My fellow human, I am with you on your greatly expansive quest towards a greater truth for humanity and the the spririt within, I welcome those who will challenege me with there doctrinal dogma and diatribe. I have the nous and fortitued to reply to any challenge from a bigotted mind. As I am sure you do as well. Anyway enough of my support rhetoric. He is something I would like to share from the Gospel of Tomas Didymus:

Jesus said, "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."

Jesus said, "If you say that the abode of the Gods is in the sky, the birds will arrive there before you. If you say it is in the sea, the fish will arrive there before you. Know that the heavenly realm is both inside you and outside you, and you will know that which is outside by that which is inside. When you have found the Light within yourselves, you will know as you are known. Then you will know that you are the children of the Living Parents and that your destiny is to be as they are. The person who knows not himself, is poor in Spirit, for he is his own poverty."

From the hidden books of Jesus disregarded by Christians Religious Rulers of the past.
