I have been in the rock and mineral business for my entire adult life, but only recently have I gotten into actual stonework. This summer I have taken the plunge into operative masonry. Granted, I do use power tools more than gavels and chisels… but the thought process is still the same at its roots. With this new perspective, I have begun to reflect on freemasonry in a different fashion. As i continue to learn and grow in my career and my mundane life, so too do i grow in my spiritual and inner life.

With these new thoughts, I have also found more strength of character and confidence in my role as a freemason. In the 7 years I have been in the craft I have continued to advance and take on new responsibilities… and have learned how to access different aspects of myself. Most recently i have begun to play roller derby, something I would have never thought that I would have the sportiness and discipline to actually follow through with. I feel certain that the lessons i have inculcated from freemasonry have given me the tools to not only tap into this different aspect of myself, but to do so in a way that is healthy and balanced. 

I hope to continue to apply the principles of the 24 inch gauge to all aspects of my life. For many years I devoted most of my “free” time to masonic pursuits, which has been great, but at the expense of many of my other interests. When I started this tumblr, I had the intention of posting items that were symbolic and meaningful to freemasons and other occult practices…. trying to bridge the gap to to speak. The purpose was always for this to be primarily a symbolism blog… But I found that over the past 3 1/3 years, i often gave into outside pressure to make the main focus freemasonry only. 

Going forward, I am going to try to go back to my original intentions, that of posting both masonic items and other items that may not seem related to freemasonry on the outside. My hope is with deeper contemplation, and applying the mental filter of what one learns in freemasonry to these other bits of esoterica, that a greater understanding of the spiritual world around us can be reached. 

Finally, I would like to thank all of my followers and everyone that I have had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with over the years. I hope to continue to learn and grow from the many interactions this tumblr has facilitated. 

Light and Love!

so i gained 15 new followers before i promoted my other tumblr and then immediately lost 16 followers after I promoted it… LOL (good riddance, i say) 
however… I am happy to report that my other tumblr gained 21 new followers. (Hi LHPers! I am glad to know some of you exist!)

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God is His wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.

Just found out that my friend’s grandparents were members of occult societies; her grandfather a Freemason and her grandmother is a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.

She should have told me this 3 years ago when we first met and were going on dates!

Since when the Order of the Eastern Star is considered an occult society?
