TO BE CALLED SOFIA



To be called Sofia
Is to look for the stars beyond the stars
To gaze upward—to an outward reality
Towards the vastness, the blackness, the forever coldness
And in deep space, find the tranquility to be

To be called Sofia
Is to know that without seeing the distant stars
Trust that they are there…
To touch their hidden, faraway brilliance one day

To be called Sofia
Is to recognize the Mother of All
By holding sanity in one hand
And madness in the other
Then to present to the world a Pathway of Reconciliation

To be called Sofia
Is to step outside the static drone of our motion
To welcome the Ec-static as the birth of a new reality

To be called Sofia
Is to gaze upward to the forever blackness
And to see an infinite multitude of white lights
Piercing tiny holes in cold, dark space

To be called Sofia
Is to know that light permeates even the coldest darkness
As the Mother of All Knowing holds her quiet, resting child to her breast
