Understanding is essential to survival. Freemasons are expected to demonstrate their understanding by conducting themselves with humility that comes from insight. Not superior but dedicated to an inclusive way of living. Whether one has the discipline to achieve is known in hindsight. We could be members of any number of organizations but it has distinct features. Dedication is never supposed to be for everyone. Freemasonry is what it is,applicable to those who are open to it. Just like many other callings. We hope we can be honest, as much with ourselves as with others. We want to be the reliable neighbour you can call upon when in need. If you believe that one can find beauty and joy in spite of challenges in life then we have that in common. Masonic Companion

Be careful what you wish for. It is a journey like no other. This is freemasonry. Just as it shows you the joy, the answers, the feelings of connecting- the discovery along this journey takes the traveller to a place where he realizes insight is not completely burnished. The love expressed within freemasonry is unconditional but not without examining the world as it is; the feelings of abandonment, lonliness in the crowd. deceit, and deception. We wander into darkness itself. One version- my version has a talisman that leads out of the blackness and draws back to the lightness of life itself. Conflict, and pettiness, no longer hold power. As the vessel empties it fills. It just might come true.
