I shall next present you with three precious jewels, which are a LISTENING EAR, a SILENT TONGUE, and a FAITHFUL HEART.

Page 56 - ... guard should concern woman. But she can develop strength of character and cease supporting man-made Bibles and religions, ridiculous and ignorant in conception. She can study the Book of Nature in all its divine revelations, and she can understand that the symbology of the Masonic apron and the swastika will give her a higher and more noble message of Truth than all the pulpit orators of two thousand centuries. Woman contributes a salary for her own enslavement and has seriously retarded her...
Page 27 - Search yourself Brother", is equivalent to the dismembered Delphic Oracle "Know Thyself".

These have a profound meaning, and Body, Soul and Spirit, are worthy...

It is the duty of woman to cultivate a mentality strong and positive, possessing her own body and intellect, endowed with the ability to recognize where her credulity has led her and the crafty motive of her deceivers.

Church Hierarchies are centers of political power,...
Page 23 - ... scope of knowledge vast and inspiring, expressed in symbology and allegory, no definite explanation of which can be given in detail, in so small a work as this. The number of degrees are superfluous; the Three Blue degrees, with the united Mark Master belonging to the Fellow Craft, and the sublime Royal Arch degree, originally contained all the instruction of the Ancient Mysteries, but they were dismembered of their value about the middle of the 18th century, and the present Order is a system...
