Wisdom /Sophia develops when all of these states of unconditional being are focused into complete acceptance and knowing. In Greek, the word for wisdom is Sophia. Many scriptures refer to wisdom as “precious,” “sacred,” and “feminine.” Solomon expressed this principle beautifully in the Book of Proverbs (Ch. 8): “Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand.
