Whence Came You? - 0500 - Shakespeare and Freemasonry

Image
This week we finish up an article we started a few weeks ago about the Great Pyramid and initiation. It asks the question we all want to know, “Does Masonry hold the answers to life's problems?” Then we hear a pitch for a brand new fraternity, in 1928--the Fraternity of Osiris, Temple of Memphis. What could this new fraternity offer America in the heartland of Kansas City? Money, wealth, health? We’ll wrap it up with a longstanding controversy of Shakespeare--Was he a Freemason? All this and more, stay tuned for this special episode, No. 500!

Whence Came You - 0498 - Freemasonry in Color

This week, we continue an article on the Great Pyramids at Giza and discuss their significance and their possible use. Can we reconcile the pyramids as both a place of initiation and burial? Then we're going to dive into the science of colors. We search for meaning in the colors of Freemasonry. What do the colors blue, red, yellow, and green even mean? We've got a special guest--Roy G. Biv to explain it all. Stay tuned!

This week, we talk about tattoos as a ritual. How old are the oldest tattoo tools? How old are the oldest tattoos? And what does the whole process have to do with the rite of passage? Then we'll hear from Illustrious Brother Steven L. Harrison in this week's Masonic Minute. The Masonic wedding-- is that really a thing? Finally, we'll wrap it up with a piece from Initiates and the People--a Rosicrucian text from 1928 on the Great Pyramid and its purpose! All this and more--stay tuned!

Whence Came You? - 0496 - Updating Astrology

Image
This week, we take a look at a gleaming book review of the Master's Word , something I found absolutely humbling. Then we look at some modern scientific discoveries in the realm of astronomy. What can the age of stars tell us about a ten billion-year-old collision of galaxies? Who were some famous astronomers who also happened to be Freemasons? Finally, we'll wrap it all up with an article from Astrology Magazine back in 1944. In an age where science was actively contradictory to the astrological understanding, how are these seeming juxtaposes explained away? Does the science and astronomy of the day take away anything from astrology as a divine science? All this and more. App extras include the original issue of Astrology Magazine.

This week, we ask the question, why should you not push somebody into that officer's chair? Or maybe you should—if you want to burn them out quick. Then, we'll hear from ILL. Brother, Steven L. Harrison, as he tells us about the bicentennial of the Grand Lodge of Missouri. You'll never believe where that first building was located. Next up, joining the Masons ruins a marriage! We’ll hear what Ann Landers had to say back in 1981 on the topic. Maybe it wasn't so much Freemasonry that ended that marriage. We'll wrap it all up with a first-hand account of the dedication of a building at the International Peace Garden, and how the Freemasons were intimately involved. All this and more--stay tuned!

This week we talk about the revolution of the Masonic Convention. What's the real benefit to a Masonic convention? Is there a future for such events? Next, we will finish our adventure in reading Ancient and Modern Initiation by Max Heindel with Part 2, Chapter 7 The Stigmata, and the Crucifixion. What is the Stigmata? And what do occultist feel INRI really stands for? We'll wrap it all up with a reading from Illumination magazine in 1931 on the art of living by Spencer Kellogg--who let spill the beans on the secret of life! All this and more, stay tuned!
