Templum Sion Primer on the EA Degree2
Masonry offers to those capable to appreciate it a working philosophy and a practical ruleof life. It discloses to us the scheme of the universe. It indicates our place, our purpose,and our destiny in that universe.Let us be careful not to cheapen the Order by failing to realize its meaning and byadmitting to understand its import.Look to find in it a living philosophy, a vital guide upon these matters, which of all othersis the most sacred and the most urgent to our ultimate well-being.Realize that its secrets and mysteries, which are many and invaluable, are not upon thesurface; that they are not those of the tongue, but of the heart.For whoever is carefully and deliberately "squaring his stone" is fitting himself for hisplace in the "intended structure."Anonymous
