So how does this apply to tarot?
Simple, if time is a construct, and all things a construct, and we have the faculties of a limitless collective universal force... then really...
what's even a tarot card, what's even a question that is unanswerable?.. But entertaining the thought of the program here.... We'll say there is a
clear pattern of progression of the soul/ construct's experience... It doesn't matter how you shuffle the cards, the right card is already there,
because everything is as it should be, following a pattern of underlying perfection, I call it beauty, life is art.
Observe the synchronicities, watch how things line up in what seem like a scary and program-esque (I made that word up) way. For example, you think
you wish you had a tarot deck, that eventually manifests so that you acquire one randomly (Law of
, or rather nature of thoughts and intent). I like the one "Energy flows where attention goes"
. I like to think of our
"physical" world like a slow lucid dream
... things still manifest but they take more "energy" so it is perceived to manifest "slower". A
question, an intent, a thought finds a way to sculpt our reality, which explains "co-incidence". You have the intention to acquire an answer
through cards as a medium, and it manifests. Kind of a funny thought... that your every action seems like a code, a pattern, or universal dance I
call it. We're always flowing, I always seem to "co-incidentally" run in to people I know in a city of nearly 3 million, the day after thinking
about how I had not seen them in a while. The nature of things just seem so subliminal from a certain level... your shuffling of cards, all precise,
all perfect, all charted in the program.
However, to me the real power in the tarot or any form of divination, is that you can become aware of and externalize your intuition, so the ego-mind
doesn't deny it. The ego thinks its just the cards or mere co-incidence. You shuffled those cards in the way they were meant to because the
observer already knew your question, it formulated the events leading up to "your" question.
The artistry or whatever symbolism is there, the set definitions are there as a base, again... the observer or higher-self as I call it, communicates
to "us" all the time, and by giving it a tool of symbols it can effectively transmit a message, but the real message lies in the intuitive
interpretations of the cards... sort of like the observer explaining to itself why it picked those cards to explain the answer.
Divination, there you have it.
I don't aim to preach, just introduce a different perspective because it's in my NATURE to want to find truth. I had an "experience" lately that
explained to me why we should all try to bring truth to each other, and what I basically got from this experience in clear words in my mind were
"Through your quest for truth, healing and purposeful living, there might come a time where you transcend your definition of identity and realize
that the world's many problems are actually your own." A very humbling experience, it re-enforces this need to bring truth and healing to the
So the important thing to me here is co-operation. If we are part of a program yet all of the same essence, the same observer, then our interests at
some level are mutual, and our boundaries are simple patterns and we, experiencing patterns in rich diversities have much to exchange with each other,
to adapt our patterns, to change our sense of identity. And perhaps a mutual quality within us that thrives for purposeful living and the desire to
end suffering through "psychological healing" and expanded self-awareness.
I think the buddha was on to something, bring truth to all, end suffering for all, for the SELF, that if you should realize yourself to be
transcendent of the program, that you will love all as you would yourself, for you would treat others as you would treat yourself. Just to throw it
in here, I find it interesting that the color of the Heart Chakra
is GREEN, and it's associated
with love and growth, and that much of nature is green..and beyond that, the Heart Chakra is considered the balancing point, and for some reason
science places the color green in the middle of the EM spectrum.. It's interesting don't you think? But there's plenty of threads on the "love
movement", I'm trying to make a bridge here to chart how that sense of universal unity could be derived.
I'm starting to understand why we try to protect ourselves from opening up to new possiblities. With wisdom comes responsibility.. for once you know
better, there is no excuse to do so otherwise. The playful children find themselves in the uncomfortable role of the adult and the easy and enjoyable
distractions start to look less appealing. There comes a point where we might experience a period of great depression, apathy or anger towards the
world and then accompanied by a realization that we want our suffering to end and that only constructive thoughts and actions have constructive
results, (instead of distracting oneself: TV, alcohol every day etc.). In other words.. we want to make our life better, how far will we go to ease
our suffering? How brave are we to challenge ourselves, how ready are we?
I'll tell you one thing, I am obsessed with making sense of things and through my search I have found that happiness and purposeful existence is a
level, a degree, not a state.. So I don't say... "Are you happy?", I say "How happy are you?" There are multiple benefits of self-exploration.
I understand what they mean by psychic "awareness", as I feel more alive on all levels. I used to be one angry individual, but now I'm finding the
word anger to be outgrowing its roots, rationalization and attachment to me. As the buddhists say "Don't hate the stick that beats you".. only the
stick is the person, and one beating you is delusions working through them, that the more one is trapped in these delusions, such as anger, the
further they get from the truth of what caused the anger and become irrational and a slave to the delusion, and that all slaves, all who suffer are
deserving of compassion.
I've dramatically changed my life, I have no doubt anyone else can do the same. I don't see the identity, I see the underlying posibilties. All life
is beautiful, all are equal in my eyes and I hope this is one step towards self-awareness for you.
It never hurts to have an open mind, and don't expect that this post has all the answers... but I sure as hell bet we ALL have the answers... if you
catch my drift.
When I write things like these, there is NO any kind of like, analytical thought. As soon as I start typing, I don't stop to analyze, it's just a
continuous stream and I wanted to mention that. I often learn quite a bit when I write, so I often wonder... "How can I write about things I never
knew?".. and it re-enforces this perspective that it is in our capability to tap into an infinite well of information and that self-transformation
If the top of your head is burning or your forehead is swelling from reading this, chakra meditation might interest you.
Call me whatever you want, put me in a box, but I love you man.
haha..If you told me I had to go back to the mindset and personal problems I had
even a few years ago, I'd probably go back kicking and screaming.
The world we have constructed with all its problems and wonders, what is it but a reflection of how well we know ourselves? How we define ourselves
effects our actions. Aspire to change for the better, wise up, and we might just make the world a better place, but if not, I guarantee yours will
