Yes, but we'd love to hear how it drives you. What is your directive as a Jedi, not what code do you follow? Or how does this code push you, drive you towards something?

I'm presently working towards keeping my own proverbial house in order, and only asking that others stay off my proverbial lawn. I'm still working out what that really means to me, but I'll settle for personal differences and clashes resulting in myself and other involved parties simply ignoring each other peacefully.

More than once I've attempted what amounts to giving people a "dose of their own medicine ", and I can say it works about as well as one might expect; i.e., it doesn't. It demands too much of the other party, like the ability to ask oneself "Am I, in fact, wrong?" Without immediately assuring oneself, "no, they're just mean ".

I'll let you all know as soon as I figure out precisely what I'm doing, for now I'm amusing myself by occasionally looking around, spying something and saying, "Well, let's definitely not do THAT". :P

I live with passion and authenticity, having found a path worth the effort of walking. I've left a career and trade behind in pursuit of a way of life more in line with the path, and my own passion.
I guess if I had to make it snappy, I'd go for something like;

Do good and look good doing it.
Do no harm but take no crap.

But it simply comes down to good vibes, and victory.

Passion, authenticity, power, victory.

Well, I haven't been here for very long, but my "mission" if you will has always been to be the voice of reason, to always see both sides of an argument before making a decision, to be the outsider looking in if you will. Because to me, I see the Jedi as peacekeepers, as they normally are, but how can one keep the peace without seeing all angles?

How does that translate into your real world practice, Deimos? What do your efforts look like in the real world?

Passion, authenticity, power, victory.

Typically it's whenever I'm debating someone, or watching two people debate where I usually try to defuse the situation and present both sides to make both sides realize that fighting won't solve anything.

Fighting and debating are two entirely different things.

This guns for hire, even if we're just dancing in the dark.

My personal directive is to do good always. The way this looks in my day to day is that I (try) to always pick what’s right and just. I do community service, I humble myself in conversations (not letting people walk over me but refusing to engage in name calling or being rude; I simply state my opinion and leave it alone), I practice patience, honesty, kindness as best I can. I give all I can when asked. Occasionally I punch but not often lol

I shouldn't have used the term fighting. I merely meant it in the sense of both sides getting too defensive and not even acknowledging the other. That is just unhelpful and illogical and so i try to be the peace keeper and show both sides that the other side may have valid input, even if one doesn't agree with the other.

Honestly when I read this I found it lacking. The first sentence seems an ego trip and the second sentence seems a contradiction. How do you do no harm? Especially if you take no crap?
