And When You Know Yourselves

Peace, one and all…

Jesus said, ‘If those who push you around say to you, ‘Behold, the kingdom is in the sky,’ the birds of the sky would enter her before you. And if they say to you that she is under the earth in the watery abyss, then the fish of the sea would enter her before you. But the kingdom of God is both inside you and manifest to the outer eye. One who knows oneself will find the kingdom, and when you know yourselves, you will be known, and you will see that you are children of the living father. But if you do not know who you are, you will dwell in poverty and you will be that poverty’

Gospel of Thomas 3, trans. Samuel Zinner
