Tarot: How to create a soul

“I have always been drawn to things I found interesting but couldn’t understand. The tarot fascinated me because it was very strange. (…) You see all the tarot at once and realize it is a unit. And then you study the different parts. Once you analyze this, you learn to see the tarot. You must not talk about the future. The future is a con. The tarot is a language that talks about the present. If you use it to see the future, you become a con man. (…) For me, the tarot was something more serious. It was a deep psychological search. When you work with tarot, you see that chance exists, synchronicity exists, everything is linked. But nothing is a matter of probability. If you set your spirit to something, that phenomenon will happen. When you are determined, when you deeply enter that dimension that I call the dance of reality, the world dances around you and gives you what you seek. (…) Everything symbolizes something in the tarot. It’s an encyclopedia of symbols, it’s a great optic language.”

Alejandro Jodorowsky vigorously explains the tarot (translation from youtube-subtitles).
