There are those whose 'custom' is to disagree with you. They search for a degree in the immeasurable soul. It would come off a test to many, but woman would beg to differ. She would call it love. Her Father would have it no other way. She is precious and you are man, albeit mortal. He can offer her up to only what measures he can put forth... thereafter the immeasurable portion is your great work(s).
From this spring jealousy. Many who Fail live with it.
Those who conquer live with her. She is made for love. The masonic weights (how much pressure can you handle) and measures (how far are you willing to go) are a somewhat profound custom. It relates to the creator of these tools, aka Tubal-Cain.
He had a sister named 'Naamah'. In Spanish her name is pronounced 'No Ama' which translates as '[He] does not love.' It's ironic in that it speaks of her brother who loves no man, for none, in his eyes and love for his sister, are found Worthy of her. It then speaks of the suitor who does not love her as he is faint of heart at the conclusion of each trial cast at his feet. He would to have her... But does not expressively do so during the trials. He is weak and phobic. Thus he does not love her and hence does not deserve her. Tubal Cain in Spanish is pronounced 'Tuvo Sueño'. In English it means '[He] had a dream.' This dream is more than God and souls can muster. Hence man must do it. His dream is to fulfill his sister's naive mind with the truth of a worthy suitor. Plus I hear the sex is great.
The Masons have at there core such moralities and such exacting principles and disciplines that correct a mortal that he may become better or even perfect. But weights and measures are this tradition. Not the costumes and silly charities. In the true world... The tools are exemplary. For example... A 'Sash' is what many call the 'wound that never heals' or so called a cowan (coward). In the better sense of it... If but you could rise above the fear(s) it is then a seal and merit of the Noble heart. Thus when you wear it... It covers your heart/chest centre with the colors of such. Many choose the colors. But it's true colors are green and red. Red is frustration and green is aggravation or jealousy. It now invokes men. And this bravery, albeit a woman as prize, it too comes with the Hateful conceit of the slackers. It's a noble curse. At this Regalia we pride in our women, but humble ourselves before the lesser men. The main tool is that of the maul. A powerful blow to the ego and body. This is called maul, which is short for molested. The heart, not knowing it's a test, or if death is certain... Faces it and endures it and conquers it. Those who call it a powerful deed are seldom at the truth. But the maul is such that it can bruise or heal the ego. No ego is necessary. But to tubal Cain it is a godsend. Many are the tools and so too the Trestle (aka Trust All). This plan has won him his dream. To have a brother. As did Cain who despised Abel for his favor with God. So too is Tubal Cain with his brother who beat the system and became naamahs true love. He did ruthlessly, for life is such. And she is a daughter of his father's. Plus I hear sex is great.
To consider the whole story is cool. But the 0° to 33° degree is no f'in joke. Build on the tools and trust in them. But forget the part where, if you're in it, those degrees are solely your own experience. They're very hurtful and may seem cruel, but they serve a purpose. And you won't know it until you see your son or daughter born in unto the word you created with those tools and also the lives you have created with procreation. Be thou a good man and stay away from Pinocchio, the liar. For he will tell thee a great lie.
