Some of the turmoils we are confronted with in life are just calling us into deeper self-awareness and a more profound awakening. We become more aware of what is hidden in us. When we are on a journey of self-exploration we can use the things that come from the outside world to show us what we still have to look at in us. The outer world is reacting to our inner state like a dog is barking at people who hate dogs or people smile at someone who just has fallen in love and so on. If that is true we can reframe the turmoil we are going through as a passage on our path of healing and awakening. We can use curiosity, compassion, openness, and acceptance as helping tools for doing this. When we work with what life provides us with we have enough to grow in self-awareness rapidly.
“Peter guides me, coaches me, to bring out my truth and be better, stronger. He encourages me to create new habits, to see a vision of what I can achieve, and create my path to get there. I recommend coaching with Peter, to overcome difficulties and achieve your potential because like a true educator (from the Latin root ‘educare: to lead out’), Peter leads out the best of you.” Rebecca
The spiritual task is to get used to living consciously more and more minutes during the day and being aware of one´s body and feeling at the same time. 1 session: 50€/$, email@example.com
As we grow through the Parzival Way into the inner being, we remain longer and longer anchored in this awareness, in which all things appear and disappear as expressions of the One but we rest in oneness. This is not a cold state in which one leans back as an observer, but a state that is deeply connected and committed to the well-being of all beings, as the great teachers taught us.
The “Parzival-Process” I am coaching is leading you through the different stages of memories and clusters that may hold you back. We don´t like painful feelings. These mostly suppressed feelings feeding negative thoughts in our minds. How to break free from this? How can we change limiting beliefs? It´s easy but it takes courage. But the result is self-empowerment, freedom, and joy.
Will the world after Covid19 look different than the world before? More trades, classes, and meetings will take place online. We will have slightly a quieter world. Encounter real people will be much more appreciated. In order to be more present with your friend and family members, we can have an honest look on how much of us is really present right now and we can increase this amount of presence in our mind and body. In order to be more here, we have to look at what of us in the past or future. These parts have mostly an emotional charge. I will show you in my new program called Parzivals Way how to bring these parts back to you.
In our modern age, we people are displaced creatures. Jean Liedloff developed her Continuum Concept after living with Natives in the Amazonas area. Her hypothesis was that we humans as a species have expectations after birth and in the following years implemented in our DNA that should not be violated. These expectations include immediate physical contact with the mother after birth, breastfeeding, continuous physical and eye contact with several persons of the family, and last but not least trust in the baby´s abilities to deal with danger and intuition and its immediate response to the mothers call. This expected provision of life for each species I will call here the Lifeline. There is another important thesis Liedloff expresses. In order to reach this Lifeline, a young child will always try to fulfill the secret or open expectations of the parents, even when this includes its own death for example by running over a street into a car. Fearful parents put their children in great danger because they will try to fulfill their horrific expectations. If some of these expectations of our species are violated a trauma is created that sets our soul on a path of searching for the Lifeline we have lost. Liedloff writes that some people would find the Lifeline even by using heavy drugs like heroin. Others would prefer a more spiritual approach. Most of the current population is trying to fill their empty souls with things from the outside world like food, relations, sensations, intoxications, distractions, objects, knowledge, identities, abilities, etc. Because this kind of search is destined to fail many people carry deep unhealed wounds in themselves and are confused about how to find a remedy. When they have tried everything they may hit rock button and will no further search outside. After that turning point, the inner journey begins. Now they are equally confronted with a whole market of spiritual offerings. Most of them will work only on the surface of the problem that is the loss of the Lifeline without turning the seeker deep enough inwards in order to find it. The Parzival story was written to outline the way. Is it hard work to walk this path? Not really! It asks only a different attitude of us. An attitude of surrender. That means we are called to let go of some abilities we are so proud of: Abilities to define our space versus the outside world, the ability to judge, to divide, to plan, etc. Instead, we are asked to jump into the stream of life and let it carry us back into the Lifeline in the middle of the stream. Every day is a call for doing this and every micro event during this day is a call for return. Why could we not hear the call before? It was our unwillingness to listen. To listen to what? To the voice that is calling us back onto our Lifeline. Whose voice may that be? In Parzival´s case, he hears this voice of yearning for someone that is absent in the beauty of nature. His father was absent because he did without ever seeing his son. The hero´s journey will be therefor a healing journey for the father in himself. The father was in Christianity the symbol for God, which is of course not gender-specific. It could also be the yearning for a real mother whose love was not possessive and abusive but unconditional. The love we have not received and are yearning for only the Loving Source of the Universe can give and people who have learned to listen to It. They have become like flutes, so empty that God can play his song on them.
The method that Parzival is employing during his adventures in order to learn how to listen to the Spirit is the voices of these brothers and sisters on his way. Until he decided to let their voice be the voice of the Spirit he would never find the Holy Grail. His path is a pathway back to the Lifeline. The readers who want to follow him are invited to let their daily lives be a new adventure of self-exploration and Grail Search. They are called for further and deeper mindfulness everyday. They go astray, they fall back like Parzival did. But they return to the path as warriors until the Lifeline is reached, salvation is done and communion, love, and communication between themselves and their brothers and sister is established. The Net of Creation is one more time woven together.
Eschenbach’s Parzival is the first great German novel. With his work, he concludes the only fifty-year long period of medieval Grail narratives, which began with Chretien de Troyes’ “Conte del Graal” and continued with Robert Boron’s “Joseph dÁrimathe” and “Merlin”. Centuries later Sir Thomas Malory wrote a summary of the Grail- and Arthurian stories called “Le Morte d’Arthur”. The first precursors of these Christian Grail Tales were Irish-Celtic tales of a young hero named Peredur. The Grail Legends are therefore originally Western tales brought to the East by Wolfram, at a time when the last Staufer Emperor Frederick II ruled over the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, and Jerusalem was close to being lost. The High Middle Ages were slowly coming to an end. Parzival was a world story, in which the figures moving through the whole known world. Christians and Muslims fight with and against each other on distant fronts. The territories on both sides of the Rhine are not yet divided into nation-states, but into personal zones of influence of the landlords. Large areas are still covered by forests, through which knights and common people roam, always in search of something. Since Eschenbach was close to the Knights Templar, this novel breathes an open, ironic, and mystically charged spirit. The story moves through the signs of the zodiac and echoes the path of the adept through the transformative processes of alchemy. He implemented a story of transformation into the Western culture which was open to new ideas.
Maybe Wolfram wrote his story also for our time. We do not know how the peoples of Europe will overcome the coming storms of history, but since we still have time to reflect and ask ourselves what will remain of us, it is time to listen to the colorful tales of Wolfram von Eschenbach. He dressed them in symbolic images that can be deciphered by own our consciousness. This was not done in a linear way, but in a way that transcended time and space. Today there is a call in the world to awaken to Source. It is the time to complete the time of learning on this earth, to be free, to face lessons and adventures in other worlds. Wolfram has summarized recurring themes in pictures and captured the underlying dynamics as if it happened in a dream. Last but not least, he has woven the Holy Grail into his narrative as a symbol of redemption. The whole story is based on this secret center.
This symbol came from many sources, such as the memories of Jesus, the Celtic cauldron of rebirth, the longing for the feminine, and the cup of the bliss of the Sufi poets of Persia and Turkey. Thus the Holy Grail was more than a European or Christian symbol. It represented the hope for peace and salvation for all of the known world. This multidimensional symbol of integration was involved in bringing the Middle Ages out of the darkness and preparing Europe for the Renaissance. The rediscovery of Greek and Roman classical literature brought something old and seemingly new back into European culture, namely the joy of being a rational person. The Grail as a symbol speaks of the rebirth of the feminine, which must take place precisely in our age if we are to survive as a civilization, as well as of the possibility of enlightenment, which is so far away and so near at the same time. Today, the spiritual knowledge of all humanity lies at our feet. We could read forever books about new discoveries and spiritual technologies and try even harder to find a shortcut to enlightenment. lectures and to become faster and better in our self-optimization. But what spiritual nourishment do we really need today? Parzival can become an important version of a dream of salvation. To receive his healing power in an easy way, once you have managed to leave your ego aside. The story can lead us through the twilight zone of our dreams into the sunlight of a new dawn. Whoever has become the “Guardian of the Grail”, a guardian of his own spirit, will become the light of his world, which is the mission of every disciple.
Each week we will consider a part of the story and related tasks. Each week is connected with a stone of the Medicine Wheel we see above. These are inner connectors the cosmic powers, both of the story, our own lives, and the signs of the Zodiak.
Parzival’s childhood Parzival was the son of the knight Gamurets and the Herzeleyde. After the early death of his father, who fell as a traveling knight in battle against Babylon, Parzival grew up in the deep forrest Soltane. His mother had retired with her entourage to an estate deep in the loneliness of this forest to protect their boy from the life that had brought her husband to death. This knightly world should remain completely alien to him, she had decided. So he grew up in loneliness and in harmony with nature.
Parzival felt the beauty of nature and also a deep yearning in himself that his mother was concerned about him when he cried in his arms after a long day of running through the forest. „Why are you crying, my son?“ „When the birds sing, I feel so much, joy in me. But also it makes me sad. I don´t know what to do. It’s too much!“ One day he shot a bird with his bow, and showed him to his mother, she said: „Never kill anything without reason! Can you bring this bird to life again?“ Parzival was shocked about this inside. He started crying often when he heart a bird sing. Herzeleyde, his mother had an idea. She ordered her hunters to kill all birds around her Hacienda. This could not long-kept secret to the boy. First, he sensed a silence. Nobody wanted to tell him why no birds were singing anymore. But one day he encountered the hunters with a bunch of dead bird, carrying them home. He cried and protested aloud. They only admitted the order by his mum. He was very angry and run home. He yelled to her and cried until she promised him to not kill birds anymore. The birds came back and he walked again overwhelmed by emotions of joy, awe, and sadness. His tears were running down his cheeks when he set in the grass and listened to the many sounds that came from the trees where a gentle breeze was moving the leaves and the animals were in communication. He felt a connection with them and could see their innocence and holiness. In these moments he had no worries and spent hours in total peace. Even when he cried sometimes because he didn´t know what to do with all the love in his chest he enjoyed these moments and remembered them for the rest of his life.
