Interesting contrast point on the One from the Gospel of Thomas...

 

50. Jesus said, "If they say to you, 'Where have you come from?' say to them, 'We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.' If they say to you, 'Is it you?' say, 'We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father.' If they ask you, 'What is the evidence of your Father in you?' say to them, 'It is motion and rest.'"

 

Great comparison. Thank you for sharing. 

 

What struck me about the Apocryphon of John text was how unlike the other gospels it is. It almost reads like a Daoist text or something.

The World of Spirits

 

"Lady Mary was in a village giving teachings, and a man said to her, "My Lady, you speak of the Lord of Spirits and the play of spirits in the world, both spirits of light and spirits of darkness. Yet, these do not appear to us in the world. Where do these spirits dwell?" She said to him, "My brother, the world of spirits is hidden within and behind the world that appears, and it is veiled by the appearances of this world. The spirits play in the hearts and minds of human beings, some seeking good, some evil. Many are neither good nor evil, but something admixed. To know the Lord of Spirits is to gain discernment of the spirits and to no longer be bound to the play of spirits. The Annointed is the Lord of Spirits, for he was raised up in a spiritual body and ascended into the Supernal Abode." Then the man asked Mary, "Knowing the Lord of Spirits, do we invoke spirits?" She said to him, "We are no longer the slaves of the archons or the spirits. Yet, truly, we do invoke the spirits, for we are to impart the Spirit of Truth to visible and invisible spirits so that all might be uplifted in the body of the Human One." He said to her, "How can we believe in and invoke what we do not see?" She said to him, "We speak of love and we love, but no one has ever seen love. It is the same in spiritual things. Yet, when one awakens, they can see. It is only while we sleep that we cannot see because our eyes are closed.  Pray to the Lord of Spirits to awaken you!" -St Mary Magdalene by Tau Malachi p 94

  """This heaven shall pass away, and the heaven above it will pass away." If this is true of the heavens, then it is equally true of everything else in Creation.  Everything shall pass away, everything is in flux, everything is changing and will change--even the heavens, or higher states of awareness change. This is the truth of creative evolution.  With each emergence of a higher state of consciousness, a new heaven and new earth come into being, the former heaven and earth transforming into a new realm of manifestation. There is no end in sight to this process, for our teachers tell us that, following the attainment of Messianic consciousness, evolution continues towards ever more refined and higher states of consciousness-being, although indeed such states are far beyond our present capacity to imagine or comprehend.  Thus we understand that seeking to live forever, even in the highest heavenly state, is a desire founded upon ignorance and inherently deluded.  The very truth and nature of reality and our own consciousness-being is different than that. God is quite different than we think!" "The Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas" Tau Malachi p. 36
