Masonic Thoughts


Make rest a necessity, not an objective. Only rest long enough
To gather strength.

The soil says, "Don’t bring me your need. Bring me your seed."

You must learn to translate wisdom and strong feelings into labor.

You must get good at one of two things: planting in the spring of begging in the fall.


Humans have the remarkable ability to get exactly what they must have. But there
Is a difference between a "must and a want."

The best motivation is self-motivation. The guy says, " I wish someone would
Come by and turn me on." What if they don’t show up? You’ve got to have a
Better plan for your life.

When you know what you want, and you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way
to get it.

Masonic Bits and Pieces

Seeds of Communication: Ask and Listen

If you attack another person’s beliefs, you are creating an enemy.

Emperors are overthrown. Empowerers are revered.
