Breakthrough, Osho Zen Tarot
Theme: "presence in the now"
Deck: Osho Zen Tarot
Card: Breakthrough (R)
Reversed - No yet..? Wait for it?
"All of us occasionally reach a point when 'enough is enough'. At such times we must do something, anything, even if it later turns out to be a mistake." So, this raises SO many thoughts, especially when reversed. DO we really NEED to do ANYthing? Is 'enough is enough' even a "soul thing", or is it just enough for (in) the head? If so, isn't "any action" rather merely impulsive/compulsive - a "mistake" to be avoided? But also, are there really any mistakes? What's done is done. If it feels like a mistake, the action just shouldn't have been done? It's just not very Zen in my perception.
"If you are now feeling that 'enough is enough', allow yourself to take the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your energy from flowing." Which are the limitations and what is it that keep the energies from flowing? I guess "any action" would put the energy in A flow, but what flow? Wouldn't it be more Zen to figure out what the block is, to find out what triggers the 'enough is enough' feeling? Rather than to 'just act' and find it out later, and risk an 'OOOOPS' because of premature action? But of course, if you really have no way of figuring it out 'action' may be the 'solution/way forward'. So, maybe this cards advice me to NOT just act? Neither because of 'enough is enough' feelings nor impulsive 'fun' actions because of feelings of excitement - which is the other side of the spectra. Action under the headline "I just wanted to inspire/entertain/cheer" - something suddenly bubbling in me for 20 hours or so. Not the wanting to create change out of anger or frustration - the most common feeling in me - but the more rare "c'mon, let's do something" out of excitement. Under the assumption that this is more ok. But probably just as "bad" in the other direction. Both being "uncontrolled impulses" - merely energy leakage, and better placed elsewhere - much to my head's irritation.
"To transform breakdowns into break-throughs is the whole function of the master." And to transform it conscious action should take place, not ANY action, right...? And also, does a breakthrough necessarily need to come from a breakdown? Enough could feel enough without it breaking you down? It's a very strange card this - and/or the text to it.
"it is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously." THAT is very true!
"It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough."
(HE is going - or will "have to" go - through a breakdown though, I guess. And there's certainly no guarantees he will be able to turn it into a breakthrough. Or if he even will allow the breakdown to happen. Or if I will be allowed to help/support/guide.)

Immediate sensation: don't "just act", but keep working with/in the Hidden Realms.

"Spirit companions, guides, comfort"
"We yearn not simply to be around others, but to be seen and understood, cared for, and communed with. So many of our interactions now lack that soulfulness, and we sometimes yearn for the companionship that we know we are meant to be experiencing."
"Tell the hidden worlds of all that troubles you, and wait for the voices that will come and whisper their words of comfort."
Where/how should I direct my "feelings/energy of excitement/enticement"?
