Hm, I'm not sure if that's a good idea. I think different Force sects is worth the risk.

Then they should at least allow people to be trained in the Je'daii Order and then return to their homeworld and serve as knights. Force users in fighting roles are much more capable to face some threats than non-Force-users are.
The Je'daii would keep watch over them and call them back if they think they are too close to falling to the dark side.

Hmm, I'm not sure about the first line... since "the wise knows nothing but seeks knowledge", maybe the old Ignorance, yet knowledge. would still be better.

Also, I like the line "There is no death, there is only the Force."... can't we keep it somehow?
I not really sure if many Force sects bring enough, or anything to the table. They can fulfil different roles yes, but the Je'daii Order can have sects within its organisation. And I'm still sticking with the pacifism part, the Je'daii Order are not protectors of the galaxy, but peacekeepers. If they advocate violence they go against everything they stand for, and risk falling to the dark side. This is because as soon as you start learning to use the Force as a weapon, it becomes dangerous because you have to make the choice of how to use it. By the way of the light, or the darkness. Not sure what you mean by your last point though about the first line.

I suppose the final line is also important... so Je'daii don't attempt to prevent their deaths as they study the Force.

How about:

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no death, there is the Force.
There is emotion, yet peace.
There is passion, yet serenity.
There is chaos, yet harmony.
There is light, yet dark.
There is only the Force.
