Yeshua says,
"I am the light shining upon all things.
I am the sum of everything,
for everything has come forth from me,
and towards me everything unfolds.
Split a piece of wood, and there I am.
Pick up a stone, and you will find me there."
--Gospel of Thomas, logion 77 (tr. Lynn Bauman)

(See also John 1:3-4, John 8:12, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Colossians 1:16.)


Split the wood or turn the stone,
there I AM, find me there.
I am the light, I am the light,
shining within all things.
Everything comes forth from me,
into me, all returns.
I am the light, I am the light,
shining beyond all things.
