I've been a student of Jewish lore for an eternity - or it seems.
To wit wiki:
Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — "surface" ("straight") or the literal (direct) meaning. Remez (רֶמֶז) — "hints" or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense. Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: "inquire" ("seek") — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences. Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in 'sore') — "secret" ("mystery") or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.
Is this what we are talking about? As I understand it, Freemasonry is organized on spiritual principles that cohere to midrashic exegetical ideology? It seems strange that this relationship isn't more publically acknowledged because it is so accurate.
I mentioned elsewhere that music is my religion... So another son(g) for those who might not understand..

omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

foriamhim: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
