    Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it. - Psalm 127

    Illumination dissolves all material ties and binds men together with the golden chains of spiritual
    understanding; it acknowledges only the leadership of the Christ; it has no ritual or rule but the
    divine, impersonal, universal love, no other worship than the inner Flame that is ever lit at the shrine
    of Spirit.This union is the free state of spiritual brotherhood. The only restraint is the discipline of
    Soul; therefore, we know liberty without license; we are a united universe without physical limits, a
    divine service to God without ceremony or creed. The illumined walk without fear - by Grace.
