It is only through the struggles of being tested that we can make spiritual progress. The quest for the Grail, the Holy Path to God is not an analytic progression, it is not obtained through the learning of our mind. The Grail Quest, the Pathway to God, the entering into communion with the ALL of Creation which is then communion with God, is an existential happening, it is a transcendence of mere mind and thought and logic and understanding. To be ONE with the ALL is to enter the realms of wonder and bliss and compassion and empathy etc. which forever exist beyond any words. This learning is of the soul and of the spirit and is existential to the utmost degree. These learnings must be EXPERIENCED, and only through descent into the realms of matter, into the domains of gravity, into the polarities of thesis, antithesis, synthesis, the polarities of struggle, can we experience in the very guts and bowels of our souls the lessons we must duly learn. They MUST be learnt, for only then can we duly give of ourselves to others. And only then can we know God and be ONE with God.
These insights, that were begun by Richard Dell right back in the early 1990s, touch on all the most meaningful and indeed important religious and spiritual issues of our times. They are the same now as they were then. These Insights see religion just as firmly grounded in the Earth and in the stars as it is in the spirit and in the heavens. Richard sees no distinction between the material and spiritual realms. ALL is ONE. This comes through so clearly in these Insights, and that is why the environmental movement – our awakening at last to the needs of Gaia, of our planet – is as important as any spiritual quest, as important as all our need for healing, and is and must be an integral part of that holistic oneness that we must achieve in all that we do. It is also why issues such as Black Lives Matter are deeply spiritual. Richard sees inclusivity as being at the core of all our spiritual and religious endeavours. ALL is indeed ONE. And that mantra is the key to humanity’s future evolution: spiritual, social and political.
