*The first official use of the all seeing eye dates back to 1797 when the Masons adopted the symbol as a seal. "And although our thoughts, words and actions, may be hidden from the eyes of man, yet that All-Seeing Eye, whom the Sun, Moon and Stars obey, and under whose watchful care even comets perform their stupendous revolutions, pervades the inmost recesses of the human heart, and will reward us according to our merits." ~ Thomas Smith Webb. The all seeing eye of God is a reminder that a Mason’s thoughts and deeds are always observed by God.
