W.L. Wilmhurst, in his work "Masonic Initiation", provides us with some additional insights into the Letter G, all for which he says are "allusions". He raises three points, which we may use or throw away depending on our level perceptions and needs. These allusions include the following: "(i) the Glory of God, or glory in the centre ; (2) Grandeur, or the greatness of perfection to which man may become raised by initiation into union .with God at his centre ; (3) Gom-El, a Hebrew word of praise for the Divine power and goodness in designing that perfection and that union between the Creator and the creature."
The importance, or exaltation of the Letter G, should not be underestimated. Says Wimhurst, "When the Lodge is opened, the mind and heart of every Brother composing it should be deemed as also being opened to the "G" and all that it implies, to the intent that those implications may eventually become realized facts of experience. When the Lodge is closed, the memory of the "G" symbol and its implications should be the chief one to be retained and pondered over in the repository of the heart."
However, for the purpose of this article, and to provide you with an inner insight into this Letter, we shall focus on one key theme of the Letter G, and it is that of "unity" and "perfection".
