BEING A MASON

WE ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN OURSELVES

Below you will find short videos of a few Brothers sharing their experience with Freemasonry. 

A Musician

This is a story about a man’s constant desire to uncoil every day stresses through his love of music; how the simple act of writing has the power to recharge his batteries, inspiring him “… to give his wife an extra kiss on the cheek,” as he so genuinely put it in his interview. His home studio is a quiet place he can draw from the stories and experiences of those around him he loves most.

A Tattoo Artist

But not just a tattoo artist, a true artist in every facet of his life. From early days of snowboard designs, to advertising, touring with famous bands, to today – he humbly leaves a mark on the world around him through his work. This story is about growth through creativity and creation, how your mark influences the people around you, and how he’s inspired by the different walks of life that converge in Lodges.

A Seeker

Introspective in nature and genuinely appreciative of the world around him, this brother is a kind person seeking to leave the world a better place. The story of his move from inner city New York to central Massachusetts, the discovery of internal peace through nature and meditation, and the constant effort to give back to his community are covered. He joined Freemasonry to find like-minded brothers to help him accomplish his goals.

What is the typical life of a Mason? It’s a question we get a lot from men who are deciding if they’d like to join the craft. The real answer is there is no “typical” life of a Mason.

Masons come from all walks of life – from corporate CEOs to city bus drivers, from commodities brokers to auto mechanics. What unifies Masons is not where we come from or what we do for a living, but rather what we aspire to be.

Being a Mason is about a father helping his son make better decisions; a business leader striving to bring morality to the workplace; a thoughtful man learning to work through tough issues in his life.

Simply put, its about being the best man you can be.
