Gospel of Mary pages 10 – 12

Peter said to Mary,

‘Sister we know that the Lord loved you

differently from anyone else.

Tell us if there were

words he spoke to you,

which we have not yet heard.’

And Mary answered Peter, saying,

‘I will now reveal to you that which

has not yet been made known to you.

I had a vision of our Lord,

and I said unto him:

“Lord, I see you now in a vision.”

And he said unto me:

“Mary you are blessed for

my appearance does not make you afraid.

Where the NOUS is there lies the treasure.”

I replied to him:

“Lord when someone meets you in a vision,

is it through our soul

that we are able to see you,

or is it through our spirit?”

And the Lord answered,

“Mary it is neither.

But it is the NOUS between the two

which sees the vision, and it is this

which makes us fully human.

When we become fully human,

we become one whole body of light.

The ‘One breath.

When we join that ‘one’ breath

we become whole;

we become ‘at -one’.

The breath conjoins

life-death-life

at the midpoint

which is the Heart,

called the noon of our being.

This is where the NOUS lies.

We are all aspects of life,

of ‘one’ being,

of ‘one’ whole.

All aspects of life

have to be overcome.

It is true that everything

in our physical structure

is composed and will decompose

but we can overcome this process.

All that is composed is of the elements,

and our attachment is to this structure.

Dissociate your soul from matter.

Once the two are apart the ascent can begin.

The breath sustains the soul and gives it life,

and it is this which detaches

you from matter.

It is through the NOUS that we see

for it is the eye of the vision

within the soul

and it is with the vision

of the NOUS that we

overcome the without, within.”
