I was going to say that if you’re looking for some great escapism, then the final book to tell you about in this series would be ideal. But then I realised that The Grail Mysteries is no escape all at all. It is a bridge into the Other Worlds that are just as real as this one.
As you read it, and engage with what on the surface appears to be just a rollicking good yarn about the adventures of Merlin, Taliesin and Manawydan in their efforts to bury The Thirteen Treasures of Britain, to protect the Sovereignty of the land, you will awaken your dream fairies who will come to you in your sleep and teach you about the inner meanings of these stories.
In this way, you will benefit personally from the same Virgo Teachings received by a prostitute living in post-Roman Britain, and whose late middle-age is utterly transformed when she discovers that she comes from a long line of “cuens” and is thus a true queen of the “cuentry” of Britain.
As we follow her awakening, we gradually realise that a true queen is not necessarily one who is anointed with oil on her forehead by the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is one who carries the faery blood and who is anointed by the nectars that flow from the awakening of the Black and Gold serpents during shamanic sex magic with the divine.
We learn that a true queen does not necessarily wear a crown on her head and that when she does, it is only to symbolise that the crown in her cranium has been fired up by the ignition sparked after the Red and White serpentine drops have fallen on to her pineal gland, or third eye, and her Inner Sun has risen within her.
In this way, a true queen holds the Sovereignty of the nation, which has been passed into her safekeeping by the spirits of the land. Only a true queen can make a king who is wise enough to rule.
And you will also hear Taliesin’s moving rendition of an ancient, Welsh Mabinogian myth about how a huge and bitter gulf came about between Ireland and Britain – a gulf that is still to be bridged properly today, and which led to the head of the giant king Bran being buried in the land, for protection.
