Good news of Thomas 2
The second saying of Jesus, kept in the Gospel of Thomas by Didymo Judas Thomas, one of the twelve pupils, found in Nag Hammadi, teaches:
Jesus says: “The person who looks for shouldn’t stop looking for until he finds. Also, when he observes he will be disheartened. Also, when he is alarmed, he will be amazed, And he will be ruler over the All.”
“The person who looks for.” Knowing or not, we are for the most part searchers. The issue is that many look for in some unacceptable spot.
Bliss in some unacceptable spot
This helps me to remember a Nasrudin story: Nasrudin, a folkloric character of the Sufi practice, lost his ring and was looking for it. A companion came and began helping him on the pursuit. After numerous minutes of unbeneficial chase, the companion inquired: “Are you certain you lost the ring here?” Nasrudin answered: “I’m certain I didn’t.” The companion was astounded: “I don’t get it. For what reason are we looking here?” To what Nasrudin replied: “The spot I lost it is excessively dull. Here, we have the light to facilitate our pursuit.”
Is it safe to say that you are giggling? What number of individuals search for bliss in new houses, new vehicles, new material merchandise that can’t be taken to the next life? Like Nasrudin, they might be searching for joy under the light since it is simpler.
The quest for joy
Doing this futile hunt in the main portion of live is OK. All things considered, it is a method for fortifying the inner self, and we really want one for the final part of life, when the inquiry is harder. However at that point, we need to change our targets.
The world fantasies convey illustrations forever, and one I especially Gospel of Thomas like is Parsifal’s Grail search. In his first visit to the Grail Castle, he doesn’t have the foggiest idea what to ask and loses his first open door. Most likely he was considering fight triumphs, acclaim and fortunes. He needs to look for a long time, endure, surrender, before he gets back to the Castle knowing what to do.
Jesus said that “one who looks for shouldn’t stop looking for until he finds.” And you will be alarmed by how close you have generally been from what you looked. Also, you will be shocked to figure out how straightforward is the solution to your concerns.
“Also, you will be lord over All.” The world is yours, and you are its top dog. Not the world you were searching for, but rather the one that truly matters. The universe of the soul.
