When he finds, he will become troubled

(2) Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.”
Gospel of Thomas

That’s my experience with inquiry. I seek until I find. I may become troubled because it doesn’t fit into what’s familiar to me. I am astonished. And through finding truth and more clarity, there is a “ruling over the all” – at least in the sense of freedom from the confines of the earlier belief.
