I am new to this deck but I find that, just like the advice of any person, his thoughts must be taken with a grain of salt. Osho is very wise and the deck contains a great deal of wisdom and practical advice but someone pointed out that he is very anti-religious which is not a viewpoint that everyone can or should take.

I think the existence card is a truly beautiful card. But I think that it actually is similar to the lessons of the magician of rws in the sense that it reminds us of our personal power as beings. We have the power to say 'yes' to life and the world, to accept it, to be part of it, or to attempt to influence it. The act of acceptance is a mighty act, and the kind of contemplation the woman on the lotus leaf seems to display seems very similar to the effortlessness of the magician's weilding of his tools. I think perhaps that the existence card makes the beauty of the lesson clearer by stripping the ornamentation from the card and having the reader contemplate the beauty and power of simply being. Just speculation, but I do love this card.
