Logion 1: Mystery

I who write this am Thomas, the Double, the Twin.
Yeshua, the Living Master spoke,
and his secret sayings I have written down.

I assure you, whoever grasps their meaning
will not know the taste of death.

Logion 2: Seekers

Yeshua says...

If you are searching, you must not stop until you find.
When you find, however, you will become troubled.
Your confusion will give way to wonder.
In wonder you will reign over all things.
Your sovereignty will be your rest.

Logion 3: Essence

Yeshua says...

If your spiritual guides say to you,
"Look, the Divine Realm is in the sky,"
well then the birds will get there ahead of you.
If they say, "It is in the sea,"
then the fish will precede you.

No, divine Reality exists
inside and all around you.
Only when you have come to know your true Self
will you be fully known-- realizing at last that you are
a child of the Living One.
If, however, you never come to know who you truly are,
you are a poverty-stricken being,
and it is your "self" which lies impoverished.

Logion 4: Childlike

Yeshua says...

A person of advanced age must go immediately
and ask an infant born just seven days
about life's source.
Such asking leads to life
when what is first becomes last.
United they become a single whole.

Logion 5: Hidden

Yeshua says...

Come to know the One in the presence before you,
and everything hidden from you will be revealed.
For there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed,
and nothing buried that will not be raised.

Logion 6: Sainthood

His students asked him,
"Do you want us to fast?"
"How shall we pray?"
"Should we give offerings?"
"From what foods must we abstain? "

Yeshua answered,
"Stop lying.
Do not do what you hate,
because everything here lies open before heaven.
Nothing hidden will remain secret,
for the veil will be stripped away
from what lies concealed behind it."

Logion 7: Blessing

Yeshua says...

A lion eaten by a man is blessed
as it changes to human form,
but a human devoured by a lion
is cursed as lion becomes human.

Logion 8: Deeper

Yeshua says...

A true human being
can be compared to a wise fisherman
who casts his net into the sea
and draws it up from below full of small fish.
Hidden among them
is one large, exceptional fish
which he seizes immediately,
throwing back all the rest without a second thought.
Whoever has ears let them understand this.

Logion 9: Labyrinth

Yeshua says...

A farmer went out to plant,
scattering seed everywhere.
Some seeds fell on the surface of the road,
and the birds came and ate them.
Others fell on rocky ground
and could not take root in the earth,
and so never germinated.
Still other seed fell among the weeds and brambles,
which choked it out and insects devoured.
Some, however, fell onto fertile soil
which produced fruit of high quality,
yielding as much as sixty
and one-hundred and twenty percent.

Logion 10: Separation

Yeshua says...

See, I have sown fire into the cosmos,
and I shall guard it carefully until it blazes.

Logion 11: Freedom

Yeshua says...

The sky and all that lies in the dimensions above it
will cease to exist.

The dead know nothing of life, and the living will never die.

When you consume that which is already dead,
you are turning it back into life.
So, then, when you too re-emerge into the Light,
what will you do?

For on the day when you were created one,
you also became two,
but when you come to realize your twoness again,
what will you do?

Logion 12: Adrift

His students said,
"We know we cannot hold on to you,
so who will lead us then?

Yeshua said,

"Wherever it is that you find yourselves,
turn to James, one of the Just
for whom heaven and earth have come into being."

Logion 13: I Am

Yeshua asked his students,
"Tell me, then, who am I like?
To whom will you compare me?"

Simon Peter said,
"You are like a just angel."
Matthew said,
"You are a philosopher of wisdom."
Thomas said,
"Master, I cannot find words to express who you really are."

Yeshua said,
"Thomas, it is no longer necessary for me to be your Master
for you are drinking from the gushing spring
I have opened for you,
and you have become intoxicated."

Then Yeshua took Thomas aside
and spoke three sayings to him in private.
When Thomas returned to the company of his companions
they, of course, asked him,
"What did Yeshua say to you?"
"If I were to tell you
even one of the things he spoke to me," Thomas replied,
"you would pick up these rocks and stone me,
and then fire would blaze out of them and burn you."

Logion 14: The Path

Yeshua says...

If you fast
you will only be giving birth to sin in yourself.
If you pray,
your prayers will come back to haunt you.
If you give to charity,
you will create evil within your own spirit.

If, however, you travel through a region
and they welcome you,
eat whatever is put in front of you,
and heal their sick.
For it is not what goes into your mouth which contaminates you,
but what comes out of it.

Logion 15: Homecoming

Yeshua says...

When the time comes
and you are able to look upon the Unborn One,
fall prostrate in worship,
for you have found your own true Father,
(your Source and Origin at last).

Logion 16: Comfort

Yeshua says...

Some of you are thinking perhaps
that I have come into the cosmos to bring it peace.
No! You do not yet realize
that I have come to throw it into utter chaos
through burning, blade, and battle.

Five will be living in one household.
Three will face off against two,
and two against three.
Parents will rise up against children,
and children against their parents,
until at last they shall stand as one on their own feet.

Logion 17: Beyond

Yeshua says...

What your own eyes cannot see,
your human ears do not hear,
your physical hands cannot touch,
and what is inconceivable to the human mind--
that I will give to you!

Logion 18: Destiny

His student said to him,
"So, tell us, then, what our end and destiny will be?"

Yeshua answered,

"Have you already discovered your origin
so that you are now free to seek after your end?
It is only at your source that you will find your destiny.
Blessed are those who come to stand
in their place of origination,
for it is there that they will know their end--
never tasting death."

Logion 19: Unchanging

Yeshua says...

Blessed are all who come to live
at the point of arising--
their "genesis,"
before they came into temporality.

If you become my students,
listening deeply to my words,
even these stones will serve you.

And in paradise five evergreen trees await you.
They do not change in summer
nor shed their leaves in winter.
If you come to know them,
you will not know the taste of death.

Logion 20: Abundance

His students said to him,
"Tell us about this kingdom of yours in the heavens.
What is it like?"

Yeshua answered them,

"Let me compare it to a mustard seed,
the smallest of all seeds.
When it falls into prepared ground,
it grows into a great tree
capable of sheltering the birds of the sky."

Logion 21: Attention

Miriam said,
"Then tell us, Master, what your students are like.
How would you describe them?"

He answered,
"They are like small children
living in a field not their own.
When the landlords return and demand,
'Give us back our field!'
the children return it by simply stripping themselves
and standing naked before them.

So then, I must also tell you this:
If a householder knows for sure
that thieves are coming to steal his goods,
he will keep careful watch before they get there
to prevent them from tunneling in and taking his possessions.

You too, from your beginnings,
must keep a watchful eye on the cosmos,
binding great power to yourselves
so that thieves cannot find a way to get to you.
Pay attention then.
Any outside help you look for they will try to seize first.

May there be someone among you who truly understands this.

So listen carefully, if you have an ear for this!
When the fruit was ripe, ready to burst,
the harvester came quickly, sickle in hand, and took it.
