AN AFFIRMATIVE OUTLOOK
It is true that we adopt a popular idea and later find disappointment because it does not "hold water."
"Look at the bright side of everything," are words which have resulted in the opposite of the intended objective.
Faith must carry with it the elements of knowledge and perception. There must be a foundation.
At some point in our thinking we use Faith to span the unknown, but understanding must carry us to an analogy between the Seen and the Unseen.
To take an affirmative attitude toward the ultimate solution of all problems is different from the casual "looking at the bright side of everything."
To study, to contemplate, to see all sides, but to retain a hopeful viewpoint is the soundest philosophy.
Masonry teaches such a philosophy. The candidate is directed to two paths, and by the very nature of symbolism is given the opportunity to choose. He is also given the best thought of the ages.
Let us have an Affirmative Outlook based upon study, understanding and Faith.
