The biggest "Secret" behind Freemasonry is clearly set forth:
That we are all equally ensouled Sons of God and that only within yourself will you ever find the great wellspring of true divinity. Of course this was Jesus's message before Paul and Constantine religio-politicized it. The reason why this secret is so terrifying is that it rips the power from all dogmatic priesthoods and makes every man his own fully empowered high priest! This also, as DuQuette points out, makes him a magician, and THAT is even more terrifying (to "true believers"). DuQuette relates this historically to the Age of Enlightment and the rise of science and reason. The history of Freemasonry reveals that it was originally concieved by such men as Sir Francis Bacon, Elias Ashmole and others of like mind in the early 1700s. Unfortunately the Royal Academy in England insisted on veiling the Great Secret, and the true meaning of The Lost Word in order to please the Church of England. It has taken us 300 years to finally part this veil--and the parting of the veil comes at the right time. Only Freemasonry has the Secret Key to stop Christians, Jews and Muslims from killing each other. However, before the "true believers" descend on us to burn us at the stake as sorcerers, we should mention that guidelines were submitted four years ago to Grand Lodge of California suggesting that no magical operations be permitted on Masonic property, or in any connection with Masonic activity. There may be Masonic Magicians but Freemasonry doesn't practice Magick.
And that isn't just my opinion. Ill. Bro. Albert Pike said the same thing many years ago.

author: The Book of Solomon's Magick
I am a Freemason, and in my new book, "The Key to Solomon's Key", I share the reasons I believe that the secret of the Templars has, for the last three hundred years, been quietly revealed to those who have eyes to see in the symbols and ceremonies of Freemasonry. I am also a ceremonial magician, and as such it is clear to me that the traditions of Magic and Masonry meld in the person of Solomon, the legendary Magician-King of Israel, and the archetypal centerpiece of both Masonic lore, and the rituals of ceremonial Magic.
Is Solomon's story true? Or do myth and tradition hold the key that unlocks mysteries of human consciousness infinitely more astounding than history?
Perhaps the purpose of Masonry's veneration of Solomon is not to advance an alternate view of history, but to present, however subtly, the archetype of the future human being - men and women who truly possess Solomon's Key - the power to master our own demons and redirect their destructive energy to build the Temple of our own evolving soul. -- Lon Milo DuQuette
The book provides enough for individuals who are interested to try to build their own spirit summoning rituals, along with information from some traditional manuals of the subject.
The sections discussing religion are interesting as well.
