"All energy from the Living Force, from all things that have ever lived, feeds into the Cosmic Force, binding everything and communicating to us through the midi-chlorians. Because of this, I can speak to you now."
―The spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn communes with Yoda[src]

A Jedi adherent of the Living Force philosophy.

The Living Force was a view on the Force, accepted by the minority of Jedi throughout ages, the Living Force was thought to be present in most living beings, surrounding and penetrating them, thus making all living things connected by it. The Jedi believed the Living Force relied on their instincts and were attuned to other living beings around them, they were mindful of the future and the possible consequences of their actions, but remained focused on the present.[1]

The Living Force was viewed as having both the light and the dark side, the Jedi always had to be mindful of their actions to avoid the temptations of the dark side. Through following the Living Force, several Jedi were able to retain their identities after their physical death, becoming one with the Force and able to manifest themselves as Force ghosts. Proponents of the Living Force view, such as Qui-Gon Jinn, espoused a philosophy of "living in the moment", relied heavily on their instincts and concentrated more on sensitivity to living things, rather than fulfilling destiny, which was one of the main tenets of the Unifying Force philosophy.[2]
