Four Of Water – Osho Zen Tarot Deck
I. The explanation of Four of Water Osho Zen Tarot
The woman in Four of Water Osho Zen Tarot is showing a soft smile on her face. In fact, she was just observing what the mind was doing; not judging, not trying to stop nor analyzing them. She only saw them as passersby, like a ripple on the lake. And the antics of the mind are always hilarious, they keep jumping up and down, twisting in many ways, trying to attract attention and entice us into the game.
Being able to develop abilities in creating a distance from the mind is one of the great favors. Those are the things we do when we meditate, chant, or repeat an affirmation, but we only look at it, as if they belong to someone else’s mind. Right now, you are ready to create this distance, to watch the show without getting caught up in the drama. Let’s immerse yourself in the simple freedom of Turning In whenever possible and knack of meditation will develop and deepen in you.
II. The energy of Four of Water Osho Zen Tarot based on Osho’s teachings
Turning inwards is not a turning at all. Going inwards is not a going at all. Turning inwards simply means that you have been running after this desire and that, and you have been running and running and you have been coming again and again to frustration.
That each desire brings misery, that there is no fulfillment through desire. That you never reach anywhere, that contentment is impossible.
Seeing this truth, that running after desires takes you nowhere, you stop. Not that you make any effort to stop. If you make any effort to stop it is again running, in a subtle way. You are still desiring–maybe now it is desirelessness that you desire. If you are making an effort to go in, you are still going out. Any effort can only take you out, outwards.
All journeys are outward journeys, there is no inward journey. How can you journey inwards? You are already there, there is no point in going. When going stops, journeying disappears; when desiring is no more clouding your mind, you are in. This is called turning in. But it is not a turning at all, it is simply not going out.
