This book is an exposition of the the spiritual underpinnings of the symbols of the Tarot. It is an explanation of the spiritual principals which have their corresponding manifestations in human reality. It is a guide for understanding all that has happened, is happening, and will happen. The past, present, and future. (CWB)

A profound spiritual work. ( )

I can only read this in short bursts--it tends to either overwhelm me with all the allusions to other works or ideas or it just confuses me. ( )

Spiritus whi vult spirat: et vocem ejus audis, sed nescis unde veniat, aut quo vadat: sic est omnis, qui natus est ex spiritu. --(John iii, 8)
The wind blows where it wills, and
you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. -- (John iii, 8)
Into this happy night
In secret, seen of none,
Nor saw I aught,
Without other light or guide,
Save that in which my heart did burn.
------( St. John of the Cross, The Dark Night of the Soul, verse iii,, trsl. G.
C. Graham, London, 1922, p. 29)
This edition is dedicated to Our Lady of Chartres.
First words
Dear Unknown Friend, The words of the Master cited above have served me the key for opening the door to comprehension of the first Major Arcanum of the Tarot, "The Magician", which is, in turn, the key to all the other Major Arcana.
