Any order/gang/männerbund has to start with at least two people willing to be themselves a unity of thought & action. This is the basis of any meaningful spiritual path of a individual person as well as of a group. Such men are few and far between these days. And you never know if you yourself have the material until you put yourself to the test in critical situations. This is the essence. Pushing yourself and each other and testing it. There is no escape from between the hammer and anvil for those who want to rise above themselves and the masses. And ultimately we need to face the question of our willingness to give everything for our spiritual path. You don't just decide to become brave one day. You build it up through hard work, discipline and by breaking and reforging yourself. But no matter how large or small scale we think, we must always have our (mind's) eye on the northern horizon. That's the only way forward, through our willingness to sacrifice ourself to ourself. High ambitions are not a problem if we are willing to do what it takes. But right there usually lies a major challenge for each of us. And as a consolation, it has never been any different.
