Mobirise

Chivalry

In order to truly overcome his own desires and selfish needs, a knight needs to embrace the code of Chivalry, always being fair, just and humble.

Mobirise

Courage

Courage is not defined by stand-alone actions, but by who you are consistently; it is the courage to look inside and overcome yourself in a consistent manner.

Mobirise

Honour

Honour is one of the corner stones of Knighthood, simply because Order is achieved by knowing the true Self. Honour is supported by Trust – in yourself and in others.

Mobirise

Integrity

Integrity defines who you are at the core, behind all the masks and stories, and the images inside your mind.

Mobirise

Humility

A knight knows when to be humble, when it is time to speak and when it is time to remain silent. 

Mobirise

Loyalty

To be loyal is to know when to lead and when to obey, to follow a leader with a pure heart and without any boundaries.

Mobirise

Courtesy

Knights are a part of an Order, of a Knighthood, and courtesy is one of the MUST qualities in a knight. You cannot be a part of chain of command without certain respect and courtesy.

Mobirise

Charity

A knight of any rank knows that you shall pass everything on to those below, so they can strive to be better - even surpassing the knight. Charity opens your heart and that of others; it brings true inner peace.

Wisdom

A knight must have the ability to discern, to separate fact from fiction. A knight must not act out of haste nor illicit malicious gossip as both show lack of wisdom.

Chivalry: All around us old values and principles are gradually being forgotten, replaced by greed, and the desire for immediate satisfaction. In order to truly overcome his own desires and selfish needs, a knight needs to embrace the code of Chivalry, always being fair, just and humble, and thinking of as well as putting the other first. The world needs a return to Chivalry to create a better order, finer manners and inspire us to be better versions of ourselves no matter what we are doing, or who we are. Without cutting corners or looking the other way, there is only Chivalry.

Courage: Most people think that true courage means overcoming obstacles and the challenges life presents, but the true challenge and the true struggle is within. Courage is not defined by stand-alone actions, but by who you are consistently; it is the courage to look inside and overcome yourself in a consistent manner. Courage is needed for one to give up his fears and take responsibility over his own life, and a certain courage is demanded of a knight to imbue responsibility in others through personal example.

Honour: Honour is one of the corner stones of Knighthood, simply because Order is achieved by knowing the true Self. It is a doorway to that exact place, demanding that we hold ourselves together even at times when we are tempted to fall apart; it calls upon us to follow our highest principles and prevents us from straying into dark places. Honour is supported by Trust – in yourself and in others. 

Integrity: Integrity defines who you are at the core, behind all the masks and stories, and the images inside your mind. It is the bridge between images and idea and real outer action. What you say is who you are and what you do, without contradiction.
Integrity means acting upon the truth, acting upon the fire within you.
Integrity includes knowing when you are wrong, acknowledging it and moving to change your ways if needed; and even if you have lied, to come clean and straighten your ways. For Integrity is a quality within us all.

Loyalty: When the moment of truth comes, loyalty is put to the test. It is not only to be loyal to others or to a certain cause but to be loyal and responsible to your own self-knowledge even when things are not working well. Loyalty means to overcome things in the name of a greater cause, in the name of a selfless cause. To be loyal is to know when to lead and when to obey, to follow a leader with a pure heart and without any boundaries, to sacrifice one’s self if so needed.
Be loyal to yourself, then to another; if you try to do it the other way around, it will backfire - first know thy Self. 

Humility: A knight knows when to be humble, when it is time to speak and when it is time to remain silent. Humility means respect, respect those who are bigger, wider, smarter than you. Humility teaches us to be soft like water, to open up to bigger truths. Without humility no progress can be made, no enrichment of the mind and no true learning. You learn when you are humble and quiet, not when you deem to know it all.

Courtesy: Let us be honourable to one another, and only then dare to approach relations with God. Courtesy is similar to chivalry, enabling us to be polite and gentle with one another, and is the only way to have a meaningful relationship with others and yourself. If you cannot find courtesy within yourself, you cannot be gentle with yourself and therefore with others. Lack of courtesy will only create barriers that will isolate you.
Knights are a part of an Order, of a Knighthood, and courtesy is one of the MUST qualities in a knight. You cannot be a part of chain of command without certain respect and courtesy. 

Charity: A knight of any rank knows that you shall pass everything on to those below, so they can strive to be better - even better than the knight himself. If you are in a position of power, you must share your wisdom and power with those around you.  Charity opens your heart and that of others; it brings true inner peace. One of the cornerstone principles of the first Templar Order was Charity because it kept the knights from falling into greed and bad manners. Knights are obligated to give charity, and contribute from their wisdom to others.

Wisdom: A knight must have the ability to discern, to separate fact from fiction. A knight must not act out of haste through his own misunderstandings or lack of knowledge, nor be party to malicious gossip to justify his version of the truth - such things show a lack of wisdom and dishonour the oath made before God. Wisdom is portrayed though words, actions, attitudes but above all, silence. Knowing when to keep silent is just as important as speaking up. Such wisdom honours the legacy and rule of the Templar. Wisdom comes to those who live by integrity and courage, and who seek both knowledge and truth.
