In the third lecture in the series The Quest for Spiritual Paths, Douglas Gabriel discusses the blood relics […]
The Hidden History of the Grail Queens illuminates the primary importance of the Maidens of Wells and the descent of Grail Queens from the Mother of Jesus to the Spanish infantado queens who possessed and guarded the holy blood relics – the grails of the Christians. The essential element of the Holy Lance of Longinus and its provenance is compared to a comprehension historical study of all known associations with the “Spear of Destiny” that pierced the side of Jesus; spear and grail must join together to complete the procession of the Holy Grail.
The fiery spear of Michael is a spiritual tool that is used to hold Lucifer (dragon) at bay so that his evil might be changed to good. This type of outcome makes the spear and sword of Michael into a spiritual weapon that vanquishes evil and leads the battle for the good. But to apply that type of spiritual logic to the spear that pierced the side of Jesus on the cross is difficult for some to understand.
To grow a spiritual ladder upon which to climb out of the darkness and into the light, one must rarify the spirit through morality training and higher thoughts. At the same time, the physiological effects that accompany this transcendence are wondrous. In anthroposophy, the process by which the spiritual journey is expressed within our body is known as the etherization of the blood, or the earthly and cosmic nutrition stream.
Here’s how it happened. Not long after the first Star Wars movie came out, I was working in the Waldorf bookstore.My boss and mentor, Werner Glas, stuck his head in the doorway and said, “Douglas, a friend of Marcia Lucas is on the phone and she has too many questions for me to handle. Would you please speak with her and answer all of her questions?”
I met Marcia once and worked with her and a group of three or four other Waldorf teachers who were in training at the Waldorf Institute in Detroit, Michigan. I am not sure of the exact dates, but I believe it was either late in 1974 or early in 1975. Between six months to one year after working with Marcia, I was working at the Waldorf Institute bookstore when I received a phone call from Kathleen Kennedy. At the time, I did not know her Hollywood connection. I thought she was a student interested in attending the Waldorf Institute. I just knew in passing that she knew Marcia Lucas.
