Hi, I’m Matt Gallagher and I’ve been a Freemason since 2010, and I’ve got one, pretty good talent; making connections. Not the elbow rubbing kind, but philosophical patterns. Connecting the vague, and the mysterious, and the seemingly meaningless to each other, in a way that reveals a beautiful blueprint for our lives, and maybe even revealing a grand plan left to us in pieces by our long forgotten fore-bearers.
Or maybe I’m just making it all up. Who knows? That’s the funny thing about philosophy and symbolism. It doesn’t really matter if it’s truth or fiction. It all works to the same effect if it connects with your heart, and makes sense to your head. That’s what I do. I make the cryptic and arcane mysteries of masonry make sense to people.
I’ve been a longtime masonic blogger, and I’ve even written a few posts that have been passed around lodges all across the country. But now I’m writing a book titled Practical Freemasonry, and it is exactly that. How to apply masonic concepts to your own life in a practical, and doable way, for anyone to understand, but on a very deep level.
