Agreed...I've been a Master Mason for almost 25 years, but haven't been active in the lodge for the last year or so. Our lodge does not recruit
My father was a mason and that was the main reason I petitioned to join.
In my understanding, as you progress through different levels you might obtain a little more knowledge about the brotherhood. As stated earlier, you
really start gaining information as you reach the higher levels of the Scottish Rites. That's the way I understand it, but I'm not advanced enough
to know for sure.
My father-in-law reached the 8th level of the Scottish Rites before deciding to stop trying to advance. He also stopped attending the Rites'
meetings and came back to our local Masonic Lodge. I asked him the reason and he just said he didn't want to talk about it. I left it at that...
