The Simple Oath: council announcement
I profess before all my fellow Jedi that I, ........... born on ........, without reservation, choose the Jedi path, until I am ready for Jedi Knighthood or I otherwise decide, with all its duties and responsibilities. I shall do that which is right and profess my allegiance to the Force. During that time I promise to do my utmost to uphold the Jedi teachings, and to live a life as is worthy of a Jedi.
Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.

Why the change do we not use the will of the force, I think the will of the force brought me to where I am now. The will of the force is what gave us all the reason to believe in the force and made other who came before us believe. I just don't understand why the need for the change.
Somr of us here do not agree with The Force having a will
This new version still encompasses those that do and those that don't
Just remember that you are allowed to have any oaths that you wish But as this is the official TOTJO one it better that it encompasses all of us
I would go as far to say that the 'allegiance' part could also be removed as well, but this is a step in the right direction
I asked this of ren on skype, but will say it here just so everyone can see
What about the solemn vow for knights? That still has 'will' in it. It ought to be changed to be in line with this new oath

I personally believe in the will of the Force (to me, akin to the Tao of classical Taoism) so I will stand by my original Oath. Anyone is free to do so if that's what they believe too. If they don't, and want to submit a new oath, that is now possible.
