Magic of the Tarot a key to the ageless wisdom

Why does the Tarot work?
To answer this question we must first discuss some of the principles of consciousness:
1.Causation is always internal. No matter how it may appear at times, we create
our own world, built according to our mental imagery. If we change our predominant images we will change our world.
2.A clear mental image tends to materialize itself as an actual condition or event.
3.A perfect record of all of our experiences is contained in our subconscious mind. Through its link to the Collective Unconsciousness, we have at our disposal an inexhaustible source of knowledge. This "collective" level is a source of the greater part of our intuitions or insights. In many instances, many modern "discoveries" are simply recoveries from it.
4.Subconsciousness will link us to whatever or whoever we need to achieve our goals. All the power you require in order to achieve your potential is yours NOW this very minute
5.The operations of subconsciousness are controllable from the conscious level provided the right means to this end are used

If you read the above in a Terence McKenna voice, it sounds quite cool. Hippy new age bollocks, but quite cool.

I wonder if that'll work for the spambots too?

Hi John
The Tarot has actually been around since around 1200 AD so not that new age.

“We have been to the moon, we have charted the depths of the ocean and the heart of the atom, but we have a fear of looking inward to ourselves because we sense that is where all the contradictions flow together.”
― Terence McKenna

Still bollocks though.

Published by John Techno at 7:53pm on Mon 15th February 2016.

The Tarot may have been around in some form for a while, but I'm pretty sure the "consciousness creates reality" thing only dates back as far as Timothy Leary's first LSD trip.

Wrongfellow
look at the work of Paul Foster Case, Consciousness has been around a while ;-)

John
your opinion is shared by many, It does take balls to look at ourselves honestly.

"It does take balls to look at ourselves honestly."

Yep. I prefer to do it by thinking, though, rather than with some bits of card with (admittedly very pretty) pictures on them.

Published by John Techno at 6:29pm on Tue 16th February 2016.

Hi john
The cards are states of consciousness in symbol form which when concentrated upon evoke universal responses from the mind of man.They are the creation of the greatest masters of the Hermetic sciences and contain the keys to Qabalah, Alchemy, Astrology, and magic.
These pictorial images are those we weave into dreams.They are the symbols of poets, dramatists and novelists, as well as the substance of the visions of seers and prophets.
Thinking in pictures is the fundamental activity of the human mind. We see before we say. Words are but labels for man's visual imagery.

fuckwits

This is my favourite tarot card.

Published by John Techno at 8:06pm on Tue 16th February 2016.

very funny John
I see why it is your favourite card
Regardless of its origins, the term 'fuckwit' has now become a newsgroup term for someone who repeatedly and consistantly proves themselves totally impervious to clue, 'clue' being defined as knowledge, enlightenment, advice.

Published by kevinpridgeon54 at 8:33pm on Tue 16th February 2016.

I think I love you, Kevin - it's been a while since anyone was genuinely funny on this site.

"has now become a newsgroup term"

Your form of language dates you.

Do you remember the Empire of Meow?

For anyone who feels an inner urge to attend this meeting and begin the great adventure, a word to the wise. The little ego that rules your life will try to find many ways to prevent you from attending, be mindful of the "you cant find a baby sitter , your too tired, too busy , its too early , too late , its for loonies, hippies or anyone other than me". This is all normal and even if you do not attend this event , if you have felt that inner urge another event or person will enter your life when you are ready to take that first step on the path.

I'm both a loonie and a hippy.

Published by John Techno at 7:12pm on Sat 20th February 2016.

For me it's both too early and too late.

Damn. It seems we'll both have to fall back on the "can't find a babysitter" excuse.

Published by Wrongfellow at 7:51pm on Sat 20th February 2016.

You just haven't felt the inner urge yet, maaaaaaaaan.

I wonder if those "great masters" of the "hermetic sciences" knew the difference between "your" and "you're"?

Published by John Techno at 8:01pm on Sat 20th February 2016.

Oh, I have, when I was about sixteen.

I grew out of it.

Published by Wrongfellow at 8:04pm on Sat 20th February 2016.

Was that when you started reading books about science, and stopped having an open mind?

you Guys
Your post's are so awesome

We couldn't have done it without your otherworldly inspiration, Kevin! ;)

maybe Admin can explain how someone can post an event a couple of weeks before it says they joined WAN? something doesn't add up.

1200ad?

your cards tell you that ?

It does indeed appear that kevinpridgeon54 joined on the same day he last visited, the 21st.

It's probably something else that got overlooked in last year's move. I'll take a closer look at some point.

Kevin, if you're reading, can you log in and post something else? It doesn't matter what. I'd like to see how your profile page changes.

Only 23 days to go
Magic of the Tarot
7.30 pm Trumpington Village Hall. Free parking
True magic is the magic of the self. You and I know we are extremely complicated. We are mystified about ourselves. We can look outward and classify everything,saying "that's a horse, a cow, a tree". But when it comes to us we are not so sure.
It appears that whoever created us decided to make us the most baffling puzzle in the universe.This course in the Tarot is presented as an attempt to introduce you to some hidden parts of yourself.

We are the fool
The Fool enjoys the universe of things but is not a thing itself, as Implied by its number zero. The Fool has its root in the world of super consciousness or the indescribable Limitless light. We must learn to see with the eye of the inner self which is unaffected by our world of appearances and change, being rooted in the superconscious. We have to rely on the inner instruction from the Immortal self to find out what is real, the ordinary phenomenal world cannot supply this.
The whole of the phenomenal universe hangs upon this something indescribable, the active principle of creation prior to manifestation. We are all an expression of this Limitless light, it is the root of our being, it is not bound by anything but is the centre around which all experiences occur.
The Fool is pure being or Super consciousness, the eternal immortal self, totally free, immaculate creative energy. However as our spirit becomes taken up with the Ten Thousand Things of this world, we begin to forget who we are. The Tarot is a tool to bring us back to remembering our inner self the Fool.
The fool is dancing above and between all 21 cards of the Tableau this makes it the most important key in the entire Pack. Its symbolism is a revelation to the wise of this indescribable limitless light. Our salvation is that the inner self in us has its root in this limitless light also. The fool exists within all of us right here and now.
