    Brothers I had been working on a book for sometime. I believe its unique in that it offers a practical application of typological communication and gives examples of how to overcome common obstacles in Masonry. In addition, it provides the source for these teachings within our own rituals.

    Here it is:

    BISAC: Philosophy / Metaphysics

    Masonic ritual contains a veiled secret which points toward a hidden psychological current, inherent in the Western Mystical Tradition. This scarcely perceivable sentient science has manifested throughout the ages within the ancient Gnostic schools, the writings of the great Hermetic philosophers, and the noble art of Freemasonry. These institutions have operated as a means of perpetuating a method of personal typology and perception, which is essential to human interaction. The intrinsic numerological correspondences of Craft ritual contain the keys to perfecting this powerful system of communication and the Self.

    This seminal work provides a practical framework, through which the student can master his own typology, understand the elements of perception, and utilize vital communication techniques which can unlock the very mysteries of human existence. By employing techniques as diverse as Jungian psychoanalysis, Masonic geometry, and alchemical parable, Porter has formulated a unique and timely tome that is certain to revolutionize the perceptions of contemporary Masonic culture and the means by which we articulate ideas. We can detect deception, influence others, effect positive change, and synthesize a unique cognitive vernacular, specifically crafted to convey the most profound Masonic truths.

    "The man who achieves Mastery of the secret psychology will be so improved as to be able to accomplish great things in his life and, therefore, his community.All of this hinges on honesty with oneself and the application of speculative Masonry; therefore the secret psychology."

    The Secret Psychology of Freemasonry, Cliff Porter.

    Smash you in the face honesty!

    How to defeat the ego and achieve self-awareness. How psychology aligns with speculative masonic degree ritual and how to truly get to the subconscious of the initiate. How to deal with the many personality traits you interact with in masonry. What power did the ancient seers have. References for future Research that must not be overlooked!

    Gentlemen, it's all here in 169 pages. Plus Humanum Genus, in total, just in case you still had questions about separation of church and state.

    I'm on my third reading at the moment. But I thought I'd surface to tell you boys of the abundant lux to be found in this work. Why, because this ole cajun boy might never put this one down.

    Gentlemen, I'm stoked!
