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

Martial Arts Clubs

Bare-Knuckle-Boxing is one among many, many martial arts.  There are over a thousand systems of martial art in the world, and possibly a lot more.  They all have one thing in common and that's the development of power.  Because of YouTube, all these various systems of martial art are available for perusal.  If you live near any large metropolis, there are hundreds of martial arts clubs.  Before joining any club, one should remember that any martial art is a part of a larger culture and the martial art was invented (martial arts like religions are invented---that doesn't mean they aren't useful or not true) so to preserve the culture's membership by its elite group of warriors.  It then behooves one to examine the entire culture in order to determine whether or not one wishes to join any particular martial arts club, as each club shall expect its members to have a deep respect for that culture from which its martial art sprang.  So, if something about some culture does not appeal to you; look for another club.
