"These are the hidden words that the living Jesus spoke, and that Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down. And he said, 'Whoever finds the meaning of these words will not taste death.' " Thus begins The Gospel According to Thomas, part of a collection of writings found in 1945 near Nag Hammadi, Egypt. This Gospel, rather than recounting the story of the life of Jesus, lists over one hundred of his sayings. Some of these are familiar to readers of the New Testament; others are not found in the Bible. The author was divinely led to read this gospel and in so doing received the revelation of the meaning behind the "hidden words." She feels that this gospel is very sacred because it contains the actual words that Jesus spoke, not having been altered since its discovery in 1945, and she always carried a copy of it with her. With "boundless Light and Love," Marie Watts offers us these spiritual insights and invites us to return to these sayings of Jesus again and again, that we might discover for ourselves the joy of revelation which they contain.

During early childhood, Marie S. Watts began questioning: “Why am I? What am I? Where is God? What is God?” After experiencing her first illumination at seven years of age, her hunger for the answers to these questions became intensified. Although she became a concert pianist, her search for the answers continued, leading her to study all religions, including those of the East. Finally, ill and unsatisfied, she gave up her profession of music, discarded all books of ancient and modern religions, kept only the Bible, and went into virtual seclusion from the world for some eight years. It was out of the revelations and illuminations she experienced during those years, revelations that were sometimes the very opposite of what she had hitherto believed, that her own healing was realized and that the book, The Ultimate, came. During all the previous years, she had been active in helping others. After The Ultimate was published, she devoted herself exclusively to the continuance of this healing work and to lecturing and teaching. Revelations continued to come to her from within her own consciousness, and these she set forth in her book, You Are the Splendor, and many others.
