Tarot Story

sun tarotThe Fool woke up from his long and restless sleep and found that the wild river has come to an end. He found himself in a serene pool. There is a garden around this pool and the garden has lovely flowers such as rose and lillies. The Fool watches the Sun rise overhead and finds ot bright and golden. The Fool hears a child’s laughter and finds a little boy who rode a small white pony into the garden. With enthusiasm, the child took the Fool’s hand and pointed to all manners of things in the garden. He started asking the Fool questions like “Why is the sky blue?”. The boy also sang songs and played games with the Fool.

The Fool looked up at the sky and noted that the Sun is large and golden. The Fool found himself smiling wider and brighter than he had for a long time. Eversince the Fool had started on his spiritual journey, he found that he had been tested and tried. This is the first time he has been smiling simply because he is happy. The Fool felt that his mind was relaxed and that the child, with his simple questions had enabled the Fool to see the world and himself anew. The Fool asked the boy who he is and the child simply smiled and said “I’m You”. These words filled the Fool with warmth and energy. At this point, the Fool realized that he had just met his own inner light.
