Maria Sophia becomes through her union with her paradisiacal-self, the first fully realized human being to return to heaven as a prodigal child. Her experience is imprinted in the super-etheric realm around the earth and available to use by initiates as an aid to their development. And even beyond this marvelous trinity of forces active in Maria Sophia, we also understand that Jesus gave over to Mary his body of wisdom that had ripened the wisdom of Zarathustra, Hermes, and Moses.
Every spiritual tradition has reverence for the elders who are called many names: ascended masters, descended avatars, bodhisattvas who become buddhas, the Mother Lodge of the Sun, the Masters of Wisdom, saints, prophets, tulkus, arahats, yogis, yoginis, yidams, great initiates, shamans, kahunas, deities, devas, and hierarchical beings, to name but a few. The distinctions between these vastly different ranks of human and spiritual beings are often confused and deserve clear definition so that discernment can follow.
