Jesus said, “Grapes are not harvested from thorns, nor are figs gathered from thistles, for they do not produce fruit. A
good man brings forth good from his storehouse; an evil man brings forth evil things from his evil storehouse, which is in
his heart, and says evil things. For out of the abundance of the heart he brings forth evil things.”
The Gospel of Thomas
The course and nature of things is such that
What was in front is now behind;
What warmed anon we freezing find.
Strength is of weakness oft the spoil;
The store in ruins mocks our toil.
Hence the sage puts away excessive effort, extravagance, and easy indulgence.
Tao Te Ching
When the Logos comes forth from “the bosom of the Father” in that “Day” when He is said to be “begotten,” the dawn of the Day of Creation, of Manifestation, when by Him God “made the worlds,” He by His own will limits Himself, making as it were a sphere enclosing the Divine Life, coming forth as a radiant orb of Deity, the Divine Substance, Spirit within and limitation, or Matter, without. This is the veil of matter which makes possible the birth of the Logos, Mary, the World-Mother, necessary for the manifestation in time of the Eternal, that Deity may manifest for the building of the worlds.
