"For in him [Christ] dwelleth all the pleroma of the deity bodily." —Col 2:9

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Take everything from each moment, because each moment is a child of Gnosis, each moment is absolute, alive and significant. Momentariness is a special characteristic of the Gnostics. We love the philosophy of momentariness."
