To be forever bound to your obligation, which is your solemn promise, made of your own free will, before the Great Architect of the Universe, as well as your family, friends and brothers signifying your true and heartfelt desire to be forever bound in unity with the fraternity. Freemasons make a heartfelt promise before the Great Architect of the Universe to be forever bound in unity with brother Freemasons. Within Freemasonry, the only thing that sets a Freemason apart from other men is his heartfelt desire, his promise… Which bonds him to the fraternity… Because he is, technically, free to leave the fraternity at any time he so chooses.
