Seven Pillars


Seven Pillars exists to support the advancement of wisdom in the global culture. By wisdom is meant knowledge that is rooted in the experience of the heart. This is knowledge that recognizes the universe as the living expression of a sacred unity.

I decided to put the link to this site here in Gaia's Gown. Not all the articles listed are directly related to Gaia, but as you can see many of them are:

Hope you enjoy.

Re: Seven Pillars


Katfriend, my first intro to this thing called Seven Pillars of Wisdom happened when I was reading the Old Testament. But I was like 16 or so. Then, a bunch of years later, I read T.E. Lawrence's account of the Arab revolt he was involved in against the Turkish Empire during WW1. Which account, and penned at Oxford I think, he called "Seven Pillars of Wisdom." The reference involves Proverbs 9 from the Christian's Old Testament:

Does this go with what you go with? It works for me.

Re: Seven Pillars


Tere,

I had never heard of the Seven Pillars of Wisdom myself, but you are right: the term comes from Proverbs:

"Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn her seven pillars. She has prepared her food, she has mixed her wine; she has also set her table." (Proverbs 9:1)

The goddess of wisdom is also known as Sophia, but she has been called by many names. In the Gnostic gospel "The Sophia of Jesus," she is referred to in this way: 'First Begettress Sophia, Mother of the Universe'. Some call her 'Love'.

Now doesn't this just tie in with the Apulius Golden Ass passage?
