Sophia2 Picture

She is Sophia, dawning of the morning Star, the Holy Ghost. She... Sophia the Spirit of Wisdom, Love and Truth. Every dawn dispels the shadows of the night; they are wise in their time who learn to love the light they cannot yet see in its fullness, whose harbinger they can recognize in the bright messenger of the dawn. In a few brief hours on the clock of human evolution, the Sun of Truth will arise for all who are courageous enough to turn towards the East, and mankind will rediscover itself.

Philosophy as philo-sophia, or, literally, the love of Wisdom. The Sophia is co-existent with the Trinity, operating as the feminine aspect of God in concert with the masculine principles of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Sophia, whose name means “wisdom”, had been the Goddess of the Pagan philosophers for centuries. Sophia’s name comes from the Greek word for “wisdom,” the personification of the Female Divine. Indeed, the word “philosopher”, first used by Pythagoras, means “lover of Sophia” Philo, a Jewish Gnostic, calls Sophia “the Way” and the royal road which leads to God

The ancients represented this fundamental duality mythologically as God and
Goddess. When the Mystery looks at itself, God looks at Goddess. The Christian Goddss Sophia “the introspectin of God”. According to The Sophia of Solomon, Sophia ia a “reflection” of God, an “image of God”, a “mirror of God’s active power”. She is God’s psyche. She is the appearance of that essence.

From Christian myth we know that the Holy Spirit is a pseudonym of the Goddess Sophia. Heracleon and Ptolemy tell us that the dove symbolizes “Sophia, the Mother above”. The dove was a widespread symbol of the goddess in the ancient world and was adopted by the Christians as symbol of the Holy Spirit. Christians of the Ophite school teach that at his baptism “Christ and Sophia, the one enfolding the other, descended upon Jesus and he became Jesus Christ”.
