As ABOVE So BELOW
When EARTH (below) resembles HEAVEN (above) = the kingdom will come
when the carnal -flesh resembles the divine-mind = the kingdom will come
When the laws of NATURE = DIVINE laws are in our hearts and minds and do them without thinking the kingdom will come
Thy Kingdom COME, Thy WILL be done on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN
I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God. -John 20:17

When you come to Know Yourselves, then you will become Known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. - Gospel of THOMAS
When Earthlings learn that they are NOT the body or the house,
but merely the OCCUPANT of the body or house, they can build homes anywhere they will, for they too will become masters of the elements instead of being mastered by them.
According to the New Testament, Jesus said to his disciples:
‘To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but for others they are in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand’ (Luke, 8:10). While speaking to the multitude in a veiled manner, ‘privately to his own disciples he explained everything’ (Mark, 4:34),
and advised them not to ‘throw your pearls before swine’ (Matthew, 7:6)
You must receive the RESURRECTION(kingdom) before you die not after you die ....it will be too late
You must agree to the Divine Laws of CREATION NOW ....while you are still in your material BODY
Those who say they will die first and then rise are in error. If they do not first receive the resurrection while they live, when they die they will receive nothing
Gospel of Philip
For this person is no longer a Christian but 'a Christ'.
Gospel of Philip
We don't just go to the Kingdom when we die.... We have to receive it, believe it and revive it in our hearts before we die ... We have to agree to be servants of the Eternal Laws....agree to Laws of Creation over our own while we still have free will....
Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, 'The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you...
Luke 17: 20 - 21
If your leaders say to you 'Look! The Kingdom is in the heavens! Then the birds will be there before you are. If they say that the Kingdom is in the sea, then the fish will be there before you are. Rather, the Kingdom is within you and it is outside of you.
Gospel of Thomas ...
- obi wan kenobi quotes:
The Force has been with you always...
because the Force is YOU
The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.
I exist within the creation and at the same time outside the creation. I am the all-pervading Supreme Lord who exists everywhere, in everything, and at all times.
the power of God is within you at all times and is constantly doing all the work using you as a mere instrument. Yogiraj Mumtaz Ali says: The one who fully knows oneself as a mere instrument and a playground of mother Nature (Prakriti, mind), knows the Truth.
Cessation of all desires by realizing the true essence of the world and the human mind is Self-realization.
What you seek after (is) within you.
~The Dialogue of the Savior
Beware that no one lead you astray, saying ‘Lo here!’ or ‘Lo there!’ For the Son of Man is within you. Follow after him! Those who seek him will find him.
~The Gospel of Mary
Note the common words “within you”. They may sound innocent enough but they’re really quite radical. After all, if what we seek after is inside us, it cuts out the need for a middleman to reach God. Which may explain why in the early church and even today the Gnostic Gospels are considered religious texts non grata.
Other books continue this theme by pointing out the rich rewards and wisdom that can be found by looking within. Again, all of these passages are said to be the actual words of Jesus:
He who has known himself has…already achieved knowledge about the depth of all.
~The Book of Thomas The Contender
Those who have come to know themselves will enjoy their possessions.
~Gospel of Phillip
That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from yourselves.
~Gospel of Thomas
There are also several additional interesting passages from the Gospel of Thomas, which many scholars think was written before the four traditional Gospels of the Bible. A common theme is that God and the Kingdom of Heaven are right in front of us, here on this Earth, if we can only learn to see them:
We have the POWER to be one with the Eternal and nature....it will ALL work FOR US not against us.....
once we awaken our HEARTS and turn from OUR evil arrogant WAYS
that lead to war, disease, destruction and chaos !
The Kingdom is inside of you and it is outside of you.
~Gospel of Thomas
Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not become manifest.
~Gospel of Thomas
His disciples said, “When will the Kingdom come?” 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.
~Gospel of Thomas
"You must feel the force around you.
Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock... everywhere!
Yes, even between this land and that ship!"
SCIENCE: we are all ONE
But it’s not just ancient religious texts or near death experiences that teach these concepts. There is also considerable evidence in science as well, it’s just that they use different terms to describe the same things. The single most famous scientific equation in the world is Einstein’s E=mc2, where Einstein proved that all matter (m) is just another form of energy (E). So absolutely everything in the universe is created from one substance- energy.
Energy itself has unique characteristics that are summed up in one of the fundamental principles of physics: the law of conservation of energy/matter. According to that universally accepted law of physics energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only be transformed from one state to another. In other words energy has no beginning- it has always existed, and it cannot be destroyed- it will always exist. In other words energy is eternal.
So the entire universe is created from one substance, and that one substance is eternal. What the scientist call energy, the religious call God.
Yes, we are all God's children.
we are the children of the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 14:1
All of you are children of the most High. Psalm 82:6
Ye are the sons of the living God. Hosea 1:10
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:48 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Matthew 6:9
Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. John 20:17
We are the offspring of God. Acts 17:29
The Word according to the gospel of Thomas also says this,
"Jesus said: Whoever drinks from my mouth will become like me; I myself shall become that person, and the hidden things will be revealed to him."
In other words, to literally become Christ, the only begotten Son.
Also according to Jesus,
"Where there are three deities, they are divine. Where there are two or one, I am with that one."
Gita Krishna's message, like that of his counterpart in the ... Master Swami Muktananda expressed it for our time, "God dwells within you as you.
