Tales of Knightly Deedscontinued
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 and connected to his Queen and Goddess, who once said of 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)
Every single task a white knight does, he does in three stages:
Even the tinniest, simplest job requires preparation. It is as the old military maxim states:
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
The last stage is one often overlooked by other knights but not by a white knight. He won't run off 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 white knightly deeds are done.
