“Psst! Hey, you – wanna know a secret? Yeah, you – come here. See this guy here. No, not that one, this one. Yeah, the silly one. Ya know, he’s really quite wise. What!?! You think he’s a fool? Well, he is a fool, but, and this is the secret, he’s happier than any other person you’ll ever meet!”
About a week ago, I was manning a booth at a Metaphysical Fair. On more than one occasion, a person walked by, looked at me, then looked at the title of my book A Fool’s Journey. They then looked back at me and said, “You’ve written the story of my life!” As they said this, they rolled their eyes indicating all of the foolish things they’ve done.
The Journey of The Fool is the story of their life… and mine… and everyone else’s. But my book is called A Fool’s Journey, which is just one example.
The Journey of the Fool is a description often applied to the Tarot – and more specifically the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Card 0 is the Fool. It’s where we start in life. No handbook. No instructions. Gee, we can’t even talk, walk, feed our self, or keep from making a mess. No wonder we cry so much.
The worst of it all is that, from what I hear, we come in remembering who we really are. Think about the greatest masters like Jesus and the Buddha. Imagine lying there, knowing you’re the savior, and then messing yourself in front of all of those people. You talk about feeling foolish!
So each journey starts there, but that’s where the similarities end. We all start as the Fool, but then each path is unique, and there’s no script. Well, that’s not true either. There is a script. There is that which is written. It’s called the Akashic Records – but it’s written after the fact! “So not only are we not told how we’re supposed to do anything, we’re then recorded?” Yep. And you thought getting caught on YouTube was bad!
The reason there’s no manual is because there really are no rules. Yeah, things feel right and wrong. And being wronged sure feels the most wrong of anything. But once you’ve seen the Perfection of the Universe at play, then you get it. It’s all perfection. What? Haven’t ever heard of the Perfection of the Universe before?
Well, that’s where I come in, and others like me. There are those of us that read the stars or read the cards. We’ll tell you what your birth date means or what color your aura is. And then we tune in – really tune in. Some of us even access your records, and that’s when the secrets are revealed.
“Yes, you were a master before – a yogi. In fact, you’ve had lifetime after lifetime studying the human form. You’ve been an athlete and a doctor. You’ve been an actor, a writer, and a painter. You’ve studied the human body from one angle and then the next. And it’s all been written down.” That quote – not really a direct quote – was what came through in an Akashic Reading once. It almost blew my client out of the water! Sort of blew me away too. I had never seen so many lifetimes flash by so quickly before.
So the Fool is where we start, but it is also where we end. In the original channeled version of the Major Arcana, the Fool was #22, which is also a Master Number. The Wisdom of the Fool is so much more than foolishness. When you emulate the Fool, you’re open hearted, a little out of your mind, and focused solely on the moment at hand. Yeah, it looks foolish to us, but look where we’re at.
These days, I mix the Tarot and the Akashic Records. Sometimes I add in a little numerology or astrology. I basically just do as I’m guided – or asked – and then we play. It’s not so much about what will happen to you, but what could happen. That’s where the fun is. That’s where the creation is. That’s where the perfection is. It only looks foolish until you see what’s really going on!
