Summary

In this illustrated volume, an expert in arcane symbolism traces Masonic history from Ancient Egypt to the twentieth century through more than one hundred symbols. 
 
The Freemasons have profoundly altered the course of history. Their belief in liberty and equality influenced both the French and American Revolutions, as evidenced in part by the symbols on our currency. In The Arcana of Freemasonry, first published in 1915, Albert Churchward weaves a tale of Masonry’s origins in ancient Egypt and its continuance through history—all told via Masonic symbols and symbolism. 
 
From Egyptian history and Mayan relief work through Greek mathematicians, philosophers, and metaphysicians, Churchward traces the development of the most basic symbols of Freemasonry. He also reveals the hidden symbolism found in the signs and tools of modern Freemasonry and helps readers find hidden meanings in all areas of life from art and architecture to geometry and poetry.

    Would you walk away from a game of checkers after being jumped one time? Of course not. You still have eighteen pieces left and plenty of opportunities to win. But as adults we lose sight of the life’s entire board. Once we mess up, we think the game is over. Winning the Moment is a guide to living the life you want and becoming the person you want to be.  In engaging, can’t-put-it-down storytelling, Cody Adent shows how much life has to offer when you change your mindset and focus. As a species, we have preconditioned believes about all facets of life that we never take the time to question. Everyone is in different spectrums of their lives and we don't take enough time to define for ourselves what a win looks like; instead, we take the easy way and let other people define it for us. Therein lies the problem — expectation is the root of disappointment. Life is a gift of many successes but much of our day-to-day lives is a subconscious reflection of our views on winning and losing. Unfortunately, some people develop an unhealthy “win at any cost” relationship with winning. Eternally optimistic and infectiously stubborn, Cody Adent shares lessons from a meteoric career trajectory to inspire motivation and tools to make a pivot in life that brings you closer to living the life you desire.  There are ten times during the day when all of us can make better decisions and appreciate things, you forget how good it feels to be the person you want to be. In Winning the Moment, we learn that winning the moment is about creating a path to enjoy a fulfilling life. Too many people spend too much time searching for what they “should” be doing, versus what they “want” to do. You own it. Make it what you want. Cody isn’t going to tell you what they are. You know the best decisions at the best times. When you don’t take the time to appreciate things, you forget how good it feels to be the person you want to be. In  Winning the Moment, we learn that winning the moment is about creating a path to enjoy a fulfilling life. Too many people spend too much time searching for what they “should” be doing, versus what they “want” to do. You own it. Make it what you want.
