Curiosity killed the cat!
When we are children, the world is a literal place. Things are as they appear. The human brain continues to develop. We have language before we have speech. Babies have a sense of morality. Some infants show a capacity to share and care for others. Some on the other hand, show competition. Today we know the brain continues to shed and produce cells. If it is damaged we know it can 'rewire'. We know concussion hurts the brain and causes us to loose functions and shorten our lives. We see pictures of the brain with dementia but we don't know why it has plaques and tangles, just that it does. The brain coordinates all the functions of a human being. What of the mind? Is it artistic? Is it smart? Does it have insight? Does it have good memory? What of personality? Sanguine? Phlegmatic? Melancholic? Choleric? What limits your progress? Are you sure you know your own potential? Likely not!
We call it occult or esoteric but what we mean is 'knowledge of the hidden' . MC walks into the laboratory curious about truths are hidden in here. This place calls on us to use our minds in a way that is beyond the reason we use every day. It is believing the unbelieveable. We once mocked those who believe he could turn lead into gold. Today, particle accelerators make nuclear transmutation possible. Using atomic weights (tin= 50 + copper=29) = 79. The atomic weight of gold=79. You do the math! The only people still laughing may never understand. We're used to that. We're masons.
Anyone who thinks masonry is uniform values, would be erasing thousands of years of history. Who can tell what motivates change and progress or even if there is a trigger? Our very presence suggests objective assessment. What could be a greater threat to status quo created by any degree of manipulation than the man who is known for balance. Careful observers can distinguish the difference between culture and politics; loyality and ignorance. Choosing to avoid serious study of a religion sparks controvery on all sides and obscures the truth. The mason separates faith- the truth- from its irrasible cousin, religion. Distillation- the tool of the alchemy- shows the presence of faith in the mixture of religious practice, a presence beyond the limits of the mind- the being not create but supreme. Fundamentalism and zealotry can be incendary, so we need to handle those elements properly and avoid explosions. Why conflict? Why rudeness? Somewhere in our minds we have a scale. If we have been 'wronged' it justifies the release of offensive activity to balance the scoreboard. How in the world did winning infect our reasoning? Why then are masons expected to be reflective and how do we come to that state of mindfulness? If we admit there is an alchemist inside each mason, then we reveal each member is a seeker of knowledge and truths.
Today, MC remembers the men and women who fought the 1st World War. However we do it, we must agree those lives were given up for a noble purpose. If we must lie to do that- what does it say about the progress of humanity. R.I.P.

Sooner or later it was bound to happen. The gewgaws and gimcracks no more. Block a stream of water, the energy and power continue to build. The effect comes to us as consequences; intended or not; up or down stream. And the time it takes to reckon this is time invested to replace ill-conceived ideas and the attend to the self serving mindset of the masses. It is a very lonely experience when you stand against the mainstream.
Scholarship is that blocked stream, not of water but of consciousness; dormant for so long it had fallen out of memory only to be rediscovered. Will the alchemists step forward to teach us the steps in a preparation. Alchemical masons are the most misunderstood of all. And well should they go quietly about their work to avoid ridicule. This collective rediscovery of masonic archives makes for compelling reading. It would take great licence with the facts to claim it was entirely accurate, but it does contain more than partial truths.
If the good man has a better conscience then he has command over the universe with day slips into night. Neither hero or King or pauper or sinner. He retrieves dreams of his own making.
When did freemasonry come away from the metaphysical? Has she failed us in some way, that we no longer worship a lunar existence. Do we disguise the truth of the tarrot by allowing it to be mocked by fools? Do we dismiss the mathematics to predict by remaining illiterate? And what of the presence of past lives? Has the masonic barque faced one too many storms to ly waterlogged at safe harbour? No adventure of the mind is worth starting unless you can commit to finish.
Ideas of honour, dignity, common good have been part of human structures from the stone age. Does the antedeluvian in you think it reasonable that mankind came to exist with awareness of self or might we think that consciousness has been an anatomical adaptation?
We can't say definitively of course when 'freemasonry' came into existence. We know ideas of the Rennaisance and Age of Enlightenment were out there before the reform in Britain and Europe. It tells us the ideas of freemasonry existed with or without a Grand Lodge, within a philosophical context. An antient might marvel at the extrivia that has accumulated along the way; the constitutions, warrants, definedauthority, standards and even a dress code that needed to be said. As sparse as they often are, a contempoary Lodge room would seem cluttered to a man who attended a make-do tavern room but not one who met in a gentlemens residence. Standards and expectations were inevitable and became the source of many of today's practices.
This should tell us that freemasonry is a process of aspiring for insight. There is an expectation we apply philosophy and science to benefit mankind. This story line makes 'today' a snapshot in a time line; one without beginning or end- that streaks through life accumulating knowledge to assimilate and pass forward to the apprentice. Even now, mentors are amongst us connecting, cajoling and critiqueing.
When a foundation shifts, it does not mean the entire structure should be scrapped. It sets our artificers to fix the problem. Until that moment, they lie in wait as the ultimate insurance against failure. How to rebalance the Gentle Craft against the consequence of bureacracy is a question worthy of our best minds. Sit with me while we talk this over.
Raconteur, poet, journalist, lawyer, soldier, teacher; Albert Pike was a man of many facetes. His work before the Supreme Court argued the treaty rights of American First Nations and faced down racism, genocide and raw political power with a conviction in the word of law and appearance of justice. He was a man of his times. When Dr Albert McKey was desparate for help writing the ritual for Scottish Rite, he turned to Col Pike, whose work has been tough for readers to digest because it requires exceptional dissection.
If you have been thus disappointed, our labour has been in vain
Whether these degrees have for you a real value depends upon your capacity to understand them
And upon the amount of study and the degree of reflection you have bestowed upon them
He brings a call for those committed to preserving the landmarks, who have embraced as their own the attitudes of the Antient Charges. No one can be compelled to change, yet as Pike reminds us, we take to the grave what we have learned. If we do not share that learning, it is then lost. We should be aware that the deeper lessons, the knowledge of freemasonry is at risk if we who are starving for knowledge do not willingly commit to our apprenticeship. No barrier is enough to make us fail. But move forward we will with respect as Antients sharing the feast.
With less than a week before Thanksgiving, what better time is there to have some turkey talk? In this episode, however, we're not discussing turkeys in the way you might be thinking. We're talking about turkeys as pets. Most people wouldn't consider the possibility of having this majestic fowl as a pet companion--but we challenge everyone to view them from a different perspective. Join hosts J and D as we talk about pros and cons of becoming a turkey pet parent. Saturday, November, 22nd at 5pm on The Missy Show.

I remember distinctly, as I heard her praying to God, I thought if I looked up I would see Him sitting next to her on her worn couch. This was not just her God, but also her best friend. Her dearest companion who had seen her through a lifetime of suffering and prejudice. As her intimate conversation continued, I grew afraid, because I knew when she finished, I was expected to share with her a message about Jesus, but I knew that she really "knew" him, while I may only know about him. I wanted that kind of intimacy she shared with her Creator, but for me God was distant and demanding.
This simple experience didn't square with what I had been taught. Here was a non-Mormon who knew God in a way I could only imagine. It opened the door for me to begin a conscious and careful re-examination of my faith. In other equally important moments, Christians shared with me how Jesus Christ has changed their lives, healed their marriages, and delivered them from drug addictions. I could have argued how to interpret a particular New Testament verse for hours, but I could never argue with them about how the Lord had touched and transformed their lives. Thirdly, Christians took the time to point out verses in the Bible that seemed to clearly contradict Mormon teaching.
For example, Mormons believe in the existence of many gods in the universe, the god of this world being one among many. But the Word of God clearly proclaims there are no gods but the God revealed in Divine Revelation, He is the first and the last (Isa 44:6, 24; 45:5, 18). I heard the scriptural maneuverings that fellow Mormons used to deny the meaning of these verses, but for me they were clearly confirming monotheism.
Nursing Homes are the great unknown. They are a part of the health care continuum that everyone wants to avoid and no one wants to talk about. The stigma of Nursing Homes is the main reason why families, caregivers and patients neglect to make importent level of care an importnat part of their extended care plan. Join us on The Fischer Report as we talk about Nursing Homes and how to get great care from them.
