Hetepu (Peace) Family,
Here recently, the second edition of the Maa Aankh Volume I was released and although I wrote it. While I was rereading it, it was amazing to me all that I had experienced, and what I survived that made me who I am today. It makes me grateful to say that I may not be where I want to be today, but I am glad that I am not where I use to be yesterday.
As I said before, while I was rereading it, I came across the Maa Aankh cosmogram and was taken aback by how I was blessed to make this discovery. I realized it then, but I realize it even more so today that it was truly divine inspiration that led me to discover the Maa Aankh. This is because like most people attracted to the Kamitic (Kemetic or Ancient Egyptian) sciences. The very mention of ancient Egypt brought to my mind the great pyramids, the sphinx and a host of other magnificent finds because Kamit (Kemet) is full of mystery and wonder. So much so, that if one is not careful it is very easy to find oneself lost amongst all of the Kamitic (Kemetic mysteries) riddles that continue to exist today, thereby forgetting that the purpose of history is not just to quote facts, but also to retrieve the spiritual techniques used that made their civilization great. Fortunately, I had several guides or “hidden hands” that led me through her maze and kept my eyes on the prize, which was to understand that the Kamitic (Kemetic) civilization stood for over 3,000 years and consisted of a series of relatively unstable periods followed by stable kingdoms, because of the Maa.
What is the Maa?
Maa translates to balance, harmony, holistic, law, righteousness, and truth. It was personified as a women wearing a single ostrich feathered headdress who was called Ma’at or Maat, which meant that the Maa is flexible, practical and concerned mostly with ethics and morals. Essentially, what it means is that everything that the Creator created is perfect because the Creator is Perfect. Therefore, everything that happens happens for a reason because everything is interdependent upon one another. We see this clearly in our ecosystem and in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the land we live off of and so on. This means that if everything that the Creator created is perfect in the eyes of the Creator. Then, each and every one of us was created to be perfect and it is our destiny to be happy, fulfilled and to have peace. This essentially is what Maa is all about, perfect balance, perfect harmony, etc.
Of course the question that comes to mind is “Why don’t we have a perfect life now?”
When we look at the news, we see that our society is literally plagued with all sorts of atrocities and it appears to be getting worse. It makes one question if the Creator exist why would the Creator allow so much pain and suffering to exist.
According to the ancient Kamitic philosophers, the reason so many of us are not happy, fulfilled and at peace is because we live in a Cause and Effect world, but most of us are only aware of the physical effect aspect of reality. In other words, we know that our physical world has physical laws like gravity, which makes it possible for fruit to fall off a tree. What most of us aren’t aware of are the spiritual laws that created the tree, the fruit and made it possible for the fruit to fall in the first place. This physical reality that most of us are aware of has many names but the ancient Kamitic philosophers called this reality TASETT, while the spiritual reality is referred to as KAMTA.
So, in order to have a perfect life, we can’t wait for a savior to give it to us. We have to master the spiritual laws ourselves, which are more powerful than the physical laws governing our world. We simply have to take responsibility for our own salvation.
Why Study the Maa Aankh?
What doe the Maa Aankh have to do with all of this and why should we study it? It is because the Kamitic philosopher left teachings stating that when the Creator created the universe. The first act was to bring into existence the Rau – the Holy Spirit and Power of the Divine, which is the source of eternal joy, peace, fulfillment, etc. Afterwards, the Maa was the first principle that was created, which brought duality into our world such as positive and negative, fire and water, aggressive and passive energies, masculine and feminine, light and dark, also called Shu and Tefnut, which are similar to the Chinese Yang and Yin. It is because of these two forces (Shu and Tefnut), nothing can exist by itself because it would be chaotic and destructive. For example, too much fire metaphorically would be like a wildfire or an erupting volcano, while too much water is like a flood or hurricane. Both forces are needed and are interdependent upon one another, in order balance to exist or for there to be Maa. This means that everything that the Creator created is Perfect because it has within itself a dual nature, which is Maa.
Since we were created from a Perfect Creator, we therefore have two natures as well. The first nature that most of us are aware of was created to help us to physically survive. It looks out for us, number one, numero uno, the Me and it is what we call our ego, which the Kamitic philosophers personified and called Set (the Kamitic devil that later became Set-an or Satan). Although our Set helps us to physically survive, Set also prevents us from sharing and working well with others, because he is selfish, egotistical, stuck in the past and only concerned with the physical world. Set is the one that prevents us from tapping in the Divine Power of God or the Rau. He is the one that keeps our mind closed and keeps us from growing not only spiritually, but emotionally, mentally, financially, etc. because he only sees one part of the picture, the physical side of reality, hence the realm TASETT.
Our second nature is what many refer to as our higher self and it gives us the desire to help others, share and love one another, which is why the Kamitic philosophers called it Osar (Asar, Ausar or Greek Osiris). Our Osar connects us to the Rau because he is concerned with the hidden spiritual reality, which is why the Kamitic philosophers named the spiritual reality KAMTA.
So, the purpose of studying the Maa Aankh is that it simplify matters by helping us to see beyond the illusions, by revealing that our worst enemy and greatest ally lies within. This means that the only one stopping you from progressing, stopping you from receiving a blessing, stopping you from healing your body, stopping your progress is ourself or rather your Set (ego) because you are stubbornly refuse to listen to your inner awareness, your Osar. The Maa Aankh therefore was discovered in order to help us to become more like Osar, that is transition from being a slave of Set to being led by Osar, because the more we become like Osar. The more we master the spiritual laws and are able to manifest the fullness of the Rau in our life.
CanAnyone Study the Maa Aankh?
Everyone, needs the wisdom of the ancients, which is why when Kamit existed, it played host to a number of Greek philosophers, but just like in ancient times. There are some people today who only want to discuss the intellectual aspects of the Kamitic science and go about their business by not applying it all, while there are others that prefer not to take any responsibility for their life and instead blame their shortcomings on those surrounding them. The Maa Aankh is not meant for these individuals because it was created using Kamitic philosophy and the Kongo Cross, which makes it a living diagram. Hence, something not meant to be taken lightly.
If however you are tired of the direction your life is going and you are ready to make a serious change in your life. The Kamitic sciences will greatly improve your life, but know this. The road will not always be easy. There are times when you really wish you could take the blue pill that was offered to Neo in the Matrix, and wish everything would just go away, because the road to transformation is not an easy path. In the end, though you are grateful that you stuck in there because you have matured and you find that the things that brought you down, don’t do so anymore. You are more peaceful and happier because now you are living Maa.
Hope this helps.

Hetepu (Peace) Family. The other day I was talking to my former supervisor who is very religious and she was just telling me all about the Holy Spirit. I thought it was interesting for one because even though she knows I don’t believe everything she believes. She still identified me according to the way I live my life as being “Born Again,” which is why I titled this post this way. But, all while she was talking I was just wondering if she even knew where this came from. Then I got to thinking about how churches are so different now.
Let me explain real quick. Remember the music of the Motown era, Staxx and so on? Remember when those singers like Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes (sorry to all music purist, I know I am jumping around…I WAS NOT born during that era, please forgive me :) ) and all of them talked about their beginning or how they developed their musical talents? Do you remember what they all would say? That’s right the Church. They all gave the same answer, that they honed their singing, musical, and oratory skills in the Church. Now, if we skip to contemporary times people will not say the same thing. The response is somewhat so-so but you will hear most comment on how they came from the “secular” world and brought their talent to the Church. Interesting isn’t it?
I mean when did the Church start getting its inspiration from the Streets? It was when they loss their Anointing or the Spirit of God, and once they loss this connection, the ability to be Spirit-led wasn’t far behind.
You see, the whole Spirit-led phenomenon that most Churches talk about today was supposed to be due to following the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit. The evidence that one is filled with the Holy Ghost is by speaking-in-tongues based upon the Day of Pentecost. If you ask most churchgoers where this movement began, they will tell you that it all started at the Azusa Street Revival, which was started by William J. Seymour.
What they don’t tell you is that Seymour was a student of Charles Parham and when he came upon the revival he denied it and denounced the movement as being taken over by hypnotists, spiritualists and fortunetellers. (see A Catechism of Christian Doctrine…No. 3, Supplemented by Rev. Thomas L. Kinkead. Bezinger Brother, 1921 pg. 261-262). In fact, Parham’s racial views about African Americans and Mexican Americans involvement in the Pentecostal Movement is what led to the development of separate Pentecostal organizations in the United States.
Obviously, the reason most Black scholars and theologians, as well as non-Black theologians refuse to say anything about this is because they don’t want anyone to know about their African shamanistic roots and spiritualistic origins. But, the failure to acknowledge and address the African element is the reason so many people in the church are experiencing such a disconnect from the Spirit of God. It is all because the practice of speaking-in-tongues as evidence that one has the gift of the Holy Ghost is a form of spirit possession, particularly African trance possession.
This practiced survived in the Untied States because Spiritualism encouraged it by proving that there is life after death and how one could speak to spirits, thus verifying Native American and African beliefs in the otherworld. If it had not been for Spiritualism – particularly Kardec Spiritualism – most of the indigenous practices of Native Americans and Africans throughout the Americas (Caribbean and Latin America) would have become extinct.
So, the practice of speaking in tongues or possession survived, along with other African practices such as prophesizing and shouting, which are all Spirit-led because of Spiritualism. What does this have to do with losing connection to the Spirit of God, you ask? It means that the original beliefs and practices go beyond the Azusa Street Revival. The actual theology comes from Africa.
Being led by the Spirit, as any African Traditional and African Diaspora practitioner will tell you is great, but you have to verify what the Spirit is saying is true, and this is why the loss has occurred. There is no verification process, which means any spirit can come in and tell a person to do something. The older people in the church had ways of discerning if what the spirit was telling them was true or not (called divination), but for reasons “unknown”. Their ways were regarded as being superstitious and backwards practices from Africa, which is the reason it was not taught.
As is the case all throughout the world, when two cultures encounters each other, the dominant culture takes from the other elements, which it sees as being beneficial and profitable to its own, while discarding the rest. So, now when you turn on the radio or watch TV you see all sorts of preachers talking about the Holy Ghost and being led by the Holy Spirit. You will hear all sorts of singers talking about how great the Holy Spirit is and how it is the most beautiful thing in the world. All while these peoples’ lives are in shambles, they have poor nutrition, they have low self-esteem, poor relationships, and impoverished communities but yet the Holy Spirit is wonderful.
Clearly, something is missing and that something is the African element, which the “powers that be” deemed as being superstitious and backwards. It is because most churches do not have this element, which is the basis of the Azusa Street Revival. The reason so many people in the church have simply sold out. With no anointing or no-Spirit you got to find ways to entertain the masses. While it seems a little barbaric to create great coliseums and see gladiators physically kill each other. If you look at most mega churches, they do resemble coliseums and they get on stage and allow their egos to have a slugfest instead. I am not here to judge anyone but really. If all of these people really had the Spirit of God within them some of the issues that exist in our society would cease, so why haven’t they? Clearly, something is wrong.
Please understand my post is not to ridicule the church. I have become a very objective individual, so I can and will listen to anyone because Absolute Truth is Absolute Truth regardless of whose mouth it comes out of. I enjoy listening to some preachers when it is the Spirit sermonizing and not the speaker’s ego. The purpose of this post is get you to understand that the original idea of what it means to be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. Didn’t come from Azusa Street but from Africans and early African Americans who wanted to be “saved” and delivered from slavery. American Churches watered down the original purpose and in a minute we will see why.
You see, the Africans and early African Americans relying upon remnants from Africa combined with Christianity created the Spirit-led tradition that people are so happy to talk about today. They also created a coded language that allowed them discern if what the Spirit was telling them was true or not, unlike people nowadays who just want to experience the Spirit or feel good and do nothing with it. Therefore, if you want to be truly reborn, you need to understand that it is not about listening to the Spirit. You have to learn to trust the Spirit and follow the Spirit’s guidance. Once you do this, you will realize after you have verified that what the Spirit is telling is true. That the reason you speak-in-tongues is because all of those tongues are the ancestors who reside in the unseen spirit world.
But not every dead person is an ancestor. Some of the dead were bad people in life and they continue to be bad people in the afterlife. This is why the elders had to find a way to discern what the Spirit was saying is true. Most of our elders did this through bibliomancy, the art of divining with a book. Although any book can be used, the book most of our elders used was the Christian bible. Are you beginning to see why it was regarded as superstitious?
Unfortunately, most of the original theology that the elders relied upon was lost because Jesus from the African and early African American perspective was seen as being a patriarchal ancestor. Fortunately, this early African American concept was not new. It was practiced in Kamit/Kemet (Ancient Egypt) some 3,000 years ago and the patriarchal ancestor was Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek).
This is the whole reason behind the heroic Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus in Greek) fighting his evil uncle in order to reclaim his ancestor’s crown, the white crown of Kamit called the Hedjet or Crown of Osar.
So, how do you know when you have been reborn. You will know when you are truly reborn because your Osar (the patriarch of your lineage) gives you self-pride. When you have pride in yourself, you will live a better life because your Osar will help you not to do it. Your Osar will tell you that certain things are harmful to you. You can “try the Spirit” and it will help you in everyway. It will not cause you to humiliate yourself by altering your looks just to be accepted by the public. Most importantly, the Spirit will get you to stand up and fight in whatever way possible against injustice. It will truly liberate you of your fears because as Jesus said, the Spirit is a Comforter. So the question that remains is why would the “powers that be” take the African element out, besides trying to disassociate itself with spiritualism? Well, remember this historical event?
Ok, maybe not. How about these historical events?
Do you get the picture? King was transformed by the Holy Spirit, which transcended all sorts of cultural and racial boundaries. This is why he was able to mobilize people to march on Washington, D.C. Mind you, when I say they marched, they didn’t take buses and drive to D.C. then walked the rest of the way, like these contemporary marches. The people marched from all over the country to D.C. Regardless of what you believe about King, the fact is that he led the most powerful march in the history of the country, which is why his influence is still felt. I believe clearly you can see it wasn’t ego driving these people who marched during the Civil Rights era…it was the Spirit. This is the reason the religion has been watered down, because they don’t want any of us, YOU included, to be the next Martin L. King Jr.
This is why to be reborn the right way means to learn how to connect first to your Osar and this is the true purpose of Kamta.
So, with all of these spiritual people in our society, it is time to change the world.
Hope this helps.

Hetepu (Peace) Family,
Today, as I went to the grocery store and was bombarded by all of the candy eggs, chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and duckies blocking the aisle. I was reminded that Easter is approaching and so much of what was sacred has been made profane because of materialism. I of course, have no problem with making something sacred an enjoyable celebration for children, but the commercializing of the concept of rebirth is a bit disturbing given the state of affairs we find ourselves in. So I wrote this post in response. In all sincerity, salvation is salvation, meaning that there is no one group that has a monopoly on salvation. I use the title “Saved Kamitically (Kemetically)” to distinguish between the popular notion of salvation and the more profound meaning according to the Ancient Egyptians, where the concept originated. Please note: The made-up word Kamitically/Kemetically is being used purposely to describe the metaphysical process that occurs in rebirth.
What is Salvation?
Well, the term salvation is derived from the Latin word salvare, which means, “to be saved”. Thus indicating that one’s life is in danger or peril. When we speak of salvation in regards to spirituality, we are referring to one’s soul being in danger. This means that there is an aspect of your life that is going in a particular direction, which is leading to your soul’s demise.
Sidebar: Of course, there are some that will say that the purpose of being “saved” is to be “saved from sin,” which separates us from God. This is true, but I have yet to meet anyone define truly what sin is, or at least specify what is and is not a sin without attaching to it some dogma. For instance, like it is a sin in some organizations to smoke cigarettes. In others, it is okay to smoke cigarettes but a sin to drink alcoholic beverages. Other groups claim it is a sin to do both and to consume pork. Then again, you can find some groups that claim that they are all wrong. This discrepancy is due to not having a true understanding of what Truth is, which we will address later.
But for most of us, we have been taught that “to be saved,” means to be delivered, rescued or taken out of some grave situation that we are in at the present moment.And, for most people because of the popular notion of what salvation has degenerated to. We have been taught that in order to be saved one is to give their life to Christ and all will be well.
I remembered when I was younger, I wanted to be saved from the rising crack epidemic and crack related crimes that were claiming the lives of so many young Black and Latino people in my native city of Detroit. Today some of our youth are fleeing from similar issues such as the gun related violence in Chicago and other urban cities across the United States. Some may be praying, “to be saved” from random acts of violence that seems to be spontaneously occurring in public spaces. At the same time, others might be praying, “to be saved” from some domestic issues or abroad to be saved from some type of conflict.
Whatever the case, we are told that the way to be saved is to give your life to Christ. The giving of one’s life to Christ ritual has worked for some but not for the greater majority, as we see in the rapid decline of our society’s ethics and morality. Also, because of a lack of spiritual science, for those individuals that were successful in giving their life to Christ, for him “to save” them from whatever danger they were fleeing from. Their life may have suddenly improved for the moment, but after the zeal has died down, they find themselves in a familiar powerless situation.
The reason this spiritual remedy is a temporary fix is because nothing occurs suddenly. According to Ancient African cosmology, everything happens for a reason because we live in a Cause and Effect universe. You might not understand what you did to get in the predicament or situation that you are in. In fact, the actual cause of you being in the present situation you are in could have taken place in a past lifetime, no one knows but God. The point of the matter is that you are in the Effect stage right now, meaning you only see one part of the universe – the physical realm.
Right now, according to Ancient African cosmology, you are going through the storm. You are in a living Hell or in the Devil’s workshop, which the ancient Kamitic/Kemetic people allegorized as an arid, red and desolate desert they called TASETT – the Red Land of Set (the Kamitic/Kemetic devil), who is said to be the author of confusion, illusion, chaos, conflict, war, etc. It should be noted that it was the desert where Jesus was tempted by the Set-an or Satan.
If we were to draw from Jesus’ experience while he spent his 40 days and nights in the desert. We would note that he did not pray to be delivered or saved from the living Hell he was in, nor did he ask to be saved when the devil visited him.
Have you ever wondered why?
Well, think about it. If you were saved from placing your hand over a fire when you were a child, would you have learned how to respect this force yet, master the ability of using fire for constructive or destructive purposes? Answer, probably not. The point that people miss is that the whole meaning behind the temptation is that the devil was offering Jesus a shortcut to Power.
What Am I Saying?
To put it plainly, the situations that we are in is the metaphoric fire meant to transform us, just like it did Jesus. Fire tempers metal and then it makes it resilient. This means we are not supposed to be praying for salvation, which is the reason so many of us are not having our prayers answered. We are supposed to be praying for the power and strength so that we can overcome the devil within us and outside of our being. That is why we are in these present situations.
So How Do We Get Saved Kamitically/Kemetically?
Understanding that we cannot and will not be totally “saved” from a situation, means that it is part of our destiny that we are in this situation in the first place. We were placed in this situation so that we can observe what the problem is from the inside and out. We must complete the cycle or the revolution. Many of us get lost because we get stuck or we stop in the RED – TASETT. We have to continue on and make it to the BLACK, because Rebirth takes place on the other side. So, how do we get to the other side? Well, this is where those three classic steps come in – Repent, be Baptized and Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost, but I am speaking Kamitically/Kemetically:
- Repent – means that you see the error in your ways due to your ignorance and you ask for forgiveness. This is usually hardest step because many of us do not believe that we are part of the problem. Sometimes part of the problem can simply be you not willing to accept the fact that your perspective of life is limited to your personal experience; and that you must learn to rely upon your intuition. This requires you having faith in the unknown. As stated earlier, everything happens for a reason regardless if we recognize it or not.
- Baptized – means that you make a commitment to God (and your ancestors) not to engage in the destructive act ever again. It is a form of initiation. Spiritually inclined people know that you can be baptized by water (the literal way) or baptized by fire (strictly metaphorical, referring to initiation by life, where you have to spiritually evolve in order to survive). In the olden days, this was the original purpose for people ritually bathing themselves. Nowadays they sell colored and perfumed waters in grocery stores with the title “Curios”, but when you understand the concept. You can make your own ritual bath like our ancestors did prior to the commercialization of our spiritual practices.
- Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost – means to receive Rau, Spirit of God, and allow it to empower you. In the beginning it may seem like a struggle, but eventually roads will open, opportunities will present themselves, etc. assisting you in your objective. This is when our netcharu (neters, angels, etc.) like Npu (Anpu, Anubis, etc.) come to our aide as he did with Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis in Greek).
Now, just like Jesus, you will be tempted by Set to return to your old ways. Whatever the devil held over you, he will bring it back up because he is the only one that causes you to worry about your past, present and future. But true victory comes when you can stare your devil in the face and not be moved or swayed to follow him back up that familiar path. You will know when you have been truly “Reborn (a complete change in consciousness – hence Amun Ra see the Maa Aankh – Ancient African cosmogram above)” when you don’t fear the devil.
You see, rebirth according to Ancient African cosmology, takes place in the hidden, unknown, spiritual realm called KAMTA – the Black Lands where Osar – our Higher Self and the Spark of God reside, deep within the recess of our mind. It is Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek or in Christian lore Jesus) that makes us see how we are connected to each other in our community (hence comm-UNITY).
This is what it truly means to give your life to Christ. It is what the ancient Kamitians (Kemetians) referred to as Maa Kheru, which literally means “True of Word.” We call it nowadays, “Show ‘N Prove”, but it refers to speaking truth and living truth because you now see the Absolute Truth or Maa (holistic). You have a clear vision because now you have both your Eyes (the Solar and Lunar Eyes of Ra).
Another way of saying Maa Kheru is “To Be Made Whole Again”, meaning you have received the double Pschent crown – the white crowns of your KAMTA and the red crown of your TASETT.
It is interesting that after saying this I am reminded of a documentary that broadcasted about some ex-gangbangers who turned their life around and now sponsor antigang events and programs, to prevent young people from falling into trap laid by Set.
The difference I hope you can see in being “Saved Kamitically/Kemetically” is that your salvation is not based upon one ritualistic act, but every time you find your self (soul) in a bind. When life gets chaotic and seems like your demise is near. You have journeyed into the Set’s (the devil’s) realm, which means you are there to purify your soul of your ego (specifically anxiety, fear, selfishness, ignorance, etc.) – the devil within. This is our greatest enemy and the one we fight with all the time. It is here we Repent, Be Baptized and Receive the Holy Spirit.
After we have gone through TASETT (Hell) and died. We will be reborn and can return to help those who are in need of being “saved” themselves.

Hetepu (Peace) Family,
Long time no hear. Hope everything is going well with you all.
For those of who don’t know, I just celebrated another cycle completed (birthday). I had some major challenges this past year, but I made it through the storm, I’ve been reborn and now I am basting in the glorious rays of Rau (see the Maa Aankh for more information), which brings me to the title of this post.
I have heard for years, ever since I started this walk that Judaism, Christianity and Islam stole from the Kamitic/Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) people. And, before we proceed, I would like to say that this is totally untrue. In ancient times, people borrowed ideas left and right, because they were all trying to make sense of the world around them. So, I only used the word “stole” as an attention grabber. Most of the ancient people did not have the same sentiments as people do today. This racial undertone that exists nowadays only came into effect after the Western perspective became worldwide.
It is important to understand this so that we do not make the grave error of throwing the bathwater out with the baby sort of speak.
Sure people had prejudices back in those times, but it was not based upon skin color. Back in ancient times, prejudices were more cultural, which is why you find in the bible that the Hebrews were against the Gentiles. Even though the biblical accounts claim that the Ancient Egyptians despised the Hebrew people by forcing them to build pyramids and things with mud bricks, which has, finally been disputed by archeologists and historians worldwide. Evidence reveals that the Ancient Egyptians were very tolerable of other cultures, but they were a very proud, nationalistic people.
What this means is that many of the ideas and concepts that read about in the bible are very similar to the Kamitic/Kemetic ideas and concepts, because we’re reading another culture’s interpretation of our work. It’s like two people watching the same movie but getting a different interpretation and understanding of the film due to their upbringing. This is why there are so many direct similarities as follows:
- Both Hru and Jesus were born of a virgin.
- Both Hru and Jesus were of royal descent.
- Both Hru and Jesus’ birth was announced by angels
- Attempts were made on both Hru and Jesus as children to kill the forthcoming messiah.
- Both Hru and Jesus were baptized at the age of 30. Hru by Anup the Baptizer and Jesus by John the Baptist.
- Both Hru and Jesus resisted temptation by the devil on a mountain up high.
- Both Hru and Jesus had 12 followers or disciples.
- Both Hru and Jesus are reported to have performed miracles.
- Both Hru and Jesus raised the dead. Hru raised his father Osar (Osiris in Greek) and Jesus raised Lazarus (L-Azarus or EL-Azarus, which is derived from EL-Osar or EL-Asar). And, the list goes on from Abraham’s birthright, which was originally Hru’s to the concept of this world belonging to the devil.
But, what does this mean?
Does this mean that it was all a lie? Does this mean that religion is fake or a man-made product to get the masses to follow blindly? Does this mean that we should hate the Christian religion because of the gross err of the Roman Catholic Church who anointed the genocide of indigenous people in the Americas and blessed the slave trade? Does this mean we should hate Christians because of the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG), whose Anglican missionaries twisted the scriptures thus creating the ridiculous Hamitic curse, in order to justify slavery? And, we can go on and on…
Well, to be honest with you I use to hate Christianity, until I learned that most of the concepts written in the bible were Kamitic/Kemetic in origin, which means we have a poor translation of it. I can’t fault the people for trying; they tried and failed by comparison. Period. One of the Codes of Maa (See MAA: A Guide to the Kamitic/Kemetic Way for Personal Transformation) stressed that we shouldn’t obsess and worry over the past but, we should concentrate upon the present in order to make a better future. That being said, I am so grateful for being made aware of the Kamitic/Kemetic philosophy and theology because it is very life changing.
How? Well, it has to be understood that there are some archeologists, historians and other scholars, that don’t want people to know this, but contrary to popular belief. The Kamitic/Kemetic people didn’t worship all sorts of gods and goddess as claimed. They did believe in a number of intelligent spiritual beings just like we do today. But, one major difference between them and us is that they didn’t interpret their spiritual texts literally, and this is what makes their philosophy and theology so life changing.
You see, although the Kamitic/Kemetic people believed in Osar (Asar, Ausar, and Osiris in Greek), they understood that Osar was the godhead within us all. In fact, all of the so-called gods and goddesses are all metaphors describing and illustrating cosmic events that occur within our being and throughout the universe. For instance, the Immaculate Conception between Osar and Oset (Aset, Auset and Isis in Greek) occurs every time water germinates a seed, a woman accepts a man into her sacred womb, when the sun and moon share the sky, etc. You see, it is metaphor about something that is beautiful, magical and magnificent between male and female energies. These energies are the same energies that exist within us all. There are positive and negative forces within and all around us.
You know when I stop taking things literally and began to look at life from a metaphorical/spiritual perspective. I stop hating one particular group and started if anything, despising the god-form or energy that inspires evil – Set (the devil).
It is Set that wants us to hate each other based upon our external differences, because the Kamitic/Kemetic, Christian, Jewish and Islamic texts all say the same thing, which is that he is the author of confusion, disillusion and delusions. I favor the Kamitic teachings because it goes a little bit more in detail by revealing that Set is so evil that he cut up his brother’s body into numerous pieces; Thereby, clearly indicating that he is all about disunity.
Another reason I really favor the Kamitic/Kemetic teachings is because once you stop interpreting the concepts as being literal and began seeing the metaphorical truth, is when you realize that the Devil is REAL. He is inside you, because he is your ego. That’s right! We are our worst enemy! Not some red impish man running around on hooves and a pitchfork. No, it is an aspect within our lower self that we constantly allow to defeat us. This is the original meaning behind the physical world and all things carnal belonging to Set-an, but they missed the point because they interpreted it literally.
When we open up our metaphorical eye and see the TRUTH for what it is. We see the odd beauty is that God created our adversary, to oppose us so that we can become stronger. If we never had anything to oppose us, we wouldn’t appreciate our accomplishments nor strive for the ultimate fulfillment in life.
This understanding has helped me to appreciate all people. I have since then, had people from all walks help me and those closest to me have caused me the greatest harm. Why? Because I was looking at their externals and not the spirit who was guiding them. It is because of the Kamitic/Kemetic concepts and teachings, I can seriously say now, that I love everyone regardless of their race, ethnicity, nationality, affiliation and beliefs, but it is the Set (devil) within them that I don’t trust.
So, now what?
What are we supposed to do now that we know this? How can we use this information to our benefit and our spiritual empowerment, instead of as ammunition for an intellectual argument, which will only boost our ego and make matters worse? How can we help our people that have been blinded by the religiosity of Set’s dogma – all dogma that claims that there is only one way to connect to the Divine? How can we help our brothers and sisters who have turned their back on God (their own divinity) because of hypocrisy and corruption, and decided instead to go their own way with no assistance from any guide, except their own egotistical head?
It’s simple. We must show that even though the early Christian writers got it wrong and merged two concepts into one to create the story of Jesus, that in truth Osar and Jesus are the same. And, we do this through our daily living. We have to do this because it is the only way we can save our loved ones (both living and dead) who have been misled.
The cool thing is that, it is not hard. Yes, it is going to take a lot of work, but it is not hard because the same teachings that Jesus gave to his disciples apply to us all. It is still the TRUTH. Some of us often tell others to stop focusing on the man and pay attention to the message, but we are guilty of doing the same thing sometimes. But, if you read the red writing in the bible, there is nothing that Jesus says that is contrary to what Osar said to save his people. This is why, I imagine Osar telling his people the same thing thousands of years ago before Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed and Abraham were even born or thought of.
When we get hung up on this physical and fail to see Osar. We allow Set to win, because we can’t share the message. You think I am lying. Start talking about how something came from Kamit/Kemet and see how many people stick around. But you never mention anything about a, godhead and let it show by your actions. In other words, let your Osar reflect through you and watch how many people will be willing to listen to you. It works, because Osar didn’t have people come to his palace so that he could save them. He met them where they were at and on their level, so he could save them, because Osar loved his people. This is the same thing that Jesus taught and did.
This is why a true Hru according to Kamitic/Kemetic thinking is one that has lost everything but returned more vibrantly, vivaciously and victoriously than before. And, when Hru returns he brings with him his FATHER’S FUNK (POWER) from beyond the grave (in other words from the spiritual realm). That’s why he and she (I didn’t forget you ladies :) ) are considered heroes. Just think about…how many times Harriet Tubman risked her life to save others. How many times did other leaders put their life on the line for us. Think about how many times our own parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, great relatives, etc. did the same. Are you starting to see the connection between Osar and Jesus, and why we must be Hru?
So, we need to stop letting Set make a fool out of us. The MAA (TRUTH) has never changed, maybe the name but MAA has always been the same. I have found the MAA in the Bible, Talmud, heck I have found it in a science book, which means it has always been there. I just had some sunglasses on and couldn’t see it. So you see, it is we who must adapt and grow towards MAA. It is the only way to invoke the desired change that we want in life. If you follow your Ba/Spirit, it will not be difficult for you to decipher when the MAA is being presented to your awareness.
So, don’t let Set fool you into trading in one ball and chain of religious beliefs for another. And, stop letting him (your ego) control you. The time has come to take back what is ours. We need to stop getting upset about others using our sacred sciences in a profane (literal) manner and start celebrating our rebirth. If you overcame something that was a major and could have destroyed you. You need to celebrate and mark your victory over evil, your ego, Set.
We are at war and it has already been written. That the victors, the true heroes or Hru(s) of this war are the individuals that have a strong enough will to wear both crowns. The time has come for you to claim what’s yours.

In the past few days, I have had some people ask me why Kamitic/Kemetic shamanism? Well, before answering that question, it should be noted that…
…in 1972, a 50, 000 year-old-Neanderthal burial site was unearthed in Southern France by two French archeologists. The burial site, which became known as the Hortus site, contained the remains of a man wearing a leopard skin with claws and tails still intact, but no leopard bones were found in the grave. The only cultural comparisons the archeologists had on record, was that in other culture, tribal shamans were known to wear similar capes made from animal skins and be buried with ritual objects. The archeologists concluded that the man must have been a shaman. My question is how come the same conclusion is not drawn about the Kamitic/Kemetic (ancient Egyptians) priests and priestesses who were known to wear similar garments and be buried with ritual objects as well?
Could it be, that if the Kamitic/Kemetic priesthood were actually shamans, it would mean that Kamitic spirituality is at least 50,000 years-old or older?
Could it be, that by calling the Kamitic/Kemetic priesthood and society itself a shamanic culture, it would cause some to sympathize with traditional African people, the same way people did after it was realized globally what colonizers had done in degrading the culture of the Native Americans and indigenous Australians? Maybe?
Well, I tend to think the conspiracy is a little deeper than the above reasons because shamanism is not a religion. Shamanism is a time-tested, widespread, practical, healing, spiritual system that is not bound by any land, people, culture, language, etc. In other words, it is not bound by doctrine, dogma or a set of holy rules. It is a spiritual tradition that only those who have been called and have acknowledged the call can be shamans, but the tradition itself can be practiced by anyone. This would mean, that the reason the same conclusion was not reached about the Kamitic/Kemetic society being a shamanic culture is because if it were the case. People would realize that if the Kamitic people achieved greatness by tapping into their divinity without any religious order, they could achieve similar results. Therefore, it serves the religious few for people to believe that there is a need for organized religion.
I believe also if it were stated that the Kamitic/Kemetic people were a shamanic culture it would unite them with the rest of traditional Africa, who not only followed but continue to practice the custom of burying their dead with the last objects the individual used, which archeologists referred to as treasures. Here is a listing of the most common items buried with the dead. Many of these items you will find early African Americans of Kongo descent placed on their deceased loved one’s graves. Many of these practices are still practiced in the United States.
• Personal Belongings – It was customary for the most personal belongings of the deceased, such as their eating utensils, walking sticks, blankets, etc., to be buried with them. Favorite pieces of jewelry were bured with the dead, along with decorations from the home.
• Seashells - Seashells (especially white) are associated with the spirit world in many early African religions. They believed the world of the dead was connected to the living by the ocean or water.
• Broken Pottery - Pottery that belonged to the departed is often broken on top of their grave so their spirit would not come looking for them. Incorporate broken bottle pieces into your African funeral tribute. You could use some of your loved one’s items, or terracotta pots.
• Lamps/Fire - Oil lamps or bonfires were used in traditional African funerals because the light pointed the way to glory. Create a tribute around a central flame or flame bowl.
• Mirror Pieces – Mirror pieces and other shiny objects were often used in traditional African funerals. It was thought that their ancestral spirits could be seen in the reflection. Use mirror pieces, gold or other reflective pieces in your African funeral tribute.
So, the question, why Kamitic/Kemetic shamanism?
Well, besides the reasons given above, because shamanism is not a religion. It doesn’t require that you practice it once or twice a week. There is no obligation. It is not based upon theory but upon physical, tangible results. If it works you use it. If it doesn’t you don’t use it. It’s that Simple. There is no one forcing or goading you into doing something that you do not agree, believe or comprehend. You don’t mimic what other cultures have done nor do you have wear elaborate costumes. None of that is necessary because it is not about mimicking forms. At the same time it challenges you to live correctly by rewarding you when you do live according to Maa (balance/truth) because it focuses on spiritual content. When you do not live according to Maa, you don’t advance or achieve your goals. This isn’t a punishment from some Supreme Deity, it is simply the consequences of your actions and behaviors.
The interesting thing about shamanism is that all of the books in the world can help you but none of them will prepare you for this mystical journey. This is the problem with a lot of traditions. They have a set of recipes on how to do something based upon some old records or grimoires but they don’t have the discipline or the wisdom to carry it out. This is not the case in shamanistic practices because it is a spiritual healing practice based mainly upon trial and error. Where you acquire more divine power through your own self-discipline. Some people might not like this approach and prefer to be told the rules and the how-to’s. The advantage of not having any rules or “no regla” as it is called in Spanish, is that you work directly with your Spirits, which is easier in some ways because you are not following exact recipes.
So, this is some of the reasons why I follow the Kamitic/Kemetic shamanic path.
Hope that helps.
