Call in to speak with the host
One path is self absorption. Another option followed by a sliver of mankind is a departure. The masonic opportunity of fraternity is a tapestry incomplete.
Whether you find yourself in our secular environment, or a more strident religious/ theocractic atmosphere, the presence of the masonic estate, there are such a continuum of meaning, diversification produced by assumptions and drift.
For a moment, set aside your preconceptions and join me to look at the order broadly and personally.
Use of the internet has generated new words that have sifted into everyday conversation. Similarly, I wonder if masonry grows organically or what technology now calls viral or what observers call a social phenomena. Or is that a distorted picture of a philosophy with a cadre of men wondering if their sense of the order is superficial.
How would we know if we achieved a philosophical rightness? If we achieved that end, what of our preoccupation with management ?
Regardless of structure, regardless of leadership, the core beliefs of freemasonry are deeply rooted the fabric of meaning, the thought of oracles, the nature of mankind.
It's good to talk.
