RE: [ufodiscussion] The Nature Of The Holy Grail
- What a wild goose chase they have led you all on... Drinking blood does not
make you one with it. It does not make you of that blood line. This is like
selling sci fi movies on blood sucking bats, people love to be scared like
that, it gets their own blood flowing it seems. He actually thinks that you
can read it all on the internet...lol The truth is that even if, big if, it
was on the internet and you read it, unless your spirit felt you were ready
to understand it, you would never get it...;-)

The Nature of the Holy Grail by Sol Aris
Some time ago I became involved in some research which can be loosely
termed "the Quest for the Holy Grail". For a long time I put off seriously
considering what the Grail really is, because the short answer to that is
that Im still not really sure. So I knocked together this little monogram
with the various most commonly encountered possibilities, from which we can
choose what we like best.
Before proceeding, we should remember that the search for the Grail has
often been viewed as being strictly symbolic for our general Thirst for
Enlightenment. We have always sought a better understanding of the forces
that control us, and many have said that the Grail is not an artifact at
all, but only symbolizes the knowledge we can attain. That explanation
definitely fits in my case, because while researching this material Ive
already learned more than I even thought possible. And yet I feel theres
more to it than mere symbolism.
The Holy Grail has traditionally been held by the public to be the cup
from which Jesus shared the wine with his disciples during the Last Supper.
And later Joseph of Arimathea used the same vessel to catch the blood of
Jesus from the cross. This view got wide acclaim twenty years ago in the
movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark, part III", where this old cup of Jesus is
found at the end by Indiana Jones in the ancient cave city of Petra in
But serious researchers of the Grail have known since earliest times that
the Grail is no simple cup, or in fact probably not any single artifact at
all. In the past it was convenient for Alchemists and scholars of the Hidden
Arts to have everyone believe that the Grail was merely a holy relic, the
Cup which Jesus used. At the same time, they were looking for the "real
Grail", which they knew to be something else entirely.
The fact that today anyone can easily find out about the Grail not being a
mere drinking cup, is just another indication that we live in a time when
all the ancient secrets are being revealed. What Medieval Alchemists had to
spend their whole lives studying is now available at the push of a button,
if one looks for the right keywords.
Some early myths, like the medieval epic about Percival/Parsifal, link the
Grail with other Christian relics, such as the Spear of Longinus, with which
the Roman soldier reportedly pierced Jesus during the crucifixion, as well
as various "pieces of the True Cross", and items like the Shroud of Turin.
The prevalence of tales about such relics is understandable during the time
of the Crusades, when many people where bringing home artifacts from the
Possessing special Holy Relics would obviously lend importance and an
image of power to their owners. But the Grail which the Knights Templar
found seems to have done more than just lend them prestige in name. Nine
poor knights sworn to poverty and owning only one change of clothes each,
dug for a couple of decades under the remains of Solomons Temple. They
found "something" and brought it to Europe, and subsequently became for two
centuries one of the most powerful organizations Medieval Europe knew, their
wealth and influence rivaling that of the Vatican itself. What had they
found that suddenly changed them so? Probably no mere cup, or spear-tip, or
piece of wood.
According to Dan Browns "The Da Vinci Code" and the earlier works of
Lincoln/Baigent/Lee and others on which it was based, the Grail is the
Bloodline and Offspring of Jesus Christ, venerated in early Europe through
the worship of Mary Magdalene who had arrived in Gaul with Jesus child. The
Grail is a Chalice, which is a symbol for the womb of Mary and the Bloodline
of Jesus the man, who was a descendant of King David according to the New
This legend holds that there was an actual Physical Grail connected with
this as well, which was some sort of a treasure trove that the Knights
Templar found under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the early Crusades,
kept it in France until early 1300s, and then hid it in the Roslyn Chapel
in Scotland. These were "several caskets" containing documents which,
according to those sources, provided an "unarguable proof" for Jesus having
fathered children, who later became the Merovingian Kings. The actual bones
of Mary Magdalene (who had died in France, but according to some accounts
was later buried in Palestine) were added to this store, and comprised the
lot taken to Roslyn.
I generally buy the arguments about the Merovingian bloodline of Jesus and
Mary, but I dont believe that this is the entirety of the Grail. Fully
accepting this theory turns the Grail into a strictly Christian religious
story, what would make it largely unimportant for most people alive today.
The majority of the world is not Christian, and even in the "Christian
countries" most people would call themselves "secular" in this age. So
although the theory of Jesus having direct descendants is very intriguing to
play around with, it would not make such a big difference for most if such a
descendant was *proven* to be alive today. In our technocratic society
people simply no longer care about such things as much as they used to, and
the revelation would not be nearly as shattering as the hype for the Da
Vinci movie makes it out to be.
I feel it stands to reason therefore, that the Real Grail should be
something much more bombastic than that, something that even in todays
world would make everyone take notice.
Laurence Gardner takes the Merovingian Bloodline notion further, and
contends that the sacred chalice of Mary Magdalene is a much later meaning
ascribed to the Grail. Whereas the Original Grail was the actual "secret
food of the Gods", which he calls Star-Fire. He claims that the "bloodline
of Jesus" is important not only because Jesus is considered the Messiah by
some people, but because the earlier Davidic line was weaned on the Blood of
the Annunaki, the actual menstrual blood of the Annunaki females, who were
responsible for giving birth to the first human hybrids. It sounds gruesome,
but allegedly this blood had certain qualities which can help improve
current human DNA in many ways.
Although widely dismissed as a quack by serious writers on both sides of
the academic spectrum, Gardners "Star Fire" series is a most fascinating
read, and he accepts many of Sitchins ideas about the Annunaki as fact
Philip Gardiner and Gary Osborn, who disagree with most of Gardners
findings, have produced another compelling and well-researched theory,
according to which the ancient mages perpetuated their knowledge through
secret brotherhoods, whose symbols consistently appear as snake-related
imagery in the folklore and art of many cultures. The two researchers
postulate that medicine and healing formed an important part of that
tradition, and that the Grail is seen as primarily a system of potions which
these people used to perpetuate their life, health and genes.
Whatever ingredients formed this ancient Elixir of Life, the "Holy Grail"
were looking for today may well contain the exact chemical formula for
duplicating it. The Grail as the bearer of the original Annunaki (or
"Shining Ones", as Gardiner and Osborn call them) blood or chemistry is an
altogether more universal idea and thus seems more fitting for this Great
Quest, but theres still more.
Graham Hancock has put forward a very strong case that the Holy Grail of
Templars is actually the old Ark of the Covenant, which the Hebrews made in
the desert during the Exodus, and which was kept in Solomons Temple in
Jerusalem up to a certain time
The history of the search for the Ark is long and convoluted, and is
eloquently summarized in many books, so I wont go into it. Hancock and
other authors trace the Arks path from the Jerusalem temple through
Elephantine Island on the Nile in Egypt to Axum in Ethiopia, or to places
like Rennes de Chateau in France and Roslyn, Scotland.
(By the way, if anyones interested, theres an absolutely amazing story
these days about one Ron Wyatt who found the Ark a few years ago, buried in
Jeremiahs Grotto near the Old City of Jerusalem. I dont know quite what to
make of it, the documentation is too extensive for it to be a complete fake.
This is the same guy who found Noahs Ark on Mount Ararat earlier.)
I myself buy into Sitchins (and Gardners) idea that the Original Ark was
a communication device between humans and Annunaki. The wandering Hebrews
did not have a permanent Ziggurat Temple such as in Egypt or Babylon, where
their God (in fact an "Annunaki" or space-traveler) would ordinarily reside
in the city. Instead they were given the plans to build a "mobile
communicator", which they could use to call their God from anywhere.
The original Ark is described as giving off some sort of a dangerous
radiation, whether familiar to our science today or not, but definitely
harmful for people who were not properly protected. The book of Exodus lists
an extensive garb which special people had to wear before approaching the
Ark. Theres even a story of Aarons own sons who were not properly attired
near the ark, then got ill and died as a result.
The Grail as the Ark of the Covenant is a much more likely theory, because
the Ark would surely be a powerful "magical" device, which couldve been
somehow responsible for the sudden rise to power of the Knights Templar in
Europe. If it were a radioactive machine of some sort, a product of an
advance science, it could surely command respect from the average Medieval
And yet the Ark of the Covenant is also a relatively "new" thing in the
Middle East, because it was made only during the Exodus, which took place
around 1300-1500 BC, depending on which theory you follow. ;;At that time
the civilizations of Sumer and Egypt had already amassed all their Great
Secrets, which were trying to uncover today.
The early Hebrews themselves were heirs to that ancient legacy of Arcane
Knowledge. In those days, the Ark had significance only for them, and if
found today it would be meaningful only to a relatively small number of
Jewish and Christian Fundamentalist believers, and archeologists. Whereas
once again, I would like to see the "Holy Grail" having a more universal
value for all of humanity and not for a select clique, even a large one.
It seems to me that the Real Grail would have to be something of entirely
mind-shattering proportions. It should be the ultimate legacy for Mankind in
these Latter Days.
It is this: an unarguable proof that God the Creator of the Universe is
not the same God who is the Creator of Man.
See, God the Creator of the Universe is not the kindly grey-haired man
with the flowing beard from Michelangelos paintings. Instead, "It" is a
Formless Void, the Endless Tao, Vonneguts "Universal Will To Become", or
whatever name of such nature that you happen to like. Its not a being at
all, it has no shape, and nobody you can call by a personal name.
Whereas "God the Creator of Mankind" were beings that the Sumerians had
called "Annunaki" and the ancient Egyptians "Neter" - travelers from other
stars who came to Earth to mine some minerals, and needed some efficient and
low-paid workers for this. For this purpose, they "created" the species Homo
Sapiens, us, by splicing their genes onto an advanced species of ape already
extant on Earth at that time, and known to us today as "Homo Erectus", the
This process, as well as the subsequent teaching of "civilization" to the
thusly evolved primitives, was carried out by one of the Annunaki named
Enki. His early symbol was the intertwined snakes, which symbolized the
double-helix structure of our DNA, comprised of one "human" and one
"Annunaki" strand. This symbol later came to be known as the Caduceus, the
staff of Enki in his new guise as Hermes.
Before becoming Hermes, Enki was known as Thoth in ancient Egypt (I
actually like to spell it Toth, as its easier to pronounce), and he wrote
down all of his knowledge in a series of "instruction manuals", which the
mysteries say are buried in the caverns under the Sphinx on the Giza
Plateau. This body of work has been referred to by some as the Emerald
Tablets of Toth, but it has other names.
I feel that "the Grail" which the Templars found is nothing short of some
of those manuals, which were previously in the possession of King Solomon,
who hid them under the Temple. The manuals would contain all the scientific
knowledge available to a star-faring race, and would probably go far beyond
what we know today, to say nothing of the science known in Solomons day or
in Medieval Europe.
If these "manuals" were written in a way for a layman to understand, the
possession of such knowledge could give anyone power beyond our imagination,
and thats exactly what the Knights Templar got. Its also what King Solomon
had, and hence all the stories about his control over "Genies" and other
"principalities". It was merely scientific control over certain forces of
nature, which he attained by following the instructions in the manuals.
So, the bottom line: Ive come to believe that the "Holy Grail" is a
series of instruction books, written by Toth/Enki/Hermes himself. They are
written in such a manner or on such a media, sos to leave no doubt as to
their extraterrestrial origin. Therefore, their find would also be proof of
