The Craft is a learning opportunity. The grail we all aspire toward, some level of transformation to a better person is unclear, as is the way one achieves it. As you will find, this is not a short-cut. It is a thought map designed to shape behaviour. I"m inclined to think it places us in an atmosphere of arguments about truth. There is room at this table for one more. A new language, emphasis on control of emotion, it is more like finishing school that combat training. MasonicFX is simply and extension of that. An acquired taste where conversation is about possibilities. Sit in as you like. We stumble along, still trying to find the edge of this interesting universe!

Like many of us, I do like drama. Without it this expansive universe draws us along into a metaphoric darkness, like little comets streaking across horizons. Your oracles relate to you of course, but how you intepret and what you do with them is validation for both of us, IMHO. The fact you respond to oracles puts you in a favoured group of people I'd most enjoy meeting. It's your influence. Isn't that an odd word- influence. One day I walked into a national art gallery, to see a display of van Goghs work. Now, years later, the joy I felt standing that perfect distance back, my optical glasses in my pocket, making colours fuse together and realizing he was communicating with me. For a moment, I would like you to try it. You are a visitor, an art lover, an affectionato of atmosphere, a self satisfied man doing things privately, without explanation. I won't ask what you have found but I am willing to listen. To be honest, I like to imagine this is the type of conversation that brought pleasure to those audacious smart guys who mischieviously toyed with the dark arts and piety to expand the quality of life for all mankind. Centuries later we find FM doesn't tamper with our preception. It describes different perspectives. 'I wandered lonely as a cloud"... The Craft respects agency. Occams razor was put to good use, but eventually we face the fact our progress is none other than self-selection. No blame, no excuse. A man taking responsibilty for his growth has reached fulfillment of a task. In our subjective objectivity, where right/wrong is irrelevant, we understand 'it is what it is'. Yes, what you are seeing is real. The limits of character, of intelligence of purpose, the things about men we don't wish to acknowledge but nevertheless know don't make us superior but humble. Where does a man look to find fulfillment and quality of life, his belongings?
