(SOURCE: Midnight Freemasons - James E Frey, 32°) - My Brethren, one of
the most mysterious symbols within our society is the mythical All Seeing Eye
we receive in the third degree of the Ancient Craft. This symbol in ritual is
mentioned as
“the All seeing
eye whom the
sun, moon,
and stars
obey, and
under whose
watchful care
comets
perform their
stupendous
revolutions,
beholds the inmost recesses of the human heart, and will reward us
according to our works.” In ritual this reminds us of the obligation we owe to
God, not in any religious context, but to the universality of God and mankind.
As Masons the eye has had many meanings throughout our long rich history.
But the true understanding and deeper meaning is a revelation of the
meaning of the Master Mason’s degree.
Albert Mackey writes that the All Seeing Eye is “An important symbol of the
Supreme Being, borrowed by the Freemasons from the nations of antiquity.”
The All Seeing Eye is a symbol representing the watchful gaze of God. It
reminds us that every thought and action is to be recorded by the Grand
Architect of the Universe, and that we are bound to our obligations in spirit as
well as in blood.

Then said God to Moses. that if I were to withdraw my providence from the heavens and the earth. like as the cup fell from thy hand. rather than God itself. This is because the eye was adopted into Masonry in 1797 in Thomas Webb’s Official Freemason’s Monitor. New ways of perceiving God and man is what led humanity out of the dark ages and bring forth the Rosicrucian and enlightenment movements. O Lord dost thou sleep or not? The Lord said unto Moses. that notices everything that happens in the world. In a hermetic view the eye dwells in the heavens gazing over the sun. This I believe is why the Masons adopted it for this reason.As Masons we are to act upon the square of virtue and keep our passions in due bounds. the eternal gaze of God is beautifully allegorized. In Hinduism divine providence is associated with the God Shiva. But yet it can see into the inward recesses of the human heart. For instance Buddha is regularly referred to as the “Eye of the World”. who has an all seeing third eye on his forehead. for longer a space of time than thou hast slept. The Masons during the enlightenment era referred to this as the Eye of Providence. But the All Seeing Eye is found throughout history in a variety cultures and societies. This reminds us of the important hermetic lesson of ‘as above so below’ this shows that the earth and the heavens are a reflection of each other and connected through the nature of God. rebirth and immortality. The Masons of . The All Seeing Eye is more representative of the will of God. which represents God’s gaze over humanity. and the cup fell from his hand. but Mackey points to the Apocryphal Book of Conversation with Moses on Mount Sinai. and by my glory. and the water which was therein spilled then Moses awoke from his sleep. “Then Moses said to the Lord. I never sleep: but take a cup and fill it with water.” This verse is pointed too because I feel it correlates one of the most important meanings to this symbol. that is what we swore to uphold on our honor as a man and a mason. and moon. so he slept. as the Lord commanded him. The third eye is also associated with the forehead chakra in eastern meditation teachings. They saw it as a symbol to represent unity of religious denominations in this new era of enlightenment which ended the dark ages and gave birth to modern democracy. they would at once fall to ruin and confusion. But within Masonry the All Seeing Eye borrows its myth from Hebrew theology. The Watchfulness of God is demonstrated in verses throughout the Old Testament. I declare by my power. the Eye often with the addition of an enclosing triangle was an explicit image of the Christian Trinity. In Medieval and Renaissance European iconography. Then Moses took a cup and filled it with water. This is the general exoteric explanation for this symbol in modern masonry. Then the Lord cast into the heart of Moses the breath of slumber. has an authority over death.

” To understand the role of Egypt in .  Each symbol is an enigma to be solved.  People have overlooked the truth that the symbols of antiquity were not used to reveal but to conceal. “It is in its antique symbols and their occult meaning that the true secrets of Freemasonry consist. It is believed the first reference in Masonic literature to that of Egypt is from the Cooke Manuscript which reads.  Illustrious Brother Albert Pike. 33 a masonic scholar and philosopher taught that the adepts of the order concealed of the true meaning of the symbols of the craft. to end the darkness of exploitation and the revival of the ancient ideals of the republic. would still have known that the former were but preparatory. This is why I believe the Speculative Masons incorporated the All Seeing Eye as an emblem. because they believed they were a working tool for the will of God. How can the intelligent Mason fail to see that the blue degrees are but preparatory.” Great thinkers within masonry pondered the teaching and mythology of the craft and began to discover deep esoteric wisdom that stretched back to ancient Egypt.  But these have no value if we see nothing in the symbols of the blue lodge beyond the imbecile pretenses of interpretations of them contained in our monitors. Some early masonic writers even declare Egypt was the origins of the craft as well. They believed Masonry was a tool for social change and social justice. and that there must be some place in which their symbols were explained and their real purposes made known. to enlist and band together the rank and file Masonic army for purposes undisclosed to them. “During the time that the children of Israel dwelt in Egypt they learned the craft of Masonry… And from thence this worthy science was brought into France and into many other regions. As Masonry progressed. and not a lesson to be read.  Yet the true meaning of the symbols and teachings may yet be discovered through the study and reflection of the student. its focus on political philosophy  faded into the esoteric studies that were believed to be hidden from the ordinary brethren.bring forth the Rosicrucian and enlightenment movements. This is why within Masonry the All Seeing Eye is always mentioned to be of Egyptian origins. Pike writes. that they are the lesser mysteries in which the symbols are used to conceal the truth? Every man of high intelligence initiated of the lesser mysteries but ignorant of the greater.
