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.

This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the weighty presence of the Dabar Yahweh (Word of The Lord). The Dabar Yahweh stands over the socio-political entities constructed by man. The nabi Amos was asked to leave the northern kingdom because his word paralyzed its self-serving hubris.
Your omnipotent host tasks the right for their intransigent belief that climate change is NOT a problem by pandering to the most ignorant of citizens using the same model that has propelled the NRA to unprecedented heights of hubris as relates to the long-term life of mankind...steadfast refusal to accept anything but what they demand, period. Your always beloved and eternally sexy host will also look at the world of "kid "coaching" and the men who take on this daunting task of teaching sports to those still in single digits...a little like herding cats. Plus other topics of national, internatiponal, and in even more case, absolutely no relevance to anyone but sevsdeadserious.
This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the mabbul (flood) of the Genesis document. The so-called flood is more than a cautionary tale or a clever myth. Many cultures all over the ancent world had a flood epic. We do well to carefully investigate the Genesis narrative.

Masonically all ritual, metaphor, symbolism and metaphysics reveals answers to questions: is there purpose in the universe and do I have a role? We think that not asking such questions is a sign of ignorance. We assume the universe can be understood. In between we live in a grey soup; our research incomplete. Writers like WBr Andrew Hammer tell us the priority, unobstructed, is the Craft. Impatience distracts us from our questions. Our instruction of apprentices describing functions, drops off without defining philosophy. What benefit can a disinterested man receive being urged to do more group functions with no mention of metaphysics? We want to believe we have the power to passively rehabilitate a man against the natural course of his life. Isn't that our own conceit. Do we really want to believe morality can be measured by membership and performance?
"Thought would destroy their paradise. No more. Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise". Thomas Gray- 1792
Neither privilege, rank or wealth is a measure of insight. Motivation as hubris; fear of failure; guilt seems at odds with an enriched philosophical environment. Freemasonry expects a man to fulfill his commitments and to be aware of the needs of others. This is magical thinking. Quieting ones ego is very difficult.
Masonic Companion continues to use expositional and critical references to explore the basics.
This episode of Pneumatikos will explore why an individual must guard his or her heart in a world that is filled with images that are designed to seduce, and corrupt the heart into betrayal of its most important intimate relationship.
Normally, we don't think of ourselves in philosophical terms. Nor do we tend to use history as reference points. The sciences and arts, bastardized by generations of feeble educational aspirations have reached fruition. The experiment of democracy has shown major flaws, polarizing haves and have-nots. It isn't social development that we talk about in the cafes but the price of doing so. In Rome expressions of hubris was a criminal act. Today, intoxicated by acquisition, men brag of success in an unbalanced market place. Time, disguised as history, extracts the consequences of our conceits. History is a natural judge. Always harsh. No appeal process. We would be wrong the think tolerance of hurbris will be unpunished. No one lies for us. Each one of us does that for ourselves.
We have much to learn from great cultures. To date, there have been only two- Greece and Rome. In a world split between those who know learning means suvival and those who treat learning as a burden the western world repeats what has not been learned; mistakes of the past haunt the lost generations.
What will turn this tide are men, receptive to thinking; men who study to control their desire; men who will be presecuted for harbouring beliefs of common purpose.
Ask yourself if the old school principles, boarding school rules of conduct and passive encouragement of learning are the tools of change? Do you see brethren hungry to be a successful apprentices capable of stepping into the shoes of great thinkers?
If not the first and second estate, who has a chance that is not despotic of improving the world. Ethics are different when your child is starving.
Now ask the question. Does freemasonry have purpose in the 21st Century? Obviously.
I think we should talk, don't you?
This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the importance of an appropriate attitude in life. There is necessary pain, and there is unnecessary pain that we suffer in life due to an inappropriate attitude. Discover how to develop a winning attitude on this show. As always our expert guess is the living oracles of the Word of God.
This episode of Pneumatikos explores the cost of judging others. Those who insist on judging others assume a role that is outside of their normative role as "neighbor." Beneath the facade of judging others is an intrinsic hostility. We are commanded to love others not to pass sentence.
