    Hello,

    Are there certain Truths freemasonry teaches that I can't learn anywhere else? I have had spiritual or Godly experiences that I can't explain (although reading Jung is helping) and I really want to know the Truth.

    Thanks :)

    Honestly? There are plenty other ways to learn it.
    What freemasonry offers are diffrent "mixes" of diffrent ideas and teachings.

    I find it interesting that your organization puts work first. I've done that in the past, but focusing on work has typically resulted for me in a hyperfocus state. That state never ends well and I end up back focusing on the Spirit. Is this balance between work and God discussed in more detail in freemasonry?

    There is some form of dividing of your time mentioned for sure.

    Freemasonry is not a singular organisation and there is no universal ritual. Diffrent rituals has diffrent focus points.

    With that being said, there is a danger in taking things litteraly.
    Sometimes a word or a symbol hold a diffrent meaning then you think at firat glance...

    Exactly, depending on where / how it is used.

    Jung dedicated a big part of his work to alchemy which I am just learning about but find interesting.

    Alchemists are sometimes called "celestial gardeners" since they are dependent upon the celestial seasons when growing their substances. Accordingly domestic gardening is useful training for alchemists.

    Interesting, thanks. I heard back from the Grand Lodge and they are forwarding my details to a local lodge.
