King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table and a Girl

Just a Girl

When I was around 11 or 12 years old I was given a book about a boy who pulled a sword out of a stone. The sword in the stone was under a spell and only the one who was meant to be a great king could pull it out.

This was my first taste of the Arthurian Legend. After that I went to the library and read anything and everything King Arthur. I don’t want to ruin the story for those who have not read it but as you can tell since thousands of years have passed King Arthur is dead. Legend goes that one day the great king would return.

I remember thinking as a kid what if I’m King Arthur? I was all excited in the idea until I looked in the mirror and realized that I was but a girl. How could I be the great king come back to life to make a great difference in the world if I was just a girl? I was disappointed.

 

The Knights of the Round Table

The thing that always stands out in my mind about the Arthurian Legend, besides Merlin the wise wizard, is the round table. When King Arthur would meet with his knights they would do so at the round table. Since the table was round there was no head, this represented that everyone at the table was equal. Of course each knight had their skills and talents but that didn’t make one knight better than the next. The power was in the team.

 

I Can’t Find the Round Table

I’ve been searching and searching for the round table only to be disappointed time after time. Every time I get pulled in by an advertisement and a person’s reputation the end result is always this is not the round table of my dreams, the one in my heart I know exists. What was promised in the advertisement was not what I got and this happens over and over again.

 

Not Just a Girl

I’m not a kid anymore and I’m not just a girl. I’ve seen myself do some amazing things. I’m not easy to impress and I don’t like to brag, so if I say I’ve done some amazing things, trust me when I say at least I impressed myself.

 

If It Doesn’t Exist Maybe YOU Are Meant to Build It

I can’t find my round table yet I know it exists because I see it in my mind every day. I search and search for it here on Earth but it is never like the one that exists in my mind. My mind has the blue prints and so does yours. You see you are a vehicle for creation and maybe whatever you wish existed but doesn’t, YOU were meant to create.

 

I know what you are thinking this girl is coockoo, but remember I told you I’m not a girl anymore, for God’s sake pay attention :p

 

You might not believe in reincarnation and I’m not sure what I think about it either, I’m a Libra some days I’m like yes some days I’m like no. The point is King Arthur is everything I ever wanted to be, so why can’t I be King Arthur? His influence lives through me and in that aspect I am King Arthur. Who is your hero, who lives on through you? Who is your King Arthur?

 

All I know is that my Excalibur is calling me, I can hear the voice of The Lady of the Lake in the wind. She says “you know where your sword is, now come and get it”.
