Yea,good quote and very true.From what I've learned it's meaning,while once criptic to me is now simple reality.
"What is IN you=Your Spirit,piece of Him,"The Light in the world" ,as a child..Now as you (from dust here,the outer,or shell,are of your mother,a small her,growing into One like her.),that piece within you,here to mature,as time matures your shell into a mature body..The inner you..so to grow,to be like it's Daddy.Some call it "the inner child",which often gets damaged,But IS the Light,or Son Of Man/Women,Whichever name one prefers.As evidenced by your emotions,which no other creature here shares..Do creatures get bored?..No.See?
So,do you care for your "Child within",or call self names,beat self down,think self "not good enough,no "value"..Snuff out th e light within,"The Child of Man"..Hate self or Love self?See.
Treat it well,let it grow within,nuture it,love it..Then if one does,it Blends with it,into One.The dust,you.The vessel absorbs into the "piece within"..If it CHOOSES to..Blend with the piece and you go Home when He calls His OWN Home."...Do not,Dust back to Dust,the piece still goes Home to its Daddy,more mature than when it left.
"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you"....Exactly,think,"Hitch a ride on a star."..If blended,by ones own FREE WILL..IF One?You always go wherever it goes,as it now gets to go whever you go.
What does it "save" you from?..Death.The piece never dies,its of Him,its Father,eternal.We?Dust with an opportunity to become eternal,or.... die as we were born.Here,from earth,dust.Facing death as we were also born.
"If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
Yes,kill the light in you.Do evil things,have hate in your mind.Shut down your emotions.Hate SELF,and others.Deny help to those with nothing.All mean one is doing the same thing.Denying what the piece within tells ALL.Compassion,forgiveness,Help your brethren in the hell of growing.Guide him,be a light,use your light to show them the way out of the dark they have gotten into with their hate,their confusion that makes them hate the Light within them.To not trust it nor "believe in its words".
In short he means..Blend with the gift given you,LISTEN to its advice,it knows the Fathers will.That it is within your own mind,the "Holy of Holies".In the very center of the brain,its Throne.Do so and it will "Save" you from true death.It never "dies".
Don't "Bring it Forth"?..You will die the death."Destroyed"...
And by their fruits you will tell them apart.When one denies their light,or snuffs it out of their own free will.You will know them,they will lack compassion,hate others,hate self,only live to be a pain in others asses.And enjoy it.Chaos a drug,so they may "feel" something again,to feel anything once again because they have felt nothing since they killed their light.
I can't prove it,but I'm fairly certain that is what Thomas means.He's the 4th place I've heard the same advice.He just leaves alot of detail out.But when your "piece" read it,it like it,because it KNOWS its true.It knows He means Her.She KNOW she the thing "within" that he speaks about.
Here's another way to say what Thomas was saying:
"1782-1Turn within, rather than holding to something above self. For know, the promise is that He shall meet thee within thine own temple. The technique, then, was in error. It is not above self, but within. For as ye raise the consciousness to that within self, He meeteth thee in thine own tabernacle, in the holy of holies; in the third eye, - NOT above same! (1782-1) Female 64 1/5/1939 "
Thomas just warned about what happens if you don't,destruction of self.At one's own hand,not wrath.
Here's same same,different source.John gave the same warning.And advice.:
"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.”...
We all have the "Son/Daughter" within.The "inner child" many like to call it.The seat of your emotions resides within this "God jr."
As they said,"The Son of God has become the Son of Mankind"..We all have our very own little him/her to care for,listen to,blend with.Or prove we cannot coexist with,which means we cannot coexist with its Daddy,they the same.Our choice,not His,not hers/his depending on your sex..lol.
