Excerpt from the OSHO Zen Tarot Card IX 'Aloneness'
"When there is no ‘significant other&rsquo in our lives we can either be lonely, or enjoy the freedom that solitude brings. When we find no support among others for our deeply felt truths, we can either feel isolated and bitter, or celebrate the fact that our vision is strong enough even to survive the powerful human need for the approval of family, friends or colleagues." Osho
Back Cover Text of the Osho Zen Tarot:
The Osho Zen Tarot focuses 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 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 about what is happening in our own innermost hearts.The images on the cards are thoroughly contemporary; medieval symbols have been discarded and replaced with modern pictures that even the inexperienced user will be able to relate to. The conditions and states of mind portrayed by the cards are all shown as essentially transitional and transformative.
