Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Towards the inner transmutation
by (1625 reads)
FreemasonryThe initiatory teaching on the two hemispheres of East and West is connected by the duty to acknowledge oneself, not only as an ephemeral physical entity, but also as an expression of eternal energy....

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Uniformity as an initiatory instrument
by (1642 reads)
FreemasonryMan’s behaviour is the exterior expression of his inner status. In the initiate, this status is the antithesis of the conformism lacking in critical sense, which is typical of the profane culture....

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Dialogues of an oriental Master
by (2166 reads)
FreemasonryIn its rituality Freemasonry states that the “Light of wisdom” rises in the East. The most prestigious side of every Masonic Temple, in fact, is called «East». So many repetitions can’t be considered a simple coincidence. This little mystery excites the esotericist’s curiosity, led to think that the initiatory roots of Freemasonry are much older than those thought in 1717.

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Esoterical meaning of Dante’s Mountain
by (1992 reads)
FreemasonryIn the Convivio, Tome II, Dante Alighieri wrote: « ...in every Work of Art there are always four meanings, the literal, the allegorical, the moral and the anagogical one (Greek anà-ago: to bring up).…» This criterion that sums up four ways of understanding an idea, gives shape to an ideal mountain to be climbed in order to reach the top and find the immaterial purity of the primogenial idea.

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Esoterical Landmarks
by (1866 reads)
FreemasonryMany modern traditions preserve the memory of “old precepts”. Nevertheless, they have narrowed their concepts to suit them to the modern society’s culture. This didn’t happen in the past because profane and initiatory cultures were kept separated and they could meet only through scientific principles. This essay reproposes the reading of some “old precepts”disguised as esoterical landmarks and aphorisms. At the end we add a specific form for admission.

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Discovering oneself through symbols
by (2029 reads)
FreemasonryThe difference between the esotericist and the collector of enigmatic quotations is that the latter can actually understand the use of this matter. No matter if it’s a methaphor, a symbol, an alchemical formula, a geometrical form, a number, a sound or a colour, the esotericist learns its meaning but also its use.....

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Initiatory history of Freemasonry
by (2183 reads)
FreemasonryThe author takes us on a journey which goes from the operative Masonry to the esoterical meanings of Ars Muratoria, Ars Regia and Ars Pontificia. From the reading of ancient manuscripts other considerations, of a more pragmatic nature, can also be derived. One of them is that in history causes do not always coincide with events. Sometimes, therefore, causes and facts are contradictory. This seems to happen in Freemasonry, where many practices given out as a fact turn out to be unfounded. When we read the ancient main points of the Freemasonry, the so-called primitive, we find the rules that directed the life of the Freemason in his professional, initiatory and family relationships. In other words, the rules that connected children and wives of the master mason to the Brotherhood of the Freemasons. In the rules between the family and the Freemasonry we find a forgotten aspect. It is what we can call the initiatory consideration for women. Female initiation, even though is acknowledged in ancient manuscripts, is still cause of contradictions and it feeds a religious misogyny which contradicts the origins of Freemasonry. The Freemason will make his own judgement on its value.

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry Esotericism of the 4 Journeys in the Masonic Initiation
by (2575 reads)
FreemasonryEsonet Conference 2003: First Meeting

The “journey” is the metaphor of a way to the “search” for truth or sacredness. The “journey” is always accompanied by two other symbols: the first is the walk, path or way; the second is the traveller or pilgrim. The journey can be exoteric or esoteric and the difference between them is perfectly clear. In the exoteric journey the pilgrim physically moves from one place to another with the aim of seeing, touching or pounding tangibly the material representation of his own ideal. Whereas in the esoteric journey the traveller doesn’t physically move but pushes himself towards perfection or consecration. He remains in the same place because it’s not his body which needs to move but his conscience, his mind and his spirit. This is the meaning of the “initiatory journey” that, on the contrary of the profane journey, occurs completely inside the Noble Traveller.

Freemasonry > ThreeMagisterialArts The two faces of Masonry
by (2157 reads)
FreemasonryWhy isn’t the true initiate scared of death? Why doesn’t he acknowledge its irreversibility? Because through three initiatory Arts, Ars Muratoria, Ars Regia and Ars Pontificia, the adept reaches and understands the immortal spirit of his interior aspects.

Freemasonry > UniversalFreemasonry The Revelation of Initiatory Mysteries
by (2045 reads)
FreemasonryEsoterism often regards mysteries and secrets of different nature which are unveiled or re-veiled (veiled twice). Amongst these we find Greater and Lesser mysteries. We know that the «lesser mysteries» are the fundaments of initiatory culture and they are handed down in the shape of knowledge or esoteric precepts through several teaching formulas. Little is said, on the contrary, about the Greater Mysteries and it is not clear how they are handed down. In this essay we try to clarify it and to point out what they are referred to.
