Since the beginning of time man has sought self-improvement and has obtained this in many material ways. His progress starting with the primitive ages to where we are today is a clear indication of his struggle. By in large his achievements have been mostly material and not always attending to inward self-improvement. In today’s competitive environment individuals are becoming energised with the prospect of self improvement. In most cases with the sole purpose of succeeding in business, believing that through attending courses and seminars they will gain the recognition of their peers and improve their standing in the community. They turn to these motivational courses advertised in newspapers such as Dale Carnegie and others. Unfortunately the feel good factor soon wears off. The fact that should not be overlooked is that Freemasonry has been teaching self-improvement for centuries. In contrast with the short term effects of many of the motivational courses offer, Freemasonry by contrast is a lifelong process of reinforcement, repetition and encouragement that takes place every time we initiate, pass and raise a new member or attend a Masonic meeting.
When you join Freemasonry, you now have a network of 6 million brothers worldwide. you will have dozens and dozens in your local lodge that you join, which will treat you as a brother from day one.
You can visit any lodge in the world and meet your “distant brothers”.
You’ll learn how to better treat your fellow man and how to go about life fair and square with the world.
Once you’re part of a lodge, you have to pay your annual fees.
Most of these fees are used to cover the expenses of the lodge and to be spent on Charity. Freemasons donate millions to building children’s hospitals, help underprivileged communities, disaster reliefs, etc and much much more
