Jesus said, “Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Do you not realize that he who made he inside is the same one who made the outside?”
Jesus said, “Come unto me, for My yoke is easy and My lordship is mild, and you will find repose for yourselves.”
The Gospel of Thomas
But I have heard that he who is skilful in managing the life entrusted to him for a time travels on the land without having to shun rhinoceros or tiger, and enters a host without having to avoid buff coat or sharp weapon. The rhinoceros finds no place in him into which to thrust its horn, nor the tiger a place in which to fix its claws, nor the weapon a place to admit its point. And for what reason?
Because there is in him no place of death.
Tao Te Ching
Remember God and Forget Self
O spirit, make thy head in search and seeking like the water of a stream,
And O reason, to gain Eternal Life tread ever-lastingly the way of Death.
Keep God in remembrance till self is forgotten,
That thou may be lost in the Called, without distraction of caller and call.
