The Craft is a learning opportunity. The grail we all aspire toward, some level of transformation to a better person is unclear, as is the way one achieves it. As you will find, this is not a short-cut. It is a thought map designed to shape behaviour. I"m inclined to think it places us in an atmosphere of arguments about truth. There is room at this table for one more. A new language, emphasis on control of emotion, it is more like finishing school that combat training. MasonicFX is simply and extension of that. An acquired taste where conversation is about possibilities. Sit in as you like. We stumble along, still trying to find the edge of this interesting universe!

Being is a room of strangers is one thing. Being in a room of brethren is another. I'm inclined to think those who are on the outside looking in, are those who haven't been told the story of how masonry was built on mutual trust created by a tale of one person. This story includes the way he found to communicate with men of all languages and cultures. How? Symbolically. That meant it would appeal to a certain type of man. Knowing ambition was not limited to religion, business or politics, human values were added. And so it went, until we began tinkering with the model, as groups of men always tend to do. The success of this model comes to us by its endurance over a long period of time in human years. The influences that launched masonry were in two layers. One, the values, aiming at a virtuous life, we can trace back to Socrates. Don't believe it? Argue with him. Infrastructure needing to launch the idea required legitimacy. A history was created. A legend was written and the presence of cultural legitimacy were introduced to enhancements, adventurers, scientists, philosophers, artists, writers, the kind of things that define entire cultures over time. All can be traced back to the faith those men had in their discovery. I suggest, none of this would be possible without their trust in one another. Today, we that same connection is possible, the effect of oral history, building undying trust is within our grasp, within each of us.
