Freemasonry > An instrument of initiatory research
by (2031 reads)
FreemasonryFreemasonry is a precious instrument of initiatory research for those who want to overcome the barrier of its formal and exoteric aspects. Although Freemasonry is not the only mysteric source of the West, it is certainly the most significant container of symbolic representations available to the researcher. It is a complex of ancient and archaic initiatory fragments that, between past and present, build a wisdom bridge for a tradition flowing from the East to the West.

Freemasonry > ‘To die as oneself’, the highest virtue of an initiate
by (2003 reads)
FreemasonryBefore we can talk about initiatory virtues we should explain what initiation and initiatory identity are. There are different opinions on initiation. Some are symbolic; they last the time of a ceremony and only require the physical presence of the postulant. Some are integral, slow and complex, because they imply the transformation of the being, who ‘dies as himself’.

Freemasonry > The Chamber of Reflection
by (26845 reads)
FreemasonryThe Chamber of Reflection is one of Freemasonry's most alluring, thought provoking and truly esoteric symbols. The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite (AASR) prescribes the profane, before being initiated, should enter a special room which is called Chamber of Reflection (CoR) where they will contemplate why they have chosen to embark on the Masonic path, their life, their past, and their future.

Freemasonry > Rings of Strength
by (2541 reads)
FreemasonryThe mental strength of a man becomes a ring of strength that, by joining with other rings, makes an energetic chain whose combination of strength and quality equals the sum of the rings. The similitude in this instance is very important; a different mental intensity prevents the rings from communicating and makes the strength of will, mind and conscience intransmissible. If the rings are compatible, on the other hand, the chain is strong and its energy can build an eggregore.

Freemasonry > Compendium for the Master Tiler - Masonic rules for tiling
by (2331 reads)
FreemasonryThese notes have been written to avoid the loss of the experiences developed during the tilers' courses held during the 1978-79 and 1980-81 at the Order in Turin, Italy. This compendium doesn't claim to resolve all the aspects of tiling but to highlight its most relevant features, since tiling is one of the most important ‘operative' functions of Freemasonry towards the profane world. In particular, if an unsuitable or undeserving postulant is admitted by mistake, this has repercussions on the Institution.

Freemasonry > The Carpet
by (2124 reads)
FreemasonryCan therefore an oriental carpet deliver a secret, esoteric message to whoever is able to receive it? My answer is affirmative and, on the other hand, “the wind blows wherever it pleases”

Freemasonry > Orientations and Perambulations
by (2134 reads)
FreemasonryTo orientate, or to orient, means to face or turn to the east, to the rising sun, thus receiving light and heat, that were, especially in ancient times, the primary source of energy. So, men used to orient themselves to face the east, the sun, in order to receive energy and then balance it inwardly.

Freemasonry > Chain of Union
by (4319 reads)
FreemasonryFreemasonry is a “Peculiar Morality, veiled in allusion and illustrated by symbols.” Of course, there are many types of symbols, there are visual symbols, pictures, oral symbols, which primarily make up speech, and demonstrated or enacted symbols. The Chain of Union is an “enacted” symbol, that is, a rite by gesture.

Freemasonry > Freemasonry’s occult anatomy
by (2505 reads)
FreemasonryMany people discuss about separations and initiatory diversity. They forget that when these events occur in supposedly brotherly environment, it means that something is wrong. The initiatory principles that enlighten the spirit of Freemasonry can’t be responsible for the separation of some masons; therefore we must look for the reasons elsewhere. It could be due to human error or to exoterical conditions and rules. This problem doesn’t concern only Freemasonry, though. If we follow the principles of an occult but likely ‘anatomy’ we will find the head as the center of command, which judges, decides, acts, communicates but most of all produces thoughts.

Freemasonry > Lost_Sacralization The lost Sacralization – Part 2
by (2030 reads)
FreemasonryThe Lion and the Tiger – Esoteric value of two of the Symbolic Animals. The (lesser) Mysteries of modern Freemasonry are the exoteric manifestation of ancient mysteriosophical Schools that, in the East and then in the West, have descended amongst men to bring the sense of their initiatory ideas. These ideas are in today’s Freemasonry less imperfect than those of their Adepts, which indeed pursue with tenacious imperfection their own inner perfection through Freemasonry. Before seeking Ritual and initiatory perfection, it is necessary to face honestly and courageously a theme that appears laic and profane, where it is expressed perhaps one of the main imperfections of the present initiatory system. We must raise the ambiguity of the alleged universality that is in fact only partially true.
