The Wisdom Manifesto
Within her is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique,
active, incisive, unsullied,
benevolent, sharp, irresistible,
beneficent, friendly to all,
steadfast, dependable, unperturbed,
penetrating all intelligent, pure and most subtle spirits.
She is quicker to move than any motion.
She is so pure, she pervades and permeates all things.
She is the breath of the power of God,
pure emanation of the glory of the almighty,
so nothing impure can find its way into her.
She is a reflection of the eternal light,
untarnished mirror of God's active power, and image of all goodness.
Although alone, she can do all.
Herself unchanging, she makes all things new.
She turns people into God's friends and prophets.
She is indeed more splendid than the sun and outshines all the constellations.
She deploys her strength from one end of the world to the other,
and she governs the whole world for its good.
