Notes About Today's PODCAST: The Meaning and Lessons of the Nag Hammadi Library Discovery
The Gospel of the Egyptians: "The great Seth wrote this book… He placed it in the mountain... in order that, at the end of the times and the eras… it may come forth and reveal... the great, invisible, eternal Spirit… The Gospel of the Egyptians. The God-written, holy, secret book." (Gospel of the Egyptians, The Nag Hammadi Library)
“And there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. There is nothing buried that will not be raised!” (Saying of Jesus, Greek Gospel of Thomas)
In December 1945 a collection of ancient scriptures – fifty-two books – was unearthed near the village of Nag Hammadi in Egypt. These texts had been placed in a clay storage jar, sealed, and buried sometime during the Fourth Century AD. Monks who lived at a nearby monastery founded by Saint Pachomius most likely hid them there at the time. They would have been sacred texts once part of the library of this monastic community, one of several Pachomian monasteries operating in Egypt during those days.
Rather than confining themselves to only reading the Old and New Testaments or teachings exclusively from Orthodox Christian sources, these monks had a surprisingly diverse collection of writings that can only be characterized as inter-faith and multi-traditional. In other words, they were also studying the scriptures of other teachers, sages, religions and “cousin” esoteric mystical movements of their day.
Love and Goodness are the Beginning of the Way: Judas asked, “Where does the Path begin?” Jesus answered, “It begins with love — love and goodness.” (An apocryphal gospel preserved in the Nag Hammadi Library called Dialogue with the Savior)
"Knock on yourself as upon a door, and walk upon yourself as on a straight road. For if you walk on the road, it is impossible for you to go astray. And if you knock with this one (Wisdom), you knock on hidden treasures..... My son, do not allow your mind to stare downward, but rather, let it look by means of the Light at things above. For the Light will always come from above. Even if it (the mind) is upon the earth, let it seek to pursue the things above. Enlighten your mind with the Light of heaven, so that you may turn to the Light of heaven." (The Teachings of Silvanus, in, The Nag Hammadi Library -- one of the Gnostic texts from Egypt)
“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.”
(Yeshua, Saying Three, The Gospel of Thomas — Wisdom of the Twin, Lynn Bauman translation)
"There was within me a stillness of silence, and I heard the Blessedness whereby I knew my real self.....And I turned to myself and saw the Light that surrounded me and the Good that was in me, I became divine." (Allogenes, "The Stranger" or "Foreigner" -- a passage from the book of Allogenes in, Nag Hammadi Library of Egypt)
God is the Ocean of Love.
