Then the Lord himself spoke and said: "If you can grasp
what is meant by this, you will be delivered from the fear of
Endings. So do not cease from searching. Yet, remember this;
when you find that for which you are looking, you will at
first be struck with horror and amazement. But after the
horror will come understanding; and in the end you will find
yourself to be set apart, and honoured above them all."
-- The Gospel of St. Thomas (Apocryphal)
