There is no Dark Side, nor a light side, there is only the Force. I will do what I must to keep the balance as the balance is what keeps me together. There is no good without evil, but evil must not be allowed to flourish. There is passion, yet peace; Serenity, yet emotion; Chaos, yet order. I am the wielder of the flame, the protector of balance. I am the holder of the Torch, lighting the way. I am the keeper of the flame, soldier of balance. I am a Guardian of the Balance. I am a Gray Jedi.Leor Danal reciting The Gray Jedi Code for the first time while in a force trance

The Gray Jedi Code was the code that all Gray Jedi lived by, such as what the Jedi code was for the Jedi. It was written by the first Kage of the order, Leor Danal. He claimed that the code came to him in a vision while he was in a Force Trance.

MeaningEdit

  • There is no Dark Side, nor a Light Side; There is only the Force
    Gray Jedi believed that the Force did not have seperate sides. To them, abilities were neutral, and it was how you used them that made the difference between Jedi or Sith. Different people used different methods to unlock their full potential. Some needed anger, some needed peace. Just because Jedi harnessed peace or Sith exploited anger, did not make either inherently good or evil. The Force had no alignment, that was solely an attribute of the user. This part of the code also applies to the Gray Jedi philosophy of the soul. They believe that everyone has equal potential for good and evil, and that it is the choices a person makes that defines their path.
  • I will do what I must to keep the balance; the balance is what keeps me together
    Balance was central to a Gray Jedi's life. They believed that without balance, the galaxy would fall apart, Thus, they were the champions, and guardians of balance. Although there were certain rules against destroying everything that disrupted any sort of balance, for the most part, The Gray Jedi would do everything and anything in their power to maintain the balance. For them, the ends justified the means. If they needed to destroy a planet to promote balance, then that's what they would do.
  • There is no good without evil, but evil must not be allowed to flourish
    The Gray Jedi held a firm belief that while there was good and evil in everything, there was no good without evil, and no evil without good. Just as there is no dark without light and no light without dark. however, if one side is allowed power over the other, catastrophy can happen. Also, the Gray Jedi realized that evil was neccesary for the balance, but this didn't mean that they had to condone it. Evil was condemned in the Gray Jedi and only given sufferance because of its neccesity to balance. however, they would keep evil in check. They believed that for a balance to be made, the amount of good in the galaxy must always cancel out the evil. Thus they still attacked those doing evil acts to keep this balance in check.
  • There is Passion, Yet Peace
    For a Gray Jedi, you needed passion to survive. What was life without passion? It was nothing. yet, you needed peace in order to temper the passion so as not to be consumed by it..
  • Serenity, Yet Emotion
    It was the same principle. A Gray Jedi needed emotion to fuel his power, yet he needed to remain serene to allow himself to be able to turn the emotion on and off.
  • Chaos, Yet Order
    In order for life to exist, there must be chaos and order at an equal level. Such is the same with the Gray Jedi. A Gray Jedi must be orderly and chaotic both to a point. Sometimes laws need to be broken and sometimes chaos must be brought to order, however neither should be ended permanently.
  • I am the Wielder of the Flame, The Protector of Balance
    The first role of a Gray Jedi was to protect the balance through any means necessary. They wielded what they called the spiritual flame. It would burn to dust those who disrupted the balance of life.
  • I am the Holder of the Torch, Lighting the Way
    The next role of a Gray Jedi was to show the way for others. If there was a way to show those who disrupted the balance the way to balancing their lives, then life would be better for all. Also, a Gray Jedi must light the way for himself, as imbalance could easily take hold without constant vigilance.
  • I am the Keeper of the Flame, Soldier of Balance
    The Gray Jedi would be the army of balance, waging wars against all who would threaten the natural balance of the universe.
  • I am a Guardian of Balance
    The Gray Jedi was first and foremost, a Guardian of Balance in every way possible.
  • I am A Gray Jedi
    This shows that the reciter of the Gray Jedi code understands that to be a true Gray Jedi, he must embody every single one of these traits.
