One amongst many

The Jedi Code, as written by Kevin Armstrong, is often seen to be the Code of the Light Jedi, and only the Light Jedi. If pushed I would say that I am a Shadow Jedi, yet I firmly believe that the Jedi Code is as applicable to me as it is to any Lightsider.

This is the Darkside code:
There is no peace, there is anger.
There is no fear, there is power.
There is no death, there is immortality.
There is no weakness, there is the Dark Side.

This is a Grey Side code as written by Farer.
There are emotions, yet we have Serenity.
There is Chaos, yet Harmony is produced.
There are passions, yet there can be Balance.
There's often hurry, still we cultivate patience.
There's much ignorance: this knowledge is wisdom

Here is another Grey Code, as written by Starr of Temple of the Jedi Arts
Through pain comes wisdom; But not without ignorance comes knowledge.
There is no power; only the force.
There are no sides; only the whole.
Peace and justice comes to those who are willing
To seek it and grasp it through whatever comes upon them.
No darkness, no light, only understanding.

The Shadow Jedi Code by Z’truk
I am at Peace; for I know Emotion.
I have Power; for I also have Knowledge.
I have Passion; for I am Serene.
I can embrace Mortality; for I know Death
I am balanced through the Force.

Look beyond the words, to the underlying meaning. Are they really so different? Even the Darkside Code?
