Did your joining of the Freemasons give you what you originally expected? And did you discover things, such as wisdoms and understanding you would have missed had you not joined? Not after specifics of course, just curious to know if the idea behind it all is what us outsiders think or something different altogether.
An analogy may be going on a journey, the car is my religious belief that carries me forward along the road and though I already know my destination, the journey would be helped if I used SAT NAV, Freemasonry is like SAT NAV. The SAT NAV cannot transport me on its own as it is not a car.

By saying the masons do not knock doors you are implying that they are not a religion because of it! You know that's what you meant just like I do... But not all religions do. Where I am from I can not remember the last time my door was knocked, and the last time it was would of been the jehovahs witnesses. And it is because that is what their scriptures tell them to do. At least they stick to it somewhat...
You say if I show the vids you will concede but when I do you make excuses.. Do not fear there are plenty more! Want to see? Will you concede then?
This is so pointless to be honest...

Co-Masonry and other irregular bodies have existed for a long time. Though I do not recognized all organizations who use the name "Mason", I have great respect for many of them, including no1smootha

jamjar, i am 16 years old and i have created an account just to speak with you, i am a 16 year old guy that has recently got in touch with the fake society we see on TV everyday and i am taking all this in pretty easily but i am surrounded by "unawaken ones" everyday, i have recently by chance gone to Paris to see my stepmum and dad.
One evening a few years ago, i met a 32 degree freemason and he opened me eyes so much i cried and felt a weird sensation that i never felt before when he revealed that what everyday life in the streets is nothing to compare to the world being destroyed by powerful people. i don't feel depressed that we will all be killed within the next few 10s of years but i feel i can't do anything about it and i have no one "intelligent" to talk to about it, apart from a friend which is 16 as well, i don't see the freemason anymore as i have moved back to my original country, but i just feel like a worthless petty teenager which has no great value to society (which is pretty much true) yet i want to know more about the REAL secrets behind everything we are being lied to about. I know that i am probably another 1000th person asking you for the truth, but if there is anything anyone could tell me to survive in this horrible and irrational world please tell me.
I am the sort of kid that sits on the computer until 4 am in the morning reading posts on how the Illuminati or whatever other secret society are doing to kill us. I do everything possible to avoid eating the poisoned foods they feed us and thats all i can do to survive because like i said, im a worthless teenager with absolutely no power in this world, heck i don't even think the illuminati cares if i know about what they are doing since i can't do anything to stop them! I feel ever so worthless but i (for my age) am more intelligent and much more rational than any other person i know except for one of my friends AND the freemason i met.... ONCE. i guess that might be a plus point?
What i am trying to say is that you have LIVED and been through things that i couldn't imagine a year ago, but i am just asking you for help, for guidance, for knowledge i can use to survive in this world because knowledge is power and only the powerful ones survive in this world.
I have never posted a post ever so long, i have only read posts, the reason i am asking you help is because i am nothing and i have lost hope, i smoke weed to forget about all the unimaginable things that happen in this world. i dont smoke weed much but when i do, its probably the only time i don't think about the world coming to an end.
I am crying so much right this second of writing this, it will probably not touch you but you are anyone are my only hope to stay sane. please help me.

This is my Freemasonic experience with “Regular” Freemasonry, when and why I demitted and became a “clandestine” Mason, is as they say, another story for another time.
