DREAMS

You have passed your third degree exam and now you are a Master Mason. So now what.

You have several choices in front of you.

  1. Become an officer.
  2. Become proficient in ritual work.
  3. Move on to the other degrees.
  4. Join one of the many other organizations only a Master Mason can join.
  5. Or slowly fade away like so many do never to be seen or heard from, except fordues time.

There are other options but these are the most prevalent.

If you do the fifth choice in this list you will never know any more about Masonry than you know right now. You will never be any use to the fraternity nor will the organization ever be useful to you.

If you stay with one or more of the top four you will learn how a group can act as a team. You will see how much more the team can accomplish than just one person alone. This does not mean that we are not individuals. Masonry teaches free thinking and this can only be accomplished through self-sufficiency. A determination to be free from all types of restraints is preferred.

Free thinking will open up your thoughts, your hopes, your aspiration. You will be able to express yourself by using your head and embrace those ideas with your heart.

What all of this means is that you should:

Speak with your head

Listen to your heart

And always, always follow your dreams

How to Kill Your Lodge

Don't come. When you do come, come late. Never accept an office. It is better to stay out-side and criticize. The officers asked for the job, let them do all the work. Never pay your dues in advance. Wait until you get your moneys worth and then wait a while longer....

Masonry seeks to "make good men better." Carmel Masonic Lodge #421 is an excellent representation of what Masonry is all about. If you are interested in joining the Masons, you should ask a Mason about becoming a Mason. Potential members are... required to be male, at least 18 years of age, hold a belief in God, are of good moral character, and have resided in Indiana for at least 6 months. Check? Then you petition (via a member) and then can discover all the "secrets" of Masonry, make a ton of new friends, have a lot of fun, and do some good works for your fraternal brothers and the community!read more
