does anyone happen to have any information on the teachings of the Gray Jedi? I'd be interested to read that.

Moved this to a more appropriate location. I have not done alot of research on Grey Jedi teachings but can also look up Potentium (another name for the Greys)

Potentium simply believe in that there is no dark side of the Force. The "Dark Side" comes from the user.

I've seen one image of Jedi, where it says that Grey is what walks in-between and Shadow encompasses it. As far as I understand of Grey Jedi, they are ones who walk a fine line in-between where they do not give into the Dark Side. While a Shadow could be describe as a means to end.

I guess on the version of shades of grey, Shadow Jedi and Grey Jedi can be very different and yet similar. Though to me, they seem one and the same. But I do not know much about "Shadow Aspect" at all. All I know is that it is about wholeness and balance.

The 'shadow jedi' are just like the light jedi, and the dark. we are (how to put this) we study both aspects of the force, the good and the bad. and so mix white and black and we have gray! a jedi is balanced, or so they should be. and the gray jedi are very balanced as they dont just look at one part, but the whole force. or the whole picture if it is easier to understand. I am a gray jedi but not quite finished yet with my learning so i hope my explanation is helpful

Absalutly true.... But to clarify also on your post having learned both the light and dark side my self over the years as an outside (non-Relgious) force user (untill now), it's the same concept as the ying yang theory where by definition you can't have one without the other, a grey jedi looks at the force/ world as a whole and not from one point of view but from all aspects and angles.

There for a grey jedi is able to look at any situation and call on the force and use it within reasonable limitation and can use any part of the force whether we need to use light or dark side tactics to our advantage.

hope this helps buddy :cheer:

Stand too close to, or too far from a painting and its hard to comprehend the whole...find the right spot in the middle and the whole thing makes sense.

We do what is needed...sometimes its viewed as light....sometimes not so....you cannot have one without the other...

They have a good deal of info on greys in the great jedi holocron...and wookiepedia has some info...or you can peek around and you'll find some of us hanging about...

Here is a way I think of it, Grey Jedi are like dogs, closely related to wolves, maybe even half-breeds themselves, but they are not wolves (Dark Aspect). Dogs are not as dangerous to sheep versus wolves.

Wolves always get a bad rap...just for doing what nature needs of them....thinning the herd isn't necessarily a bad thing...too many sheep will leave behind a barren field....

Coincidentally my animal spirit is a wolf (I'm part Cheyenne Indian)...I learned about it when I was 15....

We all follow the Force. Labels only have whatever meaning we give them. In the end, we're all just spiritual people.
You can travel for years, through mountains and deserts, and never find it. That is because it was always with you.

    • Quote: Now that Aqua is kind of inventising who is interested in multiple Orders be connected, i am kind of wondering how Jediism can be taken seriously? If i walk out on the street with a sign which says i am a member of the temple of the Jedi order they will laugh. Not that i care because i choose what to believe but i think this way of thinking needs alot more positive attention. -Doomeniek There will be those who won't understand and will laugh. Then, there will be those who understand and show respect. In order for us to be taken seriously, there must also be those who laugh.
    • My vision of an atomized Jedi community (Last post by Aqua)
    • Quote: The community has tried over and over again to unite under a single banner. In general, arrogance has been blamed for our failure to do that. This master doesn't want to give up a title, etc. The more I think of it, I don't know that this was a failure after all. Was arrogance involved? Perhaps. We're human. But maybe our diversity was worth protecting as well. I have no desire to see uniformity in our community. I celebrate our diversity. I want us to embrace it. One banner will not cover us all. Maybe that is best. Are you asking for a single banner? Or are you asking to allow yourself to know other banners? If the temple have tried it over and over again, there must be something that went different than expected? If masters want to hold there title, let them have their title. If people wish to stay in one order, let them be in one order. If you go to church, every Catholic church is different? But all connected to one group like feeling. I do not say that is must be like a Catholic ruling system but Celebrate our diversity can be by connecting multiple ways of seeing. And love being all different. Being human, every human is unique, but we are all human right? One banner? Ore multiple banners? A group has different members.

    • Quote: I guess it's great that you don't employ arbitrary special pleading. So how do you respond then to the criticism that your illustration, of what a Sithistic religion is, does not discriminate by any variable criterion and is therefore either obsolete, since we have more widely understood and more linguistically fitting labels, or, in the worst case, ill-defined? 1. Normally over the net it is in text, or perhaps a vid, in person it is normal verbally with nonverbal cues. 2. Yes 3. maybe 4. no
