Yeshua says,
"I stood to my feet in the midst of the cosmos,
appearing outwardly in flesh.
I discovered that all were drunk and none were thirsty,
and my soul ached for the children of humanity.
For their hearts are blind and they cannot see from within.
They have come into the cosmos empty, and they are leaving it empty.
At the moment you are inebriated, but free from the effects of wine,
you too may turn and stand."
--Gospel of Thomas, logion 28 (tr. Lynn Bauman)


Turn and stand, turn and stand,
Turn and stand, turn and stand.
