    Hey brothers, im hoping you can give me some light. There are some masonic terms or phrases, words that i don’t understand or know. For instance, what does it mean when someone uses or says “brother caution”? I know what it means when we say “on the level” or that person or brother is “square”. But what does it mean when a brother says travel light? Help a brother out. Oh, please feel free to add any other phrases or whatever! Thank you brothers!!

    I’d recommend you speak to a member of your lodge.

    I went back and reviewed your posts. My recommendation stands.

    Many years ago, I had repeated difficulty and brusque exchanges with a judge (a martinet,who referred to himself in the third person) before whom I frequently appeared. I asked a colleague for ideas to deal with the issues, as he knew the judge. He recommended asking the judge for help.

    I did so. I don’t even remember the problem I brought to him. The relationship turned 180 degrees. Even after he changed assignments, when appearing before him he greeted me cheerfully like an old friend as I approached the bar.

    I would encourage you to do so. If it doesn’t work with one brother (and I emphasize the word), try another, or two at a time. You’ve lamented the lack of a mentor. As this is important to you, I recommend you take responsibility for finding one.

    But that’s just one old mason’s view.

    Brother, I think they are simply trying to keep anything 'secretive' under a certain veil. You will be best served to ask someone these things in person that knows you personally to be a Freemason.

    Good move! With most people if they feel that you respect them they will have a kindly feeling towards you.
