The below share is from a Brother named, Justin Grass. He is posting in the local Masonic Facebook Page Northwest Masonic snippets from a book named, “365 Level Steps: Masonic Meditations for Every Day of the Year” These daily postings from Brother Grass are very powerful if you allow them to be so in your life and on your walk as a Mason.
This post can easily go along with my earlier post on Freemasonry and Religion.
In what direction on your path do you walk?
But his delight is in the law of Jehovah;
And on his law doth he meditate day and night.
When we commit ourselves to the path of Freemasonry, we are, in fact, committing to a lifelong journey that will inevitably lead us towards goodness and Godliness.
Whatever the details of our particular belief-system, whatever religious or spiritual path we follow, Freemasonry enhances and decorates our faith. It is a rich and beautiful cloak that we wear over our daily practice to protect and keep it strong. Like a fine coat worn over our best clothes to protect against heavy weather, Freemasonry adds without ever taking away.
And, in putting on that protective cloak, we turn away from behaviours and thoughts that keep us tied to our earth-bound fellows and we turn our face to the long uphill path that leads to Truth and Light and Love.
