    Hi and thank you, your post gave me a lot of explanation to my question. It is hard to understand how the system works especially for non-masons and this is why it makes me feel more excited about it. Still 4 months to initiation and the time drags !!! It feels like forever...so what did you do prior to initiation ? Did you meet up regurarly with your brothers to be ? In here it looks like they having a break from masonic season and everyone are so quiet not socialising with others. I assume it may change once I become a Brother(cant wait)

    If you don't mind me asking, do you have a date for your initiation and which lodge is it? My raising is in September and I'll be looking to visit to see other degrees. Would be a pleasure if I could make it to yours!

    In my view the quality of the candidate is generally the major determinant of the quality of the experience of Masonic initiation.

    Perhaps you can make use of your waiting time. A daily examination of actions and motives is useful.

    My wife knows that Freemasonry ritual and such cannot be discussed with non masons. If it were really truly transparent in every aspect and all of the "secrets" were as common as the sunshine 1) It would have less impact and meaning for those who take part 2) There really wouldn't be much reason to join the fraternity.

    My wife also trusts the character of the man she married. She knows if I am ever in a situation that conflicts with my personal integrity or religion that I just wouldn't do it.

    I would expect her to react the same way if something happened at a softball booster meeting or an Avon party. Both of which I have no interest in knowing the details of.

    Good and wise words. It's great that we will be able to call you "Brother" soon.

    That is a very interesting question, unfortunately I don't have a answer. My father in law, (who brought me into the craft), my mother in law was in eastern star, my wife was a rainbow girl ( now mother adviser ),brother in law and my wife's 2 uncles are masons. So I guess I'm lucky to be able to have family to discuss masonic issues with.
