from the Gospel of Thomas

The disciples asked, when will the end be? Jesus answered, “Have you found the beginning that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death.”

In the end,accordingly, we return to the source. The source is the Giver of life. So if the end is in the beginning and the beginning is in the end, where does it end and where does it begin? Round and round are the cycles of life for those who know not the beginning. Thus Jesus admonishes us to find the beginning. Before the beginning of human creation existed the All-Permeating Commander of all, the Sustainer and Maintainer of the universe and all that exists. Accordingly, finding the beginning is one major theme of the life of this world, for it is in the beginning that we will come to know the source of all.

With that said, let us consider the beginning…let us consider the ‘time’ before the beginning. Let us consider the source of all..for it is in the beginning that we will understand that there truly is no end and there truly is no beginning. The mystery within the manifestation and the manifestaion within the mystery.

I thought this song was pertinent to this blog. I like the first few lines the most…
Be at peace and perceive deeper love
Speak only truth and you’ll hear
Let no war come before or between to take life away
Why do we have to lose ourselves so foolishly
Whoa… no, we never find out why
So let out works carry over, through this time all we hope for
Be at peace ’til we rise again

So be at peace / keep your mind clear
Release what you rely or defend
You will fear no one who steps on your island
Who would smile and steal your property in silence
Violence has a dreadful purpose
Hands that work this cause more curses
See down further paths we pave
Do they splinter, break-up or do they remain?

So can the people conspire to dream beyond the day-to-day
We think we see the four walls we design to shutter the soul
We take these licks in life, belief in right we live with our pain
Some fight this, making crisis in our way
