The Difference between Kamitic Spirituality and Western Religious Beliefs

29 07 2015

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings Family)

You know archaeologists, religious zealots and the lot would like people to believe that indigenous people all over the world just worship rocks, cows, trees, their ancestors, deities, etc. They would have you to believe that those of us in spiritual traditions are primitive and idol worshiping people.  And, that our entire spiritual way of life is illogical and based solely upon our feelings. That the Kamitic people just lucked upon the creation of the pyramids, medicine, mathematics, chemistry, philosophy, etc. That it was a fluke and that’s why the Kamitic civilization existed for thousands of years in peace.  In other words, they want people to believe that those of us in spiritual traditions are crazy.

Yet, nowhere in the history of the world is there a record of people who followed a traditional spiritual way of life raping, pillaging and warring with another, due to a difference in religious and spiritual beliefs. In fact, there is not even a record of this occurrence occurring in the Western world. Meaning you never heard of any ancient Greek, Roman or Norseman saying “I am going to kill you in the name of Zeus (Mars, Odin, etc.)!”

This never occurred until the three major Western religions came into existence. This is the first time that you hear or read of someone saying that they are going to kill another individual in the name of God (as if God can’t defend him/herself). In other words, it is the first time you hear of extreme religious fundamentalism.  In which you have a group of people saying “my god is stronger than your god!”

In other words, what they are saying is that “my beliefs are more important than your beliefs”, “my ideas are more important than your ideas”, “my way of life is more important than your way of life”, “my culture is more important than your culture”, “my people are more important than your people,” which means I need to annihilate you unless you convert to my way of life, my culture, my ideas, my beliefs”.

That’s really what these religious zealots, fundamentalists and extremists are all saying and this is the premises of Western religious conquest.  It is the reason most of our ancestors all over the globe converted to Judaism, Christianity or Islam.  They didn’t convert to these faiths out of love. They converted to these faiths out of fear. The fear for their life, the fear for the safety of their love ones, the fear for their future, and the same fear that forced them to convert to these faiths, Is the same fear controlling these faiths now.

This is the reason it is heresy to ask questions about Jehovah, Yahweh, God or Allah.  It is the reason why one is labeled a heretic for asking or saying anything about the prophets or any discrepancy one finds in the religion.  This is mainly because most religious leaders in these religions don’t know the answers to these questions themselves because it is based upon beliefs, not actual practical experience.  It should now make sense why when you ask any religious zealot, any religious fundamentalist and extremist a practical question, they have to refer to their religious books.  They can never give you a straight, practical and wise answer because they don’t know. They never had the experience and don’t know how to access the wisdom to get it. You see they talk a good game about God being omnipotent, omnipresent and all-knowing but here is the proof that they don’t know God.

I mean think about it. If God is all – knowing and omnipotent, why do you have to defend God if someone says something that they don’t like? If God is so, all knowing, why can’t get their god to fix their community or country?  Why can’t their god stop them from fighting one another? Why can’t their god make them agree on one thing and unite all of their denominations? Why can’t their god solve their problems before trying to solve someone else’s? Not only that, why is their god so sensitive and easily offended? If their god is all knowing, why can’t their god let them ask questions or give them the answer before they ask? Why does their god become angry and have to threaten to kill them like an abusive parent to get them to praise him? It is because these people don’t know really know God for themselves and don’t understand that they are living in spiritual tyranny.

This is why they always have to refer to their books.  Now, if you went to a doctor and every time you asked a question, he or she had to look up in a medical book to give a diagnosis. Would you believe that they know what they are doing? Same holds true for these religions of the book because they were conceived out of fear. That is the fear of what might happen. The fear of the future. The fear of whatever…

fear

The Kamitic spiritual tradition (and all other indigenous spiritual traditions) was conceived out of love. That is the love of God, the love of one another, the love of family, the love of community, the love of nature, and so on. Our rituals are not done to appease an angry god. In other words, if we don’t do something it is not like God is going to strike us down or curse us. We don’t pray and do rituals to benefit God because the Divine is, that’s right – omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. What then would be the purpose of praising God? So the purpose of praying and doing rituals is to benefit ourselves, our loved ones, our community, etc.  We don’t worship our ancestors. The purpose of working with our ancestors is so that we don’t lose our selves. All of our rituals are based upon the some aspect of the energy of universal love and for the record, romantic love is just a fragment of this universal energy.

You see there are only two main energies in our universe and they are universal love and fear. The Kamitic sages were masters of symbols, which is why they symbolized fear as Set.  They understood that fear is based upon ignorance and therefore limited understanding of life. When you act out of fear, you act out of ignorance. You don’t know what you are doing because you are afraid. You constantly have to refer to books and manuals because you don’t have any real practical experience, so you must refer to another’s.  You are dependent solely upon the physical things you know.

Set of TASETT (from Maa Aankh 2)

Set – the Kamtic symbol for Fear

Universal love was symbolizes as Osar. The Kamitic sages understood that love is based upon knowledge. Knowledge is not a collection of books and texts. It is inner and outer knowing. When you act out of love you know what you are doing. You are driven to know out of passion. You are passionate about the subject you are interested in to the point that anyone can ask you anything about it, and you can answer. You know the subject inside and out because you not only believe it but you have lived it.

Osar from Maa Ankh 2

Osar the Kamitic symbol of Universal Love

This is the reason most people on the spiritual traditional path can give you a logical explanation for partaking in a particular ritual. The reason most of these people (and spiritual traditional practitioners all around the world) were called primitive in the first place, was because they could not explain their practices in a way that Westerners could understand it.  In other words, they couldn’t explain their complex and abstract ideas to Westerners using Western language. If these people were to use their own language, you will find that they had a scientific explanation behind everything that they did. We never hear about it because Westerners have convinced the world that logical thinking is a sign of intelligence and abstract thought is primitive.

This is how Westerners were able to convince all indigenous people that they were superior.  The story is the same all over the globe.  Every indigenous nation that Europeans encountered was amazed by their technological wonder and equated this (and everything Westerners possessed particularly their “perspective” religion because initially Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all derived from ancient African traditions) as a sign of greatness. We need to understand this because once you see that Westerners ability to create technological wonders has not improved relationships between men and women, cured diseases (since polio) or removed the threat of a nuclear war.  Then you will see the great Western illusion and realize that true power/greatness comes from within and stop giving your power to a system designed to oppress you. We have to realize that the only thing that is enslaved is our mind but by returning to our ancestral ways it can be liberated. Four hundred years can’t stop what has been going on for centuries.

chain-broken

This is why you can’t and you won’t find rich symbolism in Western religions because if functions out of fear and has a limited perspective.  This is the reason if you ask any of these religious zealots and fundamentalist why they must attend the synagogue, temple, church or mosque.  They are going to give the same answer which is to praise and worship God.  I hope you are beginning to see that all of these three major Western religions are based upon tragedy or the possibility of some imminent threat. Understand this is no different from worshiping a volcano and hoping it doesn’t erupt like Joe Versus the Volcano.

Maa Aankh Cosmology

Now, I know that there are benefits for engaging in the ritual practice of attending church or some other religious service but I am trying to get you to see the difference is in the focus and purpose. I am also trying to help you to understand why so many people are leaving these religions (or abandoning religion completely), while explaining that true salvation and liberation can be found in returning to our cultural spiritual traditions.

Understand, most religious beliefs are based upon an ideology, which means it is subject to change depending upon circumstances.  This is the reason there are so many religious denominations and so much politics in these religions. Not only that, these religious ideologies makes one totally dependent the religion, the state, and others because they learn that they can’t save themselves. Salvation must come from another. In other words, you are set up to be a slave or pawn in someone’s system.

amunt

Kamitic spirituality (and most spiritual traditions) on the other hand are based upon reality, which means they focus on achieving tangible results. Therefore, one learns how to be responsible and self-discipline.  Again, I must say that it is not as if individuals in spiritual traditions don’t have problems because we do. The difference is that we don’t just say and believe that God is omnipotent, all – knowing and omnipresent.  We believe that since we were made in the image of God and that God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient that the essence of the Divine is within all of us, and on a minute scale we have the same divine attributes. Our problems stem from us not knowing how to use our divine powers. We pray, do rituals, etc. in order to use our divine powers appropriately, so that we can improve our life, and therefore know from experience God for ourselves.

Hope this helps.





Hru (Heru, Horus) Knows that Nonviolence is Predicated on His/Her Opponent Having a Conscience

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

The Right Eye of Ra (Also known as the Solar Eye corresponds to literal and physical sight.)

You know when most people hear the term “spiritual blindsided” they immediately equate it with being caught off guard by a situation resulting in inappropriate behavior, like losing their temper. While this is one aspect of being spiritually blindsided, from an ancient African perspective when an individual is too spiritual they can be blinded as well resulting in them being imbalanced. Imbalance from the Kamitic perspective is symbolized as having one eye usually the Right Eye of Ra.

unbalanced

Spiritual imbalance is often symbolized by the Right Eye of Ra because it corresponded to the limited understanding of our subconscious.

Balance in the Kamitic tradition is symbolized as Maa, personified by the spirit (netchar) Maat and it is the most important theme in Kamitic spirituality because it leads to enlightenment.  Most people don’t see this because there is still a lot of confusion about whom and what is Maa and Maat.  This confusion exists because Western archeologists and scholars have interpreted our ancient ancestral writings from their limited perspective but they don’t understand African thought.  As a result, many of us are trying to equate Maa with karma believing that Maa is all about “reaping what you sow” or the belief that some final judgement is to make everything alright. I was guilty of this when I was younger as well thinking that in order to master the Maa I had to commit the 42 Laws of Maat to memory.  I also believed that some great cosmic event was going to overturn the society and people who acted “good” were going to be saved.  It wasn’t until I began working with my ancestors that I began to truly see that Maa is the symbol of Law, Balance, Order, Righteousness and Truth; and on a weekly thanking Maat for bringing “balance and order into my life” that I began to get a holistic perspective. Maa also corresponds to Insight because once you see the truth you know it and it will make you aware, which is why in the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) it is alluded that the hero Hru had his eye gouged out by the enemy Set. This eye was none other than the Left Eye of Ra.

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

The Left Eye of Ra (also called the Lunar Eye corresponds to intuition and spiritual sight, hence insight.)

You see the maa (balance, law, order, truth, etc.) for one person is not going to be the same for another because we are all unique, which means the words, acts, behaviors, things, etc. that create imbalance in my life, most likely are going to differ from yours.  The Maa is the same for all beings on the planet and one of our objectives is to learn how to live in harmony with it. This is the reason we have to have a very clear understanding about the divinity within our being and understand that certain things are not just detrimental to our being, but to families, friends, community and the entire society. Let me explain.

When Charles Darwin wrote the Descent of Man in 1871, where he talks about how after studying nature there seemed to be a survival of the fittest that exist. English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley, known as “Darwin’s Bulldog” was the individual that advocated and promoted this idea.  Thereby, validating the belief that it was natural for human beings to compete and dominate one another because the same behavior occurs in the wild.

Consequently, the “survival of the fittest” trend has been promoted all over the globe as the natural way we are supposed to live as human beings. It is the philosophical mantra used throughout the Western world on how to do everything from engaging in a relationship with one another to how to conduct business. It is a continual cycle of competition because adult males and females are taught as children that they have to fight with one another (Battle of the Sexes), and since children imitate what they see. They attend school or meet on the playground to compete or dominate their peers in whatever ways they possibly can. Of course, if the child has suitable resources (leadership, economic, etc.) in their community, they are able to act out their competitive and domineering energies in sports or some other extracurricular activities. If they do not, then the child engages in destructive and illicit activities and this where the problem appears to begin.

Once an atrocity or heinous act is committed by a child, young adult, a group of young adults, etc., is when you find people on both sides of aisle playing the blame game. Some will argue that it was due to the lack of resources that created the condition for a heinous act to be committed. While others will argue that the “lack of resources” is an excuse and that the real problem is simply that people won’t take responsibility and get with the program. In other words, the reason so many children are doing poorly is because they have deadbeat fathers, unwedded mothers and a lack of ethics and morals. This cycle of blaming continues to go on and on to it being about language.  All of this occurs while people wait for the next major atrocity to occur to react to.  All while missing that the root cause stems from this limited mindset that we all have about life.

The facts are that Darwin only mentioned “survival of the fittest” a couple of times in his book, which was distorted by Huxley. Darwin mentioned the word “love” over 90 times because he noticed that while nature is competitive. It is also cooperative.  Darwin noted that the reason human beings were able to evolve without the agility, speed and strength that animals have is because we learned how to cooperate with one another for the greater good.

We see examples of these two traits all throughout nature of animals from the smallest to the largest primates. A herd of gazelles work together to protect one another (especially the young) from predators.

Elephants exhibit this same behavior trait.  Animals are only aggressive when they feel threatened.  Ants for instance, are aggressive whenever they need to defend their territory or kill in order to eat, but they build they are very cooperative with the rest of nature in order to live.

In other words, animals only kill when they have to. A lion doesn’t hunt down a whole herd of gazelles. They only kill what they need and it is done to feed their entire pride, pack, streak (or community). The rest of their existence is spent do what is necessary for the pride, pack, streak, etc.

scale-of-justice

This competitive/cooperative aspect that exists in nature is what the Kamitic sages would call the Maa. It is not The Law per se, but all of nature follows it. It is not The Balance, but since all of nature follows it everything in nature is balanced.  It is not The Truth per se, but is the absolute truth because no matter where we go. We see that everything in nature adheres to this same scheme.

Scale of Maa

Scale of Maa

The Kamitic people understood that Maa should exist between fire and water, earth and sky, male and female, aggressive and passive, etc. When Maa doesn’t exist within an individual, community or society, there is imbalance or chaos. The Kamitic rulers and sages understood this concept so well that when they went to war (competitive), they didn’t totally annihilate their adversaries like the Americans did when they decided to drop the A –bomb on the already defeated Japanese during WWII to demonstrate their might. No, the Kamitians simply fought enough in order to eliminate the threat.  The defeated region was brought into the Kamitic fold if they chose to do so, but it was all done for the greater of the whole. This is the reason when the Kamitians defeated their enemies (like the Hyskos) they didn’t annihilate them. They simply beat them into submission.

An analysis of Kamitic history will reveal that they like other traditional Africans and non – Westerners (like the Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Indigenous of Australia, etc.) basically lived their lives based upon a consensus. That is by doing what is best for the whole by sacrificing the wants of the few for the many.  This is the same behavior that we see in nature and this cooperative energy is what the Kamitic people personified as the spirit (netchar) Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek).  Which legend tells us that Osar was the inventor of agriculture (through the help of his wife), the legendary ruler that united the people and brought civilization all through cooperation. Osar is attached to the superconscious mind or the Ba part of our being (the unlimited part of our mind symbolized as KAMTA), which functions out of love.

KAMTA – The Black Lands (symbol of our Higher Self and the Superconscious Mind) ruled by Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris in Greek). The realm of our aakhu (ancestral spirits and spirit guides) and the netcharu (guardian spirits).

Clearly you see that this is not the same type of society that we live in today. The American society sacrifices the wants and needs of the many for the selfish desires of the individual or selected few.  We can see this same competitive and selfish behavior throughout the Western world. You can call it democracy, capitalism, socialism, communism, etc. but it is all the same because it is not based upon the true nature of the human being, which is to love or cooperate with one another. It is based upon competition and conquest.  An analysis of Western thought throughout history will show this which is the reason Christopher Columbus is still celebrated as a national hero despite the fact that he initiated the decimation of the Amerindian people throughout the Americas. He is clearly a symbol used to advocate and promote the interests of the selected few over the many. Understand. Christopher Columbus is celebrated as a national hero because he symbolizes competition and conquest. This is the reason American history books continue to promote the idea that Columbus brought civilization to the “New World” or Americas as if the Amerindians weren’t civilized. This arrogant, egotistical, limited and selfish energy is what the Kamitic people called the spirit Set, which is attached to the subconscious mind or the sahu part of our being (the limited part of our mind symbolized as TASETT), which manifests itself out of fear.

TASETT – The Red Lands (symbol of our lower self and the subconscious mind) ruled by Set (Seth, Set-an, the Devil). The physical realm of the living.

Osar is the energy of cooperative love and Set is energy of competitive fear. Westerners will tell you that Set is the devil and we are taught to be afraid of him again because they don’t understand African thinking. Both love and fear are energies with positive and negative aspects like any other energy. It is natural to fear because it prompts you to take protective measures, but too much fear or uncontrolled fear will result in you destroying your life or the lives of others. Love is the same way. If one is too cooperative they end up being abused and misused by predators.  This is the reason Kamitic sages kept stressing that people live a life of Maa.

Our ancestors lived in a similar society like the Kamitic people did but when the Europeans abducted, enslaved and brought them to the Americas, this way of life was interrupted. (I say interrupted because many of our families after slavery was abolished continued to live their lives based upon a consensus of the whole). Slowly but surely many of them were assimilated into the American society, and in time we lost this philosophical perspective about life. Again, many people want to claim that it was because of Christianity but I found that this is not totally true.

We have to accept and understand contrary to popular belief that all of our ancestors weren’t forced into Christianity. Many of our ancestors from the Kongo – Angolan region were Christians or at least familiar with the Christian faith prior to being brought to the Americas. When these Africans were brought to North America, they already had in their minds a working syncretized model of their indigenous beliefs and Christianity. In other words, the Africans from the Kongo – Angolan region had a spiritual system of resistance in their mind, which I strongly believe they taught to the other Africans brought to North America.

History shows that when the England commissioned the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG) to Christianize Native Americans and Africans in the New World to protect English interest, so that the colonies wouldn’t be taken over by France and Spain. The Anglican missionaries had a difficult time completing their tasks for a number of reasons.  It was difficult for them to convert the Amerindians because the Native Americans being familiar with the land could easily flee back to their villages. Many enslaved Africans were able to resist the conversion because they didn’t make a distinction between spiritual and secular, so they had already conceptualized that “salvation” meant “freedom” from slavery. When Euro – American slaveholders witnessed this change in attitude and behavior, they strongly objected to the conversion to Christianity.

It wasn’t until the 1800s that most enslaved and free descendants of Africa willingly converted to Christianity.  Many of them fond of the plain – styled preaching of Baptist and Methodist ministers, along with the fact that these denominations initially opposed slavery, while allowing the blacks to practice Christianity according to their African beliefs, which consisted of spirit possession, dancing, singing and shouting, is the reason many willingly converted to the Christian faith.

Later on, Christian missionaries in an effort to placate the growing concern among slaveholders in North America, perverted the Christian teachings and began preaching to the Africans the “good slave” doctrine (instruction), which is, that part of their Christian duty was to be a good slave by obeying their masters, protecting their slave owners property and not destroying it. It was the “good slave” doctrine that eventually led to the creation of the Curse of Ham myth, which was that blacks were inferior to whites because after the biblical Noah’s son Ham witnessed his father drunk and naked.  Noah cursed Ham’s descendants (people of dark skin) to all be slaves.

Slaveholders became aware that religion (or anything for that matter) could be used as a tool of control in the 1800s, but early African Americans like Denmark Vessey (1820) and Nat Turner (1831) also were aware that religion could be used as a tool of liberation because they saw the hypocrisy of Christian slaveholders. This allowed them to get a holistic view as many people of African descent did who rebelled against the institution of slavery.

The problem that many of us have today is that we have been taught to love or be passive and cooperative but not to be aggressive and competitive. As a result, we have a limited or narrow view of life. On the other hand, there are those of us who reject the passive and cooperative aspect and have embraced wholeheartedly the aggressive and competitive aspect thinking that this will solve our problems.  The thing is that we have to understand that both perspectives (the cooperative symbolized by Osar and the competitive symbolized by Set) by themselves will lead to a great imbalance.  We can’t be polarized by one or the other.  We need both because separately they are not Maa.

Hru96-1

Maa is symbolized as Hru who is the son of Osar and the nephew of Set, which is why Hru wears the white crown of KAMTA (Osar’s crown) and the red crown of TASETT (Set’s crown), known as the double white and red Pschent crown. It is the Kamitic symbol of self – mastery and self – discipline, which means that Hru can be aggressive and passive whenever he or she needs to be.

This means that Hru can love and cooperate with everyone like Osar, but he ain’t no fool and knows that everyone is not on that same level. He saw examples of this through his uncle Set. This is why Hru is all about forgiving people for their sins and the wrongs they have committed, but understands that through Maa that one has to right their wrong in order for them to be forgiven because the energy is not balanced. Hru believes and works towards a nonviolent society, but understand the physical reality that we must protect ourselves.  Hru understands what Baba Kwame Ture (aka Stokely Carmichael) expressed and I paraphrase that “nonviolence is predicated on your opponent having a conscience”1. This is why Hru is situated in the middle of the Maa Aankh cosmogram.

maa aank2014b

We need to understand this because I have seen people take this limited perspective with them everywhere they go. They will take this narrow view and they may say Osar (Asar, Ausar or Osiris), Obatala or whatever, but they are still approaching it from this limited one – sided perspective of either being all about cooperation or competitive. This is why we hear of so much corruption in organized and diaspora traditions.  Fortunately, it can all be corrected and balance restored by working with our ancestors.

See, the ancestors from the ancient African perspective are the pallbearers of Maa. Since they do not have a physical body they are not limited by time and space, which means that they can see what we can’t see and have the ability to go anywhere. When we include them in our lives, they can provide us with a holistic perspective through our dreams, visions and divination that stretches beyond our physical eyes. You see divination will give you insight on if you need to attend an event or not, or if someone can be trusted or not. If someone is being truthful or selfish and so on.  There are some divination tools (oracles) that give you insight on how to make partnerships works.  In other words, through working with our ancestors we get a holistic view that is not just based upon our beliefs and opinions, which can and are usually wrong.

The Eyes of Ra (Provide a Holistic Perspective)

Could you imagine if before we went to the voting polls we came together, asked our ancestors for guidance and did a reading on the candidate that would be beneficial to us, how much our life would change? Just the thought of it should give you goosebumps!  And, I am going to let you in on a secret. People like the Chinese having been doing it for years and the thing is that we have been doing it as well because this is how Hru was able to defeat his enemy through the intercession of his ancestor.  This is the only way we will be able to defeat our physical and spiritual enemies as well.

We have to realize that the reason the Kamitic civilization became great was because of the rapport they had with their ancestors (aakhu). Proof of this fact can be seen all along the Nile with various structures dedicated to the highest of ancestors. Learning the history of what our ancestors did was great, but the only way to trigger the ancestral consciousness within our being is by incorporating our ancestors into our lives.

Ancestor veneration and divination is a cultural practice that we have been made to be ashamed of only because it is effective and it is not beneficial to the Setian system we find ourselves in today. This is why it is important that you understand that if the idea of honoring your ancestors and communicating with them on a daily or weekly basis spooks you.  It is because the spirit Set has a hold on you. In fact, if you go to a Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant or store, and you aren’t spooked by their shrines greeting you at their place of business, but the image of an African divinity frightens you and makes you cry out “heathen, idolatry, evil, etc.” Then, Set really has a hold on you because you see no problem in honoring (or respecting) the cultural practices and ideology of another culture used to resist selfish Western values, but find fault in your own ancestral practices used for the same exact psychological reasons.

We need to return to our ancestral way, which will help us to see beyond the superficialities that keep us falling for the same poli-tricks or pile of tricks (politics) that keeps us from building the future we want for our children. It is the only way we can restore Maa back into our lives.

I’M KAMITIC! AND I’M PROUD! (What it Really Means to be Kamitic)

13 02 2015

Hetep (Peace)

I know most of you have heard the famous 1970s Cultural Hit anthem by James Brown, “Say it loud. I’m BLACK and I’m PROUD!” Well, I deemed it time to change this popular mantra and declare that I’m KAMITIC AND I’m PROUD! I decided to write this post in response to the misrepresentation some have due to the growing usage of the popular Kamitic term “Hetep” which means “Peace”.  Understand it is not my intention to belittle anyone or group but to clearly distinguish from my perspective what is and who is Kamitic (Kemetic, Khemetic, etc.) versus individuals that are at present caught up in the moment, so that true seekers don’t get the wrong idea.

First, being Kamitic is not a fad, something that is popular or the “in thing” right now. I mean it is great that people want to decorate their body, home, etc. with ancient Egyptian motifs and all but, this is not what being Kamitic is about.

To understand what Kamitic is and is not we have to understand how it all began.  According to my research, when Central and West Africans were taken to the Americas.  Each of these ethnic groups brought with them a fragment of their cultural spiritual traditions. Those taken to Cuba used their African cultural heritage combined with Amerindian and Spanish influence to create the rich Afro-Latino traditions known as Lucumi (Santeria), Palo Mayombe and Abacua; in Puerto Rico similar Afro-Latino influences were used to create Santisimo and Santeria; similar influences combined with the French gave rise of course to Vodun in Haiti and Las 21 Divisiones in Dominican Republic (Las 21 Divisiones/Los Misterios also known as Dominican Vudu); while developing in Trinidad and Tobago there was Shango Baptiste; and last but not least in Brazil, Candomble, Macuumba and Umbanda. (Not to mention the other Afro-traditions that exist throughout the Caribbean and South America). All of these powerful and beautiful Afro – spiritual traditions were birthed out of a Spirit of Resistance, but in North America due to the fact that the taskmasters were Protestant, the Africans were unable to create such a tradition. This however didn’t mean that they didn’t try. Instead, the first Africans that stepped on the North American shores (in Jamestown, VA) came from Kongo – Angolan region and they brought with them the infamous Kongo Cross.

The Kongo Cross

The Kongo Cross also known as the Yowa and Dikenga

The Kongo Cross (also known as the Yowa and Dikenga), which was the spiritual and philosophical foundation of the Kongo culture, is what the first Africans in North America used to build their own spiritual tradition of resistance. That’s right, contrary to popular belief, early African Americans did not lose all of their culture – this is a myth.  Our ancestors in North America like many other enslaved African descendants managed to preserve their very own African cosmology. What was lost was the philosophical and theological understanding of our culture. 400 years of slavery can’t erase or undo what has been practiced since Ancient Egypt.

Kongo Cross used to signal and provide for ventilation for those on the Underground Railroad.

Now through this sacred cosmogram early African Americans were able to preserve and create new traditions based upon their African heritage and new American experience, like an informal initiation system reflective of the sun’s movement and the famed ring shout.

Europeans observing the odd behavior and practices, which consisted of early African Americans envisioning their world from a different perspective than their oppressors, labelled it hoodoo and voodoo as a means of demonizing all African beliefs, practices, traditions and cultures. (It should be noted that hoodoo is believed to be derived from the Spanish term judio pronounced hoo-dee-oh meaning Jewish.  It is theorized that the term was used first by the Spanish merchants to identify those Africans who refused to accept the European ethnocentric view of the world that everything wasn’t Christian was primitive and evil).

Anyway, this new perspective that early Africans in America held is what author Theophus H. Smith called a Conjuring Culture.  This Conjuring Culture, which was birthed from the Kongo Cross became the philosophical base for the American Christian church that we see today. Most of the African aspects such as speaking – in – tongues, dancing (shouting), struck by the spirit, prophesizing, etc. – are all African elements that never existed in the Church prior to the genocide of the Amerindians and enslavement of Africans. All of these elements are now widely accepted in all charismatic churches throughout the world without any knowledge that it stems from African spirituality. This cultural appropriation exists because as Churchill said, “History is written by the victors”.

Azusa Street Revival

Azusa Street Revival – the birth of the Pentecostal Movement

Now the Conjuring Culture that was birthed from the Kongo Cross didn’t just create Christian fervor, which emerged and became the famed Azusa Street Revival.  It also gave rise to two very powerful underground movements that exist today because of Psalms 68:31, which states:

“Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon
stretch out her hands unto God”.

In the minds of the Africans in Jamaica, the Kongo Cross gave rise to the black Zionism Movement, where Zion became the iconic figure of Ethiopia, which later became Rastafarianism.  While during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, this verse gave rise to Ethiopianism. Here is where Ethiopia became the iconic figure of return symbolizing freedom. When Dr. Martin L. King Jr. began protesting and marching for civil rights. He was seen as a Black Moses where instead of the biblical Children of Israel being enslaved, it was the Children (Sons and Daughters) of Ethiopia who were enslaved and modern day United States was the biblical Egypt.  This is why Martin L. King constantly compared the civil injustices in the United States with the plight of the biblical Hebrews in Egypt.

But, Egypt was also mentioned in this most widely quoted verse, and this inspired many like W.E.B. DuBois to refer to Egypt in the early 1900s, as an iconic figure for sociopolitical movement. Like the spiritual tradition Rastafarianism that was born out of the black Zionism movement (or Back-to-Africa Movement).  Kamiticism was born out of the Ethiopianism movement, which was first widely popularized throughout the Afro-diaspora by Ra Un Nefer Amen, the founder of the Ausar Auset Society. Both Rastafarianism and Kamiticism are Afro-spiritual traditions born out of necessity and the spirit of resistance.

Unfortunately, although both Rastafarianism and Kamiticism have accomplished a lot throughout the Afro-Diaspora, they both suffer from similar misinterpretations, misrepresentations and misunderstandings.

The same can be said about those who are Kamitic.  Just because someone wears an ankh or some other Kamitic glyph (or image) tattooed on their body doesn’t make them Kamitic. By the way, nor does wearing Kamitic jewelry, having Kamitic artwork (including images of Nefertiti, Tutankhamen, etc.),  saying Kamitic words like “Hetep” or adopting a Kamitic name. While we are at it, learning Kamitic history and practicing a Kamitic inspired religion doesn’t make a person Kamitic either. It helps one to get a better understanding of what it means to be Kamitic but, sorry to step on peoples’ toes.  It doesn’t make them Kamitic no more than an egyptologists (lower cased intentionally) translating hieroglyphs is ancient Egyptian, or practicing Taosim makes an individual Chinese, or Shinto makes a person Japanese.  These are all forms like cloth weaved by a weaver.  Just like clothes don’t make the man, doing these things don’t and will not make an individual more or less Kamitic either.

LifeStory_Egypt-2-980x380

Because being Kamitic is more than wearing Egyptian jewelry, Kamitic clothing, a Kamitic name, speaking Kamitic, etc.  As you have read above, it is not a movement that just started in the 1980s when Afro-centricity became widely popular and grew in the 1970s and 1980s.  No. Kamitic is a cultural way of life and like any other cultural way it consists of an indescribable philosophical change. As a result, it could be said that there are several denominations or groups, and anyone who considers themselves Kamitic should be able to tell you how they made the transition. I can only share what happened to me and my experience.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

From my perspective, Kamitic spirituality adds the missing philosophical and theological elements that were lost due to the slave experience, which has allowed me the ability to interpret life once again from a holistic perspective (and not from the perspective of the victim or victimizer).

This is because when an individual truly converts and becomes Kamitic. They are spiritually born again because an old part of them dies and another part is born. This moment is symbolized as the transition from Ra Atum (setting sun/death) to the Khepera (sunrise/birth) moment on the Maa Aankh. It is similar to receiving the Holy Ghost because it is truly a change in consciousness. This metamorphosis is called in the Kamitic language “Maa Kheru” pronounced “Maa-Xa-ru.” Maa Kheru literally means “One Who is True of Voice“. Meaning, in other words, you see Divine Truth (or it was revealed to you), so you speak and live it.  When this Truth is revealed, it doesn’t have to be something dramatic like the biblical Paul being knocked off his ass (donkey). It is personal and it doesn’t matter if others witness it or not. It is simply revealed to you, thus establishing a rapport between you and the Divine within you.

Maa-The Path of the Feather

Maa-The Path of the Feather

This is how you begin to discover your truth or maa. It also how you receive Divine Protection because Maa literally means Divine Truth, Divine Balance, and Righteousness and symbolizes the Way to the Divine (symbolized as the vertical yellow line on the Maa Aankh).  What this means is that when you begin to connect with the Divine within you. The Spirit will reveal to you your own maa or personal truth to help you balance your life and live righteously.  The Spirit will show you what works best for you and what doesn’t work for you, versus you following a bunch of dogmatic do’s and don’ts created for the masses. For instance, some people in this lifetime need to listen to their spirit and abstain from sweets because it is detrimental to their well being. This same restriction however would not apply to everyone and it doesn’t mean that sweets are bad or evil. It just means for this particular individual(s), they would have to avoid sweets because their spirit revealed to them to do so. Sweets for this individual(s) becomes a taboo for them or basically part of their maa (personal truth, personal balance, personal righteousness living or simply their personal way).

This means you become responsible for your own development.  Thus you are now held accountable to the Divine, your aakhu (ancestors) and to the people. When you willingly violate the maa (your personal truth) that was revealed to you. You reap the consequences. Understand, this is not God or some other entity punishing you for breaking the Law, and by the way you are not going to be rewarded either. The maa is established to help you to work your own spirit.  So when things work, you know what works for you. When things don’t work out, you know what doesn’t work for you, and you know what to do in order to initiate change.  As you can see, when you become Kamitic you become aware of how the Divine Laws interact with you, instead of wondering around with no guide.

Understand Kamitic is what Westerners called pagan.  The word pagan comes from the Latin word paganus, which means “country folk,” hence indigenous, traditional, folk ethnic religious folk practices, etc.

If you watch Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code starring Tom Hanks, you will see him run around the Vatican pointing at obelisks and calling them pagan. When he goes more in detail, he explains how the Church (the Vatican) placed Christian iconography on top of the obelisks in order to subdue those who followed the Egyptian way of thinking. (Note that followers of the ancient Greek religions were called Hellenes – Hellenic culture, gentile and paganos).

What was the Ancient Egyptian or Kamitic Way of Thinking?

The Da Vinci Code hit on it but it masked it with more conspiracy theories, which led people to go in search of a literal golden grail in France or somewhere in Europe. People missed the point and made this all about Jesus and some bloodline. No. It was all about the pagan way. It (and this) has nothing to do with Jesus per se, it was about Gnostic beliefs.

Kamitic Falcon - Hru

You see, Kamitic history reveals that the Kamitic people strongly believed that we are all made in the image of the Divine. That Men and Women are Divine polar opposites and counterparts or the manifestation of the Divine on earth. That Women have similar rights as Men because Men are the Causal, while Women are the Effectual. Said another way, Men are the Initiators of Divine Will, while women are the Manifestors or Makers of the Divine Will. I know it is nice and sounds sweet to call a man, “My King” and a woman, “My Queen” but in Kamit they were serious and history reveals that the men and women literally played the part. Men modeled themselves after the king who emulated the Sun, strong, constant, always shining, resilient, powerful, like that of a lion symbolized as Hru. As women modeled themselves after the queen, who emulated the moon, reflective of her king or the sun and would do anything to protect her family, village and nation as lioness like the netchar Oset (Aset, Auset Greek Isis).

nutgeb

Nyut (the personification of the mysterious and unknown realm symbolized as the female womb) and Geb (the personification of the materialization of what is known symbolized as the male)

Think about that for a moment.  Imagine if men saw their woman as the personification of the cosmos and women saw their man as the materialization of potential. Would sex just be a mere act? I think not. Would a man disrespect his woman or just let anyone run all over his woman? Would a woman just disrespect and allow her man to continue to fight to be in a system designed against them both? I think not. Both would see each other as divine counterparts and would make their world (their kingdom and their reality) in their image. Every time they came together, they would be reminded that they were conceiving (physically and spiritually) an ancestor to enter into the physical realm because the aakhu (ancestors and spirit guides) were symbolized as stars in the night sky of the belly of Nyut (Nut). Do you see why “they” had to demonize us and our way of life? Yeah, it sounds romantic, but as you can see it is beyond that because it creates a natural nationalism that is against the machinations of the ego-self (Set or the devil) that are promoted throughout society today.

You see, there are only two emotions that exist in our universe and they are love and fear. The Kamitic way of thinking truly rivals Western thinking because it is based upon the Love of God. It is because of the Love of God we were made in the image of a Perfect Creator. Therefore, everything that exists in our life (both the good and the bad) was put there by divine design to help us to realize our divinity and accomplish our destiny. In other words, make us spiritually stronger. This is the reason when you truly have overcome a destructive habit you feel accomplished, free, relieved, empowered and victorious.

Western thinking however, is based upon the Fear of God, which is that we were made in the image of the Divine but fell due to sin. Consequently, we have to beg and plead eternally for forgiveness in order to be saved. We have to put ourselves in service of others or go to God through some clergy or we will be punished by a vengeful deity that made us flawed in the first place.

Basically Kamitic thinking is where we basically develop a relationship with God by discovering who the Divine is within us. Whereas Western thinking is where we are told who God is and ostracized or punished for not accepting the beliefs of spiritual tyrants. In other words, Western religious thinking focuses upon people become Children of God, whereas Kamitic spiritual thinking is focused on helping an individual become a Man or Woman of God.

So a true Kamitic is not about following a particular person or group but, his or her Divine’s Will and that is what made the Kamitic people of old dangerous. This is why the early Christian Church waged war against the Kamitic and Kushite (ancient Nubian) people.  This was later followed by the Islamic jihadists, who drove the Kamitic people to the West of Africa and into the African interior.  A true Kamitic descendant in these contemporary times (because that is what we are) is a free thinker that knows how to use all of the faculties of his and her mind (the superconscious/subconscious and conscious). No, we are not super humans and being Kamitic doesn’t mean we don’t have problems. We live in a physical world, which is dynamic and always changing, so we will always have problems because nothing stands still or is for certain.   But, we know that the solution to our problems doesn’t rests in our own thinking.

It involves us learning how to access the deeper part of our mind (the superconscious part of our being or the Divine mind). This is the reason all of the Kamitic traditions have a spiritual system or cosmogram that they follow like the Kamitic Paut Neteru (the Kamitic Tree of Life) or the Maa Aankh (the Bantu – Kamitic Cross).

Let me give an example. There is an altercation that occurs and people are up in arms. One group wants strike out in anger. Another group wants to boycott or protest. Religious leaders and fraternal organizations convene and want to do something that show that they are on the peoples’ side but at the same time not want to jeopardize their standing with various parties.  Activists of all types want to talk on the radio, podcasts, etc. and keep the energy high so that something is accomplished. These are all good and valiant efforts, which I am not knocking at all but have to be considered and well thought of. But let me tell you how a Kamitic man or woman handles the situation. They talk to the Divine like their ancestors did before them through either meditation or by consulting an oracle.  

If you scoff at meditation or the use of an oracle, then you know nothing about being Kamitic. Because the whole basis of the Kamitic spiritual tradition rests on the Story of Osar (Asar, Ausar or Greek Osiris), where the hero of the story, Hru (Hrw, Heru or Horus) defeats his more learned uncle of war, Set (Set-an, Satan, Greek Typhon, the Ego-self) on the battlefield through intuitive (contemplative/meditative) means. The Story of Osar is a metaphor about the human experience. Yes, it is true that during the Council of Nicaea it was decided that the Story of Jesus was modeled after the Story of Osar to distort the Gnostic teachings.  Once it is realize that the Christian story like the Story of Osar are not to be taken literal because they are based upon similar metaphorical truths. Life is all about manifesting the Will of God on earth.

As you can see, part of the reason so many people have converted to a Kamitic path is because they have have broken the mental chains and realized that the “real devil/enemy” is not some entity or person that exists outside of themselves. The “real devil/enemy” is our lower self and who or whatever we give our personal power to. Everything that our Set (Ego-self) tells us to fear for no reason is what we give power to.That’s right, your enemy only has as much power over you as you allow them to. Once you realize your true enemy is what you fear and what you give your power to.  You will be FREE. Until that time, the answer to the question as to why does a small minority control the majority. It is because we mentally allow them to do so by buying into their reality and not investing in our own.

elephant-tied-with-rope

Now understand, when I say Ego-self, I am not talking about just being arrogant and braggadocios. I am talking about that part of our being that was hurt when we were younger and now uses that painful experience as a springboard to validate their treatment of others rather it is justified or not. I am talking about the part of our being that grew up believing that money is the root of all evil and that in order to make money you have to toil day and night, and compete and kill off others to survive. It is that old self, that old ego way of thinking that is afraid of some real spiritual work because it knows it has to make some changes. Yes! That part of our being that doesn’t want to change but would prefer.  That we sit on our loins and just bellyache, criticize and complain – Yeah, that part of our being. That part of our being that is afraid to do what is right and just, even though it is not popular.  That’s your Set, your true enemy.

So those who have truthfully become Kamitic realized that the reason we keep having the same problems and every solution they offer complicates the matter even more so, is because we are using the same thinking that created the problem symbolized as Set. We have to think outside of the box and that means doing something different. That different thing means to go deeper within our superconscious symbolized as KAMTA. This is where all of the great ideas and inventions come from. If you look at the detailed Maa Aankh cosmogram above you can see, there are no new ideas that are coming out of our subconscious because we are just reacting or surviving. This is the part of our being that functions on automatic and out of habit.  The new ideas come from the deeper parts of our awareness – the superconscious. This is where we get intuitive ideas and also where our ancestors and spirit guides can give us wise counsel.  You will also notice that this is where we get our dreams.

Spiritual culture as you can see is based upon this part of our being – our higher spirit or superconscious. It is not based upon making use of our higher spirit/self. This is the reason in the Story of Osar, Hru was finally able to defeat his uncle Set (that is do something new and improved) through the intercession of Osar. A thorough analysis of Japanese and Chinese history and culture will reveal that the reason they were able to bounce back on the world scene in a relatively short time.  Is because both of these countries embraced their folk ways, which consists of delving and tapping into their higher self (the superconscious). This is the reason why all throughout Asia you will find stalls where people can get detailed I-Ching oracle readings and partake in other practices that will help people align themselves with their higher spirit.

Fortune_teller_taiwan

Understand.  The true Kamitic has realized this and now uses his or her life as a sounding board for perfecting their understanding of the Divine within them and all people.

So, while other men and women are being swayed by half-truths, lies, and the inconsistencies of men through the various airwaves.  The true Kamitic, like other traditionalists and the traditionalists of old, are able to discern the truth and navigate through the malarkey.  Like a wise general and strike the enemy where he is most vulnerable like all of the great leaders of antiquity have done before them. Don’t be fooled by popular Greek inspired movies that depict the oracles as being either young virgin women or some old hag. These are all distorted images used by Holly-weird to discourage people from embracing the traditional ways that will liberate our soul. The true oracles were bones, shells and yarrow sticks, etc., which were used even in the bible (both the New and Old Testament). It was a practice that the ancient Hebrews learned from….Guess? That’s right…the Kamitic people for all those claiming that we were ancient Hebrews.  Our ancestors were not brought here from the East of Africa but the West of Africa, which is where the descendants of the Kamitic people fled to avoid Christian and Islamic onslaught.

That’s right. A true Kamitic or Kamite is revolutionary by nature in mind, body and spirit.

Hope that helps

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

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)

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.





Why Aren’t You Free Yet?

4 10 2014

Hetepu Family. Greetings

Have you ever thought about why after 400+ years, people are still marching and demanding that they be set free?  Well, as many of you know, I am the eldest son of a preacher who was groomed to be like my father. When I was growing up, the one thing I hated the most was when the adults who knew I was my father’s son would continue to comment and prophesied on how I would be a great preacher. Well, I proved them wrong by taking a completely alternative path to find God.  When I look back at how I decided to take this path, it comes to me that I was motivated to rebel against the church primarily out spite.

giftsusa.biz - 284 × 450 - Search by image

Unfortunately, because I spiritually left the church for the wrong reasons, even though I didn’t physically attend church, spiritually I was still a member.  You see, I still attended church spiritually because I still believed in the existence of a devil or some evil force that existed outside of me.  I remember when I was attending PVA&MU and was coming into the knowledge of self, I didn’t necessarily call this evil force the devil but I referred to it as different names depending upon one mode of thinking and who I was with.  When I changed my diet and adopted a vegetarian lifestyle this evil force was everything that was not vegan including the entire healthcare system.  When I was dealing with the Rasta I called this evil Babylon. When I got with the Five Percenters we called it the evil 10 %.  When I was just kicking it and dealing with the family that knew about secret societies, we called this evil force the Masons and other secret societies, all while claiming that we were gods and goddesses.

Things changed when I got ill and had to focus on improving my health. It was during this period of my life I began to reevaluate all that I believed. One of the things I realized was that you can’t get healthy by focusing on illness. In order to recover from an illness you have to focus on perfect health and the things you would do, if you were perfectly healthy.  It was this perspective that made see that everything happens for a reason and that from a holistic perspective, the purpose of illness is to reveal that there exists an imbalance.

Expounding upon this idea led me to see all of the fallacies of my beliefs and thinking. For instance, you can’t say that you are a god or goddess yet claim that there is a devil or some other evil force that exist and is out to get you. If you believe there is some evil force out to destroy you, then you are not a god or goddess, you are an angel opposing another angel, because technically speaking a God or Goddess has no equal called a devil.  Just like illnesses or ill-nesses reveal that there is an imbalance, the purpose of the devil is to also to reveal the imbalances that exist within your soul.

baphomet devil

When I made this discovery, it opened up the doors and led me to realize what some people might not want to hear but need to accept, that the devil is not some impish red-tailed, goat headed man running around tempting people to worship him and buy certain artists’ albums. No. The devil is within you – more specifically – it is your lower self, your subconscious self, or your ego self that has you living in the chains of fear.  It is that energy that makes you afraid to use the “Lord’s Name in vain” out of fear that you will be struck down.  It is that energy that makes you afraid to admit to your loved ones why you don’t go to church, to the temple or to the mosques.  That’s right, the devil is that energy that has you believing in the boogey man and romanticizing traditional African culture by claiming to accept everything Kamitic but refusing to embrace the Yoruba, Fon and other traditional African cultures because they honor their ancestors and worship so-called deities. You’re afraid to talk about anything magical and metaphysical because it is too close to Vodou/Voodoo. You will salute and honor the ancestral traditions of others, but for some odd reason refuse to acknowledge your own.  That’s right; meet your devil, the one that keeps telling you that your ancestors were all forced to accept Christianity, instead of acknowledging that many of them willingly converted to it. Yes, it is Fear.

Never Forget

Never Forget

Understand if you feel that you can’t do something because something bad is going to happen to you by you doing it with no true knowledge of it. You are essentially enslaved by fear.

It is a hard pill to swallow. I know it is but I got tired of living in fear and doing things that I didn’t agree with or weren’t going to help me. Once I decided to face my devil and ask the real reason why I left the church, I learned that it wasn’t because I did not like the prophesizing, but I had a real fear of the unknown. In my eyes, God had a bad habit of doing things just for the fun of it like the wager that was made between him and the devil. When I was younger and we would visit smaller churches around Detroit, I saw numerous struggling storefront preachers and it always made me wonder if God was just testing them.  I refused to be put in that situation where I had to live on faith and that’s the real reason why I left.  As soon as I acknowledged that, a mental wall came crumbling down and I found the book Conjuring Culture: Biblical Formations of Black America by Theophus H. Smith, which revealed that many of our ancestors understood the nature of their spirit (superconscious self), so they used the King James Bible as conjuring book – that is a book used to program their spirit self (subconscious and superconscious self). This is because they understood (even if they weren’t able to explain it metaphysically or psychologically) that the devil was within them. This is why many of the elders would read in the evening the Book of Proverbs.  Most of our elders all knew the 23rd Psalms and most likely made you to remember it as well or some other Psalms along with it.

moses

What many people need to understand is that the greatest atrocity that occurred due to slavery was convincing people that they were not already free, in other words gods and goddesses free to do whatsoever we willed. Many of our ancestors were aware of this which is why fictional or not, the biblical Moses became a spirit guide, an African American archetype and role model known as the great conjureman of the bible, who inspired the likes of Harriet Tubman and Dr. King.

Tubman

The point of this discourse is to help you to see that if you believe that the devil or some other evil force is out to get you, then you will see the bible and other holy books as being sacred books (or not) containing silly texts, used to save you from some evil and alien force that you fear.  And, unfortunately, that which you fear will only become stronger in your life. For instance, if you believe it is the devil, then devil will exist.  If you changed your diet out of fear becoming ill., guess what?  You will eventually become ill because what you are focusing on what you don’t want to happen.  It’s Murphy’s Law or the nature of the Spirit (See Maa).

Hru and Set - Fighting the Devil Within

Hru and Set – Fighting the Devil Within

If however, you accept that the only devil that exists in your life is that which you fear, and that fear exists only to reveal an imbalance.  Then you will see all texts as tools for tapping into your higher superconscious self in order to get what you want. For instance, instead of focusing on not getting diabetes, hypertension, etc. you focus on perfect health or maintaining perfect health.  Consequently, you get perfect health. You see, when a god or goddess understands that the devil is within them and it is their lower self they have to resist. When he or she says, “The Lord is my shepherd”, they know they are talking about their higher superconscious self, personified as Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris) within them who will guide them and give them the solution through supernatural means to overcome any obstacle as he had done his son Hru (Heru, Horus). You won’t care if certain characters in the bible or other holy books are real or not.

terror

Not only that, you won’t care about a lot of things.  Not that it isn’t important but as a god or goddess you know that you create your own reality through your own beliefs.  You are conscientious about your spirit and understand that all spiritual texts was specifically written to free your spirit.

Hope that helps. Peace





Are You A Child of God or a Man or Woman God?

27 09 2014

In Genesis 1:26, it states “Let us make man/woman in our image.” Since God is an Infinite Spirit we know that the image that is being spoken of is not a physical one, but refers to the immortality of man and woman’s soul.  This means that man and woman were created to be gods and goddesses. Now a lot of theologians like to pussyfoot around this subject because they are afraid of the truth, so they will say that this is true but Adam and Eve forfeited their divinity when they ate of the forbidden fruit.  But, this is a response from individuals that have no knowledge of Self.  Let me explain.

Adam & Eve by Haitian artist Gabriel Alix http://www.artshaitian.com/Pages/haitianartgalix.html

Adam & Eve by Haitian artist Gabriel Alix
http://www.artshaitian.com/Pages/haitianartgalix.html

We’ve been told that when Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, God commanded them not to eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.  As the story goes, Satan disguised as a serpent persuades Eve to eat of the fruit and to give some to Adam. When God learned of their wrongdoing, God cast them out and forbade them entry.

Ok. We’ve heard this before, but what if this is not the full story? What if we are missing some valuable parts that could explain a lot of things?

1relics2

Think about this. If we say that God is omniscient (all-knowing) and omnipotent, wouldn’t God had known before commanding Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit that they would eat it anyway? Wouldn’t God had known that Satan was going to tempt Adam and Eve because after all, He is All-Knowing, Right?  I mean let’s look at it from an adult perspective. If we say that God is all knowing then we need to ask ourselves why God would command Adam and Eve not to do something, knowing all the time they were going to do it anyway. I mean this is like a mother baking a cake and putting icing (and all of the trimmings on it), and then putting the cake right in front of her child and saying, as they lick their lips and eyes glimmer with delight, “Don’t touch this cake or you won’t get any of it at all.” No good parent with commonsense is that cruel, so why are we led to believe that God is cruel like this?

Don’t answer that, because it will take you away from the point that theologians keep missing. The thing is this, if God is all knowing, and God knew that the devil was going to tempt Adam and Eve to eat the fruit, because God knew they were going to eat it anyway and that God was going to kick them out of the Garden of Eden even before Adam and Eve were conceptualized. Then, this means that Adam and Eve’s expulsion was part of a Divine Plan.

Now what was this plan?

Well, again, we have to think about some things. Imagine God, I know you can’t get a clear image, but it would be fair to say that if God is all knowing and omnipotent, then God is Perfect, right? That means there is nothing that God creates by accident, which is why there is no such thing as coincidence. Everything has a purpose according to God. This would mean that Garden of Eden was perfect as well.

Ok you got that. Now, imagine being in a perfect place. In this perfect place whatever you desire is at your fingertips. You say, “Hmmm…I would like this” and voila it appears. There is no struggle, no worry, because all of your needs and wants are taking care of. Remember, Adam wanted a woman, and God was like “Shazam! Here’s a woman Adam…call her Eve.” Alright? (Laugh.)

Here’s the thing. If everything you wished and wanted was at your fingertips, because your Daddy is doing everything for you.  Yet you are being told you are created in the image of God, life in the Gardens gets pretty boring real quick. The reason is because you ain’t doing anything, you are free loading off of your Daddy.

Let me give you another example. Imagine you go out on a basketball court and shoot from the baseline and it goes in the basket. You run to corner pockets and shoot and you score. You run to the paint, shoot and score. You run to the free throw line, shoot and score. You run to the three point range, shoot and score. Now you are half court, you shoot and get the same results. You are all the way on the other side, you shoot and score. You decide to go into the bleachers and you shoot, and you score. You go to the concession stand, shoot and score. You are now in the parking lot and you shoot and score. Ok. By now you see that there is something odd about this scenario. You guessed it, there is no Opponent, not only that, there is no opposition or resistance at all.  You are already thinking it, that if you had to practice and work hard, to score and do this in the face of an opponent that was trying to achieve a similar goal. Voila! Now, we got a game.

So, what am I saying?

I am saying that Adam and Eve got bored in the Gardens, so the devil came and said, “You want to play? Eat the fruit.”

That’s right! Adam and Eve wanted some “DRAMA!”

Think of how people in these contemporary times live their lives. Have you noticed how people with the most problems, the most DRAMA are always jumping around doing things? What is the aim or goal that people with DRAMA have? Isn’t it to find peace? Yet, people with peace find their lives to be boring because they have nothing to do? Think about the saying, “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.”

It was all about wanting some DRAMA. Sounds radical huh? Well, consider this, there was no such thing as good and evil in the Gardens, but after they ate the fruit there was. Not only that, there were no children or any signs of pain, because there was no struggle in the Gardens, which means that the whole Adam and Eve story was an attempt made by some poorly imaginative individuals to explain how God was going to allow us to exercise our will.

In other words, we couldn’t be gods and goddesses in a Perfect World and God knew this. We needed to live in an imperfect world so that we could exercise our divine abilities and prove that we were gods and goddesses. This was the only way we could not only know God but truly understand and appreciate who and what we are, because nothing is more satisfying then accomplishing something yourself. Want proof? Talk to an individual that survived and beat a debilitating ill-ness. Most of these individuals overcame the illness by becoming spiritual people who know God personally. It was through this relationship with the Divine they became resilient, strong willed, determined individuals.

What this means is that there is a difference between a Child of God and a Man and Woman of God.  A Child of God is just that a “child” and like any other child, they depend upon others for their salvation. True Children of God simply follow the dogma and do what they are told out of fear that they will be punished. The world is full of Children of God, so long as they attend church or mosques, say their prayers, repent, follow the tenets of their religion, etc. they believe they will be saved. Anything else outside of these guidelines they have to seek advice or guidance from a leader, just like a good child would do when asking his or her parent permission to do something.

A Man or Woman of God knows that what makes him or her an adult is responsibility, so they take responsibility for their own salvation. They don’t stop studying and working on their spirit because it is not Sunday or someone didn’t tell them to do so. They consider the consequences of their actions and weigh how it will affect those around them. Unlike Children of God, a Man and Woman of God talks to God everyday either through prayer, meditation, divination, ritual, and especially when making decisions, because they understand that talking to God is Self-talk.  A Man and Woman of God know that their salvation is a seven day a week, 24 hour process or way of life.

In summary, a Child of God is an individual with a lot of DRAMA in their life that is trying to become a Man or Woman of God. But, the thing is, you ain’t going to become a Man or Woman of God by following another man or woman and doing what someone else tells you to do. You have to navigate or sort through your own Self-Created DRAMA in order to become the ruler of your Kingdom, and that is the point of Garden of Eden story.

There are many traditional African beliefs that tell us that we chose to be here at this time. We chose our parents before we were born into this earthly existence. Other teachings tells us we created everything that is in our life at present with our thoughts and beliefs. Why? So, we can navigate and become the Hru (Hero) of our own Story. If we think about how many times we ignore our divine consciousness in opt for for DRAMA, we will get the idea. For instance Ladies, your Spirit told you that that man wasn’t good for you because he doesn’t pay bills, treats his momma and sisters bad, etc., but you got with him anyway. Why? DRAMA. You wanted to experience that crazy DRAMA situation. Now, you need to figure out why in order to get out of it. You need to figure out how are you going to change this situation that you are in with this crazy man that you “fell in love” with for the wrong reasons. Dilemma…this is why you have to seek the Power of God within.

Same can be said for you fellas. Your Spirit told you that that woman had her priorities all wrong when you saw her “eyeing” your ride, eating junk food all the time and not taking care of her health. So, don’t complain that she won’t take care of your seed (child) like Momma Oset. That’s not what you asked for and even if you did. It was not like the Sister was going to be an incarnation of Oset (Aset, Auset, Isis). No, you got to get her there and you can’t make her do it because the more you force the issue the more she will rebel. Dilemma…this is why you have to seek the Power of God within.

Be the Hru of Your Own Story

Understand, this is not about right and wrong. This is about problem solving.  You created the DRAMA in your life for a reason. You got to understand the reason for the DRAMA. If you keep approaching your situations from a Child of God perspective, then you want God to come in and save you or clean up your own mess. If that happens (which it rarely does), you will only get a temporary break, because eventually you are going to get back into the same self-created situations again. This is why so many of us get out of so-called “non-constructive relationships” and get right back into another, as if you are going through a revolving door.  It is also the reason people with financial problems, who all of sudden get a financial boom, shortly after lose all of their money and are deeper in debt than they began with.

This all stems from Child of God complex, because this infantile perspective will always convince you that it is everyone else’s fault and everyone else has the problem (but heaven’s no…not you), thus relieving you of responsibility of your own decisions and actions. Yeah, “He’s not a good man. She’s not a good woman. It was their fault why I loss my money” but you’re the one suffering – they are not because (that’s right) it is a grand allusion created by your ego.  You are in the hellish situation you are in because you’re spending all of your time dwelling in TASETT – the Red Lands, the physical realm, the land of the devil or Set (Ego).  You’re not getting the full picture or seeing Maa, only a child’s perspective – hence the reason Set is the youngest child in the Kamitic legends and his limited power is symbolized by Right Eye of Ra or the Aakhut (the Solar Eye) at the Ra moment.

Maa Aankh with Utchat

But, if you approach your DRAMA from a Man of God or Woman of God perspective, then you will ask the hard questions, “Why did I put myself in this situation? What was I hoping to accomplish? etc.” These questions will lead you to see what’s “right” or “wrong” with YOU. That’s right because you made the decision to get into your own DRAMA, so these questions will help you to see what works or what is in balance and out of balance within yourself, hence Maa. You will understand and know the Power of God or Rau for yourself because after identifying the imbalance (or problem) you can now address it, now that you have spent time in KAMTA – the Black Lands, the spiritual realm, the land of the gods and goddess, your divine self or Osar (Asar, Ausar, Osiris), contemplating the situation in order to get a full picture about who you are and the decisions you made, hence the Left Eye of Ra – the Aabit (Lunar Eye) at the Amun Ra moment.

Yes, Children of God need rules (commandments, dogma, etc.) when it comes to their development. Men and Women of God make their own rules based upon Maa. So, I don’t know about you, but don’t you think it is time to stop being a Child of God and time to be a Man or Woman of God?

Well if so, let’s put down the toys and start being a Man or Woman of God today.

Hope that helps.





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.

Zeus on Mt. Olympus molding the lives of men

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.

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.

Hetep.
