all the anger and hatred in the world would only leave you feeling empty and hollow inside, filling your heart with fear, loss, and sadness. If you lose yourself to this train of thought and allow it to consume you. Only fear, resentment, jealousy, envy will give you the permission to carry out the actions of an individual sought to do damage to another living being. Would be so engulfed in his/her own heart fail to see what this type of action would lead to. This action alone would lead to destruction of lives that could benefit from a growing light, not a growing darkness. Plain and simple, there is no light or dark side to the Force. This teaching comes from the old code of the Jedi. The light and dark side of the force is what we chose to make it. All Jedi at some point give in to despair and guilt. That is the natural course of things. Light and dark are one and the same. They create a balance in life. To accept this would free one to practice the use of the force in a construtive maner. This teaching come fron the old Jedi order that preceded Master Skywalker. Only did Skywalker learned that there is no real light or dark side to the Force. But what you intend to use it for will determine the outcome. A light jedi can go into battle using only possitive influence up intill it no longer works. Then The Jedi must determine the right course of action to pursue to obtain his goal. Using light or dark techniques are for the person to decide at the time. One must not remain in simple dogma but go beyond all actual thought and allow themselves to be completely united with the Force. Giving without the thought of ever gaining anything back but just to completly serve and dismiss themselves.
- "...Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering..." -Yoda
