Greetings from the East!

The discovery of self is a profound journey that transcends time and circumstance. It is an introspective odyssey where one unravels the layers of their identity, aspirations, and values. This expedition often involves the complexities of emotions, confronting fears, and embracing personal truths. It is not a destination but a continuous process of learning, growth, and acceptance.

Warmer weather is ahead of us and what a better time it will be to put our working tools to great use. To shape that rough Ashlar everyday with every endeavor we accept in front of us. 1%-5% a day is all it takes to make the slightest change go the longest distance.

The word March can be derived from the Latin word Martius (named after Mars, the Roman god of war.) Just a reminder that we all fight different battles unknown to each other throughout life. And sometimes just an attentive ear is all we really need to receive the right wisdom.

It requires introspection, mindfulness, and a willingness to explore one’s thoughts and experiences. Along the way, individuals may find hidden strengths, passions, and a deeper connection with their authentic selves. This journey empowers people to make conscious choices aligned with their genuine desires, fostering a sense of purpose and fulfillment.

And Brethren I will leave you with this…

“There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.” –Brother Benjamin Franklin
