But Bro. Darren is at his best when he takes a deep breath and ponders the gentler, deeper side of Freemasonry, as he does in today's The Path(s) of Wisdom.
The Path(s) of Wisdom by Darren SimpsonRead the entire article at Le Chevalier Maconnique.
In today's society, we find ourselves asking, "Where can true wisdom be found?" As Freemasons, we have committed ourselves to a life-long quest for true wisdom and have sworn to protect such wisdom with our very lives from those who would use that knowledge for baser means and self-fulfillment. With such high aims and aspirations, you'd think that Freemasons such as ourselves would be beyond discrimination in our quest. You would think that our journey would be one of genuine learning from all of the available sources of human experience.
That is what you would think....
But we are far from that idyllic example, are we not? We have one faction that is throwing out the pre-Christian origins and heritage of our masonic forebears, and you have some groups disdaining the wisdom of the Christian saints and desert fathers in a blind polarization to esotericism and Eastern mysticism. My only question is, "Why?" Why trap ourselves into our own pre-conceived notions of wisdom?
