In My Opinion, the biggest “Secret” in freemasonry, would be….
Ssshhh, I must say it in a low breath… “That, there are no great secrets” Honestly! The passwords, ‘n how we may know each other, is in fact
is a secret. But isn’t that the means ta the end? What everyone wants ta know is what the passwords protect, ‘cause you wouldn’t have
passwords if there wasn’t “someth’n” that needed guarded. So it would seem. ‘N that “someth’n” is that without everyone think’n
there was someth’n more, they might not be think’n ‘bout masonry at all.
Ever watch kids in a playhouse… “N0 G1R7S AL0UD”, “We don’t like Billy, He does drugs”, or “What’s the ssssecret passsssword?”. Ya
think they were try’n ta take over the world, or plot assassinations? As far as the Obligation… how ‘bout the boy scout’s moto: (Check me on
this it’s been a bit)… “On my honor, to do my best to God, and my Country, and obey the law of the pack”? Look
religion, 'n collectivism.
Again, that is in my Opinion.
Has Masonry hurt me? Since I’ve become more involved with the Grand Lodge, I get a lot more… “Your never home.” Or “…, but you did lodge
stuff last night”. However, she helps with the projects ‘n is always there when giv’n away scholarships, volenteer'n at band camp, or pass’n
out pies ta senior citizens.
Has Masonry helped me? ATS’s server wouldn’t be big enough for my post. I’ll tell you what. YOU organize a fund raiser; setup, ‘n execute a
successful projects that protects & helps innocent kids, then be able ta donate all left over proceeds ta send a high school senior ta college who
might not have been able ta go. Then when you receive the thank you letter from said student, say’n that their life is better, maybe then you
could begin ta understand how it has helped me, just this month (would'a been more, but got married, 'n unable to benifit as much as normal).
