Hi PD,

I'm looking forward to reading your book.

My main interest is symbolism and it has led me down many paths. One of those paths
gets rarely mentioned on this message board. There is plenty of "discussion" on religion
with points of view for and against but the topic of mysticism in religion rarely comes up.

What I'm intrigued about is the role that altered states might play in the mystical aspects of the
different main stream religions?

I have many questions that you might be able to answer for me but I will not overload you all
at once.

Thank you for your open thoughts on possible use of acacia in Masonry.
In my research over the years I have encountered many different factions
within Masonry and I'm not always sure how to deal with them.

Best,
Broker
