Why We Love Amun Ra?

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

In a previous post I mentioned that Akhenaten was not a Kemetic hero and how although archeologists and historians hold this heretic king in high regards because he tried to convert the Kemetic people to his own-self tailored religion (Atenism).  It was because of the valiant efforts of the faithful adherents of the Amun Ra tradition, that Kemet was rescued from the jaws of death and return her once more to a state of glory.

If you don’t know about Amun Ra you would assume that the reason the Kemetic people returned to this spiritual path is because they simply like worshipping idols and living a polytheistic life versus Akhenaten’s monotheistic peace-one-god fearing – religion.  Don’t be fooled Family. All of the monotheistic “I come in peace” religions have brought nothing but demise, which is the reason the world is in the current spiritual state today. So, what was so special about the Amun Ra tradition? Why is it, thousands of years later people are still attracted to the Amun Ra path?  Why is it despite the demonization from the western academic community, western religious groups, not to mention the gross film industry that portrays the Kemetic people as non-black-Africans and ETs, people are still attracted to this ancient path.  What is it that is so great about the Amun Ra tradition?

Well, to understand this we must do two things:

First, realize that although archeologists and historians claim that the Kemetic people left no explanatory texts regarding the Amun Ra tradition, the remnant of the Amun Ra tradition have been found throughout Central and West Africa.

Second, we must realize that the Kemetic people did not worship gods and goddesses, but that these so-called deities are concepts used to describe an abstract quality that exists in the Universe and within our being. For instance, Osar (Osiris) is not a physical god of the underworld but symbolizes the Higher Self. Set is not some evil god of chaos but symbolizes our lower self – in particular our ego who is the culprit of most of the problems in our life. Failure to see these “gods/goddesses” as concepts within Nature and within our being will prevent you from growing spiritually because you are unable to see the correspondence between you and other living things. In other words, you see yourself as separate from everything, thus making you more competitive (aggressive) and less cooperative (interdependent).

This allows us to see a direct cultural link between the Kemetic people and traditional societies.  I found through my personal research a cultural connection between the Kemetic people and the Bantu-Kongo people of Central Africa. By making one-to-one correspondence between the Kemetic and ancient Bantu-Kongo philosophy.  I discovered the Maa Aankh, which indicates that we live in a dualistic world that is governed by Maa.

This means in a nutshell that what goes up must come down, for every right there is a left, for every cause, there is an effect.  This constant flux is what I refer to as the Shu (Kemetic Yang) and Tefnut (Kemetic Yin) of life and we can say that it manifests itself as stress and rest.  Therefore, contrary to western thinking, life is not black and white. Nature is not totally competitive, but it balances itself by having a cooperative aspect. This is the reason lions and other predators do not hunt 24/7.  We must understand that between white and black that there are a lot of shades of grey.  This means everything in life has levels.

Stress, for the record is not bad. Stress is nothing more than resistance and it is needed to help build strong muscles, which is necessary to lift weights and heavy objects. However, too much stress can cause a problem because without proper and adequate rest our muscles can be overextended and can never recuperate. If we understand that Rest/Stress are two-sides of the same coin.  For our purposes, the Rest side is symbolized as KAMTA and the Stress side is symbolized as TASETT. This means there are four probabilities in regards to mental states. Therefore:

  • We have excessive rest, which is symbolized by the Amun Ra mental state.
  • Average rest which is symbolized by the Khepera mental state.
  • Average stress which is symbolized by the Ra mental state, and.
  • Excessive stress, which is symbolized by the Ra Atum mental state.

Let’s see some working examples.

 

The Amun Ra Modality of Daily Living (Excessive Rest)

One day we feel as if we are on top of the world. Everything is going fine. We are meditating, doing rituals, studying, etc. on a regular basis. We got money in our pockets and the bills are paid. There are no worries.  No drama, which means we are at the Amun Ra mental state or what many call Nirvana or Namaste (Notice the serene look that appears on all ancient Amun Ra statues and icons). It should be noted that the reason this state is so blissful is because our awareness is internalized, hence the Sun is within KAMTA.

The Khepera Modality of Daily Living (Average Rest)

It would be great for us all to live in this mental state all the time, which is the reason so many meditation teachers spend lifetimes trying to master it, but we are thrown out of this state of bliss the more stress we become or the more we externalize our awareness.  Hence, our Sun is at the Khepera moment meaning we are more on the edge of KAMTA, then TASETT.

Babies are the only human beings on the planet that are naturally close to this mental state because babies have little to no concerns or worries in the world. However, infants do worry about when they are going to receive their next feeding and this is what throws them out of the Amun Ra mental state.  This is because any time we think about our basic survival needs like food, shelter, etc. Our awareness is externalized. There are only a few people in our world who are able to walk around with a smile on their face and live totally worry free knowing all of their concerns will be addressed.

Although it would be great to live a life in bliss by walking around in Amun Ra, for most of us it is just not practical. So most of us are drawn to the Khepera mental state because we are concerned about our survival, the survival of our loved ones, etc. This naturally makes us think about out our basic survival needs like food, shelter, etc.  At this mental state, most of us are able to easily retreat back to Amun Ra when things go awry. The reason most people attend church or any other religious service regularly is because the religious service is able to assist them in returning mentally to the Amun Ra mental state, which is the mindset that everything is working according to plan.  Some other activities that help us to return to the Amun Ra mental state from the Khepera moment are daily, weekly and monthly rituals; meditation and meditative exercises, which means that the reason the Kemetic people favored the Amun Ra path over Atenism is because they had tools (icons) to assist them in returning their awareness inward.

The Ra Modality of Daily Living (Average Stress) 

However, most of do not live our day-to-day life in the Khepera mental state. The society we live in forces most of us to live at the Ra mental state where we must compete and fight for everything that we want and need.  Here most of are in a competitive mind state and we fight everything.  Notice that the Ra moment is opposite of the Amun Ra moment, which means we have transitioned from the mind state of thinking our concerns will be care for to we must take of our concerns ourselves because our awareness is totally externalized. This also means that since our awareness is very externalized, it requires a lot of effort to return to our natural Amun Ra state, which is the reason many opt for the use of temporary fixes like alcohol, drugs, sex, etc.  I hope you are seeing the pattern, which is that the more externalized our awareness is the harder it is for us return to our divine state of being and the more we identify with our external environment.

The Ra Atum Modality of Daily Living (Excessive Stress) 

It should be noted that the Ra moment is a very volatile mind state because too much stress leads to Ra Atum.  So, the Ra moment signifies the start of the downwind in our life.  This is when everything (it seems) starts going awry and we have major obstacles, obstructions, problems, major setbacks, etc. occur but, this is all due to us externalizing everything.  It is important to understand that excessive stress is symbolized as Ra Atum and it signifies a drastic need for change in one’s current actions, activities and behaviors, etc. or else death.

Therefore, from a contemporary perspective we see that although King Akhenaten may not have planned for it, his Atenism religion was racing Kemet towards the Ra Atum moment or the moment of death.  This is the reason the Kemetic people returned to the Amun Ra path and Kemet was saved because it was our initial Divine mind state.

We can use the Maa Aankh in our life to see where our current actions and behaviors are leading us today and return to our initial Divine mind state as well.  For instance, if you feel as if you are on top of the world. You are feeling lucky and blessed, you are most likely around the Khepera and Amun Ra moment.  You would do well to try to maintain this mental state by balancing your awareness so that it does not become to externalized, hence having one foot in the KAMTA (spiritual realm) and TASETT (physical realm).

However, if you are experiencing some major obstructions, (e.g. the loss of a family member, health issues, etc.) this is a sign that you may be at the Ra moment and your life has taken a turn towards Ra Atum. Remember, death does not necessarily mean the end or final act but simply indicates a grave situation due to excess and extreme externalization of our awareness where you are more in TASETT than KAMTA. You are reminded that you simply need to draw your awareness (Sun) back within.

We love Amun Ra because we love basting in the power and peace of our initial Divine consciousness.
