Power of Presence

If the sum total of our spirituality is larger than our minds can encompass, then we can better appreciate particular qualities through their personification as certain spiritual figures. The figure of Sophia carries, within certain Christian traditions, that aspect of our spirituality thought of as feminine wisdom. Her wisdom is rooted in experience, in compassion. She thinks with her heart and is more concerned with the processes than with the products of a life lived fully. She does not value the presence of power but the power of presence. We all carry Sophia in our hearts and when we connect to our feminine wisdom, we embody her in all her magnificence.

from Jill Mellick, “Sophia: Feminine Wisdom,” in Coming Home to Myself
