Logion 8: “Humankind is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of little fish.”


Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011): Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage and Paraclete by duty.
“The Spirit of God thus generates a force field of love in which people strive so that all things might "work for good" for their "neighbors.” In an international situation in which whole countries are politically and judicially neglected, in which the ideology of scarceness triumphs and in which the struggle to prevail economically is the order of the day, this "Comforter" may appear to be an illusion. Yet in truth the Spirit acts in such an international situation as the revealer of "judgment" on the powers that rule the world. From the perspective of structural patterns of life plunged into misery, the Spirit bears witness that this international situation has no staying power, no validity, that contrary to all self-righteousness of both the "pious" and the "impious," it is marked by unbelief, distance from Christ, and nothingness, and is dependent on the delivering power of the Spirit.” (Welker 1994, 227)

“A wise person will take in whatever is the wisdom. He won't accept anything nonsensical. You go on reading the books, one after another one, after another one. So many books you read and where will you end up with that? You find you are reading books which are no good for you, useless but if you are fond of reading, you go on reading.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji


“At this time, I would like to say very humbly, that one should not discard this knowledge as useless because it is coming from a developing country like India. The Western culture has now advanced greatly as far as outward scientific life is concerned. Western civilisation is like a very big tree which has outgrown its own size. But one has to find the roots. If the roots are in India, or any other country, why do we not accept that a tree cannot exist without roots and roots have no meaning unless they nourish the trees.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataj


“But now give up all nonsensical ideas about your seeking and useless ramblings. Seeking means not knowing about anything but becoming something.

For that, Christ crucified Himself. He resurrected Himself so that you all could be resurrected, so you have to, today, thank Him for giving you the lead of resurrection and in this lifetime only, you are going to be resurrected and you are going to see, with your own eyes, your resurrection as the disciples saw the resurrection of Christ. This is being all promised and this must happen to all of you.

So we should rejoice and be happy that the time has come for the resurrection and such a great event we are facing. We are such a people-give up our small visions and our petty hankerings, our small little lives in which we live like frogs. Expand yourself and think that today you are facing the drama of mass resurrection, not only that, but you are maneuvering it. So rejoice and be happy that what Christ did 2,000 years back, today we are going to do it. That's why Easter is a special day for all of us. It really is a very special day because in our lives the death has died and we are resurrected.”

A Commentary on the Gospel of Thomas: From Interpretations to the Interpreted
8 33,28b-34, 3a

And he says: (1) ‘The person is like a sensible fisherman,
who cast his net into the sea
and drew it from the sea filled with little fish.
(2) Among them the sensible fisherman
found a large, fine fish.
(3) He threw all the little fish back into the sea, (and) he chose the large fish effortlessly.
(4) Whoever has ears to hear should hear.’


‘The parable has its analogy in Matt 13:47-50: Again the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind; when it was full they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good into the baskets but threw out the bad. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous and throw them into the furnace of fire, where they will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

In the Gospel of Thomas we find several divergences from this version: The sensible (wise) fisherman seems to act illogically. He throws his catch back to the sea and keeps only one large fish. It is because the large fish, like the large branch in logion 20:4, the largest sheep in logion 107:2, and the pearl in logion 76:1, represents the revealed mystery of the divine core of humanity-the human soul. The wise fisherman is an archetypal figure, like the vigilant master of the house (log. 21:5) or the prudent merchant from logion 76:2. Everyday experience, re-formed and transformed, helps the reader find orientation in human life.

The concluding exhortation, ‘Whoever has ears to hear should hear,’ leads the reader to deeper self-understanding in the face of the proclamation of God's kingdom. It does not hint at any coded meaning hidden under the surface of the text, as has often been thought.

The well-known parable is presented in a form stressing the value of the human soul. This is most probably a secondary development in comparison with the Matthean version, which stresses the last judgment...

A similar transformation from eschatology to a new self-understanding is evident in the concluding exhortation, which originally belonged to an apocalyptic tradition (Mark 4:9; Rev 2:7; cf. log. 21:5-11).’

A Commentary on the Gospel of Thomas
Petr Pokorny, T&T Clark; Reprint edition (December 22, 2011) p. 47-8
“Following his life as a failed ascetic and false teacher, Marici experiences a large number of intervening births, very often as a brahmin who becomes once again a trida??in ascetic. Eventually he is born in a royal family and becomes an ascetic. His ascetic practices result in him having a rather emaciated appearance, for which he is mocked by his cousin. Angered by this, Marici vows to have the strength to kill his cousin in a future life, and indeed he does this two births later, when he is born as the first Vasudeva, or half-cakravartin, named Triprsta. His cousin has meanwhile been reborn as a lion, which Trip???a proceeds to kill with his bare hands. He then enacts the standard narrative for each of the vasudevas: he battles with and kills his multi-life adversary - the prativasudeva - while his half-brother the baladeva remains detached and eventually attains mok?a. As is inevitable for all vasudevas, his violent actions result in rebirth in a hell realm. After this Mahavira-to-be experiences a large number of animal and hell rebirths, before eventually attaining human birth once more and acquiring some good karma. Next he becomes a cakravartin, then a god, and once more a king-turned-ascetic; in this birth he finally binds tirthankana-karma. Thus we see from Mahavira’s story that a desire to attain jinahood is not a positive motivating force. Instead Mariuci’s prediction to jinahood leads him to undue pride which results in him binding a large amount of negative karma.” (Appleton 2014, 110)





Richard Valantasis, The Gospel of Jesus
8. And he said: “The man is like a thoughtful fisherman who threw his net into the sea and pulled it out full of little fish. Among all the little fish, that thoughtful fisherman found one fine large fish that would be beneficial to him and, throwing all the little fish back into the sea, he easily chose to keep the large one. Whoever has ears to hear let him hear.”

Saying 8 focuses on the act of finding. The discovery of the great fish is accidental; it is part of an ordinary catch drawn from the sea in the ordinary way, but the wisdom of the fisherman is to recognize and to choose the finest part. The great fish is, therefore, a symbol of something already out there in the world whose discovery can occur in the ordinary course of events. Realizing the value of what has been found is the real accomplishment.

Stevan Davies & Andrew Harvey, Gospel of Thomas Annotated and Explained Reviews, Skylights Path (2006) pp. 7-8




Richard Valantasis, The Gospel of Jesus
Saying 8

And he said, "“ human one is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of little fish. Among them the wise fisherman discovered a fine large fish. He threw all the little fish back into the sea, and easily chose the larger fish. Anyone here with two good ears had better listen!"

The parables present an interesting interpretative problem. At the literary level, this one consists of a narrative within a simile that is explained by a narrative: the narrator's voice ("And he said") introduces a simile ("The human one is like") that inaugurates another narrative ("A wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea"). The perspectives on the meaning of parables reflect the complexity of literary angles within them: they will bear more meaning than appears at first, and, they provide readers (and seekers) a rich field with which to play for meaning (see Crossan 1973: 4-36). The word "play" should be emphasized: in every one of these sayings, the meanings and the theological or spiritual principles which inform meaning have been carefully and directly stated. The introduction of parables shifts from that discursive modality to one that requires greater interaction and less guidance from the narrative. The parables provide time and space for play.

The simile itself attempts to define, or to compare, the "human one" or "The man" to a fisherman. The ambiguity of the term "The human one" contrasts with the specificity of the description of the fisherman. The simile makes a definitive statement about the human condition: "The human one" resembles a "Wise fisherman.” The human condition signified as the "human one" has the grammatical article ("The") that indicates that this humanity is not just any human, but the ones who live in a special category of human beings, perhaps those capable of interpreting these sayings. That specific community reference to the human being as similar to a wise fisherman places the weight of the comparison on the description. Attentive readers, however, recognize that although the emphasis falls on the description, the import remains with the three suppressed elements (the sayings narrator; Jesus' narrative; and the subject of that narrative, "The human one"). These voices seem to join with the voice at the end to say, "Anyone here with two good ears had better listen!" The suppressed elements find their voice in the injunction to pay attention: the readers and seekers (if they are as wise as the fisherman) will heed the understanding they might gain about their humanity, and especially about their humanity refracted through Jesus' sayings and preserved in Thomas' collection. That such an injunction to listen receives attention underscores that only select readers or seekers will be able to understand what transpires.

The narrative that follows has simple elements: a fisherman caught a net full of fish, but when he found a large fish he threw back all the other small fish. The wisdom of a fisherman throwing away the catch and keeping only one large fish inverts normal expectations. This is a wisdom of a different sort. This wisdom operates with a different set of values and a different orientation toward professional accomplishments. The goal of this wise fisherman is not to eat the fish or to sell them, but simply to reject all the smaller fish when he has found the largest one. The value of the one big fish makes all other systems of valuing irrelevant. Such a narrative defines a wisdom alternative to the dominant norm.

The readers/seekers may be located at any number of different points: they may be the fisherman who has gone fishing for their true self, and when they found it all the other petty identities were thrown aside; they may be the fine big fish that is found by the great fisherman of human souls and cherished beyond all the other fish who seem smaller in comparison;

The subtle narrative voices and parabolic subjects keep directing attention back to the interpretative community, the readers and the seekers who desire to understand their own human condition and to discover true wisdom. The truths expressed here, the playful exploring of meaning take on their ultimate significance among these final voices that make the playful interaction with the parable possible. Those who are capable of understanding these sublimated voices ultimately will find themselves and the truth.”

THE APOCALYPSE OF THE SPIRIT-PARACLETE
The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

“The gift of peace, therefore, is intimately associated with the gift of the Spirit-Paraclete.”

“Because of the presence of the Paraclete in the life of the believer, the blessings of the end-times—the eschaton—are already present.”
Robert Kysar, John

“They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation.”
R. Picirilli, The Randall House Bible Commentary

“The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... is something to be sought here and now (Mt. 6:33) and to be received as children receive a gift (Mk. 10:15 = Lk. 18:16-17).”
G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament


“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011): Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage and Paraclete by duty.
The Paraclete and the disciples (vv. 25-26): The theme of departure (cf. vv. 1-6; vv. 18-24) returns. There are two "times" in the experience of the disciples: the now as Jesus speaks to them (v. 25) and the future time when the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, sent by the Father in the name of Jesus, will be with them (v. 26). The Paraclete will replace Jesus' physical presence, teaching them all things and recalling for them everything he has said (v. 26). As Jesus is the Sent One of the Father (cf. 4:34; 5:23; 24, 30, 37; 6:38-40; 7:16; 8:16, 18, 26; 12:44-49), so is the Paraclete sent by the Father. The mission and purpose of the former Paraclete, Jesus (cf. 14:13-14), who speaks and teaches "his own" will continue into the mission and purpose of the "other Paraclete" (cf. v. 16) who teaches and brings back the memory of all that Jesus has said. The time of Jesus is intimately linked with the time after Jesus, and the accepted meaning of a departure has been undermined. The inability of the disciples to understand the words and deeds of Jesus will be overcome as they "remember" what he had said (cf. 2:22) and what had been written of him and done to him (cf. 12:16). The "remembering" will be the fruit of the presence of the Paraclete with the disciples in the in-between-time. In v. 16 Jesus focused on the inability of the world to know the Paraclete, but in v. 26 the gift of the Paraclete to "his own" is developed. As Jesus was with the disciples (v. 25), so will the Paraclete be with the disciples in the midst of hostility and rejection (v. 16). As the story has insisted that Jesus' teaching has revealed God to his disciples, so will the Paraclete recall and continue Jesus' revelation of God to the disciples (v. 26).” (Harrington 1998, 412)

“What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive?” (Qur'n, 47:18) “As the above verse indicates, God has revealed some of Doomsday's signs in the Qur'n. In Surat az-Zukhruf 43:61, God informs us that 'He [Jesus] is a Sign of the Hour. Have no doubt about it...'

“Jesus then goes on the offensive against the scribes and Pharisees, pronouncing seven woes against them (Matt. 23:1-36). The final woe identifiers them with all those in Israel's history who have murdered and opposed the prophets. From Abel to Zechariah, all the blood of the righteous will come on them as they typologically fulfill this pattern in the murder of Jesus (23:29-36). They are the wicked tenants who think to kill the son and take his inheritance (21:38). They are seed of the serpent, a brood of vipers (23:33). Their house (the temple?) is desolate, and they will not see Jesus again until they bless him as he comes in the name of the Lord (23:37-39). Somehow, through the judgments Jesus announces against them, salvation will apparently come even for the people of Israel. As Olmstead puts it, Matthew "dares to hope for the day when many of Israel's sons and daughters will embrace Israel's Messiah (23:39), and in that hope engages in a continued mission in her.”” Hamilton 2010, 377


“It is the Mother who can awaken the Kundalini, and that the Kundalini is your own Mother. She is the Holy Ghost within you, the Adi Shakti, and She Herself achieves your transformation. By any talk, by any rationality, by anything, it cannot be done.”

“She is your pure Mother. She is the Mother who is individually with you. Forget your concepts, and forget your identifications. Please try to understand She is your Mother, waiting for ages to give you your real birth. She is the Holy Ghost within you. She has to give you your realization, and She's just waiting and waiting to do it.”

“The Kundalini is your own mother; your individual mother. And She has tape-recorded all your past and your aspirations. Everything! And She rises because She wants to give you your second birth. But She is your individual mother. You don't share Her with anybody else. Yours is a different, somebody else's is different because the tape-recording is different. We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Press Conference July 08 1999—London, UK

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
