Travelling (Osho Zen Tarot)
Tarot cards are alive and talking to us all the time. At least, I feel my tarot decks talk to me all the time). I can't tell you how many times I've pulled a tarot card that relates to exactly the situation I'm going through. I used a few different tarot decks - Osho Zen Tarot, Sacred Rebels and Rumi Love by Alana Fairchild. My favourite one is Osho Zen Tarot, as it is downloadable on your iPhone and it will send you a card every day automatically. It is as if Osho is talking to me daily, and the card almost always relates to whatever I'm going through.
In the ancient Vedic Scriptures, there is Philosophy that 'Everything' has a Living Deity within it or behind it, pulling its strings. So it is perhaps unsurprising that Tarot card also has a Living Deity within it.
For instance, yesterday when I just arrived at the Gold Coast airport, about to rent a car to Byron Bay. My iPhone reminds me that I have an Osho Zen Tarot Card for the day. As I opened the app, it says Travelling! (Of course!) This deck seems to have the most incredible psychic ability - I've pulled too many cards from this deck that makes me go like "Oh My Goddess..." Perhaps I use my phone a lot and perhaps my deep connection with Osho that make this deck super telepathic- it almost always know what I'm experiencing and oftentimes provides clear Divine guidance into the situation. If the answers are known to me, then it will just affirm my answer. If I'm unsure about the situation, then it will clarify it for me. Magical.
The tiny figure moving on the path through this beautiful landscape is not concerned about the goal. He or she knows that the journey is the goal, the pilgrimage itself is the sacred place. Each step on the path is important in itself. When this card appears in a reading, it indicates a time of movement and change. It may be a physical movement from one place to the next, or an inner movenemtn from one way of being to another. But wahtever the case, this card promises that the going will be easy and will bring a sense of adventure and growth; there is no need to struggle or plan too much. The Travelling card also reminds us to accept and embrace the new, just as when we travel to another country with a different culture and environment than the one we are accustomed to. This attitude of openness and acceptance invites new friends and experiences into our lives.
Life is a continuity always and always. There is no final destination it is going towards. Just the pilgrimage, just the journey in itself is life, not reaching to some point, no goal -- just dancing and being in pilgrimage, moving joyously, without bothering about any destination. What will you do by getting to a destination? Nobody has asked this, because everybody is trying to have some destination in life. But the implications ... if you really reach the destination of life, then what? Then you will look very embarrassed. Nowhere to go... you have reached to the final destination - and in the journey you have lost everything. You had to lose everything. So standing naked at the final destination, you will look all around like an idiot: what was the point? You were hurrying so hard, and you were worrying so hard, and this is the outcome.
