Kamitic Magic and Christmas Spirits (OMG! Santa Claus is Real and other Christmas Traditions)

15 12 2014

Hetepu (Peace) Family

Greetings. In this holiday season I deemed it necessary to talk about something that we have all seen and for whatever reason aren’t benefiting from. Have you noticed how people around you get the things they want throughout life and it seems like they are just blessed or extremely lucky.  Well, it is because these people are unconsciously tapping into the true meaning of Christmas and we aren’t.  I don’t know about you, but I am tired of us not being blessed. So, let’s talk about this.

Now, before we begin, those of you who know me know that I very concerned about integrating and making spiritual traditions practical in our contemporary times.  Especially since Western science seemed to have become the main religion in our society today.

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

That being said, I am not going to talk about how the sun, moon and stars align to create the winter solstice.   I could tell you how Christmas signifies the birth of the Christian savior and how it was a concept borrowed from the Kamitic (Ancient Egyptians) but, I am not. I could tell you about how wrong it is for Christmas to be commercialized and how Santa Claus is not real blah, blah, blah. NO. I am not talking about any of that, so if you are looking for me to criticize and blast others. Sorry, not today, we have more important work to do. This post is for those with children who are struggling to keep them on the path of righteousness in the midst of the greatest illusions of the year.

black-santa-claus

Yes. All of these things are true – winter solstice, the origins of Christmas, etc. – but what does it have to do with you and your family? I haven’t met, read or heard any “spiritual” person saying, “Ah Yeah! Winter Solstice Was On Blast. I got _______!” In fact, what I have noticed is that the poorest people on the planet are usually so-called spiritual people.

Now, I am not saying this has happens or that there aren’t people benefiting from this sharing season, but for the vast spiritual majority, they don’t understand how to tap into this energy so they miss the opportunity to advance from it. Based upon my experience, I have concluded that most people miss it because of two reasons:

1.  They miss it because they have no spiritual cosmology, so they continue to separate the physical from the spiritual and fail to see that the two realms are intertwined. See, it takes spiritual energy to get physical things. When most people asked what they really want they will say, “I want to be more spiritual” and when most people say this what they really want is more self-discipline. The thing is when people ask to be more spiritual, what they get is more adversity because the Spirit doesn’t distinguish good and bad.  The Spirit only knows that adversity will force you to become more discipline. I did the same thing once upon a time. One time this season came around and I asked to be more spiritual.  Shortly after Spirit said, “Voila! Take this troubled individual (in your life) with no money, and I will take away your job, other sources of income for you. And, now you can be more spiritual (focused).” Yeah, I was homeless for a while for that and I will more focused, but I will never ask to be more spiritual ever again. It is better to ask for what you want because in order to get what you want you have to focus your mind/spirit anyway, which is the whole point. For instance, if you want a better job, improved finances, a new car, etc. in order to get it you have to focus your energies to getting that and that whole process will make you more spiritual. We have to abandon this Western religious (and Eastern thought) concept that we either have to be spiritual or secular (physical/material). Kamitic spirituality like most indigenous spiritual systems is about balance (Maa). We need the physical and spiritual, the good and the bad, etc. to survive and part of our purpose of being on this earth is to learn how to be a Man and Woman of God by living between both realities.

Hru and Set - Fighting the Devil Within

Hru and Set – Fighting the Devil Within

2. The second reason people don’t prosper during this time, (which also ties into not having a cosmology) is because they are too damn spiritual. They basically end up confused.  Their head is so up in the stars and wrapped around metaphysics that you literally have to pull these people down by their knees and not the ankles. Simply because they forgot that they are here to have an earthly experience, which means you need physical things in order to physically survive. As the Christian saying goes, “Don’t be so heavenly minded that you aren’t any worldly good.”  Again, I understand why this occurs because most of us raised in the West were taught by people who believed according to Col. 3:2 that we should, “Set your mind on things above, not on the things that are on earth.” The problem is that earthly things have always been misinterpreted by Christian leaders who believed that if things aren’t heavenly they are evil, hence the misquoted and erroneous belief, “that money is the root of all evil.”  The true understanding of the scripture was that you are supposed to keep your mind focused on the heavenly things.  Meaning, don’t connive and scheme on getting physical things but let the Spirit guide you to obtaining the things you want. That’s the purpose of magic and miracles in the first place, to let the Spirit guide you.

Since most of these religious practices we learned when we were children, and they were based upon superstitions because any time you have a tradition with no understanding of the spiritual science, it becomes profane.  It is hard for many of us to break from these beliefs and practice because they are firmly impressed upon our subconscious.  It is not impossible because the wonderful thing is that we can always learn something new by replacing outdated info with new learnings. So, let’s get real and let me tell you how I made the transition in order to tap into true meaning of Christmas.

osar

First, Christmas is the Christian version of the Kamitic holiday Hed Sed or Sed Day. Sed Day was created by the Kamitic sages to signify the symbolic victory of knowledge over ignorance, hope over despair, new over the old, good over evil, symbolized as the rebirth of Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek) through his heir Hru (Horus in Greek).

According to Kamitic legend, Osar united the Kamitic people by teaching them law and the science of agriculture, thus making his kingdom a very prosperous land. All loved Osar except for his youngest brother Set, who became so envious of Osar, that he held a banquet for the beloved king and murdered him, thereby separating the once united kingdom and usurping the throne. Fortunately, due to Osar’s righteousness and his devoted wife Oset, Osar was reborn through his heir Hru, who later challenged and defeated his evil uncle Set, and returned Osar’s rule to the throne.

Hru Osar and Set

Hru Osar and Set

The Kamitic people depicted this concept of life over death or good over evil by symbolizing Osar’s life as the moon during the month of regeneration Keehek (December). It was from this concept the tradition was born to celebrate the figurative death of the reigning king’s authority, which occurred 28 days after November 27 – the Last Supper (or Banquet) for Osar hosted by his younger brother Set and, his rebirth, which occurred around December 25th.  This is where the origin of the old adages, “the king is not dead!”, “Long live the king!”, “Out with the old and in with the New!” and “The righteous will receive their justly reward!”

Maa Aankh & Seasons

As you can see, the months of regeneration correspond to the Amun Ra moment on the Maa Aankh cosmogram. Therefore, when you put this in perspective you can clearly see how it all ties into Christmas because we’re dealing with Amun Ra (the Hidden Ra) or Energy associated with rebirth and renewal. That means “News Flash! Santa Claus is Real.” No there is no fat jolly man flying around on a sleigh being pulled by magical reindeers, forcing himself down a chimney to give you gifts. There is a fat, jolly Spirit that will give you gifts if you are loyal to his kingly and righteous cause. Does it make sense now why Santa only rewards those who have been good little children? Does it make sense now, why Santa’s colors are the same as Hru, the son of Osar?

Osar from Maa Ankh 2

Osar (the Ruler over the Higher Self)

So, you see if you want to truly celebrate and benefit from this energetic period of the year. You need to celebrate your triumph over ignorance, despair and evil by marking your king’s joyous return based upon your beliefs and understanding.  Keep in mind that your (Higher) Spirit does not distinguish between right and wrong, good and bad, past and future or any other manmade concepts meant to help us to understand the physical universe. It according to the Laws of Maa, which are the laws of the Spirit, only concerns itself with what you focus on in the present.

But in order to do this we need to understand who or what does Osar, Set and Hru symbolize.  Also, we need to understand the metaphysical understanding behind the Christmas symbolism.

Personally I recognize Osar as my higher self and the higher self that dwells in all of humanity (known and unknown). My understanding of my Higher Self or Higher Spirit is that it is the bomb! Since the Higher Self dwells in us all, it logically is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. When I was much younger, silly and immature, I use to spend a lot of time trying to understand how the (Higher) Spirit is able to make things occur based upon synchronicity but I don’t anymore and I am just glad that it does. Since that time, I have time and time again put requests out and seen my Osar mysteriously deliver what I need.

This means that the forces that try to suppress this knowledge, my ancestral heritage and my connection with my Osar that we call ignorance, selfishness, hatred, poverty, etc. are the energies of our lower self or ego, which is called Set.

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

Set (the Ego Self and Ruler over the Lower Self)

Are you starting to see the picture? Do you see how Set (our egos) kill and try to separate our Osar?

A

 Therefore, the Christmas tree is depending upon your Kamitic tradition is the Tree of Life or Paut Netcharu (Paut Neteru)– that is all of the so-called divinities that aligned themselves with your Hru and fight for your Osar.  From another perspective all of the lights and things on the Christmas tree are your chakras spinning harmoniously to support the Crown chakra. Yes, the little twinkling star or the angel on top of the Christmas tree is your Higher Self or Osar. So, all of the gifts under the tree are the blessings you received and will receive from working your (Higher) Spirit. I meant to add that the lights also refer to star Sirius and this ties in the whole 3 Kings Day or Tres Reyes Magos, which is practiced in Puerto Rico and parts of Latin America. The point is that we have to find what resonates with us and use it to build upon for our spiritual purposes and to keep our children interested in our own tradition. Remember, it is not about if Jesus or Santa Claus were real people or not. For that matter it is not known if Osar, Hru or Set were real either, but the concept and principle is what matters and that’s what makes it real.

That being said, instead of three kings we can say that it was Npu (Anubis, Sebek, etc.) whose sacred number is 3 as well, guided and protected the virgin Oset in order to give birth to HrupaKhart or the Infant Child Hru.

Npu (Anubis) - The Opener of the Way

Npu (Anubis) – The Opener of the Way

Therefore, you want to leave treats for Npu just like you would leave treats for Santa. Again, if you harbor on the notion that Jesus is not real, you are missing the point because it is not about if they are real or not. Remember, this is about Divine Energy, which does not discriminate based upon good or bad, ethnicity, right or wrong, etc. We have to think of this Energy as being like electricity, which means you can either sit around in the “dark” and complain (pun intended) or plug into it and turn on your lights (pun intended).

HrupaKhart or the Child Hru and the Infant Jesus

HrupaKhart or the Child Hru and the Infant Jesus

As you can see, the good news or point of the whole celebration is that Osar still reigns through you and me as Hru, who symbolizes our conscious decisions to trust, believe and willfully act towards the goal of triumphing over Set (ignorance, selfishness, hatred, poverty, etc. and other traits of the ego-self).

So, how do we do it?

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Well, besides the suggestions mentioned above, one of the things that the holiday tradition got right is that this holiday season is about sharing and this is what brings about Osar’s return. Sharing in the Kamitic tradition is an attribute and virtue of the netchar Maat, who is the personification of Maa or Divine Justice, Divine Law and Divine Truth. Think about it. Ever notice how some of the orneriest people share and give things during this season and they still remain on top. This is why. It is very hard to go against the energy that is sweeping the globe.

The trick is though, it is about unconditional love. That means sharing and expecting nothing in return. Sounds hard to do but it really isn’t. Just the other day, I went to the store got some deserts for $3 and gave it to my neighbors who were very appreciative of it. I don’t expect them to go out and by me something but in that little simple act, I just made an ally for Osar and struck blow against Set. Who knows, one day my neighbor may see something suspicious going around my house while I am not there and decide to call the police or scare off the intruder. Do you see it?  That’s how Osar works. It is synchronicity that the untrained would call magic.

That means don’t go out and buy some real expensive stuff with the hope that you will get a nice gift in return. That’s doing it for the wrong reason. If you don’t get anything in return, good just know that the blessing is come from another avenue and hasn’t physically manifested yet. By the way, the Christmas tree symbolizes blessings descending from your Higher Self, your guardian angel or Osar and manifesting physically as presents. So, you don’t get a gift great, it means it is not here yet but it is coming.

milk&cookies for Santa

We have to remember that we are dealing with energy and energy in invisible but when it manifests itself physically it becomes physical matter and action. This is why children were taught to bribe Santa with some cookies and milk to sweeten the energy. When you understand that spirits are energy and they don’t physically consume food but absorb the essence. The thought of seeing cookies and milk changes how people feel, hence changes their energy. Again, if you don’t feel comfortable putting milk and cookies out for Santa, offer the cookies and milk or actually candies, rum, cigars, etc. to Npu (the Kamitic Ellegua), while asking for his protection this year. This is what brings on the jolly energy of St. Nick. That’s right Family, we need to reclaim our magic and magic is not based upon the intellect but on the Spirit.

Traditions

January 6 is the celebration of the Epiphany or Three Kings Day, where before going to sleep, children leave grass and water for the kings’ camels, instead of milk and cookies. In some countries like Cuba and Spain it is placed inside of shoes. In return candies are put inside of the shoes instead of stocking stuffers. http://carmensluxurytravel.com/2014/01/three-kings-day/

So there are numerous ways to tap into this energy to get the things you want to improve your life. This January 6, I will be setting out a special offering for my Npu based upon the Story of Osar, since Npu protected Oset and the Child Hru, to recreate a tradition for my own children, thus building pride in our cultural ways. That means that the Eve of January 5th, would be a good day to have a party for the arrival of Hru instead of a Christmas Eve party.  Does that make sense? Remember, spirituality is not all based upon the intellect but about subconscious emotional programming, which is tied to our childhood. Many understand this which is why they are able to use this spiritual science for negative and often destructive purposes.  It is our responsibility to rescue it and show others how to use it correctly, so that we can heal ourselves and our community. After all, this is way to actually spread peace on earth.

Hope that helps.

Be careful this holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you all next year. Happy Holidays.





How Does Your Coffin Look? (What is the Object of Your Imprisonment?)

21 09 2014

Hetepu Family.

Have you ever wondered how Africans were enslaved? I mean Family I have looked at this from every perspective, but I think I finally figured it out after so many years of study and contemplation. But, before sharing with you my theory, let’s take a trip down my religious memory lane.

Preachers

Now, when I was a kid around 13 years of age and first becoming aware, that’s when I started having some strong opposition against the church. This was partly due to the rising crack cocaine violence occurring in the streets of Detroit, but not happening Dearborn, Southfield, Bloomfield, Royal Park and other nearby suburban communities, which made me ask, “Why is this happening to us?”

jesus_fish

When I asked the ministers at my church, I remembered being taught that Jesus saved us all when he died on the cross for our sins. When I asked how did we become sinned in the first place and I was told about Adam and Eve’s fall, and how we were not God’s “Chosen People” but Gentiles. Not knowing a lot about history, biblical history or anything about Jewish people at that time.  “Chosen People” in my young mind meant non-black and brown people, and Gentiles meant black and brown skinned.

To escape the onslaught occurring in Detroit, the thought came to mind that I needed to be saved, but when I gave myself Jesus he didn’t accept me, at least not for long. My faith was not strong enough because I couldn’t just accept that I was meant to be a pawn in some Divine scheme, so I left the church and began reading about the ancient Egyptians.

Kamitic Ethics

Kamitic Ethics

The ancient Egyptians fascinated me as a kid despite the popular belief that they were idol worshippers and the so-called enslavers of the Children of Israel or God’s Chosen People.  It was something about them that attracted me to them, and now when I look at it, it was because they were also considered to be Gentiles in my young mind.

sphinx_3902918

 

To me this meant that out of all of the biblical civilizations, while the “Chosen People” wandered from dessert to dessert.  These pagan idol worshiping Gentiles called the ancient Egyptians stood as the greatest nation of all during this time.  It was at that moment I realized that there was more to meet the eye about the ancient Egyptians and that they probably were not idol worshippers as everyone had claimed in Sunday school.

That’s when I received divine instructions to study everything I could about the ancient Egyptians.  Twenty or so years later, I discovered the Maa Aankh and that’s when I realize that the reason I was given that instruction was to rid or reprogram my mind with constructive and positive images about ancestry. Since that time, thanks to history and metaphysics, I learned that there is no such thing as a “Chosen People.” Every race of human beings believe he or she is “chosen” because one of the faults of being human is our ego, but the Divine does not pick and choose or play favorites. As I have said before, the same air fills my lungs just like it does my enemy’s, which means God doesn’t put anyone on a pedestal. In God’s sight, we are all the same.

Therefore, this “Chosen People” idea is a manmade conception.

So how did the descendants of Kamit become slaves?

slavedealer

Well, with a better self-image and a better understanding of history, I began to read and study how the Transatlantic Slave Trade began.  I remembered hearing that the Africans were forced into Christianity but after careful study, I found that this was a myth.

FORCED

Kongo Christian Art

The truth is that when the first Europeans stepped foot on the West African Coast, the first people they encountered were the BaKongo people.  The relationship and history between the BaKongo and Portuguese is similar to the relationship that occurred across the Atlantic between the various Amerindians and other European colonizers and settlers. Initially it began with the BaKongo people at first noticing the different physical traits and strange customs of the foreigners and gradually evolving to marveling at the foreigners advance technology. It can be said that it begins first with fear, followed by wonder.  The BaKongo like many Native Americans were simply amazed by the Europeans gunfire, which was a technology they did not possess. As soon as they began to admire the Europeans’ weapons, they began to admire other things brought from Europe including religion. Even though most people believe that Africans were forced into Christianity, the truth is that the BaKongo people willingly converted to this new faith, just like a number of Native Americans had done. It all began with the envious desire to possess European weaponry to defeat one’s enemy.

If we look at this from a superficial perspective we will be led to believe that slavery began over the use of guns, but that is only a piece of the puzzle. Yes, eventually it led to the trade of ivory, gold, sugar, cotton and of course people, which means money, but those are still pieces of the puzzle.

I beat my head trying to figure this out, until I remembered the Story of Osar, and in the Story I was reminded that after Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek) came into power his envious youngest brother Set killed him and usurped the throne. How did Set kill his wise and powerful brother? He dangled in front of him a beautifully decorated chest, which became the model chest used in all royal funerary rites in ancient Egypt.  It was an elaborate empty chest – meaning it had no real power – which everyone desired.

 coffin

That’s right. It is the allusion and illusion of power.

Osar was already powerful and could have easily made the chest himself, but he fell for Set’s trick because of the allusion of power the chest represented, which is the ability to cheat fate.

I hope you see that Set has numerous elaborated chests.  In pre-imperial and pre-colonial times, Set’s elaborated chest was the European gun.  In another period, Set’s elaborated chest was religion.  Today due to social media, it is fame and money, and doing what is “good” or “right” in order to receive social acceptance.  In other words, Set’s chest is anything that you think will quickly give you peace, prosperity, power, love, success, etc.  Anything that leads you to compromise your principles at the risk of harming yourself and others is an elaborate and beautifully decorated coffin created by your ego.  There is only one way to get peace, prosperity, power, love, success, etc. No one and no thing can give it to you because they are ethereal.  The only way to get these attributes is to within.

Hope that helps.

Practicing the Maa Aankh (Kamitic Righteous Living)

20 09 2014

Hetepu (Peace) Family.

You know, since the conception and creation of the Maa Aankh, I have found this simple yet complex diagram to be remarkably beautiful and powerful in its ability to guide me to more profound truths. First, the Maa Aankh cosmogram is based upon the surviving Bantu-Kongo philosophies that were brought to North America via the slave trade and syncretized with Pentecostal Christianity, which has been combined with Kamitic (Ancient Egyptian) and traditional Kongo philosophy in order to restore one back to his or her glory.

Kongo Yowa Cross

Kongo Yowa Cross

 

You see, I learned contrary to popular belief, that early African Americans did not lose all of their cultural practices as initially thought. It appears this way only because a substantial amount of African American culture (language, beliefs, foods, etc.) has been absorbed by the greater and dominant American society.

Colonoware

Kongo Cross on Colonoware

 

Archaeological artifacts and historical documentation reveals that a substantial amount of African American culture survived the enslavement period primarily because of the Bantu-Kongo cosmogram known as the Dikenga, Yowa or Kongo Cross.

Kongo Cross used for Ventilation during Underground Railroad

This is the reason generally speaking African Americans unconsciously continue to engage in similar cultural practice that have been found throughout the Afro-diaspora (especially in regards to honoring the dead), despite not having any knowledge of other African and African derived traditions.

libations

 This is because what I discovered was that early African Americans did not lose their culture. Instead what early African Americans loss was their cultural philosophy and theology, which is the indigenous, traditional or ancestral explanation that explains the purpose behind the cultural practice. To compensate for this loss and combat the cruelty of slavery, early African Americans adopted and borrowed concepts from Protestant Christianity.  Today however, the concepts of Christianity have outlived their purpose which explains why the number of churches and temples within in our steadily declining communities, is steadily rising, but none of the problems that exist are being solved. (Hence, “Everyone believes they are called to be a preacher or some other religious leader.” In truth they are just ego-tripping.) As a result, this has inspired many (myself included) to search for an unadulterated cultural philosophy.

Portuguese ship

Unfortunately, when I tried to research the traditional philosophy of the Bantu-Kongo, I discovered that because the Kongo- Angolan region was the first to encounter the Europeans.  They were also the most devastated by the Transaltantic Slave trade, imperialism and civil discord, which meant that most of the traditional Bantu-Kongo philosophies was lost (especially with the passing of the great Kongo scholar Dr. Kimbwandende Kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau).

amun

Thankfully, the Kamitic (Ancient Egyptian) Amun Ra tradition had similar beliefs as the Bantu-Kongo.

WhoAmI?

So when I combined the Kamitic beliefs with the existing Kongo Cross information that survived in North America; through channeling it led to the creation of the Maa Aankh.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

The Maa Aankh like most sacred cosmograms or medicine wheels found around the world, can be interpreted a number of ways depending upon how you use it. The following are some of the most common interpretations:

From a personal perspective, since the Kamitic word “Maa” meaning balance, order, righteousness and truth, and “Aankh” means life or to swear an oath. The Maa Aankh can be translated as “To swear an oath to live truth” or “Righteous Living.” From a group or tribal perspective the Maa Aankh could be interpreted to mean the “Order of Life” or “Holistic Living.”

These different interpretations are all based upon the basic understanding of the Maa Aankh, which consists of land above and the land below symbolizing Earth surrounded by four discs.  These discs symbolize the four moments of the sun described in KiKongo as – Sunrise (Kala – Black), Midday (Tukula – Red), Sunset (Luvemba – White) and Midnight (Musoni – Yellow, when the sun is believed to be shinning on the other side). The four solar discs also symbolize man and woman’s soul and correspond exactly to the Kamitic Amun Ra divinities birth – Khepera (Creative Ra or Creative Power), life – Ra (Authoritative Ra or Overseeing Power), death – Ra Atum (Complete Ra or simply the Power of Revolution) and rebirth – Amun Ra (Hidden Ra or Hidden Power).

amunt

Amun Ra

Thereby indicating that the Kamitic gods are not gods at all but are abstract concepts and attributes of God describing the evolution of one’s soul and consciousness.

maa aank2014b

From a metaphorical perspective the Maa Aankh provides deeper insight into the Kamitic Story of Osar when the land above is symbolized as TASETT – the Red Lands or Lower Kamit ruled by Set, and the land below is symbolized as KAMTA – the Black Lands or Upper Kamit ruled by Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek). According to legend Osar came into power when humanity was at its lowest, but he managed to uplift his people by teaching them Maa. All loved Osar but his youngest brother Set had grown increasingly jealous of Osar and eventually killed him.  Thanks to the loving devotion of Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis in Greek), Osar’s beloved wife, Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus in Greek) the heir of Osar was born, who after surviving many attempts on his life as a child. Hru grew to adulthood but after being visited in his dream by his deceased father Osar who instructed him to avenge his wrongful death. Hru challenged his evil uncle for the throne. Finally after numerous battles and litigation, Hru finally defeated his uncle and united the kingdom.  This is why he rests in the center of the Maa Aankh, wearing both crowns, indicating that everything extends and everything returns.

Again metaphorically speaking, the Story of Osar can be interpreted a number of ways. Consequently, some see the story as a metaphorical retelling of historical events, while some others may interpret it as a prophecy.  In either case, because the Story is a great story, no interpretation is incorrect because each interpretation communicates a deeper truth about the fight between good and evil.

Hru Osar and Set

Hru Osar and Set

However, metaphysically speaking which means going beyond the physical.  When TASETT is used to symbolize our subconscious self or the division of our being that functions on autopilot in our daily visible life, while KAMTA (since black also refers to invisible) is is used to symbolize our superconscious self or the intuitive part of our being, and Hru is conscious self.  The Story of Osar due to the Maa Aankh takes on a more profound meaning. It indicates that since Osar is the ruler of KAMTA or our intuitive superconscious memories (ancestors, spirit guides, angels, spiritual energies, hidden forces, etc.) and Set is the ruler of TASETT or our habitual, personal subconscious memories (all the conditionings, habits and learnings we have acquired in this present life time, etc.).  In other words, it is the conscious use of our subconscious that leads to our divine awakening.

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

Osar as Lord of KAMTA (the Black Lands)

The Story of Osar therefore becomes an allegory about the constant daily fight we all must undergo between our higher, superconscious, divine self and our lower, subconscious, ego self. Meaning our salvation or spirituality is all about learning how to surrender control to our higher spirit, higher self or Osar, instead of being controlled by our lower spirit, lower self, ego or Set.

The Maa Aankh from this perspective is a visual reminder what all the great sages of humanity have told us since the time of immemorial, that the Kingdom of God is found within. In other words, peace, happiness, prosperity and power are all ethereal concepts, which mean they can’t be found externally. These attributes can only be found within by looking beyond the physical. In other words, the only one who can save you is yourself and as soon you realize this, is when you will be free.

Hope that helps.

I Am Divine, No Need to Be Black Enough!

30 08 2014

Hetepu (Peace) Family.

I have tried to avoid posting this dialogue for some time now, but after watching a documentary, seeing a disturbing incident and having similar experiences, I had to say something. As most of you know, I am the eldest son to a Pentecostal preacher. My mother was the first in her family to get her high school diploma, bachelors and master’s degree in teaching. After my father supported my mother in getting her degrees, he went to school and got his college degree. Both of my parents are college educated because they came from parents and grandparents who didn’t have an education, but understood that it was essential in order to make it in this society, they needed an education. Consequently, I have a college degree and one of my brothers has a degree. Not only that, most of my extended family, close friends and associates also have a degree, which is reflective of two popular ideas that stems from post slavery.

W.E.B.DuBois

W.E.B.DuBois

One was from W.E.B. DuBois and the other was from Booker T. Washington. Both of these men were brilliant, but their brilliance is constantly overshadowed because Booker T. Washington inspired Marcus Garvey’s movement, which to date was the most successful African American movement in the history of the country and Afro-Diaspora.  Because DuBois’ ceased agreeing with Garvey and both attacked each other in the media (DuBois for the NAACP and Garvey for the UNIA), DuBois was painted as being a sellout, which has indirectly branded just about any Black man or woman that gets an education and works for some major organization outside of the community, as a sellout as well.

Marcus Garvey

Marcus Garvey

It’s not stressed that DuBois was the first African American to graduate from Harvard, the leaders of an African American activist group that advocated civil rights, who was also an advocate of Pan Africanism. What most people know about him is that he was one of the founders of the NAACP and believed to be a conspirator to Garvey’s demise.

Was DuBois a sellout? Is anyone that gets a college education a sellout? Hell, for that matter, is Barack Obama a sellout or a house Negro?

Ok. Before we answer that let me share this story with you. I use to work at this job in the oilfield and there was this kid who just got hired. Now, he knew when he got hired that they required him to be on call, because he worked at a similar place of employment. So, the job would call the entire crew about two to three hours prior before the job.  Now, this kid on several occasions when called was late getting to the work site. Finally, the manager decided he had enough and called him and fired him.  In the midst of him being fired, this kid yells out for me to save him from getting fired and when I refused. He called me a “Sellout.”

Okay. What was it that I did that resulted in me being called a sellout? Did I do anything wrong? Should I have jeopardized my employment, me putting food on the table for my loved ones, etc. for him? Would this kid have done the same for me? If I lost my job, would this kid come to my home and shell out some cash for me to put food on my table for my family and provide a roof over their head?

No. I don’t think so.

Let’s revisit the scenario. This kid knew ahead of time that he was going to be on-call. Why was he late arriving to several jobsites is not important. The fact is that he was not RESPONSIBLE period.  I was called out as being a sellout because I was RESPONSIBLE and taking care of my business.

Now, that United States has their first African American president, we have seen an increase in African Americans in the media, but we can all agree.  They haven’t been the most positive images. Well, several decades ago, there was a few actors that tried to address this issue. Do you remember him? His name is Bill Cosby. Cosby was a well-known comedian and actor who had traveled all over the world, so when he created the Cosby show, he knew that this was the image that would be broadcast all over the planet.

The Cosby Show

The Cosby Show

What happened? Cosby’s show after numerous seasons was canceled because “It wasn’t Black Enough!” What was the complaint that many of us said, “No one in our community lives like this, with a father that works as a doctor and a mother as a lawyer.” We claimed that it wasn’t “Real.”

Tyler Perry

Now, I must admit that I appreciate what Tyler Perry has done in regards to building his studios, creating jobs and everything, but it is another example of someone not looking at the whole picture. You and I know that the Madea and Brown from Meet the Browns, image is not the norm, but people who don’t live in our community around the world, don’t know this. And my God! If they have an all day marathon, imagine these images being shown for 24 hours what an individual would think? The crazy thing is that I have actually had some white people ask me if certain things that were done in his movies were true.  Again, this doesn’t make Perry a bad guy.  He is fulfilling his dream and doing what he was destined to do, which was to make films from his perspective.   He has done a good job at it and has a knack for story writing, after all he made “Daddy’s Little Girls” followed by “Dairy of a Mad Black Women,” which I think were his best films ever.  So, there’s nothing wrong with what he is doing. The Divine within me helps me to see that Perry just isn’t seeing the whole picture and doesn’t see how certain images affect the greater whole, and that’s when someone with a better script is supposed to come into the picture.

Now, let’s return back to the DuBois and Garvey scenario. DuBois came from a much different background than Garvey, which is the reason he saw life for his people differently. This did not make him a bad man because he had a different perspective. He was just a man that had a different perspective than Garvey and saw things differently.  In fact, when DuBois proposed his Talented Tenth theory, what he was saying was that he understood that not every African American was going to be able to go to college, but those who did manage to do so were the ones that would help the remaining 90%.  But, what happens all too often, because of our warped ideas of what we should be (in someone else’s image) combined with our lack of knowledge of our history, and narrow perspective of the world. When our loved ones get a higher education, we ostracized them, tear them down and ridicule them for thinking outside of the box. This is what happened to DuBois.

As a matter of fact, did you know that one of the ideas that Garvey supported was that Africa be ruled by African Americans, which prompted DuBois to declare that Garvey was reckless.  Not only that, did you know that part of the problems that occurred in Liberia, Africa were due to migrating African Americans imposing their American ways on the indigenous Liberians? This is the reason DuBois was against this concept in the first place. Understand that I am not saying that Garvey was a bad man, because he surely was not. At the time, he was rash and rough around the edges.  Not a bad guy but I think that he didn’t see the whole picture and most of us are missing it too, we will keep getting stuck on superficiality and refuse to see each other’s divinity.

When we look at both DuBois and Garvey objectively, it can be said that DuBois wanted all black people to take responsibility for their own wellbeing.  Garvey on the other hand was about nation building, which focused on centering or focusing upon a leader. Both philosophies were needed, neither was better than the other. One however was able to outlive the other because it was well planned and organized, while the other fell apart, inspired other groups, which had the same results.  I wish both of these men would have had a chance to collaborate before their death, because it would have been phenomenal, but one of the points that I am making and hope you can see is that there is a difference between thinking and doing.  In other words, there is a difference between being proactive and reactive.  Our enemy fears us realizing the difference.

malcolm-martin

 We see the same problem played out between Malcolm X and Martin L. King Jr., both were two different men that had different perspectives on how to reach a similar goal.  But, the man most identify with is Malcolm because we love his direct, brash; I don’t give a damn approach over Martin’s alleged passive approach. This is why in earlier recordings Malcolm called these individuals approaching the situation as such “house Negroes.”

Malcolm X and Shirley Graham DuBois, wife of W.E.B. DuBois and Director of Ghana National Television, at her villa in Accra, Ghana during Malcolm's visit in May 1964. DuBois had thrown a reception in his honor.

Malcolm X and Shirley Graham DuBois, wife of W.E.B. DuBois and Director of Ghana National Television, at her villa in Accra, Ghana during Malcolm’s visit in May 1964. DuBois had thrown a reception in his honor.

What people don’t understand is that Martin was a brilliant revolutionary that looked beyond the superficial.  Martin understood that no matter how much black people in the 1960s wanted to have an arm revolution; it was not possible because of various factors. For instance, where would the elderly, women and children live while people were fighting? Who was going to supply the money for food, ammunition, etc.? This is why Martin didn’t agree with everything Malcolm was saying and for this reason Martin was branded as being a “sellout” or “House Negro” initially.

malcolm_x_with_castro

Malcolm & Fidel

Malcolm didn’t understand this in the beginning, but when it finally dawned on him.  All of a sudden you find him visiting world leaders. Question, where do you think he got that idea from? I am not suggesting that he got it from King but, I am suggesting that he finally came to his full senses with the help from fellow intellectuals.

220px-Josiah_Henson_bw

Josiah Henson the Real Uncle Tom

What we need to understand is that everything is not as it appears.  We fail to realize that racism has been so apparent in our lives that it has affected even how we perceive one another. We call everyone that doesn’t live in the hood, talk the way we talk, dress the way dress, etc. an Uncle Tom, without realizing that this was a fictional character meant to further sabotage our efforts. If would spend time investigating our own rich heritage we would learn that Uncle Tom’s Cabin was written by Harriet Beecher Stowe, who was inspired by the former slave Josiah Henson who fled into Canada and started his own community to help other former slaves. This means that the real Uncle Tom was a revolutionary that made sacrifices to build and develop their own.  Just like Uncle Tom is a fictional character, the so-called idea of blackness is a fictional idea as well that was created to prevent us from progressing.  This is why I have seen Somalian men come over to this country, strive to rebuild their lives by getting jobs and an education, then all of a sudden start sagging their pants for respect and credibility. Not only that, today we have young people deliberately “dumbing” down their intelligence to appear stupid because they got the idea that to be smart is not cool and not “black”.

This stupid idea of blackness is causing us to exclude our own throughout the Afro-Diaspora (particularly those in Latin America), just because they didn’t grow up in the United States. Assata knew that blackness was silly, which is why she is dwelling in Cuba to this day.

Assata_Shakur

Assata Shakur

We need to learn and teach each other to see one another’s divinity, so that we help each other grow. The 1960s and 1970s was a powerful time and the reason we all keep referring to it is because that’s when everything changed from the better to the worse. Most of the progress that was made even in those bad times was due to Harlem Renaissance era, which occurred prior. During that time we had numerous intellectuals and that’s when the attacks began because we were focused on us. Some of the people during the 1960s and early 1970s remember those glorious times because we didn’t control all of our community. We did control a lot of it because we respected who we were regardless of status and education.

It was about intellect and muscle, and that same attitude existed in the 1970s.  For instance, when Assata Shakur was rescued and exiled to Cuba, it was a collaborative effort on several parts. I heard the story several times from my late history instructor Imari Obadele (born Richard Bullock Henry May 2, 1930 – January 18, 2010), the former president of the Republic of New Africa and strong advocate of reparations, who was wrongly imprisoned himself, but was freed after serving five years thanks to the help of Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit politician, and Amnesty International.

We need to get rid of the idea of blackness and replace it with Divineness. I do not believe that there are people in this world that hates their own kind. That’s contradicts the laws of nature. I do believe that there are people in this world that have different perspectives due to different cognizance and a lack of knowledge. This is the reason, every time we base our decisions on this superficial quality, we get played because the other party goes through this song and dance, of trying to prove how “black” they are. Clinton did it and Obama did it.

Barack and Bill 818_0

If people would have focused on one another’s divinity, they would have avoided being tricked and saw through the individual’s real intentions.  For instance, if they would have looked at President Obama as just another man with a divine spark, instead of as a black man, they could have avoided seeing him as a savior that so many people perceived him as being. And instead, saw him as another politician. Now to be honest with you, this is not to say that I was not happy that he won the election because I like comedian Chris Rock mentioned. It meant that I could stop saying that stupid mantra, “You can be anything you want. Even the president of the United States,” but I didn’t expect anything drastic to happen as a result of him becoming the president either.  Because he is a politician and politicians, politic for money.  That’s politics, so stop being angry at him for being a politician and get angry at yourself for allowing yourself to get duped, again. Obama is doing his job and that is to be a politician. He fulfilled part of his destiny, so calling him a sellout is just like the kid who called me a sellout.

We have to stop putting our faith in other people and start putting our faith in ourselves. If you have in your heart to go in one direction and you come across another who claims to do the same, you will know because it will show in their actions. When you focus on your divinity and see the divine within them, you see what they are all about because they can’t hide it. You will always know a bird by the way it poops.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

I had to see the divine when the young kid called me a sellout.  It was hurtful only because I couldn’t reveal to him that I was a Spook Who Sat By the Door, striving to improve not only my own but his as well. If he had only been responsible and did his part.  Who knows what we could have accomplished together. I was only able to forgive him because I understood that he was young and like most young people who are rash, doesn’t think.  The youth corresponds to the Ra moment on the Maa Aankh, which if not managed correctly would lead to one’s demise because they are always acting or reacting and not thinking before they act.

MV5BMTQxMzI0MTk4M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzYxNTUyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR6,0,214,317_AL_

 We need to appreciate one another regardless of what level of consciousness we are on and see the role it plays in our own development. It is not meant for us all to travel the same path and have the same experience, because we all have different purposes.  I have said it before and I will say it again, that if you read about Malcolm’s childhood, you would know that there was no way he was going to become a Christian. It was going to take a miracle for that to happen, and it was only because Master Fard appeared to him miraculously that he found Allah (God) in the first place, and became the great man that we know today. Just because someone doesn’t take the same path in life as you did doesn’t make them of less important. This is a trick from the enemy. Nothing happens by coincidence, everything happens for a reason but if you no plan, you don’t take no responsibility for your life and just wait for someone to save you.  You will never succeed or achieve anything in life. We need to understand that we each play a role in our growth and development, which means you have to do your part.

You never know that that kid you insulted for walking upright might be the lawyer to save your behind from being incarcerated, or that guy you see as street thug may actually be a community organizer that rallies youths against joining gangs.  We all have a stake and the only way to accomplish it is by seeing the spark within.

Don’t let the enemy lead you into believing that you are better, worse or not enough of anything. Invest in the understanding that you are a divine being surrounded by other divinities. Now go out and make the world you want.

Hope that helps.

How to Embrace Your Divinity Pt.2: Overcoming Your Fear of the Dark

29 08 2014

Hetepu (Peace) Family.

In “How to Embrace Your Divinity,” I mentioned that if you repeat an affirmations before retiring that it is sown into the superconscious part of your being, which is referred to as fertile grounds of KAMTA. The reason for symbolizing the superconscious part of your being as KAMTA because it is fertile ground, meaning that it has the potential to develop and grow anything you want in your life.

KAMTA - The Black Lands. Literally also known as the fertile region of Upper Kamit in the southern part of the country. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Higher Self.

KAMTA – The Black Lands. Literally also known as the fertile region of Upper Kamit in the southern part of the country. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Higher Self.

The reason we refer to the subconscious part of our being as TASETT is because our subconscious is already in the habit of doing things. In other words, it is the part of your being that functions on autopilot. This is why the perfect analogy of the subconscious part of our being is a desert because the ground is hard and dry.

TASETT - The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Lower Self.

TASETT – The Red Lands. Literally also known as the desert region of Lower Kamit or Egypt. Metaphorically, it symbolizes our Lower Self.

Just to recap, some of the affirmations I suggested could be sown into the fertile part of our being – the superconscious or KAMTA – are “I am happy. I am at peace. I am healthy,” but if you really wanted to jump start something in your being repeat before retiring, “I am God.”

As I stated before, when I repeated this the first time, something remarkable occurred, because all of a sudden I began to realize that I was the creator of my reality. I came to understanding because I had a dream and it was little frightening at first. That’s right, I repeated the affirmation, “I am God” and I had a scary dream.

 basement

In the dream, I was in a basement and I heard some moaning and wailing. It sort of reminded me of my near death experience when I was in the hospital laying on the gurney hearing other patients cry out for Death to take them. Anyway, in the dream, I was kind of in a pit in the basement, then I levitated out of the pit and hovered around above the basement floor. I remembered I did a couple of flips and loops as if I was trying to become familiar with my flying abilities. Then, I flew up a flight of stairs to a bedroom that was above the basement, which was brightly lit. Afterwards, I awoke from the dream.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

As I said, it was scary at first until I began to interpret what the dream meant and realized that it was referring to the Maa Aankh. The basement corresponded to my superconscious self or KAMTA. It was scary at first because Western society teaches us to fear the dark and everything that is unknown.  Everything that is not physically visible we are taught to fear and categorize it as evil, not understanding that this is society’s way of programming us to fear our ancestors and see them as evil ghosts, fear our spirit guides and fear our divinity.

The watery like pit that I was raised out of was none other the chaotic waters of Nyun. Those familiar with Kamitic cosmology will recall that according to Kamitic creation theory, in the beginning there was nothing but a watery chaotic abyss. Chaos simply means no order, which is why after God created Him/Herself, the next order of business was to bring order or Maa out of chaos. Me hovering above the waters was a message that Maa was now being put into my life.

After I hovered above the waters in the basement, I did a couple of flips because it symbolized that I was free, not bound by anything. In other words, when you tap into the superconscious part of your being, you can achieve anything. Then, I flew up into the habitual, visible or subconscious part of my life that functions on autopilot, which was confirmation that I create my reality.

Judgement Scale

Judgement Scene

Now, some of you might be asking why this important. Well, the answer is for several reasons. First, the point of telling you this is to give you proof of a shamanic dream. If I had thrown into the story some animal headed figures or some other grotesque images you would have a read the first pages of my Book of the Dead. That’s right, the Kamitic Book of the Dead or Pert em Hru is basically an individual’s dream diary. Again, most Western scholars just don’t get it because they don’t understand the mind-spirit.

 

The second reason is to help you understand your own dreams. Your dreams are a reflection of your reality in symbolic form.  The way to interpret your dreams is to determine how a symbol makes you feel. We have heard it time and time again, that the only thing to fear is fear itself. Why do you fear becoming a god? Who told you to fear your divinity? Do you think it is blasphemous to state, that you are God? Do you think something is going to happen to you because you state that you are God?

 

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are not living your life according to Maa. I know that Egyptologists and armchair metaphysics and spiritual folks will tell you, “Maa(t) means balance, law, justice, order and righteousness,” but a lot of these people are talking about ethics and morals or right versus wrong. In other words, they are speaking about good versus evil from a Western perspective, which is not a Kamitic or traditional African concept. According to our ancestors along the Nile, good and evil are two sides of the same coin. What is good for one person may be evil for another, and vice versa.

 

When you are living your life based upon good versus evil, you are in essence living your life based upon what you fear may or may not happen, and this is simply chaotic. Why? Because, if everything that you are trying to do is contingent on what may or may not happen. You will never progress. Okay, that seems a little over the head, so let’s break it down to everyday scenario.

 

You have read your history. You have learned that your ancestors accomplished great things. You believe that you are a child of God, but there is some evil conspiracy holding you back or plotting for your demise, and this is the reason you cannot seem to get ahead.  You just contradicted the fact that you are a child of God or a god yourself, and empowered your enemy.  In other words, what you are saying is that the reason you can’t progress is because some evil conspirator(s) are more powerful than God.

 

I didn’t say it. You did and this is what you believe because you are afraid to go into the dark. This means that you are afraid of the devil because you are afraid to be God. If you want further proof, go into a pitch black room and sit there. Most of us will not, because it sounds spooky and society taught us to be afraid of the things that go bump in the night, but I have some good news.

 

That’s right people. This is the Gospel of Aakhu (the ancestors) that Hru had to discover for himself.

 

Guess who is waiting in the dark?

Answer: It is your Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris. This is why the southern part of Kamit or KAMTA was symbolized by the white crown of Osar.)

 

Osar from Maa Ankh 2

Osar Waiting in Kamta

If you will recall that the devil is a liar, then everything that the devil says, you have to learn to do the opposite. If the devil says, the dark is evil you have to consider the source and realize that the dark is the answer to your liberation. Understand that when I am talking about the devil or Set, we are not talking about some specific person or group of people.  We are talking about the devil inside of you a.k.a. your Ego – and not just the arrogant part of you. No but, the energy that is telling you right now “You ain’t God” and saying everything in its power to prevent you from embracing your divinity.

Hru and Set - Fighting the Devil Within

Hru and Set – Fighting the Devil Within

 

The devil or Set resides within our subconscious self or TASETT and will always make you fight yourself. This is why he knows so much about you because if you will recall, the subconscious governs all of our memories. That’s why politicians already know how you are going to vote.  It is the reason the media usually reports inaccurate stories because the devil within them is encouraging them to give discouraging, meaningless stories that generate fear and panic. If reporters don’t comply, then they aren’t paid, so they do so out of fear. Fear is the main reason most people do things, and the reason most of us respond or react a certain way is out of fear. This is why survey polls are routinely conducted in order to measure the public’s response. Of course, if they don’t like the direction you are going, they will tell you something to make your feeling go in the other direction.

 

But, when you face your fear and go into the dark to meet your Osar. You will learn that the true voice is full of love. It doesn’t force or strong arm you into doing something. It is patient and long-suffering.

 

It is only after you have gone into the dark and embraced your divinity that you realize that the reason the devil keeps winning is to force you to play your “spade hands” and become who you were meant to be.  Set, we have to remember is Hru’s uncle, and I don’t know about you but my uncles when I was growing I thought were bullies. They taught you things that your father either couldn’t or didn’t.  It wasn’t until I got older that I appreciated my uncles and realized that they were mean and played the antagonist to help me develop certain character traits in order to become who I am today.  This is why Set exist, because if he didn’t oppose everything we said and believe, we would not develop the traits needed to succeed.

Hru Osar and Set

Hru Osar and Set

 

What this means is that Set will continue to dominate your life because he is a god and you are fighting him from mortal perspective. Not only that, he will continue to beat you silly until you decide to do something about it.  And the only thing you can do to beat another god is to become a god or goddess yourself.

 

Hope that helps.





How to Embrace Your Divinity

28 08 2014

Hetepu (Peace) Family

bible

You know, it is said according to Genesis 1:26 that man and woman are made in the image of God, but most ministers and theologians shy away from this scripture because they don’t have any practical understanding of what it means. Many are so riddled by superstition that they are afraid to even entertain the thought of what this scripture means. Well, just for the record, I use to live in fear. Part of the reason why is because I have a scientific mind (subconscious). I remember praying when I was a kid and having a number of my prayers go unanswered, so this angered me and made me always seek a logical explanation. Yes, I was a borderline atheist that sat on the fence out of fear, but after allowing my fears to dictate how I would live my life.  I decided to cast my fears aside and embrace my divinity.

When I did, what I learned was that to be made in the image of God means that we are a microcosm of a Macrocosm. In other words, we are a micro-universe and everything that can be found in the universe exists within us on a very minute scale. Just like our universe revolves around a sun, there is within our being a miniature sun that our being centers around as well. Just like our universe is composed of two realities – a physical and a spiritual reality.  Within our being there is a physical and spiritual reality as well, which means just like there are hidden forces that exist and causes a seed in soil to take sprout, take form and become a tree. There is hidden within our being the same forces that exist, which can cause an idea or thought to sprout and physically manifest itself in our life. Why do these forces exist within our being as such and work this way?

 sprout

It is because we are a part of nature, and not above it. By the way, the word Nature by the way in Latin is natura, which is derived from the Kamitic word netcher, meaning god or better yet, god-force energy.

When I first began learning about my divinity I realized that I didn’t see this at first because I saw God as being some towering giant that stood a million miles above the earth. This made me feel as if I wasn’t worthy for God’s grace as he looked down upon me from the heavens (ceiling), but as soon as I began to see that the God force was within me, it made sense why some affirmations worked and some didn’t work. That’s right, I had a very unhealthy idea about God.

Have Mercy Upon Me

For instance, if I told myself that I was a healthy. Well, if I didn’t believe that I was healthy, then the affirmation would not work because I was waiting for some force outside of my body to magically endow me with healthiness.

But, when I realized that I was made in the image of God.  It meant when I repeated an affirmation I am actually talking to myself – particularly my divine self within.  In other words, I am trying to stir those hidden forces within me – the same hidden forces that exist in our universe to manifest healthiness.  That’s when I began to overcome my fear of my divinity. You see, just like those hidden forces are stirred in the universe to take an acorn hidden in soil and develop or grow it into a visible and physical tree.  I had to develop or shall we say grow healthiness into my physical life.

That’s right! You got it. Now, don’t try to make logical sense of it because it is a miraculous or magical process. That’s why as soon as I realized that there was a part of me that is supposed to understand a part of the universe, but there’s another part that is not and must remain a mystery. I stopped trying to always figure things out and began to rest assure that if I hand certain problems to the mysterious or spiritual part of my being. It would provide me with a perfect solution to address the visible and physical part of my being.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

To remind myself of this process, I discovered and studied the Maa Aankh cosmogram so that I wouldn’t forget that the part of my being that seeks to understand everything was the habitual part of my being that we call the subconscious or  TASETT. The mysterious part of my being I simply understood was my superconscious self and referred to it as KAMTA.  It was a perfect analogy because KAMTA – the Black Land is a perfect symbol for soil, meaning that just like you plant a seed in soil for the hidden forces to stir and develop into a tree. If you plant an idea deep within your superconscious or deep within your spirit, those same hidden forces will develop that idea into a physical reality.

sprout

So, with that understanding, when I repeated the affirmation or rather declaration before retiring, “I am healthy.” The more I repeated it, the stronger it became like a seed sprouting and rooting itself in fertile soil, “I am healthy” sprouted and rooted itself in the fertile soils of my spirit. In time, I began to feel healthy, think healthy, live healthy and become healthy.

I decided to try out some other affirmations or declarations like “I am strong. I am blessed. I am happy,” and so on.  The successful results from all of these affirmations made me see that any declaration that had to deal with ennobling my character worked, which led me to addressing the final hurdle to overcome my fear of my divinity. So, I took the plunged and repeated this affirmation before retiring, “I am god.”

osar

“Oh, no he didn’t?” you ask, but yes I did and guess what repeating this affirmation before retiring did. It cemented and solidify within my (subconscious) mind that as a Divine Being, I am the creator of my reality and anything that I do not like in my life. All I have to do is stir the powers within me and change them, because after all, I am made in the image of the Divine.

Never Forget

It made perfect sense why great Western minds like Thomas Edison would go to sleep in search of a solution that troubled them in the physical realm. It was so that they could escape the physical reality and seek the counsel of their higher spirit or superconscious mind. Others great minds have found other ways of tapping into the Divine Consciousness like meditation, which simply means contemplation and was initially used to obtain solutions, but in order to get to this point. One has to first overcome their fear of their divinity and understand that the Divine is within them.  When I overcame my fear of my divinity.  It made perfect sense why our ancestors would do a ring shout, because the idea was to move one’s conscious awareness to the superconscious or KAMTA state of being. (Sidebar: It is interesting to note that people who continue to hold on to this shamanic way of thinking perform similar rites and practices by moving in a circular pattern as well).

It was this understanding that made me embrace my divinity and my cultural heritage.  Now, when faced with a problem, I can’t wait to run home so that I can take the issue to my superconscious or spirit. I guess you can say that I can’t wait to go home to go to asleep.

Hope that helps.

Peace.





Why is the Devil Winning?

25 07 2014

Hetep (Peace) Family.

You know, part of the reason why it is so difficult for so many of us to move on with our lives and take control of our future is because we are stuck in the past. We are constantly spending time going over why something happened or it occurred. The lower division of our spirit called in Kamta the sahu (or the subconscious part of our being) makes us want to know why a thing occurred. It forces us to seek a “logical” explanation, so that it will not occur again.  It is sort of like the first time we touched something hot. It was our sahu that remembers the pain and reminds us so that we do not burn ourselves again.

But, there are something that can’t be explained by logic alone. For instance, a lot of people still ask the question why were some of the Native Americans in the Caribbean, North and South America defeated the way they were? Why did slavery occur? Really, because we are a spiritual minded people even when we don’t want to be, what we really want to know is why did God allow genocide and slavery to occur? In fact, let’s go a little bit deeper, why does God allow evil to exist? I mean really, why does God allow terrorists to bomb churches with four little girls or bomb mosques and other religious sites?

Many of us have struggled with these questions for a while now and the traditional means has not provided a good explanation. In fact, no matter how much information we learn, nothing seems to give us solace so that it will never occur again.

osar

Well, I have found that the best way to deal with issues in our past where a logical explanation is not sufficient is to lean upon the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris in Greek) for understanding and peace of mind.  In the Story, after Ra the grandfather of all things gives Osar the enlightenment he wanted to build a peaceful nation, and after Osar successfully unifies his people and builds a prosperous civilization. He is brutally murdered by his brother Set who usurps the throne.  (Osar by the way is associated with our ba or higher self, which is the explanation as to how and why Osar built a prosperous civilization. Set on the other hand, is associated with our sahu. This is the reason our past haunts us because it is Set who knows the weaknesses of our mind likes to torment us with it. Keep this in mind because we will come back to it shortly.)

Hru

Now, Hru (Heru or Horus in Greek), the hero of the story engages his evil uncle Set on the battlefield, but his victories are not consistent and most of them end in stalemates. In one epic battle, Set manages to get close enough to our hero and is able to gouge out his eye.  Hru I imagine, battered, blinded in one eye and hard to see out of the other, flees and finds his father’s old vizier Djahuti (Tahuti, Tehuti or Thoth).  Through magical means Djahuti repairs Hru’s eye perfectly.  As a result, today people from all walks of life happily adorn their bodies and themselves with this Eye of Hru because they understand that it is a symbol of protection but, why and how?

Well, the magic and the power of the Eye of Hru (also called the Left Eye of Hru) is based upon how we interpret the first parts of the Story. For one we have to understand that the Story is alluding to the concept that Hru only one eye or one perspective, which was based solely upon what he could physically see. This corresponds to the Eye of Ra, hence logic.

The fact that Ra, in this case, symbolizes the Creator and is Osar’s and Set’s grandfather could mean the farther one gets away from the Light or the Source, the easier it becomes to lose your way.  Another point that I want to bring out is that because Ra is the grandfather of both Osar and Set, means that the Creator is not bias and doesn’t see the world as we do in black and white, right and left, correct and incorrect. It is all relative to the Creator because to the Divine they are all two sides of the same coin. A while ago, it was put to me this way, that the same life energy that fills your lungs also fills the lungs of our enemies, which means the Divine stays out of the whole matter. One can say that the Divine sees the fight between Osar and Set as sibling rivalry. Think about that the next time you wonder why God allows certain injustices to occur, that the Divine has no say so in the matter.

This is because from a spiritual perspective, both good and evil are needed to justify the other’s existence, hence the whole good and evil dichotomy is actually a cycle where one experiences highs and lows. Note this is why Osar sought Ra in the first place because his people were wild and out (the low). Then Osar introduced to them the Maa and they became civilized (the high). Next, Set usurps the throne and forces the people back into a world of ignorance (another low). I am highlighting this part so that you can reflect back on your life and see the high and low periods in your life.  Note when you are in the highs or at the low points, because this is you life pattern. For instance, I have noticed that I usually get a lot of material blessings around February and March, which is my annual zenith. I can’t explain it, I just know that that is when one of them usually occurs and I have a second one as well. It is like I get a sudden burst of blessings then they wane like the waning moon. So chart your annual cycle. You can also chant your monthly, weekly and daily cycles as well. The monthly cycles are relatively easy because this is when most of us get a paycheck. Notice your energy level. Take note if things are exciting or chaotic because of bills. As with the weekly cycle, note how your energy is come Monday. Do you really feel blue on this Moon-day or is it because everyone say you do? Does Wednesday feel like a hump day, can you really see Npu at the crossroad of the week? Are you really looking forward to Nebhet’s Friday, and if so why? Really take a look and see how your energy level is during the day, week, month and year. See how it cycles or oscillates like a serpent or sin and cosine wave.

Now, if you have completed the above exercises, you will be able to really appreciate our hero in the Story. Part of the reason Hru exists is to escape that high and low energy cycle from above. In esoteric circles this is called transcending your horoscope.  Note using money as an example, we all love when we get some money, but don’t you hate when you don’t have enough money or the money you need to get the things that you want? Of course, because we all hate the lows. Wouldn’t it be great to not have any lows at all? I mean for instance, wouldn’t it be great to have the money you want to take care of your needs all year around and not have to live paycheck to paycheck? Sure it does.

Have you ever asked yourself why you have these lows? I means why is it so difficult for you to save money or keep enough money so that you don’t live paycheck to paycheck?  Have you ever noticed that when you try to save money there is a part of you that fights your decision and wants you to spend all of your money on the things you want? Notice also that every time you try to save your money, something always comes up unexpected? This is where Djahuti comes into the Story and reveals to Hru (by repairing his eye) that our universe was built upon the foundation of Maa.

Maa is Divine Balance, Order, Justice and the Absolute Truth.

This means nothing unexpected happens. It might not have been planned but nothing happens by chance.  That’s right. There is no such thing as coincidences in the traditional African worldview. Everything is based upon cause and effect regardless if you can see or understand it or not. The trick of Set is to convince us that our universe has no order and that everything is based upon what we physically see, but this is an illusion.  This is the reason Set rules over the desert region of  TASETT on the Maa Aankh, which is full of mirages or explained in the Christian lore as the lord of the earth and flesh.  Another interesting point is that the Right Eye of Ra corresponding to Ra moment hovering over TASETT, also represents logical thinking. Meaning, this is the reason logically we are not able to defeat our enemy because we are relying upon the same resources that our enemy uses, who is older and more powerful.) This is why in order to see past the illusion, we must remember that according to the Maa Aankh and other African cosmologies, that the physical emerged out of the spiritual, hence it is our thoughts, ideas, etc. that shape our physical reality.

That’s correct. Everything that you physically see is basically the end product, the end or final result whose origins exist in the unknown, invisible, spiritual realm called KAMTA. Set would have us to believe that grasses, plants and trees just sprout of nowhere, thanks to the Maa and Djahuti the master of science, we know that all plant growth comes from a seed. This means there is a hidden reality beyond our physical reality that makes the things that we see manifest themselves physically. Hence, Hru’s eye is repaired.

As you know, once Hru’s eye was repaired he defeated Set on the battlefield.  No fuss. No muss, because now he has a holistic view, hence Two Eyes are better One.

I say all that to say that evil exists to show us our weaknesses, so that we can overcome them – that is the impurities within our soul.  As to why does God allow evil to exist. The hard truth for many of us to swallow is that God has no say so in the matter because the Divine gave us all free will through Hru.  This is the reason God will never physically appear before you and physically take a cigarette out of our hand because it is harmful to your body.  Nor, will the Divine take a bottle of poison out of our hands and prevent you from ingesting it. If the Divine saved us from our own unwise decisions all the time, how would we ever learn and take responsibility for our own life? How would we know how to manipulate fire to cook our food, warm our homes, fend off invaders, etc. if we never got burned?

Set the Lord of Chaos, Confusion and Disorganization brings about losses to show the limitation of the physical realm or TASETT and the problem with relying solely upon what we see, which is represented by the Ra moment (Midday Sun – Life) falling and becoming Ra Atum (Setting Sun – Death, our spiritual death or demise) on the Maa Aankh(see above).

This is why I tell people all of the time, “God is not going to save you. The Divine created you Hru!”

Hru Osar and Set

Without Set, many of us would never seek the Divine from within and learn to overcome our own shortcomings. It is only when we get really tired of Set kicking our butt from one place to the next (in the physical realm) that we will flee to Djahuti (a wise elder, a master in the field, an oracle, etc.) for some wisdom, so that we can learn how to overcome our personal enemy using both physical and spiritual means. Once you learn how to overcome your enemy, like all lessons in life, you will never be haunted again by the past.
