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

Ren Taijiquan

To be good at anything, one has to be persistent, has to persevere and has to have patience.  There is an enormous difference between being merely talented and greatly creative, and that difference is very apparent.  Talent requires constant and continuous performance.  Ability must used; it has to be exercised, in order for creativity to occur.  So, patience is necessary.  But, above all, one has to remain alive.  One is not going to remain alive unless one exercises daily---that's every single day.  Although it's true that daily exercise is necessary to maintain health, the fact is that the majority of exercises are actually damaging to the joints, tendons and ligaments.  Aside from the Celtic Golden Eagle Set, the best form of exercise I've found is that of the Ren Taijiquan.  Ren has developed two forms so far:  the Compact Cannon Fist Form from "The Fountain" film and the Twenty-One "Black Jack" Form.  The principal problem with all the other forms from all the other systems of Tai Chi is they are simply far too slow to convey any aerobic benefits whatsoever as they are insufficiently dynamic.  Also, they are lacking in combat effectiveness.  That's a serious defect, as any form of exercise has to have a martial intent and a strong aerobic component in order to be of some benefit to one's body.  If you want to remain both alert and active, I highly recommend the Ren Tai Chi.  It works!
