“It is important to note, that the teachings of the apparitions, the canonical Gospels, and the Gospel of Mary Magdalene all agree on this point. As long as our peace is dependent on any kind of external reality, it is not Peace; as long as our love for others and for the world is dependent on attitudes and feelings toward us, it is not Love.
To the extent that our life depends on the material circumstances and conditions that constitute us, it is not yet Life. It is still within the domain of the outer person, who is destined to fall in ruins. It is still within a universe that is subject to the laws of entropy and daily decay.
Only within our true being do we find Reality, a Life, a Knowledge, a Love, and a Peace that are not dependent. These are the Son of Man, who is also the Son of God.
This Reality is both who we are, and what we must become.”
The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, Jean-Yves Leloup, p. 71-72.
