I have been collating some data to put together for a kind of holocron of inspiration, and while transcribing some quotes from Jedi Fallen Order, a beautiful message appeared.

I wanted to share it for all of us who may be walking through Force-given Trials as a reminder that, while faith and hope might make for the Light Side, it's the choosing to continually rise up that makes us Jedi.

"Yes, it is difficult, but with persistence and the Force as your ally, you can overcome any obstacle. Focus. The Jedi do not seek aggression, but we stand against it. The Force is there to shield us. The obstacles in the path define the path. What stands in the way becomes the way. And where is the Force? In you, around you. It connects you. There are times when emotions, pain, exhaustion tricks you, making you feel cut off, isolated. This is an illusion. It may seem out of reach, but you remain connected through the Force. Feel that energy around you. The Force is with you, it connects you. So keep failing, keep getting back up. That is the only way to succeed. Do not allow yourself to be weighted down by ego and pretense. Let go of what you fear to lose and rise up.

Keep getting back up. So long as you can get up, you are still in this fight. Hold the line, Trust only in the Force. Don't let fear break your connection to the Force. Failure is not the end, but a necessary part of the path. Where there is hope, there is always a chance. Remember, persistence reveals the path.

So get up. You're not dead yet. All of your failures are in the past and it is what you choose to do next that is important."

A guy I know once told me that there are 3 types of people, Sheep who live in fear and follow the heard for protection. Wolves, who prey on sheep and often use fear to manipulate them. Sheepdogs who are assigned to protect the sheep from the wolves.

We as Jedi are meant to be the guardians of those who cannot defend themselves. We don't live as the sheep live because that's not us. We don't draw our power from the world but from the Living Force which reveals all things to us once we learn how to receive it's knowledge. That knowledge sets Jedi free from fear and gives us peace in the middle of any storm. We can instantly see the wolves for what they are and take the appropriate actions to protect the heard.

Thanks for sharing that Roz. Blessings on your project!
