From the Osho Zen Tarot
The small child in this card is standing on one side of a gate, looking through it. He is so small, and so convinced that he cannot get through, he cannot see that the chain holding the gate is not locked; all he has to do is open it.
Whenever we feel “left out” or excluded, it brings up this feeling of being a small, helpless child. It is not surprising, as the feeling is deeply rooted in our earliest childhood experiences. The problem is that, because it is so deeply rooted, it plays over and over again, like a tape, in our lives.
You have an opportunity now to stop the tape, to quit tormenting yourself with ideas that you are somehow “not enough” to be accepted and included. Recognise the roots of these feelings in the past, and let go of the old pain.
It will bring you the clarity to see how you can open the gate and enter that which you most long to become.
