Members of the Jedi Order are called Jedi Knights. In ancient times it existed knights belonging to a chivalric order called the Knights of the Round Table. Jedi are the Knights of the Round Table of the future. They are well-educated people such as: teachers, philosophers, scientists, engineers, physicians, diplomats and warriors, who value knowledge and wisdom above nationality. They have an ideology and strict way of life; they even have their own religion called Jediism. Their traditional weapon is the lightsaber, the lightest saber ever known in the universe; it weights less than 4 pounds (2 kg).

Luke was an important figure in the Rebel Alliance's struggle against the Galactic Empire. He was only an apprentice Jedi, but his luck and courage made for his inexperience and lack of skills as a Jedi. He got involved in a love triangle with his twin sister; Princess Leia (they didn't know they were siblings) and smuggler Han Solo. He lost the girl when he learned she was in reality his twin sister. Anyway, she fell in love with the bad boy, Han Solo. Why are so many beautiful and smart women attracted to bad boys? I have no idea. Women are so complicated and contradictory that I just gave up. You should do the same.

He truly became a Jedi Knight in his own rights when he completed his training with Yoda, the Grand Master of the Jedi Order. Yoda was so small, but he was one of the most powerful Jedi in the entire universe. So, watch out for the appearances, they get you wrong. If you walk someday into a very small guy, all green, with very long ears; I warn you, he is not from mars... And please, don't bother him and make fun of him for his strange look, leave him alone. That's the best advice I can give you if you want to live.

With the death of his master Obi-Wan Kenobi at the hands of Darth Vader, his father; he became "A New Hope" for the rebellion. He didn't know Princess Leia was his twin sister, he didn't know Darth Vader was his father, he didn't know his mother Padmé had died giving birth... No surprise he looked for his identity during all the trilogies (original, prequel, and sequel), that's a lot of trilogies.

He did well in his fight against the Galactic Empire until the day "The Empire Strikes Back". He had to hide in a strange and freezing planet until the "Return of the Jedi"; you know, the very small, all green, with very long ears guy I warned you to leave alone... Yoda didn't even have to fight. His spirit and meditation were so powerful that it awakened the Force in Luke to defeat Darth Vader in an epic Jedi fight.

But before getting to this point; "The Phantom Menace", the "Attack of the Clones", and the "Revenge of the Sith" had to be overcome before the rise of Darth Vader. After the death of the Emperor, killed by Darth Vader himself, the saga continued.

"The Force Awakens", it always does, as long as there is a Jedi alive, and until the day "The Last Jedi" dies. It has to happen someday, as everything that has a beginning has en ending.

What did Luke learn from his Jedi Masters, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda? Many fighting techniques of course, but also some spiritual awakening and philosophy.

Teaching from Obi-Wan Kenobi:

"Your eyes can deceive you; don't trust them."

As a Jedi, Luke had to be capable to fight blindly, using all his senses, except sight.

"In my experience, there's no such thing as luck."

But there was such thing as Luke that would be the decisive factor to win the war.

"Who's the more foolish; the fool, or the fool who follows him?"

The fool who follows him of course. This way Luke was more foolish than Obi-Wan, who himself was more foolish than Yoda. To think that it could be the other way around would be silly. I'm sorry,... I just can't insult Yoda. I want to live!

Teaching from Yoda:

"Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try."

I've heard something that sounded similar: "To be, or not to be." I'm pretty sure Yoda read Hamlet from Shakespeare in search of inspiration.

"Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering."

I've heard something that sounded similar in the teaching of Buddha. I'm pretty sure Yoda is a reincarnation of Buddha himself.

"In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way."

Now, I'm more than pretty sure. Yoda "IS" the reincarnation of Buddha.

"The fear of loss is a path to the dark side." "Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny."

This Yoda statement came from the experience of the life of former Jedi, Anakin; who experienced the dark side of the Force and became Darth Vader after the loss of the woman he loved, Luke's mother, Padmé.

As a former Jedi, Darth Vader had something to teach Luke. Fathers always have something to teach their son. This is the life lesson he taught to his son:

"I find your lack of faith disturbing."

Indeed, a Jedi lacking faith is disturbing. Hopefully, Luke regained his faith just on time to defeat his father in the final fight. A good boy always listens to his father good advice; it can save his life. It didn't save the father's life, but someone had to die. And it's better if the father dies before the son, cause he is older. When it's the other way around, it's always more tragic.

"Great, kid. Don't get cocky."

Oh!... This is a mistake. This statement has nothing to do here, cause it's not from a Jedi. Who the hell is it from!? I only know one person who can say such a thing in the saga; it must be the bad boy, Han Solo. Why the hell bad boys always get the beautiful princess fall in love with them!? Life is so unfair!

"So, goodnight Luke. Luck is to believe in your lucky star, to believe in yourself, to believe everything is possible... Luck and "by accident" are two different things. In conclusion, Luck is not an accident, but Luke was born by accident, and he was a cocky kid."
