a reply to: Terpene
My uncle was a freemason or mason, I never asked and not felt like I know enough to spot the differences. But he made no secret in family where he
goes "the lodge" and my impression of it all is, besides the mysticism, it's a men's club with likeminded people. Often very high in influence or
positions but also a lot into charity and helping others, not only financial but also mental growth.
I thought about joining a freemason lodge myself, just to experience what it was that he identified so much with. There are female lodges but not very
close to me. The mindset behind it is what makes it attractive to me, not because any ranks or secrets or connections.
Add: Best to describe it, the freemasons/masons that showed up at his funeral were all well mannered and radiated something I can not quiet grab.
Without being pushy or overtaking, they brought some order into the crowd, managing room in the shadows for the older ladies and people and children
without much attention. I was busy receiving personal condolences but it did not escape my attention they took the situation into their hands for the
better. I did not mind. Like a gentle hand without much fuss, kind of. IDK how to define it else but I'd say gentlemen of the old class? Radiating
power but not in abuse. When the head of them, sorry I don't know the terms, approached me in representation of them, I thanked him and he knew what
it was a bout and just nodded gently and smiled and said a cryptic thing like "God's in everything and everyone, we just need to listen but also
I was very happy about this kind move because I was already taking personal condolences for over an hour and people kind of began to melt in their
black clothes in the sun waiting. A few days later we got a visit from the lodge head bringing a box, his daughter had no interest so I keep it now in
honor. Did not open it as it is sealed with a string and wax, he did not say I should open it or not and it feels not appropriate. A cryptic bunch, my
experiences are they are friendly and well mannered, but also not a lot of young people.
If there is any mason or freemason here that can tell me what this box is about, is it intended to be sealed forever? I should have asked but I felt
at the moment I got it it's very important moment for the man and so instead of asking this, I asked if it's for him, he nodded, just said I will keep
it in honor.
