Gospel of Thomas, verse 15

Jesus says: “When you see one who was not born of woman, fall on your face (and) worship him. That one is your Father.”

– Gospel of Thomas, verse 15

If you see someone who knows they were not born of a woman, that’s the one to learn from.

If you recognize someone as not born of a woman, you recognize their true nature – because you recognize your own.

When we find our true nature, we recognize we were not born and our parents are not our parents. Of course, in a conventional sense all of that is still true – we were born and have parents. But in a more immediate and real sense, in our own experience, what we are is capacity for all of this. All of this – the ideas about birth and parents and so on – happen within and as what we are.
