    MYTHS OF MASONIC ESTRANGEMENT

    in Lifestyle

    I'm  wondering how the Craft organization is preceived.  Long ago, we became organized into Grand Lodges that protect and preserve. If we ask 'what is freemasonry, we would learn some saying it is Grand Lodge; others ritual; others lifestyle- all accurate.   I wonder if these views ever compete to be the truth and then I think this is a lesson in tolerance, that ebbs and flows.  It's an idea worth considering that each element of the Craft is up for discussion.


    Is a mason complete as an Entered Apprentice? Can we guide him into an understanding of symbols and metaphysics.  Much easier to focus on rank and ritual which explains a lot.  So you absorb the experience of Lodge, but then beging thinking deeper thoughts. The dialogue of a Lodge is practical- administration and metaphor- ritual. The venecular slips a little when education, debate, discussion are optional, occasional add-ons so not to compete with the assumed functions- Ritual and management. Too much? Ridiculous! Unmasonic?  Thank you Copernicus. Thank you Galileo. Thank you Kepler! We cannot be so ponderously locked into a conflict model can we?  Conflict- they're dropping out; too many distractions; we're not doing enough to recruit!  We've all heard it. The follies of the father have returned to haunt the son.  Isn't it folly to think we can suspect judgement about who we bring into masonry and believe think we are bringing like-minded men together?  Experience seems to suggest we are stratefied, socially, academically and intellectually.  Emphasis is about reduction. Remove memory work. Remove study. Remove discussion and debate among gentlemen. Remove the spiritual nature and sacred space of Lodge. The music: except for a few scattered lodges-that too has stopped.

    Brave New Mind: Dr. Elliott Maynard

    in Spirituality

    Are you ready for the new paradigm? Elliott Maynard, Ph.D., a brilliant neo-renaissance consciousness scientist, gives us a glimpse of the astonishing reality emerging, as revealed in his new book Brave New Mind: Living in a Future-Science World.


    A conceptual designer and visionary, Dr. Maynard has researched and developed 25 keys to personal and planetary evolution, making the quantum field accessible to everyone seeking expanded consciousness and lives of personal fulfillment and enlightenment. Dr. Maynard believes the integration of traditional science with consciousness technology can unlock the quantum solutions we need to finally shift beyond the global problems we face on Planet Earth. He invites us to transcend a reactive, revolutionary mindset and embrace an interactive, "re-evolutionary" state of being, unfolding quantum transformation on this planet and in our personal lives.


    With a Ph.D. in Consciousness Research, Dr. Maynard's beautifully diverse background encompasses advanced graduate work in global ecology and oceanography, serving on the faculties of Adelphi University and Dowling College. A certified managerial consultant, he has held top leadership roles in multiple corporations, currently Founder and President of the Arcos Cielos Foundation. He is active in the Aerospace Technology Working Group, the Humanitad International Leadership Foundation, The U.S. Psychotronics Association, the World Future Society and the Kepler Institute for Space Philosophy. Living his dream, he is also an accomplished artist, sculptor, musician, underwater photographer and filmmaker.

    MASONRY LOST IN TIME

    in Lifestyle

    Humans have an interesting ability. We can fill in gaps on our own to make sense of what we experience.  When Aristotle was pondering the universe he described a relationship based on what he knew. We called it geo-centric. It lasted until the 16th century mathematic Copernicus determined the sun was at the centre. The earth was centered. The sun, moon and planets circled around it.  Brilliant. But today if we dissect brilliance  we can put ourselves to the task of finding flaws and OMG we come up with something. To the rennasiance mathematician those orbits were perfect circles but the German theologian cum astronomer Johannes Kepler began redoing the mathematics and noticed the effect of universal bodies was pulling and pushing as if the planets were suspended by gravities in perfect balance. We can forgive Copernicus for thinking we did orbit the sun while all the other planets continued to orbit us. He fed us what we needed-a sense of perfect symmetry- perfect circle orbits.  Surely it is possible the way humans behave is like that too.    And Kepler, the first physicist, stretched and pulled our perfect circles into shapes of perfect balance with facts.  Did we become enslaved or liberated by science?


    Is it possible to look at the Craft as forces and influences? What forces do you see in masonry? What is at the centre? Is it imperative to find perfect circles or perfect balance of forces?

    The Music of Pythagoras by Musicologist Kitty Ferguson

    in Radio

    On Thursday May 28th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
    review the 2008 book "The Music of Pythagoras" by musicologist Kitty
    Ferguson. This is a wonderfully erudite and deeply meaningful book on
    the accomplishments, and lasting influence of the most important of the
    pre-Socratean philosophers, and perhaps the most important ancient
    avatar of the Western Esoteric Tradition. As a musicologist Ferguson is
    able to fully expound on the master's development of "The Music of the
    Spheres" from mythical Orpheus through Kepler to Close Encounters of the
    Third Kind (we can all whistle that one). The Pythagorean harmonious
    universe of music, mathematics, and geometry has been re-validated in
    modern times with the advent of new theories in quantum physics. It was,
    of course, the bed rock of Qabalah, Alchemy and Magick. We will
    demonstrate some applications of the Pythagorean magical scale used to
    activate psychic centers (chakras) and discuss the employment of these
    techniques in magical operations. So tune in, tune up and we'll sing
    along with the planets.

    Objections In the Discussion of Faith and Reason (Part 2)

    in Religion

    The Reasons to Believe #37


    Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 2 Corinthians 10:5: "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." 


    Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from J.P. Moreland: "God maintains a delicate balance between keeping his existence sufficiently evident so people will know he's there and yet hiding his presence enough so that people who want to choose to ignore him can do it. This way, their choice of destiny is really free."


    Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "Objections In the Discussion of Faith and Reason" (Part 2) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:


    Today, we will continue with our objections and replies in the discussion of faith and reason:


    Objection 4: What about all those intellectually brilliant unbelievers, the counter-examples to Justin Martyr? If Christianity is so reasonable, why did Celsus, Plotinus, Hobbes, Machiavelli, Voltaire, Rousseau, Goethe, Melville, Jefferson, Shaw, Russell, Franklin, Sartre, Camus, Nietzsche, Marx, Freud, and Skinner all reject it? 


    Reply A: Christianity is reasonable but it is not obvious. It is more like E=MC squared than like 2 + 2 = 4.


    Reply B: If Christianity is so irrational, why have so many brilliant minds accepted it? The assortment of unbelievers mentioned above is easily overcome by Paul, John, Augustine, Aquinas, Anselm, Bonaventura, Scotus, Luther, Calvin, Descartes, Pascal, Leibniz, Berkeley, Galileo, Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, Newman, Lincoln, Pasteur, Kierkegaard, Shakespeare, Dante, Chesterton, Lewis, Solzhenitsyn, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Tolkien, da Vinci, Michelangelo, T.S. Eliot, Dickens, Milton, Spenser and Bach, not to mention a certain Jesus of Nazareth.
