I'm not mason and I study esoterism as a hobby and self-empowerment.
There's a thing, A VERY IMPORTANT CONCEPT, called egregore.
"Egregore (also "egregor") is an occult concept representing a "thoughtform" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up
of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more
recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme."
In business, especialy in USA, they have a similar concept called mastermind (probably popularized by the famous "Think and Grow Rich"
self-help classic book.
We also have some popular sayings like:
"Birds of a feather, flock together."
"If you want to fly like the eagles, don't hang around with the turkeys
"Tell me who you hang around with, and I'll tell you who you are."
Bible says something similar:
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
Maybe that's why should be selection and secrecy.
You can't sintonize the hiphop radio station and get japanese eletronic music.
You may want to work to Google, that does not mean that they'll contract you.
BUT - a big BUT - ... everyone is in the same planet... we are probably all brothers in the God's perspective... thereby seems we are part of God,
the largest egregore. "Love one another", Jesus said.
Want it or not, we are in the same boat.
PS.: If you search you'll see that the whole structure of temples are built in a way to facilitate the flux of energy.
Feng Shui is also a way to do things on your own home to aliviate the "bad" energy.
