Instruction of Adam by an Uthra

From: http://www.gnosis.org/library/inst.htm

Do not slumber and sleep,
and forget not what your lord commanded you.
Be no son of the House, the world,
and be not named as a guilty person in the Tibil.
Love not fragrant wreaths,
and have no liking for a seductive woman.
Love not pleasant odors,
and do not neglect the night prayer.
Love not treacherous spirits
and seductive courtesans.
Love not lust,
and lying phantoms.
Drink not and do not become intoxicated,
and do not forget your lord in your thoughts.
In your coming in and your going out
be careful not to forget your lord.
In your coming and going
be careful not to forget your lord.
In your sitting and your standing
be careful not to forget your lord.
In your resting and your lying down
be careful not to forget your lord.
Do not say ; I am a firstborn son,
in everything that I do I am proof against folly.
Adam, look upon the world
which is a completely unreal thing.
It is a unreal thing,
in which you can put no trust.
