|In The Light Of Truth: The Holy Grail. by GRAILMESSAGE: 8:31am On Feb 28|
Manifold are the interpretations of the legends which exist about the Holy Grail. The most serious
scholars and investigators have occupied themselves with this mystery. Much of their work has high
moral value, but it all contains one great fault, i.e. the fact that they have built only from the earth
upwards, while the essential thing, the ray of light from above, which alone could bring life and
enlightenment, is missing. All that strives from below upwards must come to a halt at the boundary line
of the material plane, even if it were granted attainment to the greatest possible heights. In most cases,
however, barely half this road can be covered even under the most favorable conditions. Yet how great is
the distance still from there to the real recognition of the Holy Grail!
This non-attainability is eventually felt by investigators. As a result they try to regard the Grail purely
as the symbolic expression of an idea, so as to give it the high place they quite rightly feel is necessary for
this concept. But in so doing they actually go backwards, not forwards. Downwards instead of upwards.
They deviate from the right way, which is already contained to some extent in the legends. These legends
alone give a faint sense of the truth, albeit only a very faint one, because the lofty inspirations and
visionary pictures of the poets were pressed into far too earthly a concept through the collaboration of the
intellect during transmission. To the renderings of what their spirits received they imparted images of
their contemporary earthly surroundings, so as to make the meaning of the legends more understandable
to people. In this, however, they did not succeed because they themselves failed to come close to the
essence of the truth.
Thus from the very outset the subsequent research and investigation was founded upon shaky ground,
and any success was bound to be very limited. Therefore it is not surprising that finally only the thought
of something purely symbolic remained, and redemption through the Grail was transferred to every man’s
The existing interpretations are not without great moral value, but they cannot claim to be an
explanation of the legends, much less an approach to the truth about the Holy Grail.
Nor is the Holy Grail the vessel which the Son of God used during His last meal with His Disciples at
the end of His mission on earth, and in which His blood was caught at the cross. This vessel is a sacred
reminder of the Son of God’s sublime work of redemption, but it is not the Holy Grail of which the poets
of the legends were divinely gifted to sing praises. These legends have been misunderstood by mankind.
They were meant to be promises from the Highest Heights, the fulfillment of which mankind is to
anticipate! Had they been interpreted as such, surely another way would have long since been found to
take the investigations still further than has been done until now. As it was, however, all the
interpretations had finally to come to a dead end because a full and complete solution could never be
reached, since due to the false conceptions of the past, all the investigations started on a wrong basis from
the very beginning. — —
No human spirit, even in its final greatest perfection and immortality, will ever be able to face the
Holy Grail Itself! It is for this reason that no detailed tidings about It can ever extend from there
earthward into the World of Matter, unless a Messenger is sent from there. Thus the Holy Grail will
remain a mystery to the human spirit for all eternity.
Man should keep to what he can grasp spiritually and, above all, he should try to fulfill and develop
to its most noble state of perfection that which lies within his power. Unfortunately, however, he is only
too anxious always to reach out far beyond these limits without developing his essential abilities, whereby
he is guilty of committing negligence which prevents him from even reaching what he otherwise could,
while he can never attain the goal of his desires anyway. He thus deprives himself of the most beautiful
and sublime part of his true being with the result that he completely fails to fulfill the purpose of his
existence. — — —
Parsifal is a great promise. The defects and errors which the poets have added to the legends through
their too earthly way of thinking distort the true essence of this figure. Parsifal is identical with the Son of
Man, Whose coming the Son of God Himself promised. *(Lecture No. 10: The Son of God and the Son of Man)
As a Divine Messenger, with His spiritual eyes blindfolded, He will have to go through the most bitter
hardships on earth, as man among men. After a certain time, freed from this blindfold, He must recognize His origin and therewith Himself, as well as clearly see His mission. This mission will also bring
redemption to mankind who are seriously seeking, and goes hand in hand with a severe Judgment. For
this purpose, however, we cannot assume just any human being, much less can we see the possible
experiences of many people, or even of all of the people, but only a very specific, specially chosen Envoy
will bear these possibilities within him.
The immutable lawfulness of Divine Will decrees that everything, after it has completed its cycle of
development and reached its highest state of perfection, may return to the starting point of its original
substance, but never beyond it. This also applies the human spirit. It originates from the Sphere of
Spiritual Substantiality, to which it may return as a conscious spirit in substantiate form if, after its course
through the World of Matter, it has achieved its highest state of perfection and attained living purity. In
the best of cases, its path may lead it to the forecourt of the Grail Castle which stands at the highest point
in Spiritual-Substantiality and forms the gateway to the steps of the throne, on which the source of all
being, God the Father in His Divine Unsubstantiality, dons at times the cloak of Divine Substantiality, i.e.
takes on form. No spiritual-substantial entity, however sublime, pure and radiant, can cross the boundary
line into the Divine Sphere. The boundary line and the possibility of crossing it, here, as in the spheres or
planes of material Creation, is, in the nature of things, simply a matter of the difference between the
The highest and most sublime is God Himself in His Divine Unsubstantiality. Next, and somewhat
lower, there is the sphere of Spiritual-Substantiality. Both are eternal. Adjacent to this, going lower and
lower, there follows the material work of Creation beginning with the gaseous Fine-Materiality which,
becoming denser and denser in descending planes or spheres down to the World of Gross Matter,
eventually becomes visible to mankind. The Fine-material part within the World of Matter is what men
call the beyond. That which is beyond their earthly or physical capacity to see. Both, however, belong to
the Work of Creation and are not eternal with regard to their form, but subject to change for the purpose
of renewal and regeneration.
The Castle of the Grail stands at the summit of the eternal Sphere of Spiritual Substantiality,
spiritually visible and tangible, because it is still of the same species of spiritual substantiality. This Grail
Castle contains a Sanctuary which lies on the outermost border adjacent to the Divine Sphere, and is thus
still more ethereal than the rest of spiritual substantiality. In this Sanctuary, as a pledge of the eternal
Goodness of God the Father, as a symbol of His Purest Divine Love, and as the direct point of origin from
which Divine Power issues: the Holy Grail!
In this chalice, the contents swirl and surge unceasingly, like red blood, without ever overflowing.
Enveloped as it is in the most Luminous Light, only the purest of all spirits in the Realm of Spiritual
Substantiality are granted permission to look into this Light. These are the Guardians of the Holy Grail!
When the legends speak of the purest of men being appointed to become Guardians of the Grail, then this
is a point which the gifted poet put into all too earthly terms, because he was unable to express himself
differently. No human spirit can enter this holy Sanctuary. Even in its most perfect state of spiritual
substantiality, after having returned from its wanderings through the World of Matter, it is still not so
etherealized as to be able to cross this threshold, i.e., the boundary line to this Sanctuary. Even in its
highest state of perfection in Substantiality it is still too dense to do so. However, still further etherization
would be equivalent to its complete disintegration or combustion, because the origin of its nature does not
lend itself to assuming even greater radiance and luminosity, thus becoming still more etherized. It is
unable to tolerate it.
The Guardians of the Grail are Eternal Pure Spiritual Beings, who never were human beings, the
highest of all in the Realm of Spiritual Substantiality. However, they require Divine Unsubstantiate
Power, are dependent upon It, as everything is dependent on Divine Unsubstantiality, the Source of all
Power, God the Father.
From time to time on the Day of the Holy Dove, the Dove appears above the Chalice as a renewed
token of the unalterable Divine Love of the Father. It is the hour of communion which brings about the
renewal of power. The Guardians of the Grail receive it in humble devotion and are then able to transmit
this miraculous power.
The existence of the whole Creation depends on this!
It is the moment in which the Love of the Creator flows forth radiantly in the Temple of the Holy Grail, bringing new life and a new urge to create, which pulsates downwards and is disseminated
throughout the entire Universe. A tremor courses throughout all the spheres, a sacred thrill of expectant
joy and of great happiness. Only the spirit of earth-man still stands aside, without intuitively sensing what
is happening particularly to him at that moment, what an immeasurable gift he receives in such dull-
witted manner, because the limitations he imposed upon himself through his intellect no longer permit
him to grasp such greatness.
It is the Life-giving moment for the entire Creation!
It is the necessary, ever-recurring confirmation of the Covenant between the Creator and His Work.
Should this supply ever be cut off, should it ever fail to occur, all that exists would inevitably slowly dry
up, age and disintegrate. It would be the end of all days, and only God Himself would remain, as it was in
the beginning! Because He alone is Life.
This process is conveyed in the legend. In the description of the aging of the Knights of the Grail,
during the time in which Amfortas no longer reveals the Grail until the hour in which Parsifal appears as
King of the Grail, reference is even made to how everything must age and decay if the Day of the Holy
Dove, the “unveiling” of the Grail, does not recur.
Man should cease to regard the Holy Grail as only something intangible, for It really exists! The
human spirit, however, owing to its nature, can never behold It. But the blessing streaming from It, which
can be and is being passed on by the Guardians of the Grail, can be received and enjoyed by human
spirits. In this sense some of the interpretations cannot be called wrong, as long as they do not try to draw
the Holy Grail Itself into their explanations. They are correct, and yet again they are not.
The appearance of the Dove on the special Day of the Holy Dove indicates the sending of the Holy
Spirit on each occasion; for this Dove stands in very close connection with Him. But this is something
which the human spirit is only able to grasp figuratively, because by the very nature of things, even if he
has attained to the highest perfection, he can really only think, know and perceive intuitively up to the
point whence he himself came, i.e., to the species homogeneous to the purest nature of his origin. This is
the eternal Realm of Pure-Spiritual-Substantiality. Even in his thoughts he will never be able to cross this
boundary. Nor can he ever grasp anything beyond it. This is so self-evident, so logical and simple, that
every human being can follow this train of thought.
For this reason, whatever is beyond this boundary will and must forever remain a mystery to
Every man, therefore lives under a delusion, when he imagines that he bears God within himself or
that he is himself Divine, or can become so. He bears Pure-Spirituality within himself, but nothing of the
Divine. And therein lies an unbridgeable difference. He is a creature, not part of the Creator, as so many
try to convince themselves. Man is and remains a creature, and will never be able to become master.
Thus it is wrong when it is explained that the human spirit issues from God the Father Himself and
returns to Him. The origin of man lies in the Realm of Spiritual Substantiality, not in the Divine
Unsubstantiate. Therefore, even if he has attained perfection, he can return only to the Sphere of Spiritual
Substantiality. It is right to say that the human spirit originates from the Kingdom of God and therefore
can, after reaching perfection, return to the Kingdom of God, but not to God Himself. The Kingdom of
God is Pure-Spiritual-Substantiality.
The Son of God became the mediator between the Divine-Unsubstantiality and Pure-Spiritual-
Substantiality. He crosses from Divine-Unsubstantiality over to Spiritual-Substantiality, just as once He
came into the world of matter. The coming of the Son of Man brings on the consummation of the High
Divine mission of the Son of God. Following the fulfillment, the Son of God will return wholly into
Divine-Unsubstantiality, while the Son of Man will take on the function of mediator in His stead, thus
becoming the leader of the guardians of the Holy Grail, the King of the Grail, guardian of the Holy
Then the Son of Man will be the alpha and the omega for the human spirit because He is the
beginning and the end for the capacity of human spirits to comprehend; because He is capable of crossing
over the boundary to Divine-Unsubstantiality and thereby to overlook everything.
