Worshipful Master's Message March 2017

“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you”. - Thomas Jefferson

“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you”. - Thomas Jefferson

Each year with equal regularity, the month of March ushers in the Spring season.  In many cultures the Spring season symbolizes rebirth, new beginnings, expansion and growth.  One such cultural philosophy or practice is known as "Feng Shui", which is an ancient Chinese practice meant to harmonize an individual to his physical surroundings to create a peaceful metaphysical environment.

As we observe nature in all it's wonder, we can see how important it is that a healthy environment is necessary for growth and prosperity.  For example if we plant seeds in healthy soil with careful nurturing, our plants will grow wholesome and robust.  If we plant our seeds in soil which is dry, unfit and filled with weeds the plants may never sprout or die quickly.

Each living organism deals with the same mortal fate.  We all find that time offers no escape to our erosion.  This is why it is important to contemplate our own mental and physical environments. Unlike plants we have the ability to choose who we are around, how we think, where we will go and how we will spend our time.  Ask yourself are you aware of your surroundings and how you truly work?  What kind of soil do you plant your seeds in?

Sincerely & Fraternally
