This is the sum of duty:
“Do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done unto you.”
“Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.”
“Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto you.”
“Regard your neighbor’s gain as your gain and your neighbor’s loss as your loss.”
“What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man. That is the entire law, all else is commentary”
“No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.”
“Do unto others, as you would have others do unto you.”
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every Mason in the World understood and lived up to the principles stated above, and by their actions, shone a light out into the World a message of Love, Peace & Understanding. This may be just a dream, but little of value has ever occurred without a dream. God Bless.
What a person believes has everything to do with what a person is and becomes. A simple statement of belief can describe so well such a person and even a whole history of ideas. I hope that this creed may have some special meaning to you.
