Obviously you can ask the tarot what you like, although it is in fact a vehicle for exposing what you already know. Any card drawn in response to an issue is a direct reflection of what you are sometimes unable or unwilling to recognize at this time. And yet it is only through recognition (without judging as right or wrong) from a detached perspec-tive that you can begin to fully experience your height and depth — all the colors of our rainbow being.
Remember to stay in the as you turn the cards over, allowing your inner responses to clarify your outer issues.
As you will experience, the images of the Osho Zen Tarot are alive. Their impact is undeniable, for they speak to us in a language that our deeper selves recognize. They awaken understanding. They provoke clarity.
Be as silent and focused as possible when you are using this deck. The more you are able to perceive the process as a gift for your individual growth, the more meaningful the messages will be for you.
Throughout the centuries, the mystics and sages have used parables and stories to communicate their insights. They have understood that profound truths baldly stated often seem abstract and unattainable. But when these same truths are wrapped in a story they can slip more easily into the human heart, to be absorbed and reflected in our daily lives.
The Osho Transformation Tarot is a collection of timeless parables and teaching stories from the world’s great wisdom traditions, as told by the contemporary mystic Osho. These stories -- from Zen or Sufism, from the lives of Jesus, Buddha, or Lao Tzu -- are packaged as a set of cards with accompanying booklet. They are designed to be used as an inspiration and guide to the dilemmas and opportunities of everyday life.
Users of the deck can choose a card for the day and read the accompanying story as a theme for contemplation, or to gain insight into a specific question. Or, they can choose from a variety of simple layouts provided to explore the dynamics of a relationship or to investigate the underlying issues that are contributing to a significant life problem. The emphasis of the deck is not on prophecy or divination -- rather, it directs the user to the potential for transformation and renewal that is hidden in every aspect of daily life, if we only know where to look for it.
These techniques will not mention any religious ritual. No temple is needed, you are quite enough of a temple yourself. You are the lab; the whole experiment is to go on within you. This is not religion, this is science. No belief is needed. Only a daringness to experiment is enough; courage to experiment is enough. These 112 methods are for the whole of humanity-for all the ages that have passed, and for all the ages that have yet to come. I will go on describing each method from as many angles as possible. If you feel any affinity with it, play with it for three days. If you feel that it fits, that something clicks in you, continue it for three months. Life is a miracle. If you have not known its mystery, that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it.″ -- Osho
