    EXCLUSIVE TO THE RIGHT OF US

    in Lifestyle

    A few days ago I was talking a women I know about our children returning from university for the summer. Our daughter is finishing her thesis but I thought it polite to ask if her son had found a summer job. Oh, she said, he's working for the (town unnamed) Golf and Country Club. It's VERY exclusive.  Imagine that; very exclusive.


    I realized I'm not polite- because my first impulse was to think she must be pulling my leg. But her expression revealed she was completely, competitively serious.   Graham you wouldn't think that way if you were a member! Wrong oh wrong. That shite was edcuated out of me when I was a boy; when I had the opportunity to be well schooled. Did you know, some people feel a deep need to display their wealth?  The germans called it schadenfreude- pleasure derived from other persons discomfort. I know we have to dumb it down quite a bit to grasp this process.  The ethos of the capitalist experiment of exploitation is one of ambition and goal directed accumulation of wealth. Modern work is not without criticism but it can be said, before the industrial revolution life was dire for more of us. Having a reliable source of drinking water and food is better than dying. Yet millions are dying while a fewe live lavish lifestyles. I'm not saying wealth isn't without purpose but it's out of control. Bragging about the exclusivity of life and displaying wealth is just tasteless.  There was a time in ancient Rome when hurbis- arrogance, self-importance, egotism-  was outlawed.  The world wide occupy movement voicing concerns about the gap between haves and have nots is today showing us what comes when we tolerate it. It might be an odd version of meritocracy but exclusive? If freemasonry was exclusive would it be of philosophy and ideas or wealth?

    4 Star General Ann Dunwoody Retired: A Conversation

    in Politics

    Ann Dunwoody became the U.S. Army’s first female four-star general. She commanded over 69,000 people and an annual budget of $60 billion. She was in charge of the the army’s total global supply chain. Her new book, “A Higher Standard”, talks about her years of service, her pride for the army, and her principles for leadership. She is a delightful person and this is a friendly conversation but she identifies serious problems in military procurement. She expresses the United States has a serious and growing national security problem because of our inadequate industrial base. She is also concerned about the waste in procurement and tracking army purchases. She had to step over command to bring modern tracking systems to the military. One of the first projects to tackle was the “iron mountain” – the term for 40,000 shipping containers in Iraq that the military didn’t even know what was inside. General Dunwoody also talks about the ethics crisis in the military where hubris and entitlement attitudes are affecting military integrity. She also talks about how the military could save money if Congress was less erratic, how one-year of public service for all eighteen to twenty-eight year old Americans would serve them well and serve the nation well, and how undeclared wars are difficult for our democracy and our military.The Tim Danahey Show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. The show does not espouse a political agenda. Danahey’s strength is to take complex subjects, talk with experts and make them comprehensible and entertaining for average listeners.

    MASONRY IN THE PHENOMENOLOGICAL SENSE

    in Lifestyle

    Does any organization bear its soul for the world?  It does if it's Freemasonry. We are a pious bunch. "Piety" doesn't wear well anymore.  We watch politicians jump ship, knowing the idealists have already jumped ahead of them. We barely tolerate  manipulation of power, hubris and greed.  We give men the resources to be free thinkers and present them with opportunity to rise above the clamour to find the bigger man


    Forever we've recreated the external world in masonic values. We never stopped doing that; always hopeful using insight and reason to release potential.  We've waited, generation after generation; stiff jawed protectors of 'the way" combating the bunk, junk and lizards.


    Before the villagers rally and hunt us down here at Masonic Home Companion we really must talk. Are you noticing the glimmer of light too?     


    Each discovery, discussion and insight prepares the canvas on which we portray our lives. Today, when we build the cathedral, with pencil, protractor  and ruler nearby, we work not in two dimension but three and even computer assisted. The WWW isn't not a new tool but it is renewed every time we use it. It brings the greatest libraries of the world to us.   When we didn't have access, we went about our business perhaps less informed. But today we live a stones throw from the Tate Modern the  Louve and the Hermitage and visit all in an afternoon. It is a testiment to the Craft to flow so much material to our students and reseachers. The geni is out of the bottle. Limits of imagination do not exist. The zeitgeist is about the fluid exchange of ideas.  This exposes little of the practice of freemasonry which remains as shared experiences by small groups of men,  a process of the intellect- achievement of awareness.

    The Spirit Of God Creates Mighty Ones (Formidable Persons) Whose Fruit Remains

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos explores the power of the Spirit to create mighty ones who constantly look at the things that are of eternal value.  The mighty ones know that this age is being caused to pass away by God.  They are done with the hubris and shameless arrogance of the cosmic ones.  The Spirit of God is doing a new thing that is marvelous and is beyond human description. The Spirit is creating the ekklesia (church) in the midst of a generation that is in desperate need of love and hope.  Anxiety and depression are now serious public health realities, but where are the answers to this alarming crisis?

    All Lives Matter Including White Ones As Well - 646 716 7259

    in Current Events

    I have only two more nights before I leave BTR (unless I can achieve a agreement with them ) Tonight's 4 hr topic is race realtions. I believe racism can not be fought with racism. Let us learn from one another.  No system that I know of is perfect for people are falliable. Do you have a position on race ? Call in and be able to support your position if need be. All calls are taken 646 716 7259 . I will mute if you overtalk others . I will do my best to see that you are at least heard. Whether people agree with you is a different matter .


    I like Langston's Hughs poem " A Dream Deferred "


    What happens to a dream deferred?


    Does it dry up
    like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore--
    And then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over--
    like a syrupy sweet?


    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.


    Or does it explode?


    From Montage of a dream deferred .


     


    You are encourage to read passages of your own or others that are related to tonight's topic of race relations for educational purposes only.


    Bring your writings, your favortie writings, names of your favorite authors and speakers. Let us learn from one another. I believe conversations are healthy. When speaking on my show and you have spoken for more than 30 seconds when you are done please say concluded so the next person may begin thier response or their statement. We will respect each other even if you disagree with them or have a issue with them. Mutings will happen if that is not the case. I look forward to talking to you .  Let us begin in hubris.

    Formidable Persons Have Their Visionary Commonwealth In God's Will

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the profound visionary commonwealth of formidable persons.  Formidable ones are chosen by God to supplant official reality.  They are hurled by God into situation specific environments in order to disrupt and inform the accepted idolatries of their time that they are an affront to the intrinsic order of creation.  Formidable ones shatter hubris and self-conceit with the relentless dabar Yahweh (Word of the Lord) knowing that his word never returns void.

    DECLINE AND ASCENSION OF MASONIC CLASSICISM

    in Lifestyle

    We came from an age of the classics.  Through music, science, architecture, philosophy we trace  events and experiences of plebiens and kings.  


    Those classics no longer priveleged, are public but children are given little if any guidance about there significance.  Masonry traces itself back to the origin of ideas and character development.   Through ritual classic true masonic lessons are being passed from generation to the next, to what seems a small cohort, a thread in history. Because of the political life of the Fraternity, some wear this quietly as a humble mantle. 


    We are right to feel perplexed that it is not shared more widely? In contrast to this classic nature, do we want to believe that as unique as freemasonry is, steeped in philosophy and ethics deserves a  roadside billboard to draw interest?  After this fails, as it will, what next? Do we not realize the damage this does is isolated to our own masonic locale?  It pollutes the natural landscape doesn't it?    We are not of the same culture as we were.  Social rank is not bred into us anymore. Nouveau riche enslaved to conspicuous consumption repeatedly colliding with authenticity doesn't stop the parade. Exchange wants to know if being pedestrian can a classic. Is it birthright, hubris, or anomie?  Or can we drill into the capacity to conduct oneself as a gentleman. Are people really that crass or is it the media selling salacious pictures?  We change as we evolve but we see what we want to see.   I'm off to find the edge of the earth- then I'm jumping off.


    Fraternal regards-  Masonic Exchange
