TWO INTO ONE
So we have to choose between two paths:
One leads to our Self-Knowledge, to the Truth and to Life, and the other leads to the knowledge of the infinite subdivisions of this world, and to death.
[The Apocalypse of Adam TO HIS SON SETH (From the Nag Hammadi manuscripts)]:
“After those days (of the fall), the eternal knowledge of the God of Truth withdrew from me and your mothrt Eve. Since that time, we learned about dead (dying) things, like men.”
It was that time, when Celestial Man tasted the forbidden fruit of the dyadic (twofold) KNOWLEDGE (of good and evil) abandoning the Worlds of Truth.
Truth is the remembrance of the Living.
Knowledge is the research of the dead.
That is why an anchorite who delves into his self-awareness has more chances of finding the Truth, than a scholar who is drowned in his books researching and investigating this world.
In different words we find the same in the Gospel of Thomas from the texts of Nag Hammadi:
GOSPEL OF THOMAS:
“When you make the two into One, When you make the inner (Divine Spark) like the outer (I Am Presence/Higher Self) and the high like the low; when you make male(=Divine Spark) and female(=I Am Presence/Higher Self) into a single One, so that the male is not male and the female is not female; when you have eyes in your eyes, a hand in your hand, a foot in your foot, and an icon in your icon, then you will enter into the Kingdom!”
