"The Tarot operates primarily through the
symbolic, non-rational aspects of consciousness, the same state from which dreams
communicate. The quality of accuracy of the Tarot interpretation depends
solely upon the querent's own ability, because it is only a reflection of the
focus or level of consciousness of the inquirer. The Tarot is an excellent
teacher, for as the user advances in expanded awareness it reflects this
expansion and responds uniquely to each individual, never teaching more than the
person is capable of receiving."
- Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook, p. 18

"Artistic vision registers and prophesies
the expanding consciousness of man. I am not speaking only of works of
art, but the artistic vision wherever it imbues living acts. Artistic
imagination creates what has never before existed. To live artistically is
to embody in social forms the unique individual and the intuitions of union."
- M. C. Richards
