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 Necessity for Choice

What one is is what one is and since one is always changing; what one is, is changing too.  Everyone changes.  Change can be directed towards a destiny and that's what religion is all about---choosing the destiny and choosing the methodology for change needed to accomplish that destiny.  Any religion or philosophy that does not allow choice isn't really a religion or a philosophy---it's simply slavery.  Of course, one can choose to be a slave and so many do.  Being a slave means that someone else is choosing one's destiny and one's manner of changing.  In the case of most religions, that someone else is long dead or perhaps never even existed.  If one adheres to such a belief system, one is not only a slave---one is also stupid.  Stupidity inhibits change, and all those who can't change are already dead: Suicide of the Soul.  For only the dead cannot change.
