Masonic Thoughts


The first duty which an Entered Apprentice acknowledges is to improve himself in Masonry, yet how many do truly and sincerely attempt to discharge that duty. What would be the success of a lawyer who would never again look into the law books after his admission into the bar; a minister of the gospel who never read the Bible after ordination; a doctor who never took up medical work after securing his sheepskin; or a member of any other graduate studies?
And yet one finds Freemasons on every hand, pretending to be Masonic lights, who never read! Some of them, perhaps, can repeat glibly certain portions of the ritual, but could not give an intelligent interpretation of the same to save their lives. Masonic reading is an essential part of the education of every Freemason. It is never too late to begin, but always better to begin early..

Seeds of Motivation: Winning from Within

Motivation is an inner force that compels behavior. Your inner drives will propel you further and faster than external perks. It’s not the experience of today that causes us the most stress, it’s the regret for something we didn’t do yesterday. Motivation is motive in action. The most important opinion you’ll ever have is the one you hold of yourself..
