Tarot and the Upanishads

Of course, I am not going to make any serious conclusions or pretend I am the first one to discover this, but here is a very interesting passage:

“…There he shakes off his good and bad deeds, which fall upon his relatives – the good deeds upon the ones he likes and the bad deeds upon the ones he dislikes. It is like this – as a man driving a chariot would look down and observe the two wheels of his chariot, so he looks down and observes his days and nights, the good and bad deeds, and all the pairs of opposites. Freed from his good and bad deeds, this man, who has the knowledge of brahman, goes on to brahman.” – Kaushitaki Upanishad, 1.4, translated by Patrick Olivelle.
