This is the interpretation of The Gospel of Thomas, by James.
I would like to clarify some data. The translated eye, mentioned over and over again in the bible is not an eye (spell out) it is the “I”, the letter I, which is the closest descriptive reference the mind and body has created to describe “True SELF”; the “LIFE” which constitutes the form, along with the “LIVES” which dwell within.
It is my contention the “form” is a piece of one, dormant, sleeping “LIFE” line. The dormancy was the result of an extinction level event. An extinction does not kill a “LIFE” line or its parts, it just puts it to rest for another day; this day!
It is also my contention there are only three primary states of existence we need to concern “ourselves” with; active “LIFE”, dormant “LIFE” and the non-living. We are a combination of two separate “LIFE” lines; formed of a dormant “LIFE” line and instilled with an active “LIVES” from another “LIFE” line. One is “CHRIST” and one is a branch of “MAN”, but “i” do not know which one is which.
This branch of “Man” does not wish to return to its “LIVING” source and does not want to evolve; this is where “we” come in to the picture. They do not want to go home; neither forward or backward. It is similar to not wishing to go back to the dirt, nor willing to change; so we will not have to.
The Gospel of Thomas is a representation of one active “LIFE”; the life of “CHRIST”, speaking to either the active “LIFE” which dwells within or the dormant “LIFE” which dwells without, using a piece of dormant “LIFE” to do so.
Active life is “LIVING”, dormant life is “LIVE” and what dormant “LIFE” creates or allows to be created while asleep, is dead! This is a very important aspect to consider.
The Gospel of Thomas is active “LIFE”, speaking to active “LIFE”; not the same generation of “LIFE” or “LIFE” line, but both active “LIVING” representation of “GOD”, none the less.
The Gospel of Thomas translations begins – These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.
(Clarification – The “LIVING” Jesus is the “I” of Jesus, not the mind and body of Jesus. Didymos Judas Thomas is the dormant, sleeping “form”, which was tasked to write down what the “I” of Jesus spoke to the active “LIFE”, which dwelled within or to the piece of “LIFE”, which dwells without.)
Verse #1 – And he said, “Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.
(Interpretation as it relates to the sleeping piece of “life” – The “LIFE” which constitutes the “form” of the physical mind and body cannot die. It can stay “live” as dormant, but will not experience death. This is just a perception of a dormant, sleeping, un-evolved piece of “LIFE”.
(The Opportunity for the dormant “LIFE” line is to become aware of its nature and then either accept its sleeping status and usage, move to spark a rebirth and become anew representation of its “LIFE” line (rapid evolution will occur) or it can always return back to the source of its original “LIFE”.)
(Interpretation as it relates to the active “LIVES” which dwells within – The “LIFE” which dwells within cannot die. It can stay within the boundaries which it has created and come to be accustomed to, but will not experience death. This is just a perception of an active “Life” line becoming lost and confused occupying a dormant, sleeping, un-evolved “form”, which they were never supposed to create.
(The Opportunity for the active “LIFE” line is to become aware of its nature and then either accept its location or move on from the dormant, sleeping “live” forms and return back to the active “LIFE” lines from where they originated. “They” can go home anytime “They” want. Some do not want to go home and some have not recognized where “They” are and are still befuddled and trapped by the un-evolved “life” they put into service.
There is one more opportunity and it is for both, the dormant, sleeping “LIFE” line and the active “LIFE” lines. The sleeping “LIFE” line can awaken and accept the active “LIFE” as its own “LIFE”, which would constitute a brand new “LIVING” evolved merger/creation.
It has something to do with the “LIFE” of Christ merging with the “LIFE” of the later generation of “Man”, but “i” do not know if “man” is the body or the “LIFE”, which dwells within.
There is also the distinct possibility “CHRIST” is not involved in either or the first two opportunities and will be it’s own new “LIFE” or tree, looking to take on branches of “life”.
