A scriptorian friend sent this quote along a few days ago:
“When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons [and daughters!] of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty, and it is you who are that poverty.” (The Gospel of Thomas, The Nag Hammadi Library, James M. Robinsoon, General Editor, Harper & Row, 1977, p. 118) Is that not amazing? The Nag Hammadi texts were found in Egypt in the 1940’s and are said to be writings of ancient apostles and other spiritual leaders.
