The real story of the wisdom goddess, Sophia, was lost within the Nag Hammadi codices for thousands of years until these texts were discovered in an Egyptian cave in 1945. We can thank John Lash, a scholar of comparative mythology, who sought to decode these very damaged, Gnostic texts with an open-minded perspective rather than from an established viewpoint that might influence his findings. Subsequently, his translations reveal a new story for mankind, the Sophia mythos, that challenges our widely-accepted beliefs.
New messages for humanity from the lost wisdom goddess myth are available to us if we are willing to open our hearts and minds to a new source, a new story and a new setting of creation.
Here is a short, condensed version of the Sophia mythos from which to extrapolate significant messages, and for which all credit belongs to Lash. His eloquent, longer and complete narrative is available at this link and so worth reading.
The Fall of the Wisdom Goddess
It begins within our galaxy at the heart of the galactic core wherein the source of all creation resides as our eternal home. Our human design was the emanation of the goddess Sophia and the god Thelete, who together joyfully danced and dreamed our intended potential into existence as the expressions of their divine imagination. Upon the emanation into the third spiral arm of the galaxy, specifically the molecular cloud of Orion, Sophia and Thelete detached from their design, yet remained sentient and caring observers without intervention. Sophia, acting alone, was passionately drawn to the edge of the galactic core known as the Pleroma, where she engaged in her own projected dreaming upon the full genius potential of her collaborative design for humanity. Increasingly unable to remain detached, Sophia’s intense longing to become involved with her dream slowly pulled her over the Pleroma’s edge whereupon the fatal moment of her fall occurred. Sophia, the wisdom goddess, plunged out of the galactic core into the Kenoma while producing a torrential plume of organic light that electrified this realm of dark matter. Like a thrown stone into a still lake, her fall sent ripples of unfamiliar energetic light impacting this shadowy realm whereupon bizarre events began to unfold. The goddess’s divine currents began to fracture and split apart while attracting inorganic species, the Archons, and a frightening figure with reptilian mutations that seized dominion over the Archon swarm. Sophia’s divine light was now responsible for the unintentional rise of a cosmic, cyborg-like species with a delusional overlord, seeking to parasite off the arrival of this divine energy. The goddess had to do something to ward off her creation of this invasive species, and imparted some of her divine dreaming capacity to the overlord whereupon he was able to mimic the divine design of the heavenly Pleroma; but the artificial design failed to maintain stability. Then an unexpected event occurred in the Orion Nebula where Sophia was guarding her dream seed for humanity: a new star was born from which a planetary system emerged. The Archon overlord and his followers assumed possession of this new solar system as their new inorganic habitat devoid of real life.
Sophia, meanwhile, recognized that she must morph into an organic, sentient planetary body, imbued with her divine awareness and wisdom, in order to provide a habitat for her divine emanation of humanity: she transformed into planet Earth, but unfortunately was captured into the inorganic Archon solar system. Now, eons later, Sophia has revealed the resilience of her life force by which to withstand traumas, extinctions, entrapment, deception and abuse by her dreaming creation: humanity, who remains under the Archon’s spell. The Gnostic teachings suggest that humanity’s role and fate are intimately intertwined with Sophia’s final move: to correct her mistaken fall and to realign with the divine light of creation as a planetary body.
Before we consider the messages for humanity presented to us within this narrative that Lash has uncovered, he suggests we ask a crucial question: What was so threatening about the Gnostic teachings, which flourished for thousands of years within mystery schools all across Europe, that would cause its utter and complete eradication from the face of the Earth by the Roman church?
Messages For Humanity
~ The creation of the human species was a creative and imaginative collaboration between a male god and a female goddess.
~The human genome contains the innate, divine gifts of intelligence, imagination and illumination with which to self-direct its destiny.
~ Our planet Earth is a living, breathing, sentient, intelligent and divine embodiment of the goddess Sophia.
~ It is Sophia’s divine, organic light that illuminates all life on our planet, and with which we can directly experience to further our own illumination.
~ Sophia cautions us as to the presence of an inorganic, cyborg-like, parasitic species, the Archons, that use the power of simulated substitution as a means of mind-controlling and deceiving humanity. This myth provides recorded proof of a predatory, alien interference.
~ The Earth along with the sun and moon are organic planets captured within an inorganic solar system. A bit of proof is NASA’s recent discovery of Saturn’s artificial rings that contain no organic matter.
~ Sophia asserts to the Archons that her creation will ultimately overcome their imposed deception. If we are to do so, we must alter our disposition to recognize the living planet beneath our feet, and accept our presence within her divine experiment as a co-creative collaboration.
~ The Sophia mythos is the only narrative that has no conclusive ending; perhaps so that we might recognize our co-creator role as sovereign, free beings to steer our destiny within Sophia’s dream for us, and dispel the deceptions of enslavement, salvation and end times.
~ The wisdom goddess myth suggests, contrary to our currently accepted world mythologies, that she is the true light over the false light of a lone, omnipotent God ideology. Thus, the concept of Luciferian or Satanic evil may just be a clever deception on the part of the Archons.
~ Our capacity to assist Sophia in her correction involves the correction of our erroneous beliefs, spawned by the artificial and deceptive matrix of the Archons that has led us down a wayward path away from the truth of our divinely inspired design.
The guiding principles of natural, universal and spiritual laws provide us with the truth and knowledge of our co-creative role in contrast to man made laws that imprison us in our co-destructive role. The generative principle of care has been lost with Sophia, and whose feminine principle is rooted in causing no harm. To conclude, we might ask ourselves yet another question suggested by Lash: Do you believe that a God, or any God, capable of creating the beauty of our planet and the wonder of all living creatures, can simultaneously seek to inflict punishment upon its creation and cause harm?
Perhaps it is time to rethink the apocalyptic endings that come with our globally accepted myths, and embrace the one open-ended myth that restores the beauty and love of a divine dream in which we are the co-creative actors.
