Neither Barefoot Nor Shod

 

Screenshot_629In the first degree perhaps one reason we are neither barefoot nor shod is because in approaching the divine and esoteric secrets of freemasonry we are seeking to obtain knowledge which is beyond mere words, a gnosis of the divine, by means which are limited.

The symbols of freemasonry are like the shoe which represents a means of conveyance, something which clothes something more. By removing one shoe we also attempt to approach the Holy ground these symbols point to. As such the symbols of freemasonry are mere landmarks, signposts, labels or monikers which are intended to lead to truths that are beyond the ability of finite man to convey. With this truth in mind I pray that the words and symbols used in this essay will also lead you to a realization of truths beyond these words.
