Description

Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, poverty, are battle-fields, which have their heroes,—heroes obscure, but sometimes greater than those who become illustrious. It is said by some, with a nearer approach to interpretation, that the point within the circle represents God in the centre of the Universe.

The perfect Ashlar is said to be a stone made ready by the hands of the workmen, to be adjusted by the working-tools of the Fellow-Craft. For further instruction as to the symbolism of the heavenly bodies, and of the sacred numbers, and of the temple and its details, you must wait patiently until you advance in Masonry, in the mean time exercising your intellect in studying them for yourself. And in the old Lectures, our ancient English Brethren said, The Blazing Star or Glory in the centre refers us to that grand luminary, the Sun, which enlightens the earth, and by its genial influence dispenses blessings to mankind.The obligation of the candidate is always to be taken on the sacred book or books of his religion, that he may deem it more solemn and binding; and therefore it was that you were asked of what religion you were. It has rightly been said: "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" [Matthew 6:21]; our treasure is where the beehives of our knowledge are. You have already heard what these Lights, the greater and lesser, are said to be, and how they are spoken of by our Brethren of the York Rite. There are immense Forces in the great caverns of evil beneath society; in the hideous degradation, squalor, wretchedness and destitution, vices and crimes that reek and simmer in the darkness in that populace below the people, of great cities.

It probably meant Active and Vivifying Energy and Force; and Boas, Stability, Permanence, in the passive sense. He produces foreknown and foreintended effects, by the instrumentality of the forces of nature, all of which are His forces. Yet the effects produced, when our hand, moved by our will, launches a pebble into the ocean, never cease; and every uttered word is registered for eternity upon the invisible air. This allows us to see that the demands of religion and piety are ultimately internal to human nature itself and an important part of the flourishing of human beings understood as rational, political animals. The people that would be Free and Independent, must possess Sagacity, Forethought, Foresight, and careful Circumspection, all which are included in the meaning of the word Prudence.

That Force must be limited, restrained, conveyed by distribution into different channels, and by roundabout courses, to outlets, whence it is to issue as the law, action, and decision of the State; as the wise old Egyptian kings conveyed in different canals, by sub-division, the swelling waters of the Nile, and compelled them to fertilize and not devastate the land.

In the Temple of Eleusis (a sanctuary lighted only by a window in the roof, and representing the Universe), the images of the Sun, Moon, and Mercury, were represented. It is customary, in Lodges of the York Rite, to see a celestial globe on one, and a terrestrial globe on the other; but these are not warranted, if the object be to imitate the original two columns of the Temple.

Omnipotent power, infinite, and existing alone, would necessarily not be constrained to consistency. To reconcile the moral law, human responsibility, free-will, with the absolute power of God; and the existence of evil with His absolute wisdom, and goodness, and mercy,—these are the great enigmas of the Sphynx. And it is true that a Brotherly affection and kindness should govern us in all our intercourse and relations with our brethren; and a generous and liberal philanthropy actuate us in regard to all men. The lectures provided a backdrop for the degrees by giving lessons in comparative religion, history, and philosophy.It is the Master of this Lodge, of the Universe, Hermes, of whom Khu-ru-m is the representative, that is one of the lights of the Lodge. A copy of Morals and Dogma was given to new members of the Southern Jurisdiction from the early 1900s until the mid-1970s.
