Help a brother out and contribute a few dollars to my Patreon page, so far the support from my brothers for Masonic Enlightenment has been dismal. When I got into Freemasonry, I got an introduction to the Trivium and the Quadrivium through Geometry but it was not something that most of the Freemasons I came across actually seriously studied. I believe that the Trivium and the Quadrivium are the pillars of Freemasonry and without them are craft is at a disadvantage, especially in this mass information world. We like to say that we make a good man better but how do we do that? HowRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free In the Fellowcraft degree, we are taught about the seven liberal arts and sciences and that we should engage with in constant study. The seven liberal arts and sciences are divided into the Trivium and the Quadrivium. The Trivium is studied and learned first, then the Quadrivium. It is essential that they are studied in this order. How many Master Masons engage and study the Trivium and the Quadrivium and the seven liberal arts and sciences after the Fellowcraft degree? From my own personal experience visiting many lodges, the answer is not many. The very essenceRead More →

I discussed Rosicrucian alchemy and symbology. Hopefully, you watched the video in the article, RA The Sun God Within Us. In the next article, The Practice of Alchemical Rosicrucianism in Freemasonry and Why It’s Relevant in Today’s World Part 2, I discussed the alchemical writings of Paracelsus and compared it to the eastern streams, which I believe it flowed from. We learned about the importance of the materials we use to build our temple. A temple that is theRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free In my last article, The Practice of Alchemical Rosicrucianism in Freemasonry and Why It’s Relevant in Today’s World Part 1, I started to get into Rosicrucian alchemy and symbology. In this article, I’m going back in time to the early 16th century, to look at the ideas and practices of one of the greatest polymaths, alchemists, magicians, physicians and Rosicrucian’s of the past. An inspiration for the German Renaissance and someone who embodied the Italian Renaissance and great thinkers like, Marsilio Ficino and Pico della Mirandola, Paracelsus. I will also compare these ideas to the easternRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free In my article, “Freemasonry And The Lodge Within The Lodge And The Light Of Enlightenment” (please check it out if you haven’t read it) I explored Freemasonry’s roots and connection to Rosicrucianism in the Age of Enlightenment in Europe. In this article, I’m going to discuss Rosicrucianism, Alchemy and Symbology and how the ideas and practices from them are, in my opinion, one the most important practices and teachings in Freemasonry today. Rosicrucian’s believed in Christianity but they were also free thinkers and men seeking higher knowledge. They realized that the stories in the Bible wereRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free Within Freemasonry, there has always been and a lodge within the lodge. A light within the darkness of the chaos, drama, media propaganda and distractions of the world. A light that leads the way to full human potential through Freemasonry. This light is very dim now and getting dimmer. “Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which itRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free By reading Nietzsche, thinking and absorbing what he’s saying and looking at your life and the world around you today, your perspective and beliefs on life may be changed in a very positive Masonic way. Personally, Nietzsche has helped me to understand who I AM, Why I’m Here and figure out My Life’s Purpose. At the end of the excellent BBC documentary,”Genius of the Modern World – Friedrich Nietzsche” (posted below), you will understand why Nietzsche’s philosophical ideas are so important in today’s world and in Freemasonry. Please watch the short video below and then let’s examine Friedrich Nietzsche’sRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free This post is a talk that was given at lodge in 2014 to the Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis, also known as the Invisible College. Every day, we use numbers and simple mathematics to navigate our world but most people never take the time to look at how numbers and simple mathematics relate to Hermetic Qabalah and the Hermetic Tree of Life. Dr. Amit Goswami, a theoretical nuclear physicist and member of The University of Oregon Institute for Theoretical Physics since 1968 says that Quantum Physics tell us that; “things are not things but possibilities.” This discussion isRead More →

Please Help A Brother Keep This Website Ad Free This post is a talk that was given at lodge in 2014 to the Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis, also known as the Invisible College. In studying the Monad and ancient mathematical symbols and the archetypes of creation, nature, art, science and architecture, I found an interesting idea. It seems that the first three symbolic symbols, which all numbers and shape, originated from, were being described by the seven Hermetic principles, the universal principles of all of life, in the book the Kybalion. The ancient Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, Asian’s and the Persians understood how numbers were more thanRead More →

The good news is, I also believe that can be changed… U.S. Freemasonry needs to meet the millennial generation where they are at, not the other way around. In Freemasonry, there is a severe generational disconnect from the millennial generation. The truth is, most 60-70 year olds don’t understand the rapidly changing technological landscape. They are not the generation that’s going to be directly impacted by technology. According to the Masonic Service Association, in 2015, Freemasonry had the lowest Masonic membershipRead More →
