|The Fool - New beginnings will now be presented -
fresh challenges. Let your mistakes be your lessons - "look before
you leap". Your choice will affect your life path and others will
effect this choice. Consider all the aspects as well as the consequences
to yourself. Once you have made your choice you will see your new goals
clearly, a strength of purpose will be revealed and you will overcome any
fear that exists. Hard work, honesty and ethics are your keys - use your
wisdom and opinions in practical ways and trust that marriage and
relationships will provide a firm base or foundation. The Fools esoteric
name is LOVE - he represents "good" and teaches the
"know-how" of passing from intellectuality, which is moved by
the desire for knowledge - to a higher knowledge based on love.
"Transformation" - the "ego" is no longer the author of the "act" but its receiver, through the decision to sacrifice the intellect to spirituality so that it grows and develops. The human endeavor is united with the action of grace from above - love aimed at universal salvation through the transformation of mankind and Nature.
The souls journey begins with the separation and opposition of the spiritual and intellectual elements. This advances to a kind of "peaceful coexistence" which soon becomes cooperation. This cooperation, having proven to be fruitful - becomes a complete fusion of these two elements. Finally logic becomes transformed from "formal" logic into "moral" logic, operating with the "value of values" - LOVE. Your prayer is never in vain or without effect.
Leap into this new phase of life - return to the "child" within you, be open to new experiences - be innocent and spontaneous, curious and playful. You are not here to cry about the miseries of the human condition, but to change them when they are not to your liking. Trust in the Universe, have faith that the Universe will take care of you - trust your Creator. Your spirit desires to break free of this boredom and take some risks. You are a Being not just a "body" - unlimited by nature. Through the joy, strength and vitality that is within you, begin to create your spirit faithfully and beautifully in flesh. Trust in your rightness and your completely original existence in this time and space. You were born into the flesh to materialize as best you can the great spontaneity of your nature, your genius is found in your childhood passions - believe that good results will come from the work done in your mind and trust that if you do the work - you can rest assured of the results.
Launch into your new adventure totally unafraid of the consequences - write your script and create your own play - be joyous now, for the possibilities are boundless. Mentally - be inquisitive. Emotionally - express your feelings without reserve. Physically - have fun with life. Spiritually - search for truth and seek to grow. "Doubt" is more than just a psychological state of indecision - it is your souls temporary residence between the physical and the spiritual. It is the question "to live or not to live" - "to be or not to be". When you experience fear - keep going - you are never alone and your journey will result in knowledge, peace and liberation as you experience joy and adventure and learn to see through the illusions. The Fool - is what the world sees when they look upon someone who is truly enlightened - he does not follow their rules or share their weaknesses, so he appears to be a fool. The World represents the same enlightened person viewed from inside, by himself. Nature is always in harmony with the spirit who acts from instinct. Your passions have been raised to a higher level. You carry your experiences with you, but they no longer control you. Your higher instinct fills and transforms all experiences - do not censure your thoughts - be open-minded and play with your ideas. You carry your wand of power so casually now that the world hardly notices it and the spirit force is always available to you, for you are not consciously trying to direct it. LOVE urges you to keep going, rather than settling for what you have already achieved. LOVE urges you on in spite of your fears and allows you to move without thought, to hold onto your faith and optimism and have faith in yourself and life. Remain practical when the burdens become too heavy - follow your instincts and feelings and allow yourself to flow gracefully with life. Experience life from moment to moment and stop trying to "plan everything out" - expect a miracle.
Here is the immortal mortal, invincibility. The magician has learned all his lessons. Complete lack of fear, through innate knowledge of death. Understanding of death, both as illusion and hard reality, that at birth we begin to die and at death we begin to live. Here is complete balance, centered awareness. Transcendent of space/time. To earthly knowledge has been added much of the knowledge beyond the veil and the ability to see beyond earthly duality while living in it. The ultimate optimist, appears very lucky to onlookers and is indeed charmed. There is much good humor in all things. Unmitigated joy, walking on air as here is the ability to see the positive lesson inherent in any duality with man's will. The fool in knowing that he knows, also knows what he does not know. His reaction is "Oh, but of course!" When opposites reveal themselves to be but two sides of the one - the same, whenever we discover the surprise in what was before so hard to see - there is a relief, a lightening of the spirit that comes with the enlightening of the mind.
