I am continually reminded of how “being humble” is one of the most important qualities to carry in myself (and I have not been a humble person most of my life!) There seem to be so many false leaders in the spiritual community that wield their false authority on innocent people rather than enabling people to come to their own authority in their own way.
I am beginning to understand more deeply the story of Parcival. It is listening for “the Grail question”, the question that asks the person to reveal what it is that is ailing the soul. We live in a world where the question “What ails you” can no longer be literally spoken, at least most of the time. Instead, it seems to require creating that place of safety that implicitly asks “what ails you”, in which a person in freedom can come to reveal their soul sickness on their own accord, and find the path that enables them to heal themselves.
