The Hanged Man,Thumbs up or thumbs down
I think controversy is a good thing. Without being challenged in ones thinking we end up only considering the position, which is easiest and most conventional. Freemasons are free thinkers first and foremost. I wonder if when Jesus stood at the steps and the people chose Barabas instead of him to be set free, a violent man over a passifist, if part of him was greatly saddened by the rejection. In the Tarot, the hanged man is the Significator of the body, as the Hierophant is the Significator of the Mind. The essence...the direction, the Way. To sacrifice that which is valued in the physical world, like the approval of ones peers.
