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

Perception and Redemption

One of the many problems with perception is that it is notoriously unreliable, and that's why in all criminal cases, corroboration of facts is necessary by deposition in order to present a case to any grand jury.  No matter how impartial any witness might seem to be, his or her perception will be prejudiced.  Everyone perceives differently, but no one perceives accurately.  There is a genetic basis to perception and that basis causes any perceiver not just to see what is happening, but also to see it very narrowly based upon the observer's past experiences.  The result is every observation has to be verified before it can be taken as the truth.  In other words, any observation has to be confirmed and redeemed by experiment and other observations before it could be accepted generally.  Of course, for the individual, in his or her every day affairs, his or her observation is more than sufficient.  That is the difference between opinion and fact.  Everyone has opinions and those opinions are always especially strong on emotional topics like religion and politics, but they are simply opinions.  They can't be considered to be facts.
