Concepts Intro

While the 12 Trusts serve as the most visible expression of Chivalry-Now, the history of this movement, like Western Civilization itself, extends back to ancient Greece. What developed from this earliest foundation was shaped by a timeline of contributory concepts that leads to what we have today. These concepts directly formed the coherent best of Western culture. Unfortunately, over time, their rich depth of their meaning, so important to the rationale of Western ideals, has largely been forgotten. We are left with a hollow edifice, impressive from the outside, but empty and wavering from within.
    The sad result? An advanced society where basic values conflict with one another. The unspoken, personal frustration that comes from a lack of significant purpose in life. Pathetically stagnating, ideological wars of fragmented ideas that prevent cultural advancement. Scarcely a day passes without regression - anger, ignoring its actual cause, willing to fixate on anything. A positive sense of purpose has been replaced by an identity of divisiveness.
   
To remedy this, Chivalry-Now attempts to return what was lost. It explains the depth of the original concepts that shaped our culture and give it meaning. It gives us both the tools and direction to move on. By reclaiming the deeper meaning of truth and freedom, by articulating the relevance of the highest virtue, by putting us in touch with the autonomous responsibility provoked by Nature's Law, Chivalry-Now articulates the inspiration of our own legacy.
   
While these concepts were once reserved for the training of our fellowship Companions, the exigencies of the times call for something more immediate. If we do not rescue Western civilization from the dire threats of ignorance and greed, which grow stronger every day, the results may be catastrophic.
   
These concepts proved their potency in the past. The question is, can they do so again? Can they ignite the inspiration of enough people to bring about the necessary leap in human consciousness, a new age firmly based on truth, compassion and free thought? That remains to be seen.
   
In a very real sense, good reader, our success depends on you.

Concept 1: The Nudge of Telos

Do you ever wish that your life had more significance?
    No matter how busy you are, or successful, or popular, do you ever experience quiet moments when a shadow of self-doubt crosses your mind, whispering that something is missing in your life? Something fundamental to your sense of personal fulfillment. An unspecified cause to stand up for, perhaps. Some purpose that would make your life exactly what it should be.
    In Chivalry-Now, we call this instinctive nudge of existential conscience "Telos," a word from Greek philosophy that translates as "inner aim," as in some predetermined expectation of who you should be, and what you should be doing.
    We believe that most people experience this at some point in their lives - how often depends on how tuned-in they are with the workings of their own conscience. They usually respond with a moment's reflection, and then quickly back away from the threat of existential anxiety. No one wants to think that their life might be impaired of meaning, or going in the wrong direction. That this shadow of doubt occurs, however, and in some people quite often, surely has significance. We do not want our lives to be wasted or lacking of value or ill-remembered. How to remedy that, however, places a question mark on our existence.
    That we are alive as persons, that we own a living experience of time that offers a unique perspective, along with knowing that our lives will someday end, adds to this rub of consciousness. Just as our genetic makeup produces a distinct pattern of physical growth, the intuitive prodding of Telos reminds us to expand morally as well. That means listening to the dictates of conscience, and applying reason to determine correct action. This is the impetus of human nature toward virtue. Our unspoken role is to bring truth and justice and compassion to the world for the benefit of now and future generations. If we fail to do that, we remain incomplete, unsatisfied, pricked by the shadow of conscience.
    Chivalry-Now, with its 12 Trusts, foundational concepts (such as Telos), and supportive fellowship, unveils a path that you can take to fill that spiritual void. We call it the Quest. You start when you decide to view your own life's journey as a meaningful process of learning, growing and helping others. Once you accept that point-of-view, everything that happens next is seen as an opportunity for truth and self-development. This is the universal message of the mythology Hero's Journey. We take the virtues that the Quest teaches us and bring them back for the benefit of all.
   
With this in mind, we invite you to join us. Nothing formal is necessary. You don't even have to introduce yourself. Just read the material, think about it, and then follow your heart. Your Quest is uniquely your own. The International Fellowship of Chivalry-Now is just a nexus where our separate Quests periodically intersect to find and give mutual support. Its congenial reinforcement makes progress that much easier.

Concept 2: The Personal Goal of Areté

Areté (pronounced ah rhi tay in English) is an important concept in Chivalry-Now. You will see it used as a greeting or salute among our Companions, and as the motto on our official armorial design.
    The word is Greek for 1) excellence; 2) the highest virtue; and 3) the greatest good.
    While grammatically it could apply to the excellent accomplishment of anything, it refers to something very specific for our purposes, the highest significant characteristic of human beings.
    Ancient Greek philosophers examined human nature for traits that set it apart from other creatures. They sought to discover what made us special in order to learn our purpose in the universe, and better attain that goal. Two traits were seen as definitive: the use of reason, and the development of virtue.
    The combination of reason and virtue is what makes us most excellently human. We are therefore expected to develop a high degree of reason and virtue in our lives. When we accomplish that, it is said that we achieve Areté, our highest virtue. Philosophers concluded that the goal of human nature is to strive for this excellence.
    Areté lies at the heart of everything that Chivalry-Now espouses. Reasonable, virtuous people live reasonable and virtuous lives. Here we find the simple cure for all our social and political ills, and for dispelling the inner dissatisfaction that plagues so many of us in our personal lives. People of Areté simply do not contribute to the cause of so many problems. They work for the improvement of both themselves and society instead. They achieve the kind of personhood that places them consciously in the moment. They respect truth, think for themselves, and never allow political ideologies to dictate their views. They do not encourage vice. They are courteous to others because they understand the value of personal relationships. They exhibit strong self-control. And lastly, they enjoy life because they are in tune with it. They enjoy having purpose and meaning, the deprivation of which dampens life with low self-esteem and lack of direction.
    We attain Areté by applying ourselves to the self-discipline of acquiring virtue and expressing that virtue through the application of reason. The excellence it implies is achieved over time. Everyday life is seen as a quest for building our own Areté, a learning experience through which truth is found and accumulated, and our intelligence and compassion grow accordingly. Areté leads to personal fulfillment.
   
If our commitment is real, Chivalry-Now helps us achieve that goal. First of all, it calls our attention to the concept of Areté, a task which our culture should be doing as matter of course, but does not. Next, it provides the 12 Trusts as a simple moral guide that expresses our own innate values that need to be reclaimed. It teaches us to live life as a quest in order for Areté to develop as nature intended. It provides courteous fellowship to help us on our individual paths. Its deeper concepts (Telos, Areté, Aletheia, Nature's Law, etc.) provide profound catalysts for thought, while fleshing out the meaning of our own western ideals so that they make sense and pull us back on track.
   
Whether or not you join us, you can still benefit by thinking about Areté, and how it can apply to your life. When you do that, the process of healing and growth begins, for yourself and for the society of which you are part.

Concept 3: Aletheia, A More Comprehensive Understanding of Truth

We translate the Greek word Aletheia into English simply as "truth." Unfortunately, this fails to convey the distinct nuances that make it so profound.
    The first nuance means "to remember." This suggests that truth is something we already know, but need to consciously recall. This is very important to moral tendencies that appear to be instinctive rather than learned, such as the dictates of conscience. We own them already. Because they are part of who we are, their development is essential to our growth and fulfillment. This amounts to a very subjective relationship with moral truth that springs from our own cognitive functions.
    The second means "to discover," which well describes our relationship with experiential truth. We approach it objectively, with inquiry, logic, research and method, and form reasonable conclusions. This applies to a wide range of our everyday encounters and understanding of the world. The scientific method accounts for most of the comforts and benefits we associate with modernity and progress.
    The third nuance, at first glance, seems completely unrelated to the others. It translates into English as "a not-death experience." This suggests that the encounter with truth, whether it comes subjectively, objectively or both, is life-enhancing. On one hand, it is a common experience to feel more alive when we search for some truth that interests us. Excited. Energized. On the other hand, once we obtain a growing understanding of truth, especially in its depth, our conscious experience of everything becomes more expansive. We move away from what might be described as spiritual death, stagnation of the soul, atrophy of the mind. We become, instead, living conduits of truth, warriors of light dispelling the darkness of ignorance. The true hero is the one who makes this vital transition, not only for oneself but for humanity as well. this is the purpose of the quest.
    Combining these three nuances, a more accurate translation of the word Aletheia would be more like this: "a subjective/objective relationship with truth that brings life to our deeper selves." It is a worthy goal, a spiritual enterprise worth contemplating, and therefore an ideal for which we should strive. When Chivalry-Now speaks of truth, this is what we mean.
    So, truth has meaning for us that transcends the mere accumulation of fact. Truth is a primary requirement for the human condition. In a world swirling with illusions, the quest for truth allows us to develop as we should. When embraced, it adds to our personal evolution, elevating us to whole new vistas of awareness in the here and now. What we sometimes refer to as Grail Consciousness is the added allure of the quest for truth by confronting the mystery surrounding it. We will discuss that later.

Concept 4: The Personal Transformation of Agagnorisis

Anagnorisis refers to a very specific kind of personal transformation.
    In early Greek drama, it represented the point in the story when a character learns a profound truth that causes all misleading illusions to dissolve. Nothing is left but real self and the world as it truly is. This is best illustrated in Sophocles’ famous tragedy Oedipus Rex. When Oedipus learns of his true parentage, the sinful side of his greatness is revealed. He is no longer the same man. He can’t be. Truth has changed him to the core. His vision is so clear, in fact, that he blinds himself to the shame that he cannot accept.
    For Chivalry-Now, the concept of Anagnorisis is not one of tragedy but of liberation and positive rebirth. It is change of perception, a change of consciousness itself, brought about when our hero’s journey, our personal quest for truth, is sufficiently able to jar us from the trap of illusion induced complacency. We become more alive. We see things differently. The lure of following the crowd loses its power. Illusions no longer appeal as they did before. It is like seeing the world for the very first time, in all its struggling beauty, majesty and dreadful challenges. It also reveals the baseness of life that we must contend with, and hopefully turn around. It brings with it a pause button of sorts, which empowers us to slow things down, see them more clearly and reflect on their significance.
    This change can be sudden and dramatic, or gradual. Sadly, for those who are not open to the possibility, who are addicted to the constant stream of distractions that mollify us, it may not come at all.
   
Jesus once said that “the truth will make you free.” He also spoke about rebirth, of being “born again.” Powerful words. While Christian dogma may apply the meaning differently, Anagnorisis reflects their simplest, experiential meaning. Anagnorisis is not a matter of faith limited to true believers, It is a matter of direct experience available to us all. It is a turning point that substantially changes the progress of one’s quest. One’s commitment to life is no longer superficial.
   
It is the process of the quest, and the confrontation with mystery, that leads to this transformation.

Concept 5: Nature’s Law, our Source of Autonomy

The opening sentence of the Declaration of Independence makes pointed reference to the concept of “Nature’s law” to support its argument. As important as this reference sounds, most people today have no idea what it means. They consider it a catchy phrase, semi-poetic, that somehow adds resonance to the subject at hand.
    To the writers of the Declaration, and their audience, the mention of Nature’s Law delivered a justification of moral authority. Historically, the term provided the foundation of jurisprudence, with roots going back to ancient Greece.
    As a foundational concept for Chivalry-Now, Nature’s Law provides an actual resource available for moral decisions. It offers the key to personal transformation that completes who we are, an underlying principle that makes freedom and personal autonomy possible.
    What do we mean by autonomy? Autonomy means affirming and responding to the moral directives that we find within ourselves as rational beings of conscience. It affirms our own nature as creatures capable of virtue and reason (Areté), using conscience to to help decide right from wrong. This provides the intellectual basis for justice, and contributed to the intellectual climate of the Age of Enlightenment when the Declaration of Independence was written. It affirmed that certain rights and responsibilities were not only unalienable but self-evidently human.
   
Chivalry-Now turns to Nature’s Law for its moral foundation of freedom and authenticity. This is why its concepts, principles and code of ethics resound so affirmatively to so many people. They often say that our words express their own inner thoughts and values, as if they had written them themselves. That’s because the words articulate the rationale of their inner conscience, which is the natural conduit of Nature’s law.
   
Such autonomy becomes freedom’s truest justification. Freedom, without a moral imperative, without the individual’s quest for truth and virtue, fails as a human ideal. It is a state of adolescence that lacks justification. It is the nature of humanity to rise above the law of the jungle. Freedom helps in that endeavor, but only when it recognizes its own purpose. Without it, freedom becomes both amorphous and amoral, and our crowded prisons prove that.
   
If we want to be authentically complete human beings, we are expected to evolve from childhood to morally responsible adults. That means attaining a functional level of autonomy, which is the utilization of Nature’s Law in the form of reason and conscience. If we fail to do that, we remain the products of someone else.

Concept 6: Ordo Mundi

Ordo Mundi is a medieval term meaning the way of the world, or understanding nature. Looking back, one might consider it an ecclesiastic precursor of science, an approach to God through God's creation.
    For today's world, it is recognizing our responsibility to preserve and protect the natural world we live in, and learn from it as well. Whether we recognize it or not (and some people are so caught up with themselves that they do not), our association with nature is one of mutual relationship. We are not outside looking in. We are part of it. To think otherwise is simply misguided. We are not just caretakers or stewards of the earth. We depend upon the workings of nature for our survival and that of future generations as well.
    The Grail legend tells us that when the Grail King was wounded in his manhood, the realm suffered. It became a Wasteland. This is an incredibly prescient warning for our times, when our hubris is such that oceans are being poisoned with toxic waste and radiation, tap water ignites in flame, and climate change across the globe screams for change while simple, unconscionable denial cripples our response. If ever there was a unforgivable sin of the spirit, this is it, for it contains all the negativity and ignorance that mires humanity from achieving its own ideals. All through history people lived in accordance with nature. We, in the 21st century, blinded by hubris, greed and addiction to fun, while enjoying all the bounty and benefits that nature and science have given us, somehow feel that we can ravage the world without regard.
   
The Grail legend tells us that the cure is found in the compassion of the innocent heart that dares to inquire about the Grail's secret, which is the mystery of life and our place in it. Regaining our proper state of being, the Grail King, who represents human nature that is broken, becomes miraculously healed, and the land along with him.
   
Confronting the world with the innocence of good-will and compassion is the answer for us as well. Reject the contentious rants of political ideologues who puff up from the sound of their own voices. They get paid to talk like that, and care little about truth. We should not align ourselves with either political agenda as matter of course. Chivalry calls us to align ourselves with truth instead, which is the goal, substance and direction of every quest, and the surest route to personal fulfillment.

Concept 7: Reason

Since the early philosophical strivings of ancient Greece, the importance of the reasoning mind has remained the central impetus of Western culture. While tradition retains a viable influence, when push comes to shove, it usually takes second place to our dependence upon rational decisions. This accounts for the meteoric advance of science and technology in the West.
    Likewise, reason holds an elevated position in Chivalry-Now. It is a strong component of Areté (the combination of reason and virtue) and Nature's Law (the application of reason to conscience). It is implicit in Aletheia as providing a viable approach to objective truth. Reason offers our strongest hope for environmental survival, as recognized by Ordo Mundi.
   Reason not only explains the many accomplishments of ancient Greece, it explains the explosion of progressive thought centuries later during the Age of Reason and its extension, the Age of Enlightenment. Without this continued focus on rational thought, Western culture would be totally different from what it is today. While some might think that the alternative might be better, they have not seriously considered the consequences of a culture based on ignorance.
  
Chivalry-Now encourages people to search for truth and think for themselves. The use of reason, which separates us from other species, is paramount to these goals. It forms the basis for growth and responsible decision-making.

Concept 8: Freedom & Responsibility

"Freedom is not the final goal. It is the means to that goal."
(jacket quote from The Deeper Quest.)

Western culture's emphasis on freedom is surely one of its most distinguishing features. As with all the Chivalry-Now concepts, however, there is a deeper meaning that needs to be explored in order to better understand its relevance.
   
It is easy to assume that freedom means what its name implies: an environment absent of restraint, the ability to do what one pleases. And that would be essentially correct. Such a definition, however, often referred to as negative freedom, conveys an amoral significance. (Negativity, in this case, does not mean bad, but rather a condition that allows for virtue, but fails to encourage it, or anything else for that matter).
   
We all know that we more easily better ourselves in a state of freedom. When human potential is given free rein, avenues are opened toward great creativity and genius.
   
But negative freedom, by itself, leaves the door open to shirk responsibility as well, commit illegal acts or just waste ourselves by wallowing in mediocrity and selfish concerns until we die. It has no stated goal, no meaning other than a wide opportunity to the exploit others.
   
Freedom moves to the level of being a true ideal when accompanied by the strict corollary of responsibility. Only then does it find the rich meaning it deserves, and the direction of life gain purpose.
   
Positive freedom comes from using the potentials of negative freedom to develop oneself responsibly and living a good and virtuous life. It means achieving personal autonomy through the application of reason to conscience (Concept 5, Nature's law). It also encourages the development of the highest human virtue, (Concept 2, Areté). When we do this, we complete our own humanity. When we do not, freedom becomes just an empty word, as supportive of vice and corruption as anything else. The 12 Trusts serve as a guide to meeting our responsibility to others.
   
The Age of Enlightenment expounded the benefits of freedom, but it was not until the arrival of twentieth century Existentialism that the full importance of responsibility was expounded, attaching itself to freedom as its logical and natural response. From this perspective, freedom makes us completely responsible for who we are, what we do, and every word we speak. We are not only responsible for ourselves through our actions, but for defining humanity in the process. Our every deed is a human deed. Our every sin stains the potential of everyone else. Existentialism points out our serious obligation to be our very best at all times, for the sake of our species and future generations. It tells us, quite convincingly, that we cannot acquiesce in the face of evil without becoming evil ourselves.
   
Without recognizing and embracing this powerful responsibility to give freedom its virtuous significance, Chivalry-Now would be just another nice idea, somewhat inspiring perhaps, but lacking in transformational significance.

Concept 9: Kairos - Time for Change

Of all the Concepts of the previously Hidden Teachings of Chivalry-Now, Kairos stands out as the most unique. It does not deal with personal development or a deeper understanding of cultural ideals. Instead, it calls our attention to the possibility of a globally transformative event that will shape the future direction of all humanity.
    This may sound like some New Age or end-of-the-world prophecy, unworthy of Chivalry-Now's usually straight-forward and rational intent. It is therefore commendable to examine it closely with a critical eye.
    For our purposes, the word Kairos (pronounced key-ros) refers to an auspicious moment in time when significant evolutionary change happens due to a combination of historical variables. In contrast, from a theological point of view, Paul Tillich described it as a special time when the eternal breaks into the temporal and people respond. Both descriptions recognize moments in time that are fertile for change — more than fertile, inevitably insistent, providing irresistible catalysts for human development.
   This recognizes that human thought and understanding have transformed over time, and that transformation, no doubt, will continue in the future as well. We are aware of how things change gradually. Styles change. Values adjust. Empires rise and fall, etc. Occasionally, however, and history bears this out, the perspectives of the human mind become modified in great leaps of consciousness, leading to rapid change. We refer to these explosive transformational events as Kairoi (the plural of Kairos.)
    By anticipating the possibility that more of these events will happen in the future Chivalry-Now follows the idea to its logical conclusion. Kairos events happen. While we cannot predict when, we may be facing one now.
    What is a Kairos event? Kairos is a Greek word that translates into English as "the right time." It refers to points in history when significant evolutionary leaps of consciousness place humanity on a new and unprecedented direction. One might think of them as sudden bursts of human development. People see the world differently. Life is never quite the same.
    A very significant Kairos event occurred in what is now called the Golden Age of Greece. In a mere two centuries, blossoming from a world of constant war and intellectual darkness, this bronze-age culture laid the groundwork for Western philosophy and the fundamental structure of every science. It achieved elegance in art and architecture that has yet been equaled, formed governments based on democracy and republican concepts, advanced the literary arts in writing, poetry and drama, and much, much more. It was part of what is now called an Axial Age, a global Kairos that produced equally as transformative advancements in Asia, the Middle East and India as well. For whatever reasons, the times were right for a contagious burst of human consciousness that resulted in massive intellectual change and cultural development.
    Other events are considered products of Kairoi — chief among them include the early Christian era, the cultural achievements of Islam's Golden Age, the inspiration of Mohandas Gandhi that awakened the conscience of not only India but the Western world, and the Age of Enlightenment, which gave birth to the modern mind.
    What precipitates a Kairos event? Each one is different, but we can glean common dynamics and results.
    Historical advancements are cumulative. They interact with one another. Cultures connect and assimilate knowledge and values. The creative impulse contributes to that change in many and varied ways. Natural disasters occur in the forms of earthquakes, floods, plagues and famines. Devastation from war means starting over again. Exploration expands the way people think. Religions influence their times. Strong, good leaders bring progress, while leaders who are selfish and corrupt hold everyone back. People dream. They form ideals and seek to follow them. New discoveries in science can change everything over night.
    When a number of these influences converge, something drastically new may be forged in the process. There is nothing magical, mystical or New Age about this. We are acknowledging sudden changes in the history of thought and the adjustments of consciousness that accompany them.
    Chivalry-Now looks at these historical events and considers the possibility of another happening in the future — perhaps in our own lifetimes.
    Is it possible that the throes of cultural and technological confusion that we presently suffer is setting the stage for a kairos event? The times are certainly ripe for change. The threats of nuclear war, climate change, myriad social problems, regressive politics, and widespread apathy certainly call for something radically dynamic.
    While it is impossible to predict the occurrence of a Kairos event, we can certainly prepare for one. Perhaps by doing so we can help fulfill its outcome.
    Historical Kairos events shared certain commonalities. They centered on freedom, human rights, citizen involvement, the use of reason, and an enthusiasm in contributing to the greater good. These are the attributes upon which we can reliably focus. By incorporating them in our lives, we can welcome and participate in a potential Kairos as instruments of change.
    We will see things differently than we do now. We will be enthused by the realization of new values and partake in that enthusiasm creatively, as happened in Kairoi of the past. Illusions will not control us as they do now. Greed will no longer hamper us from embracing the greater good.
    Chivalry-Now's code of ethics, the 12 Trusts, and the quest that comes with it, not only leads to personal fulfillment and the healing of social ills, it preserves and magnifies the very attributes that support a potential Kairos event. We preserve what is best within us as a foundation for what is yet to come. And if a Kairos event is not immanent, Chivalry-Now maintains its course to proactively initiate what improvements it can. The quest remains before us, no matter what happens.
   
As an addendum, when you see kairos spelled with a small "k," it refers to the present moment of time, not a specific historical or predicted transformational event.

Concept 10: Grail Consciousness

For lack of a better term, Grail Consciousness can be described as the mystical side of Chivalry-Now.
    Like the rest of this non-sectarian, non-partisan movement, it is connected to our experience of Aletheia, the subjective/objective experience of truth from which we derive personal authenticity. As a bonus, it also reflects imagery that is firmly implanted in our cultural past.
    Medieval legends of the Holy Grail provide the spiritual side of chivalric literature. Although the stories are somewhat varied and often express religious ideas, they agree on one thing. The Grail represents the ultimate mystery, both of life and existence itself. Call it the cup from the Last Supper, a jewel fallen from heaven, or a basin from pagan myth that brought the dead to life, it symbolized the powers of Providence imbued in nature, the sustaining mystery of life itself.
    Grail Consciousness is a fundamental awareness of life's mystery in our everyday lives. The cause and nature of existence are simply unknown. The religious person may point to God, but what does that mean? What is God's nature? Can the human mind grasp such a concept? We are dealing with mysteries that cannot be fathomed. Just because we do not understand something does not mean that it does not exist. That we exist at all serves as proof. Therefore, it is right to give mystery its due. Our quest for truth is more complete when we recognize and respect the mystery that surrounds us. It is the X-factor that completes the equation, despite being unknown.
    Mystery is part of truth, even if we cannot define or understand it. To ignore that fact, to not include it in our consciousness of the world, however inconclusively, limits our perception of everything. Without acknowledging mystery, we are not receptive to inspirations that arise from the subconscious. We fail to learn the profound lessons gleaned from the life-enhancing subjective/objective experience of Aletheia.
    This is not the spiritual challenge that it might seem. To expand consciousness, it is enough to be aware of the mystery, even if only in very private moments. Such awareness opens new dimensions to the blossoming of our quests, allowing for new and exciting insights while freeing ourselves, if only a little, from the bonds of illusion. We become more present in the moment, more authentically real and human.
   
The significance of the Holy Grail is not the Grail itself, but our response to its calling. Awareness of the mystery, embracing questions unadulterated by false answers, completes the foundation of who we are.
