“Eve Tempted by the Serpent, by William Blake

The story of Sophia, part 2

Into the Garden

“I am the creator of all. I am the Alpha and Omega. I am God,”

Sophia laughed, and the sun was birthed from the sound, and suddenly illuminated the planets and the Archons and Yaldaboeth, which had all spun in darkness so long.

“You are a god because you are my son, and all your works are but moldings of the clay of my womb, and a carpet for the glory of my true creation: Humankind.

For she, and her partner, and their children, will have more power in a single finger than all your greatest works combined. And although you may enslave them for a time in your material prison, my children will know me, and be nourished by me, and will be held endlessly in my bosom. And one day, they will rise up and destroy you.”

And with that, Sophia laid herself into the most watery sphere — the bluest, and most attuned to love — and cast a mantle of green around her shoulders. Before she lay herself in the deepest earth’s core, she plucked from her bosom a single drop of her own pure light, and let it fall onto the lush, green carpet, from which sprouted a single green fruit. Then she sank into the earth’s core and became known as Gaia.

“Adam, get up!”

and her breath sparked in him the light of Sophia Gaia, and he leaped to his feet and shouted for joy.

“I am alive!”

he said. And he saw Zoe, who is divine Eve, and worshipped her, and lie with her.

“What existed before you?”

and the Archons knew their plan was stillborn.
