TAROT WISDOM

I decided to pick a card for the day for the people of the interweb.
Hope you can get some wisdom out of it.

From the Osho Zen Tarot Deck.

The woman in this picture is living in a gray landscape, full of unreal, cut-out clouds. Through the window frame she can see colors and light and aliveness, and although she would like to move through the frame–as we can see by the rainbow colors appearing in her garment–she can’t quite manage to do it. There is still too much ‘what-if?’ activity in her mind.

Tomorrow never comes, they say, but no matter how often it is said, it seems that most of us tend to forget the truth of it. In fact, the one and only result of postponing things is a dull and depressing feeling of incompletion and ‘stuck-ness’ today. The relief and expansiveness you will feel once you put aside all the dithering thoughts that are preventing you from acting now will make you wonder why you ever waited so long.

Postponement is simply stupid. Tomorrow you will also have to decide, so why not today? And do you think that tomorrow you will be wiser than today? Do you think that tomorrow you will be livelier than today? Do you think that tomorrow you will be younger than today, fresher than today?
Tomorrow you will be older, your courage will be less; tomorrow you will be more experienced, your cunningness will be more; tomorrow death will come closer–you will start wavering and being more afraid.

Never postpone for the tomorrow. And who knows? Tomorrow may come or may not come. If you have to decide you have to decide right now.

Dr. Vogel, the dentist, finished his examination on a pretty young patient. “Miss Baseman,” he said, “I’m afraid I’m going to have to pull out your wisdom teeth!”
“Oh, my!” exclaimed the girl. “I’d rather have a baby!” “Well,” said Dr. Vogel, “could you make up your mind so that I can adjust the chair?”
Make up your mind. Don’t go on postponing infinitely.
