THEO-SOPHIA'S WISDOM IN CULTIVATING WISDOM
Wisdom's Ray is little interested in the world of men. It does not deal with knowledge, mental genius, nor accretion of intellectual facts even when they pertain to metaphysical subjects. Absent conscious Illumination, the outer mind is no better equipped to chart its own course or counsel others than those who act by the feelings and the instincts of their all too finite intellects.
True Wisdom comes by facing the Sun within and drawing forth the conscious realization that all Reality, Truth, Beauty, and Buddhic awareness must be drawn forth from within the Flame of one's own Heart! By listening to the Voice of the Silence in humble and silent reverence, without mental concepts or emotional turmoil, the disciple becomes imbued and fired with the dazzling Sun of the Mind of God. To this end the Ascended Masters pour their own Attainment upon the hearts and minds of those disciples who aspire to Self-Mastery and Perfection.
The mark of true Wisdom is to be found in the disciple's ability to discern between God Reality and worldly illusions, or maya. This is an invaluable skill acquired by those who are willing to sit at the feet of the Mother of Wisdom and learn Her ways. Christ Discrimination, the ability to distinguish Real from unreal, enables each one to release the greater powers and genius of the God Presence.
Truly, freedom from religious superstition and worldly fascinations is more precious than rubies and gold!
