- "How am I to know the good side from the bad?"
"You will know, when you are calm. At peace, passive."
- ―Luke Skywalker and Yoda
The light side of the Force was an aspect of the Force. The Light Side of the Force was aligned with calmness and was used for knowledge and defense. The Jedi were a major practitioner of the light side, and were the mortal enemies of the Sith, which followed the dark side of the Force.
- "A Jedi uses The Force for Knowledge and Defense...never for attack.'"
- ―Yoda talks about The Force
The light Side of the Force was primarily used for defensive abilities as opposed to aggressive ones. Those who used the light Side could use general Force powers such as Telekinesis and specific Light side powers such as coming back as a Force Ghost.
