The Light Within


Whoever Knows the All

Thom 67:x Jesus said: Whoever knows the All but fails to know himself lacks everything.


If You Bring Forth That Within Yourselves

Thom 70:x Jesus said: If you bring forth that within yourselves, that which you have will save you. If you do not have that within yourselves, that which you do not have within you will kill you.


When You Make the Two One

Thom 22:x Jesus saw children who were being suckled. He said to his disciples: These children who are being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom. They said to Him: Shall we then, being children, enter the Kingdom? Jesus said to them: When you make the two one, and when you make the inner as the outer and the outer as the inner and the above as the below, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male will not be male and the female not be female, when you make eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in the place of a hand, and a foot in the place of a foot, and an image in the place of an image, then shall you enter the Kingdom.


Thom 106:x Jesus said: When you make the two one, you shall become sons of Man, and when you say: "Mountain, be moved," it will be moved.


He That is the Same

Thom 61:x Jesus said: Two will rest on a bed: one will die, the one will live. Salome said: Who art thou, man, and whose son: Thou didst take thy place upon my bench and eat from my table. Jesus said to her: I am He who is from the Same, to Me was given from the things of My Father. Salome said: I am Thy disciple. Jesus said to her: Therefore I say, if he is the Same, he will be filled with light, but if he is divided, he will be filled with darkness.
