I feel the dew and blades of grass,
Beneath bare feet, it's time at last,
A token's whispered "You may pass",
As a tower at low twelve tolls.

The moon sits high, a shadow's cast,
Beneath the Tree of Life has passed,
This Seeker whose found the Path at last,
That's been lost to so many souls.

Engulfed in Light of Seekers past,
No more are eerie shadows cast,
Enlightenment has come at last,
As a tower at low twelve tolls.

Missing Light

Solar Eclipse.jpg

Where is the sunlight? Where is the Source?

Where is the Love at? While it runs its course?

 

In the name of the Father, And the words of his Scribes,

So many are murdered, So many have died.

 

But what is the Purpose? Its reason for being?

No good has resulted, Are they not Seeing?

 

It’s really so simple. We just need to Love.

Stop fighting and killing, Over who sits Above.

 

Your end will soon come. Your days will be over.

Your body will wither, And then become clover.

 

So take caution Today, As actions you choose.

They’ll one day decide. If We win or We lose.

The Entered Apprentice- The Masonic Fool: A Reflection

By: Jason E. Marshall

(The Fool card in the Tarot represents unlimited potential, youth, and enthusiasm, yet it is bound in a raw and unrefined state, which is also the classical representation of the Entered Apprentice in Masonic symbolism.)

Each Mason begins his journey as a Fool.

As a candidate we are a Fool that is full of energy, enthusiasm, and a desire to start our Masonic journey, yet we lack knowledge, experience, and direction.

Unhindered by fear, we reach the door of the preparation room full of unlimited potential, promise and hope.  Our true potential is locked within us, carefully wrapped up within the baggage of our psyche, but in short order it shall be revealed. But first, as a Fool, we must take an unknown step into the abyss; however, our faith being in God, our faith is well-founded, so over the ledge we must go.

Upon our entrance into the Lodge, we blindly traverse the checkered pavement, which is fitting because prior to that moment we have blindly resided in the world, ignorant of the duality of the world and the duality within ourselves. With each step what had previously been mere potential begins to manifest into reality.

After our oath on the solemn book, we receive the first rays of Masonic Light, which sheds light upon the great and timeless mysteries that had previously been unexplored, or simply overlooked.

Bound by the mystic tie we receive the working tools of an Entered Apprentice, the 24 inch gauge and common gavel, and with these tools we begin to labor and continue our travels.

Through our labors what had been mere potential as an Apprentice will continue to manifest itself throughout the building of that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens, and the future tools will guide us and our Fellow Fools, in our lifelong journeys towards that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns.

And when at last as weary Masters we lay down the working tools of life, may our well-lived life and our bonds of brotherly love and affection build a well-crafted pathway for the Fools that follow in our footsteps.
