The Thunder, Perfect Mind

I was sent forth from strength,

& I have come to those who reflect upon me,

& I have been found among those who seek after me,

Look upon me, you who reflect upon me,

& you hearers, hear me.

You who are waiting for me take me to yourselves.

& do not banish me from your sight.

& do not make your voice hate me, nor your hearing.

Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or any time.

Be on your guard. Do not be ignorant of me.

For I am the first & the last,

I am the honoured one & the scorned one,

I am the whore & the Holy one.

I am the wife & the virgin.

I am the mother &  & the daughter.

I am the members of my mother.

I am the barren one

& many are her sons.

I have not taken a husband.

I am mid-wife & she who does not bear.

I am the solace of my labour pains.

I am the bride & the bridegroom,

& it is my husband who begot me.

I am the mother of my father.

& the sister of my husband.

& he is my offspring.

I am the silence that is incomprehensible

& the idea whose remembrance is frequent.

I am the voice whose sound is manifold

& the word whose appearance is multiple.

I am the utterance of my name.
