What if?

What if there was a party of neutral force users? Neither good or evil, but balanced? Ever wonder what their code would be? I found this a little while ago and it spoke to me...

I found this(won't say where) but I will give Copywrite laws to the person who made it: Maeglin-Amandil

It goes like this...


There is no good or evil,
There is only balance,
Through balance,
I gain focus,
Through focus,
I gain discipline,
Discipline provides control,
With control,
I gain knowledge,
Knowledge is the key to Understanding.

The code may be flawed, but I believe the rough idea makes sense.

There are actually a few neutral jedi organizations in SW lore, though can't remember them off the top of my head.

Well, there have been numerous cults/groups that use Dark and Light but aren't Jedi or Sith. Because they don't like the ways of the Jedi and Sith.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

Neutrality is the true key to balance. I don't see how Jedi don't see that. How can balance exist if there is no Dark-Side?

I think the Revanites are fairly close. They follow sort of the same teachings as the Sith, though.

The people on Voss are these neutral force users.

George Lucas has explicitly stated that the Force is in balance when the Sith are extinct.


As for the original poster's question, I would suggest he look through this list of Force-based organizations. As other posters have pointed out, there have been sects that share a viewpoint similar to this "neutral" idea.

Sith aren't the only users of the Dark-Side. There are Dark Jedi.

I always viewed them as looked down upon in the Jedi Order though, so they were rare. When, really, you can't have the Light-Side without the Dark-Side.

I'm really just thinking out loud with this, though.

I think the Revanites are fairly close. They follow sort of the same teachings as the Sith, though.
The Jedi are light but don't try to make the galaxy light. The Jedi do not reject dark side concepts nor do they condemn the dark side entirely. They teach it's members not to embrace it but even aside from the Sith there's plenty of dark side religions and followers. The problem is it's the Sith that throw things out of balance by corrupting everything they see and spreading darkness through the galaxy.

The Jedi may use the lightside but what they truly follow is the force. If it's the force's "will" for them not to get involved. They won't. Even if that means many people will die. The Jedi are keepers of the peace but don't force their view on others. This is why they don't abolish slavery or other negative concepts. The Jedi teach not to fear death or mourn someone's loss but to accept it instead.

You can be light while working towards balance.

Pretty much the Jedi don't go "Let's eradicate anything Dark Side related and all who follow it." it's more.. "The Sith are very dangerous and need to be stopped whenever they crop up." The Sith are also the only ones who want to destroy an entire aspect of the force (Many times outright wishing to eliminate the light side entirely.)
