Well, my thoughts about freemasonry, actually i joined it on january 2018, its been four years so I know just a few things…
Well i should say that freemasonry is a initiation school where you learn moral philosophy, for the practice of virtues. This is just for first instance, then you follow step by step, all in terms of analogy, a path that takes you to your own liberation from the wheel of Samsara, or from Malkut to the Kether in the Tree of Life, or from the Earth to the Sky. Study is the thing that must people believe that will take you the goal of the path, but at this point, I believe like so many others, that is the aplication of anything you study, to the benefit of Humanity, so my benefit, so God´s benefit. Many things I can say, but what I said is just the Cathedral facade.
You are so right saying that this society is the perfect environment for those kind of people, so the thing here is that there are like 2 types of lodges (where we work our rites)
The political lodges, and the non-political lodges.
The political lodges are where they (from my perspective) just gather to discuss political things with the rites of freemasonry and "study" things they don´t truly understand at all, because i´ve walked with them in a lodge, and I felt their contemptuous look at any other people that is not a CEO, or a politician, because i´m just a "young and mid-class man" according to those kind of people, that is like corrupted freemasonry, but the diversity of people is always big, so maybe there are some that understand the point of freemasonry.
And the other type, the non-political, is people that concentrate more in the studies, in the practice of all the values of freemasonry, on the hidden truth of things that is not hidden, and its a real fraternity where people can trust in his brothers, where we can count with the support of them, and so on. its a very beautiful and perpective changing school, where I think the point is to find our freedom and human sovereignty, for the benefit of society.
All the secret part is because people with knowledge have always been pursuit, most in the times where freemasonry take its form and before. But now we are just asked to be discreet.
The conspiracy and all of that comes from people from outside the freemasonry not knowing what we do inside, of course i can just say learning to think by ourselves, and not being programated machines like a great part of humanity on this times. MostPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
