The world is filled with organizations that are filled with members. One cannot be held accountable for all, and all cannot blame one. The only blame should be not seeing within in a body, but only knowing them for the cover.

What the eyes see can be created, but what the soul can see and truly shows is the man, woman, or child that stands before you. Words and actions will show the true spirit within.

History continues to tell stories of the past that isn't in a book, but from a spirit passing through.

PHOENIX ARIZONA - Cemetery in Tempe, Arizona were an abundance of Freemasons were buried. The cemetery is called the Tempe Butte cemetery since 1888. Confederates, people killed by hangings and shootings, and even runaway horses were buried in this cemetery.

All around Freemason, Illuminati, new world order symbols could be found.


Thomas Wildey (1782--1861) was the founder of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) in North America. He was born in London, England, in 1782. He was left an orphan five years later - and the IOOF pledge to "Educate the Orphan" sprang from his personal childhood experiences.

At the age of 14, Wildey went to live with an uncle. After he had 9 years of schooling, he became an apprentice to a maker of coach springs. He joined the British Oddfellows in 1804.

When Wildey emigrated to America in 1817, the British were still unpopular in the States because of the War of 1812. In that year Baltimore was suffering both a yellow fever epidemic and mass unemployment.

An outgoing personality, Wildey missed companionship and advertised in the newspaper to determine if there were any other Odd Fellows in Baltimore; he requested them to meet him at the Seven Stars Inn.

On April 26, 1819, Wildey and the four men who responded to the advertisement, John Welch, John Duncan, John Cheatam, and Richard Rushworth, formed the Independent Order of Odd Fellows in North America, dedicating the Order to achieve philanthropic goals.

Other Englishmen who were Odd Fellows had grouped in the states along the Eastern Seaboard, and Wildey gathered them all into the newly formed fraternity.

He traveled widely to set up lodges in the most recently settled parts of the country.

At the time of his death in 1861, there were more than 200,000 members of the IOOF in 42 states. In the late 19th century and early 20th century the IOOF became the largest Fraternal Order in North America with more than two million members.


He first joined the Independent Order of Odd Fellows in 1840 then had in the interim joined a Masonic Lodge and became extremely active in the affairs of the organization, being elected Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite's Southern Jurisdiction in 1859.

He remained Sovereign Grand Commander for the remainder of his life (a total of thirty-two years), devoting a large amount of his time to developing the rituals of the order.

Waiting for truth and history to make a difference.

Waiting for the world to change...for the better!

No Justice...No Peace...

Friendship/Love/Trust/Respect/Unity for all living things...

Namaste
