In the past 13 years since the inception of this site, we've NEVER received as much e-mail (cumulatively) about one individual as we have about Mr. Brad Cofield- Ed King-Masonicinfo.com

It may seem that we are being harsh to this individual, but only because everything he stands for flies in the face of our sacred traditions.

Let's face it, the 1613 Nation is not a "traditional" Masonic order, nor do we claim to be. There are many in the Masonic "community" at large who do not appreciate this one bit. The truth is though, really, what do they expect? We've never advertised ourselves as what is commonly available on main street. That isn't what our objective was.

Personally, I'm not much of a "black and white" thinker. There are very few circumstances that I run into where the answer is either A or B with no other possible alternative. For me, this is not only one of life's greater challenges, but it is also one of it's greatest joys. Finding that something that you have looked at, read or experienced can still have elements that are totally new to you, even though you thought yourself so familiar.

In my Masonic journey this constant reinvention happens on a continual basis. New challenges arise and new solutions formed. Old Rites and rituals reveal a whole new electric effect. Someone I thought I pretty much new everything about suddenly surprises me in some fantastic way.

Of course, a Masonic journey just like any other has it's good and it's bad fantastic elements. The 1613 is not immune to this. There have been some that for whatever reason joined the Nation only to leave feeling worse for the experience. Part of me does feel bad bout these types of situations but also I realize that this too, is part of those individuals unique path. Self determination is a beautiful thing, but it isn't always easy to encourage it in others. I have to always remember to let myself help them, even those who wish the Nation and myself harm, be who they need to be.

The universe needs polarity. The Nation too needs it's adversary, or else it's hyper fluid kinetic form cannot exist on a level needed to make worldwide change. I'm not saying that it's easy to read some of these attacks against us. I am saying though that they need to be there. If we are to deny those who hate the ability to do so, then we are nothing more than the oppressors of movement that the Nation was founded to fight against.

A liquid cannot be compressed. Those of static mindsets will not be changed via our positions. The Manifesto will not have a voice among those who choose to not hear it. All of this my Brothers is OK, it is as it should be. Our work will continue and through our challenges we all become stronger.

It is my hope for all of you that you are happy. Transmutation and remanifestation are wonderful things but they are also a ton of hard work. You may not feel instant gratification but there is not second put into any of this that is ever wasted. You are all loved and appreciated. The journey always begins with a step and project with a vision. We just need to step back sometimes and remind ourselves of the simple things.
