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.

    • I thought I might provide some sources. Check this out: www.accessconsciousness.com/classtype_details.asp?cid=17 www.accessconsciousness.com/class_details.asp?cid=41691 There is a blog post about it too: access-consciousness-blog.com/2013/06/is...80%99re-looking-for/ "There is another way, however. The “love” you’re looking for is possible through being you, says Heer. “What if instead of striving for love you were willing to have gratitude, caring, and no judgment? If you were willing to choose that instead, it would take you out of all the judgments that are attached to that program of love.”" Access is all about deprogramming from society. For that reason, it IS considered a cult in many peoples' views. Any group that is hellbent on separating you from society is viewed that way, is it not? *shrugs* I have no judgment of that. ;)

On a serious note though, One of the things im looking forward to once Ive moved, is the chance to explore the native american cultures further. Unfortunately a lot of the exposure Ive had, has either been at formal events where theres no time to spend with the speakers one on one, or through people Ive met in passing who's stories I wasnt really sure of!

    • Reunderstanding Addiction (Last post by Adder)
    • I love it when data makes me reassess my view of things, as it disagree's with my experiences, but I think it shows important information about how rat's might compete socially. For human's I think it might be a bit more complex, but I place a lot of value in carefully associating elements of 'belief' into changing ones mindset's and worldviews to alter or distance oneself from bad habits - so if it works, it works!!!
    • Aurebesh (Last post by Mica)
    • It's still pretty cool. My Jediism draws heavily on Star Wars for inspiration. I agree with Connor, though, that it would take credibility away from the Jedi order to begin using the Aurebesh as some sort of sacred script akin to Hebrew.

    • How to overcome our biases (Last post by Arcade)
    • Quote: Anyways, if anyone is interested, this is the link to the test she talks about: implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/ Thanks, Alethea! I spent a couple hours on the site and found the results interesting. For the majority of the tests I had "no automatic preference" (gender, sexuality, disability, Native Americans, Arab Muslims, etc.), but apparently I have a "slight preference" for black people over white people and young compared to old, as well as a "slight association" of European Americans with 'American' and Asian Americans with 'Foreign'. I think that's all pretty fair and realistic, though I'll probably get a slight kick in the head by one of my oldest and closest friends due to the results of that last one. I was also fairly neutral where religious discrimination was concerned. Essentially, the test reported that I have no religious prejudices, but my preferences were still ranked (highest to lowest): Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, then Christianity. This was interesting, as I don't often think about Judaism or have positive or negative feelings about the religion. Maybe that played into the results, I don't know. I appreciate you posting that link, Alethea. I think taking the tests is worthwhile for any Jedi, even if they aren't completely accurate. As you suggested, they might at least help you think about things (that you probably didn't even realize needed to be considered) from additional angles.
