T he blood mysteries of the passion of Christ (The Way -The Quest) create the pilgrimage path to attain the Holy grail. The grail may be different for everyone. 

Tangible Holy Grail Relics 

By Douglas Gabriel

Throughout the Camino de Santiago, from France to Spain, we find the legends of numerous grails that have found their way into churches, monasteries, and holy places. The legends and stories that accompany these relics are varied and do not match up, especially seeing that there are over one hundred grails in European churches that claim to be the authentic cup used by Jesus at the Last Super. Numerous spears associated with Longinus can also be found in Christian churches along with the blood of the foreskin of Jesus, numerous crowns of thorns, nails of the cross, and the pieces of the true cross, among other blood relics.
The habit of creating third-class relics by touching first- or second-class relics became very popular in the centuries after Jesus. It seemed that Christians needed something tangible from this world to help them believe in a person who lived long ago and now rules invisibly from another world. Even the bones of saints became a touchstone for these early Christians needing proof of the spirit.
Pre-Christian stories of spiritual tools of the gods became mixed with Christian stories of Jesus and the saints. Celtic and Norse myths were mixed with Mithraic, Persian, Indian and Egyptian beliefs to explain the blood mysteries of Jesus Christ in tangible ideas that were familiar to those the Christians evangelized. In France and Spain, the pantheistic ideas of the Romans were prevalent and the Arabic influence in Spain sparked a revolution of ideas about chivalry, courtly love, and grail romances. 
Most of the grail romance stories came from France as offerings to the Queens of Aquitaine, Castile, Leon, Aragon, Toulouse, and the entire Occitania. Arthurian legends were also written in France and they begin with stories of Joseph of Arimathea (grail), Longinus (spear) and their miracles and the spiritual sustenance associated with these grail relics.
Courtly Love was a "Way" to turn the soldier (knight) of the grail into a seeker of the grail who ultimately became a guardian or protector of the blood mysteries. The chivalrous knight vows allegiance to the ladies of the grail who are the grail maidens or keepers of the grail.
The pre-Christian Celtic blood mystery myths have the grail maidens carry in a platter with a severed head upon it that has a spear dripping blood into the platter (grail). This idea is found in Christian beliefs as the head of John the Baptist being brought before Salome and Herod. Thus, an ancient pagan belief pre-figured the reality of the "way of suffering" of Jesus and his followers. Ancient symbols and ideas were not simply adopted by Christians to get their point across to people who had already developed such beliefs. 
The reality is that the ancient beliefs were developed by priests and priestesses who were naturally clairvoyant; accordingly, what they worshiped was the truth of what would one day manifest as the fulfillment of their direct clairvoyant experiences.
Ancient beliefs coincide with Christian beliefs because they are describing the same spiritual realities that eventually came to pass. The Finnish Kalevala, for example, makes a clear prediction about Jesus of Nazareth at the end of the epic long before Christian times. A clear foreknowledge of spiritual realities yet to manifest is predicted in most ancient beliefs and can be found united in Christian beliefs, legends and tales.
It would be fair to say that Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled all true prophecy and the symbols and spiritual tools of the ancients became a physical reality through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. No one belief in the ancient world was comprehensive and all-encompassing enough until the one and only incarnation of Jesus Christ came to merge all beliefs into a direct experience of the Holy Grail, the nourishment of the Holy Spirit and Pentecost.

It is very instructive to study the beliefs of the past and understand how the crucifixion of Jesus becomes the most important moment in human spiritual evolution. The divine deed of the death of Jesus becomes the "turning point" in human history. The awakened consciousness of the human being, from that time forward, became able to seek and find the Holy Grail through their own spiritual striving - The Way. Each of us can redeem the expulsion from paradise and attain the spiritual tools for ascending back to heaven.
The search for the Holy Grail is the path of the prodigal son who leaves home to seek his fortune and eventually realizes that he must simply return home to accept his inheritance. The seeker must tame desire and birth the Holy Grail in their heart which is renewed and given eternal life through the Blood Mysteries of Jesus Christ.
The blood mysteries of the passion of Christ (The Way -The Quest) create the pilgrimage path to attain the Holy grail. The grail may be different for everyone. Some need a spiritual tool like a relic, a cup, a spear, a nail, or a piece of the cross upon which redemption was won to give them the faith to maintain the quest and follow The Way of Jesus' passion. Others need only the idea of the grail as an analogy or a symbol to attain its nourishment. While yet others, need only their mind (flaming sword), their heart (holy grail) and their tamed dragon (spear) of desires to be refined into the wisdom, love, and mercy of Christ (the higher self). Whether physical tool, idea, or virtuous path, the 'quest for the grail' can become the Christian "way of suffering" that leads to the higher-self finding its divine home.

Glass beads in our Glass Bead Game are contributions that participants make in a global "game of consciousness" that help awaken others to a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. 

In the internet, learning is beyond time and space. You may read this newsletter today, but others may not read it for another year. It is a personal journey  for truth that unfolds as your consciousness is ready to embrace it. We have attempted to create a digital landscape for your exploration. 

Tyla and Douglas arrange information on our sites, much like the technique called  Stone Balancing.

Each day, we pull together the bits and pieces of information (our stones) and balance them in intelligent and interesting ways for our subscribers. Whether you are a casual reader of this newsletter, or a  daily reader of Truth News Headlines, you will find a place of logic, order, truth, and beauty. 

The landscape of the internet, like the discovery of truth and our Temple of Wisdom (the Glass Bead Game), is radiant, non-linear. 

That having been said, we would like to share these glass beads below that came to us from readers this week. If you have digital love offerings for sharing, please send them to us. 

The world needs enlightened ones like you to bring healing to the world. 

This glass bead comes to us from Alexandra and Wil liam.

Bryan Lynch sends us a timely excerpt from Rudolf Steiner, Materialism and the Task of Anthroposophy, (1921 Dornach), Anthroposophic Press, 1987, pp:260-264

...a very important event occurred at the end of the 70's of the 19 th century... now a time is beginning when beings who are not human are coming down to Earth from cosmic regions beyond. These beings are not human but depend for the further development of their existence on coming to Earth and on entering here into relationships with men. Thus, ...heavenly beings are seeking to enter this Earth existence.

Heavenly beings are already here in our Earth existence. And it is thanks to the fact that beings from beyond the Earth are bringing messages down into this Earthly existence that it is at all possible to have a comprehensive spiritual science available today.

...however, how does the human race behave? ...the human behaves in a cosmically rude way toward the beings who are appearing from the cosmos on Earth, albeit, slowly to begin with. Humanity takes no notice of them, ignores them. It is this that will lead the Earth into increasingly tragic conditions. For in the course of the next few centuries, more and more spirit beings will move among us whose language we ought to understand.

... Initially, these were beings dwelling in the sphere between the Moon and Mercury.

...Spirit beings are seeking to come down into Earth existence and must be received. Upheaval upon upheaval will ensue, and Earth existence will at length arrive at social chaos if these beings descended and human existence were to consist only of opposition against them (via the unredeemed shadowy intellect). For these beings wish to be nothing less than the advance guard of what will happen to Earth existence when the Moon reunites with the Earth (in the 8 th millennium A.D.).

...The beings I have spoken about will descend gradually to the Earth. ...Vulcan supermen, Venus supermen, Mercury supermen, Sun supermen, and so on will unite themselves with Earth existence. Yet, if human beings persist in their opposition to them. this Earth existence will pass over into chaos in the course of the next few thousand years. People will indeed be capable of developing their intellect in an automatic way; it can develop even in the midst of barbaric conditions. The fullness of human potential, however, will not be included in this intellect and people will have no relationship to the beings who wish graciously to come down to them into earthly life.

All the beings presently conceived so incorrectly in people's thoughts - incorrectly because the mere shadow intellect can only conceive of the mineral, the crudely material element, be it in the mineral, plant, animal or even human kingdom - these thoughts of human beings that have no reality all of a sudden will become realities when the Moon and the Earth will unite again. From the Earth there will spring forth a horrible brood of beings. In character they will be in between the mineral and plant kingdoms. They will be beings resembling automatons, with an over abundant intellect of great intensity.

Along with this development, which will spread over the Earth, the latter will be covered as if by a network or web of ghastly spiders possessing tremendous wisdom. Yet their organization will not even reach up to the level of plants. They will be horrible spiders who will be entangled with one another. In their outward movements they will imitate everything human beings have invented with their shadowy intellect which did not allow itself to be stimulated by what is to come through new Imaginations and through spiritual science in general. 

... the Earth will be covered with hideous mineral-plant-like spiders that intertwine with one another most cleverly but in a frighteningly evil manner. To the extent that human beings have not redeemed their intellect through Imaginations, they will have to unite their being, not with the entities who are seeking to descend since the last third of the nineteenth century, but instead with these spider creatures.

You see, this is something that is very much a reality of Earth humanity's evolution. It is known today by a large number of those human beings who hold mankind back from receiving spiritual scientific knowledge. For there are those who are actually conscious allies of this spidery entangling of human Earth existence. Today, we must no longer recoil from descriptions such as these.

The game is an abstract synthesis of all arts and sciences. It proceeds by players making deep connections between seemingly unrelated topics. 

It is "a kind of synthesis of human learning" in which themes, such as a musical phrase or a philosophical thought, are stated.

 As the game progresses, associations between the themes become deeper and more varied. 

The game uses artistic forms, and eventually cultural symbols. 

Themes are developed almost as a poet would, and building variations as a composer. 

It was a way of symbolizing music and of building broad insights into the world.

We enjoy glass beads from Freedom Philosophy. 

We love the approachable way he presents the Philosophy of Freedom and makes the topic relevant for today's truth unfolding.
