“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.”
― Joseph Campbell
Coming from a background of someone who has worked with and at divination with tarot cards and with other methods such as the I Ching, Bibliomancy, Tea Leaves and Runes, I have a rather strange relationship with the future. If I thought that what I was being shown was the definitive future by any of these methods I don’t know that I would continue using them. Oh I get a lot of insight for sure and most times I can tell what the most probable outcome of the situation will be. However there is always the chance that the person getting the reading will alter their trajectory, change their routines, learn from advice given and the outcome will change. Our paths are up to us to find and to make and to create each step of the way. Is some of it foreseeable? Yes for sure but we can always hit that unexpected moment and create something new. We do it all the time.
