INSIGHT 29. THE KINGS THAT SLEEP IN THE HILLS UNTIL THE DAY THEY SHALL AWAKE; THE REDEEMERS WHO PROMISED TO RETURN, ARE NOT KINGS AND REDEEMERS. BUT THEIR RETURN IS GUARANTEED. FOR THEY ARE THE SPIRITUAL AND SACRED WEATHER OF ALL THE MYSTICAL CYCLES OF THE AGES. WE AWAIT NOT INDIVIDUALS, BUT A SPIRITUAL AND SACRED REAWAKENING; IF WE ARE READY. AND WITH THAT AWAKENING, SO SHALL COME OUR SPIRITUAL HEALING OF OURSELVES, OF EACH OTHER, OF OUR COMMUNITIES AND OF OUR MOTHER EARTH, OUR HOLY GAIA. GREET NOT THE RETURNING KINGS AND AVATARS, BUT INSTEAD PREPARE TO GREET OUR NEXT AWAKENING ON OUR LONG PILGRIMAGE BACK TO GOD.
One aspect of the British Arthurian legends, that at times lies as dormant and hidden as the Grail itself, is the belief that Arthur and his knights are asleep – the Welsh hills are the favoured locations for their slumber – and that one day they will awake, or be awakened, and shall return to redeem and restore Albion. The ‘Once and Future King’? Such legends and myths exist around the world. They are all but embedded in the human psyche. Even Jesus Christ, we are told, will return in a Second Coming to redeem His people. The truth may well be found in these stories, though with a nuance that makes them profound beyond their mere telling. It is not the Kings and knights of yore, it is not the messiahs and avatars, who will return. These leaders and prophets are in fact the exoteric or outer personification of something deeper and ultimately more powerful. So what is the truth that hides in these legends and stories? It is that in the cosmic rhythm of eternal humanity’s continuing pilgrimage, and in the rhythmic breathing of our planet’s own life and story, and in the eternal and infinite unfolding of the creation itself, there run hidden streams of truth and wisdom, that periodically sink beneath the surface of our awareness, but which periodically, at times that are determined by the undulating rhythm of the ALL and also by our readiness to understand and GAIN by it, these streams of truth and wisdom emerge into the light of day and into the light of our being; sometimes through the teaching and very existence of some great soul, and sometimes through our own collective readiness to absorb and proclaim and most importantly PROSPER from the awareness and wisdom that will suddenly touch us all, and just as suddenly change the future direction of our progress for the future, until those streams vanish once again, and then at some future time enter our souls yet again, for the next step in humanity’s all but endless journey to the stars and to God. The keys to the next opening of our souls do indeed lie asleep in the hills
