I found this beautiful story about the true meaning of the holy grail and I instantly felt it needed to be shared, as it triggered some remembrance in me. Hopefully it will have the same effect on you.
” Way, way back in time, when the dinosaurs roamed, and human life was scarce, and the winters were cold, the People of the Earth would find shelter and warmth within caves or under over-hanging rocks.
One dark winter, while they huddled together for warmth, a great light appeared within the darkness and a being appeared with hair like the sun, shining eyes like the water in a lake, and skin like snow. The people of the Earth looked from one to another. They had never seen such as this before, and their brown eyes grew large in wonder.And so the man of the Sun stayed and spent a season with them. He shared their fire, warmed their hearts, joined with their women and his story became woven into theirs. Over this season they learnt many things, and by their sharing, a new element was born — LOVE — and this feeling of love was held and cradled within their hearts and its container became the Holy Grail. The memory of this Chalice, this Holy Grail, from that point in time, became part of the DNA of this tribe of the Human race.
When it was time for the man of the Sun to return to his home, the People of the Earth suffered great distress and pain from his parting. Even the unborn children felt their mothers pain. Felt her tears, and felt the racking of her body as she sobbed. And as the moon turned, and the spring dawned, a new race of children were born who looked nothing like their ancestors and yet, they were loved heart and soul, for the people of the tribe could see in their eyes, the Man, the Angel, the God, who had blessed them with the knowledge of the Heart…Love. And yet the People of the Earth were not content. They yearned for their lost love, and the children yearned for their father whom they had never known. They searched every face, looking for the image of the stranger spoken of around the fires at the turning of the seasons, and their hearts carried the loss and yearning through the generations from the beginning of time until now.
Little did they know that the Chalice of Love had been formed and held within their hearts by the union of Spirit and Matter through the Mothers of their own People.The People of the Earth. Generations passed and the People continued to project their love and yearning out, away from their own kind, away from their centre, never recognising that it was THEY, the People of the Earth, who were the true custodians of the Grail.
"The Holy Grail" by Alex Grey
Down through the generations the children of the children multiplied, and within them they held the seed of Love. Those who carried the Chalice within were recognizable by their light and their love of humanity. The sons and daughters spread out over the world and married into tribes from far and wide. Many of the generations of children that followed inherited the seed through their blood, and these children KNEW their destiny and held this great chalice within as a precious jewel.
Through time, as the sons and daughters married into tribes from far lands…their offspring became the children of Enoch, of Noah, of Abraham, of Isaac, of Judah, of Helenus of Troy, and so……on, and throughout history the seed of the Chalice spread. At times when the memory in the blood became thin, two, from the scattered race of men and women sharing same bloodline, were drawn together and the Chalice was refilled, and a child was born with the pure essence of Divine Love.
Throughout History there have been great men and women who have embodied the true meaning of this Chalice. They have been known by their great love for humanity. Today the Earth is in dire need of those who carry the Chalice within to recognise that it is they, the People of the Earth, who are the true custodians of the Chalice, and that it is the Earth, or Gaia, who is the Heart Centre of the Universe. Together, blending Spirit and Matter, we the People of the Earth can fill the Holy Grail and make a stand for Love.
The time for the reunion of the blood line is on us.
INDICATION: The time is right to find those of your bloodline. You will know them not by their name, or the colour of their skins, but by their deeds, and by the light that shines in their eyes and the Love that flows from their hearts. “
