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

Mental Training with Castles

Martial arts training is clearly the very best methodology for physical longevity, as it's intention is the development of power. What about mental training? Well, any strategic board game shall help develop the mind. The best one that I know of is the game of "Castles" that I played as a child. It's kind of like chess and go only it's a lot more sophisticated in that it's three dimensional. I tried to find the game on the Internet, but there doesn't seem to be any reference to it as it's so obscure. Anyway, you'll find a brief description of the game, with simplified rules for children, in a book: Heart-Healing The Chariot Way on Kindle and on MobiPocket for download. The adult version of this game is yet far more complicated, but its children's version is complex enough for most people. Like all games, it is intended to train its players in the values of its culture: Celtic, in the game of Castles to be sure; but more than that---Druid. Castles is a very high level game.
