She is different than she was…


She is different than she was.

She opened her wide eyes and saw it.

All of it. All of creation

with the majesty and tragedy

existing side by side.

With the fruit of this knowledge comes

both burden and blessing.

We have been telling her story

since the Genesis of the genesis.

What happens when she tells her

story? In you? In us?

And so this is our work, She said.

To know the distinctions for ourselves.

You can blame the woman, blame the man,

blame God or that old devil.

We have famed and reframed our stories

they have shaped our minds, hearts and histories.

This truth remains:

Love has opened the gates wide.

The Tree of Life has bloomed for us.

Throw off your garments of shame.

Release your stories of what no longer serves.

Receive forgiveness freely given.

Come now with me,

enter back into the garden

and reside with us there.

There are stories to be told

of birth, transfiguration, death

and rising again being told

by the campfire of the Anointed One.


Enter ye in by the gate called


Shiloh Sophia
