    You're quoting The Gospel of Thomas.
    Corrected Luke 17:21
    Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

    Sorry, this is one of those verses that seems to be vauge in Greek.
    KJV within you
    NIV within you
    NLT among you
    NASB in your midst
    RSV in the midst of you
    NRSV among you

    Gospel of Thomas 113 His disciples said to him, "When will the Kjngdom come?" Jesus said "It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'Here it is' or 'There it is'. Rather, the Kingdom of the Father is spread out upon the Earth, and men do not see it."

    Know the world in yourself. Never look for yourself in the world, for this would be to project your illusion
