The Spirit of the Tarot
The Search for God's Picturebook

Spirituality begins with a reverence for the ordinary that can lead us to insights and experiences that are anything but ordinary. And the conventional opposition between humility and hubris has no place. Yes, the common is vast and appears indifferent to our moral schemes, but every present moment of consciousness is profound. In subjective terms, each of us is identical to the very principle that brings value to the universe.  Experiencing this directly–not merely thinking about it–is the true beginning of spiritual life.
