    Grip of a Master Mason:


    In the Master Mason ritual, the candidate is raise from a tomb (Raising of the Master) using this grip (lion's paw), and a symbolic resurrection occurs. (After the grips of the previous two grades had proven unsuccessful.)

    This is the connection I saw between the hand of the white robed Shepherd and resting on the Et in Arcadia Ego tomb of Poussin's, as mentioned by D on his site.

    (Nice one, HT!)

    thank you hayward.. I was aware of the regulus grip and it does apply.. but I think there's more

    I was unaware of the word anagoge.. but since Duncan has shed light on it, I think that's what applies here.. and I think intuitively he sees it too.. I'm hoping to flesh it out with him and others

    btw.. I once took an uninvited tour of a lodge.. someone had left the front door ajar.. I gave a "hello hello" several times, but no answer.. I grabbed some brochures and went straight to the second floor.. i saw an actual lion's paw mounted in a small frame.. I saw the altar.. what was fascinating was how the third floor access was set up.. there were winding stairs from the ground floor.. I could see the door to the third floor up the stairwell.. but prior to that.. half way up the stairs, between the second and third floor, they actually framed a door right there on the stairs.. I did not try this door as I felt I had transgressed far enough.. and so I left

    Lions are well suited protectors of Wisdom

    1 Kings 3:5 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you."

    thinking out loud again... how do two L-ions know each other?

    hand to hand (V to V).. forming that which they protect..

    I was pretty sure you were aware of it, just wanted to give the visual more 'air time'.

    Three fingers exposed, leaving two on either side to grip the other. The total of the two's two fingers gives us four. The two threes give us Six and total we have ten. We can't get eight until we put all out hands together.

    As in "Spiritual reading?"

    Are you referring to your statement of being "surrounded by two thieves"?

    The spiritual reading I see is a spiritual resurrection from within where we are now. Is it the case that you see something perhaps more, or other, than that?

    The English interpretation of his name would be claw.

    Yet, the truth of the tower of Babel (and where we must depart from our physical journey) is that the ediface stands, erected as our personality, the false sense of self we build out of words or appearances, & out of the misinterpreted causes behind the effects which enter into our life experiences. It will crumble and be decimated (x 10) by the lightning flash should we allow mercy to perform its duty.

    I believe that could be it.. remember, I am just a foole trying to understand why and how of the way the Wind blows..

    I see this world as a combination of these pictures (concepts)..



    removing one's self from the below (from between the two thieves) and rising to the above is I believe the resurrection of which you speak.. and it certainly seems to be the picture that alchemy paints

    the mounds represent the rock of..
    "upon this rock I will build my church"

    this is where free will comes in
