Romans 13, 11-12 The daylight is the light of awareness transcending all symbols and yet immanent within them all.
“I am the light that is over all things. I am all. All came forth from me and all attained to me. Split a piece of wood; I am there. Lift up a stone, and you will find me there.” “Whoever has ears ought to listen. There is light within an enlightened person, and it shines on the whole world.”
“If some say to you, ‘Where have you come from?’ say to them ‘We have come from the light, where the light came into being by itself, established itself, and then appeared as an image of light.”
Gospel of Thomas Who or what then is ‘Jesus’? What does this name symbolise. It has long been understood that sound is a hidden link between outer symbols and their inner sense. Sounds attract, condense and quite literally per-sonify these inner senses:
JHVH the unutterable Hebrew name of God the Father
JHSVH the name as inscribed on a Jewish phylactery
‘Jesus’ - Jeshua, JHSVH, Jeshiva, Je-s(h)iva – “I am S(h)iva”
‘SHIVA’ – the divine light of awareness inside and around all things. ‘The Kingdom’ within and without. The eternal well-spring of all experiencing, all images and symbols, and all powers or SHAKTIS.
JESHUA spoke, saying:
“I am not your teacher. You have become intoxicated because you have drunk from the bubbling spring that I have tended.” Gospel of Thomas
