I want to thank all of you for your advice and words of encouragement. My initiation was held a little over a week ago, November 29th and it was a profound deep and meaningful experience.

One suggestion: Check around with the nearby lodges in your area. See if any of them are holding an EA degree. If so, arrange to visit and observe the degree from the sidelines, it will help your understanding. (BTW- Congratulations on your initiation, I hope that you will come to cherish Freemasonry, as much as I do)
