Nowadays, more than ever before, we have a clear picture of the world in which we live. Although it is constantly changing and every day, changed, emerges before our eyes, that world is clearly divided into the world of Light and the world of Darkness. The Grand Lodge of Serbia is determined to stay where it has always been – in the world of Light.
One such Brotherhood is doing everything to invest even more effort in expanding the boundaries of the world of Light, firmly treading the Path that has long been marked and illuminated for us. Lodges, which work under the protection of the Grand Lodge of Serbia, as well as all their members, first allow themselves, and then bravely and courageously, with even bigger steps, step forward, faithful to the Light.
The highest goal of the Grand Lodge of Serbia is the creation and development of a very advanced and enlightened society, in which all individuals will live in Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.
The Liberty, as the highest goal of the Grand Lodge of Serbia, primarily refers to the freedom of each individual, but also especially to the freedom of the Humanity as a whole. In the society that our goal is to create and build, all its members are fully aware of all their immensely great obligations and duties, which we have towards our ancestors, towards our the closest ones, towards ourselves and towards our future. All of us together, at all times, must protect our hard-earned Liberty, which has been paid for with lives and great sacrifices, so that we are not forced to pay it again by our own or by the victims and lives of our future ones.
The Equality, as the highest goal of the Grand Lodge of Serbia, refers to the inviolable rights of the Human, which he received from the Supreme Creator of All Worlds, to live as a Human in a world of equal opportunities. In the society that our goal is to create and build, all its members are focused on increasing their knowledge and education, especially spiritual, and the exclusive use of their own abilities and skills in order to develop a community in which they will be rewarded according to the amount and the value of their work, effort and commitment, not seeking, expecting, or demanding any undeserved reward or privilege, and especially not help from anyone or anything from the world of Darkness.
The Fraternity, as the highest goal of the Grand Lodge of Serbia, refers to the way of life in the world of Light, whose borders we expand, strengthen and protect. In the society that our goal is to create and build, all its members are united, in cooperation, in building an environment in which, as an integral part of a progressive and enlightened community, they will truly feel like brothers, living life to the fullest, with every breath imbued with Unconditional Love.
In the society of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity built in this way, which we strive for, the feeling of belonging is deeply rooted in every individual who lives in it. Such a rooted feeling does not need any oaths, nor superfluous and empty words. Therefore, all those individuals, groups of people and organizations, whether domestic or foreign, whose actions we recognize as part of such pure aspirations, we will accept with open arms. They are our Brothers, no matter what nation or religion they belong to and no matter what part of the world they come from. The Grand Lodge of Serbia is always open for cooperation, exclusively as an equal participant in the upliftment of the Construction, which is in the interest of that part of Humanity that strives for Light.
