The Checkered Floor

Continuing with the shades of grey metaphor is the checkered floor of Solomon's temple, which is another metaphor to describe the floor or base consciousness of people who appeal to authority to be told what is right & wrong, instead of figuring it out for themselves. If you have not discovered the overarching governing principle that dictates what your rights are & what your wrongs are, then you'll be second guessing every step you take across the checkered board. You'll think that one action is right & your next action is wrong & back & forth as you go along. People relinquish their autonomy & ownership of self when they have to rely on the church or the state to tell them what is right & wrong instead of learning it for themselves. This is masonic symbolism I learned from
