Tales of a White Knight
A White Knight's DeedsFrom
The White Knight's Handbook to Life
A white knight considers every task, every action as important and sacred as the next one. Small ordinary tasks are carried out with the same effort and focus as rare exceptional tasks. A white knight might even favour small ordinary tasks above the others.
Scrubbing the stone castle floor, gathering firewood, cooking breakfast are all tasks that can make a white knight feel good, connected, close
to his Queen and God, who once said of Him-/Herself:
"I am the light that is above all.
I am the All.
The All came forth out of me.
And to me the All has come.
Split a piece of wood and I am there,
Lift a stone and you will find me there."
(The Gospel of Thomas, The Nag Hammadi Library)
Then, every single task a white knight does, he does in three stages:
The last stage is one often overlooked by other knights but not
by a white knight. He won't run of after a horse ride leaving his horse unattended nor will he forget to thank it for its service. He won't leave the dinner table without contemplating the meal's delight nor will he leave the dirty dishes.
This way he will finish whatever he started even if he does not finish what he started.
And that is how a white knight's deeds are done.
