Principles become revealed to the world through our behaviour. Helpful characteristics are not secrets. Nor are they mysteries. They are lessons requiring an open mind an awareness of ourselves in relation to others. While stodgy old men wanted us to believe it sucked the fun out of life, the point of true masonry is just the opposite. It is an acquired, private way of thinking. Is private a secret? I doubt it.

Is a man's performance always the best measure of his ability? Or isn't it accurate to notice most people underestimate their true ability? So often experience of early childhood set in motion the development of self reinforcing perceptions that limit the exercise of capacity. Until. Until a man or woman realizes for multiple reasons they have been carrying an impression of themself that has held them back, the truth and the perception are at odds. Who am I to presume anything about another person. Yet it is interesting to explore the idea that Masonry is a process that overcomes irrational thinking by acknowledging it and enriching a pathway to thinking that reveals an audacious world of unfamiliar notions, striving, full of self-affirmations, directed at exploring how far a person can go, when they stop being their own judge and jury. No one starts out knowing but we do start out understanding. And in the course of intellectual history, we have watershed periods following the trials and tribulations of ideas, many of which we take for granted today. Once, we used shadows to measure time. Today I wear a wrist watch. If you asked me what is time, I know but I do not understand. We are what we do. A Brotherhood, striding forward, courageous enough to ask questions that focus the mind.
