How to Start

[​IMG]

A Brother Asks:
Coach, if I were to investigate the Master's Word, what questions would you suggest I ask myself to start the ball rolling?

Coach: I suggest you start with the particulars of "The Master's Word".

Brother: The particulars?

Coach: Yes. They're provided to everyone right there within the third degree ritual.

Brother: They are?

Coach: Yes, hidden in plain sight they are.

Brother: Good. Then it should give me some very helpful clues.

Coach: Indeed. Everything has been put there for you to figure it out.

Brother: It has?

Coach: Yes. But only when you have done the preparatory Work. When you have you should be able to discern quite nicely both the clues and to what they allude.

Brother: Nice! So what should I ask first?

Brother: Why him?

Coach: Because he tells you those reasons every time he is asked, especially by the Worshipful Master.

Brother: Thanks. I may have to listen to ritual more closely next time.

Coach: You'd do well to do this.

Brother: Wait... doesn't he let the Worshipful Master know this right in the beginning?

Coach: He sure does.

Brother: Okay. I know the answer.


Empowerment

Coach: Good! So, let's say they get what they want. What does it allow them to do?
