5.0 out of 5 stars Just occasionally one stumbles across genuine hidden treasure..., 11 Mar 2010
This review is from: Rachel Pollack's Tarot Wisdom: Spiritual Teachings and Deeper Meanings (Paperback)
Just occasionally one stumbles across genuine hidden treasure...

As a priest I taught for many years that the greatest treasure is often discovered through the cracks and flaws of life's journey. It is as if the very act of being bruised by falling down can open us up to a deeper level of truth and wisdom. This is, of course, a common motif within the realm of myth and fairytale. Why? Well quite simply because these tales draw upon a well of deep human experiences, and make metaphors out of them.

My most recent 'stumbling across this inner treasure' occurred when a certain book fell into my hands. I have long admired the cards of the tarot, for they seem to point to and throw light on exactly the same human experiences as those I just mentioned, and (like myths) they depict them symbolically. So tarot speaks to me very powerfully.

My favourite book for years has been Rachael Pollack's awesome Seventy Eight Degrees of Wisdom. And, (again as a priest) I can well understand why it has been called the Tarot Bible. Well the other day, in Waterstones Bath, at my own book signing, a new gift was given to me. I have to confess that I had not sold a single book myself so I decided to have a break and pop upstairs to check out the esoteric bookshelves. And there the gift awaited my arrival. Rachel Pollack's new book Tarot Wisdom was standing out with bright lights ... 'I'm yours' the inner voice said.

I have since been entranced and amazed by the contains. The author has given the tarot fraternity another gemstone. She takes us on even deeper journeys into the long lost hidden gold which these mysterious cards points to in us.

What I adore about this book is that it is not only filled with the author's wisdom but, like all her books, it remains humble, easy to comprehend and shows YOU how to be the reader, rather simply telling you what to see or find. I whole heartedly recommend this beautiful book to all who wish to know more about their own deepest treasures.
