Why do you need this Grail? What purpose would it serve?
Let me start by explaining what I mean by "Holy Grail"
the not's first
not Dan Brown's Mary Magdalene
not some cup or chalice from the last supper
not the "Round Table" holy grail
the specifics ...
the 'whole enchilada'
the 'big kahuna'
Some readers may wonder "How will you know if you find it? For me, analogous to the question ... "How do you know when it's time for a poop? ... You just know!
Some readers may wonder "What is there to do after you find it?" Hypothetical in the extreme ... yet I will offer some speculation. For me ... if the 'whole enchilada' is revealed to me it ... it seems logical that my task would be to 'help' others who are on the same path.
Let me explain my use of the word "help" ... I use it in this context ...
Lifting the 'veil' ... removing the 'veil' ... is the purview of the Author of Creation. Those who attempt to usurp this authority are all charlatans.
To your question Phyllo ... I would no longer stumble around in the dark ... I would walk in the light.
