Today it feels like it’s time to begin this process of sharing what I have discovered about the Sacred Landscape Temple of Glastonbury in the south west of Britain.
There are many aspects and layers to these Mysteries, many layers of Glastonbury’s convoluted History and Avalon’s ancient Legends blending with the Here and Now in ways which are purposefully designed to baffle the logical mind. The Divine intention is to provoke an opening or bypassing of the rational mind so that the Timeless may be glimpsed.
This opening stimulates the experience of personal knowing, the direct perception or Gnosis that there really is a ‘something else’ to Life. This inner knowing, if honoured and pursued, magically stimulates the Quest, the inner processes of questioning blending with the outer processes of searching for more clues. And this is the ‘magic’, the dynamic between inner and outer which leads to further personal experiences of the mysterious Essence of Being that we still call the Holy Grail.
Over 20 years or so I read lots of books in my efforts to understand what was making Glastonbury such an extra-ordinary place. I can see now that this was a preparation for the event which was to break open the veil which was blocking my direct knowing of the Other-world, the realms of spiritual consciousness and Being which are primarily energetic rather than physical.
In my reading of Glastonbury’s Myths and Legends, I had created a framework for understanding what I was being shown. After my ‘opening’, I began to write poetry and paint because these were the easiest ways of communicating what I was seeing and feeling. It felt as though I was suddenly able to tune into the Bardic Realms of Avalon’s ancient Druids and could access their wisdom.
It was as though all those Druid Teachings were recorded as an underground hum in the Landscape and I had discovered how to hear them. I also began to remember my Past Life experiences of living in Avalon/Glastonbury at various times before. Another series of layers revealed the real history of the First Church which was once sited on the land which is now the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey.
Then I began to make a series of Collages which were my avenue to a greater understanding of the timeless Mysteries of Mary Magdalene and The Goddess Isis. Slowly, slowly, I began to comprehend what I was being shown and now it time to share it…..
