The "knowledge" is not kept from anyone. Find a lodge. Join. Then teach your own children.
Here's something I've said once before: I don't need to be a rocket scientist to learn rocket science.
I am not a mason. Never talked to a mason in person about masonism. I have talked to masons online, but not to any extent about their ideology (as i
try to respect their desire to keep the "secrets" the way they are, for the reasons they do).
But i was interested enough to find out what it was all about. And once i started reading a little, doing a little research, i discovered that all
the secrets were common sense, if you took the time to think about it. Just put your ego aside and be a better person.
Then I figured that they were kept "secret" was simply because nothing is more frustrating than having someone whine about being thirsty, but not
taking a drink of the water you offer them. Maddening, to be honest. In my experience as a manager, i quickly had to learn to quit trying so hard to
save employees that didn't want saving. It wasn't like I was keeping how to be a better employee secret from them. They just had to show up to
work to find out.
Same with masonism. It isn't a secret. You just have to go find out.
