Book: Osho Zen Tarot The Transcendental Game Of Zen by Osho

The Osho Zen Tarot is a beautiful and serene, not your usual traditional tarot cards. It speaks to your inner self, tuning in to your most sensitive and passionate self.

I chose three of my favorite cards in this tarot deck:

1. The No-thingness card - totally black card. The 176 page book describes it as - because the nothing is not just nothing-it is all! It is vibrant with all possiblities, etc.....
2, Slowing down - a large tortoise wading through the mud and weeds - we are like the tortoise, we carry our home with us, wherever we go. There is no need to hurry, to let go of expectations you've had about yourself or other people. The last paragraph of the commentary is the keyword - The essence is at ease. Do whatsoever you are doing, but at the deepest core remain at ease, cool, calm and centered. Slowing down is so beautifully said-I cannot say it more graciously!
3. Existence - One of the Major Arcana card that comes after the Fool. A picture of the back of a naked - long hair woman sitting on a lotus leaf of perfection. I love the way the book describes this No.1 Major Arcana card - you are not accidental. Existence needs you. Quoting the last sentence " Once you are clean and clear, you can see tremendous love falling on you in all dimensions."

When life seems to be full of doubt and uncertainty we tend to look for a source of inspiration: what will happen in the future? What about my health, the children? What will happen if I make this decision and not that one? This is how the traditional tarot is often used, to satisfy a longing to know about the past and future. This Osho Zen Tarot focuses instead on gaining an Understanding of the here and now. It is a System Based on the wisdom of Zen, a wisdom that says events in the outer world simply reflect in the outer world simply reflect our own thoughts and feelings, even though we ourselves might be unclear about what those thoughts and feelings are. So it helps us to turn our attention away from outside events so we can find a new clarity of understanding in our innermost hearts. The conditions and states of mind portrayed by the contemporary images on the cards are all shown as being essentially transitional and transformative. The text in the accompanying book helps to interpret and understand the images in the simple, straightforward and down to earth language of Zen.

This is very calming, it speaks directly into your heart and soul and gives "one" peace and serenity within. You will learn to slow down and become one with Zen!
