“I’m not a teacher, only a fellow traveler, of whom you asked the way. I pointed ahead — ahead of myself as well as you.” — George Bernard Shaw
James Ricklef is a Tarot writer and deck creator. He has been a frequent workshop presenter at Tarot conferences from Los Angeles to New York. His most recent book, The Soul’s Journey, reveals spiritual messages for all seventy-eight Tarot cards to help anyone be able to incorporate a spiritual essence into their Tarot reading practice. The spiritual messages in this book were divined from both the cards and a wide range of spiritual tomes, and they were originally posted as a series of articles on his Tarot blog. (You can find a list of links to them here: jamesricklef.wordpress.com/tag/spirituality/) However, you don’t have to know about—or even care about—the Tarot to use and assimilate these spiritual insights because they are timeless and universal.
The following Ram Dass quote succinctly explains why James is doing this spiritual work with the Tarot:
“We are all on the journey towards enlightenment and at each stage must share what has been discovered with those who will listen. The sharing is part of the work. The listening is part of the work. We are all on the path.”
