Why do you want to become a Freemason?

Why do you want to become a Freemason?

well that’s a good question Sir

cause i ve spent 15 years of my life looking for who am really am ?
for me its about knowing who am i really inside
there is no one answer in one place of a religion or philosophy
but of course there is a right answer in each place
i believe that to achieve the ultimate connection with the higher being or to achieve the full salvation you need tow things :

1-the full knowledge of your self as Socrates said ” know your self ” so you can reach the spirit of God in you if may i say (this is the vertical way )

2-be good with your human brothers and help them ,make their live easier and guide them

(the horizontal way )

in my opinion mason was not only about stones and buildings , it was in building the real temple :the human him self
every one attacked the Freemasons but the masons them self never attacked any ideology for one little reason :they belief in the truth is in every human being

why Freemason is secret : well you can,t give a 5 years old a fire or electricity to play with instead of using it right he will burn his house with it
and second not every one is ready for the truth , before Centuries people were not ready to know the earth is moving , or its round at least

so i want to become a free mason to purify my spirit with knowledge and Gnostic and the wisdom of my mind NOT for power or money or prestige but only to come back where i came from

That’s a great answer. I hope you find what you’re looking for. You must understand that Freemasonry is not a school, it is a fraternity. We do not take out a blackboard at our meetings and ask you to copy down the things that will reveal the truth for you. The only advantage gained by being a member of this fraternity is to be in the company of other good men. These men are probably not there for the same reasons you are. I know I have never heard the name Socrates in a lodge meeting. In order for you to learn the things you mentioned above, you would have to seek them out on your own or with other like-minded brothers.

maybe it not a school and its not about educating but i believe its about practicing in real life (here comes the importance of ritual i assume )

maybe Socrates him self not mentioned but what about the others Greek Philosophers ?
what about Pythagoras ? or Hermes him self ?
what about the symbolize it self
for me freemasonry is changing me a lot only by reading and seeking for it
so i believe being with other brothers will make more helpful i think

One of our symbols is an illustration of the Pythagorean Theorem also known as the forty seventh problem of Euclid. This refers to Geometry, an important science for a builder. I simply don’t want you or anybody reading this to get the wrong idea. We don’t usually sit around discussing philosophy, we are far more likely to be discussing sports or the latest viral video.

The lessons of the degrees are the same lessons that most of us learned in our houses of worship or in kindergarden or from our parents. Honesty, Charity, Loyalty, Fortitude and all the other virtues that we are taught as children. We just have a particularly effective delivery system. After the degrees your journey begins and you have the opportunity to begin your own research so you can draw your own conclusions.

Carl Claudy was a prolific Masonic author. Some of my favorite essays by him are called “The Old Tyler’s Talks”. You can find them at the link below. I highly recommend you read the one called “Bluff”.
