Freedom is "to be free IN all conditions..."
It is NOT "to be free FROM any of them!"

The Realm of Divine Reality

Formerly called "The Kingdom of Heaven"

From the Gospel of Thomas
Saying 
22:24-27

...the disciples asked Jesus:
If we then become children, shall we enter the kingdom?
Jesus said to them:
When you make the two one, and when you make the inside as the outside, and the outside as the inside, and the upper as the lower, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male is not male and the female not female, and when you make eyes in place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then shall you enter [the kingdom].

~ BLAT Translation

Interpretive rendering:
When you recognize that opposites complement each other in unity, 
when you see how diversity reaches for and comes from union, 
when you experience that your inner and outer are integrated into one identity, 
when the higher and the lower are realized in one and the same self, 
when you integrate your feminine and masculine into one wholeness, 
when you have vision in addition to looking, 
when you have comprehension in addition to holding, 
when you know where you are going, having no problem being where you are, 
when you know your becoming, having no problem being who you are, 
when you live in reality rather than holding on to any concepts about it, 
you then recognize that you are in the realm of divine reality.

Two more scholarly translations of Saying 22:

LAYTON
(22) Jesus saw some little ones nursing. He said to his disciples, “These little ones who are nursing resemble is those who enter the kingdom.” They said to him, “So shall we enter the kingdom by being little ones?” Jesus said to them, “When you (plur.) make the two one and make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside and the above like the below, and that you might make the male and the female be one and the same, so that the male might not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye and a hand in place of a hand and a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image – then you will enter [the kingdom].”


DORESSE
27 [22]. Jesus saw some children who were taking the breast: he said to his disciples: “These little ones who suck are like those who enter the Kingdom.” They said to him: “If we are little, shall we enter the Kingdom?” Jesus says to them: “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the upper like the lower! And if you make the male and female one, so that the male is no longer male and the female no longer female, and when you put eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in the place of a hand, and a foot in the place of a foot, and an image in the place of an image, then you will enter [the Kingdom!"]
