The Change– Osho Zen Tarot Deck
I. The commentary of The Change Osho Zen
The symbol of the Change Osho Zen is the giant wheel which representing time, destiny, and karma. The Milky Way revolves around a perpetual motion circle with 12 signs of the zodiac on the outer edge. Inside the circle are the eight trigrams of I Ching and near the center of the circle are the four directions, illuminated by the energy of lightning. The rotating triangle is now facing upwards, towards the gods. At the center of the wheel is the symbol of yin and yang, male and female, creative and receptive.
It is often said that the only constant thing in the world is change. Life is constantly changing, evolving, dying and rebirth. All opposites play a role in this vast circle. If you cling to the edge of the wheel, you may be dizzy! Then move to the center of the storm and relax because you know the storm will pass.
II. The meaning of The Change Osho Zen
Life repeats itself unconsciously – unless you perfect mindfulness, it will continue to spin like a wheel. That is why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death – the wheel of time. The Change Osho Zen moves like a wheel: birth and death, death and birth; love and hate, hate and love; success and failure, failure and success. Look at that!
If you can observe for only a few days, you will see a rule. That is the law of circulation. One day, on a beautiful morning, you feel very excited and happy, and then on another day; you feel so sad, so deadly that you start to have suicidal thoughts. And one day, you feel so alive, you happily see the grace of God that gave you the mood of deep gratitude and today you see resentment and no benefit in living … The wheel keeps moving, but you will not see it anymore.
Only when you see through the law of the circulation can you escape it.
