Glastonbury is said to be the centre for the 'dragon currents' the terrestrial forces which connect the whole earth by a complicated network of energy flow. The Glastonbury Tor is thought by some people to be the Holy Grail, the goal sought by Gilgamesh and many heroes of old. The cup, it has been suggested, is the spiral labyrinth which encircles this cosmic power point.
One local story speaks of a hollow space inside the Tor, a place of magic and mystery. Another suggests that the spiraling mound has an entrance to the underworld.
Whatever, when I entered the gateway and began to follow the pathway that led to the pinnacle it seemed that there were naturally spiraling ridges that wound themselves around the mound - a subterranean path that I should follow.
We descended to the Chalice Well, a timeless and sacred place, full of legend, symbolism and atmosphere, a place whose history has no beginning.......
The people of old saw the wells as gateways to the spirit world where the veils between human existence and the greater spirit became thinner, and communications could take place with the gods and goddesses of the nature religions.
When I lay down for a nap upon the Pennyroyal
in my Lemurian Garden I dream of a film
that I reach up my hands to tear down. I dream of a film between two pillars
that veils what is beyond. I want to know ,what is there, in the ethers
behind the film. I know that we are on the edge of something. Humans are
about to take the leap. My whole being seems to be concentrated on getting
the courage to tear down this film, to open the door. To see the new beginning.
To be reborn. (Trendle Ellwood)

Begin writing. Do not worry about grammar or spelling. Just write for twenty minutes about your journey within the spiraling corridors that lead ever upward towards the Tor.
Do not stop to think. Just write about where you are and your experience. You could write directly in the Bravenet forum I have provided or add your piece afterwards.
