thus speaks Sophia

~

when the world was born

I came into being

before the centuries were made

I issued from the hand of God

~

~

God instilled me

into the initial multiple as

a force

of condensation & concentration

in me is seen that side of beings by which they are

joined as one

in me the fragrance that makes them hasten together

& leads them

freely and passionately

along their road to

unity

~

~

through me

all things have their movement

& are made to work as one

I am the beauty running through the world

to make it associate in ordered groups

the ideal held up before the world

to make it ascend

I am Wisdom

I am Sophia

I was the bond that held together the foundations

of the universe

~

~

I extend my being

into

the soul of the world

~

~

I am

the magnetic force of

the

universal presence

& the

ceaseless ripple of

its smile

~

~

I open

the door to

the whole heart

of creation

I am

the Gateway of the Earth

the Initiation

~

~

in me

the soul is at work

to sublimate the body

grace to divinize the soul

those who wish to be possessed by me

must change as I change

~

~

it is God

who awaits you

in me!

~

~

if

God

was able to emerge from himself

he had first to lay a pathway

of desire

before his feet

he had to spread before him

a sweet savor of beauty

It was then that he caused me to rise up

a luminous mist hanging over the abyss

between the earth & himself

that, in me, he might dwell

among you

~

~

lying

between

God & the earth

as a zone of mutual attraction

I draw them both together

in a passionate union

~

~

 I am

Wisdom

I am

Sophia

hello butler

~

till your hair is white

ye shall

cultivate my grounds

be wary

harsh I am to the

undisciplined

the senseless do not stay with

me for long

I will weigh as heavily on the

senseless as a grindstone

I am Sofia

goddess of wisdom &

 I am true to my name

I am not accessible to many

listen

eunuch

!

take my advice

do not reject my counsel

put your feet into my fetters

& your neck into my collar

offer your skinny shoulder to my burden

do not be impatient of my bonds

court me with all your soul

& with all your might keep in

my ways

once you kneel before me

I will not let you

go

I hope

you are possessed by me

my property

in the end you will find rest in

me

& I will take the form of joy

for you

my fetters you will find

hasty pasty & tasty

my collar a precious necklace

my yoke will be a golden ornament

& my bonds be purple ribbons

you will wear me like a robe of

honor

you will put me on like a crown

of joy

!

~

sofia is brilliant she never fades

by those who love her she is readily

found

she anticipates those who desire her

by making herself known first

whoever gets up early to seek her

will have no trouble

but will find her sitting at the door

~

~

meditating on her is understanding

in its perfect form

and anyone keeping awake for her

will soon be free from care

for she herself searches everywhere

for those who are worthy of

her

benevolently appearing to them on

their ways

anticipating their every thought

for wisdom begins with the sincere

desire for instruction

care for instruction means loving

sofia
