The hidden message in the Black Knight fight scene that will save your life


The hidden message in the Black Knight fight scene that will save your life...

Make sure you watch the above fight scene before reading this.


Okay, let's dive in.

Monty Python were a British comedy troupe formed in 1969 consisting of Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. The group came to prominence for the sketch comedy series Monty Python's Flying Circus, which aired on the BBC from 1969 to 1974. Their work then developed into a larger collection that included live shows, films, albums, books, and musicals; their influence on comedy has been compared to the Beatles' influence on music. Their sketch show has been called "an important moment in the evolution of television comedy".

In the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975) there is a famous scene whereby King Arthur comes across the Black Knight.

Spoiler alert coming up - so watch the above video now if you haven't already!

In the film scene, the unbeatable and skilled Black Knight refuses to let King Arthur proceed on his quest and so a sword fight ensues.

At first you think the Black Knight - who has effortlessly killed several of King Arthur's men - will also kill King Arthur just as easily.

PAUSE: I would like you to now jump on my analogy bandwagon so that you can see the hidden message that will change your life for the better.

PLAY: I believe the initial thought you have that the Black Knight is going to kill King Arthur very easily, I believe it represents all of us humans (aka YOU TOO) when we are young and innocent.

When you were young and innocent you hadn't yet been knocked down by life. You had dreams of being an astronaut or a leader or a famous athlete or whatever. The point is you felt you would nail this thing we call "Life".

And then you start experiencing life.

As the sword fight scene develops, you see the opposite happen. Instead of the Black Knight beating King Arthur, instead you see King Arthur start to defeat the Black Knight with several well placed blows of his sword.

Jumping back to the analogy, this cutting off of limbs and being knocked down represents life.

The older you get the more and more blows life gives you.

This point is crucial. The blows and knock downs are normal. This is living. And as tough as it feels and is, it is beautiful. It is the zoomed in personal view we each all have on life.

If you did not get knock downs and mental blows by way of bad health, relationship breakups, death of loved ones, job losses etc you would not be alive.

The critical - THE ABSOLUTELY LIFE CHANGING - point is. Just like the Black Knight. No matter what blows you are dealt with in life. YOU MUST MAINTAIN AN UNBEATABLE MINDSET THAT YOU ARE NOT DEFEATED!

And that is what happens in the fight scene. The Black Knight is well and truly beaten in the eyes of King Arthur, but to the Black Knight he is still the victor and ready to keep fighting.

If you can read this post and truly digest the message that is being demonstrated by the Black Knight, then you will right now live a better life.

If your partner leaves you, instead of maintaining a negative outlook on relationships you will think, "Okay that relationship ended, who's next?!"

If you lose your job, instead of feeling you are not good enough you will think, "Such a shame that company has missed out on my talents, but I am so excited to show another company what I can do!"

If someone you love gets bad news about their health and or dies, instead of feeling saddened for too long (obviously some sadness is needed) you will think, "The fact I feel such pain and empathy shows how blessed I am to be in touch with the love I have for this person in life and in the after life, as long as I keep loving them no harm can ever come to our relationship"

Okay, I am getting a bit preachy now... you get what I am saying - but do you? Do you really? Are you going to be one of those people who read this post, nod their head in agreement, and moments later start wallowing in negative thoughts.

Seriously, if you can just adopt a small amount of the Black Knights fighting spirit, then you will be in for an amazing life, starting right now!
