Journey on the Level
5-star rating on Amazon.com!
Our life journey, an experience full of adventure and mystery, is one that we all travel through the sands of time. From time immemorial, countless philosophers have sought the essence of our humanity, and the most devout religious practitioners have dedicated their lives to the search of Truth. But for those of us with other professions who lead modest lives in our communities, how can the pursuit of the deepest philosophical questions help us become better people and contribute to a better world? How can introspection and contemplation bring tangible rewards to our daily lives? “Journey on the Level” uses the symbols and non-sectarian traditions of Freemasonry, a popular and historical civic organization, as a framework to discuss the essence of our humanity, regardless of race, religion, culture, or social status. Written in easily-accessible language, complete with examples from daily life, it takes us on a journey to learn the greatest lessons that life has to offer. With practical ideas communicated through analogies and anecdotes, we emerge from this journey with a new perspective that inspires us to look at everyday experiences in a different and more meaningful way, no matter the circumstances. Life-changing wisdom is all around us. It is simply up to us to discover it. Each moment is valuable. Each second is to be cherished. Each day is a gift. To order, please click here.
We the Peoples: The Bus, The Journey, The Lessons
In the spring of 2002, high school students from North America and Europe were selected to participate in the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth. Their mission was to explore the essence of international dialogue and confront the new era of globalization through first-hand experience. This was no ordinary youth program. On July 11th, these thirty student delegates embarked upon a journey that would greatly challenge their existing worldview, which until that time, was shaped only by their familiar, local surroundings. Cultures that for centuries remained oceans apart, embodied by these fledgling delegates, lived on a bus together for twelve days. These students were forced to reconcile their differences, yet the flames of prejudice and division would test their resolve. Could these innocent youth face the challenges that have plagued humanity since the dawn of civilization and learn one of the most valuable lessons known to mankind? This is their story.
