To my Masonic friends and fellow non-Masons:

Good news, finally. My initation is scheduled for October 22. It might be a "double" initiation, so I think it'll prove to be very interesting, especially to share some of it with another candidate. In any case, I opted to go first, so that I might possibly watch what just happened to me!
Good stuff, I'm very pleased.

Please tell us all about it.

Even after 20 years I get a buzz when a new boy gets initiated, daft ain't it.

Congratulations LTD, your first step towards Light is nigh upon you.

The profane may now commence their inane disparagements.

Congrats m8, hope all goes well.

When was your investigation?
I thought that you still had to go through that?
And how did the investigation go, I have mine this coming month.

Congrats, my friend and soon to be brother...

I am glad you are going first, that you will have an immediate chance to see the ritual...

Thank you, everyone. i appreciate the kind encouragement!

I was told to just take it easy during my night, and not worry about alot of memorization, as I will have a dictation coach of sorts by my side for most of the ritual, apparently. Business suite is required, and apart from that I was advised to pay as close attention as possible to what is happening. Hehe, when I remarked that i'll be very interested in how I woud 'feel" whne I'll walk out of the Lodge that evening, the Masons simply looked at each other and smiled at me, as if to say "you're in store for someething very special."

It is very special indeed, I think you will not be dis-satisfied. Consider yourself very lucky and simply enjoy the night, the memorization stuff will come later.

Again.....CONGRATS!!!

Why do you think that posters in a Secret Society/Conspiracy Theories forum would care less?
As far as I can tell you are already a Mason anyway....

LTD's not a mason yet. He's just starting out. He's kind of like a convert- read all the books and ready!

Hope you enjoy your travails. Like I posted in other threads 'push on and don't waste time between degrees.' Memorize, memorize, memorize.

Don't try to remember what happens because you won't be able to. This is how the process is designed.

I never thought I'd see the day you'd post a compliment. Thank you. That's very encouraging.

Actually, the Masons care. It's a question of mutual understanding, friendship, and encouragement. i think it's nice that some of these threads are about those things.

And Gadfly: Thanks. Not alot of memory work involved yet, but there will be< i'm sure.

theron old chum-

    travail ( P ) Pronunciation Key (tr-vl, trvl)
    n.
    Work, especially when arduous or involving painful effort; toil. See Synonyms at work.
    Tribulation or agony; anguish.
    The labor of childbirth.


Is that any clearer?


LTD you and a few others need to step back from 'the pulpit.' Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean they are KRA-zee

I have been wrong ~

Yep, you sure have been wrong... and here I thought you were trying to be clever... and you weren't... imagine my surprise!

There are no travails in masonry, only travels, brotherhood and education...

Pardon me, but is there anywhere that I or any other mason indicated differently?

A mason is a brother in a different sense than I think you are offering, though.

In the sense he is on the same level as you? he is about to journey the same path, trials and enlightenment you have therefore can be considered a brother?

No, he is not about to journey the same path, trials and enlightenment.

Hence, Freemasonry vs. non-Freemasonry.

Riiiiight- kind of like the Jonestown people just before the Kool-aide?

'Yo, folks, the journey is here! Line up in columns of two.'

It seems to me that much is being made of little. Freemasonry is no 'journey,' it is subjugation. Individualism is left at the door.
