Order of Mechanics, Friendly Society

What is Mechanism?
 
    From time immemorial and through all ages and lands, there has existed a fundamental belief that an inner or divine degree of knowledge may be acquired or revealed to human beings under certain conditions. This knowledge is invariably related to the nature and destiny of the soul of an individual and its relationship to a Deity. This is a fundamental principle from which all modern religions sprung, but Mechanism, not being a religion, concerns itself with the nature of the Belief and not its form.

    The secrets of the inner being of an individual and the Divine knowledge that leads to the discovery of our relationship with the Deity are imbued in the "center" or the core of our soul, which is the spirit. The discovery and joyful utilization of this knowledge constitutes "Christ Consciousness." Mechanism strives to teach the attainment of this knowledge and the application of its principles and tenets in our daily lives.

    It is recognized however, that these inner values being of a spiritual nature are incommunicable. They transcend communication by word of mouth or hand, but are capable of manifestation through our way of life, and therefore can be felt and assimilated through the right light radiations, but in the main, can only be attained through personal endeavor.

What are Lodges and Chapters?
 
    Mechanic Lodges (Men) and Chapters (Women) are the basic organizations in Mechanism. They are collectively governed by Grand Lodges for the area in which they reside. A Lodge or Chapter Room is the room where meetings are held and is housed within a Mechanic Temple - symbolically echoing King Solomon's Temple.
 
    The 'Lodge' or 'Chapter' is where Mechanics practice Mechanism, learning moral and ethical values through allegory and symbolic plays, called ritual - defined as a set of actions performed mainly for their symbolic value.
 
    Each Lodge/Chapter consists of a group of individuals who have voluntarily formed themselves into a family; exemplifying all the high ideals and expectations of a well-regulated, closely knit organization. Mechanism teaches one to know oneself. By gaining a full understanding of oneself, one is able to respect and appreciate others, not by material possessions, but by their character and humanity. Thus, there are no economic, social, racial, ethnic or superficial barriers to true friendship and love.
 
    Each group convenes at least once a month and elect their officers annually.
