The Tao of Masonry
Okay, I’ll admit it: I’ve made my share of shameless ego posts on Usenet. I’m still making them because I like the interactive medium, but with the blogosphere growing daily, communities are becoming a more viable way to exchange ideas.
In case you haven’t figured it out, I’m a Freemason. And in case you were wondering, I’m also a Taoist. One of the translations of the word “tao” is the word “way”, which corresponds nicely to the idea that this blog is intended as a way for me to express my thoughts and ideas about my Masonic Travels. I originally thought about creating this back in the fall of 2005, when I was about to be installed as the Worshipful Master of Friendship Lodge. I found that I was much busier than I had anticipated I would be, and only now, as we break for the summer, do I have the opportunity to gather my thoughts… and hopefully create some more consistent habits.
And of course, the inevitable disclaimer:
My opinions are my own. This is my own web log, and I’m writing only as myself and not to advance any positions or opinions of any official Masonic body. And as for official Taoist positions? Well, you know…
