Blue - The Philosophical Tenets
Coastal scene of blue sky and sea
 

See that ye are loved. Point thy mind and faculty. See ye the stars, the planets, the oceans, all nature, thy soul.

Know then once and for all, that these, the mighty friends of thine, care for thee and love thee much.

          

 

It is our belief:

  1. That Creation is evolving with purpose, and that human life within Creation is part of that purposeful evolution.
  2. That the human finds itself participant in Creation, and must therefore respect it, and must do what is its part to do in it.
  3. That the human is born into a vast multiplicity of choice and possibility, and that this life is an opportunity of reformation.
  4. That Creation is ordered according to fixed laws which manifest in all aspects at all levels, thus the human is ordered according to these laws; and that these laws are observable and applicable into all things (from the growth of a plant, to human emotion, to the production of electricity).
  5. That all knowledge derives in the first instance from these laws, and has aggregated throughout human history, and the continuing aggregation provides the basis for further development of the human faculty and possibility, and becomes a pressure for further evolution.
  6. That humans inherit the attempts of the past as their foundation, which does not necessarily offer a final set of truths; and that it is the duty of humans to strive to correct that which does not apply or which prevents human progress.
  7. That without the human playing an intelligent part there will be no different future.
  8. That human life has a continuing possibility after death, and is therefore in part spiritual; and that it is the individual responsibility of each human to live life in such a way that allows the spiritual aspect the greatest possibility of development and furtherance.
  9. That arising from this is the responsibility of individuals towards others, to be not denying upon the spiritual aspect of others, for, by the shared fact of being human, to practice spiritual denial upon another is to deny one's own spirituality.
  10. That within the character of human life is an instinctive knowledge of its responsibility as a first principle; and without responsibility choice has no direction against an end purpose.
  11. That each human life is ultimately responsible for the conduct of its own existence.
  12. That each human must progress by and from oneself, and not at the expense of other lives; and that the human must be careful not to go beyond certain allowances of freedom to the cost of others.
  13. That there is the requirement to maintain standards, and to continually refine one's thinking and behaviour patterns in an on-going process of upgrading.
  14. That an individual's behaviour becomes self-fulfilling by repetition, and that the human should therefore be self-determining, in their choice of actions and standards and attitudes, rather than adopting the ways of others without self-foundations.
  15. That to be self-determining to effect requires the ability to make informed selection from the vast choice that is available to the human; and to be selective with knowledge requires that the human has self-awareness and struggles towards reality always, rather than an abstract view that has no actual basis.
  16. That learning and experience is a matter of comparison and measurement; and that the human should endeavour to be constantly increasing its stock for greater accuracy and depth, and for the addition to oneself of self-designated qualities.
  17. That there is a responsibility upon the human to develop their potential in all possible ways to the uttermost, and to seek to use their gifts to the full as a duty; and that it is anti-purpose for any human to be deliberately at less than they can be.
  18. That all things are interdependent, and because of the freedom of choice gifted to the human, life for the human should be contractual; for without agreement, human relationships are based on loose assumption and uncertainty.
  19. That the inward and outward aspects of the human demonstration should have corresponding values; thus, the human should not be deceptive or hypocritical, in that self declaration should be actual and not assumed - (that is, there should be no disparity between one's own self law and one's own demonstration).
  20. That there is a duty upon the human to be creative and not destructive, regenerative and not degenerative, else the human race will not progress and evolve.
  21. That there is a responsibility upon those who can lead to rightly do so.
