Way thought for the day, 2nd April, 2012

Judas said, “Tell us Lord, what was there before the heavens and the earth existed?”

The Lord said, “First there was the drawing together of the dust of the Universe. Then there was darkness and water; and the Spirit of Life came upon water. And I say to you, ‘What you seek after,”even that which you inquire after,”the same is within you. And the power and the mystery of the spirit,”for, from evil and wickedness shall come evil and wickedness of mind,”I bid you behold, for such shall destroy you.”

Way thought for the day, 1st April, 2012

And Thomas said, “Lord, tell us where the spirit of man is established, and where the true mind exists.”

The Lord said, “The fire of the spirit came into existence with the first man; so came they together. On this account the spirit came into existence, and the true mind came into existence within them, both man and spirit. If someone sets his mind up high, then he will be exalted, for his spirit is his deeper mind.”

For those with ears to hear.
