A Saturday Pontification – From JC Himself

This week’s wise saying is a quote from Jesus Christ, taken from the Gospel According to Thomas, which did not make it into the canonical Bible, but which has, nevertheless, timeless wisdom contained within it.

~~~~~

“Everyone who seeks should continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will be troubled at the contemplation of Truth, but when he has passed through the time of trouble, he will be astonished at the brightness of the Light, for the Way of Truth is the Pathway to the Eternal Godhead, and the price of the beatific vision is the wringing of the soul. The person who desires to rise above all things must descend below all things, for the way to the heights passes through the depths of anguish, which generate the fires of Life. The person who has suffered and found Life is blessed.”

    Deep. I’ve read the Thomas Gospel, also some of the other gnostic gospels-like the Gospel of Mary. Awesome stuff, I wish so much of it had been put into the “accepted” Bible.

    Thanks Marvin for this piece of wisdom. Sometimes when you’re down, you need words that can guide you.

    That brought back memories of my dear mother, she was always saying “Seek and he shall find.”

    Thanks for the memory,
    Yvonne.
