I recently part-watched a programme on one of the many TV channels called ‘Raiders of the Lost Past’. The subject was none other than The Holy Grail. A German – whose name I can’t remember – began an exhaustive research on the subject. Finally, he came to the conclusion that most of what was written was unreliable but felt that the most valid insights were to be found in the songs of the troubadours of the Middles Ages. These fabled troubadours originated from the Cathar lands of the Languedoc. It has long been held that their songs were a secret means of transmitting and preserving the beliefs of the Cathars which included their understanding of the nature of duality. In translating them, the German researcher found references to The Holy Grail as a ‘stone’ – and not as a cup.
At first I thought of the fabled ‘Meonia Stone’ whose power was written about in the book, ‘The Green Stone’. But then I settled more comfortably on the idea that the Troubadours were keeping alive the knowledge of the ancient energy system set up by the Atlanteans when they knew their land was soon to be destroyed. The aim to was to try and keep the planetary energies as high as they possibly could in the adverse conditions that were about to be visited upon the planet. For, as many know, The Holy Grail is but a symbol for the 4th Dimension, or higher consciousness – where there is no duality – and that once existed on the planet but was subsequently lost. These wise ones knew the end of Atlantis was close because of the misuse of the great crystals of Atlantis as a means of domination.
The new energy system they established on the peripheral countries of Atlantis – such as Ireland, Cornwall and Brittany – used crystal/quartz rich stones in the form of stones circles, lines of standing stones and huge stone sarsens, at intervals, in straight lines, to transmit the energy over great distances. That energy system was a fallen or lesser version of the crystal energy system of Atlantis.
This is of course mere speculation on the meaning of the word ‘stone’ as used by the troubadours of old. But it appeared in their songs in such a way as to inspire a man to conclude it was to The Holy Grail these minstrels were secretly referring.
A few days later……….. After a conversation with a friend I might have revised my understanding of the word ‘stone’ as used by the troubadours in their songs. This friend told she saw a programme that demonstrated the painstaking process whereby a lump of rock was turned into a goblet (!) Perhaps, therefore, we might surmise that the troubadours were indeed alluding to the Grail Cup, one that had been fashioned from a single lump of stone. I would add however that from my understanding of the subject from a variety of sources, the Holy Grail does also refer to a higher state of consciousness that used to exist on the planet but was lost with the destruction of Atlantis.
That stone energy system is no longer and has been replaced with a higher energy. At the very beginning of the quest in 1988 we were told that the energies of the planet could sink no lower and that we had to go back the way we came, ie to the higher vibration – and that we were in the ‘last chance saloon’. With the energies of world war that Tolkien writes about in Lord of the Rings starting to stir yet again at the end of the Age, we set about cleansing the One Ring of its negative vibrations. The planet was being choked with the accumulation of the negative energy created by humans through Time. Other books such as Tolkien’s Ring trilogy, (all trilogies strangely enough), have been used to bring in the next layer of energies where events needed putting right before being cleared away.
And just a thought on the word ‘Holy’ – it is saying ‘Whole’ ie no duality, the opposites reunited once again. And the ‘Y’ is showing us that union, or I should say, that reunion.
To continue with the meaning of the Holy Grail. Take the shape of the diamond – which is also the shape of the Great Pyramid if you take into account the half below the surface. The lower half of the diamond is the Grail Cup (feminine), whilst the upper half pointing up is the sword, or flame, the masculine energy. If you merge the two just a little, the upper and lower halves merge and it is this that creates the Waters of Life spilling over from the Cup. It is the meaning of ‘The Sword in the Stone’, the stone being of the Earth, which is Feminine and the Sword being the Masculine dynamic energy.
Perhaps the Cathar Troubadours knew this truth, which is why they referred to The Holy Grail as a ‘stone’ in their songs.
I should add here that the old energy system of the stones is no more: it has been cleared of the accumulated negativity in preparation for a new energy that has come in as suggested above.
