Couple of things here:

It has always been my contention that Freemasonry admits only men because it is a celebration of the masculine (Osirian) mysteries. It's not that women "aren't good enough". It's just that the mysteries of Isis, which celebrate the Divine Feminine, are different than the Osirian male mysteries.


This may be so - as a Wicca Initiate (though long past those days) I grasp the differences between the Male and the Female energies. But I also know that both can be channeled by either sex. It's a matter of focus.

In our rituals I had the opportunity to play the roles of both High Priestess and High Priest. As long as a society bases its membership on the physical manifestation of flesh, and not on that which can be generated by the spirit entity, I am highly distrustful. It is prejudiced.

As for "other avenues..." I understand that there are a great many, and I have explored a number. But the fact that I can't join ONLY because I hold this form in the material realm makes me... Well... Disgusted, I guess.

And, as I said, distrustful.

well there are many lodges around (I don’t know any sorry), that have female members. Also it’s not that we hate woman and that they have cooties and what not, but it’s a fraternity, just like how girls have a sorority.

Hello Amaterasu.

Spending time with someone will at least give me more insight into their life than somone who has never spent time with them will have, wouldnt you think?

Often, when I see two people engage in heated fight I think: "They should meet face-to-face, have a cup of coffee/tea together and things may look differently".

When I am faced with outrageous accusiations of who I am and what I do...while merely being a normal, every-day guy who sits at his computer typing and drinking coke...

...I have to ask myself: "Are these people insane? Whats wrong with them?".




Maybe (just a hypothesis) you were being used as a frontman. Someone who looked and saw idyllic behavior and would report this to the world...
Please avoid twisting words here. It reduces your credibility.


They must be using millions of people as frontmen then.



No. I reach out and catch a glimpse of a field. I have learned what the data mean, and how to explore at will. Though it is likely the basis upon which intuition manifests, it is much greater than that. "Channeling" is a whole different critter.


My field-explorations give me different information. I wonder why that is?




Not at all. I am ambivalent about you. It is unclear whether you are motivated to prove this because you believe it or because it is an agenda piece.


Neither nor. Im sick of the libel being waged against decent fellow humans.
And frankly, what I read in the anti-masonic books mentioned earlier and reality dont match up. And thats just...sinister.





It may be an unwitting behavior on your part (as my hypothesis suggests might be the case). But I can only give probabilities on that, and cannot state that those probabilities as I see them reach much higher than 50%, and that is then something that is up in the air.


I´ll give you credit for being willing to discuss this with me. However, please explain to me what you mean by my behaviour being unwitting.




Thank you for the list. Pretty vague, even in the OP. But I'll accept that.



Vague?

The medieval mass-genocide of herbal healers, scientists and spiritual-thinkers on behalf of unproven conspiracy theories and the mass-genocide of world-war-two on behalf of unproven conspiracy-theories and the "red-revolutionary" mass-deportation of intellgent people on behalf of unproven conspiracy-theories is not vague.

If you want vague...pick up some of the anti-masonic books I mentioned.

Yes.



if you honestly think comparing books to your experience as a low level mason


What do you mean by "low level" mason?



and the fact that another book tells you that they killed 50 000 masons under Hitler is a solid grounds for dismissing the conspiracy theories against the order then continue with your smarmy chuckles with your fellow masons on the thread. im not anti masonic but your self assured irritating manner is making it easier.


Im sorry if I irritate you. I mean to understand "the other side", which is why I read those anti-masonic books.

But the tolerance I am supposed to be having as a mason is wearing thin.

Well, I have always hated "girlie groups." My energy is far more masculine than feminine in its natural state (though I am adept at using either). I have had interest in other fraternities through the years, but, again, I am rejected for my flesh.

And it is this unfairness I rail against. And especially where it concerns Masons, who hold a great deal of power. Compared to the college fraternities and other little groups, it has become a symbol to me of that which is wrong in society. I cannot be part of this powerful structure (beyond a few lodges that likely don't give 33's to women, anyway), merely because of the happenstance of the fleshly configuration at my birth.

But I move on, anyway, keeping an eye on all those who diminish me and what I can contribute for merely being female in flesh.

What power are you seeking in Freemasonry exactly? I don’t know what kind of power you can obtain from freemasonry on any note. I know it’s a shame that girls cannot join masonry, but like I said, more and more lodges are starting to let girls join and become master masons. actually about a year ago I went to this huge speech give by bro. Thomas W. Jackson. He was talking about this issue of woman coming into the lodge, and from what I herd among the brethren is that they do not mind. I bet within the next couple years you will see more women in lodges

It would give you insight into anything they reveal, yes. No argument there. My point is that all is not necessarily revealed. (Note the word "necessarily.")

I have not said you have no clue. Only that it is POSSIBLE that, by merely meeting them, you may not have a complete picture.


When I am faced with outrageous accusiations of who I am and what I do...while merely being a normal, every-day guy who sits at his computer typing and drinking coke...

...I have to ask myself: "Are these people insane? Whats wrong with them?".


And I can relate to that. I'm just saying I sense a dark core, "lizard-hearted" I call them, surrounded by many who are not dark in their intent. You are not of that core, I wager. And the core lies to the outer structure. Wouldn't you if you had a dark agenda but wanted a light facade?



Maybe (just a hypothesis) you were being used as a frontman. Someone who looked and saw idyllic behavior and would report this to the world...


They must be using millions of people as frontmen then.


In a sense, they do. Though millions have not met them, the ones who are not dark are shown what they are supposed to see, to pass on to the ones below. And those below pick that up and on it goes down the ranks.




No. I reach out and catch a glimpse of a field. I have learned what the data mean, and how to explore at will. Though it is likely the basis upon which intuition manifests, it is much greater than that. "Channeling" is a whole different critter.


My field-explorations give me different information. I wonder why that is?


Vested interest creating blindness? Just throwing out a possibility. I have no idea whether you are capable of walking that realm, or not. But if you are, there are several explanations I can come up with.




Not at all. I am ambivalent about you. It is unclear whether you are motivated to prove this because you believe it or because it is an agenda piece.


Neither nor. Im sick of the libel being waged against decent fellow humans.
And frankly, what I read in the anti-masonic books mentioned earlier and reality dont match up. And thats just...sinister.


I agree that there is a mismatch between the dark ones, the lizard-hearts, and the rank and file. I have yet to read much about the claims these others make, but I am going to believe that they may have generalized overly much.

I can see that many are good of heart, Human-hearted, if you will. But I also see that core...




It may be an unwitting behavior on your part (as my hypothesis suggests might be the case). But I can only give probabilities on that, and cannot state that those probabilities as I see them reach much higher than 50%, and that is then something that is up in the air.


I´ll give you credit for being willing to discuss this with me. However, please explain to me what you mean by my behaviour being unwitting.


Not so much your behavior, per se, as what information you are given to bring back to others. Again, hypothetically, you could have been brought into "normal" houses, told glowing things, and sent on your way, and meanwhile are never shown the "black room in back..." That kind of thing.

I will admit, you personally may never have gotten all the way to this core. You may have dealt with Human-hearted individuals. I don't have that detail of vision.

If I can find a book or three for free, I'll read them. I would buy them, but right now I am looking for work and have not a quarter to my name (I do have a couple or three pennies).

Surely the lower ranks are mostly powerless. It is in the upper realms where power starts to flow. I seek to look at things from that height.

I'm a woman, not a girl, though. "Girl" has a youth and sexuality surrounding the term. "Woman," on the other hand, while it can include youthful and sexual elements, does not specifically mean any of that. It denotes a human who happens to be female.

I do hope women are welcome soon. At all levels. Thanks for the info.

This is the old "looks good from the outside? Its evil at its core" thinking.

"The Angels of Darkness will appear as angels of light"

"Its a Trojan Horse"

"What is hidden and unknown we must fear"

Its not like I havent considered all of this. But tread carefully with this type of thinking...it can lead down very dark paths. We use it to artificially create "enemies".

I dont have as much of a vested interest in freemasonry as you might think. In fact, I find it rather boring at times and worthy of reform. But the friendship, uprightness and trust learnt there sure beats many other things Ive seen in this world.

On the note of lower level freemasons, I would like to know what a higher level freemason is.

I came into freemasonry with a spiritual outlook and to gather as much info and energy as I can. I would like to know as in what regards the difference between a low level mason and high level mason are

Thank you

Skyfloating and other Masons,

It's the secrecy. Get rid of the secrecy and you get rid of the problem. You bring it on yourselves.

To the outside world it looks like you are either hiding something illegal, immoral or evil or it appears you are practicing discrimination; which you are. Unless any man can join, it is discriminatory whether you redefine the word or not. Again, it's your own fault.

I have never bought into the wild accusations, even though I could name many Mason's I know who are disgusting human beings and crooked businessmen.

I'm sure most of you are great people, but you combine the three factors, secrecy, exclusionary membership practices and those among you who have wronged others; you get what you are experiencing.

Secrecy and exclusionary practices never leads to anything good or general acceptance by society. I quite frankly know too many Masons to not be aware that many Masons consider themselves superior. It is inevitable in the same way Police get trapped into that mindset.

Any time a group separates itself from the rest of society socially, it is a fact of life that it's members will start to consider themselves superior to others. You can't stop that, no matter what you say.

The way you guys gang up on people here does not help your cause either. It's so obvious it's almost humorous. I believe a wise person would just ignore those threads that bother them. To others it looks like proof of some kind of conspiracy and I'm surprised you guys can't seem to see that.

That's where you're really wrong. If you are a former Wicca practitioner, I would think you'd already know that. Everything Masonry can teach you about how to best govern your life, your company, your country or the world is taught in the symbolism explained in the first 3 degrees. It's all laid out pretty clearly, just up to you to implement it.

Not a problem. It happens. [smile]

The ones who rub elbows with (and are) people in Washington and other high level places in the world. [shrug]

The ones in positions to make a difference worldwide....

If Masonry is as innocent *at its core* as some suggest, that would suit me fine. If, on the other hand, they are not, it would put me closer to doing something about it and bringing about a better perception of the group than currently held by a great many.


Thank you


Most welcome.

You're absolutely correct.
  1. Masonry doesn't allow atheists. I have more than a few atheist friends, and I sometimes take issue with that particular requirement, but its there nonetheless.
  2. Masonry doesn't allow women. Naturally, it's easy for that to offend some people, male or female.
  3. Masonry doesn't allow criminals. Personally, I think that's a pretty good discrimination to make, but I suppose there are some former convicts who've truly reformed who might benefit from its teachings, and I'm sorry they aren't offered that opportunity.
It would be nice to remove any or all of those restrictions, though it is not yet within my power to do so. If such a motion ever came up in a vote I was privileged to, I would give both sides of the argument my highest attention before making a decision.

Or were you inferring some other form of discrimination I haven't covered here?

No... This is what I "see."

I tend to be a very careful treader. [smile] I only say what I say because that is what I "see." And I "see" a lot more. Much of which is summarily dismissed by most. But that's another thread.

I do not doubt that at all. I'm just saying that it is *possible* you have been misled, directly or indirectly. Keep the good work flowing, the Human heart open, and if the core is rotten, it will be vanquished.

First Skyfloating, the second post you made in this thread shows a Masonic Memorial or such. Where is that? I read somewhere it was in Isreal.

Second


Notice how all the Masons have symbolic/meaningful avatars here on ATS. This is because they speak in symbols and numbers.


From the first Page... So what do you think my Avatar means?




They'd rather "leave" anything that doesn't make Masonry sound awesome. But not too awesome, of course ... anytime people talk about what happens behind closed doors with blacked-out windows at lodges, the ATS Masons always say, "oh, we're just planning our next pancake breakfast."


That is why we are very open and explain our bad eggs. Such as what is posted on Masonicinfo.



It's the secrecy. Get rid of the secrecy and you get rid of the problem. You bring it on yourselves.


Then why don't College Fraternities get this type of flak? Or Sororites?
How about the Knights of Columbus?
Elks?
Lions?
I am quite sure we can name many many more organizations that keep things secret.

How about the Boardrooms of Privately held companies that legally do not have to publish the minutes of their meetings.

I'll accept that what you say is true, insofar as the first 3 degrees' teachings go. (Are they on the web? Or do I have to have a penis to find out what they are?)

But I will say this. What is taught at lower levels may or may not be reflected in upper level teachings. I am reminded of Scientology, which has pretty mundane teachings going on at the newbie level, but get progressively weirder and "out there" as you get closer to the "top" (and I place that in quotes, because, as far as I can tell, the "top" is not really the top. Those at the top don't believe the crud they are indoctrinating others into believing.

So. Again, without having any data but others' words, combined with the fact that my physical manifestation tends to preclude high level access, I can only speculate.

Well, I'm a 32°. You'll have to decide for yourself if that means anything. Some theorists here think that means I'm privy to all sorts of uber-secret goings on, but to me it just means I paid $175 and sat through 14+ hours worth of plays on stage in front of me that brought me from 4 to 32 in one day.

And yeah, it's all available on the web or your local library.

Secrets are no more. You can google up every detail and text of masonry.

But what you´re suggesting here is a transparent society without privacy.
