Neo: But if you already know, how can I make a choice?
The Oracle: Because you didn’t come here to make the choice, you’ve already made it. You’re here to try to understand *why* you made it. I thought you’d have figured that out by now.
I had an interesting conversation with Kelsey Lynore of http://thetarotnook.com/ about the human need of oracles, which dates back to the dawn of civilization. The fruit of our conversing is my article on the Pythia and the Oracle of Delphi, which I presented to Kelsey to feature on her blog:
With her insightful tarot readings, Kelsey is the modern embodiment of the Pythia to me. She has twice given me readings and each time I was amazed how different the whole procedure was from a typical, cliché encounter with a fortune teller. She is nothing like a fortune teller, but rather the High Priestess, eloquent in the metaphorical language of symbols and incredibly intuitive: an ultra-modern woman coming from a long lineage of ancient wise sorceresses.
