We are introduced to this concept of service daily through business dealings, philanthropy and different kinds of charities, although for myself, the first kind that comes to my mind is the contribution or service the mother gives for the well-being of the child. I think the ancient forms of initiation were propagated to full fill this specific need in nature.
Some of us have evolved past torturing another human being and asking the victims to produce their GOD. In the 21st century, we now do it in different ways, in other words; we torture others by our egos flourishing, untiled!!! Keeping us in a state of darkness, to blot out the light, which is a stage of consciousness. We’re still divided and scattered not thinking about the “All Watchful Eye” that is omnipresent. We cannot see it or touch it, but it works through the physical world by the way of our bodies and all living things. Like the fetus inside the mother’s womb, she is there, but the fetus is still blind to her.
The International Order of Freemasonry for Men and Women, Le Droit Humain charges every member to practice using his/her speculative working tools in our daily lives, which in turn makes us operative as we use them to contribute to our triangles, lodges, federation and society by expressing our souls by-way of being a servant. I see it as a person employed to “work” within The Great Architects Universe. Freemasonry can serve the candidate by instructing him/her by first “working” on themselves, which is in step with the ancient maxim of “Man, Know Thyself And You Shall Know The Universe” and within that process, you will be working “to the Glory of The Great Architect of the Universe” which is being the witness of the Creator And/or “to The Perfection of Humanity” the state of Being Free. It takes time and practice to remember how to be guided from within, but the soul will always retrieve what was lost. Each step you take, you will receive confirmation only you can decipher, as you continue to listen to subtle messages. As an onion is peeled, you will eventually remove layers that no longer serve you, but serve others and The Great Architect of the Universe.
As we listen or watch the news we hear about the lack of harmony that is happening on a worldwide scale on every continent and in most communities. The chaos we are currently witnessing and experiencing is not the first time and we are far from the last.
As a member of the International Order of Freemasonry for Men and Women Le Droit Humain,we are continuously trying to live by our masonic values of TEMPERANCE, FORTITUDE, PRUDENCE and JUSTICE and every mason will exercise VIRTUE, HONOR and MERCY.
We practice these values worldwide in the internationality of our Order because they are vital to the progress of humanity in discovering the secrets which are the keys to the problems of life. To unite humanity despite of the numerous barriers we put up against one another is a noble endeavor.
Being ready and willing to WORK on the causes of every effect of disorder have always been woven into Freemasonry. These virtues are attributes that bring out the best or highest vibrations in humanity… So don’t be discouraged because as we see discord on a daily basis, there are many who are trying to create order at the same time on another level.
Le Droit Humain’s International magazine is a magazine that can be viewed by every member of the order in a secure area. The Sovereign Grand Commander of the Order as you would guess, would give a few words to our international brethren in this magazine. If you are a member and have not found the time to read or catch up on the magazines, I hope you will find the time and I charge all members of Worshipful Lodge Amen-Ra#584 Orient of Milwaukee, to read them when your T.F.I.G. permits. Some of the topics you are missing include:
• The vision of the future
• Birth and growth across the planet
• Twinning updates
We are also eager to hear about our pioneer lodges and triangles. We also have information on the internationality of our order, which we call federations,with locations in France, Belgium, Brazil,The Netherlands, Great Britain, India, Greece, U.S.A., Australia, Iceland, Finland, Austria, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, South Africa, New Zealand, Chile and West Africa, with Jurisdictions in Poland, Portugal, Argentina, Israel, Canada, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Germany, Central America and the Caribbean, Mexico and Madagascar, and Pioneer Lodges in Luxembourg, Eastern Europe, Africa, South America and Mauritius. The international convention is also a hot topic and is held every five years and masonic business is always on the agenda, i.e. Our rights and duties. As for the International Order of Freemasonry for Men and Women- Le Droit Humain, American Federation, we have the Square and Compasses which is our MPGC bulletin. Diversity is always a discussion we can’t get enough of,which has always been a mainstay from our founders.
In closing, contemplate the words of this 18th century philosopher Immanuel Kant, who stated,”Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the inability to use one’s understanding without anothers guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s mind without anothers guidance. Sapere Aude! Dare to Know! Have the courage to use your own understanding is therefore, the motto of the enlightenment era.”
Giordano Bruno-1548 – February 17, 1600,born Filippo Bruno, was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, astrologer and astronomer. His cosmological theories went beyond the Copernican model: he proposed the Sun was essentially a star, and that the universe contained an infinite number of inhabited worlds populated by other intelligent beings.
“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”Giordano Bruno
Philosopher and scientist, burnt at the stake 400 years ago for the crime of heresy.The executioners were ordered to tie his tongue so that he would be unable to address those gathered.His writings are still on the Vatican’s list of forbidden texts.The Church is considering a new batch of apologies. A theological commission headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the modern successor of the Inquisition, has completed an inquiry entitled “The Church and the Faults of the Past: Memory in the Service of Reconciliation”
