Good Time Zone Temple of the Jedi Order.




What do we do as Modern day Jedi when our convictions seem to contradict? Even further, there is a very real idea and a very real thought, what do you do when the LAW of the LAND is contradictory to our chosen practices?

Please resect those and do remember not every one lives and has the same LAWS as you.
It is a very real thing in the world. When you make a choice or you choose a doctrine or a code and then the challenge hits....
What do you do? Any real life examples? Or do we BATTLE every time? Does this ware ya out? Looking forward to what's gunna be here ! May the Force we share be with yall.

Maybe they didnt understand the question. Perhaps if you could explain it in a different way?

No, I understood it well enough.
That answer is the most accurate one you can get for such a broad question.

My answer is that we are obligated to speak our understanding of truth even when it makes us unpopular and that we must always be willing to accept the consequences of people disliking and misunderstanding us. Things are not necessarily right and correct just because they are the law of the land and we are not neccesarily wrong just because we have been silenced by those around us.

My other answer is that one of the ways that we learn is by hearing and acknowledging the feedback of those around us, especially the valid critiques of our flaws by our peers. What a crazy mixed up world where being wise means being able to ignore everyone but also being able to listen to everyone, both at the same time.

People are complicated.

Why the OBLIGATION? Where would that come from?

That obligation is self imposed. Some have higher respect for those that stand by their convictions in difficult moments.
