I just wanted to thank you for coming to speak to the class on Thursday. Your presentation was excellent and I learned some things myself which is great. In fact, the points that you raised regarding the problems spiritualism presents for organized religion were excellent and I am going to follow up with the class on those. They are broadly applicable to the western metaphysical tradition. I have no doubt that I will refer back to your talk many times before the course is through. Thanks again!"

Soul's Journey to Realization
What many new to Tarot are surprised to learn is that the
Tarot is comprised of a series of pictures which graphically
depict and explain our Soul's journey to realization, knowledge
and wisdom. Most of us after a few decades of experience suspect
that our Soul is brought by spirit to embodiment here on the
earth plane for a reason. Surely this isn't just an abysmally
bad cosmic joke?
There must be something that embodiment reveals that our soul
is unable to grasp any other way? In form we experience contrariness,
selfishness, limitation, and suffering. We experience desire,
will and decision. In spiritual terms this gets translated
into force, discrimination, and magnetism. If we didn't have
an opportunity to experience the consequences of our soul-force
we wouldn't perceive the light of right purpose and co-operation.
Dreams & Visions
The Tarot is rich with teachings about these spiritual laws.
Be careful what you wish for! Your desires will make up the
bars of your prisons! Pay attention to all your perceptions
especially those that come to you through your spiritual perceptions
such as dreams and visions. That's why its been well documented
that an indepth study of the Tarot will open these special
doors of spiritual perception. And why as a divination tool
it holds a special power in lighting the path that you have
found yourself on in the present and the path ahead.
