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

Apotheosis: Exercise, the Brain and Power

We live in a sick society, one that is suffering from a severe mass amnesia. We have become strangers to ourselves and need to find ourselves. How to acquire the will to do so requires using our inborn energy, our power. The question is: how best to find it to unleash it; to set it free, so that one can move from a state of apathy onto a transcendental state of apotheosis. Power is directed by the brain; specifically by the ventro-medial pre-frontal neo-cortex, where visualization and mimetic representation occurs, and by the hippo-campi, where neuro-genesis and memory retrieval occurs. The brain functions through moving the body. One of the problems encountered with exercise is avoiding the wrong kind of exercise. The wrong kind can damage you by restricting the expression of energy, and there are a great many wrong kinds. Many of the standard stretching routines actually damage the tendons. In addition, certain kinds of exercises are just plain bad for the body. Any treadmill type of exercise is bad. Any stationary exercise is bad. Any repetitive exercise is bad. Why are they so bad? Because they don't stimulate the brain. They are boring. Movement exercise, such as a martial arts form, is good; provided that the form is sufficiently aerobic. Martial exercises are good because doing martial forms requires one to utilize the memory in performance...in performing martial arts forms, one visualizes the applications of the various postures. Today, with so many unemployed, many cannot afford to take classes in martial arts under a qualified instructor; but because of YouTube, many martial forms are freely available for perusal. Find one that appeals to you and practice that. Just as in gaining access to the Internet you will choose the best browser, choose whichever form works best for you. Of course, you would always want to pursue some form that opens up all your joints, in particular your hip and shoulder joints. Why? Because energy washes through the body like ocean waves approaching a beach. If the joints are closed, the energy wave could crash against the tendons in those joints, harming them. Let's go yet a little deeper. Mysteries are so mysterious because of a lack of understanding, and that's why we study and we train: to master them. There are no ancient mysteries, because all the ancient ones were solved and the solutions are readily available if one knows where to look; but there are certainly many present existing mysteries that now need solutions. Speaking of solutions, there is an unfortunate tendency today to try to equate the human and the divine. This tendency is in error: it's wrong. Frankly, such a concept is insane. Divinity, the demonstrated ability for creativity, resides within sentience only; in those beings with the capacity for consciousness...beings like us. The divine is just one part of being human. It's one aspect only, the creative aspect that is God. God is a part of us because we are conscious: the divine is our compassionate, our creative part. Let's discuss that God-part then. Because we are conscious we are divine, since we have within ourselves an innate capacity for creativity; but we are far more than divine---we are human. We have the capability to direct our own evolution through our own creativity...genomic design. We could people the stars. For those who may be interested in mind-experience (say in the so-called paranormal Noe-tic Sciences); in order to achieve any power whatsoever over matter, real psychic training involves utilizing one's heart and lungs as well as one's brain. Sedentary meditative exercises, unless such exercises involve the focused intention of movement when contemplated, whether or not one actually physically moves, are all valueless---useless; and this is why so many millions who practice such exercises have absolutely no powers---they can't cure anyone with their minds, neither themselves or others---they can't actually" see" energy---so, they've wasted their time, and sometimes their entire lives, practicing the wrong methods. Let's be clear here: We are speaking about verifiable cures. That person was ill and now that person is well directly because of your psychic intervention. If you want to have power, you must meditate on movement and change! Now this adage applies to any religion, and to any philosophy. All. If your religion and/or your philosophy doesn't enhance your psychic abilities, go find a religion or a philosophy that does grant you such ability because your old religion and philosophy is frankly a fraud. Don't waste your life on nonsense. Movement and change are the keys to power and not static stillness. Energy is energy, whether the energy be psychic or sexual. The old saying: "In stillness there is strength" is often misinterpreted. What it means is: when confronted, do not fear. Do not be afraid. Do not show any anger or hostility towards them that are challenging you. Do not be intimidated by life and circumstance. Be brave. Be bold. In order not to show fear or anger, one must be calm and cool and be confident in oneself. Confidence requires both strength and skill. Strength and skill come from long training. There are no short cuts in exercise, but the exercise has to be of the right kind in order to achieve power. Otherwise, you're simply wasting your time! In considering any form of training, the predominant question is: Does this stuff work? Do you feel that your energy, your power, is increasing? If what you're trying to achieve is apotheosis, an actual transcendental transformation, you simply can't achieve it by thinking about it or by reading about it---yes, you do actually have to do something about it, and that something is physical; as it's only through the physical that the spiritual can ever be known---you do have to move. You must sweat! Some sort of system such as the "Golden Eagle Set" (as detailed in my two e-books for the Amazon Kindle: Heart-Healing The Chariot Way and The Chariot Way The Dream of Crom) should be practiced daily. Why? Well, research has shown that at least three positive innate hereditary traits are directly related: those of entrepreneurship, intelligence and creativity; but we also know all three rely upon increasing brain function and that comes through your own efforts. The mind needs its nourishment. Although the reading and the studying of esoteric texts can sometimes be helpful in supplying this nourishment, it's only through prolonged daily physical effort that the body and ultimately the mind can be sufficiently stimulated to be transformed. Sitting still won't do it; the correct kind of exercise will. Don't fall into the trap of despondency. Don't despair. Smile. Too many people are critics and not creators and they tend to demean everything, but anger never found anything new. It's important to at least try to find something new that no one else has ever discovered as it makes of life an adventure instead of a trial. Relax. Calm down. So many have allowed their anger to strangle themselves with the hidden rage that's buried inside their own entrails. Not that you ever need to; but if you do, be your own redeemer. Despite all our travail, all we may expect from all our strife is to cause a small ripple upon the still surface of the deep lake of life, but who knows to how far a shore that ripple shall travel? Even the whisper of a small breeze upon the still water might stir a wave. Truth is cloaked in similes and symbols; so that's it for the prose portion of this Blog, the rest is poetry! All that was written and will be written is a plagiarism from Nature. Nothing is ever inevitable; not even death...doubt is good.
