… it is not about freeing one's self from one's mind, it is about freeing one's mind from one's sense of self (ego) so that everything comes from a place of honesty, kindness, and truth.

Sounds like most of the people who make up secret societies are sociopaths, or are stuck with a 3rd grade mentality.

Many so called "enlightened" folk like to say that to be a person of said light one has to free themselves from their mind … that has always struck me as an odd thing to express and always felt to me as fundamentally missing the mark. I look at it this way … it is not about freeing one's self from one's mind, it is about freeing one's mind from one's sense of self (ego) so that everything comes from a place of honesty, kindness, and truth.
This thing we call life is too short to be controlled by velvet ropes, regardless on which side of the ropes one happens to be on.
That is all … to be.

Secrets Societies aren't created to keep secrets, secrets are created to justify the existence of secrets societies.
