These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke
and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.
And He said, “Whoever finds the interpretation of these
sayings will not experience death.”
Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he
finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes
troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.”
Jesus said, “If those who lead you say, ‘See, the Kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you.
Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you.
When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the livingFather. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”
The Gospel of Thomas
Heaven is long-enduring and earth continues long. The reason
why heaven and earth are able to endure and continue thus long is because they do not live of, or for, themselves. This is how they are able to continue and endure.
Tao Te Ching
Afraid? Of whom am I afraid?
Not death; for who is he?
The porter of my father’s lodge
As much abasheth me.
Of life? ‘T were odd I fear a thing
That comprehendeth me
In one or more existences
At Deity’s decree.
