    A man learns for himself or he doesn't.  At an early age we teach our children the basic forms of literacy. Reading and writing are important tools to function as an adult.  As a child grows capability becomes known to us by behaviour.  Personality and intelligence is defined.  The child is influenced by the atmospheres experienced, intended and otherwise.  Need and opportunity influence what a person does. Experience can shape the way a person connects with the world around. When does the mind leave behind the frivolity of youth is unclear. For some, it is early. For others, it is a gradual process. 

    The principles and philosophy of freemasonry can not be imposed on anyone. It is when the mentoring occurs, that a more cultured mind becomes accessible to the apprentice.  The history of freemasonry let's us know there are expectations of a manner to one another and to others; acts of philanthropy and 'charity'; to not brag or assume propriety; to be generous of spirit, quick to forgive, willing to entertain the dissenting opinion, easy in his manner.

    Poking at a man with ideas has probably done more to discourage learning than any other function.

    Freed from religious intolerance, neither dilettante nor subservient, we travel around the globe, making a life on the next shore, exchanging ideas from somewhere else with those new to us. Seeming enlightened though few would make such a claim, mouthing philosophies which remain aspirational, we are Freemasonry. 

    Our Order preserves the Ancient Charges while desiring to give each entered apprentice the opportunity to learn in an artist's studio, a scholar's library, an alchemical laboratory.   

    We will be amazed by the success of that endeavour that has withstood the test of time/history.

    It is all with us, as it has been for generations.  Freemasonry does change as history changes. But it is always Freemasonry. It is always history.

    Dialogue on Freemasonry

    in Christianity

    Can a Christian be a Mason? What are the differences between Freemasonry and Christianity? Is it true that they are in direct conflict with one another?

    Walter Martin and former high-ranking Mason Luther Mies discuss the rituals and roots of Masonry--deeply embedded in the world of the Occult--on Night Watch.

    Freemasonry and the Illuminati

    in Spirituality

    Aired on Walking Among Spirits - The new book by Scott E. Hensler - Second Heaven Invasion - chapter 13 - Freemasonry and the Illuminati - Are you under this curse? Find out what is really going on in the spirit world that allows this secret society to operate even today!

    Tantalizing though it is to have secrets,  those of a freemason are as evident as the colour of his eyes or the measure of his gait.  Patterns of behaviour hidden in view tell the careful watcher much more about the man than what is said.

    What drives men to exclude women from this organization?  Perhaps it would be anti-climatic to tell you it is by design  not to exclude but to categorize. It is oak beside maple.  Why is one different?  How much does it matter?  They are trees with a beauty and character we ascribe. So be kind when you think of freemasonry. It is not perfect and neither are the men who join. Today  practitioners of the Masonic Arts & Sciences struggle to understand their obscure provenance and wonder if aspiring to the principles are as altruistic as claimed.

    Tune in as we talk about how the discovery of Utopia is a moment in time, a harsh mistress who extracts at toll for favours.

    Most people have a belief they are complete, the full package. Strengths, shortcomings all intractible. It would be difficult to improve if the form was so rigid. The complete belief denies the fact a human being is adaptive and likes habit. In that sense life is a process influenced as much by our attitudes as by the events and circumstance we face each day. Can most freemasons see their personal goals that will take them to the objective of insight and self improvement?   Human beings are in an unassailable state of change.  We are looking for 'the bigger man' and seeking to be the 'bigger man'. 

    Behaviour of a freemason toward his brethren, family, co-workers, G-d and country reveals his state of mind. A mason is given an opportunity to hone some useful skills of observation. But to understand them, he first must discover them.  Just as he discovered how to balance his bicycle and enjoy the ride, freemasonry requires a desire to learn and action and a goal; what can you do once you have the skill.   

    Is freemasonry about having a membership card, wearing regalia and performing ritual? If it is, then we will have stripped freemasonry of unique history, an enriched philosophy and a philathropic ethos.

    Can a man find an ethical 'right life' through freemasonry?  With commitment, dedication, opportunity and sincere mentoring  he may always be in a state of incompletion but closing in on his goals.

    How we are known to others, should matter.  So learn the meaning of hubris; what the arts can express about the human condition; how a balanced life is different and why a statisfactory life does not come from a recipe.

    'A life unexamined is not worth living.'

    Yes, insight matters.  Yes theocracy is despotic. Yes, plutocracy is ruinous. Yes, democracy is messy. The 'freedoms' of a secular culture come at a price.  Yes, life is fragile and fleeting. Yes Freemasons are audacious. Yes, the greater good matters.

    Personal development has never been the perview of a lodge.  Admittedly Lodges contain vast knowledge. Whether a member has a thirst for this is known only to him. How deeply he drinks,is public.  A thread of concern over the centuries,  has been from a mind that define poor scholarship as a personal failing, a result of us collectively lowered standards.  Why, only right minded people we allowed to ask their single question of the Delphi  Oracle, weren't they? 

    Within the Order certain narratives have been drawn out while others are ignored.  Let's then examine one of those other narratives to see if it agrees or challenges the assumption that our failing is poor selection.  Being an Entered Apprentice  never was a guarantee a man will work as a Master Mason. That requires a good mentor dedicated, curious apprentice, effort and one in every 100,000 we find one genius, the Michelangelowho who draws life itself from stone.

    I'm thinking selection came under fire for noble reasons- perhaps the poor student is lively company who attends even bored by education. Maybe he is masonically illiterate who doesn't connect his thoughts with the experience. Maybe he wasn't taught. The question for us is not the question for him. His question to the Oracle can be simple minded. Nevertheless the answer is for him to sort out.  It is said the Oracle gave obscure answers.  And her aides hustled you out of the grotto and brought in the next.

    If we raise about the fray to look at all aspects, freemasonry cannot be other than what it is.  What can be done to improve?  Plenty!  Rather than a process of conviviality, lodges could convey the true philosophical message of purpose of the Craft. But oh my goodness- that would come from within not without.
