William Blake TarotJesus, flanked by angels, represents the quality of mercy, and is the soul's guide through the infernal regions yet to come. Jesus is Blake's symbol for the human imagination, the divine power in man. To Blake, Jesus is not a religious or church figure, but the personification of an idea. Forgiving error in oneself and others is an idea so creative and powerful that most people cannot even imagine it. Forgiveness has far-reaching implications in both everyday and artistic life -- because if you do not forgive others you cannot know the feeling of true joy; if you do not forgive yourself, you cannot function as an individual. Forgiveness is imagination in action. It is the root and the vine of all healing, the place of communion with all that is holy.
