Yva followed on Abadam’s heels, “O Abadam,”
she cried, “you have walked in the garden in the
east, where every precious stone was your covering.
You were a sealer of the sum, whose works and trappings were
prepared, and set all about you, on the day you were created.
You were a guardian of the Holy-Mountain,
anointed in the shadow of the Sacred-Tree.
You were perfect in wisdom and filled with beauty,
and you walked with the Spirit amidst the stones-of-fire.
Yet, for me, you have relinquished all of this.
I will come with you, wherever you may go.”…
THE LIVING ONE
Caravan to Cairns
Two young men, a road trip across the Australian Outback, strange encounters in isolated settlements… and a book that will change one of them forever.
From the harsh heat of the dusty road to the cool of the Temple, two stories… one immediate, one timeless… intertwine to illuminate each other.
Many scholars believe that the Gospel of Thomas preserves a glimpse into the oral tradition of the Essenes. The book is a collection of sayings, parables and dialogues attributed to Jesus. In this unique interpretation author and essayist, Stuart France brings the oral tradition to life, retelling the Gospel in his own words, in the way it may have been told around the hearth-fires of our fore-fathers.
Accompanied by in-depth comments which draw upon the Mystery School Tradition, The Living One provides a new window on an age-old story.
