All the most ancient systems of knowledge assert that physical existence is created by the mind, which projects the reality the individual then experiences. Perception is a “smoky mirror” — smoky to the degree of the individual’s realization of their role in creating what appears in the mirror, and possibly even the mirror itself.
I am the Smoky Mirror, because I am looking at myself in all of you, but we don’t recognize each other because of the smoke in-between us. That smoke is the Dream, and the mirror is you, the dreamer. ~ Ruiz, Don Miguel, The Four Agreements
The analogy of Tarot to language is obvious: each card in a reading can be seen as a word in a sentence. In a language, a word is made up of characters that are each symbols that stand in for a packet of information. As the symbol-characters are strung together to create a sentence, so the symbols and archetypes in a card can be assembled by the brain into a cohesive unit of meaning. And in the same way that words are strung together to create a meaningful sentence, so images on the cards in a reading can be assembled in a coherent and meaningful sentence.
