no new members join, masonic lodges are closing or being merged all around the world. With membership receding the financial means and influence of
Freemasonry have also gone back. The esoteric meanings of Freemasonry also seem to be lost on several generations of Freemasons who joined more for
the social aspects, the self-improvement or the network. However, in these modern times of ours there are plenty of other, competing places where you
can build a social network or improve yourself as well as plenty of other places to learn esoteric knowledge.
I enjoy the charitable and or 'right-hand' aspects of Freemasonry a good deal. However, I am primarily interested in the esoteric side, and a venue in
which to discuss such, with like minds. To me, the two halves come together greatly.
Sadly, my desire for the esoteric side of Freemasonry, made me want to research it a great bit, and as such, during my inquisition about why I was
interested in the Craft, I revealed too much about what I had learned, and was denied...The Brothers said they liked me a whole lot, and everybody
thought that I was a rather brilliant and clean-cut kid; but they didn't have any quote, unquote, secrets to divulge to me...
It agitates me to a degree, that the Brother's at my lodge, jerked me around for 4 months, before finally deciding to question me, and have me as a
guest at their Dinner; but then denied me....
Don't get me wrong, I'm still as determined as ever, I just don't like how long they waited and what I went through to be denied; and what I got
denied for..I have a few months to go until I can repetition the Lodge for membership...I plan on keeping that schedule...The Brother I talked to just
told me to be more careful of what I said next time...
