BODY MIND AND SPIRIT WHEN ONE, IS OURSELVES MADE WHOLE, OURSELVES MADE COMPLETE. SUCH IS THE SPIRITUAL MEANING WITHIN THE SACRED AND MYSTICAL QUEST FOR THE GRAIL. FOR THE GRAIL IS WITHIN. THE HOLY GRAIL IS US. THE LONG SACRED PILGRIMAGE ONLY ENDS WHEN WE ACCEPT AND ACTUALLY LIVE THAT PROFOUND SPIRITUAL REALITY. THE MEANING OF OUR SPIRITUAL LIVES IS IN FACT US OURSELVES: WHEN WE OURSELVES HAVE BEEN MADE NEW IN THE REALISATION OF THAT GREAT SPIRITUAL AND SACRED TRUTH.
An ancient and wise man peers into the distance. He is us, and he is the spiritual journey we all must take. Against a dark background, a beautiful golden chalice, the Holy Grail itself is seen all, but absorbed into the wise old man’s face. The ancient man is our journey. The Grail is our destiny.
Body mind and spirit when ONE, is ourselves made whole, ourselves made complete. The quest for the Grail is within; the Holy Grail is US. Body, Mind and Spirit. We too easily and readily function in just the one plane. We sometimes learn that body and mind are linked. We sometimes manage to recognise that when linked, when seen as two aspects of ourselves, connected and entangled, body and mind as ONE can raise us to new and even unimaginable heights of achievement and awareness. It takes effort. It takes concentration. It pays. Body, mind and spirit as ONE, requires of us even greater effort, even greater depths and heights of concentration. But those depths and those heights can be beyond measure, if we can achieve them. Body and mind as ONE, is our first sacred haven on our eternal quest to God, to ourselves, to everything. Body and Mind and Spirit as ONE transcends itself. Body and Mind and Spirit as one, is ONENESS, is us at last ONE with the ALL.
The Quest of the Grail – the sacred and mystical and spiritual search for the Holy Grail – has held us spellbound for centuries. And the great spiritual truth within the Grail stories, is that the Grail is indeed real. The Grail does indeed exist. Whether we know it or not, we are all upon a spiritual and mystical pilgrimage to the sacred eternal infinite. There may be times when we lose our way, when we lose sight of the Quest, of the Holy Grail that is our ultimate purpose. But even so, it is there, and indeed it is hidden in full sight.
They say that we have to travel, that we have to embark upon the adventure ‘out there’, to fully appreciate that place we have come from, to fully appreciate Home. And in a sense that is the purpose of our spiritual and sacred pilgrimage, the purpose of our quest for meaning in our lives, the purpose for our seeking mystical and sacred enlightenment, and spiritual awakening. We must be pilgrims, we have to seek our destiny, our Holy Grail, ‘out there’. And in doing so, we will find ourselves: where we have always been. We are the Holy Grail. What we seek is ourselves. But not the mundane non-spiritual selves we seem to be before we set out, but the sacred, truly spiritual and mystical selves we actually always were and will indeed become, because the quest will make manifest what we always were. The quest, the pilgrimage is vital. But the destination was always us ourselves. But us ourselves made aware of being whole: of being ONE with the ALL.
Study the Grail stories, know all the Quest stories, and then absorb them deep into ourselves so that we can know them for what they truly are: the stories of spiritual adventure, the slowly emerging awareness of our own sacredness and the sacredness of ALL of Creation that we are ONE with, and always had been ONE with. We are all deep-set in the greatest of spiritual adventures. We are all holy and sacred pilgrims searching for Truth and God and Holiness, and in actual fact forever searching for ourselves, for we ourselves are Holy and sacred and luminescent with deep-set mystical meaning.
The Quest for the Grail is our own story. And the Holy Grail itself is US. This is the truth of all the spiritual and mystical paths, all the scared spiritual awakenings, all the unfolding of spiritual meaning within our true ONENESS. The Quest for the Grail is our spiritual and mystical destiny, our pilgrimage of meaning, our spiritual pilgrimage of soul transcendence beyond mere SELF, into the magical awareness of our sacred ALL.
