FREEMASONRY
WHAT IS A FREEMASON?

In the First Degree, W.L. Wilmshurst advocated that the preparation of the Candidate for Initiation should include his answering three questions:
  1. What is your view of the purpose of human life and the nature of human destiny?
  2. What is your object in seeking to be initiated?
  3. What may the Craft hope to receive from you in return for what you expect to receive from it?
He went on to compare the three Degrees of Craft Masonry to the three stages of philosophical mysticism:
  1. Purification
  2. Illumination - Education
  3. Perfection - Union
