G2 2013 & T.S.B.of S.Wood Of The Cross: Ideals & One Becoming Two

Aeon Byte Gnostics


(11) Yeshua says:
(1) "This heaven will pass away, and the (heaven) above it will pass away.
(2) And the dead are not alive, and the living will not died.
(3) In the days when you consumed what was dead,
you made it alive. When you are in the light, what will you do?
(4) On the day when you were one, you became two.
But when you become two, what will you do?

- Gospel of Thomas Judas

Whether one wants to admit it or not, we live in a dualistic world. I’m not talking about good versus evil, light versus darkness, hot versus cold or other such dichotomies. What I am talking about is the duality of ourselves. This duality is what we perceive to be true versus what is actually true. In essence it is belief and truth. Beliefs can be true sometimes. Other times, beliefs can be completely false.

Most of what we think we know is beliefs. Sometimes, our beliefs are justified by repeatedly experiencing something a particular way. Other times, our beliefs are assumptions that we take for granted because of the authority we give to those who promote such assumptions. The promoters of these assumptions can be external or internal. Keeping these thoughts in mind is essential to understanding this passage.

When it says, “This heaven and the one above it will pass away,” it is speaking about ideals. Not just any ideals, but specifically beliefs that we hold to be absolute in terms of truth. Ideals are a reflection of what one understands to be true. As truth grows, the ideal will change or die. Truth is unchanging but it is continuously growing and the five pound sack we have for minds cannot contain the totality of the grain fields of truth. Our understanding of what defines good grain, also changes over time. What is considered true today will change fifty years from now, as information becomes more available. This heaven will pass away and so will the one above it.

Beliefs are dead. They have no life unless they are given it. Beliefs only have as much life as the truth that empowers it. I could believe that on December, Friday the 13th of 2013 that a meteor shower made of candy will crash down making machines come to life and turning any person pelted by it into a zombie. I would be the one empowering this belief so this belief will affect me but it has no truth to it. I would have to serve this belief to keep it empowered and it would rule over me. Truth, genuine truth, does not die. It does not require any “maintenance” because it is what it is. Our understanding may change as information changes but it doesn’t die. Like it or not, evolution is a fact, like germs and gravity. No matter how much one does not want to believe that changes occur in offspring that can lead to new species will not change this from happening. Truth goes on regardless of what we believe.

The first question offered is “when you are in the light, what will you do?” When one is confronted with truth and realization what will you do? When you find yourself in the Fullness of God, what will you do? There are a number of answers one can give but one can never know what one will do unless one knows themselves and in confronted with such a situation. “When you become two what will you do?” When you become aware that what you believe is not the same as what is true, that they are not “one”, what will you do? When a dearly held belief or perception held about anyone or anything is challenged by a truth that counters it, what will you do? Beliefs are not alive and truth does not die. Let the dead bury the dead and be resurrected into a new life.
