The Fit Foil Foul Fits Fitly.

The seepage of one’s assumptions permeates thoroughly all that one views. How one views "Perfection" is included in this thought’s basin. Freemason’s Rituals are activities intended to reveal paths that show how to Perfect men. How men see this "Perfection" affects all that they shall do. More importantly, it affects all that they shall be.

-----------------

If it hasn’t happen to you already, it’ll happen to you soon enough. At one point in your Fraternal experience, at least one of your Brothers will proclaim, "no one is perfect" while alluding to a very strong belief that "no one will ever be perfect until they have passed beyond this physical realm". Immediately following this proclamation, a physical and verbal showing of support will usually radiate from all who are present.

It’s interesting to view these exchanges. Often times the individuals most animate to affirm this adage are least likely to show any significant signs that they have Worked toward improving themselves. It’s almost as if adages like this one support an unworldly stasis intended to preserve their status quo.

Thanks to coach, I am aware of the importance of the ashlar as an allegory of perfection, and as an instrument to visualize the goal to perfection. Again, thanks for that.

Question: Can a non-Mason have an ashlar to perfect? Or is that strictly for Masons?
Please Note: I am not a Mason. And also, I am not an anti-Mason!

You do not have to be a member of the organization of Free & Accepted Masons to work upon your ashlar.
