The search for the Holy Grail is one of the most enduring spiritual legends and also the subject of one of my favourite films Monty Python and the Holy Grail . As I understand the tale, it was the cup which Jesus used at the Last Supper and became famous through the Arthurian legends and the quest by the Knights of the Round Table for the Holy Grail but over the years it has become a symbol for the spiritual search .
There is something inside which compels us to search for the intangible, which we feel is missing from us . We feel that if we could just find this elusive something, we would then be complete . The outside world glitters with material wonders and we look to this to fill the hole . Money, relationships and addictions are some of the false idols we use, but even these eventually let us down but we keep on searching .
All this searching is pointless . There is nothing to find outside of us – Life is the Holy Grail and you are Life . The world is fine and so is everything within it . Nothing needs changing or adding to and no part of Life is better than another . You are what you have been searching for and so is everyone else . It may be hard to stomach but your worse enemy is perfect and so are you . You are the end of the search for the Holy Grail .
