We are now reaching that type of maturity, collectively which has outgrown its childish shoes of being told by others what to do, to think, how to act and be.
In essence this is what the rising of consciousness is all about. It is stepping past the childhood and tumultuous teenage years, and into the state of true adulthood and maturity. It is the Golden Age of Wisdom that is dawning now, with the Age of Aquarius. Overlighting this whole process is none other, than Sophia, the Goddess of Wisdom in conjunction with Athena and Artemis. These three Goddesses form the triad of the return to state of inner knowing and wisdom.
When I use the term “Goddess’ I use it with the understanding that all of these Goddesses are representing a type of archetype, a type of inner knowing which is in essence is there to show us the way. They are then the way shower archetypes who are showing us the higher way, the way of wisdom, the weighing and bringing into perfect balance the scales, while Artemis is showing the way of purity.
In our youth and early twenties, we tend to experiment. We are not quite formed. We are still searching for our own limits, and are easily swayed by the opinion of masses. We have to be “cool” and ‘with-it”. To fit – that is what it is all about. However something deep down is there – a type of longing to fit in, to be “cool” and accepted by a lot of people.
The older we get, the more we start forming our own brand of life. We suddenly realize somewhere along the line that we cannot please everybody. We cannot become someone we are not. We tried to fit into someone else’s boxes, but found we did not fit. It is like trying on shoes: If the shoes are not the perfect fit they will feel uncomfortable, give us blisters, pinch our toes, or we will constantly lose them, as they are too big for us.
The wayshowers for this new Age, were the hippies, the flower children of the sixties: the Beatles, the flower power. They created a type of revolution, which is even now being felt. Suddenly it became ‘cool” to meditate and go in search of a Guru. They turned society on its head at the time, and a lot of those hippies, have become the Elders of our time.
As much as they created that revolution, the next generations then added to that and something deep within mankind started to shift. When I look at how my mother was brought up and how I was brought up, then there already was a huge gap. As mankind became freed from the Victorian and Edwardian corsets, and waved the sexual rules, those same over-exuberant rebellion brought a new void. Technology changed the planet and world has shrunk, as we can communicate easily now via Skype, Internet etc.
Yet, somehow in all of this a deep shift was happening. That shift was so eloquently summed up by Dr. Victor Frankl, as the “search for meaning.”
Yes, one could turn the world upside down, but at the end of it all, you there came a time in your life when you are faced with yourself. Yes, yourself. That deep void inside of you, those shadows, those dragons and all those things inside, which go bump in the night. When all was said and done, when you have done it all, there is only yourself left and nowhere else to go.
In this stage, some people go into overdrive with drug, alchohol, abuse – anything to try and take that void away. Some are adrenalin junkies, some exercise junkies, some sex junkies and some just junkies for the sake of being one.
Then the dark nights of the soul descend. One can go to the doctor, have the pain of the body numbed, but that inner pain will not go away. Deep down we know that something is wrong…. Some people have near-death experiences to suddenly realize that they have wasted their lives in the search for meaning, and wasted it on all the wrong things.
When the dark nights of the soul descend, and there is no way out, but travelling deeper into oneself in search for answers, then miracles start to happen. For the deeper you delve the more connected you become to something greater than the sum total of self – that is the infinite source of all love and life, and the Creator of all. It is the source of all life and energy, and it is life itself, staring back at you.
It is like you are seeing yourself for the first time in the cosmic mirror of life and love. “Is this me?” you ask. As the voices start whispering back at you, you find that what truly is reflecting back at you is your soul – that energy, that immense eternal I AM THAT I AM, which has been there, inside of your all along. The more you start communicating with this BEING, the more you find yourself and your higher meaning and purpose in life. There are AHA and lightbulb moments and slowly but surely, you start to change.
This is the moment when the moth becomes the butterfly. It is moment of transformation from the old into the new…..
As the new takes over, there comes a state of inner peace, inner contentment, and inner love, which spans eternity. It is the state of Being, which is totally whole. It is firmly anchored in the Divine, and it is firmly anchored in the soul, and all that exists in all of creation.
It in here that one starts tapping into the wisdom, the inner knowing, the guidance and wisdom of your own soul and soul group, and more than this, the cosmic whole, for one is intimately linked to the Divine – the Father/Mother God.
It is here that Sophia rises, for Sophia is the Holy threefold Flame. She embodies Love, Wisdom and Power. She wields the mighty sword of truth, integrity, power and wisdom. She cuts through all the dross as she stands there – total there and beautiful in her power.
When she is there, then all pretense starts falling away. She blazes through all that is not authentic, truthful and she blazes a trail to burn away all the dross, all that which no longer serves the Highest Good.
As the she makes her reign felt, she will bring out the truth – all that which has stayed hidden and buried under piles of lies and control. She cuts away all the bondage, the chains, and brings in the highest truth, wisdom and power.
For she holds the White Flame – the Flame of Purity, and this is the Flame, which is the highest vibrational flame, and nothing that is not of this high vibration, can sustain form – for all the untruths are transmuted: only the purest truth remains.
As Athena and Ma- At hold the scales of justice and balance, and Artemis the purity, it is Sophia, who with her sisters, bring about massive changes to the planet, as it is the power of truth, the power of wisdom, the power of justice and balance which is now sweeping forth.
And over it all, stands the threefold flame, of Love, Power and Wisdom
