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

Third Tenet: Necessity for Contingency

The third tenet (we only have three tenets) of the Old Belief is in the Necessity for Contingency. As we've stated, the whole thrust of the Old Belief is in the development and wise usage of the psychic potential that we possess. This involves the intention of creating consciousness in the sense of waking from a dormant state into an aware state. We are asleep. We must awake. So we have a goal and we have many methods for achieving that goal. But all those many methods presuppose the necessity for contingency. What this means is: that everything we do or that we don't do is contingent upon the state of the entire universe. We don't act alone. The universe acts with us. Think of two mirrors facing each other. Whatever is shown in one mirror will be reflected in the other. It is as if the mirrors were one mirror, but a mirror of separate sections. Multiply the mirrors to infinity and that it is how the universe works; everything being shown on one (us) is contingent upon what is being reflected in everything else. So, what we do or don't do reflects everywhere. All our actions are multiplied elsewhere; so are all our in-actions. What we do or we don't do has multiple consequences. It has results. We are affecting the universe and the universe affects us. Not only are we affecting the universe, we're creating its consciousness.
