Here is another free TeenyTinyTarot pamplet that consists mostly of long block quotes from the Meditations on the Tarot. Despite the title, there is no particularly Christian doctrine presented, nor any reference to the history of Christianity. Nor does it engage Platonism, beyond the most generic of dualist metaphysical notions and the name-dropping of Plotinus and of Plato's Phaedrus. Another curious instance of name-dropping is that of the Traditionalist Sufi Martin Lings, where some specific writing by Lings is apparently at issue, but it is not specified. The text in the current pamphlet has been taken from conversation pendant to a class presented by the anonymous author, a context which helps account for the missing connections and details.

The back cover of the pamphlet has its most interesting content: a little "game" called "Playing the Fool," where the Trumps are shuffled and then put back in sequence. Although "It is considered by some very auspicious when The Fool doesn't turn up until the last play of the game," that's just a matter of a one-in-twenty-two chance (or perhaps physical clairvoyance), so it's really not much of a game. It is a slight improvement on a similar exercise called "Joy to the World" published on the TeenyTinyTarot website.
