state of mind
Happy new promises
Happy new hopes
Happy new starts
Happy new dreams
May you keep them all until next new years eve
and then relive them once again
So your days will be filled with hopes
and you´ll never stop dreaming
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Oh, but what was I just told? It might be translated into Norwegain
The horror! The horror!
And a voice said to the boy: "You will be the keeper of the grail, and it heals the hearts of mankind."
But the boy was blinded by bigger visions of a life full of power and glory and splendor. In a state of complete ecstacy for one moment he feels not like a boy but invincible, like a god. He reached out with his hands into the fire to seize the grail, but it disappeared and left him behind with his hands in the fire, and he sustained serious burnings.
And while the boy grew older his wound grew deeper. Until one day life lost its sense for him. He could not have faith in anybody, not even in himself. He could neither love nor feel love. After he got that clear in his mind he became ill. He began to die.
One day a fool entered the castle and found the king alone. And with his simple mind the fool did not recognize the king. He just saw a man who was alone and took pains.
And he asked the king: "What's wrong with you, friend?"
And the king answered: "I'm thirsty. I need some water to moisten my throat."
So the fool grasped a mug that stood next to the bed, filled it with water and passed it to the king. As the king began to drink he realized that his wound was healed. He looked in his hands; and there was the holy grail he aimed for all his lifetime.
In astonishment he asked the fool: "How could you find what my Noblest and Bravest failed to find?"
And the fool replied: "I don't know! I just knew that you were thirsty."
