  • The Lodge Vision

    No. 123 F. & A. M. in Healdsburg California is a sanctuary for all good men who desire to be even better than they are now. A place free of religion and politics yet fortified with spiritual pursuit and diplomacy. It is not a charity, a self help group, a sobriety club, or a gentlemen's lounge. No. 123 is a modern manifestation of the oldest mystery school tradition......Erected through the gentle Craft of Freemasonry. It is not puffed up. Our casual flare and humorous fellowship outside the Lodge is rivalled only by our positively strict observance of ritual and masonic restoration. We are elite, but not elitists!
  • "Every candidate for the Mysteries of Masonry, at the proper time and in the appropriate manner, should be taught the truth that the *rite of Initiation* means much more than a formal ceremonial progress through the Degrees. In fact, one may receive the entire work, conferred under the most favorable circumstances, and by competent officers, and yet not perceive the true Masonic *light,* which the symbols and allegories are designed to conceal, as well as to reveal. *Initiation* is to be attained only after real labor, deep study, profound meditation, extensive research and a constant practice of those virtues which will open a true path to moral, intellectual, and spiritual illumination. "Masonry does not expound the truths concealed in her emblems. It displays the symbols and may give a hint here and there concerning some characteristic of its several meanings, but it must remain for the Neophite to search out for himself the more hidden significations."
