21 April | Sacred Readings v1

<Jesus said,> “Do not give what is holy to dogs, lest they throw them on the dung-heap. Do not throw the pearls to swine, lest they grind it [to bits].”

Jesus [said], “He who seeks will find, and [he who knocks] will be let in.”

[Jesus said,] “If you have money, do not lend it at interest, but give [it] to one from whom you will not get it back.”

The Gospel of Thomas


52

The perception of what is small is (the secret of clear- sightedness; the guarding of what is soft and tender is (the secret of) strength.

Who uses well his light,
Reverting to its (source so) bright,
Will from his body ward all blight,
And hides the unchanging from men’s sight.

Tao Te Ching


The Voice of Love

Every moment the voice of Love is coming from left and right.
We are bound for heaven: who has a mind to sight-seeing?
We have been in heaven, we have been friends of the angels;
Thither, Sire, let us return, for that is our country.
