passion without an Image of itself

Attachment to matter gives birth to passion without an Image of itself 
because it is drawn from that which is contrary to its essence.  
The result is that confusion and disturbance resonate throughout one's whole being.  
It is for this reason that I told you to find contentment at the level of the heart, 
and if you are discouraged, take heart in the presence of the Image of your true nature.

~ from the Gospel of Mary Magdalene
