From .... The Gospel of Thomas (50 AD)


  1. (GoTh / 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."

    "The economic order here discussed is a natural order only in the sense that it is adapted to the nature of man. It is not an order which arises spontaneously as a natural product. Such an order does not, indeed, exist, for the order which we impose upon ourselves is always an act, an act consciously willed."

    Silvio Gesell

    "The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion."

    Arthur C. Clarke

    It definitely has a "Mystic" flavor to it.
    Thanks for sharing it.
