The Real Meaning of a Carpenter's
As the world celebrates the birth of Jesus
who came in physical form on planet Earth over 2000 years
ago, it is about time to re-look at the outlook he once gave
his Father while assisting him in the carpenter workshop,
on the real meaning of the tools they used for work.
Jesus told his Father that these tools reminded him of the
ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things were
made of thought and where we built up character.
The Square and Compass
We should use the Square to measure all our
lines, to straighten the crooked places of the way, and make
the corners of our conduct square. The Compass is to be used
to draw circles around our passions and desires to keep them
in the bounds of righteousness.
The Axe, Hammer and Plane
With the Axe we should cut away the knotty,
useless and ungainly parts of our thoughts and physical body,
to make our character and appearance symmetrical. We should
use the hammer to drive home this truth and pound it in until
it becomes a part of our every part. With the Plane we should
smoothen the uneven surfaces of joint and block and board
that go to build the temple for the truth. Likewise, we should
use the Chisel, the Line, the Plummet, and the Saw in the
workshop of the Mind to fine-tune our thoughts and cut off
the negative aspects to understand the reality of our existence
on Earth and who we really are, and the extent of our unlimited
The Ladder with its trinity of steps: Faith,
Hope and Love should be used to climb to the dome of purity
in life, and to ascend higher and higher until we reach the
pinnacle of that which life is spent to build - 'The Temple
of Perfected Man'.
I sincerely hope you will find the true use
of these tools of a Carpenter by understanding the real meaning
behind the teachings of Jesus. He was simply showing us how
to build the Temple of Perfected Man by using these tools
to perfect our very own 'Human Body'. He made this absolutely
clear with many other 'Parables', like, The Human Body is
the Temple of God, The Kingdom of God is within you, Seek
and you will find it, And then the Truth will set you Free.
If you are indeed ready to find the truth and become free,
there is no better time than Now, not tomorrow or day after,
or next Christmas.
Now means 'Right Now'
And what better way to begin by using these
tools and making your 'Body', that is, your Health - your
first priority in all the things that you do every day.
All the best for 'Now' - the only eternal
