The Primordial State

If you know me, you know my Father too.

Have I been with you all this time and you still do not know me?1

The problem, for the disciples, seems to be with Jesus’ experience of self.

To have seen me is to have seen the Father.1

Jesus does not identify with what they are looking at, Jesus of Nazareth.

I am in the Father and the Father is in me.1

“it is made apparent how being that truly understands itself grasps at the same time that in being itself it does not belong to itself; that it only comes to itself by moving away from itself and finding its way back as relatedness to its true primordial state.”2

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.1
