Divine Sophia (Wisdom)
It has always seemed strange to me that the idea of a female creator is something that most modern thinkers would reject. I’ve written about Sophia before, especially with reference to Gnostic myths, so the thinking on my part goes a long way back. It is definitely a Greek spin on Creation myths, of which there are many the world over. Modern spiritual thinkers see her as Gaia, Mother Earth.
When Christianity became the political norm in Roman times, Mary, the “Mother of God”, became their version of this individual. But that supposes so much, I’m not sure I can do it justice here.
What we need to do is recognize that some Egyptian and Greek elements have combined and formed a separate image of this ‘person’ of the Holy Trinity. In other words, she’s the Holy Spirit.
(Where do you think we get our Wisdom from? Obviously, it is from within our hearts.)
And even medieval artists seemed to try to illustrate this point, but making it more complicated for us.
Always and forever, the explanations seem to be steeped in astrological and alchemical symbolism.
But, we don’t have to follow their lead: we only need to listen to the still small voice coming from our conscience. She wants us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be: she loves all her children.
