The Holy Grail is a central symbol known up through time under different names.
The Holy Grail
The grail is symbolized with the triangle pointing down, it’s the microcosm we develop in. Its the lower three hierarchies known as angels, archangels and archai in the Christian terminology.
Here more traditions are combined into one drawing. The ego is the old center of the body from when we were animals, here symbolized with a caterpillar. The day the ego accepts the new center, the ‘I’ of the soul, as a co-worker and not an enemy, the caterpillar dies and resurrects into a butterfly.
In the drawing we have the 4 lower bodies of man. Here the
ages the bodies typically are developed are written for each period. Each period corresponds to a chakra. After 28 we begin developing the higher bodies, the higher chakras.
The grail goes long back, the following picture is an example from a vast Cetho Temple complex that is located on the western slopes of Lawu Mountain, precisely in Gumeng Village, Jenawi District, Karanganyar Regency, Central Java Province.
The Lingga Yoni have strong similarities with the Ankh, the Tree of Life and the Grail, all describing the same reality.
The Lingga Yoni shown in the upper pictures look very much like a chalice when seen from the bottom, but seen from the side the symbolism behind the chalice is more clear. The chalice top is the uterus from where the new universe will grow, fructified by the old spiritual world symbolized by the stalk of the chalice.
Kali is also connected to the lower triangle, the Grail is symbol for the feminine.
In the lower and middle right pictures the Lingga Yoni looks like a chalice with the Sun as the hostie.
Artemis gives prana to all living beings in the physical world, ie that have an etheric body. The Grail is the Life Force behind the created.
From Anna May Triptychon where Joseph of Arimathea fils the Grail
with the blood coming from Jesus.
Artemis symbolizes the Mother, the creator of mankind, but the mother is hidden in most religions, as it was the masculine power that was needed to get man down into the physical. In this figure Apollo, the sun god, is shown hiding the moon god Artemis, mother nature, but she is the main power behind of our development.
Here a number of forms we know the Grail, including the human soul, up left:
The Crown Chakra is also the chalice of the etheric world in which we as physical being lie, as an inverted plant.
This is maybe the most important video in our time, he is pinpointing the main problem of materialism in a very practical and usable way.
In many ways the life before the seventies was in this way, although the state had made life somewhat complicated, but most people still managed their own time, and the children wasn’t put into institutions and few worked in public administration, they were their own masters or had much influence on their work. My father used much time building on the house, and generally lived a very little organized life with lots of freedom.

Peggy and Jo – the two founders of Pun Pun.
I just saw this quote by Rudolf Steiner, and I had to read it more than once to understand it fully.
But it is sensible, only what we do out of love is fully our doing, if we don’t do it out of love, something else have ‘forced’ us to do it, desires, opinions, public opinions, regulations, laws, and so forth.
So to be truly free is to live in love, but it’s of course not some hallelujah kind of love or a sentimental one, it’s a genuine state of mind, being in peace in the soul.
But it’s impossible to live that way in a materialistic society, there is not much room for compassion and care in a society build on things and consumption.
We need a society build on Jon’s experience, a decentralized society, with local sustainable production.
