Infinite, you Juggalo you, yes, it's a Masonic joke, and I am very pleased to hear that you will be joining us when you reach the full age of 21.
The joke only makes sense to people who use certain versions of the ritual, but essentially if one is asked to "control one's passions," it means
to not get angry, to stop being lustful, greedy, or gluttonous, etc.
Freeworld, you can always go back to Lodge, provided you have not been suspended for non-payment of dues. Even if you have been suspended, it's not
a big deal, you generally just have to make up your last two years of dues with, as you say, the treasurer, and I think you have to get voted back in
(never a problem, I assure you).
