Being Childlike is being Godlike

“Once one has access to the mother, through it he can know the child. Once one knows the child, if he again holds onto the mother as long as he lives, no danger shall befall him.” Tao-te Ching

“Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to His disciples, ‘These infants being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom.’”
-Gospel of Thomas

“Whosoever holds fast to life’s completeness is like a new born infant.”
-Tao-te Ching, trans. Richard Wilheim

“Rely exclusively on your vital force, and become perfectly soft: can you play the infant?”
-Tao-te Ching

"Yet I have said, whichever one of you come to be a child will be acquainted with the kingdom and will become superior to John."
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Ye are son of the Great Light. Remember and ye shall be free,”
-Emerald Tablets of Thoth

“If they say to you, ‘Where do you come from?’ say to them, ‘We come from the light, the place where the light came into being by itself, established itself, and appeared in their image.’ If they say to you, ‘Who are you?’ say, ‘We are its children.’”
-Jesus, Gospel of Thomas

“Raise up the divine child within you to the first born divine.” –Plotinus, last words

“…when in childlike innocence he enters into the divine domain, he finds that all of the universe is his –for now he belongs to all of the universe. This sweet surrender to the mighty currents of cosmic law and purity shows him the need to transfer from higher octaves of light into the lower ramifications of self the power and the glory, the victory and the overcoming, the transmittal and the transmutation…. the consciousness of God that sustains the universe is also within man. Now, if the consciousness of God that sustains the universe is within man, is it unreasonable to suppose that man can also be within the consciousness that sustains the universe? In the macrocosmic-microcosmic interchange, in the great flow of life, of delight, of boundless joy, man senses the unity of all that lives, and he recognizes that his role as a receiver of benefits from the universe entails the necessary conveyance of benefits from his own creative consciousness back into the universe.”
-Saint Germain on Alchemy, Elizabeth Prophet

“When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them then you will see the Son of the Living One, and you will not be afraid.” -Jesus, Gospel of Thomas
