You maybe remember me asking what the phrase "Dance of the Ages" was well holly crap I found it! It was in the Gosphel of Thomas and I must say
there is something seriously true going on.
Anyway in the Sefer Yetzirah it mentions 32 paths of wisdom which can be seen here:
Now in the Gosphel of Thomas it mentions the following "And her mouth is opened, and it becometh her well: thirty and two are they that sing praises
to her." I am guessing this is the same thing as 32 paths? What do you think??
Gosphel of Thomas (Dance of the happy Ages)
The damsel is the daughter of light, in whom consisteth and dwelleth the proud brightness of kings, and the sight of her is delightful, she shineth
with beauty and cheer. Her garments are like the flowers of spring, and from them a waft of fragrance is borne; and in the crown of her head the king
is established which with his immortal food (ambrosia) nourisheth them that are founded upon him; and in her head is set truth, and with her feet she
showeth forth joy. And her mouth is opened, and it becometh her well: thirty and two are they that sing praises to her. Her tongue is like the curtain
of the door, which waveth to and fro for them that enter in: her neck is set in the fashion of steps which the first maker hath wrought, and her two
hands signify and show, proclaiming the dance of the happy ages, and her fingers point out the gates of the city. Her chamber is bright with light and
breatheth forth the odour of balsam and all spices, and giveth out a sweet smell of myrrh and Indian leaf, and within are myrtles strown on the floor,
and garlands of all manner of odorous flowers, and the door-posts(?) are adorned with freedst. 7 And surrounding her her groomsmen keep her, the
number of whom is seven, whom she herself hath chosen. And her bridesmaids are seven, and they dance before her. And twelve in number are they that
serve before her and are subject unto her, which have their aim and their look toward the bridegroom, that by the sight of him they may be
enlightened; and for ever shall they be with her in that eternal joy, and shall be at that marriage whereto the princes are gathered together and
shall attend at that banquet whereof the eternal ones are accounted worthy, and shall put on royal raiment and be clad in bright robes; and in joy and
exultation shall they both be and shall glorify the Father of all, whose proud light they have received, and are enlightened by the sight of their
lord; whose immortal food they have received, that hath no failing (excrementum, Syr.), and have drunk of the wine that giveth then neither thirst nor
desire. And they have glorified and praised with the living spirit, the Father of truth and the mother of wisdom.
