"When that which is from above comes into manifestation,
it is commonly thought to be 'from below.'
When something is hidden or unmanifest
it is often said to be 'from above.'
It is important, therefore, that the interior and the exterior exist together beyond all externals,
and for this reason the Master called the schism between them an 'outer darkness' because transcendence cannot exist there.
He also says 'My father dwells in secret, so go into the hidden chamber
and shut the door and commune there with the one who is in this hidden place within you."
The Father is there in your innermost being, and there is no other place transcendent to this, which is the Fullness beyond all 'place.'"
--Gospel of Philip, analogue 45 (tr. Lynn Bauman)


Secret dwelling, I AM is there.
Inmost being, I AM is there.
No place above, no place below,
no place within, no place without,
the Fullness beyond all place.
