Hi! Yet another basic request. " Like a child learning to walk, i shall stumble and fall "
If the good masons! So kindly could tell us " soon to be "... A little of they`re personal experiences from " ground zero " the first prosess ! From application to achievement ;D Duration / introduction / preparations / emotions : " The more the marrier "
It'll most likely differ per masonic order, if not per lodge, but I'm happy to share mine.
After I had tackled the issued that had held me back for so long -- that of the Supreme Being -- I joined a masonic forum and asked for information about co-freemasonry. I was given some options, made my choice, and contacted LDH.
After having received a detailed leaflet, I had a lengthy conversation with a Bro:. who later turned out to be the head of the British Federation. Based on that conversation and my need to find a lodge that meets on Saturday, he then suggested two lodges to me, and asked whether he could pass my details on to them.
I agreed, and shortly thereafter the then master of what would become my motherlodge contacted me and told me about a public ceremony they would be hosting. I went to see it, talked to the Brn:., and the rest, as they say, is history. ;D
I signed my application form, and met with 2 Brn:. of the lodge on separate occasions to be interviewed. Both interviews proved favourable, as did the ballot in lodge. I was initiated on 11 Feb 2006.
From petition to initiation it took 8 months; 8 incredibly valuable months during which I did much soul searching and what I later understood to be "preparing the ground" for the structure that would be built on that ground.
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
