The one who seeks should not cease seeking until he finds. And when he finds he will be dismayed. And when he is dismayed, he will be astonished. And he will be king over the All. If those who lead you say to you: ‘Look, 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 fishes will precede you. Instead of these, the kingdom is inside of you, and outside of you.
Gospel of Thomas
