‘Sutras’ from St. Thomas (Utterances from Jesus)
A Rebel is in quest, he does not entertain questions from mind and its pre-concepts; for he is life and its perceptions! Rebel is radical change. Revolution is only re-evaluation. Revolution is the darkness of organised cultivation of opposites. Rebel is the delight of freedom from all opposites. Revolution is only a modified continuity of the old, whereas a Rebel is the most sacred and complete resurrection, renewal and re-incarnation.
Both Jesus and Thomas were Rebels. They were flowers of undestanding, while others were and are merely followers with heavy burden of undertakings.
The disciples said to Jesus: “Tell us what the kingdom of heaven is like.”
There is no such thing as heaven or kingdom! All this is fabrication and formulation of a gross and greedy mind. This is a matter of delicate and subtle perception of life (no-mind). That is why analogically it is almost nothing, like a mustard seed which smaller than all seeds! Mission of Jesus was to throw such seeds everywhere. But such a seed must fall on a human being who is ready. He is then available to a vast space full of heavenly bliss and benediction. These are indeed the seeds of freedom from beliefs and bondages of the seperative consciousness. This freedom is the sky or heaven of ecstasy and euphoria.
Jesus said: “Men possibly think that I have come to throw peace upon the world, and they do not know that I have come to throw divisions upon the earth, fire, sword, war.
Very much conflict-ridden due to predominant vanity and vested interest, men expect peace. But peace comes from Awareness (Jesus). An Awareness is the consequence of Swadhyay (sword), Tapas (fire) and Ishwara Pranidhan (war on wickedness).
But Life (Jesus) gives us direct sensory perceptions, not the sensuality with which we are accustomed due to mind. Mind is not available to Intelligence because of the block by its own limited intellect.
Jesus said: “I took my stand in the midst of the world and in flesh I appeared to them.
Flash of Supreme Intelligence hits the flesh of Jesus, His blood cells and bone-marrow. And He finds human beings in illusion, no one has any thirst for truth. They are amused by ideas and interpretations about truth. They waste their life in the futility and fallacy of the mind. They may repent when they wake up!
Jesus said: “Take no thought from the morning until the evening and from the evening until the morning, for what you shall put on.”
Awareness demands total emptiness! Be free from inputs, eventhough inputs may still remain for performing daily tasks. Awareness (Son of Life, Sun of Existence) comes to the innocent. Fear is mind. Mind & fear thus melts into innocence. This is the natural state of life.
Jesus said to them: “If you fast you will beget sin for yourselves; and if you pray you will be condemned; and if you give alms you will do evil to your spirits.
Fasting, praying, self-pity, self-glorification may bring hallucination, hypocrisy and evil of ego-grandisement. Be in harmony with humans around, share and be compassionate. What you eat will nourish your life, what you speak out may defile life to degenerate into mental pollution.
Jesus said: “The kingdom is like a shepherd who had one hundred sheep. One of them went astray which was the largest.
Freedom from the mind is the Kingdom of Heaven. One who is alone, is not isolated; nor does he goes astray! On the contrary, he is ‘all-one’ (alone)! And united with the whole! He does not belong to a particular stupid group for the greed of security and fear of insecurity. Aloneness is ‘no-mind’, the Life-Divine! And the Lord, the Awarenass, Jesus, loves this most!
Jesus said: “The kingdom of the father is like a man, a merchant, who possessed merchandise and found a pearl.
Awareness announced – In freedom (Kingdom of the Father), there is no place for mind – the merchant. But the pearl of perception of ‘no-mind’ is welcome. This is the treasure of truth that never fails, that endures and enlightens, which mental concepts (moth) and words (worm) cannot desecrate or destroy.
Jesus saw children who were being suckled. He said to his disciples: “These children who are being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom.”
Freedom (Kingdom) is avalaible to innocents, not to ignorants. One enters into freedom through non-duality, by denial of opposites at every level of embodied consciousness of human beings.
Jesus said: “The mote that is in thy brother’s eye thou seest, but the beam that is in thine eye thou seest not.
No one can see one’s own eye, unless there is a mirror in front. Let your eye be a mirror to others and make sure your own vision remains clear without contamination from the vulgarity of vanity.
Jesus said: “It is impossible for a man to mount two horses and to stretch two bows; and it is impossible for a servant to serve two masters, otherwise he will honor the one and offend the other.”
Awareness and ambition do not go together, belief and bliss cannot be combined, truth and theology cannot be served simultaneously. Hypocrisy and pretention cannot reach Holy perception.
Jesus said: “A city being built on a high mountain and fortified, cannot fall nor can it ever be hidden.”
Awareness is at the height. Awareness shouts at and shocks others. It cannot be hidden in a church. But it is not the propaganda by a political or a religious thug. Beaware of the second-hand harangue of such blind people. A blind can not lead another blind, because both may then fall into a pit!
Jai Jesus Christ, Jai Thomas!
