The Difference between Kamitic Spirituality and Western Religious Beliefs

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…


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 – 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.

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.


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.


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.

What Really is the Kamitic Way?

13 01 2012

Hetepu (Peace) Fam.

I know we have talked about this in a previous post but someone asked me this question that demanded another post, so here we go?

What really is the Kamitic Way?

Does it mean you are supposed to do things (mimic) the way the Kamitic (ancient Egyptians) use to do things? Does it mean you are supposed to build pyramids, temples and sphinxes? Does the Kamitic Way mean that you are supposed to perform all sorts of ceremonies like paying homage to the Nile or Hapi, having elaborate rituals to Bast, Bes and all other outdated rituals? Does it mean that you believe in embalming and mummifying your deceased loved ones? What is so important about following the Kamitic Way?  Why it is important to follow the Kamitic Way? Can you go to church, mosque or temple and still follow the Kamitic Way?

To some these questions may sound silly but for many soul seekers these are real questions that real, serious minded individuals interested in the Kamitic Way want to know. I know because I once upon a time had to entertain these same questions.

This is why I stress that Kamit was a civilization that existed thousands of years ago. The builders of this ancient Egyptian culture were black and brown skinned Africans. The purpose of emphasizing the racial ethnicity is because Eurocentric, Christians and Islamist have tried to claim otherwise in order to promote their own agenda, etc. A clear of example of this can be seen in how contemporary Egypt in considered to be a part of the Middle East.  When in fact it is a country in Africa. Another example of this blatant bigotry can be seen in how Nubians the neighbors to the south of Kamit are always portrayed as being slaves. When in fact, the Nubians were the closest ethnically and culturally related to the Kamitic people. Proof of this can be seen in the ancient Nubian culture, which was almost identical to the Kamitic culture.    In fact, many of the contemporary Nubians still continue to follow traditions that were practiced thousands of years ago by their ancestors who dwell along the Nile in Kamit.

But, the Kamitic people traded with other Africans (the Kamitic people were Africans) as well throughout their long reign. Consequently, their cultural influences has been found throughout the Sub-Sahara Africa (i.e. Akan, Yoruba, Dogon, Bantu, etc.)  Are these Africans and the Kamitic people the same people? I don’t think so, but are they related?  No one knows for sure but they are definitely culturally related.

Born or Born Again?

So, what really is the Kamitic Way? Well, as stated before the Kamitic Way means a lot of different things. To me knowing that culturally my ancestors were related to the Kamitic people means that the Kamitic Way is a cultural practice. That being said, the same way you cannot read a book on Japanese and expect to know Japanese culture. You cannot learn the Kamitic Way just by reading a book. You have to be either born or immersed into it.

Since the Kamitic civilization is long gone. There are no more pyramid builders. There are no Kamitic kings and queens governing millions of people and controlling a vast infantry and advanced navy.  There is no lower class working in the fields to provide sustenance for an entire nation, nor is there an advance craftsman class building temples and other grand edifices.  Not to mention, the builders of the Kamitic society have been exiled or have perished thousands of years ago. It is impossible to be born into the Kamitic society of old.

The Kamitic science however continued to exist because it has been carried to four corners of the planet, as a result of migration, invasion, colonization, domestication, etc., etc. etc. the Kamitic science continued to be shared.  Some of this science preserved in the West and was later called Christianity, but as E. A. Wallis Budge puts it in his book The Gods of the Egyptians.

“The new religion (Christianity) which was preached there by St. Mark and his immediate followers, in all essentials so closely resembled that which was the outcome of the worship of Osiris, Isis and Horus.”

The difference Budge noted between the Kamitic religion of old and the New Testament version was that early Christian writers interpreted the allegorical story of Osar (Asar), Oset (Aset) and Hru (Heru) as a historical event.  And, when you compare this with the symbolism you get a much richer understanding about the Kamitic Way. (Notice if you will the colors of the above statue and how it corresponds with the maa aankh cosmogram below e.g. yellow/gold – rebirth or Amun Ra, black – innocence/birth/child – Khepera, etc.)

In Jesus: A Life, A.N. Wilson writes that:

The Jesus of History and the Christ of Faith are two separate beings, with very different stories…

Wilson, continues by saying,

Jesus, or Joshua, which is the same name, means ‘saviour’. It is the Christian belief that one of the many men in history who born this name was literally the Savior of the World. And, is for this reason that the Western World divides history itself into the time before and after the birth of Jesus.”

In other words, early Christians in their fanatic zeal misinterpreted and mistranslated the Kamitic allegorical texts. It should now become clear why there are so many God-fearing people creating havoc throughout the world. It is because they are worshiping something outside of their being. Fortunately, many Sub-Saharan Africans who were familiar with the power allegory and myth were not easily swayed by this misunderstanding. This is why when the Africans were enslaved those from regions with a vast pantheon like the Yoruba and Dahomeans syncretized their religious beliefs with Christianity.

While those from the Kongo-Angolan region who did not have a vast pantheon but a strong belief in ancestors (hence spiritual resurrection as with El Cristo Negro) identified Christ as being a type of African archetype or role model (see the maa aankh)*.

So, why is the Kamitic Way so important? It is because before all of this confusion was created.  The true intention of the allegorical Kamitic Osar, Oset and Hru legend is that Christ is within you.  And, the Kamitic Way reintroduces the path that was lost.  It was never about worshiping some inanimate object, person, place or thing. It was all about the rebirth of consciousness/soul signified by Amun Ra. Hope this helps.

* Ancient African spirituality focuses on becoming an honorable ancestor called aakhu by living like Osar or Christ-like in life so that you will be reborn (resurrected) after death, either through your descendants or as an angelic being (netcharu).
