Principles become revealed to the world through our behaviour. Helpful characteristics are not secrets. Nor are they mysteries. They are lessons requiring an open mind an awareness of ourselves in relation to others. While stodgy old men wanted us to believe it sucked the fun out of life, the point of true masonry is just the opposite. It is an acquired, private way of thinking. Is private a secret? I doubt it.

Perception is reality? If I accept that I accept a duality exists about the Craft. Whose perception matters? Is it important, those outside the door have a favourable opinion of those within? Encouraging unrestrained opportunity is about as sensible as suppressing the natural rights of mankind. That seems to be a proof that perception can, in the looseness of some minds, at some moments of distraction- can be made a reality. You are right to point out that perception varies. It always has always will. And I can't disagree with you. But when the hoi polloi wanted Socrates dead, fact/reality was ignored. The perception that changed 7 years later and made his accusers and judges place statutes around the city to honour him couldn't save his life. The trial of Socrates has taught us about a vulnerability that is part of humankind. Is the Gentle Craft actually claiming immunity to judgment by perception? For certain, becoming a true mason blends talent, ability, curiousity and a desire to understand. It is a rich palette of ideas made available to the discerning member to do with as he chooses. Perhaps attendance is not metaphysical. The advances of science are too complicated and best left for others. Perhaps class stratification is what the masonic wind leaves behind in the mind. Some bits fall short. No one has ever died because he lacked imagination but many have died for lack of water! But in our search for authenticity and meaning, some people are afraid of us. Did we occur by evolution or were we created?

Geometry is at the core of masonry. So one would have to be crazy to dismiss the architecture of our community. Do we define community as personal as a man who looks only at this footsteps as he returns each day from his labours? Do... more

Masonry calls it light. Philosophers call it the essential. Call it what you will- those who can surrender their innocence for optimism. Those who cannot associate with those who can, drawn by an undefinable gravity. Regardless of motive or ability,... more
