Casa Battlo, Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona: The Seven Veils.

These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymus Judas Thomas wrote down upon his command.

And he said: “Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings, his blood will not experience death at the Ending of Days.”

Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds that which he seeks.  When he finds, that which he seeks may be not that he expecteth to find, therefore he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled he may well wonder, and then will be astonished, and he will rule over all the kingdom of his own mind.

“And he that cometh after me shall seek you out, and shall also be astonished at that which he finds: and that which he finds not shall cause him to despair; and his number shall be ten.”

Then Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky’, then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea’, then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you and it is outside of you.

“When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realise that it is you who are the sons of the living force of all that is. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty, and it is you who are that poverty.

“He shall offer unto the blood of all men who know themselves, eternal life. And it shall not be as ether, nor shall it be believable: it shall be real, and may well escape men because of this.”
