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

The Five Fires

In Celtic martial systems, emphasis is placed upon five pressure points of the body. These five pressure points consist of four cavities, inside the shoulder joints and the hip joints, and one at the lumbar vertebrae directly opposite the navel. What these cavities do, at shoulders and hips, is to unlock the joints further down the body---the elbows and the knees. It is easy to judge the validity of any martial system by simply watching the adherents of the system. Many renowned practitioners of the martial arts have never actually used any martial technique in close-quarter combat situations, and therefore lack the necessary practical experience of fighting for their own lives and for the lives of others. One of the worse mistakes a practitioner could make is locking the joints of the elbows and knees, as they shall immediately be broken. No joint should ever be locked. Period. Aside from their martial aspects, the energy cannot flow in the body when any joint is locked. It's like a string of lights; by locking a higher joint, energy can't flow to the joints below that joint. So, the cavities at the shoulder and hip joints have to opened (in Celtic martial terminology, their fires must be ignited, must be lit) in order for power to descend throughout the limbs of the body, all four of the limbs. These cavities are like dimples at each of the joints.
