The Masonic Influence on World History

Albert Pike; Masonic writer and philoso[pher on proper conduct.

Our impulse is to pursue right conduct, and morality is divinely inspired and originates from Above. This impulse or Inspiration compels us to right conduct and warns us against guilt: right conduct springs out of the nature of things.

Equality For All

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Both sides of the race issue have to realize this.

“Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.” – – Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia – Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War.

Know thyself

a personal spiritual journey about learning Thy Self.

Author unknown

To Know Thy Self be prepared to face down your fear of being taught to know “myself”.

But you have to know “myself” before you could learn about your place in the cosmos and your part in the immutable laws which run it.

To know “myself” you have to think about ‘life, the universe, and everything’.

Quantum Linear Superposition

 

 

The best selling book by Robert Lomas

The Lost Keys of Masonry

A quote from the aforementioned book.

Feeling part of the vast quantum entanglement between all particles of matter throughout the cosmos seems to be a natural development from the idea of an interactive quantum observer. An important consequence of a quantum view of the world is that no reality exists – past, present or future – until it is observed. Physicist Roger Penrose wrote about this strange feature, explaining how it is possible for an object to be in two places at once.

 This strange mathematical consequence is called quantum linear superposition, and, although it may seem an abstract idea, it has a real effect. Experiments show that a quantum object really is in two places at the same time. But that is not the end of the story, as Penrose explains. Quantum linear superposition is quite puzzling enough . . . [but] any physical object, itself made out of individual particles, ought to be able . . . to ‘be in two places at once’. The formalism of quantum mechanics makes no distinction between single particles and complicated systems of many particles. Why, then, do we not experience . . . say, cricket balls, or even people, having two completely different locations at once? This is a profound question, and present-day quantum theory does not really provide us with a satisfying answer.

Lomas, Robert. The Lost Key: The Supranatural Secrets of the Freemasons 

This is often experienced in the physical plane without most of us even realizing it.

Several years ago, I had a friend of mine tell me that acquaintance of his had seen me and a fellow worker had been seen in a place that neither of us could have possibly been.

He even described both of us perfectly., along with the vehicles we were driving, and the clothes we were wearing.

When my friend told me this, I responded in the affirmative that we had been there.  I seemed to have a memory of it. After the initial thought, I realized that we hadn’t been there. But it still, and still does even today, many years later, seems real. 

I believe that in an alternate reality, it was very true, and I will always carry that memory.

More People Live In Fear Than Live In Faith

A Journey For A Greater Understanding of Life.

Here in Florida, we once again survived another hurricane season with a couple of near misses in Florida, especially Irma.

There was a reason for concern, Governor Scott declared the whole state a disaster area before the hurricane was even close to making landfall.

In part, because of the overreaction of the Weather Channel, and CNN, people immediately went on a buying frenzy, buying enough supplies of food and other survival goods to last for months.

While there is nothing wrong with being prepared and cautious, many lost all resemblances of faith, completely freaking out at the possibility of losing everything and even their lives.

This is somewhat natural, as we all want to preserve life and live long and healthy.

But there are limits as to how we should let fear run our lives and many have lost all faith in a Supreme Being and forget there is always a hand watching over us, to protect and guide us through all adversity.

When we remember there is a Divine Intelligence and it guides us if we only listen, and we remember that in all actuality, we never die, the soul lives on, it can relieve the fear and enable us to weather the storm , so to speak, and go on with our lives and take what comes in stride.

Growing Up In Indiana: Entertainment on a Saturday Night

photo fo two people, a child and an adult looking at a sunset over the ocean

Life was a lot slower and simpler in the fifties and sixties.

Times were simple, it was an uncomplicated life back then.

Growing up in the 50s, we were the fortunate ones. Little did we know what lie ahead of those innocent times.Life was hard but good. Money wasn’t an issue, nobody had any.

Our entertainment was simple, we either went to see friends and ate popcorn, or we went shopping in a grocery store with two aisles and stopped at grandmas on the way home. Or we stayed home.

We Have Created Our Reality

 

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Many dispute the fact that we humans create the reality we live in, most just shrug their shoulders and attribute everything that they experience as fate and search no further for answers.

Look around you, look at the current condition of the world, all the violence, the corruption, warfare, discontent, where did that come from? Did it just happen?

The world has always been a pretty cruel place, but it is an awfully beautiful planet as well. There have always been negative events in the world, but in this day and age, things are different. 

People condone bad behavior, it is accepted and no one judges or has an opinion.  This has lead to a general downfall of morals and values, and we have abandoned God.

What have we, as a country been thinking the last sixty years?

We wonder where God is, and how could he let these things happen to a righteous people?

Many look to an outside force for the cure to our ills, but the simple fact is, as a nation, we have become unrighteous., we no longer believe or try to uphold the values that this country was founded on and made us great.

Many discount any reference to people being able to create their reality, they believe it is all up to God.

Things go wrong and they ask,”Where is God?”

God was taken from the equation.

What has our thinking been the last several decades, where have our thoughts been?

Most have forgotten about what is important in life, worrying more about if they can afford the latest smartphone than they are about doing the right thing, or raising their kids in a good environment, teaching them good values and trying to lead them down the correct path in life.

As a nation, our values and ethics have gone down the toilet. If you casually mention how people thought or believed sixty years ago, you are looked at and scorned as if you came from a different planet.

A football player is ridiculed for praying on the field of battle while others are praised for disrespecting the American flag.

The democratic party booed God at their national convention in 2012, and we have kicked him out of the public arena.

Mass shootings are common in this era, all sorts of unnatural behavior is condoned and encouraged, and we wonder what happened.

We created our own reality.
