Wisdom from the Craft


G“Nature is a revelation and the light of Truth shines everywhere in the world. The want of Faith and the refusal of men to reason make the shadows. Man is blindfolded by himself. All men might be free but ignorance and superstition forge the fetters and men enchain themselves and create their own bondage. If you prefer anything in the world to Reason, Truth and Justice; if logic alarms you and the naked Truth makes you blush; if to assail received errors is to wound you, seek not to become an Adept. You will not comprehend the secrets. To show the light to nocturnal birds is to conceal it from them, since it blinds them and is darker to them than the darkness.”

~ Oliver Day Street (1866 – 1944) Symbolism of the Three Degrees
