It seems that cracking secret “codes” and uncovering ancient wisdom has become the obsession of the 21st century.
We are now told that even Agatha Christie used codes in her famous novels and almost every Renaissance painter has his work analysed for hidden secrets or papal plots. So it is refreshing to see genuine applied scholarship and good old fashioned research of the calibre presented in this compelling book on the truth of the Holy Grail.
Maurice Cotterell is the author of The Tutankhamum Prophecies, The Mayan Prophecies, The Lost Tomb of Viracocha and The Terracotta Warriors and in the same spirit he now presents this seminal work of brilliance where all the loose ends and dangling swords are neatly woven together into a cloth of brilliance.
Cotterell uses the same knowledge that enabled him to break the codes of the Mayas, Peruvians, Egyptians and Chinese to reveal that the Holy Grail is indeed still in existence and that it contains many secrets that link it to almost every ancient civilisation.
In Jesus, King Arthur and the Journey of the Grail, we are taken on an amazing, well researched journey back thousands of years to the cradle of the Indus valley. Here we follow the migration of the Celts 4,000 years ago from Asia, across Europe and to Ireland.
His account of this epic journey, together with his knowledge of the secret codes of the Celts help him to identify and locate the Holy Grail, the actual cup used by Christ and his disciples at the Last Supper.
The author reveals the true story of this vessel and how it contains the secret super-science of the Sun and the higher orders of spirituality. The cup was carried to England by Joseph of Arimathea in 453 CE, and it was discovered by King Arthur. Arthur engraved it with the same esoteric information found on the Pyramid of Inscriptions in Palenque, Mexico as well as on the Gateway of the Sun at Tiahuanaco in ancient Peru.
Cotterell’s research skills were put to the test as he examined the Grail cup and he discovered that it does indeed radiate light, just as described in the Arthurian legends. From the Arthurian Court, the cup was then passed onto the monks of Lindisfarne who then copied the secrets of the Grail into the Lindisfarne Gospels and the well known Book of Kells.
The monks were forced to flee from Viking raids. And so they carried their treasures to Ireland, which is how the cup ended up in the Dublin Museum, where it rests today.
Unlike so many lacklustre attempts at research, Cotterell’s book presents well documented facts that reveal the ancients of Egypt, Peru and China possessed a scientific understanding of a very high order.
This ancient wisdom, hidden in plain sight in engravings and sacred art, reveals truths that modern man is only now beginning to grasp. These seemingly untutored ancients knew that the Sun controls fertility, human personality, and even the solar magnetic reversals that erase civilisations.
More importantly these ancients, whom Cotterell refers to as “Supergods,” taught that the key secret, or element was the evolution of the human soul. This key element is completely ignored by modern scientists, many of whom dispute the reality of an eternal soul within the human being. Without this key understanding, claims Cotterell, creation remains ever meaningless.
The ancients believed that creation forms the pathway for the imperishable and everlasting element within all humanity, to evolve both spiritually and physically. These secrets were encoded using pictures and mirror-images, they were also encoded through the use of numbers, particularly the ubiquitous “666” and its opposite, “999.” These numbers, referred to in the Book of Revelation, clearly had their origins in the earliest of civilisations, including the glyphs of Egypt and the tombs of the Mayans.
Cotterell reveals that the journey of transmigration of the soul is actually a mechanism. God, it seems, sacrificed or perhaps donated, 5 per cent of himself and gave that energy for what physicists today refer to as the “big bang.” Time was created when the Universe began and over time the evolution of the species was formed. His premise is based on the theory of Divine Reconciliation with the objective being “God-growth.”
Cotterell supplies diagrams, facts and strange coincidences that are hard to dispute. But perhaps more importantly, he weaves spiritual principals with scientific facts, supplying a convincing model of life as we know it.
Light, he tells us, is actually electromagnetic energy which Jesus referred to as the “Father.” The key is to concentrate high levels of light, which eastern mystics refer to as Chi or Ki force, within the body-soul through the mind choice of love, rather than hate. This in turn allows the individual soul to “graduate” from a constant cycle of reincarnation into permanent God-hood.
The facts Cotterell supplies are compelling. Indeed, he points out that the physical universe continues to perplex modern physicists. It is a well known that nothing has been learned about gravity, the force that makes all things fall earthward, and the same force that bonds all parts of the universe together, since Newton first defined it in 1687.
The modern physicist obsesses over counting planets and calculating figures for the total amount of gravity, yet when they complete the calculation, the final figure obtained makes no sense, and could not possibly sustain the pull of the universe. It is clear that science has been unable to make the leap from Newtonian physics to Quantum physics, a step Cotterell offers by way of understanding the spiritual or light principles.
Cotterell’s book is the modern day quest for the Holy Grail. It offers copious notes and detailed appendixes, more than enough to satisfy the most serious student of metaphysics and ancient mysteries. This book offers many keys to the missing links of life, the transmigration of souls, and of course, the obsession with codes that assails the 21st century researcher.
It is clear that until science can meet spirituality, embrace metaphysics, and the deeper wisdom of “meaning,” we will remain ignorant of the deep wisdom of the ancients. This wisdom can be found in Maurice Cotterell’s insightful and amazing book.
