The Gospel of Thomas

Introduction

There is a growing consensus among scholars that the Gospel of Thomas – discovered over a half century ago in the Egyptian desert – dates to the very beginnings of the Christian era and may well have taken first form before any of the four traditional canonical Gospels. During the first few decades after its discovery several voices representing established orthodox biases argued that the Gospel of Thomas (abbreviated, GTh) was a late-second or third century Gnostic forgery. Scholars currently involved in Thomas studies now largely reject that view, though such arguments will still be heard from orthodox apologists and are encountered in some of the earlier publications about Thomas.

Today most students would agree that the Thomas Gospel has opened a new perspective on the first voice of the Christian tradition. Recent studies centered on GTh have led to a stark reappraisal of the forces and events forming “orthodoxy” during the second and third centuries. But more importantly, the Gospel of Thomas is awakening interest in a forgotten spiritual legacy of Christian culture. The incipit (or “beginning words”) of Thomas invite each of us “who has ears to hear” to join in a unique quest:

These are the hidden words that the living Jesus spoke,
and that Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down. And He said:
“Whoever finds the meaning of these words will not taste death.”

These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.

(1) And he said, “Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.”

(2) Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.”

(3) Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”

(4) Jesus said, “The man old in days will not hesitate to ask a small child seven days old about the place of life, and he will live. For many who are first will become last, and they will become one and the same.”

(5) Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”

(6) His disciples questioned him and said to him, “Do you want us to fast? How shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What diet shall we observe?”
Jesus said, “Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate, for all things are plain in the sight of heaven. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered.”

(7) Jesus said, “Blessed is the lion which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man whom the lion consumes, and the lion becomes man.”

(8) And he said, “The man is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of small fish. Among them the wise fisherman found a fine large fish. He threw all the small fish back into the sea and chose the large fish without difficulty. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.”

(9) Jesus said, “Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure.”

(10) Jesus said, “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”

(11) Jesus said, “This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead, you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?”

(12) The disciples said to Jesus, “We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?”
Jesus said to them, “Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.”

(13) Jesus said to his disciples, “Compare me to someone and tell me whom I am like.”
Simon Peter said to him, “You are like a righteous angel.”
Matthew said to him, “You are like a wise philosopher.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are like.”
Jesus said, “I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out.”
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, “What did Jesus say to you?”
Thomas said to them, “If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up.”

(14) Jesus said to them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.”

(15) Jesus said, “When you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your faces and worship him. That one is your father.”

(16) Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary.”

(17) Jesus said, “I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind.”

(18) The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us how our end will be.”
Jesus said, “Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death.”

(19) Jesus said, “Blessed is he who came into being before he came into being. If you become my disciples and listen to my words, these stones will minister to you. For there are five trees for you in Paradise which remain undisturbed summer and winter and whose leaves do not fall. Whoever becomes acquainted with them will not experience death.”

(20) The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us what the kingdom of heaven is like.”
He said to them, “It is like a mustard seed. It is the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on tilled soil, it produces a great plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky.”

(21) Mary said to Jesus, “Whom are your disciples like?”
He said, “They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, ‘Let us have back our field.’ They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.”

(22) Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, “These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom.”
They said to him, “Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?”
Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom.”

(23) Jesus said, “I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one.”

(24) His disciples said to him, “Show us the place where you are, since it is necessary for us to seek it.”
He said to them, “Whoever has ears, let him hear. There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness.”

(25) Jesus said, “Love your brother like your soul, guard him like the pupil of your eye.”

(26) Jesus said, “You see the mote in your brother’s eye, but you do not see the beam in your own eye. When you cast the beam out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to cast the mote from your brother’s eye.”

(27) <Jesus said,> “If you do not fast as regards the world, you will not find the kingdom. If you do not observe the Sabbath as a Sabbath, you will not see the father.”

(28) Jesus said, “I took my place in the midst of the world, and I appeared to them in flesh. I found all of them intoxicated; I found none of them thirsty. And my soul became afflicted for the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do not have sight; for empty they came into the world, and empty too they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are intoxicated. When they shake off their wine, then they will repent.”

(29) Jesus said, “If the flesh came into being because of spirit, it is a wonder. But if spirit came into being because of the body, it is a wonder of wonders. Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth has made its home in this poverty.”

(30) Jesus said, “Where there are three gods, they are gods. Where there are two or one, I am with him.”

(31) Jesus said, “No prophet is accepted in his own village; no physician heals those who know him.”

(32) Jesus said, “A city being built on a high mountain and fortified cannot fall, nor can it be hidden.”

(33) Jesus said, “Preach from your housetops that which you will hear in your ear. For no one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel, nor does he put it in a hidden place, but rather he sets it on a lampstand so that everyone who enters and leaves will see its light.”

(34) Jesus said, “If a blind man leads a blind man, they will both fall into a pit.”

(35) Jesus said, “It is not possible for anyone to enter the house of a strong man and take it by force unless he binds his hands; then he will (be able to) ransack his house.”

(36) Jesus said, “Do not be concerned from morning until evening and from evening until morning about what you will wear.”

(37) His disciples said, “When will you become revealed to us and when shall we see you?”
Jesus said, “When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them, then will you see the son of the living one, and you will not be afraid”

(38) Jesus said, “Many times have you desired to hear these words which I am saying to you, and you have no one else to hear them from. There will be days when you will look for me and will not find me.”

(39) Jesus said, “The pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge (gnosis) and hidden them. They themselves have not entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to. You, however, be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.”

(40) Jesus said, “A grapevine has been planted outside of the father, but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed.”

(41) Jesus said, “Whoever has something in his hand will receive more, and whoever has nothing will be deprived of even the little he has.”

(42) Jesus said, “Become passers-by.”

(43) His disciples said to him, “Who are you, that you should say these things to us?”
<Jesus said to them,> “You do not realize who I am from what I say to you, but you have become like the Jews, for they (either) love the tree and hate its fruit (or) love the fruit and hate the tree.”

(44) Jesus said, “Whoever blasphemes against the father will be forgiven, and whoever blasphemes against the son will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the holy spirit will not be forgiven either on earth or in heaven.”

(45) Jesus said, “Grapes are not harvested from thorns, nor are figs gathered from thistles, for they do not produce fruit. A good man brings forth good from his storehouse; an evil man brings forth evil things from his evil storehouse, which is in his heart, and says evil things. For out of the abundance of the heart he brings forth evil things.”

(46) Jesus said, “Among those born of women, from Adam until John the Baptist, there is no one so superior to John the Baptist that his eyes should not be lowered (before him). Yet I have said, whichever one of you comes to be a child will be acquainted with the kingdom and will become superior to John.”

(47) Jesus said, “It is impossible for a man to mount two horses or to stretch two bows. And it is impossible for a servant to serve two masters; otherwise, he will honor the one and treat the other contemptuously. No man drinks old wine and immediately desires to drink new wine. And new wine is not put into old wineskins, lest they burst; nor is old wine put into a new wineskin, lest it spoil it. An old patch is not sewn onto a new garment, because a tear would result.”

(48) Jesus said, “If two make peace with each other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move Away,’ and it will move away.”

(49) Jesus said, “Blessed are the solitary and elect, for you will find the kingdom. For you are from it, and to it you will return.”

(50) Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where did you come from?’, say to them, ‘We came from the light, the place where the light came into being on its own accord and established itself and became manifest through their image.’ If they say to you, ‘Is it you?’, say, ‘We are its children, we are the elect of the living father.’ If they ask you, ‘What is the sign of your father in you?’, say to them, ‘It is movement and repose.'”

(51) His disciples said to him, “When will the repose of the dead come about, and when will the new world come?”
He said to them, “What you look forward to has already come, but you do not recognize it.”

(52) His disciples said to him, “Twenty-four prophets spoke in Israel, and all of them spoke in you.”
He said to them, “You have omitted the one living in your presence and have spoken (only) of the dead.”

(53) His disciples said to him, “Is circumcision beneficial or not?”
He said to them, “If it were beneficial, their father would beget them already circumcised from their mother. Rather, the true circumcision in spirit has become completely profitable.”

(54) Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor, for yours is the kingdom of heaven.”

(55) Jesus said, “Whoever does not hate his father and his mother cannot become a disciple to me. And whoever does not hate his brothers and sisters and take up his cross in my way will not be worthy of me.”

(56) Jesus said, “Whoever has come to understand the world has found (only) a corpse, and whoever has found a corpse is superior to the world.”

(57) Jesus said, “The kingdom of the father is like a man who had good seed. His enemy came by night and sowed weeds among the good seed. The man did not allow them to pull up the weeds; he said to them, ‘I am afraid that you will go intending to pull up the weeds and pull up the wheat along with them.’ For on the day of the harvest the weeds will be plainly visible, and they will be pulled up and burned.”

(58) Jesus said, “Blessed is the man who has suffered and found life.”

(59) Jesus said, “Take heed of the living one while you are alive, lest you die and seek to see him and be unable to do so.”

(60) <They saw> a Samaritan carrying a lamb on his way to Judea. He said to his disciples, “That man is round about the lamb.”
They said to him, “So that he may kill it and eat it.”
He said to them, “While it is alive, he will not eat it, but only when he has killed it and it has become a corpse.”
They said to him, “He cannot do so otherwise.”
He said to them, “You too, look for a place for yourself within repose, lest you become a corpse and be eaten.”

(61) Jesus said, “Two will rest on a bed: the one will die, and the other will live.”
Salome said, “Who are you, man, that you … have come up on my couch and eaten from my table?”
Jesus said to her, “I am he who exists from the undivided. I was given some of the things of my father.”
<…> “I am your disciple.”
<…> “Therefore I say, if he is destroyed, he will be filled with light, but if he is divided, he will be filled with darkness.”

(62) Jesus said, “It is to those who are worthy of my mysteries that I tell my mysteries. Do not let your left (hand) know what your right (hand) is doing.”

(63) Jesus said, “There was a rich man who had much money. He said, ‘I shall put my money to use so that I may sow, reap, plant, and fill my storehouse with produce, with the result that I shall lack nothing.’ Such were his intentions, but that same night he died. Let him who has ears hear.”

(64) Jesus said, “A man had received visitors. And when he had prepared the dinner, he sent his servant to invite the guests.
He went to the first one and said to him, ‘My master invites you.’ He said, ‘I have claims against some merchants. They are coming to me this evening. I must go and give them my orders. I ask to be excused from the dinner.’
He went to another and said to him, ‘My master has invited you.’ He said to him, ‘I have just bought a house and am required for the day. I shall not have any spare time.’
He went to another and said to him, ‘My master invites you.’ He said to him, ‘My friend is going to get married, and I am to prepare the banquet. I shall not be able to come. I ask to be excused from the dinner.’
He went to another and said to him, ‘My master invites you.’ He said to him, ‘I have just bought a farm, and I am on my way to collect the rent. I shall not be able to come. I ask to be excused.’
The servant returned and said to his master, ‘Those whom you invited to the dinner have asked to be excused.’ The master said to his servant, ‘Go outside to the streets and bring back those whom you happen to meet, so that they may dine.’ Businessmen and merchants will not enter the places of my father.”

(65) He said, “There was a good man who owned a vineyard. He leased it to tenant farmers so that they might work it and he might collect the produce from them. He sent his servant so that the tenants might give him the produce of the vineyard. They seized his servant and beat him, all but killing him. The servant went back and told his master. The master said, ‘Perhaps he did not recognize them.’ He sent another servant. The tenants beat this one as well. Then the owner sent his son and said, ‘Perhaps they will show respect to my son.’ Because the tenants knew that it was he who was the heir to the vineyard, they seized him and killed him. Let him who has ears hear.”

(66) Jesus said, “Show me the stone which the builders have rejected. That one is the cornerstone.”

(67) Jesus said, “If one who knows the all still feels a personal deficiency, he is completely deficient.”

(68) Jesus said, “Blessed are you when you are hated and persecuted. Wherever you have been persecuted they will find no place.”

(69) Jesus said, “Blessed are they who have been persecuted within themselves. It is they who have truly come to know the father. Blessed are the hungry, for the belly of him who desires will be filled.”

(70) Jesus said, “That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from yourselves. That which you do not have within you will kill you if you do not have it within you.”

(71) Jesus said, “I shall destroy this house, and no one will be able to build it […].”

(72) A man said to him, “Tell my brothers to divide my father’s possessions with me.”
He said to him, “O man, who has made me a divider?”
He turned to his disciples and said to them, “I am not a divider, am I?”

(73) Jesus said, “The harvest is great but the laborers are few. Beseech the Lord, therefore, to send out laborers to the harvest.”

(74) He said, “O Lord, there are many around the drinking trough, but there is nothing in the cistern.”

(75) Jesus said, “Many are standing at the door, but it is the solitary who will enter the bridal chamber.”

(76) Jesus said, “The kingdom of the father is like a merchant who had a consignment of merchandise and who discovered a pearl. That merchant was shrewd. He sold the merchandise and bought the pearl alone for himself. You too, seek his unfailing and enduring treasure where no moth comes near to devour and no worm destroys.”

(77) Jesus said, “It is I who am the light which is above them all. It is I who am the all. From me did the all come forth, and unto me did the all extend. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”

(78) Jesus said, “Why have you come out into the desert? To see a reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine garments like your kings and your great men? Upon them are the fine garments, and they are unable to discern the truth.”

(79) A woman from the crowd said to him, “Blessed are the womb which bore you and the breasts which nourished you.”
He said to her, “Blessed are those who have heard the word of the father and have truly kept it. For there will be days when you will say, ‘Blessed are the womb which has not conceived and the breasts which have not given milk.'”

(80) Jesus said, “He who has recognized the world has found the body, but he who has found the body is superior to the world.”

(81) Jesus said, “Let him who has grown rich be king, and let him who possesses power renounce it.”

(82) Jesus said, “He who is near me is near the fire, and he who is far from me is far from the kingdom.”

(83) Jesus said, “The images are manifest to man, but the light in them remains concealed in the image of the light of the father. He will become manifest, but his image will remain concealed by his light.”

(84) Jesus said, “When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die not become manifest, how much you will have to bear!”

(85) Jesus said, “Adam came into being from a great power and a great wealth, but he did not become worthy of you. For had he been worthy, he would not have experienced death.”

(86) Jesus said, “The foxes have their holes and the birds have their nests, but the son of man has no place to lay his head and rest.”

(87) Jesus said, “Wretched is the body that is dependant upon a body, and wretched is the soul that is dependent on these two.”

(88) Jesus said, “The angels and the prophets will come to you and give to you those things you (already) have. And you too, give them those things which you have, and say to yourselves, ‘When will they come and take what is theirs?'”

(89) Jesus said, “Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Do you not realize that he who made the inside is the same one who made the outside?”

(90) Jesus said, “Come unto me, for my yoke is easy and my lordship is mild, and you will find repose for yourselves.”

(91) They said to him, “Tell us who you are so that we may believe in you.”
He said to them, “You read the face of the sky and of the earth, but you have not recognized the one who is before you, and you do not know how to read this moment.”

(92) Jesus said, “Seek and you will find. Yet, what you asked me about in former times and which I did not tell you then, now I do desire to tell, but you do not inquire after it.”

(93) <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 […] it […].”

(94) Jesus said, “He who seeks will find, and he who knocks will be let in.”

(95) 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.”

(96) Jesus said, “The kingdom of the father is like a certain woman. She took a little leaven, concealed it in some dough, and made it into large loaves. Let him who has ears hear.”

(97) Jesus said, “The kingdom of the father is like a certain woman who was carrying a jar full of meal. While she was walking on the road, still some distance from home, the handle of the jar broke and the meal emptied out behind her on the road. She did not realize it; she had noticed no accident. When she reached her house, she set the jar down and found it empty.”

(98) Jesus said, “The kingdom of the father is like a certain man who wanted to kill a powerful man. In his own house he drew his sword and stuck it into the wall in order to find out whether his hand could carry through. Then he slew the powerful man.”

(99) The disciples said to him, “Your brothers and your mother are standing outside.”
He said to them, “Those here who do the will of my father are my brothers and my mother. It is they who will enter the kingdom of my father.”

(100) They showed Jesus a gold coin and said to him, “Caesar’s men demand taxes from us.”
He said to them, “Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, give God what belongs to God, and give me what is mine.”

(101) <Jesus said,> “Whoever does not hate his father and his mother as I do cannot become a disciple to me. And whoever does not love his father and his mother as I do cannot become a disciple to me. For my mother […], but my true mother gave me life.”

(102) Jesus said, “Woe to the pharisees, for they are like a dog sleeping in the manger of oxen, for neither does he eat nor does he let the oxen eat.”

(103) Jesus said, “Fortunate is the man who knows where the brigands will enter, so that he may get up, muster his domain, and arm himself before they invade.”

(104) They said to Jesus, “Come, let us pray today and let us fast.”
Jesus said, “What is the sin that I have committed, or wherein have I been defeated? But when the bridegroom leaves the bridal chamber, then let them fast and pray.”

(105) Jesus said, “He who knows the father and the mother will be called the son of a harlot.”

(106) Jesus said, “When you make the two one, you will become the sons of man, and when you say, ‘Mountain, move away,’ it will move away.”

(107) Jesus said, “The kingdom is like a shepherd who had a hundred sheep. One of them, the largest, went astray. He left the ninety-nine sheep and looked for that one until he found it. When he had gone to such trouble, he said to the sheep, ‘I care for you more than the ninety-nine.'”

(108) Jesus said, “He who will drink from my mouth will become like me. I myself shall become he, and the things that are hidden will be revealed to him.”

(109) Jesus said, “The kingdom is like a man who had a hidden treasure in his field without knowing it. And after he died, he left it to his son. The son did not know (about the treasure). He inherited the field and sold it. And the one who bought it went plowing and found the treasure. He began to lend money at interest to whomever he wished.”

(110) Jesus said, “Whoever finds the world and becomes rich, let him renounce the world.”

(111) Jesus said, “The heavens and the earth will be rolled up in your presence. And the one who lives from the living one will not see death.” Does not Jesus say, “Whoever finds himself is superior to the world?”

(112) Jesus said, “Woe to the flesh that depends on the soul; woe to the soul that depends on the flesh.”

(113) His disciples said to him, “When will the kingdom come?”
<Jesus said,> “It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying ‘here it is’ or ‘there it is.’ Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it.”

(114) Simon Peter said to him, “Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of life.”
Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven.”

The Gospel
According to Thomas

ALCHEMY

The Key to Life and Death is everywhere to be found, but if you do not find it in your own house, you
will find it nowhere. Yet, it is before everyone’s eyes. No one can live without it. Everyone has used
it. The poor usually possess it more than the rich. Children play with it in the streets. The meek and
uneducated esteem it highly, but the privileged and learned often throw it away. It is the only thing
from which the Philosopher’s Stone can be prepared, and without it, no noble metal can be created.
People who blindly follow socially accepted values, beliefs and behavior are no longer connected to
the Mystery of this thing and therefore “throw it away.”
Medieval Alchemists frequently referred to this thing as “the corner stone the builders forgot.” In
other words, it is something important that is not an integrated part of our current civilization.
Sometimes these intimations are only obvious at quiet times, or when we focus our undivided
attention on the present moment, or enter deep meditation seeking to learn the true nature of reality.
To Alchemists, Consciousness is a force of Nature that can be harnesses and purified through
prayer and meditation and then added to the experiment just like a chemical ingredient.
Magic has the power to experience and fathom things which are inaccessible to human reason. For
Magic is a Great Secret Wisdom, just as reason is a
great public folly.
Within every living thing there exists a Hidden Star that
is that thing’s Quintessence. One of the symbols for
the Quintessence is the Star.
In general terms the “Star” is the truest part of anything,
the Divine Thought that gives things their form and
being.
Too much reliance on intellect instead of intuition will
surely spell disaster for the world.
We have assimilated the Sun’s Masculine Spirit on
Earth, and it has led to great technological advances,
but out Lunar, Feminine Soul has been pushed away
in the process. The Key to Transformation is the
union of Solar and Lunar forces: the Sacred Marriage
of the Sun and the Moon. Instead there exists an
estrangement between them, and correspondingly,
between our own Spirits and Souls.
Our intuition lies in our innocence.
Your head must bow to your Heart.

The Blind Trust In Coercive Authority

“school lunches” “vaccines” “pharmaceutical drugs” We give it all to kids because authority figures told us Or “instructed” us to think its okay, without thinking of the damage those things coud inflict on our own babies and children. That’s the end result of blind trust and belief in authority.

DEAR STATISTS:

As long as you believe that the state can exist in any form (constitution bullshit) you are supporters of slavery.
all this is happening because you still recognize coercive authority as legitimate thus giving the right to psycopathic thugs
to call themselves cops and soldiers so they can murder protestors at home and children at iraq. You are part of the problem
because you think that constitutional government can work instead of recognizing that any form of government or
state is the initiation of violence (“law inforcement”) and theft (“taxation”).
A law obiding tax payer is someone who obeys politicians and gives them his or her money.

Ceoercive Authority is an illusion of a mentally ill person
based entirely in violence and built upon the erroneous and dogmatic belief that
some people are masters who have the moral right to issue commands,
and others are slaves who have a moral obligation to obey the commands of the masters.

Government is a delusion that some people possess that claims
that a gang of thieves “politicians” and murdering thugs “cops and soldiers”
have superhuman rights that allow them to issue orders to other people that
they are morally obligated to follow.

That’s disgusting.

The World We Live In

We live in a world that seems to be far ahead than it sould be.
Our humanity can’t rival our technological advancements.
Our awareness of evil can’t rival the evil that is trying to destroy us.
Our good will can’t rival our hypocrisy.
Our consciousness can’t rival our druged up retarted ego.
We are disconnected with nature because we see her as being outside instead inside of us.
We see things for what they seem to be and not for what they actually are.
We are knee deep in people full of pomposity instead of seriousness.
We deminish intelligence instead of revering it.
We project our problems on other people instead reflecting them to ourselves.
We admire physical beauty instead of spiritual.
We strive for superficiality instead of real understanding of ourselves.
We have advanced technology but we use it to destroy not to create.
We escape reality instead of embracing.
We look for god outside of us istead of inside of us.
We look for a stereotypical father figure to protect us instead of feeling secure within ourselves.
We look to be part of the collective instead of being an individual.
We fight over our differences instead of uniting under ur similarities.
We hate others because we hate ourselves.
We love others because we love ourselves.
We envy others because we don’t know ourselves.
We kill people because we have murdered our true self.
We have been severed from our spirit because we are ruled by our ego.
We mock superficial ugliness because our mind and spirit is ugly.

Tyler Durden Fight Club Wisdom

Tyler Durden:
We’re a generation of men raised by women. I’m wondering if another woman is really the answer we need.

Tyler Durden: Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.
Tyler Durden: The things you own end up owning you.
Tyler Durden: It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do What We Want
Narrator: This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.
Tyler Durden: You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis. You’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
Tyler Durden: Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

Following Orders

Following Orders Means doing what you are told to do without judging for yourself whether or not the action you are being ordered to carry out is right or wrong. obama and bush actually never killed anybody they just whisper in the ear of order following dogs like police and military and they go do it. WHY IS IT CALLED “POLICE “ STATE AND “MILITARY” DICTATORSHIP ? BECAUSE IT’S THE POLICE AND THE MILITARY THAT ACTUALLY DO IT Morality is doing the right thing no matter what you are told. police and military do what they are told no matter what’ the right thing is. police and military are diametrically opposed to morality. Police and Military Are Satanic Cult Members And Pathetic Order-Following Dogs Of Their Banker-Politician Masters They Are The House-Slaves Of The 21st Century,And Their Families And People Who Support Them Are Nazi Lovers. Order-Followingt Of Any Kind (Police Or Military) Is By Definition A Moral Abomination Because If you Take An Action Without Examining If It Is Right Or Wrong By Definition You Are Not Exercising Consciousness Which Makes You An Evil Person. They Are Just Little Boys With Mommy And Daddy Issues Who Never Grew Up And See The Government As Their Surrogate Family And Want To Appease Them By Following Commands. Are you free not to pay taxes? Are you free to disobay a cop? Are you free disagree with a politician? Are you free to oppose the state in any way? What happens if you don’t pay taxes? or disobey a cop? then the state theatens you with violence (gun jail death) take your pick. This is what the state says: YOU ARE FREE TO DO WHAT WE TELL YOU.? You Don’t obey authority police religion or government . You just obey people who call themselves authority police religion or government who try to tell you how you should live your life under the threat of a gun even if you have done nothing wrong. You are basically a slave to other people and You justify it in your mind by giving them a pseudoname “authority police religion or government”. You have allowed other people to be your master. you can justify it and euphimnize it all you want, by saying it’s for security patriotism religion police government authority teacher but it’s still slavery. every time you obey someone else’s orders they are your master and you are their slave.100 pseudonames and 1000 euphimisms won’t change that.
You look at life subjectively or from an emotional prespective i look at life objectively because i care more about the truth than peoples feelings. if you cared for reality and facts instead of appeasing your own Prejudice of what you think the military is, you would have already seen this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtuk08E09cw Live a lie if you want its your own life but i will always prefer the brutal truth to the beautiful lie
Fact! Taxation is theft, Murder is War, and Govts are criminal institutions that have monopolies on violence in a given geographical area and cops are the pawns that are just following orders
cops are never responsible for their actions, we are not angry at cops because they are hired murderers. no we are all being brainwashed by nazis. hitler didnt kill 20 million people it was the nazi cops and military that did it. stalin didnt kill 60 million people it was the soviet cops and military that did it. mao didnt kill 70 million people it was the chinese cops and military that did it. you see alex our anger might be justified. people who commit the evil act (cops and military) are always more culpable than those who give the orders. obama bush and clinton just give speeches they dont kill anyone with their own hands. but through the ACTUAL behaviour of cops and soldiers are all the atrocities manifested into reality. yes so theyare more to blame than the elite. because think about it even if we kill all the elites new world order people. as long as you have people who are willing to follow orders withou thinking then a new elite class will always replace the old one. as long as people dont understand thatf ollowing orders is immoral and evil blaming soros or obama wont do any good in the long run. following orders and obeying authority is what destroys humanity not retarted puppets like soros and obama.
