This is something I find refreshing as a new approach to the Force. I've long thought that the Jedi asceticism was unhealthy-- hacking everything in your life out in order to pursue the light seemed unnatural. Even priests of the various religions (Roman Catholic, Buddhist, etc) are still allowed attachments on some level. They are permitted to have the full array of emotions. But to hack out any family connection and forbid passion, anger or fear. How does one function as a healthy sentient that way when you are likely ignoring an entire half of your being? I like a oneness with the Force like Chirut pursued. What if that meant allowing passion coupled with temperance, anger and fear being acknowledged and affirmed but not wielded as weapons, where attachments make you stronger not weaker, because there is a greater understanding that all life is tied to each other? And what if you can call on dark sided abilities (eg, Force lightning) to perform acts of good such as defending a loved one or an innocent bystander. What if fury could be tempered with joy, and the balance in the middle is that Balance in the Force that goes back to what Mace Windu thought Anakin would bring. If that is the case, I have no problems with the Jedi Order yielding to something more balanced and organic.
