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.

Reading between the lines is what we do. It is what draws us to the light moreso when we find ourselves embraced by the fertile mind palaces that have brought speculative freemasonry to the point it is today. As if it needs to be said, evolution of thought did not, can not and will not hesitate. If you enjoy finding ideas, each stone found and put in place takes us one piece closer to completing the puzzle we call life. Doing it without judging yourself or others? To do this, try focusing on only what is most important and let the rest flow out of mind. Yes there are many distractions and others needing to feel complete by imposing their ideas on us. Your parents put you at the starting line. If only I had been born to genius and wealth- I would be complete within myself. Keep telling yourself that until the truth is deafening. Your genius may be buried waiting for you to find it. And remember, genius is isolating. It is insufferable unless it is tempered by a gentle nature. But unrequited until you replace one for the other. What have you to loose by trying? Overcoming challenge is what a curious mind does. You call it doubt. Others call it contemplation. You call it anxiety when the other choice to call it excitement waits for you to discover. Know that what draws your attention and time today will probably lead to other directions tomorrow. Read the work of the brightest minds you can follow. Then savour what you have learned and reflect on the next question. Rousseau, Locke, even Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were ppl with lives. Hindsight elevated them. Whose to say you aren't following a similar path. Let hindsight be the judge.
