“Tell me, when will the kingdom come?” said Judas Thomas.
“why do you wash out the inside of a cup?
So that you may fill it and drink from it?
Whoever makes good the inside, makes good the outside also.
The kingdom will not come by watching for it.
It will not be said, ‘look, there it is!’ or, ‘look, here it is!’
The kingdom is spread upon the earth but you cannot see it.
The kingdom is within you and without you,
and when you know yourself,
then you will be known and you will understand,
that this heaven will pass away,
and the one above it will pass away also.”
The Living One
