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

The Direction of History

Unlike the driven historical tradition of humanity's redemptive progress through a messianic intervention, as it's defined in Judeo-Christian-Islamic belief systems, Druid tradition has no such directive force, whether it be positive or negative. History can't have direction because there is nothing at all that is directing it. There is no Force except that of Change. Humanity evolves mainly through sexual selection; so humanity is the product of that selection and those who do choose mates don't do so with history in mind, but desire. What does change is the nature of desire.  What is considered desirable in a mate or a spouse does, in fact, change.  Without desire, there are no children and it's those children who will eventually make history.  Human history is driven by sexual desire. Change desire and human history changes. All media deal with desire, and that desire is sexual in nature.  Advertisements deal with enhancing maleness and femaleness.  Buy this and you shall be a better, more attractive, person.  You shall be more desirable.  The same is true of politics and religion.  Belonging to the correct political party and faith makes one more desirable.  To take but one current example, this is the real reason behind the absurd climate controversy.  Which side of the climate debate (does man-made emissions affect the climate adversely or not) some person is on, affects their individual desirability to potential mates.  This rule, of being on the right side of anything to enhance sexual desirability, is true of all political and religious controversies. Adolescents' peer conformity in their social beliefs, in their teen fashions, and in their expressed opinions is an excellent example of this assertion (to adults they'll appear autistic so that they'll gain favor within their peer groups).  People take sides in debates because desirability calls for them taking sides. Even a person not physically desirable, from an objective anatomical viewpoint, might become desirable if he or she takes the side in any debate that's considered to be the more culturally acceptable one.  The men and women who are on the winning sides of these debates make history.  Desire drives history.  And since desire is so very often intoxicating, men and women being drunk with desire; this inebriation is reflected in history's errant direction.  History stumbles.  History has no direction.  It falls down.  If we pause to look in order to give a dry accounting of the ages, from the dimness of prehistory until the blighted blind present, no direction or intervention is to be found; only bonfires lit by a courageous few to mark the Way.
