    Hello, my name is Ian, and I am not yet a Mason, but I have contacted my local lodge and am getting the process underway. I have been a member of My Freemasonry for a little while now, mainly to do my research. I wanted to see what Masonry is all about, and by reading other people's questions and the other members responses, I was able to decide that I do, in fact, wish to become a Mason. I look forward to continuing my journey as a Mason, and I look forward to making many new friends and learning more to Broaden my mind and become a better person.

    UPDATE: It has been a long while since I was last on here. Sorry about that, but you know how life is. Anyways, on December 19th, 2016 I was Passed as a Fellow Craft. I have really enjoyed my journey thus far, and look forward to acquiring my Master Mason's Degree in much less time. I still want to throw out a big thanks to the members here at MyFreemasonry - without you guys I wouldn't have ever felt comfortable petitioning my lodge and joining up. I'm look forward to the days ahead!

    It is easy to become obsessed with a billion explanations of our symbols. The craftsman should reflect on his teachings and works. The deeper meanings will occur to you more over time and with practiced reflection.

    In the end, we are but a copy made in an image. And our teachings are to practice this image. It is a sacred truth that if you are a copy; then the one true form exists. We are rough longing to be perfect and by the symbolism of the dialogue the allegory teachings are a prophecy to us that the perfect one does exist.

    God is at its center
    And we are God's followers.
    God calls us a priesthood.
    We are the priests.
    We have chosen a side because we choose light. Light is good. And there is no darkness in God.

    UPDATE: Again it has been a little while, though I come bearing good news. Last night I gave back my FC proficiency, and am slated to go through the next phase on the 17th of this month! I am eagerly looking forward to it, and to moving forward on my journey.
