(1) The disciples said to Jesus: “Tell us how our end will be.”– Gospel of Thomas, verse 18
(2) Jesus said: “Have you already discovered the beginning that you are now asking about the end? For where the beginning is, there the end will be too.
(3) Blessed is he who will stand at the beginning. And he will know the end, and he will not taste death.”
(1) The disciples may not be comfortable with uncertainty and want to know.
(2+3) When we find ourselves as capacity for the world as it appears to us, we find that all beginnings and ends happen within and as what we are. To us, all beginnings and ends happen here and now, within and as what we are.
