Wow, it's such a good question and hard to pick because all of them affected me, not sure if more or less but surely in different ways.

"There is no Emotion, there is Peace" maybe. That was the first line I've ever read and for some reason, I didn't think about how it means denying our emotions. However, a lot of people, much in the Jedi Community gets this meaning but I think that's not what is for, and anyway, not everything should be taken literally. I'm a particularly emotional person and since being an empath, I cannot ignore anything which relate to emotions. I think it's rather that the parts in the Jedi Code lines after "there is no..." relate to the illusions or the details of the large pic and the ones after "there is" relate to the bigger picture, and that's so simple. For me it doesn't sound like denying or pushing away, rather like being illuminated. I don't even necessarily agree with that only reason can make good decisions and feelings not. It's good if you're in touch with your feelings, especially with your gut feelings and intuition, and they often come as emotional responses. It's only that the drama - which is an ego's way to avoid handling the exact feeling so it twists into something else - that should be avoided, and this line, interpreted in the good way, helps me to ground myself everytime I need it.

I would have to say that it is probably either the line "Emotion, yet Peace," or "Chaos, yet Harmony." This is because I use them both as mantras to help calm and focus my mind during times of stress. I use "Emotion, yet Peace," when I am having issues with anger or frustraton (more internal). And "Chaos, yet Harmony," when I am feeling overwhelmed by the people/events around me; such as when things get especially crazy at work (like today).

Greetings

No Death there is Ki the Force

It depends on how you view death. I dont always see it as an end to life as such it have many meanings we are surrounded by it everyday. It is circle of energy. When we breath in we give life to our internal body when be breathe out it is the death of that breath but in turn it gives life to plants and do for us in return. The death of a tree gives fire wood flame is life giving. The end is just a new beginning some things just change

My line..I am everything nothing and all this is in between I am Ki :)

"Emotion; yet peace" is my favorite line, too. When I was just starting out, it was the only line I could remember, and whenever I'm facing something challenging, it's the first line to come into action.

Very similar to what Sinistra said, I believe it means showing and experiencing peace in the presence of emotion. The storm may be swirling all around you, but it doesn't consume you and take over; you can still maintain inter stillness.

Nice question, Master O.
