In the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas (found over 60 years ago in Nag Hammad, Egypt) there is a logion…logion 75:
Many are standing by the door,
But only those who are alone and simple (*monakos)
Can enter the bridal chamber
Here The Christ speaks to how there might be many bystanders…that speak/preach of love and dream of love…but few only really go through the door and begin to love truly and completely.
In essence…protect yourself…many speak of Truth and the way to attain True Peace & Love…The Christ exhibited Absolute Truth and was the perfect example.
