The Religion of Action Jan. 11th, 2005 @ 01:31 am

I was in many fine conversations today. But of all my meditations, all my points, I think what came forth the strongest was a theme of commitment to service and action, as an actual full "religious" path- for me, selfless service is "religion" in the strongest and truest sense of the word. When you live for others, you really live. And self-donation to the good of others is a meta-religion- it is a path that any and all can follow; it is not limited to any dogmatic tradition. It's something essential about our humanity.

New Order Announcement Jan. 9th, 2005 @ 09:27 pm

Women have full participation and membership in this order. The original announcement used the term "honorary membership" for women- but this needs to be changed.

The order was founded by men, aimed specifically at the issues facing men and their relationship to the Feminine, both spiritually, as well as in the secular world- but this Order is not just for men.

The title "Brother Knight" or "Knight" is held by men in the order, and "Cup Bearer" is held by women; but we want to make it very clear that "Cup Bearer" is the title for a Female Knight in our organization.

Here is the new Announcement, that we will use:

Brothers and Sisters Militant Jan. 9th, 2005 @ 08:30 pm

» A Story from Ancient China


I think that this story, from the Confucian tradition, sums up beautifully the amazing power of selfless service. If this story was understood at the deepest level by all people alive, this world would become a paradise greater than any vision of Heaven.
