Sexual Energies: Sophia & Logos

14/12/2016 08:00:00

I am writing this article on December 11. I open the book Goddesses for Every Day by Julie Loar and today’s goddess is…Sapientia – Mystical Union!!! Sapientia, in the Roman tradition, is Sophia! We also find her in the Jewish tradition as Chokhmah, which means wisdom in Hebrew; the three traditions seem to agree on the feminine gender of their respective word. Isn’t this synchronicity a sign of her presence?

It is Gnosticism, the religious and philosophical movement from the Middle-East and the Meditarrean Basin that developped the concept of Sophia. Its premise is the imperfection of the material world where gnosis, or self-knowledge, is the only thing that can set man free. Sophia’s symbol is the dove, in other words the Holy Spirit: Sophia/Shekhinah is Yahweh’s feminine counterpart, man’s life force energy, his soul, that provides him with vigor and vitality. However, in the work of mystic Daniel Andreev, who created a real sophianic movement, she is the Rose of the World representing the unity of all spiritual work; each petal represents one of humanity’s religion or spiritual tradition; the one stem supporting the Rose represents the Source of Creation. Its sacred sanctuary is the church of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey and its stone is brown amber. It is said that her three daughters are Faith (Pistis in Greek), Hope (Elpis) and Love (Agape), sometimes replaced by Charity, and that her mother is the goddess Sige, the silence before Creation. She is celebrated on September 17 in the Greek Orthodox calendar. Some experts agree that Sophia appears near God on Michelangelo’s fresco The Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel.

The subject of mystical union that is related to her in Loar’s book bodes well since the association of Sophia and Logos symbolizes this union. Loar reminds us that she embodies the soul of the world, or humanity’s collective, as well as the mystical union with the Divine that sages and spiritual pilgrims aspire to. Isn’t Logos the Divine itself, the creative principle, sound, the Word that created universes and worlds through the use of vibration inspired by the wisdom and power of its feminine counterpart?

For the Christian Gnostics, Sophia is the Mother of humanity but her origins are found within various religious traditions of the Orient and Occident: she is Isis, the Egyptian goddess, sister and spouse of Osiris; King Solomon’s beloved in The Song of Songs; Wisdom in the Book of Proverbs; Demeter and Artemis, Greek goddesses of nature, and later Mother Mary, Yeshua’s mother as well as Maryam, his consort, better known as Mary-Magdalene. Yeshua himself was the embodiment of Logos. Sophia also appeared in visions to German great mystic, author, doctor and healer Hildegard of Bingen in the 12th century who wrote that Sophia created everything "with love and tenderness" and is the one who connects all polarities. Sophia is the bearer of divine feminine wisdom, as opposed to plain human knowledge.

The return of Sophia, after centuries of withdrawal, is already well underway. Each one of us can choose to have an intimate relationship with her. Integrating her within our lives means reconnecting with the divine maternal aspect that unites to the unconditional love that allows us to be more authentically, knowing we are infinitely loved in every moment. She offers her chalice of wisdom as an invitation for us to come and drink out of it, find comfort in it and own it. The conscious relationship with Sophia or any other mythological or religious feminine figure or Ascended Master that embodied her is a profound and timeless source of higher inspiration, comfort, groundedness, balance, harmony, peace and divine love that is nowhere else to be found.
