Cards Chosen: Osho Zen
Card: The Master
Official Meaning: The Master in Zen is not a master of others, yet a master of himself. His every gesture and his every word reflect his enlightened state. He has no private goals, no desire that anything should be other than the way it is. His disciples gather around him, not to follow him, rather to soak up his presence and be inspired by his example. In his eyes, they find their own truth reflected, and in his silence, they fall more easily into the silence of their own beings.
The Master welcomes his disciples, not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together they create an energy field that supports each unique individual in finding his or her own light.
Beyond Mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea – and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds awareness. The whole work of meditation is to make you aware of all that is “mind” and dis-identify yourself from it. That very separation is the greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Intuitive Meaning: The Master is full of wisdom, truth, and true meaning – or knowledge. He is the very epitome of the ancient, tranquility that does not need to impress, yet inspires the consciousness to profound understanding of The Universe and all that there is. He is simply here – in the NOW that is. He is all knowing, all seeing, and all hearing. It is the little nuances that happen in life which are nurtured and grown within him, to inspire to others their aspirations of life. I am The Master.
