What is that growing inside you?

Jesus saw some little babies being breast-fed. He said to his disciples, "These little ones that are being suckled are similar to those who enter the kingdom." They said to him, "So we enter the kingdom by being like babies?" Jesus said to them, "When you transform the two into one, and when you turn what is inside to be like the outside and the outside like the inside, and what is above like what is below, and when you turn the male and the female into one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you create eyes in the place of the eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom." Gospel of Thomas 22

This is the creation story in reverse. The male and female return to one. The body is replaced by a body, and it is like the Enigma song says...a "Return to Innocence." It is a state of oneness within the self and a oneness with all of creation. This state requires the individual to almost be a shaman going within through layers after layers of beliefs, illusions, ghosts of past experiences replaying within...when all of these shadows are seen and embraced, then the true Self may be seen and experienced.
