Eight Of Clouds – Osho Zen Tarot Deck
I. The Explanation of Eight of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot
Sin is one of the most negative emotions we have. If we did something else wrong or went against our conscience, then, of course, we would feel terrible. But letting yourself be overwhelmed with guilt feelings means you have invited a migraine. We are surrounded by persistent clouds of self-doubt and feelings of worthlessness to the point where we cannot see any of the beautiful and joyful surroundings that life gives us.
We all seek to be better – love more, be more aware, be more real to ourselves. But when we punish ourselves for our failures by feeling guilty, we can be locked into a cycle of despair and hopelessness about ourselves and the circumstances we are in. You are absolutely okay as you are, and it is absolutely natural to go astray from time to time. Just learn from it, move on, and use those lessons not to make the same mistake again.
II. The Energy of Eight of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings
When Eight of Clouds Osho zen tarot appears, this moment!…this herenow…is forgotten when you start thinking in terms of achieving something. When the achieving mind arises, you lose contact with the paradise you are in. This is one of the most liberating approaches: it liberates you right now! Forget all about sin and forget all about saintliness; both are stupid. Both together have destroyed all the joys of humanity. The sinner is feeling guilty, hence his joy is lost.
How can you enjoy life if you are continuously feeling guilty? if you are continuously going to the church to confess that you have done this wrong and that wrong? And wrong and wrong and wrong…your whole life seems to be made of sins. How can you live joyously? It becomes impossible to delight in life. You become heavy, loaded. Guilt sits on your chest like a rock, it crushes you; it does not allow you to dance.
- How can you dance?
- How can guilt dance?
- How can guilt sing?
- How can guilt love?
- How can guilt live?
So the one who thinks he is doing something wrong is guilty, burdened, dead before death, has already entered into the grave.
