I. The explanation of Five of Water Osho Zen Tarot

The character in Five of Water Osho Zen Tarot seems to be very worried. Her hand held the box of memories tightly. She was turning her back on the glass of champagne and prayed. Her nostalgia for her past made her look like a lunatic – a miser as we can see it from her patched and ragged outfit. Of course, she did not need to become such a miserable person. But she was not ready to enjoy the present pleasures.

This is the time to face the past. Any attempt to repeat the past will create a trail with old traces. Everything could have grown faster if you had not tried to stick to the past. Take a deep breath, put the box down, tie a ribbon to it if you want, and send it a respectful farewell. Your life is passing, and you are in danger when you try to become an old fossil of yourself!

II. The Energy of Five of Water Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

These tenses–past, present and future–are not the tenses of time; they are tenses of the mind. That which is no longer before the mind becomes the past. That which is before the mind is the present. And that which is going to be before the mind is the future.

Past is that which is no longer before you. Future is that which is not yet before you. And present is that which is before you and is slipping out of your sight. Soon it will be past… If you don’t cling to the past…because clinging to the past is absolute stupidity. It is no longer there, so you are crying for spilled milk. What is gone is gone! And don’t cling to the present because that is also going and soon it will be past.

Don’t cling to the future–hopes, imaginations, plans for tomorrow–because tomorrow will become today, will become yesterday. Everything is going to become yesterday. Everything is going to go out of your hands. Clinging will simply create misery. You will have to let go.
