Test 1 12 20

  1. 1. The Holy Grail According to legends, the Holy Grail was the cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper. That contact supposedly imbued it with divine powers.
  2. 2. But are those legends correct? Is the “Grail” really the cup or chalice of the Last Supper? Or were the legends of the Grail as a physical object --- the cup or chalice --- part of a 2,000 year-old “disinformation” campaign?
  3. 3. A pair of recent best-sellers claim that the “Grail” was a coded reference to the womb of Mary Magdalene , supposedly carrying the child of Jesus. That made for a good read. But there is little credible evidence to support the thesis.
  4. 4. There is still another possibility. Perhaps the true Grail is neither a cup nor a bloodline.
  5. 5. Perhaps the Grail stories WERE part of a centuries-old “disinformation” campaign to distract from the deeper truth of the Grail.
  6. 6. What if the Grail is not where we’ve been looking? What if the Grail is . . . . . . HIDDEN WITHIN US?
  7. 7. What if the Grail is not where we’ve been looking? What if the Grail is . . . . . . HIDDEN WITHIN US?
  8. 8. But if the “Grail” is not the cup of the Last Supper, and if the Grail is not the womb of Mary Magdalene (and hence the supposed bloodline of Jesus), then what really IS what we think of as the Holy Grail?
  9. 9. There is a THIRD possibility: Perhaps the Grail stories WERE part of a centuries-old “disinformation” campaign to distract from the deeper truth of the Grail.
  10. 10. What if the Grail legends were “DECOYS to distract the uninitiated or unworthy into a search for something physical [a cup] when in fact the core of the true Grail was a coded reference to the HIDDEN POTENTIALS OF THE HUMAN MIND?”
  11. 11. The old Grail legends speak of two main “Guardians of the Grail:” • the Cathars, a peaceful sect centered in the Pyrenees Mountains of Southern France, and, • the Knights Templar, a still-mysterious order of warrior-monks.
  12. 12. Both were “Gnostic Christians” --- that is, they believed in “Gnosis,” the ability of the individual to commune directly with the Divine, without the intervention of clergy. In addition to being alleged Guardians of the Grail, the Cathars and Templars shared other key elements: Both had roots in the Holy Land.
  13. 13. And, finally, both groups were declared heretics and destroyed within less than a century. Both groups were envied for their supposed ability to generate “unlimited wealth,” allegedly using occult powers.
  14. 14. IF it was true that the Cathars and then the Templars were Guardians of the Grail, then two questions remain unanswered: 1. What happened to the Grail after those Guardians were destroyed? 2. For that matter, What IS the Grail?
