Code Meaning by Duo

I've just finished doing a lot of research on the Jedi Code, and came up with this.

There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
(There is no chaos, there is harmony.)
There is no death, there is the Force. - The original Code

The different Jedi Code was also seen written like this:
Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.
Jedi respect all life, in any form.
Jedi serve others rather then ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.
Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.

Here's the meaning:

There is no emotion, there is peace:
Emotions are a natural part of living. Jedi are not immune to feeling emotions. This tenet is not to say that emotion does not exist but that it ought to be set aside. Emotions must be understood first, and it is a young Jedi's duty to explore his feelings. Unless a Jedi can confront his thoughts and feelings, he will never achieve peace. Emotions, then, are not to be overcome or denied, but rather understood and dealt with.

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge
A Jedi must be circumspecting and try to understand the world that is surrounding him. That ignorance does not exist is, of course, a flat-out lie or gross misunderstanding. Ignorance is a part of life but it must not be feared. Master Yoda demonstrated this to the young Luke Skywalker on Dagobah when he acted like a fool: even the foolish can be wise. A Jedi must use not only his rational mind but also his intuitive mind in order to ascertain the truth of a situation.

There is no passion, there is serenity
This tenet is essentially a repetition of the first. But this refers more directly to situations of extreme stress in which a Jedi might be tempted to react strongly. That a Jedi must draw his weapon only in defense is an expression of this tenet. While emotions and intuition must be understood and utilized in a Jedi's daily life, he must never act rashly. Passionate use of power leads to the dark side. A Jedi must always act with a calm hand and an even temper.

There is no chaos, there is harmony (even though some dont agree with this, I'll explain it anyway)
This statement reflects the cosmology of the Jedi Order. Whereas uninitiated beings see the universe as a chaotic and disconnected place, a Jedi realizes that all things are interconnected and, more importantly, interdependent. While an uninitiated being sees sorrow and tragedy in the workings of the universe, through the Force, a Jedi is able to interpret and understand even the most painful of life's events. Without this cosmology, surely the first tenets of the Jedi Code would be meaningless. After all, how could one possibly forsake love and compassion if he did not understand the truth of the universe: there is no chaos, there is harmony.
"Death is a natural part of life." Minor inconveniences such as failure, disappointment, and disagreement are also inevitable and should be taken in stride. Jedi do not deny the fact that tragic and terrible things happen; they merely point out that tragedy is simply another part of life.

There is no death, there is the Force
A Jedi must always be ready for death. As a warrior not only in combat but also in day-to-day life, it is easy to fail and fall. It is quite possible to kill a Jedi, and it happens often. Death, however, is not a tragedy and is merely a part of the life cycle. Without death, life could not exist. This tenet represents a darker side of the Jedi Order, the side that accepts, indeed embraces, death, rot and corruption of corporeal forms. As such, Jedi do not fear death nor do they mourn it overmuch. A Jedi, after all, must celebrate death if he is to also celebrate life.
Im doing this, because what I have to say will be long. So PLEASE bear with me.
