WAY OF THE SEVEN STARS


Response To That Final Question:

Ignorance is the Bane of Man.
At a distance removed,
Dimly remembered, and
Still not seen distinct,
But yet somehow felt;
What we do sense
Is not reality; is not the Real Thing.
This World is hologram.
Then; for lucid sleep;
For it's just a dream
Within another dream
And we are not awake.

Seven Stars' Song of Revelation

Ignorance is a jail where no escape
Is possible but through knowledge.
Don't fear nor spurn. Dare to learn:

Assent to and accept this world as it is
Before attempting ascent to any world
Aspired to or wished for. Life's glorious!

That That Is can be known but by few.
Not space, not time, not gravity exists;
But as Extension from Field of Thought.

Be subject to neither church nor crown.

Dread naught. Disdain none: Not One!
Absent That That Is, there's Nothing.

That That Is, IS. That That's Not, IS, too.
That That's Not makes That That Is: IS.
That That Is makes That That's Not BE.

By rowing to That That Is, I become "I."
Wind + Water = Wave. As THOUGHT is
The Heart and The Nave of The Wheel.

Worlds are created from Thought alone.
That which we will do is because of that
What we are. We'll become who we are.

Charity, courtesy, civility, compassion,
Are cardinal spokes making civilization;
Chivalry forms center, hub's circle core.

IS is! Be not the slave of some other's I.
This, Creed of our Seven Stars Society;
This, The Teaching of the Seven Stars:

No man can be happy if he should choose
To be exile from his own nature and soul.
ALL IS THOUGHT ILLUMINATING BEING

Combat Strategy

Unless you're a Druid, you are not going to be able to harm or to heal someone at a distance---so in this post, I'm assuming you are not...my apologies to the few that are. Close quarters combat requires actually touching someone to inflict an injury; whether done with a projectile, a weapon, or with one's limbs. In Celtic systems, almost all strikes are delivered with forearms and with shins, usually simultaneously, by a high strike to the head accompanied by a low strike to the knee...the high strike with a forearm and the low strike with the shin. Fists and feet are used to strike, but usually against soft tissue at various pressure points to paralyze the opponent. For instance, there are several pressure points right above the elbow that when struck will cause the opponent to lose control of his arm. These same pressure points also exist right above the knee and when struck will cause lost of feeling in the entire leg limb so that the opponent will collapse. In both cases, elbow and knee, these pressure points are in the center of the joint, the right side of the joint and at left side of the joint. Pressure points are found by experimenting, by pressing your thumb in, at various locations. When found, they'll produce a shock and a limb goes numb.
