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

Psychic Survivability of the Spirit

Three Eastern methods of psychic survivability are well known: the Abrahamic, wherein the Spirit lives on after the body containing the Spirit dies and the Spirit is judged for any actions performed by the body; and based upon that judgment---the Spirit survives in altered states. The Buddhist, which was derived from Hinduism, whereby the Spirit is born again in repeated cycles after each death of the body into states higher or lower depending upon its actions in its prior state, and is eventually cleansed through the cycles of rebirth to be absorbed and released from all cycles of rebirth. The Taoist, whereby the Spirit lives as long as the body containing the Spirit survives, and the action during life is maintenance of the body's existence as long as might be possible in order to preserve the existence of the body's Spirit. Of course, all these scenarios have endless variations, as there are literally hundreds of sects and offshoots for these methods. The Old European belief tradition, the western tradition, is different in the sense that the Spirit exists to engage in a Quest and the purpose of that Quest is to give birth to the Spirit; so that the individual engaging in the Quest is looked upon as not being born as yet physically and spiritually until the goal of the Quest has been achieved. The Quest obviously is to achieve transformation.
