Logia 51 of the Gospel of Thomas:

[Jesus'] disciples said to him:

On what day will the rest of the dead come into being?

And on what day will the new world come?

He said to them: That which ye await has come, but ye know it not




Rather than trying to combine with others to form a united group, what is critical is that we become self-coherent in ourselves. From here, we can then contribute much more to society, because we will be able to fully honor agreements, overcome any obstacles to goals, and have perfect health.

That sounds idealistic, but I don't think it is unrealistic: it is easier now that we have so much wisdom, and we don't have to become the ideal overnight, or regret it when we don't live up to the ideal, whether in minor or major ways.

However, as long as our minds are dominated by the "noise" of society pulling us this way and that way, then we won't be able to grown internally, and eventually, we will fail to be who we want to be.

That it is why the best way to be of service to others, is to first be coherent in ourselves. Others will try to get us to serve them with all of our minds, but we should never do so, because within us is a higher calling.
