I started contemplating on Gems decoding the mummy.
Understanding the masonic conception of Gems is easy. They are a curse.
Why. Because they are made out of lots of little boxes.
So Gems are basically all a curse. Play the colour game with them also.
Diamonds. Cursed Purity.
Emeralds. Cursed Thought.
So Gems are cursed spirit, cursed light hexed down onto the material plane with their hexagonal structures.
When you get this…kapow…instant initiation into infinity of spirit.
That’s how much a Mason has to care. Matter is mostly a curse. And everything from day 1 to End. Is about spirit.
