The Principles of Freemasonry
Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternity in the world. The ultimate goal of the freemasonry fraternity is to improve the character of its members. Character is a man’s most valuable possession. Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote these poignant words of wisdom, “It is not enough merely to exist…..Every man has to seek in his own way to make his self more noble.” This motto captures the essence of what freemasonry aspires to achieve in every aspect of their lives. Freemasonry members are men from all walks of life, and they are from every race, creed and nationality. Freemasonry, as a group, is committed to making each member a better man. They are committed to attaining spiritual enlightenment so they can attempt to achieve moral perfection. Freemasonry strives to make the world a better and more humane place for all mankind.
Membership into the freemasonry is based on one essential qualification, a belief in a supreme being. Although freemasonry members believe in a Supreme Being or God, there is no discussion of religion or politics at lodge meetings. Freemasonry is extremely proud of their tradition of brotherhood, their unwavering allegiance to their country, and its member’s long history of countless acts of charity and compassion. Members of freemasonry are dedicated to the welfare and happiness of all human beings. The fundamental principles of the freemasonry are based on the Golden Rules. They want to alleviate human suffering and promote truth and everlasting happiness.
