Tradition is a Guide

05 The Hierophant Gilded Tarot Royale

“Tradition is a guide and not a jailer.”
– W. Somerset Maughan

I like to think of tradition in the positive sense of ‘standing on the shoulders of giants.’ There are so many worthy people to learn from and so many tried and tested methods that we all do well to learn if we want to skip tripping ourselves up.

The problem with tradition is when it turns into traditionalism – tradition for the sake of tradition… unthinking, sheeple-like ways of doing things because the status quo feels more safe than the unknown.
